Legend Tours will NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE if the Client fails to take adequate insurance cover.

All claims will be done directly with the Insurer and Legend Tours can and will not be responsible for any claims. Please note that various Medical Aid companies and banks offer limited levels of travel insurance, which Legend Tours does not consider sufficient cover for international travel. Kindly check with the respective companies in order to obtain specific details of the cover as his is your responsibility.

Flight and Other Travel Timings
Flight timings are provided by airlines and are subject to Air Traffic Control restrictions. All means of transportation are subject to weather conditions, the need for constant maintenance, and the ability of passengers to check-in on time. There is no guarantee that lights, ferries, ships, trains, or coaches will depart at the times stated in any itinerary or tickets which you receive. All timings are estimates only, and we do not accept any liability for any delay, however arising, or for any schedule alterations.

Flight Reconfirmation
It is your responsibility to ensure that you reconfirm the departure date and times of all your flights at least 72 hours prior to departure. This is particularly important in respect of subsequent journeys once leaving South Africa and Legend Tours hereby specifically excludes any liability for any delay and/or loss as a result of your failure to reconfirm any flight.

Documents (vouchers, itineraries, etc.) are only prepared on receipt of full payment of your travel arrangements, and the signed and completed Terms & Conditions and whatever other necessary documents are required for your travel, and will be ready at least 2 weeks prior to departure save for late bookings and visas. These are forwarded to the traveler via email. Should you require hard copies of your documents and air tickets to be forwarded to either yourself or the departure airport this may be arranged by you with us.
However, the courier costs in respect thereof will be for your own account.

It is important that you check all details of your travel documents (including your itinerary) on receipt thereof and prior to departure. If there are any inaccuracies on any of your travel documents, or should you have any further queries, you should contact your travel consultant immediately. Legend Tours will not be liable for any delay and/or loss occasioned as a result of any inaccuracies on any travel documents once you are in receipt thereof and have departed on your travel.

Unscheduled Delays or Extensions
In the unlikely event of there being an unscheduled delay or extension to your travel arrangements caused by flight delays, bad weather, strikes, isolation or quarantine requirements or any other cause which is beyond the control of Legend Tours, it is understood that the expenses relating to these unscheduled delays or extensions, (hotel accommodation, airline costs, car hire, transfers, etc.), will be for your own account.

Legend Tours accepts no liability for changes, omissions, or delays before or during the course of your travel arrangements occasioned by technical difficulties, weather conditions, strikes, pandemics or communication breakdowns or the like.

Our Right to Change Your Travel Arrangements.
Every effort is made by Legend Tours to adhere to confirmed itineraries; however, we reserve the right to make changes to travel arrangements or itineraries or third party suppliers should it become necessary to do so.

If you wish to make a change to your booking, we will endeavour to assist you to make the changes wherever this is possible. Note that an amendment fee will be charged as well as whatever extra costs incurred as a result of the changes. Confirmation of the changes will only be made once we have received payment of the requested amendments. After departure it is understood that extra expenses incurred as a result of any change will be for the passenger’s account, and any unused service will not be refunded.

Cancellation Requests
If you wish to cancel your booking you must advise your consultant immediately in writing. Please note that you will be liable to pay the following cancellation charges, including but not limited to:

a. Where your booking includes a special fare, the airline levies the relevant charges. In some circumstances this may be 100% of the total fare, regardless of when cancellation is effected.

b. Where your booking is for a package, you will be responsible for all cancellation charges relating to the various components, of whatsoever nature, imposed by the suppliers providing the component forms part of such travel arrangements.

c. Legend Tours charges a minimum cancellation fee equal to 10% of the package price on any finalised booking. This would be in addition to any charges raised by the suppliers. However, Legend Tours reserves the right to charge an appropriate cancellation fee in its sole discretion, in particular circumstances. Any monies, which you have already paid to us, will be taken by us as payment or part payment of any cancellation charges.

Refunds by the Principals will be subject to their respective terms and conditions. Legend Tours will charge a fee for processing a request for refund. Principals may charge refund fees above those stated here. Some air tickets are completely non-refundable according to airline fare rules. Cancellations for any reason whatsoever, including medical reasons, death in the family, strikes, wars, weather, natural disasters, airline default or government travel warnings will not entitle you to any refund in the case of non-refundable tickets nor of waiving the cancellation penalties in the case that the tickets can be refunded. If tickets can be refunded, cancellation penalties are imposed by the airline. Trip cancellation and interruption insurance are therefore highly recommended. For the best coverage, travel insurance should be purchased at the same time as the airline tickets.

Clients request for refunds will only be accepted in writing. Refunds will be requested from respective Principals and the fina refund amount will only be established once all refund amounts are received by The Agency, considering all local and international bank charges and currency fluctuations. The refund process can take anything between 3 (three) to 6 (six) months.

Should you experience any problems with your holiday whilst away, you must immediately inform Legend Tours and/or the supplier of the services in question. If you are still dissatisfied, you must notify Legend Tours immediately to enable us to resolve the problem. Failure to do so may impede Legend Tours ability to be able to assist in this regard.

Passports, Visas and Health
It is entirely the client’s duty to ensure that all passports and visas are current, valid, obtained on time and that any vaccinations, inoculations, prophylactics (e.g. for malaria) and the like, and proof thereof where required, have been obtained. Passports must be valid for 6 months after return to South Africa. Please check the requirements with your travel consultant before travelling.

Legend Tours will not assume any obligation or liability and the client indemnifies Legend Tours against any consequences of non-compliance. It is the client’s duty to familiarise him/herself with the inherent dangers of and mental and/or physical condition required for the proposed travel arrangements. The client must ensure that the details supplied to Legend Tours mirror those details shown on their passport for international travel and ID documents for local travel.

Medical Problems: If you or any member of your party/family member has any medical problem or disability which may affect your holiday, you need to give us full details in writing at the time of booking. If we reasonably feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person concerned, we reserve the right to decline their reservation. We reserve the right to cancel the reservation should we become aware of any such medical problem or disability which has not been disclosed.

General Information
a. Taxes: Legend Tours advise you of all mandatory taxes, which you must pay before departure. However, many countries charge departure taxes that can only be paid locally.

Details of departure taxes can be obtained from the relevant airline when you reconfirm your flight details.

b. Special requests: We can pass on any special requests that you may wish to make at the time of booking, but acceptance of such requests is at the discretion of the airline or other supplier and in no circumstances are special requests guaranteed. Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the supplier, or the inclusion of the special request on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation, is not confirmation that the request will be met.

c. Renovations: Hotels undergo renovations from time to time and take all possible steps to limit disruption to their guests. We will not entertain complaints or requests for refunds if a hotel is carrying out renovations whilst a guest is resident. If we are specifically advised of renovation work, dates may be provided. It is important to remember that these are subject to change, and we are not always notified.
