CANCELLATION FEES – If you have to cancel in less than 120 days before tour date commencement your final full payment cannot be refunded.

Please note refunds are not made for cancellation of any services which are not used by you due to late arrivals, early departures, or by choice.
TRAVEL INSURANCE is not included in the cost of the tour. We now require our clients to get travel insurance at the time of paying your deposit to protect you against loss of deposit and/or final payment; injury, medical expenses, loss of baggage and personal effects etc.
We also strongly advise all our customers to declare and ensure they are covered for any pre-existing medical conditions in their Travel Insurance Policy.
Some insurance companies will not cover you for loss from border closures due to epidemics and pandemics, for “Acts of God” and other fine print details.
Do read the product disclosure statement for your insurance policy closely.
