Tips on selecting tour packages
* Always analyse the contents of the itineraries to ensure that they best fit your interest and budget
*Compare offerings from different travel agents but do not base your comparison on price alone. Check details such as the airline you will be travelling on, type of accommodation, number of meals provided, places you will be visiting and if admission fees to attractions are included.
*Do note that fuel surcharges, taxes and tipping may not be included in the package price.
* Always check the tour booking terms and conditions, for example, cancellation and refund policies
* Ensure that all services that your travel agent has agreed to provide are listed in the tour booking form
* Paying deposits does not guarantee a confirmed booking. Travel agents need to make travel arragnements with airlines, hotels and land operators first and balance payment is requested only when all arrangements are confirmed. This usually happens two weeks before departure.
