6. Changes and Cancellation by Costa Rica For Less

While Costa Rica for Less will use its best efforts to operate all tours as advertised, by entering into this contract the Client accepts that it may prove necessary or advisable to vary or modify a tour itinerary or its contents due to prevailing local conditions. Costa Rica for Less reserves the right at any time to cancel or change any of the facilities, services or prices (including flights, accommodation or other arrangements) and to substitute alternative arrangements of comparable monetary value without compensation and accepts no liability for loss of enjoyment as a result of these changes.

If a major change is known to us, the Client will be told at the time of the booking.

If a major change becomes necessary after booking a tour, Costa Rica for Less will inform the Client as soon as reasonably possible.

When a major change is made the Client will have the choice to accept the change of arrangements, to purchase any other available tour or to cancel the tour and obtain a full refund. This is providing that the major change is not because of force majeure.

Force majeure is war, threat of war, riots, civil strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activities, natural or nuclear disaster, fire or adverse weather conditions, technical or maintenance problems with transport, changes imposed by cancellation or rescheduling of flights by an airline, the alteration of airline or aircraft type, or other similar events beyond the control of Costa Rica for Less.

Costa Rica for Less is not liable for any charges in the event of a change -beyond their control- to the departure time or date of a tour, flight or other form of transport.

Persons over 60 years of age will be advised to obtain medical evidence of fitness to travel on the chosen itinerary. No unaccompanied minors (those under 18 years of age) can be accepted on tours operated by Costa Rica for Less, however older teenagers may be considered provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who accepts full responsibility for the minor. Costa Rica for Less reserves the absolute right to decline a booking at their discretion. Clients agree to accept the authority and decisions of Costa Rica for Less' employees, tour leaders and agents, while on the tour with Costa Rica for Less.

In case of ill health Costa Rica for Less may make such arrangements as it sees fit and recover the costs thereof from the Client.

10. Local laws

All participants in tours operated by Costa Rica for Less are expected to obey the laws and regulations of the countries visited and any failure to do so will relieve Costa Rica for Less of all obligations that they may otherwise have under these booking conditions.

[ Return to Top ]


11. Illness or disability

Anyone suffering from illness or disability or undergoing treatment for any physical or medical condition must declare the true nature of such condition at the time of booking and make arrangements for the provision of any medication or other treatment which may be required during the tour. Failure to make such disclosure will constitute a breach of these booking conditions and will result in such persons being excluded from the tour in which case all monies paid will be forfeit.

If the chosen tour includes a cruise or excursion or transfer by boat of any sort, the Client must make it known at the time of booking if he/she is unable to swim. This will not prevent the Client from participating in the tour, but will enable Costa Rica for Less to take additional precautions for the Client’s safety at such times as may be appropriate.

[ Return to Top ]


12. If the Client has a Complaint

If the Client has a complaint about any of the tour arrangements he/she must bring it to the attention of the tour leader or other representative of Costa Rica for Less at the time so that they may use their best endeavors to rectify the situation. It is only if Costa Rica for Less is made aware of any problems that there will be the opportunity to put things right. Complaining to Costa Rica for Less as a problem arises during your trip will allow us to remedy the situation or facilitate compensation. Should the problem remain unsolved, a complaint must be made in writing to Costa Rica for Less within 28 days of the completion of the holiday.

[ Return to Top ]


13. Flight Bookings

Costa Rica for Less will use its best efforts to ensure that all flight prices are correct at the time that they are quoted. Airlines reserve the right to amend or withdraw fares without prior notice. Once a deposit is paid on an airfare, it guarantees that a booking is being held for you, but it DOES NOT GUARANTEE the fare. The fare can only be guaranteed when the flight booking has been paid for in full and a ticket has been issued. Flight bookings cannot be transferred.

The flight times given by Costa Rica for Less are for general guidance only and are subject to change. Up-to-date flight times will be shown on the tickets. The Client must check the tickets very carefully immediately upon receipt of the latest timings. Costa Rica for Less will endeavor to inform the Client as soon as possible in the event of any flight alteration. Details of airlines are also subject to change. Such alterations do not constitute a significant change to the trip arrangements and will therefore not be entitled to cancellation without paying the normal charges as a result.

Costa Rica for Less cannot be held responsible for any delay to your flight whether this delay is caused by adverse weather conditions, the action of air traffic controllers, airport authorities or (local) governments, the rescheduling of flight times by the airline, mechanical breakdown, strike, industrial action or any other reason.

14. Our responsibility

Costa Rica for Less cannot guarantee the accuracy of any hotel, resort or other leaflet which is not published by them but may be supplied as an additional service to the Client.

Costa Rica for Less accepts responsibility for ensuring that the vacation which the Client books with them is supplied as described in the final version of the travel program the Client will receive upon arrival and the services reach a reasonable standard.

Costa Rica for Less acts only in the capacity of an agent upon the legal conditions that, while exercising every possible precaution, it is not responsible for injury, illness, damage, loss, additional expenses, accidental delay, or other irregularities which may be caused either through willful or negligent acts or omissions made by the companies or individuals providing or engaged in transportation, accommodation or other services related to the accomplishment of the tour, or through natural disasters, social upheavals or other causes.
