Postponement, Cancellation & Payment Policies

Travel Gurus will have the option to select a general Cancellation and Postponement Policy in the Company Profile, which will apply as a general rule for all trips. During the creation and/or editing of each trip, the Travel Guru will be able to accept the above-mentioned policy or define a different policy for that specific trip based on specific requirements.

 

Travel Gurus will be able to define Cancellation and Postponement Policy by selecting between Flexible, Standard, and Strict policies, in order to adapt to each personal requirements, as per below:
