Once the trip has started, if a request is made to change the contracted services for reasons not related to the agency (e.g., extending the number of nights of stay, changing the flight), the prices of the touristic services may not correspond to those published on the website that prompted the contract.

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