The non-issuing of an invoice or non-payment of deposit will not exempt passengers from these cancellation and administration fees.

Much care has gone into the composition of itineraries and costings for this brochure, however circumstances such as devaluation or fuel surcharges may necessitate change in cost and itineraries. Should this occur you will be notified as soon as possible. Not withstanding that deposits or complete payments may have been made, any increases up until the date of departure of arrangements resulting from the above are to be paid by the purchaser/passenger. If such increases are unacceptable, the passenger may cancel his/her booking, though, in so doing, he/she is still liable to pay any cancellation charges imposed in the way of cancellation, administration, communication charges, etc. While every effort has been made to ensure prices are accurate, Bench International cannot be held responsible for any changes. Rates are subject to change.
