Refund Policy

The World Bear Weekend planning committee makes financial decisions based on registrations and the timeliness of money deposited into our event account. We realize events happen in each person’s life that can cause a sudden change in plans to attend the event.  Below are the refund policy guidelines to which our event staff will follow:

 

Payment Card Processing
Accepted Cards:  World Bear Weekend accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express branded credit, debit, or check cards. Cash is accepted in person only.  Money orders and cashier’s checks will be accepted in most instances.  Personal checks will only be accepted up to 30 days before the event begins to allow time for payment to clear.

Refund Policy:  Most refunds will be subject to a $25.00 administration fee. No refund request will be processed if the item has not settled. Refunds will be processed within 7-10 business days of receipt of written request for refund (email or postal service). Refunds will be made to the original payment mechanism unless noted otherwise below.
