The following service conditions apply in general to both Southern Africa and South America

Currency Fluctuations

Due to currency fluctuations please note that all prices quoted are valid only at the time of printing and are subject to change without prior notice. Only full payment and issuance of relevant documentation at the time of payment will guarantee prices. We regret any inconvenience, but unfortunately LED TOURS & TRAVEL cannot in any way be held responsible.
Airline Ticket Restrictions

The airlines are clamping down on the names entered on airtickets. Airtickets must now have the full first name & last name inserted. These names are checked against the passport (or ID document) when checking in and when passing through customs. If there is any discrepency the passenger is not allowed to board and new tickets must be issued. Any name changes to airline tickets are now being charged. These charges are becoming expensive to us. We need to prevent name changes to airtickets. To avoid costly name changes to tickets and to avoid difficulties when clients wish to cancel, or claim they are using a different travel agent, we must now now insist on receiving a booking form completed and signed by the client before we will issue an airticket or book accommodation.
Booking Fee

A non-refundable amount of R200–00 per booking will be levied for any expenses incurred as a result of any international requests made by our office. The amount will have to be deposited into our account before Led Tours can process any bookings. The booking fee will only be credited if the client travels with Led Tours & Travel.

A deposit of 30% of tour cost, is payable at time of reservation and the balance is payable not less than 45 days prior to departure.
Confirmation will be in writing (only) upon receipt of the above deposit/tour cost. Led Tours, reserves the right to cancel any reservation for which the total price has not been paid by due date, in which event the deposit will be forfeited to the Company. Reservations will only be considered as firm bookings when the deposit has been received in our office and when the Company’s official booking form has been completed, in full and signed.
