This arrangement is issued on the sole responsibility of the Tour Operator i.e. VisionWild Photo Tours. It is not issued on behalf of and does not commit the airline(s) mentioned or any airline whose services are used in the course of the tour.
c) Currency exchange rates are not guaranteed and other elements may also be surcharged. The price of your holiday is subject to surcharges on the following items - governmental action, currency, taxes or fees at airports, aircraft fuel, overflying charges, airport charges and increase in scheduled air fares. However, we will absorb an amount equivalent to 2% of the holiday price excluding any amendment charges. Only amounts in excess of the 2% will be surcharged. If this means paying more than 10% on the holiday price, you will be entitled to cancel your holiday with a full refund of all monies paid. Should you decided to cancel because of this, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on the amended invoice.

These charges are payable whether or not we succeed in confirming your requested amendment. If your request is received 42 days or less before departure, it may be treated as cancellation and normal cancellation charges as detailed in paragraph b) below may apply.

We regret the need for these charges but these are to compensate us for the risk that we may not be able to re-sell the holiday. All clients are required to have insurance cover. Reimbursement for cancellation charges can be made if your claim falls within the terms of the insurance policy.
c) Amendments by the Company
Great care is taken to ensure that the descriptions and prices given are accurate at the time of publication. However, as you will appreciate, your holiday arrangements are planned months in advance and on rare occasions it may be necessary to make modifications to them and we reserve the right to make such changes at any time. In the majority of cases such changes will be minor but if they are of a more substantial nature - we will notify you in writing immediately. The Company will notify you as soon as practicably possible and offer you two choices. You may accept the modification, you may cancel and receive a full refund following majeure or low bookings.
Force Majeur means unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond the Company's control, the consequence of which neither the Company nor its suppliers could avoid, including, but not limited to, war, threat of war, riots, civil strife, terrorist activity (actual or threatened), industrial dispute, technical problems with transport, machinery or equipment, power failure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, airport closures, adverse weather conditions, including flood, drought or low river levels. "Low Bookings" means that an insufficient number of people have booked the arrangements to make their operation financially viable in the advertised form.
Cancellation by the Company as a result of low bookings will not be made after the balance date (i.e. 10 weeks prior to departure).
If there is a minor modification before departure (i.e. any change not included in the definition of significant modification set out above), we will try to notify you, although we are not obliged to do so, nor are we obliged to pay any compensation. If the Company becomes unable to provide a significant portion of your holiday after it has commenced, suitable alternative arrangements will be made for you at no extra charge.
d) Cancellation by the Company
If you fail to pay the balance of the holiday price at least 10 weeks prior to departure.
