Quotes, Rates and Price Variations: Our quotation system accesses both live pricing and static pricing depending upon the supplier. It is not uncommon for suppliers (e.g. Airlines, Cruise Liners and Hotels) to sell out, alter or withdraw prices including advertised special rates. If prices, rates or inclusions vary from your quotation or from an advertised price, we will advise you of any change prior to your booking request and any transaction being processed. If you do not wish to proceed with the booking at the new price, you must notify us prior to the transaction being processed.
Once your booking has been confirmed and payment received, any new specials released cannot be applied to your existing booking. Prior to full and final payment, quoted rates may need to be updated in the event of a change to pricing made by the wholesalers or other suppliers (e.g. exchange rate changes). If the cost of any service increases due to exchange rate fluctuations, price increases, tax changes or any other reason, you are required to pay the increase when notified by us or you may elect to cancel the booking.
We are not liable in any way if any increase occurs due to exchange rate fluctuations, taxes or supplier notifications. Rates quoted are approximate to the product at the time of quoting and these rates may change prior to the travel date. All prices are subject to availability and can be withdrawn or varied without notice.
Bookings – Deposits & Final Payments: Travel vouchers and booking confirmations cannot be issued until final payment is received. If you fail to pay by the due date, we reserve the right to automatically charge the credit card provided to complete the final payment and/ or cancel the reservation. Any booking not paid in full by the due date is subject to automatic cancellation without further notification. Any deposit paid will be forfeited or, at your request, it may be used as a payment towards an alternative booking. Deposit conditions for certain accommodations and tour products may vary and we will advise you of these conditions and request your consent prior to proceeding with the booking.
