If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

i) Such cancellation implies that the client is responsible for the payment of all charges arising from the beginning of the fulfillment of the contract and their withdrawal, as well as a percentage that can go up to 15% of the price of the trip.
