The booking and payment process
The booking process begins together with your email or calls to our offices. You will be assigned a private travel consultant, whose responsibilities include all communication with you, as well as planning and arranging all the details of your tour. Once all of the small print is prescribed, an invoice is going to be issued enabling you to form a deposit confirming your booking.
As soon as a deposit payment reaches our account, our travel consultant will inform you immediately that your adventure is confirmed. Depending on your tour type, we will set a deadline for when your deposit payment needs to be made.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing with our consultant, you must make full payment 14 days before the scheduled departure date. All of our travel packages must be fully pre-paid.
The timing of payments is imperative since these funds are going to be used to cover hotel reservations and other tour-related expenses, which are largely prepaid in Tanzania. If you fail to make timely payments without notifying or arranging with our Company, your booking may be canceled.
A deposit made may also be forfeited according to our cancellation policy.
The transaction-related charges associated with your payments must be covered by you. Wire transfers require you to cover all bank commissions for both sender and receiver. The Mastercard surcharge will range from 3.5 – 5% for all or any payments.
Should your deposit and final payment to our accounts not be complete for any reason, we shall charge you the missing amount upon your arrival in Tanzania.
You must be of legal age (18 years or older) to book a wildlife adventure with East Africa Travel Company. Bookings made by minors (those under the age of 18) can only be made by their parents, guardians, or legal guardians. The people who make the reservation holders accept these Terms and Conditions on their behalf, including the assumption of risk and limitations of liability.
At all times, minors must be accompanied and supervised by an adult Client. Any damage that results from the Minor’s conduct is the Client’s responsibility. Though extra attention is always paid to children traveling with us, the Company provides neither child care nor chaperoning services.
We must approve all bookings made on behalf of a minor. Permits, approvals, and other legal requirements regarding the travel of minors to Tanzania are the responsibility of the accompanying adult. We are not liable for any failure to meet any requirements that could prevent the minor from entering Tanzania.
Bookings made by third parties (tour operators, travel agencies, etc.)
As a tour leader, travel agent, etc., you make reservations on behalf of others. You are therefore considered to be the contact person for each participant of the tour. In this case, you are responsible for:
Providing the other tour participants with the Terms and Conditions. By agreeing to them, we will assume that you have obtained the consent of all tour participants to these Terms and Conditions and to the inclusions and exclusions of the tour package;
Paying on time and accurately;
Providing all the relevant information in a comprehensive and timely manner to the tour participants. If the dates or itinerary of the tour are to be changed, you will be responsible for notifying and obtaining consent from the participants;
Providing complete and accurate information about the tour participants in a timely manner. You are responsible for collecting such information and ensuring its accuracy. We will not be liable for any errors or omissions in such information.
The members of the group should communicate and book separately with us if they cannot accept responsibility for the above-mentioned.
Our prices will not be changed once your reservation has been confirmed, except in the unlikely case that the government of Tanzania increases park fees, taxes, or other tourism-related payments. In this case, you will receive a copy of the relevant public notice right away. The following two options are available to you if the price increases:
– To cancel and receive a refund according to our cancellation policies;
Accepting the price change and paying the difference;
- Changing the itinerary
- Changes made by the client
Your itinerary can be changed at no charge if it does not result in additional costs for us. Such costs must be covered by the Client.
In the event that you choose to discontinue our tour, either voluntarily or involuntarily, you or your company will be charged any additional costs resulting from the decision to terminate our tour. Typical costs might include but are not limited to, transportation and accommodation.
You will not receive a refund if you fail to use any sightseeing, meal, or tour services on your own account.
Changes by the Company
- While we do our best to ensure that your tour goes as planned, situations may arise (e.g. parts of the planned route becoming inaccessible due to poor weather conditions) requiring us to change your itinerary. Though rare, such cases are not to be ruled out and we shall endeavor to inform you of them promptly.
Changes because of third parties
- The Company shall not be liable for any delay, disruption, damage, or loss outside of our reasonable control. These may include – but are not limited to – third-party actions, flight delays, and any events of a force majeure nature.
