If Your Booking is Changed by You: If you request a change to a booking more than 45 days prior to departure, it is subject to a $50 administration fee (including H.S.T.). A name correction, change of name or change of departure date requested within 45 days of departure makes the booking subject to full applicable cancellation charges as set out below. Once travel has commenced, no changes to the booking are permitted.

If You Cancel Your Booking: The following cancellation charges apply, as of the date on which we are informed of your cancellation (date of departure is excluded when calculating these cancellation charges):

More than 45 days: deposit of $1500 plus single supplement if applicable

0-44 days: 100% of total price

Cancellation charges include H.S.T. and are effective from the day we record your cancellation request. We reserve the right to re-sell any cancelled services, tickets, etc. without a refund to you.

If Your Booking is Changed by Us: This tour is prepared months in advance, and occasionally a part of it has to be modified or is not available. On occasion, even after your booking is confirmed, we may have to make changes to your requested arrangements. Most changes will be minor, however, we may need to make a major change prior to your departure. Major changes include:

  • change of departure or return by more than 24 hours;
  • change of accommodation and/or accommodation standard;
  • increase in your costs in excess of 7% (unless government imposed); and
  • change of route requiring additional traveller identification or documentation without sufficient time to obtain this documentation before departure

If we make a major change, we will advise you as soon as possible, and you may then:

a. accept the change as offered;
select an alternate tour with Us based on availability and the applicable price; or
cancel your trip completely with a refund of the price paid, minus the non-refundable deposit.

Sometimes the hotel reserved is not available due to unexpected maintenance or over-booking, and a substitute hotel of equal or greater quality will be provided. If the hotel standard is downgraded and you accept the change as offered, a refund for any difference in price will be issued. We reserve the right to change published prices without notice and/or to pass on government imposed taxes, transportation related fees or surcharges including those for fuel or currency fluctuations to you.

Force Majeure: We may not be able to refund you in full for some or all changes made because of war or threat of war, riots, civil disturbances, terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural and nuclear disasters, fire, weather causing beach erosion, epidemics or health risks, technical or mechanical problems with transport, flight delays due to weather, government action, closed or congested airports or seaports, supplier insolvency and any events beyond our direct control.

Tour Escort: If the tour escort is unable to accompany the tour, she will be replaced and the tour will go ahead as scheduled.

It is Not the Same Away From Home: As Canadians, we enjoy a very high standard of living. In other parts of the world, uninterrupted supply of water and electricity, the local health conditions, levels of security and standards of food and drink differ from those we enjoy at home.
