Article 4 – Special provisions relating to services provided
If the customer is in the obligation to cancel his journey, he will have to inform Latinexperience about it and his insurer, by registered letter with recorded delivery, from the emergence of the generative fact of this cancellation; it is the date of issue of the letter that will be retained as a date of cancellation for the invoicing of the expenses of cancellation. Expenses of cancellation are chargeable to the customer. Their amount varies according to the deadline when intervenes this cancellation and, as the case may be, specific conditions of certain services or dates of journey. These will be indicated on the sale contract.
For example, the following conditions commonly applied:
• 61 days before the beginning of the trip: a cancellation fee of 30% of the total tour price will be charged.
• Between 60 and 31 days before the beginning of the trip: a cancellation fee of 50% of the total tour price will be charged.
• Between 30 and 15 days before the beginning of the trip: a cancellation fee of 75% of the total tour price will be charged.

In case of cancellation, insurance fees are not refundable.
Note that specific conditions are provided by the customer for cancellation of some hotels, lodges and cruises on all our destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean, and according too to the special festive periods (Carnival, Christmas, New Year, Easter and other holidays local) or during special events (World Cup, Olympics, concerts, etc).
No insurance is included in the proposed prices.
All bookings are effective when a deposit has been received.
For example, the following conditions commonly applied:
The deposit is represented by a 30% deposit of the total amount per person. The customer will pay the balance of the invoice amount – 70% – at last 45 days before the day of departure.
Between the time the quote is written and when you give your consent, availability in accommodation can be challenged. Changes can therefore take place and then be done with your consent.
4.4 Any unused
Travel services curtailed or interrupted, or any service land, river, sea, or air not used for any reason whatsoever will not give rise to any refund by Latinexperience. The services voluntarily modified by the customer on-the-spot are submitted to the conditions of the local provider: the additional services or of replacement engendering an additional cost must be directly adjusted to the local travel agencies and cannot engage the responsibility of Latinexperience. They will give rise to no refund of the part not used of the services.
4.5 The international flights
Latinexperience will not provide single international flights but always joint with local services. Latinexperience and/or local agencies handle domestic flights and local agencies, also, where appropriate, international flights between two (or more) Latin America and Caribbean countries.
In addition, IATA announced a new form of distribution. The IATA member airlines adopted a resolution in October 2012 to create a new technology standard for the sale of tickets. Called NDC (New Distribution Capability), it “will allow airlines to offer more choice to customers and reach them easier on all channels of distribution” said the Iata statement. And to argue “with NDC, companies can recognize these customers and provide them with personalized offers as they already do for their clients directly connected to their own websites.” This indicates that customers are increasingly in direct contact with airlines and receive direct benefits, without intermediaries.
