Reservations and Deposits: Occasionally, deposits payments are accepted as a condition to reserve a seat/spot for you, until the date specified on the deposit payment information. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AFTER 10 DAYS OF MAKING THEM. Deposits can only be applied towards the trip for which they were made. Formal confirmation for the tour will only be made upon receipt of full payment for the tour. Formal confirmation will be made by e-mail from DominicanTour@aol.com to our customer, or to any known member of the group.
The vacation dates are not secured until payment has been made in full, and in order for this agreement to be effective, and for Latin-Travels to officially consider it a legitimate package for a tour group. In a situation where extension of time to pay in full is granted to the customer, and it happens that the minimum required number of participants are not reached and paid for, 60 days before the tour date, the group tour will be cancelled, and monies refunded t the customer, based on our refund policy as narrated in the following section. The customer has the right at any time to choose a package with fewer participants, which will actually mean paying more per person, as detailed in our package plans. Any change in tour date/s after payment has been made, automatically voids the original tour arrangement, and the cancellation and refund policy below, will go into effect.

All cancellations must be made either in writing by e-mail to DominicanTour@aol.com or by calling 1-917-587-4966, or by mail to Latin-Travels, Inc. P.O. BOX 361711, DECATUR, GA 30036. The date we receive your cancellation notice is considered the effective date of the cancellation notice.

All three categories of insurance may be obtained from your travel agent or Latin-Travels.

Within one week of departure, if the change can be accommodated, there will be a $100.00 per person charge.
