Travel in the Falkland Islands
The Falklands are off the beaten track and whilst suppliers all endeavour to supply a high degree of service, weather does play a large role in the smooth running of your programmes. Domestic flights in particular can, on occasion, be delayed. ITT will do their utmost to ensure the continued smooth running of your programme but an adaptable attitude and degree of flexibility may sometimes be required – it is all part of the adventure! ITT cannot accept any financial liability for any costs incurred in having to make changes to your itinerary due to weather or other force majeur delays. We recommend that you have adequate travel insurance to cover such incidents.
Accommodations outside of Stanley provide catering on a set menu basis (as opposed to a la carte) and it is therefore recommended that travellers advise ITT in advance of any special dietary requirements or food allergies.
We strongly recommend that at the time of making your booking you supply yourself/your client with travel insurance to cover cancellation charges, luggage claim, medical expenses, accident and others. Immigration policy into the Falklands requires that all visitors supply proof of medical insurance, which includes cover for medical evacuation, prior to being issued with a Visitors Permit.
A non-refundable deposit of GBP 200.00 (or USD or Euro equivalent) per person is required when we confirm your reservations. The balance becomes due 60 days prior to your arrival in the Falkland Islands.
Payment may be made either in GBP, USD or Euros (at the prevailing rate of exchange) by the following methods: Cheque: in GBP, drawn on a United Kingdom bank, made payable to International Tours & Travel Limited and sent to our office in the Falkland Islands. A bank charge of 0.25% (with a minimum charge of GBP 3.00) is levied on cheques and should be added to the total amount due. Telegraphic/Bank Transfer: to our account with Standard Chartered Bank in the Falkland Islands or through an account in the United Kingdom (account details on request). A bank charge of between GBP 6.00 and GBP 35.00 or USD or Euro equivalent, depending on to which bank the transfer is made, is levied on transfers and should be added to the total amount due. Credit Card: Master Card or Visa. A bank charge of 6.00% is levied on transactions and will be added to the total amount due.
