We do not charge anything for helping you change or rearrange your booking for all types of tours, packages and car rentals. But costs can change accordingly with your new details, depending on hotel rates, car rentals etc. In that case we will either notify you about the increased costs or refund you the difference.
Please note that changing the number of people in a booking to a smaller number is considered cancellation for the change in number of pax.
For day tours and car rentals, please let us know your changes at least 24 hours in advance for the change to take effect. For multi-day tours and packages, please allow 7 days in advance. Please also note that we might not be able to fulfill your changed requirements due to lack of availability. But we will always do our best.
