Reservation & Refund Policy

Bus Trip Mission

The Sierra Club mission is to explore, enjoy and protect the planet. These bus trips, sponsored by the Sierra Club, provide us with the opportunity to explore and enjoy our local wilderness areas. In addition, these outings raise money for the local San Diego Chapter to help fund the Sierra Club mission. Our Sierra Club bus trips are planned to avoid the possibility of a financial loss and may earn a surplus after expenses. Participants are entitled to their share of the surplus if the surplus is $25/person or 10% of the per-person fee, whichever is greater. If you are notified that your trip had such a surplus, you will be advised of the amount and of the methods to process the refund or donate the funds to the Bus Trip program. This donation is not tax deductible.


Our bus trips are open to all Sierra Club and non-Sierra Club members, 18 years of age and older. If you’re not currently a member, we encourage you to join the Sierra Club through their website. Our bus trips could not exist without the support of the Sierra Club and we would appreciate your support.

Refund Policy

Note that sickness, injury, or work schedules are not grounds for a refund.

A full refund is possible only if:

  1. You are unable to make the trip but the Sierra Club is able to fill your seat.
  2. The Sierra Club cancels the bus outing.
  3. The trip leader determines that you shouldn’t be on the trip.

A partial refund is possible:

  1. We keep $25.00 if you cancel no less than 60 days prior to the outing.
  2. We keep $100.00 if you can cancel less than 60 days but more than 30 days prior to the outing.
  3. We keep the entire amount if you cancel less than 30 days prior to the outing.

San Diego Chapter of the Sierra Club reserves the right to take photographs and/or videos during any Sierra Club bus trip, and to use those photographs and/or videos for marketing purposes for the Sierra Club. As a participant on one of our trips, you therefore are agreeing to let your image be used in such photographs and/or videos. Participants who do not wish their images to be used in this manner should notify the trip leader in advance.
