Information and Pricing Policy
Before a booking is confirmed, Fez Travel reserves the right to amend brochure prices due to any circumstances outside the control of Fez Travel such as but not limited to changes relating to governmental action, increases in transportation costs (including schedule airfares and the cost of fuel) changes in any dues, taxes or fees chargeable for services (including landing taxes or embarkation/disembarkation fees at airports), increases in admission fees and exchange rates.
Bank transfers are accepted as the full amount payable as published. Fez Travel only accepts Credit Card payments in New Turkish Lira (YTL). The full amount payable in New Turkish Lira is calculated by taking the daily buying exchange rate on the date of sale multiplied by the full amount published and payable. The said exchange rate can be found at www.tcmb.gov.tr. Your bank will use their exchange rate when charging your Credit Card for the amount of New Turkish Lira that was withdrawn by Fez Travel.
