Please read this information prior to making your reservation.
The information presented in our brochure is correct to the best of our knowledge, but is subject to change without notice. Changes can occur with respect to prices, itineraries, duration of holidays, service standards, tour content, airfares and schedules. This is out of our control. Please ensure you advise details of your requirements at the time of booking.
GOODS AND SERVICES TAX (GST)
The Australian GST does not apply to international travel. Any service fees, courier, cancellation and amendment fees are subject to GST. You will be charged GST where applicable.
A deposit is required to confirm your booking (varies depending on package booked). Receipt of deposit will be taken as an understanding by Destination International Holidays that the customer has checked their confirmed travel arrangements and has read and agreed to the terms and conditions.
Full payment must be received by Destination International Holidays no less than 120 days before travel, unless required earlier by any supplier.
All prices for our tours are advised in Australian Dollars ($AUD). They are based on airfares, schedules and tariffs at the time of printing. Destination International Holidays reserves the right to vary the cost of the tour, taxes and airline prices if necessary by reason of currency fluctuation, cost increase, or airfare increase. All prices are subject to confirmation from local tour operators. Once full payment has been received by Destination International no surcharges in respect to currency fluctuations will be applied.
Destination International Holidays reserves the right to amend the itinerary for reasons such as service requirements, road or weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Where a change is of a significant nature, it will be advised to our customers in writing. Destination International Holidays reserves the right to substitute hotels, lodges, inns or camps with properties of similar standard.
Any deviation to packages advertised or quotes will incur a fee of $150 per person.
Should you need to alter your confirmed reservations, there will be an automatic fee charged of $150 per amendment or transaction, plus any new arrangements made. Additionally, there may be cancellation fees levied by the tour operator or fees may be applicable where arrangements have been pre-purchased.
In addition, Destination International Holidays charge:
– $50 per person for all airline seat reservations and baggage charges plus any airline fees.
– $100 per person for all Tourist visa processing plus the cost for the visa fee.
– $75 per person to reissue any travel documents lost in the mail.
– $100 per person to process travel insurance claims and provide a statement for your insurance company.
– $50 per person travel document printing fee
This office will charge a 15% cancellation fee on all refundable portions of a cancelled tour. All tour cancellations must be received in writing.
Cancellation fees will be levied relative to the amount of notice given as follows:
|Days of Notice||90 or more||75-90||65-75||65-1|
|% of Booking||Loss of deposit & 50% loss of airfare||75%||85%||100%|
The above are Destination International Holidays cancellation fees. Airlines and Tour Operators may have additional fees. Transfer of a confirmed booking to another tour or departure date is deemed a cancellation of the original booking. There will be no refund for cancellation of unused services on or after commencement date. Please note that employees of any overseas suppliers are not authorised by Destination International Holidays to make any undertakings to our clients in respect of refunds or other matters.
There will be variations in the size, standard and presentation of rooms and facilities within individual hotels or other properties. This is beyond the control of Destination International Holidays.
You must be insured for the duration of your trip. You need comprehensive travel insurance to cover cancellation, health requirements, luggage and additional expenses. Insurance policies rarely cover for loss of cash.
If you encounter any problems on your holiday, you should try and solve it directly with the supplier whilst overseas. If it is not possible to do so, please submit your claim in writing within 30 days of completing your Destination International Holidays arrangements.
