Reservations, Deposits and Final payments
Unless otherwise indicated, all price rates shown are in United States Dollars and are per person sharing a double-bedded hotel room / Cabin. A non-refundable deposit of $ 250 per person is required at the time of booking. A higher deposit may be required for some tours. The balance is payable 70 days prior to departure, unless otherwise stated in the submitted proposal. If reservation is effected within 70 days of commencement of travel, the entire amount is to be submitted at time of confirmation.
Tour Operator reserves the right to cancel reservations that are not paid in full at any time after final payment is due, in which case cancellation charges will apply. Travelers making any payments by credit card agree that by signing the credit card vouchers, they agree to the terms and conditions, and agree not to request any charge backs on the card until any disputed matters are resolved with Vacations International Inc. To make a booking, either print a booking form (see pdf download on this page or ring for a hard copy to be sent) and post it to us, or use our secure online booking system by simply clicking the 'book this trip' button on the relevant trip. You can also book and make your deposit payment over the phone, but we will still need a completed booking form to confirm your place.
We are happy to accept deposit payments by credit card but prefer balances to be paid by cheque or debit card. If paying balances by credit card a 3% card charge will be added. We require a completed booking form plus a deposit, normally $250 but more on certain trips, to secure your booking. Although we apply no penalties for late bookings, you should be aware that if you book late, flight prices are likely to be higher, particularly high season and Christmas. When we receive your booking form and deposit we will send you a booking confirmation. You will receive the final invoice between eight and ten weeks before departure, together with a trip information pack.
