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 (extra days/country combinations added on to a standard package), a $100/person customization fee will be levied.
Independent or Private Itineraries:
Due to the time required to customize itineraries for our clients, we charge a non-refundable fee of $250-$500 PER PERSON before we will commence any bookings.
- $250/pp: 1 country/1 week daily itinerary
- $500/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. (Please note this fee refers ONLY to customized, independent itineraries, not multi-country tours which our suppliers sell as a standalone tour package encompassing numerous countries).
- If your requests are highly detailed and time-consuming (more than 25 emails requesting changes), 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 maximum 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 free of charge, (1) one basic quote (a rough ballpark figure which you can expect would be your total vacation price +/- $100-$200/person). After presentation of this free quote, and prior to starting any bookings, we will require your signed credit card authorization form, in advance of further work being completed for the planning fee. If you choose to not proceed at any time, the minimum $250-$500 quote fee will be charged to your card. Thank you for your understanding.
