To proceed with a booking, we need you to complete, sign and return the Tour Booking Form to us along with a 20% deposit to begin the booking process or to hold any tentative reservation on a confirmed basis. Depending on the period of travel and specific payment policies imposed by our suppliers, we will notify you at time of booking if we need to collect a higher deposit and the international airfare if you are arranging it though us. The deposit collected will be treated as part payment of the holiday. It is strongly recommended that you hold adequate travel insurance for the holiday from the time of booking.
Receipt of the deposit and Booking Form does not guarantee nor imply confirmation of the booking until we issue a confirmed itinerary along with a proforma invoice stating the final payment due date. It is the responsibility of the guest to make sure that the company receives the payment by the due date, failure of which may render the forfeiture of the deposit.
If we are unable to confirm all the arrangements, we will discuss the alternatives and re-quote if necessary. If the option becomes materially different, you will be offered an alternative or a full refund without any cancellation charges.
