Until that moment, all quotes are merely informative and all services will be subject to availability at the time of payment reception. AM Stop Bilbao / Spain Collection will not proceed with any bookings for tours or services until the such deposit (or full payment if applicable) has been received, and therefore any final prices can not be guaranteed until the services for your customized proposal are booked and secured.

Our proposal pricing is reflected always in €uros and is based on double occupancy except where indicated. Although not expected, such prices may be modified due to unexpected significant external factors not forecasted at the time of quote due to fluctuations in hotel accommodations, transportation costs (e.g., fuel); Government action, such as increases in taxes or VAT, etc. Any modifications to our proposal of customized itineraries, including dates or number of people traveling, will require revising our proposal

Eventually, they may also charge an extra cost to be paid directly at hotels by the clients.

All cancelations must be received in writing at email@example.com or any of our valid agents’ email addresses.
Due to the level of personalization and complexity of some services and tours, attendance to special festivities (i.e. San Fermin feast in Pamplona or Easter week in Seville), etc, the standard cancelation policy may vary for some of our customized itineraries, please check and read the notes of the cancelation policy for your specific customized itinerary in each case.
It is the client’s sole responsibility to ensure that they have a valid passport and/or visa (if applicable) and that you meet all necessary entry requirements of the country or countries you will be visiting, as well as those for your return home.

All travelers, without exception (including babies and persons under 18 years of age), shall carry valid documentation, whether a passport or National Identification Document (for those countries where a passport is not required).

Except where otherwise stated in these terms and conditions, neither we nor our suppliers are liable for any loss, damage, compensation, cancellation or expense you may suffer or incur if we are unable to perform our contractual obligations as a result of any event of ‘force majeure’.

Such events include but are not limited to: war or threat of war, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, strikes, natural or man-made disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemic or pandemic, closures of borders, seaports and airports, or any other similar events beyond our or our suppliers’ control.
If you or your clients are unable to travel due to a force majeure situation (eg either Spain or Portugal being closed to visitors) then we would not apply our standard cancellation policy but rather provide eventual credit* for a rescheduled trip.
*Credit would not include any costs for non-refundable items on the trip, which may include domestic flights, high-speed train tickets, pre-purchased admission tickets for monuments, and others, and these amounts would be deducted from the credit offered.
We strongly recommend that you purchase a comprehensive and adequate travel insurance plan during your travels. Make sure all your party members traveling with you are covered under the same policy too. The inclusion of additional cancellation coverage is also highly recommended.
