Prepayment, cancellation, no-show and fine print

By making a Tour Reservation with a Tour Provider, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that Tour Provider, and to any additional terms and conditions of the Tour Provider that may apply to your Tour (including the important information made available on our website and the relevant house rules of the Tour Provider). The relevant terms and conditions of a Tour Provider can be obtained with the relevant Tour Provider.

The general cancellation and no-show policy is the following one:

  • Cancellation of the trip can be made without penalty up to 50 days before the trip.
  • Cancellations made between 36 and 49 days before the trip will have a surcharge of 50%
  • Cancellations within the 35 days prior to the trip will have a cancellation charge of 100%.
  • The same conditions apply in the case of the cancellation of an individual client. No shows will be treated as a cancellation and will incur 100% cancellation fee.

Applicable city/tourist tax may still be charged by the Tour Provider in the event of a no-show or charged cancellation.

Please note that a Tour Reservation which requires down payment or prepayment may be cancelled without prior notice of default or warning in case the relevant amount(s) cannot be collected in accordance with our general payment policy or the specific policy of the Tour Provider as mentioned on the product page.

Please carefully read the important information on the product pages of our website and in your reservation confirmation for additional policies.

If you have a late or delayed arrival on the meeting / check-in date, make sure to promptly communicate this with the Tour Provider so they know when to expect you, to avoid cancellation of your Tour or charge of the no-show fee.
