Changes after confirmation of reservations will be accepted at no surcharge, unless any of our contracted vendors demand any charge for changes. Cancellations prior to arrival date are possible anytime. In general the cancellations policies of our different vendors will apply: 30 days prior to begin of services, no cancellation fees.

These policies are not valid for Carnival/New Year. Generally there is no refund for services on these periods in case of cancellations.
Domestic and international airport taxes are not included on our services. We will be very pleased to invoice you also for these taxes but will have to add 10% tax for this.
