Terms and Conditions

COVID-19 BOOKING POLICIES

We have adjusted our policies regarding existing reservations and new reservations in the context of uncertainty related to COVID-19.

YOU ALREADY HAVE A RESERVATION?

We offer to postpone your reservation for a period of 12 months following the departure date originally scheduled (except the week of December 26 to January 2, 2020). If you ever choose a season or a boat offered at a higher rate, you will only have to pay the difference. In the contrary case, no refund will be granted.

YOU ARE RELUCTANT TO BOOK YOUR NEXT TRIP with NAVTOURS?

We are now asking for a deposit of only 10% of the booking amount, 100% refundable if your country or the destination does not recommend the trip when it's time to go. You therefore do not risk anything to reserve now.
