  • The remaining 65% of the tour price is due 30 days before the tour is to commence. Southbound Escapes has the right to cancel the booking made if full payment is not received by that date or before the tour due to commence. 

  • The whole or part of any payment made may be non-refundable.  For further details, refer to clause 4.

  2. Prices: All prices are subject to availability and bookings can be withdrawn or varied without notice until full payment is made. The following applies:

  • The price is guaranteed to be available on receipt of the full tour price.

  • After receipt of the full tour price, price increases may occur by reason of factors outside our control which may result in an increase in the cost of the product or service. Such factors include adverse currency fluctuations, fuel surcharges and taxes. 

  1. Refunds, Changes and Cancellation Fees: These policies will apply:

  • Changes: Fees and extra charges will apply where a booking is changed by the guest. Fees and extra charges will also apply when tickets or documents are re-issued. 

  • Cancelled bookings will incur cancellation fees. These fees can be up to 100% of the cost of the booking, regardless of whether or not the tour has commenced. These cancellation fees will be in accordance with supplier cancellation policies and will include our cancellation fee. Where we incur any liability for a cancellation fee or charge for any booking which you cancel, you agree to indemnify us for the amount of that fee or charge. 

  • We will not be able to provide a refund to you until we receive the funds from the relevant supplier. 

  • If for any reason a supplier is unable to provide the services stated in the itinerary, then your remedy lies against the supplier, unless we have failed to properly make the booking.

Change of arrangements: You acknowledge that travelling with us requires a degree of flexibility, good humour, and an understanding that the itinerary, accommodation, and/or modes of transport may change, even after a tour’s commencement, without prior notice due to local circumstances.

We do not accept any responsibility for loss of enjoyment, delays or compensation resulting from circumstances beyond our control. We reserve the right to change any part, or the whole, of the arrangements contained within the itinerary, should conditions or circumstances beyond our reasonable control determine such action necessary. In such cases, we will use our reasonable endeavours to provide alternatives of the same standard, quality and duration as the original itinerary. You will have the right to cancel your tour, in which case cancellation fees will be payable you. 

  5. Amendments: An amendment is a change to an existing booking with the same inclusions.  Any supplier amendment fees will be charged.
