On the tours to Morocco we always intend using the ferry advertised to the destination shown. We hold the right, either for reasons beyond our control or for reasons beneficial to the tour, to change the ferry and or the destination but this will not constitute material change to the programme.

COMPLAINTS AND DISPUTES
If you have a complaint, we must receive notification in writing no later than 28 days after the end of the tour.
CANCELLATION BY SOLCHASERS
Sometimes there has to be a minimum number of participants on a tour to make it viable, and if this is not reached we reserve the right to cancel the tour. In this case, there would be a full refund of all payments made, and notification of cancellation would be at least six weeks before departure date. If cancellation is necessitated through force majeur – e.g. civil strife, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster – we shall refund the portion of payment made to us by clients which has not been committed irrecoverably by us to the tour. However we can be under no other liability to you in such cases.
Our pricing is based on the exchange rates ruling of July 31, 2008 provided by Travelex Global. Surcharges may be imposed if cost increase as a result of government action, currency fluctuation, or increases in overflying charges, airport charges or scheduled air fares. In any event we will absorb an amount equivalent to 2% of the tour fee. If the amount of the surcharge exceeds 10% you will be entitled to cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid. This right to cancel must be exercised within 14 days of receiving written notification of the surcharge.
