Booking and confirmation:
In connection with booking, we send out an order stating the price of the trip.

If we cannot confirm the arrangement in accordance with your booking, you have the right to cancel the purchase and we will refund the down payment. In these cases, we offer options that you have the opportunity to accept or reject. Exceptions apply in cases where the airline ticket is already printed and does not allow reimbursement. We do not normally post the air ticket until the other arrangements are confirmed, unless the traveler has approved it. If you book your trip less than 30 days before departure, the full payment for the trip must be made to us promptly.
