Terms and Conditions



Reservations can be made by contacting Disa Tours, hereafter referred to as the "Company".
Disa Tours will provide the user with a full confirmation of availabilities before the user makes any payment to us.
Once availabilities are confirmed to the user, services are booked and confirmed only on receipt of a 20% advance payment of the basic rate (there are however, a few exceptions where suppliers and operators require a deposit of up to 50%). This advance payment is due within fourteen (14) days of making the reservation. There shall be no binding contract until the advance payment has been received by the Company. Failure to remit your advance payment on time will result in an automatic change of status of any confirmed space to a provisional basis and the possible inability to reinstate your reservation.
The Company cannot be liable for any penalties or losses incurred as a result of voluntary or involuntary changes to transportation schedules.
The balance is due no later than sixty (30) days prior to commencement of the program. If the balance has not been received by that date, the Company shall be entitled in its discretion to treat your reservation as cancelled, and consequently to forfeit such part of the advance payment as determined solely by the Company.
Any reservation made within sixty (30) days of commencement of a tour may be accepted provided space is available, payment in full is received.
The Company will not provide vouchers until full payment has been received.
The Company will not accept responsibility for money transfer and/or overnight delivery charges.
The above 1 - 1.7 applies unless by mutual agreement between Client & the Company.



Any cancellation of a booking must be in writing and shall only be effective upon its acknowledged receipt by the Company. If written notification is received prior to 4 weeks before departure, your deposit is refunded. If your cancellation is made within 4 weeks of departure, cancellation charges will be levied. The scale of charges, expressed as a percentage of the tour price, is as follows: More that 8 weeks notice - deposit refunded (20% of tour fare). Less that 4 weeks notice - deposit 20% plus 30% Less than 2 weeks notice - 60%. Less than 1 weeks notice - 100%.
If you are a "no show," the Company shall be entitled to treat your reservation as cancelled without having given the Company any notice, and the provisions of Paragraph 2.1 shall apply. (Please note that if the reason for cancellation falls within the terms of any holiday insurance policy held by you, such charges will be subject to the terms of your insurance).
Any request to amend or change a booking once it has been confirmed may be accommodated subject to space availability.
No refunds are given
(1) For lost travel time or substitution of facilities,
(2) for itineraries amended after departure,
(3) for circumstances arising beyond the Company's control, necessitating alternative arrangements being made to ensure the safety and/or further participation and enjoyment of your program,
(4) if you do not appear for any accommodation, service, sightseeing or trip segment without notifying the Company, or
(5) if you leave your program after it has begun, or miss any scheduled sightseeing, activities, meals or accommodations.
