The content of the arrangement consists of, or rather the price of the package includes, what is stated in the travel program.
Special services are services that are not included in the price of the package and therefore the traveler pays especially for them. These services should be requested at the point of booking and are an add-on cost to the price of the package. Optional and special services requested by the Client during the travel period are payable to the tour escort or travel agent representative in the currency of the country where the service is provided.
The prices of the packages are published in kuna and calculated according to the prices of services in the reference currency at the sales exchange rate of the tour organizer’s bank on a specific day. The organizer reserves the right to change the published prices in case of changes in accommodation prices, food, transport, and other services, or in case of changes in the value of the currency that are the basis for the calculation of the price of the arrangement. To increase the price of the arrangement up to 10%, no customer consent is required (the increase is calculated in all parts of the payment). In case of an increase of more than 10%, the Client is entitled to terminate the contract without obligation to compensate the damage.
