Argentina Map

Argentina is a very large country, the 8th largest in the world, in fact! As such, traveling by land is too time-consuming. For example, a bus ride from Buenos Aires to Iguazu takes about 18 hours (as opposed to 1 hour and 50 minutes by plane), and the bus ride from Buenos Aires to El Calafate takes about 40 hours (as opposed to 3 hours and 15 minutes by plane).

For a worry-free travel experience, we strongly advise letting us take care of your domestic flights. It’s common for local airlines to make several flight changes before (and sometimes during) a trip. Taking care of domestic flights will allow us to closely monitor any flight changes, adapting your trip itinerary as needed.

Our flight issuing service includes: flights booking, daily tracking of flight status and changes, reconfirmation with the airline of each flight before each departure, booking of your flight seats, web check-in (not available for all flights) and assistance with your flights arrangements if there is any flight delay, change or cancellation before or during your trip.

Our Trip Cancellation Policy

If you cancel your travel arrangements for any reason, you may be entitled to a partial refund. Most international plane tickets and most Latin American domestic plane tickets are non-refundable. Some airlines will offer credits for future tickets, with penalties.

For all payments which have already made at the time we receive written notice that you must cancel your trip, the following fees will be charged:

  • » When only the first payment (approximately 20% to 30% of the total payment depending on the trip) has been made: up to 80% cancellation fee over the first payment will apply, as most domestic flight tickets are non-refundable after being paid for and issued.
  • » When the total payment has been made and with more than 45 days to the trip start date: up to 40% cancellation fee over the total payment will apply.
  • » 36 to 45 days before the start date of the trip and after the total payment has been made: up to 60% cancellation fee over total payment is applicable.
  • » 20 to 35 days before the start date of the trip and after the total payment has been made: up to 90 % cancellation fee over total payment is applicable.
  • » Fewer than 20 days before departure, or after departure: there will be no right to refunds. However, we will try to get as much of a refund as is possible for you, according to the cancellation policies of the service suppliers.

We’ll always try our best to get as much of a refund as possible, depending on the trip cancellation date, and the conditions of the service suppliers.

Important note: certain hotels, boats, lodges and airlines may have deposit terms and cancellation policies which vary from our own. We may need to collect an additional deposit from you to hold some reservations. The cancellation penalties on payments will be determined by these individual organizations and will override our policy.

Refunds will only be issued to you once we have received the funds back from the supplier(s). Generally, flight tickets cannot be refunded if they are partially used. We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund.

If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to claim these cancellation charges through your insurance company.
