Please ensure that you carefully read and understand both the general terms and conditions and the online sales conditions before making an online reservation.
VALIDITY OF PRICES AND AVAILABILITY
The prices advertised on our online sales site remain valid as long as the user remains connected to the session in question. Should the user become disconnected or should the session close, prices may be different when re-connecting. Before making a reservation, the availability and price of the services you wish to purchase are subject to change without notice.
Prices are based on the local currency rate at the time of quotation, converted according to the current exchange rate as determined by our suppliers. Prices are subject to change without notice until a reservation is confirmed.
Unless otherwise stated, prices do not include any local taxes or fees, such as foreign departure fees, security, port fees, parking fees, customs, immigration, agricultural fees, airport taxes or international transportation taxes. Prices do not include gratuities that may be given to tour leaders, drivers or local guides, passport and visa fees, personal and luggage insurance, any items of a personal nature, taxes or duties, and any food or drink not explicitly listed under “Price Includes” on the product pages of the Website.

For all modifications or additions to the package booked online, a fee of 50$ per person will be charged for the processing of the file, in addition to the inherent fees of the suppliers to the modification or addition. The client must communicate by email indicated on his confirmation email. A change of date will be considered as a cancellation and subject to the conditions of cancellation of Deztination.travel and its suppliers. Theater, show, and special event tickets cannot be changed. The sale of these tickets is binding and final and cannot be changed after the original purchase has been confirmed.
It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance before you leave to cover cancellation costs.
Some credit cards include coverage when you use it to pay for your package. Check with your card issuer to find out what coverage they offer.
The cancellation conditions for trips booked with deztination.travel on destination.travel may, in some cases, reflect the cancellation conditions of our suppliers and partners. It is possible to ask us for the cancellation conditions for each service of your reservation if applicable. In case of cancellation after having paid the final payment, the cancellation fee will represent what the suppliers and partners charge to deztination.travel according to the contracts negotiated between them and the following fees:
- 72 hours or more before the departure date: $50 administration fee per person and the cancellation fee of the supplier(s)
- Less than 72 hours to 48 hours before departure date: 50% of the total amount of the invoice is non-refundable as well as the cancellation fees of the supplier(s).
- Less than 48 hours and less before departure date: 100% of the total amount of the invoice is non-refundable.
- Theater, shows, and special event tickets cannot be modified or canceled. The sale of these tickets is binding and final and cannot be changed after the original purchase has been confirmed.
It can happen that the cancellation conditions of a supplier are more severe than those of deztination.travel. In this case, the conditions of the supplier will prevail and these fees will be added to those indicated above. Contact us to know the conditions of cancellation for each service if necessary or consult your transaction confirmation.
If you wish to cancel your purchase, you must contact us immediately by telephone. Under no circumstances will sending an email or leaving a voicemail message without receiving a response from a destination travel agent cancel your online purchase.
A cancellation request must be made in writing and the date of receipt of the notice will be used as the date of cancellation in calculating the fee charged by the supplier(s). These cancellation fees vary by supplier and/or type of service and are calculated based on the number of days the cancellation is recorded in relation to the travel date.
Any change made to the reservation (including, but not limited to, the names and number of travelers, dates, destination or duration of the trip) may be considered a cancellation and subject to the supplier’s cancellation fees.
Deztination.travel reserves the right to charge additional cancellation or change fees, in addition to any other fees charged by the service provider.
No refund will be given for any service not used, voluntarily or otherwise, during your stay, nor can it be rescheduled to a later date. If you were unable to use your service due to the fault of a provider, it is recommended that you make arrangements with the provider on site for a refund or rescheduling of service.
If you have a complaint or a problematic situation to share with us, you must contact Deztination.travel immediately so that we can try to remedy the situation when it occurs. If the situation occurs outside of our business hours, please send us the information in writing within 7 days of your return.
