Under no circumstances shall prices be reviewed upwards in the twenty (20) days prior to the arrival date, regarding bookings already made and confirmed. Prices given include VAT where applicable.

The outings, visits and services not expressly listed as included in the booking details, or described as optional, do not form part of the agreement.

The user who wishes to cancel their booking or the services requested or contracted, is entitled to reimbursement of the amount paid, but must indemnify the Agency for the items detailed below:

11. CANCELLATIONS BY THE AGENCY – MINIMUM GROUP
In the event that the provision of a booking (accommodation or service) is subject to having a minimum number of participants, and is thus specified, the agency may cancel the booking in the event that this minimum number of participants is not attained, notifying the customer in a minimum term of three (3) days prior to the scheduled date of the outing. Likewise, the agency may also cancel a journey by reason of force majeure, classing as such those abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances beyond the control of the party pleading such a case, the consequences of which were unavoidable, despite having acted with due diligence. In both cases, the consumer shall be entitled to a refund of the amounts paid, except for management costs.
If before running a service the organiser is forced to modify the essential elements of it significantly, it must notify the customer in writing, so the latter may choose between cancelling the booking or agreement and accepting the changes to the booking initially contracted. If prior to commencing the service or during the latter, the travel agency is unable to provide any of the services that comprise the conditions agreed upon, the agency will offer the user a full refund for this service, or its substitution for another of similar characteristics. Any service not provided shall be reimbursed at the end of the booking, upon prior presentation of the corresponding notification issued by the person or entity responsible. No refund whatsoever shall be made for services voluntarily unused by the customer, whatever the reason for non-use may be. On journeys contracted with sailing and/or motor vessels associated to the booking, the captain or skipper responsible reserves the right to vary or alter destinations, routes or stays in port, depending on weather conditions, having previously informed customers, to safeguard the latter’s safety, without the customer being entitled to any claim and/or indemnity whatsoever.
