Terms Of Service
I, CLIENT NAME (hereinafter “Customer”, “You”, or “Your”) hereby authorize South Destiny. (hereinafter “SOUTH DESTINY”, “Our”, or “We”) to charge my credit card in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth below. I understand that any charges will show on my billing statement as “southdestiny.com”.
Confirmations: All services booked by Customer are paid for in advance by SOUTH DESTINY and confirmations are issued to the Customer electronically for convenience. No bookings can be considered confirmed until we verify availability and payment is made. We will issue booking confirmations by email.
Modifications: We are happy to accommodate any service modifications made up to 24 hours from the time of the Service; the only fees, penalties, and time restrictions SOUTH DESTINYwill impose on the Customer are those which are imposed by the applicable service providers and not under our control. Last minute modifications requests (24-48hrs from the time of service) must be directed to our operations office 1-888-456-3212 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Any services or modifications requests cannot be considered confirmed or guaranteed until Customer makes new payment arrangements if there is a price increase, and SOUTH DESTINY provides Customer with updated confirmations.
Customer has read and verified the details and dates of the Services and by continuing with payment online agrees that everything is correct.
All cancellation requests must be received in writing and penalties may apply. The penalty-free cancellation date for each service on your itinerary is detailed on your Itinerary details under “Cancellations” as well as on the payment page before confirming your payment. If you need this link we can provide it upon request.
If you book and pay prior to the penalty-free date, you will see the option to make a one-time non-refundable deposit in order to confirm your lodging and tickets. The deposit is generally 20% of your trip total, you will see the exact amount on your Itinerary preview and payment area.
In most cases, with the exception of flights which are always non-refundable, the penalty-free date for cancellations is 45 days prior to each service. Always check your Itinerary cancellation details for exact dates as it varies.
As an alternative to cancellation and deposit loss, prior to the penalty-free date, we offer a service to postpone your trip for a later date. Postponement allows you to apply all payments you’ve already made along with the postponement cost to a future trip. After the penalty-free date passes, postponement service terms and potential penalties are handled on a case-by-case basis as not all providers have the flexibility to offer this in every case. Some terms and exclusions apply and this service depends on eligibility.
Refunds back to credit card are subject to a 5% administrative and processing fee. Refunds made by wire transfer will be subject to a $150 administrative fee.
No refunds for no-shows or unused portions of accommodations or packages. No refunds due to airline delays, strikes, political unrest or acts of God including hurricanes, earthquakes, fires and floods.
Travel insurance is strongly advised – World Nomads is recommended. A “cancel for any reason” type plan allows the most flexibility to completely mitigate anything that may come up.
