A non-refundable deposit will be required to guarantee your booking. This deposit will vary depending on the type of booking and the lead time but will normally be 25-50% of the package cost. The exact amount will be advised at time of booking. If the booking is less than sixty (60) days before departure date, full booking price will be required. The deposit is due within seven (7) days of confirming the booking.
Any such deposit is strictly non-refundable. The deposit constitutes part of the booking conditions and Nine Yards Travel reserves the right, without prejudice to any other rights that it may have, to cancel any booking in the event of the deposit or any part thereof not being received by the due date specified therefore.
Full payment will be required for flight bookings, in order to secure the ticket taxes and exchange rates that fluctuate on a daily basis.
The quoted booking price is based on tour prices, fares, hotel prices, land costs and other relevant costs prevailing at the date of the quotation provided by Nine Yards Travel. You agree that in the event of there being any increase in any such costs prior to receipt by Nine Yards Travel of the final payment, such increase shall be for your account (unless otherwise agreed to by Nine Yards Travel or the supplier concerned) and shall be payable, without deduction or set-off, simultaneously with the final payment.
Any increase in the booking price occasioned by the fluctuation in rates of exchange between the date of quotation and the date of final payment below shall similarly be for your account.
Final payment for any booking must be irrevocably credited to the account of Nine Yards Travel at least sixty (60) days prior to the date of departure, unless specific arrangements have been made with, and confirmed in writing by Nine Yards Travel.
Any bookings made less than sixty (60) days prior to the departure date must be accompanied by the full quoted and confirmed payment, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Nine Yards Travel.
Final invoicing is based upon the quoted and confirmed price, less any deposit paid, plus any additional charges (including but not limited to any disbursements incurred by Nine Yards Travel for and on your behalf) that may have accrued in terms of this agreement. Payment of any such invoice and/or statement must be made in full, without deduction or set-off, on the due date therefore, notwithstanding cancellation of all or any part of the services booked by Nine Yards Travel.
Failure to make final payment on the confirmed due date will lead to cancellation of booked services and the loss of all monies paid to date.
Aside from passport, visa and other peripheral service fees (additional fees), Nine Yards Travel reserves the right to claim late booking charges, communications, consultation, administration and amendment fees where applicable.
Nine Yards Travel reserves all rights of recourse to recover overdue amounts.
