Please note that we do not normally recommend intercity bus rides and domestic flights right before or after international flights, due to possible delays. In general, we do not undertake possible extra costs and other consequences caused by any delays, last minute changes, cancellations made by flight companies themselves for various reasons; mostly due to unavoidable conditions such as bad weather conditions, natural disasters, serious accidents, technical problem and other operational deficiencies. We may also need to change the promised hotels for similar reasons beyond our control. These are very small possibilities but we would still like to warn our guests in advance, in order to avoid any disappointment in the future. In such cases we promise to offer our clients the best alternative with least cost. The compulsory travel agency insurance we supple is unfortunately an unavoidable bureaucratic requirement and does not cover all these risks. Therefore we recommend our valued clients to buy a more comprehensive international travel insurance additionally which should cover such risks.
