Deposit & Payment
For all Goddard & Howse small world journeys and independent holidays we ask for a deposit of $500pp and a signed booking form to secure the reservation. The deposit is refundable until final payment
Full and final payment is due 75 days prior to departure when an invoice will be issued for the balance due. Please take a moment to read our booking Terms and Conditions on the booking form. Once you sign and lodge this form with our office you are agreeing to the terms and conditions offered by Goddard & Howse. After final payment there is no refund. We are pleased to accept cash, cheque or direct deposit. We accept all major credit cards; please note some credit card transactions attract a small fee of between 1 and 3 % depending on the card/bank product. We will advise you at time of final payment what fee applies to your credit card product.
Currently a visa is required to visit your chosen destination (with the exception of Thailand). Goddard & Howse will arrange your visa as a complimentary service. Our office will provide you with the necessary forms and instruction for completion. Embassy`s do have charges for the issue of visa`s and the cost will be notified to you at time of booking confirmation. Processing time varies – expect one week and longer if multiple destinations are required.
Please have a current passport with at least six months validity. We will need your passport for a few days so we can get the right stamps in place. Your passport with completed visa forms along with current passport size photos(the number of photos required varies according to destination) should be lodged with our office at time of final payment.
Return international flights from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne to your destination are included in all of our advertised small world journeys with the exception of China- Manchuria and Yellow River Hinterland (flights offered separately).Goddard and Howse reserve the right to use whichever airline suits the routing and advertised departure dates. If you would like to make your own arrangements for international flights we will offer a credit against the cost of the journey. The amount of the credit is on application and varies with each departure. Contact us for more detail.
Often airlines have strict booking terms and conditions which Goddard & Howse must follow. As a variation to Goddard and Howse payment terms and conditions (with reference only to international airfares) we may ask for a further payment for the international flights once the airline requires ticket issue. Please note internal flights on your chosen small world journey are included in the advertised price.
For independent holidays with Goddard and Howse we are pleased to assist with Intentional and internal flights. Please contact us for a quote. You are welcome to make your own arrangements for International flights – if so we ask for arrival and departure flight detail.
