All our bookings are made based on the requirements provided to us by you and are subject to availability. Before any booking is confirmed, the details of the booking will be provided to you via email. When you have confirmed that all the requirements for your trip have been met and you are satisfied with the proposed itinerary, we will proceed to the payment. Once the payment has been received we will provide you with a booking confirmation. Once you receive the booking confirmation, please check that all the relevant personal information you have provided including the dates, times and other specific details are correct. Where this has not been done and there is a delay in notifying us about any changes in the confirmed bookings, you will be responsible for any additional charges that arise as a result, this also includes alterations that may need to be made to the booking.
A binding contract between us and you (the lead name on the booking) is only formed when we issue our booking confirmation (by email or post) after having received payment from you, in cleared funds, of either the required deposit or the full price of your holiday (depending on when the booking is made relative to the intended departure date). By making the booking you accept that you have the authority to bind all members of your party to these terms and conditions of booking and you take responsibility as the lead name on the booking to make payment and to receive documentation on behalf of your party.
2. PAYMENT AND PRICES
We reserve the right to change/alter the prices of any trips set out in our written proposal to you at any time before your booking is confirmed. The prices quoted will be in USD United States Dollar.
The prices we provide to you will be inclusive of taxes and where applicable, all additional fees and charges and other costs. If any costs cannot be calculated before the finalisation of your contract, we will let you know at the time of booking about the additional costs which you may need to bear.
Please note that all payments taken on debit or credit cards will be taken in USD United States Dollar and so if you are a customer whose payment card is not denominated in USD, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. In order to avoid this, we recommend doing a bank transfer direct to our bank account via Telegraphic Transfer.
In order to make a booking, a deposit will be required. The amount payable as a deposit will vary depending on the nature of your trip and will be confirmed to you before you make your booking. If a booking is made less than 90 days prior to departure, the full price of the trip will be payable when confirming the booking. Your booking confirmation will also provide you with the dates the balance payment is due. If, following the payment of a deposit at the time of booking, any balance remains unpaid within 90 days of the intended departure date, we reserve the right not to issue travel documentation and treat your booking as cancelled. In such circumstances cancellation charges will be applied as set out below.
Payments must be made in the currency of the invoice and you will be responsible for any bank charges that may be incurred. Payments can be made by cheque, bank transfer, debit or credit card. In all cases, a booking will not be confirmed until we are in receipt of cleared funds. All card payments are encrypted using the internationally accepted security system, SSL and Wave Apps will be used to process all online card payments.

4. AMENDMENTS AND CANCELLATIONS BY YOU
Once a booking has been confirmed to you, the confirmed itinerary will be arranged. If after this you wish to alter the arrangements, we will make every effort to assist you. Requests for an amendment must be made in writing to us via email. As all our holidays are tailor made, the implementation of any changes is time and work intensive. We therefore charge $200 per amendment per booking, in addition to all communication charges and expenses incurred by us and any charges incurred or imposed by our suppliers. These charges will be payable whether or not, we succeed in confirming the requested amendment. Your request may be treated as a cancellation and rebooking by our suppliers and in these circumstances their cancellation charges will apply.
All cancellations must be notified to us in writing and will only be effective when we have acknowledged receipts of your request via email. All payments are non refundable even if cancelled.
Should you wish to cancel a holiday and re-book an alternative, this will be subject to the cancellation terms within these conditions.

3. Offer an alternative that is similar in the standards and deemed equal to the confirmed booking.
You must notify us within the stipulated time as stated in the notice of amendment. If we do not receive any answer within the stipulated time, we would have no choice but to cancel the booking and refund the monies paid.
