Terms & Conditions

Pricing – General 


  • Though the price quoted is in US dollars, all suppliers are paid in local currency. Pricing is based on current exchange rates between the local currency and the dollar. Prices quoted are subject to change up until the time of arrival in the destination pending rate of exchange at that time. Price will be adjusted accordingly – and either client or Puzzle Travels, as the case may be, will be responsible for any differential in cost
  • The above price or price mentioned via email is based on hotel reservations made in your name
  • The above price or price mentioned via email is valid for 7 days only – after which we will need to re quote the hotel rooms and offer an updated price. Price can only be finalized once the tour is booked by sending a down payment and relevant forms. 

Terms of Payment for Land Service

  • Reservations can only be confirmed once the down payment of 30% of the trip cost has been paid as well as passport copies have been received by our office
  • Payment accepted by wire transfer or credit card; details provided upon booking.
  • All above prices or prices mentioned by email and all payments must be made in US dollars

Booking & Cancellation policies

  • Upon confirmation of booking a non-refundable down payment of 30% of the total cost is to be made.
  • Full payment is to be made 60 days prior to arrival
  • Cancellation prior to 75 days, the cancellation fee is 30% of trip cost 
  • Cancellation between 75-61 days prior to arrival, cancellation fee is 40% of trip cost
  • Cancellation between 61-45 days prior to arrival, cancellation fee is 50% of trip cost
  • Cancellation between 44-31 days prior to arrival, cancellation fee is 60% of trip cost
  • Cancellation between 30-15 days prior to arrival, cancellation fee is 70% of trip cost
  • 14 days or less, 100% cancellation fee
  • In the case of postponement, we will do our best to get some of the amounts paid to be used as credit for future trips up to 12 months, but cannot be refunded unless agreed otherwise

Trip insurance is a requirement for booking

Please note, however, that higher cancellation charges may apply to some arrangements. For example, some suppliers require the full cost of services to be paid when a booking is made and this may not be refundable if you cancel. At peak periods, such as Passover, Hanukkah, Christmas, and other holidays, some accommodation providers require a non-refundable deposit of more than 30% of the total cost to be paid to secure a booking. If this applies to your arrangements, we will let you know at the time of booking and we will also advise you of the cancellation charges which apply. It is a requirement that you take out full travel insurance for you and all members of your party, which will in most cases include cover, under certain circumstances, against loss of deposit or cancellation fees.
