I'm looking to make a booking to do a 4d 3n trek to Machu Picchu. I'll be going during the peak hiking season this year when I know it's very busy. I'm looking at going in May.
I've found a couple of companies that I would be happy to go with but I have noticed that they require at least a $200 deposit (non-refundable) or sometimes 50% of the price upfront when you make the booking. What happens if I pay the deposit and they email me back saying they can not match my selected dates because of no space on the tour or the park limit is reached? Do I lose the deposit? Am I suppose to wait until they review my booking application and let me know if space is available on the date I requested?
Any info/advice would really help, thanks!
