Names changes incur fees and will be passed on to you for payment. If you are not an Australian passport holder please also check your re-entry visa.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

It is recommended that you purchase your fully comprehensive Travel Insurance Policy when you pay your initial deposit.

Our insurance has 2 starting dates, 1 from the date the policy is issued until departure date from Melbourne to cover against cancellation for unforeseen circumstances, and on the day of your departure you policy becomes fully comprehensive.  If you are planning more than 1 trip within a 12 month period it may be worth considering an annual policy

Please read your itinerary carefully and check that all details are correct and are as agreed with your consultant.

CHANGES/CANCELLATIONS

Once your itinerary is final and arrangements have been paid, any changes will incur amendment fees. Fees are charged by the supplier and by MRTS. Please see our terms and conditions for further information.

VISAS – RE ENTRY

We can always help you with visas but ultimately YOU are responsible for visas. Please double check that the country you are travelling to doesn’t require you to have a visa.  Ask us if you need help with this. Some countries have different rules for different nationalities. If you are not on an Australian Passport please make sure you have the correct documentation for re-entry upon your return to Australia. If you have a criminal conviction you must contact the appropriate consulates to check their procedures.
