Professional Planning Fees:
A professional planning fee of $450.00 applies to any custom itinerary that we prepare for you. This fee is paid in two installments: the first half at the time that we open your file and begin planning the itinerary; the balance is due when we deliver your documents.
Bookings undertaken within 8 weeks of the departure date will carry a supplemental charge, which is a percentage of the fee and to be determined by the complexity of the arrangements.If you decide to cancel your trip for any reason, an "unbooking" fee of $250.00 becomes due and payable.
If you just need a hotel, theater tickets, a car, a “meet and assist”, visa arrangements, or any other type of booking that does not require a detailed itinerary, fees begin at $100.00.
As a general rule, we do not issue airline tickets, but are happy to serve as your consultant in regard to all transportation logistics, including the air most appropriate to your itinerary. Any airline ticketing that we might undertake on your behalf, and as an exception to that rule, whether in conjunction with a tour or for your independent travel, carries a non-refundable fee of $50.00 per ticket.

Each traveler is responsible for satisfying
any medical requirements of the destinations you plan to visit. And, of course, you must obtain and carry with you the medications necessary for treatment of any chronic conditions.
