The fees we charge
Pre-packaged Itineraries (all tours listed on our website are pre-packaged itineraries):
We book pre-packaged tours that appear on our site with NO FEES (the suppliers pay us commission to sell their tours).
However if you request any customization to a basic package, the below "package customization" fee will be added.
Package Customization or Independent Itineraries:
Due to the time required to customize itineraries for our clients, we charge a non-refundable fee of $150-$300 PER PERSON
1) $150/pp: 1 country/1 week daily itinerary
2) $300/pp: 2 or more countries detailed, day-by-day with hotels, sightseeing, and transportation between cities/countries and/or destinations) for customized or detailed point-to-point independent itineraries, or 2 week daily itineraries.
3) If your requests are highly detailed and time-consuming, we may charge up to 10% of your booking total.
- For groups of 4 or more persons travelling together, we will reduce this customization fee as appropriate.
- For last minute, detailed planning, and/or fully non-commissionable items being booked, this fee could be higher than $300/pp up to a miximum of 10% of your booking total, but we will always advise you of the amount you can expect to pay for our professional and detailed advice in advance of any charges or planning being completed.
- We always give you the option to not move forward with any planning, but we do ask that you respect our professionalism and refrain from asking us to work out a daily itinerary for you for free.
NOTE: We will provide one basic quote (to give you a ballpark figure of how much your travel plans should come to roughly) free of charge. Once we start customizing any itinerary, we will request a credit card authorization form to be signed in advance of further work being completed for the planning fee. Thank you for your understanding.
