BOOKING AND PAYMENT PROCESS
Our tours take many hours of planning and work to create the unique experience we aim to give our travelers. This planning takes place long before your trip departure date. Therefore, our trips do include non-refundable deposits as detailed in your trip itinerary. In addition, our suppliers require payments long in advance of your departure date and so all bookings are subject to their terms and conditions.
Our bookings do not include airfare. You must not make any air reservation until you receive confirmation of your booking. Your contract for airfare is with the carrier and subject to its terms and we will not be liable for any change fees or cancellation fees or other additional cost you incur with the air carrier.
Final payment for your trip reservation will be due no later than 61 days before your scheduled departure date. Failure to receive the final payment will result on your trip being cancelled. In such a case this would be considered a cancellation by you and the cancellation terms and fees as described below would be in effect. We will not be held responsible for lost reservations.
While we do not assist with air reservations, we bring to your attention the importance of accuracy. Names provided to secure reservations must match travelers’ passport. Middle names are not required to appear on airline tickets. Date of birth and complete passport details are required. Any minor name corrections advised after airline tickets have been issued will incur fees. Not all name corrections will be permitted by airlines and may require the purchase of a new ticket. Travelers voluntarily assume full and sole responsibility for any and all risks and/or costs involved with failure to report any errors and/or omissions to documentation.
CREDIT CARD BOOKINGS
Chargebacks resulting from non-cancellable reservations, whether or not the reservation is used.
Chargebacks resulting from charges authorized by family, friends, associates or other third parties with direct access to your credit card. This does not include credit card fraud.
Chargebacks arising from inconsistency or inaccuracy with regard to the supplier’s product description.
Chargebacks resulting from force majeure or other circumstances that are beyond the control of Today Voyages or the Supplier.
Chargebacks resulting because you do not agree with the cancellation policy.
For trips that include a hotel stay, our prices depend on the room type. Unless otherwise indicated, prices are per person and are based on a double room. Single rooms are available with a supplement. Triple and Quad rooms are available for certain trips only with an applicable discount. Triple and Quad rooms consist of 2 double beds. The price of your itinerary will be based on known costs at the date of issue of the itinerary. All prices we advertise are accurate at the date published, but we reserve the right to change any of those prices from time to time. At the time of booking confirmation, we will provide you with an invoice reflecting the current price. We reserve the right to add a supplement to your travel prices should our costs of supplying your travel increase, until we receive your final payment. Any increase to your travel price will be as the result of changes in our costs of supplying your travel resulting from changes by our suppliers, dues, or taxes payable locally, currency 4 fluctuations and government action. If our costs to supply your travel increases, we reserve the right to increase the price of your travel and will forward a new Invoice reflecting any changes made. After final payment, your price is locked in. We also reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in advertised prices at any time before your travel is confirmed. We will advise you of any errors of which we are aware and of the then applicable price at the time of booking.

This includes but is not limited to hotel accommodations, meals, show tickets, admission tickets, transportation, etc. All suppliers have their own cancellation policies, which apply to your booking. Should a cancellation become necessary, please inform Today Voyages immediately in writing and request a written confirmation of your cancellation. Upon, receipt, Today Voyages will communicate with the suppliers regarding any applicable refunds subject to suppliers’ terms and conditions. If you are entitled to a refund, please note that the supplier is responsible for this refund, not Today Voyages. Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of refund. We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for supplier bankruptcy or insolvency.
Exceptions to suppliers’ cancellation policy cannot be made for any reason, including but not limited to weather, terrorism, civil unrest, epidemics, or the thread of personal, family or medical emergencies or force majeure. There is no refund for arriving late or leaving a trip early.
If the reason for cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel protection plan you may be able to reclaim these charges, for this reason we strongly encourage the purchase of a travel protection plan including additional cancel for any reason coverage.
Airline tickets are governed by the air carriers’ terms, and we are not responsible for any air carrier’s decision regarding refund.

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide airport transfer services if the flight arrives two or more hours later than its scheduled arrival time.

However, we cannot guarantee the execution of these services and cannot be held financially responsible if they are not provided.
