F.A.Q

No third party sellers or agencies are allowed. The organizer (=travel expert) can be a guide or a company.

How to add multiple dates to a tour?
We use one template for one unique authoring program. If you have multiple dates on a tour, then don't create copies of the tour with different dates, just add all the dates to one template.
What does "tour is guaranteed" mean?
By choosing the “tour guaranteed” option, you confirm that it will take place regardless of the number of people in the group and other circumstances.

If this is not the case, and in order to conduct a tour, you need to recruit a certain minimum number of participants (for example, 3 people), then do not check the box, and write in the comments to the cost or the "important" block, with what number of participants the tour will definitely will take place.

If the tour is canceled due to a shortage of the group and there is no warning about this in the tour form on the website, you will need to return 100% of the prepayment to tourists, including our commission.

What is an "instant" booking?
By choosing the "instant" booking option, you enable the client to immediately pay for the tour without additional confirmation from you. If you need to communicate with the client before confirming his participation in the tour, DO NOT activate this option.
What is the cancellation policy?
The cancellation policy is your contract with the client on our website when canceling a booking. On their basis, conflicts on refunds between travel experts and clients are resolved. You register them on the tour page.

We recommend specifying the cancellation conditions in detail:
- What determines the amount of the prepayment refund?
- Is there a dependence of the refund amount on the number of days before the start of the tour, if so, which one?
- Are there options to transfer the prepayment to your other tours?

Example of cancellation conditions:
Cancellation within 15 days or less before the start of the tour - prepayment is non-refundable. In other cases, a refund minus the actual costs incurred (at least 15% of the tour cost). If restrictions on movement / border crossing are resumed - 100% of the prepayment is transferred without penalty to other dates with the issuance of a certificate.
If you find a replacement - 100% refund.

How is the description of the tour different from the blocks "day by day" and "conditions"?
Important fields that will help tourists better understand the value and uniqueness of your tour - its description and completed program in the "Day by Day" block.

In the tour description, tell clients what your tour will be about, what experience and impressions the tourist will have, what places and attractions you will visit. It should be small, but “selling”, catchy text. The description is the first thing a tourist sees when they open your tour.

No need to paint the entire program by the hour in the tour description. There is a special block “Day by day” for this.

In the “Day by day” block, you tell tourists your route in detail. You can add up to 3 photos for each day - do this to help the client visualize the journey.

If your new day repeats the program of the previous one, you can make this day similar to the previous one in the corresponding column.

Another useful block for tourists is "Conditions". Explain what is included in the participation fee. Please note: according to the rules of the service, tours with included accommodation and excursion services are published.

You can add paid options for tourists at their discretion in the “Additional Services” block. This can be single occupancy, ordering individual excursions, etc. Services will be offered to the client before booking.
