Trip Changes

Please note that we will attempt to adhere to the itinerary as much as possible. However, certain conditions (political, climatic, environmental and cultural) may necessitate changes in the itinerary. We reserve the right to alter any itinerary at any time, if necessary. We will attempt to notify participants of changes as far in advance as possible. Costs incurred by such changes will be the responsibility of the participants. Since we began the company in 1998 we haven’t had to make a significant trip change.

Trip Price Increases

Thomson Family Adventures reserves the right to increase the tour price in the event of cost increases due to changes in airfares, currency fluctuations, or fuel charges up to the time of final payment, except for increased government taxes, such as increased park fees, which can be passed on at any time.
