Price and contents of travel packages

All Loma Kaleva travel packages are for self-guided travel and intended for private use. Travel packages are designed and booked on the client’s commission and will be based on scheduled flights. Due to their specialized nature, these special terms and conditions apply. In all instances not specifically mentioned in these terms and conditions, normal travel package terms and conditions apply. The prices and contents of travel packages will be based on the prices, the currency exchange rates, and destination information available on each date.

Only services specifically mentioned in the travel itinerary are included in the price of the trip. Compulsory aviation taxes mentioned in the air ticket are included in the price. However, the customer is responsible for paying any local airport taxes and fees to local officials when departing the destination. In countries within the European Union, valued-added tax is included in the price of the trip. The travelers are responsible for making sure they know the departure times of both their outbound as well as inbound flights. Separate male or female places are not available for persons traveling alone.

Discounts for children

Airliners often grant a discount for children aged between 2 and 11 years. Infants under the age of 2 cost 10% of the full price of the ticket, and are not entitled to a seat. Discounts for children granted by hotels vary according to the destination and the hotel. More information is available from CWT Kaleva Travel offices.
