A Sportsman on LandTrust has 48 hours from the time the Landowner accepts their booking request to cancel their booking and receive a full refund. After 48 hours from the moment the Landowner accepts a booking, there is no refund available to the Sportsman. This is applicable to all bookings on LandTrust unless the booking is accepted with 48 hours from the start of the booking itself in which case there is no refund available due to it being a late booking.
The LandTrust community is powered by our Landowners who list their land for our Sportsmen book trips on. Without them, LandTrust would cease to exist. Because of this, our cancellation policy is very biased towards our Landowners. Unlike other types of bookings (hotels, flights, etc.) where the activity can take place 365 days per year, LandTrust bookings are for hunting and fishing activities, which have state-mandated seasons during which those activities can legally occur. This means that our Landowners only have so many days per year that they can accept & make money from LandTrust bookings. Because of this, we need to protect those very valuable days for our Landowners.
Many Landowners have told us that prior to becoming a LandTrust Landowner, one of their biggest issues was getting paid by sportsmen who had arranged to come on their property. Stories of last-minute cancellations with no way to re-book those dates or even not getting paid after a sportsman had hunted their property were told to us. Our strict cancellation policy is a major reason why so many Landowners choose to list their properties on LandTrust offering our Sportsman community so many great hunting opportunities!
Extenuating Circumstances: Some of our landowner hosts offer access in locations that require sportsmen to draw a tag to hunt. With that in mind, some of our landowners have agreed to allow sportsmen to book a hunt in advance, then refund the sportsmen for their trip if they do not successfully draw a tag. This is not offered for all bookings and must be clarified with a LandTrust representative prior to booking. The sportsmen must provide an image of their draw results to the LandTrust team within 7 days of receiving them in order to be issued a refund.
