Your responsibilities:

Open tickets: You must book your travel dates in advance with the individual Service Provider as per details provided on your voucher.

Tickets with booked dates: It is your responsibility to ensure you redeem your tickets on the dates booked. If you wish to change these dates you must organize it with the Service Provider directly, with adequate notice.

CANCELLATIONS and REFUNDS

Credit card fees and fees paid to us for accommodation and luggage storage are not transferable or refundable as we make commitments to various Service providers on your behalf. If you cancel your travel, you must pay us a fee of 80% of the value of the travel that was booked on your behalf. (“Cancellation Fee”). In addition, if a Service Provider charges us for the cancelled travel you must also pay us the amount that we are charged on your behalf by the Service Provider. It is therefore possible your cancellation fees could be up to 100% of the cost of the booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced (for example cancellations made within 24 hrs of travel or certain flight bookings).

The Cancellation Fee will apply in all cases where a tour is able to run. For example, if you are unable to reach a tour due to an “act of God” (for example a road is cut off due to flooding) the normal Cancellation Fee will apply if the tour still runs in your absence or would have run but for your absence. If a tour or other travel service is cancelled by the Service Provider, we will refund you the amount paid for the tour or other travel service less a 10% administration fee (“Admin Fee”).

This full refund minus admin fee is subject to a fully refundable amount being given to Sapphire  Elite Escapes from the Service Provider who is cancelling. Remember that all suppliers have different cancellation terms, and each  on a case by case basis. Please note that in the case of Natural Disasters (eg flood, fire, cyclone, etc) many service providers do not offer any refund, hence we cannot provide a refund to you. We strongly recommend Travel Insurance to cover this situation.

Refunds resulting from specific situations, such as natural disasters may take up to 30 days processing time.
