If the services that we provide for you are mainly hotel reservations, we reserve the right to apply other cancellation fees, as some of the hotels charge us already 45 days before arrival 100% cancellation fees.
If a group of 2 people or more has confirmed the trip and one or several persons cancel at 1 day or less before arrival date, we’ll have to either apply higher cancelation fees or the other participants have to pay more. If we’ve made domestic flight reservations for the clients upon firm bookings, they’ll be non –refundable. We recommend to the clients to make a cancellation insurance.

- If the customer decides to interrupt the tour during the trip for whatever reasons (health, business, family affairs) etc. LE VOYAGEUR can’t reimburse any part of the tour. If the customer decides to change the itinerary of the tour after it was already firmly booked, we reserve us the right to charge a supplementary handling fee, besides additional costs that might occur for the changed itinerary. Le Voyageur cannot be held responsible and we accept no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage to personal property. We highly recommend that you take out insurance against such eventualities.
- Please be aware that the hotel standard in Madagascar is not the same as in Europe or the USA. We cannot be held responsible for this. If there should be any complaints about hotels or local serviceproviders during the tour, you have to inform the hotel or service provider immediately and they’ll resolve the problem. If they can’t resolve it, clients and the hotel or service provider must inform Le Voyageur immediately. All complaints made later can’t be accepted. We cannot be held responsible for services that clients book directly on site with local providers.
