The deposit is refundable within 7 days prior the departure of the tour. With less than 7 days notice of cancellation the deposit is not refundable. Canceling less than 48 hours before the tour (for any reason) or no show results in 100% of the tour price being charged.
IBT is not responsible for unpredictable and inclement weather conditions. Therefore, on booking a trip with us, clients must honor their commitment either by participating in alternative tours such as wine tasting, visiting areas of interest via vehicle, or whenever possible rescheduling the trip depending on our and the clients' availability.
Travel agents, villa rental agents and all travel related businesses are required to pay a deposit of 30% of the total tour cost, payable by credit card (Visa or MasterCard).
