Terms and Conditions

*Once you have paid for your travel arrangements in full, we will not pass on any cost increases for negative currency fluctuations. At the time of booking, the client must pay a non-refundable deposit of at least the following: In respect of land tours, transfers and accommodation, an amount equivalent to at least 25% of the estimated total cost. In respect of Viva Small Group Tours, an amount equivalent to at least 25% of the estimated total cost. If the booking is made inside of 95 days, then full payment is required. We may at our discretion give notice to you of any variation to the minimum deposits at any time before you pay the minimum deposit. Our receipt of payment of a deposit does not, by itself, constitute acceptance of a booking. A booking will be deemed to have been accepted once we confirm acceptance in writing by issuing a written booking confirmation. Please note that we may not hold any services for you until we receive payment of your deposit and confirm your booking, meaning that services may become unavailable or prices may increase, in which case you will be responsible for paying the increased price, and we will not be responsible if services become unavailable. The balance of the tour price, being the total estimated tour price less any deposits paid, must be paid at least 95 days prior to commencement of your first arrangement. In the event that the client wishes to vary his or her booking, the request for a variation must be made in writing. The company will use reasonable endeavours to try and satisfy the request for variation and will advise the client if it can be satisfied. If the request for variation can be satisfied: The company will advise the client of any variation in the tour price; and The client agrees to pay to the company an administration fee of $250 (plus GST if applicable) in respect of each variation requested, payable within 14 days of confirmation of the variation. If, despite the reasonable endeavours of the company, the request for variation cannot be satisfied, then it is agreed that the booking sought to be varied shall remain in existence (if the client seeks to cancel the booking, the cancellation provisions set out herein will apply). In the event that the client wishes to cancel a booked tour, then he or she must provide a written notice of cancellation (“the cancellation notice”) to the company. In the event that the cancellation notice is received by the company more than 95 days before the client’s departure date , then the company shall refund to the client all monies paid less any deposit as set out above and which deposit the company shall be entitled to retain as compensation for the work done and time spent by it. In the event that the cancellation notice is received by the company 95 days or less before the departure date, then the company shall not be obliged to make any refund to the client. In this respect, the client acknowledges that, in addition to the work done and time spent by it, the company will have paid monies to tour suppliers and it may not be possible for the company to obtain a refund from these suppliers where the cancellation notice is received within that period. Notwithstanding that, the company shall, if practical, and at its sole discretion, make such refund as circumstances reasonably permit. If due to any illness, suspected illness or failure to satisfy any required tests (such as a temperature test in relation to Covid-19): an airline or other common carrier refuses you carriage; a hotel or vessel refuses to accommodate you; or we or our suppliers (acting reasonably) exclude you from the trip and you are consequently prevented from commencing or continuing your trip, then: if you have already commenced your trip, we will provide you with reasonable assistance to arrange alternative travel arrangements or to continue the trip. This will be at your cost. if you have not commenced your trip then we regret we will not be in a position to provide such assistance. We will not be liable to refund the cost of your trip (or any part of it) because we would have already paid (or committed to pay) suppliers and we would have already performed significant work preparing for the delivery of your trip and servicing your booking. We will not be responsible to you for any loss or expenses incurred in connection with your booking (for example, airfares and visa expenses) if you are prevented from commencing or continuing your trip in these circumstances.
