Don’t worry this won’t read like a Apple document.

We will do our best to act with the highest business ethically and try to exceed our customers expectations even under challenging circumstance

However we would like to have a conversation about what should be considered reasonable business behavior.

We get it.

Being an active SOFA member in Japan in the post the covid world means working under very strict and rapidly changing travel policy guidelines.

Whilst is the fair to say the clouds of uncertainty as 2021 rolls through are clearing and the vaccination rollout is well underway for military personal and the Japanese population things are still not out of the woods yet.

This is quite frankly a tricky issue manage. We are fully committed to being as flexible as possible but the reality of operating in Ski town is that accommodation is usually booked out months in advanced and the local operators and owners here only have a few precious weeks to make a return in order to sustain their businesses over the off- season. Last minute cancelations due really hurt our suppliers business as it’s challenging to replace a booking at short notice and much like an airline most of the costs of a booking occur weather you are present or not.

NisekoML have worked and pushed hard to get the maximum flexibility from our suppliers as possible and we currently the offer the most generous cancelation policy in the market.

Our commitment to you

Niseko Military Leave offers a full 100% refund on your trip prior to 3 weeks out should your unit have a change in it’s travel policy or your orders change.

After recent feedback we have extended this guarantee to cover situations where you may be under orders at short notice that makes your trip unviable.

Within 3 weeks our suppliers are not able to accommodate any more flexibility than this and 100% of the cost is due. If you are unsure about your ability to commit within 4 weeks out we suggest you cancel early for a full refund and then see if we have availability at short notice when you are aware of your position.
