We require a 25% non-refundable deposit per person. The balance is typically due 60 days before commencement of the arrangements, unless additional funds are required by specific hotels, airlines, etc. If this is the case, we Global Sojourns will inform you with sufficient notice. If the balance is not received prior to 60 days before departure, Global Sojourns L.L.C. reserves the right to treat the trip as cancelled. All payments may be made by check, bank transfer or major credit card (Visa/MC). Upon agreement of the itinerary, you will be sent detailed travel information and a couple of forms to fill out. Please review the information and send in a signed liability waiver with your deposit.
It is very important that you are aware of our cancellation policy which comes into force as soon as a booking is made definite (confirmed). These policies are based on those of the suppliers we are using for this itinerary. Cancellations are only effective on receipt of a written cancellation. Cancellation charges will be levied when travellers cancel their confirmed reservations. Cancellations made after the due date of full payment carry a charge, expressed as a percentage of the total booking value, and are as follows:
Within 45 days = 30%
Within 30 days = 50%
Within 20 days = 60%
Within 15 days = 100%
Please note that we contract services and accommodation of third parties who have their own cancellation policies that may differ from ours and on occasion these must be adhered to. Some parties may require partial or full payment up front in order to confirm a booking – on cancellation this larger deposit may therefore be forfeited as per the third party’s cancellation policy.
