*PACE SETTER TRAVEL & TOURS FEE SCHEDULE*
As a general rule of thumb, additional agency fees are not assessed for the vast majority of products where the supplier reimburses the agency with a fair industry standard level of commission.
In those instances where that is not the case, an appropriate service fee will be charged in which case you will be advised prior to commencement of the booking for your agreement of same.
*PACE SETTER TRAVEL & TOURS AGENCY FEE FOR CANCELLATIONS*
The relationship between an agency and the provider of travel products is fairly simple – if you travel we receive our commission and if you cancel – we generally do not.
It wasn’t until the mass cancellations globally resulting from Covid-19 shutdowns that travel professionals around the world understood fully the ramifications of this.
As such – the following cancellation fees are in place effective June 1, 2020 :
*Unless specified otherwise*
*Cancellation of a Package Holiday or Cruise* $200 per person listed on the reservation
*Cancellation of a Flight Reservation* $100 per person listed on the reservation
*Cancellation of ancillary/miscellaneous services*- $50 per reservation
*Cancellation of a Customized Reservation* - A fee of 20% of the full price of said reservation excluding any flight costs which are mentioned above under “cancellation of a flight reservation”.
A *consultation fee* calculated at a rate of $75.00 per hour may be assessed in those instance where travel advice is sought on items which are not/have not/will not be secured through our office.
*The above fee schedule is in addition to any cancellation fees that may be assessed by the airline/cruise line/tour operator/attractions provider and as such we STRONGLY recommend securing cancellation insurance protection as a hedge against the unexpected*
GST is applicable and will be added to the above fees.
*SUPPLIER TERMS AND CONDITIONS*
Each airline, cruise line, tour operator and attractions provider has their own terms and conditions.
And as we’ve learned throughout the challenges offered up by Covid-19, these change on a regular basis.
As such – a link will be provided with your booking that ties directly into the supplier(s) of the service(s) which we would ask that you review.
