Reservation & Refund Policy

Bus Trip Mission

The Sierra Club mission is to explore, enjoy and protect the planet.  Thank you for your participation and support.


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.

How to Sign Up for a Bus Trip

We accept sign ups on a first-come, first-served basis. We offer easy to difficult trips depending on the location. Please select your bus trip based on your physical condition and the trip’s level of difficulty.

Registration is available online through this website only.

Refund Policy

Note that sickness, injury, or work schedules are not grounds for a refund.  If you must cancel, send an email to the Trip Coordinator and Lead of the outing ASAP. Your refund depends on us filling your seat on the bus.

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.
  4. If you are on the wait list, and you cancel before you are transferred to the trip.

Shared cost outings:

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.

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.
