OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
Reservation Of Your Holiday:
When we receive your request for booking for a particular holiday, either direct or through your travel agent, we allocate the holiday to you, subject to availability, and issue a confirmation/invoice.
Eastern Eurotours Price Guarantee:
All prices in this brochure are based in A$ and were calculated in November 2011. We guarantee that whatever happens to the value of the A$ in 2012 we will endeavour to maintain the level of your holiday price to the best of our ability. Should costs related to suppliers' charges change, it may be necessary for us to make a surcharge on the price of your holiday. If this means paying more than 10% on the initial tour price, you will be entitled to cancel your holiday within 7 days of notification, with a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges levied by us before the notification of change. However, we will absorb an amount equivalent to 2% of your holiday price before making an increase. Rail and Ferry Services will incur a 100% cancellation fee once booking is confirmed as per supplier's instructions.
If We Change Your Booking:
Should circumstances beyond our control dictate, we reserve the right to make amendments to your holiday and will inform you about these as soon as they arise. If the minimum number of persons required for each tour is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the tour. Should it be necessary to cancel your booking, we will offer an alternative from our brochure. If this is not available or suitable to you, we will refund all monies paid by you. We cannot, however, accept responsibility for changes or cancellations due to "force majeure" – threat of war, political unrest, fire, adverse weather conditions, natural disasters or any other such circumstance beyond our control. In such instances we will refund all monies, less reasonable expenses incurred by our organisations.
YOUR COMMITMENT TO US
The deposit of AUD$200 per person for FIT bookings and 30% per person for Escorted Tours and Cruising must be held by your travel agent before your travel agent will make a booking. The deposit will only be refunded if the requested holiday reservation is unavailable. Payment by you of the deposit implies acceptance of the terms and conditions of this agreement. Your travel agent will hold the deposit until the booking is confirmed by Eastern Eurotours & Mediterranean Holidays at which time the deposit will be passed over to Eastern Eurotours & Mediterranean Holidays within seven (7) days. Money held by your travel agent from time of confirmation is not held on behalf of Eastern Eurotours & Mediterranean Holidays. All money received by Eastern Eurotours & Mediterranean Holidays will be deposited as required by law and dispersed to our suppliers according to their conditions of payment. The balance of the purchase price is payable sixty - (60) days prior to your holiday departure or before you depart Australia.

All alterations that you wish to make to the confirmed booking arrangements will be sent to us in writing and signed by the person who made the initial booking. We will make every effort to satisfy your request. A $30 amendment charge will be charged to cover some of our expenses after documentation has been issued.
Any cancellations will be in writing and signed by the person who made the initial reservation. In order for us to cover our expenses and losses, we will apply the following scale of cancellation fees:
More than 60 days: Deposit only

28 – 15 days: 60% of package price
14 – 4 days: 80% of package price

Service provider fees may also apply to the above cancellation percentages. Your travel insurance policy may cover the refunding of these charges if the reason for your cancellation falls within the terms of the insurance policy.
