ALTERATION OF BOOKING
The company will act as your agent and introduce you to the transport options, accommodation suppliers and the like who may provide you with the services and facilities referred to in the itinerary applicable to our tours.
All prices and itineraries quoted on our website are subject to alteration at the absolute discretion of the company. We will make every effort to follow the itinerary however on some occasions, it may be necessary for the itinerary to be amended due to operational requirements, weather conditions or any other factor that adversely affects the operation. The company reserves the right to make such amendments to the itinerary which will always be in the interests of your comfort and safety.
Also, we reserve the right to cancel any tour if the minimum number is not reached; after consultation with the clients we may transfer them to another departure with similar inclusions.
Baggage allowance per passenger is strictly controlled for your safety and legal reasons. Generally, baggage must be soft squishable bags, not rigid suitcases or framed trolley bags. Under no circumstances must the passenger carry in checked baggage or on board with any dangerous or prohibited items (as those terms are defined by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority). When the aircraft is fully occupied, each passenger may carry no more than 5 - 10 Kg baggage (briefcase / laptop / camera bag / normal sized handbag or similar).
In addition, all aircraft have operating weight limitations and this enables the flight crew to ensure the aircraft is loaded within these limitations and appropriate fuel loads are carried. If accurate passenger weights are not supplied prior to the flight, passengers or baggage may have to be left behind at the flight crew’s discretion.
Sometimes the aircraft may have to stop for fuel enroute. This would generally add about 30 minutes to the trip, however is a good opportunity to get out and stretch your legs.
If the aircraft is heavily loaded, more fuel stops may required than if a lighter load was carried.
In light aircraft, baggage space is usually very limited. Normally we recommend 1 soft bag up to 10 kgs per passenger unless otherwise specified. Soft bags are ideal as they will fit more easily into the small cargo holds in the aircraft.
Smoking is NOT permitted on the aircraft or anywhere near the aircraft or terminal buildings.
Dangerous goods (such as aerosols, paint, matches, gas stoves, firearms/ammunition etc ) are normally not permitted onboard aircraft and must be declared to your flight crew prior to loading/boarding to ensure the safety of your flight.
We highly recommend you to purchase travel insurance to cover you against such things as illness, accident, cancellation or lose and damage you your baggage etc. However it is essential for us to strictly enforce cancellation policies as the reservations we make on clients’ behalf are subject to onerous cancellation fees.
