Refund Policy: Full refund if request received before midnight February 1st, 50% before midnight February 15th, No refunds after February 15th. Notes: Air travel - there are not a lot of direct flights into Tucson, so it is recommended that regions sending multiple volunteers try to find flights that only have a single connection, a number of those are 1.5hr layovers depending upon the airline and airport. Travel to and from the Casino Del Sol - Uber and Lyft are available in Tucson, but the wait is generally longer (not as many drivers) than in larger metropolitan areas. It is suggested to either make an Uber / Lyft reservation or travel as a group and rent a car at the airport. Some pre-EXPO planning can go a long way to cost savings for your region and area.
