Reservation & Cancellation
Reservation: Please contact your travel agent or contact us via email or phone. All documents / tickets will be issued under passport names in order to meet TSA, airline, & local government compliance. Airlines do not allow travelers to change names on tickets after purchase. Incorrect names will constitute a cancellation. Rebooking will be subject to airline/hotel imposed cancellation penalties.
Payment: Deadlines for final payments are dependent on airline policies. Once you receive a formal quotation, your price is guaranteed. Reservations will be automatically cancelled if payment is not received within the reservation deadline shown on your quotation. If you are booking more than 60 days in advance, please check with your booking agent for deposit options.
Cancellation: When you cancel your reservation, the following fee will be assessed per person accordingly.
|Days prior to departure||Land Only Penalties||Air & Land Penalty Per Adult/Child|
|45 days or more||$300||$500|
|15 - 44 days||50%||50%|
|Within 14 days||100%||100%|
Written notice of cancellation and travel documents must be received by Super Value Tours Inc. 14 days prior to departure for an eligible refund. Super Value Tours will not be responsible for any non-refundable situations resulting from delayed arrival of your travel documents.
Certain discounted airfares may be completely non-refundable. In such cases, air ticket cancellation will result in 100% forfeiture of ticket value and may supersede our penalty amounts shown above (up to $2000 for some tickets). This is not common and you will be notified in advance of these special terms if applicable.
Before any credit card payment refund can be issued, all penalty fees must first be paid via check.
Special Circumstances: If the passenger or the passenger’s immediate family (parents, siblings) passes away prior to tour departure, Super Value Tours will inquire a penalty waiver from the airline with the provided death or doctor’s certificate. If the particular airline authorizes such a waiver for the ticket penalty, Super Value Tours will only collect the hotel penalty fee and a $50 processing fee per passenger. If the airline denies such a waiver, in a case by case situation, Super Value Tours may convert the customer’s payment of the land portion into a nonrefundable credit that will remain redeemable for up to one year. Additional fees may apply depending on future tour departures.
Travel Protection: Super Value Tours cares for the safety and security of our guests, so we provide and pay for a Post Departure plan that provides coverage for Trip Interruption Trip Delay, Baggage loss or theft, Medical Expense and Evacuation and more.
