Questions about the booking procedure

How does the enquiry/booking process work?

Once you have submitted your enquiry/booking request we will send you a tailored quote. If you indicate to us that you would like to make a firm booking, we will then send you a written confirmation of your booking. In the case of long-term bookings, we will remain in regular contact with you in order to provide you with notice of deadlines and check current booking levels. Once the free cancellation period has elapsed your booking status will be amended accordingly. Your travel documents include final details of your tour, and will arrive with you in good time before the start of your tour. Where required we are happy to greet you or your guests personally upon arrival in Dresden.

What are the terms of payment?

After your booking you will get a confirmation. Generally payment of 50% of the tour price is due 4 weeks before the tour commences. This allows travel documents to be sent to you in good time prior to the start of the tour. Final payment is due within two weeks of tour completion. Any costs or credits which arise out of the amendment of the number of people travelling, the program of events or the tour timeframe will either be settled along with the final payment or invoiced separately.
You can pay by bank transfer, credit card (Visa/Mastercard) or crossed cheque. Transfer fees are to be paid by the customer.

When is the end of the free cancellation period?

As a general rule, the free cancellation period for the entire tour ends 42 days before the tour start date. We reserve the right to alter the length of this period in accordance with the service partners involved in the tour. Ticket bookings are subject to special conditions. You may find different terms in your enquiry/ booking confirmation.
