Booking Conditions

GENERAL CONDITIONS

 

Rates: Land Prices may change due to currency fluctuations or changes in the tax.

Reservations and Payments: A completed tour application together with an initial non-refundable deposit of $700.00 per person. Final payment is due before July 1, 2013.

Cancellations: The initial deposit of $700 is non-refundable if canceled at any time. No refund applies to cancellations after July 1.

 

The following rules apply unless other conditions are stipulated in your participant’s certificate. We draw your attention to the fact that there may be extra expenses in connection with certain tours. With the customer’s cancellation of a tour up to 75 days prior to departure the deposit is lost. With cancellations 75-15 days prior to departure, a handling fee of 85% of the price of the tour will be charged. Later cancellations: the customer has no claim to reimbursement. Should war and life-threatening epidemics break out, or natural catastrophes and similar events occur within 14 days prior to departure, the trip may be cancelled free of charge. This will, however, be on condition that the Danish authorities (The Royal Danish Ministry for Foreign Affairs) directly advise against travelling to the specific area, and that the contingencies have arisen after the booking of the trip.

 

Cancellation insurance due to illness: We have created a standard insurance for all travellers. By taking out this insurance the tour can be cancelled without cost (except for the price of the insurance and possible handling charges) in the following situations: A. In the case of acute illness that requires confinement to bed (doctor’s certificate necessary) or hospitalization. B. Bereavement within the closest family (spouse, parents, children, grandparents). In connection with expensive individual tours (e.g. cruises, special safaris and luxury trips at the height of the season), the insurance premiums will be more expensive. Insurance premiums may also be higher if you wish additional coverage for example for fire, unemployment, lost point of travelling, burglary or bankruptcy filed against one’s own company. The cancellation Insurance must be taken out at the same time as the tour is booked, and it must be paid no later than the deposit is paid. A cancellation insurance covers only in case of acute illness (doctor’s certificate necessary) and cannot be taken out after the deposit is paid. Please notice, that the premium is not refunded when a tour is cancelled, regardless of the reason for the cancellation
