Payment options

CONFIRMATION

We require a down payment of 35% of the total amount invoiced to confirm your trip and/or your spaces on the Galapagos cruise. The remaining balance (65%) is due 60 days before start date of your trip. If the trip takes place within 60 days, full payment is required to confirm your program.

PAYMENT WITH CREDIT CARD

You can pay for your tour with any VISA or MasterCard credit card. If you pay with credit card an extra 6% on the total amount of your tour will be charged. Paying with credit card is easy, fast and recommendable if the tour takes place in the near future and immediate confirmation is needed.

Galapagos cruises

  • For cancellations that are made more than 120 days before the start day of your Galapagos cruise, 10% of the total invoice will be retained for administration fees.
  • For cancelations between 60-120 days before the start day of your Galapagos cruise, a cancelation fee of 35% of the total amount will be charged, i.e. the required initial deposit of 35% will not be refunded. In case you deposited more than 35% of the total amount, we will refund the remaining amount.
  • For cancelations less than 60 days prior to the start date of your Galapagos cruise, the full amount of the cruise will be charged without refund.

We highly recommend looking at options for trip cancellation insurance. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim your cancellation charges through your insurer.

LIABILITY

We are not liable for the acts, errors, omissions, representations, warranties, breaches or negligence of any suppliers or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting therefrom. We have no liability and will make no refund in the event of any delay, cancellation, overbooking, strike, theft, force majeure, failure of any means conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled, civil disturbances, terrorism or other causes beyond our control, and we have no responsibility for any additional expense, omissions, delays, re-routing or acts of any government or authority.

Reasonable changes in the itinerary may be made where deemed advisable for the comfort and well-being of the passengers and according to National Park regulations. For Galapagos cruises, the right is normally reserved to substitute boats for others going out on the same date with equivalent or higher class, alter the itinerary, and reverse the order of the places to be visited. On advancement of a deposit to an agent, the depositor therefore agrees to be bound by the above terms and conditions.
