1. TRAVEL CONTRACT: An official travel contract between the tour operator, travel agency or direct client with Promotora Neptuno is established with our confirmation and our terms and conditions come into effect as per this moment.
2. REQUESTS: Promotora Neptuno services may be requested by all travel agencies, tour operators, airlines and tourist groups in the whole world.
3. CONFIRMATIONS: All services must be confirmed only and exclusively by Promotora Neptuno.
4. RATES: All prices are provided in USD, net-rates, per person (services) and per room (hotel rates), valid in the mentioned period and are subjetct to changes without previous notice.
5. EXCEPTIONS: We understand, of course, that worldwide tour operators having already published a catalogue with our prices cannot change those anymore. In these cases Promotora Neptuno accepts for reservations from the tour operator catalogue the old prices we offered for the catalogue. Only in extreme situations these rates will be adapted.
6. HOTEL RATES: If there´s only one hotel price, this rate refers to the lowest price of standard rooms in low season. An increasing number of hotels run their company like an airline. Therefore it might happen, that hotels will be confirmed with higher rates than mentioned in our manual. The reason for this is that there are no standard rooms to the lowest prices anymore available in the hotel. Of course, we will always explicitly emphasize this case to you in the confirmation.
7. VALUE ADDED TAX: Some years ago, the Colombian government decided to exclude foreign tourists from the value added tax (IVA form Spanish, currently at 19%) added to accommodation rates with regards to reservations and payments made in the exterior. Therefore our prices are stated without the IVA.
8. FLIGHTS: Domestic flight prices are very fluctuant and will depend on the date of the reservation, date of the flight, itinerary, airline and season. Tariffs must be re-confirmed when booking and are under request. National airport fee is included in the flight prices. Infantes up to 2 year travel free of charge without the right for a seat. They must be carried by an adult. Kids between 2-12 years pay usually between 67% and 100% of that price.
