Where possible, we will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.

You have the right to cancel your confirmed tour before departure without paying a cancellation charge in the event of “unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances” occurring at your tour destination or its immediate vicinity and significantly affecting the performance of the tour or significantly affecting the transport arrangements to the destination.
