Trip Cancelation

Regent University may cancel any study abroad/tour for events beyond its control, including but not limited to instability in a destination country, acts of God, war (whether declared or undeclared), Terrorist activities, incidents of violence, public health issues or quarantine, substantial currency fluctuations, strikes, government restrictions, fire or severe weather conditions that make it impossible or commercially unreasonable in the opinion of Regent University to conduct the tour. If Regent University cancels the tour for any such reason, travelers will NOT receive a refund for monies paid. Therefore it is strongly recommended that personal Trip Cancelation insurance be purchased at the travelers own expense. 
Cancellation by Regent University for causes described in this section shall not be a violation of its obligations to any traveler.

We encourage all study abroad/tour travelers to protect themselves with the “Cancel For Any Reason Insurance” plan. The plan provides comprehensive protection for travelers should something unexpected happen during or prior to the tour. Regent University has partnered with RoamRight if you choose to purchase this addition insurance.
