Admin Fee for Backing Out of a Trip

Closed to new replies

Bill P.
Group Organizer
San Diego, CA
An inordinate amount of time is spent performing refunds for people who back out of our boat trips. I'm not speaking of the times weather or the boat itself cancel, but rather individual members backing out of viable trips.

To address this, Power Scuba will begin adding on an administrative fee (on top of the .31 Paypal fee) to refunds made to individuals. This admin fee will go into our group funds and used for the betterment of the group and its members.

The size of the fee will be 9% of the trip cost. (Capped out at $15.00 maximum for local events.)

I must stress this fee is not punitive. Nor will the legitimacy (or lack thereof) of someone's reason for backing out be judged or discussed. This new fee is simply an acknowledgement that the group Organizer's time is worth something.

Obviously too, once you sign up for a boat/event you should make every good faith effort to attend as it becomes logistically painful to administer multiple back-outs over the course of the weeks leading up to a departure time.

Thanks for understanding and we look forward to seeing you on a trip soon,


President, Power Scuba
