SPECIAL JOURNEY SOLO TRAVELLER CLUB
Our Solo Traveller Club is an initiative designed to match solo travellers on select cruises who are willing to share twin accommodation, saving on single supplements and offering an opportunity for companionship whilst travelling. Only travellers of the same gender will be matched and there are no guarantees that a match will be possible; if we are unable to find a match, single supplements will apply. To join, please contact us to register. Special booking and payment conditions apply. Detailed conditions are outlined on the registration, and submission of the form is deemed consent to these terms. Available on: “Croatia & Slovenia by Land & by Sea”, “Croatian Encounter” and “Complete Croatia”.
Cruise-Croatia and its principles reserve the right to cancel any tour or cruise up to 4 weeks before departure. Should it be necessary to cancel a tour or cruise, alternative arrangements will be recommended, however if a suitable substitution is not found, a full refund
will be offered.
TOUR CONDITIONS & SPECIAL REQUESTS
The services we provide are suitable for almost anyone and age is seldom an issue. An eagerness to be involved and a positive approach to travel will result in a satisfying and rewarding holiday. It is however your responsibility to ensure that you have a suitable level of fitness to undertake your chosen travel itinerary and you must inform Cruise-Croatia of any medical condition that may prevent your full participation. For the enjoyment and safety of our passengers, Beyond Travel and its principles reserve the right to substitute hotels and amend itineraries if necessary. If a re-routing of a tour is required, Beyond Travel will cover any additional costs associated with those changes within the dates of the particular tour. Any other changes (e.g. airline changes) which result in additional hotel nights, meals or other services are the responsibility of the passenger. Beyond Travel should be advised at time of booking of any dietary requirements or special requests, such as bedding preferences, non-smoking rooms, etc. Whilst we can not guarantee, we will endeavour to honour these requests when possible.
Documentation is normally issued within 4 weeks of your departure from Australia or New Zealand..
PASSPORTS & VISAS
Australian and New Zealand citizens must hold a current passport which must be valid for at least six months after your departure. It is the responsibility of the individual to obtain the required visas prior to departure. Failure to do so which results in the need to cancel travel arrangements will incur normal cancellation penalties.
Cancellation and refund conditions are strictly enforced; therefore, we recommend that you carry comprehensive travel insurance which covers cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances or those beyond your control. Ask your Cruise-Croatia consultant for a choice of policies or click the insurance tab on our website for a competitive quote.
