The Agent is in all cases liable for payment to The Provider of all monies due in relation to these services.
If, in exceptional circumstances, The Provider agrees payment may be made direct by the travelling passenger(s) or their appointees for any part or in full, this does not in any way relieve The Agent under this Agreement, and both parties shall be held jointly and severally liable.
The Provider is not the tour operator, but acts as a broker for individual suppliers used in connection with the travel itinerary. Therefore it is the full responsibility of The Agent to comply with any relevant EU Package Travel Directives, or similar laws, regulations and guidelines, applying to package holidays or retail travel regulations in their jurisdiction.
The booking is confirmed after a 30% non-refundable deposit is received. Payment of a deposit is a direct acceptance of these terms and conditions. The deposit is calculated at 30% of the total booking value and is not refundable.
Balance of payment is due 90 days prior to arrival.
Invoices are issued net, and do not include any commissions or mark-ups for The Agent.

If, in exceptional circumstances, The Provider allows payment by Credit Card, Charge Cards or Debit Card of part or all of the invoice amount which is subsequently dishonoured or recalled for any reason by the card provider this in no way relieves the liability for full payment to be made by the Agent or travelling passenger.
Services will only be provided by The provider upon receipt of full payment of all invoices in relation to the itinerary.
In the event of any confirmed reservation being cancelled, the following cancellation fees will be charged:
Penalty of 30% of the total booking value, if cancelled up to 91 days prior to arrival.

Any exceptions granted to this cancellation policy must be confirmed in writing by The Provider, and will not alter the overall Terms & Conditions of the agreement.
