South American Tour Tokens
How to Pay for Your Custom-Made South American Tour
You can have an initial free consultation via Zoom for 15 minutes. After the initial consultation, you can decide if you would like to book a ready-made tour which will be sold to you as advertised, with no further supplements, or if you wanted to do something completely unique to you. To be totally transparent we have devised a token system as below to cover custom-made tours only.
The tokens cover time-based in-depth consultations and the preparation of final itineraries. Once you have agreed to book, the value of the tokens will be deducted from the purchase price. If you do not go ahead with us, you have paid for some in-depth knowledge that you can either reuse at leisure with us within 12 months or simply take elsewhere.
Remember, there is no need to book tokens for ready-made tours, only for custom-made ones.
Simply put, I spend a lot of time coming up with something truly unique for you. This is a consultancy service which may require hours of research. I am not just putting things together out of a catalogue and this takes time, knowledge and passion.
The small token is a guarantee of satisfaction. I will always discuss in the initial free consultation the kind of token that may be appropriate for you and you can always upgrade at any time (but you can't downgrade).
tokens for couples and individuals
Each token is valid for one person, a second person will be at 50% of the cost rounded down. So for Blue support, for example, it will be £67 for two passengers, £89 for three and so on. For groups of over four or more, a different pricing structure will apply which will be agreed further to our initial free consultation. Token prices will be deducted from the final price.
Blue token - up to 7 nights itinerary
The Blue token is the entry one. Following the free entry, you will have access to a more in-depth discussion of the choice of venues and options, followed by an itinerary of your choice for a trip which will not exceed seven nights of stay in the Cono Sur area. The consultation cost is £45 for the first person. Subsequent travellers at 50%. No more than three changes of itinerary.
Bronze - up to 12 nights itinerary
Like the Blue token but for an itinerary of up to 12 days, with a maximum of three options. £70, including support for bargain transport booking. Subsequent travellers at 50%
Silver - up to 16 nights
As per Bronze with three options and a maximum itinerary comprising 16 nights and and three changes. Price per token £99. Subsequent travellers at 50%
Gold - 16 nights and over
Anything over 16 nights, maximum 5 itinerary changes includes also support while travelling through Zoom or similar means. Token price £135. Subsequent travellers at 50%
The small print
Please note while Conosur Experiences will be offering the consultancy services, you will be responsible for the direct payment of the services in question to the selected operators. Conosur Experiences does not deal with airlines or other vectors, but local ones will be provided as part of the packages in question. You will be responsible for the purchase of your long-haul tickets, but I would be delighted to provide advice as part of the above tokens.
You will be responsible for your own insurance and any health-related (vaccination) or visa matters. While I will endeavour to offer you information on these matters, I am not responsible for accuracy and visas, health permits, and similar is the traveller's sole responsibility. This is because, quite often, the information in question changes at very short notice (like entry requirements in Covid emergencies).
