Prices for our products are subject to change without notice. Our prices are subject to variable and seasonal pricing (standard practice within the travel industry). Our prices may vary at any time (market conditions and availability).

We reserve the right to impose surcharges (up to 10% of the package price) before departure due to local reasons (exchange rates, increase of costs, taxes, etc.).
There is also a possibility of surcharge to all purchases made by credit card. Most of our holidays are usually based on twin sharing basis. Thus, a single room supplement is sometimes applicable. As a solo traveler, you have two options:
• You can be paired up with another traveler of the same gender (Shares are not guaranteed).
• You will pay for a single supplement if you don’t want to share a room with someone else.
Please note that a levy of up to 3% may be applied to all purchases made by credit card/ debit card.
