PAYMENT & CANCELLATION: Once you have decided on a tour and it is confirmed you will have to pay a deposit to secure your reservation. Generally a U$250 deposit per person holds your reservation. There are exceptions for special events, certain holiday periods or if a particular supplier involved with your tour requires additional funds. You will be informed of the correct deposit amount in your invoice. The balance is due in our office 45 days before departure unless otherwise noted.

Should you have to cancel after paying the final payment but at least 30 days prior to departure an in house credit equal to the total value of the package (less the deposit and/or any cancellation fees of the various suppliers affected such as the airlines, hotels, ground transportation services, etc.) will be extended.
