Cancellation policy:
We require a minimum of 48 hours (from the scheduled meeting time) if a cancellation is necessary for a full refund. This is so we can schedule other passengers in your place. Absolutely no refund of flight rate for cancellations made less than 48 hours or for a no show at the scheduled meeting time the day of the flight. Full refund is available for flights canceled by Roping The Wind Hot Air Balloon Company due to inclement weather, etc. if rescheduling is not an option. Gift Certificate flights not canceled within the cancellation policy will forfeit the use of the gift certificate and it will be considered flown.

Please understand, we are a small company that offers very personalized service. We typically put up only one balloon per available flight slot. If there is a last minute cancellation or a no show the morning of the flight, we are left ‘grounded’ with no ability to put other passengers in place and we lose that flight. While we fly because we love to fly, this is also how your pilot makes his living!
