By booking a trip with us you are deemed to have agreed to these Booking Conditions and your booking will be accepted by us on this basis. The services to be provided are those referred to in our offer sent to you by mail or presented on the website. All tours and offers are subject to availability.
Dates and itineraries are valid as per offer/booking online. Changes for private tours can be made three weeks before the travel date. Later changes are possible on a case-to-case basis, depending on third-party flexibility.
You are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of a minimum of 10 percent of the trip, for any travel above 150 Euro. Subject to discussion due to covid situation.
If we accept your booking we will issue an invoice and an offer where all details are included. A contract will exist between us from the date you make a payment based on the offer we have sent you.
Payment of the balance of the trip is done seven days in advance if paid by bank transfer or in cash on the first day of the trip, except differently agreed in the e-mail communication. For self-guided service charges, once the company does all the bookings and provides the client with all the required details no refunds are available.
Our trip prices are subject to variable and seasonal pricing, both of which are standard practices within the travel industry. This means our trip prices may vary at any time in accordance with demand, market conditions, and availability. It is likely that different passengers on the same trip have been charged different prices. Your best option if you like the price you see is to book at that time. Any reduced pricing or discounts that may become available after you have paid your deposit will not apply. If you wish to cancel your booking to take advantage of a cheaper price, full cancellation conditions apply.
In order for us to confirm the travel arrangements you must provide all requested details, they include but are not limited to: full name as per passport, date of birth, nationality, copy of your passport, passport number, passport issue, and expiry date, and any pre-existing medical conditions you have which may affect your ability to complete your travel arrangements.
