Terms & Conditions-policies

For each of our tours there is a detailed description of what is, or isn’t, included on our site www.egyptjoy.com. Of course we can adapt each tour to your specific preferences and needs (but the price may differ). According to our values we want to guarantee clarity about what is included in each tour. One of our primary objectives is to give the maximum possible satisfaction in a completely carefree environment.


Tour Prices:

All prices in this site (egyptjoy.com and our affiliates) are based on airfares, land rates and exchange rates in effect at the time of printing and on group rates of 1 passenger (customer) or more. All prices are subject to change without notice prior to departure due to major currency fluctuations, ie: changes in fuel prices and/or unforeseen economic circumstances.


Reservations, Deposits and Final Payments:

Please complete the Site Reservation form, with full names as they appear on passports, and email it to us (standard procedure included in the checkout process) with the required per person deposit. Receipt of your deposit shall act as your agreement to these terms and conditions. Balance is due 1 day before departure date. If final payment is received less than 1 day, a late fee will be accessed in the amount of $25.00 (unless specified to Egypt Joy Travel of your intent to pay by Cash on Delivery). If final payment is made by credit card (Visa or MasterCard), Egypt Joy Travel requires a completed credit card authorization form (included in PayPal) or have the card on hand with valid passport for identification. All payments should be made payable to Egypt Joy Travel. We reserve the right to refuse payment for any reason.


Late Reservations:

If a booking is made within 1 day of departure, full payment plus applicable taxes and optional insurance is due at the time of booking. There will be a $25.00 late processing fee applicable plus cost of any express travel arrangements. Money order, bank check, certified check or credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) will be accepted.

All non-Egyptian citizens must contact the appropriate consular office for entry visa requirements pertaining to their trip.

If a change is possible, a $100 per person administrative fee, plus any applicable airline change fees, will be assessed once air Ticket or Vouchers have been issued. Airline penalties vary depending on carrier.

Should you decline an alternate date or should we cancel the tour outright, the limit of our liability to the customer is the entitlement to a full (100%) refund of the deposited or paid amount. We will not be liable, however, for costs incurred by you not paid to us, such as visas and passport costs, items of a personal nature, domestic transportation either by ground or air etc. nor will we be liable for any psychological damages, traumas, stress, disappointment, personal and financial loss resulting from our change of departure date or cancellation of a tour.
