These charges can be up to 100% of the cost of booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced. Fees may apply to all refunds. Traveloso reserves the right to charge 10% of your booking as an advisory fee in the case of cancellation, even for refundable booking items.
If your travel arrangements are cancelled for any reason (including force majeure) after you have paid, no refund will be available to you until Traveloso receives the monies from the Principal involved. In most cases, the Principal will charge a cancellation fee and in some instances you may not be able to claim a refund.
