Permitted amendments include, without limitation, changes to accommodation or travel arrangements. Name changes are not permitted as many suppliers deem a name change to constitute a cancellation and re-booking. An amended booking which is subsequently cancelled will be subject to the cancellation fee of either the original departure date at time of amendment or the subsequent date, (whichever is the greater).
