– If a company supplier or suppliers is/are unable to host the event for any reason.

– If changes you wish to make to the booking mean it is uneconomical or impractical to hold the event.

Should scb tours and travel cancel an event, it shall be rescheduled for a mutually convenient date, or a refund shall be provided to the client.

Save as above, scb tours and travel shall be under no further liability to the client for cancellation of the event or any part of it. If, due to reasons beyond our control, an event is unable to take place due (but not limited) to the closure of premises, the ceasing of trading, or a change in supplier’s management, the company will provide the client with an alternative event and if this does not prove possible, shall refund the cost of the event.
The cancellation of a booking by the client must be made in writing and signed from the group head. The amount of the cancellation fee is calculated according to the date on which the company receives written cancellation notice:
– Between 6 weeks and 28 days before the departure date, the cancellation fee is 30% of the land arrangement plus the full cost of gorilla permits, chimpanzee permits and flight portions.

– 27 to 14 days before the departure date, the cancellation fee is 75% of the total cost of the booking plus the full cost of gorilla permits, chimpanzee permits and flight portions.

– 13 to 7 days before the departure date, the cancellation fee is 90% of the total cost of the booking plus the costs of gorilla permits, chimpanzee permits and flight portions.

– Within 1 week of the departure date, the cancellation fee is 100%.

Other than compulsory insurance, the decision of which insurance cover he/she obtains is solely the responsibility of the client.
If one or more clients of a larger private group cancel a trip, they will be charged their part of the shared costs for that group trip, so that the rest of the group will not face any price increase. This amount is in addition to the general cancellation fees
