Terms & Conditions
Please read these carefully as bookings are accepted only in accordance with the terms and conditions set out below.
From the time we receive your initial payment and completed booking form, a contract exists between you and TSC Travel.
A deposit of 40% of total payment is required upon reservation.We accept payments by credit card and bank transfer. If you pay by bank transfer, we will ask you to fax or e-mail the payment receipt. If you pay by credit card, then you will need to fill in the relevant form and send it to us. The balance of the cost must be paid at least 45 days before the scheduled start. If booking 45 days or less from the scheduled start, payment must be made in full. If after paying your initial deposit you do not pay the balance of the cost of the holiday 45 days before departure, TSC Travel reserves the right to cancel your booking.
TSC Travel reserves the right to cancel any booking where the documents have not been received and apply the appropriate cancellation fees.
As soon as we receive your reservation and deposit, we will start making your reservations. If any of the proposed accommodations are not available at the time of booking, we will select alternative of a similar standard. A price difference may incur, sometimes more, sometimes less and the balance of the payment will be adjusted accordingly. Availability of the hotels can be checked prior to booking upon request; however no space can be held or guaranteed.
Once all your reservations are booked, we will send you a confirmed travel itinerary with all services noted along with our local destination management contact details. Upon your arrival in destination, you will receive any further documentation such as vouchers, tickets and/or transfer details essential for your program.
If you wish to cancel your booking you must do so in writing. You will then be subject to the following cancellation charges:
|61-or more prior to departure||10% of total cost|
|60-46 days prior to departure||30% of total cost|
|45-16 days prior to departure||50% of total cost|
|15 days or less prior to departure||100% of total cost|
Change Bookings by you
A fee of Euro 100 per person will be charged for any revision or alteration made to a reservation after the booking is confirmed. A change of tour date or tour itinerary 16 days or more of departure will be treated as a cancellation, and normal cancellation fees will apply.
We endeavor to ensure that all your arrangements run smoothly. If any problem occurs, it is essential and most practical to try to resolve it directly with the local destination management. If you have an unresolved complaint you must inform our representative immediately who will do all possible to resolve the matter. If you remain dissatisfied any verbal notification must be confirmed in writing as soon as possible, and within 28 days after the completion of a tour giving full details of your complaint. If you are unhappy with your hotel room, please inform the hotel manager so the situation can be rectified on the spot.
