Please note that your itinerary is often made up of many components that include accommodations (hotel/lodges), transfers, sightseeing with tour guides, various ground operators as well as international and internal flights, and/or cruises. It is therefore necessary to point out that we as a business can only pass on credits and rebooking / cancellation policies that we can negotiate with all of these operators, which do vary.
