In 2021 we intend to operate all our schedule departures. In case of any unforeseen circumstances, AST reserves the absolute right to change and/or alter any specific departure date and amend or cancel any of the arrangements for particular itinerary. Should there be insufficient number of bookings for the tour, AST can close the departure. In the unlikely event that a departure is cancelled, we will re-book passengers on the same tour with a different departure date or a similar tour. All re-bookings are subject to availability. If that tour is unacceptable, AST will refund all funds paid to AST; there is no additional liability. AST cannot assume responsibility for any additional costs or fees relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of air tickets, ground transportation, extra accommodation surcharges, travel insurance, visa fees, taxes or any other travel arrangements not made through AST.
No refunds will be made for unused services (like transfer services) or unused part of the program included in tour price once travel arrangements have commenced, especially in the cases where passengers are unable to travel due to invalid travel documents (passports, visas). In case that client cannot find the arrival transfer/driver at the airports, they have to call emergency contact number in the travel documents.
Any complaints regarding service have to be given directly to the AST representative (Tour Escort) on the spot. Any complaints regarding service on board have to be given directly on the ship to AST representative (Cruise manager). Complaints have to be sent to AST within 21 days from the customer’s departure. Otherwise, such complaints will not be taken into consideration.
In order to ensure congenial atmosphere, AST reserves the right to accept or reject any person as a tour participant and to expel from the tour any participant whose conduct is deemed incompatible with the interests of the tour group.
AST strongly recommends insurance to cover cancellation charges, trip interruption, accidents and baggage loss. AST accepts no responsibility for damage or loss of baggage or other personal property.
We do not cover any refunds for missed /late flights and, subsequently, late arrival/no start of the tour. All additional costs have to be settled on the spot by passengers. We recommend that in case of delay clients call the emergency phone number which is in the travel documents.
Program prices are per person, based on two persons sharing a room. Single room supplements and triple room reductions are listed where applicable. When applies, transfers are provided complimentary only from airports to hotel and vice versa by motor coach or private vehicle, only on the first and the last day of the tour, as per the itinerary, under the condition that accurate transfer information is provided. Pre-stay and post-stay transfers are not included in the tour rate, but can be arranged on request.
The hotels classified in AST brochure are based on local classifications, which vary from country to country. Hotels listed in this brochure will be used on almost all departures. If changes become necessary for any reason, booked accommodation can be substituted only by an accommodation unit of the same or higher category and at the price confirmed during booking. While every effort is made to reserve twin bedded rooms, it may happen that a hotel provides some double bedded rooms instead. If such thing happens, double bedded rooms will try to be allocated to couples. Triple share rooms are generally based on an extra rollaway bed, which is not always suitable for adults. Please note that standard policy is that hotel rooms are available for check-in after 14:00. Early check-in needs to be advised in advance and may require a pre-night to be booked and paid for.
During national holidays, certain facilities (museums, restaurants, sightseeing tours and shopping) may be limited or unavailable. Alternatives will be offered whenever possible.
In case of land tours, porterage is not included in program price. No responsibility is accepted for loss or damage to baggage, travel documents or passenger’s belongings, nor for luggage loss that occurred in the hotels or luggage left in the bus depots during night periods. AST will not accept responsibility for baggage damage caused by normal wear and tear in handling and transportation. All lost luggage on connecting flights is not responsibility of AST. We do not guarantee that the luggage will be found and delivered to assigned hotel. We will provide assistance on the spot (through our tour director and local offices) that will help the passenger communicate with airline company.

It is strictly forbidden to throw rubbish into the sea. It is not allowed to bring drinks and food on the boat, except personal care products, liquid medicine, food products for infants and special diets. Tap water on the ship is not safe for drinking.

ONLY FOR GROUP BOOKINGS - LAND TOURS - to be sent upon request (will not be written at brochures).
The most efficient, economical, and profitable way to operate your group tour is to book on one of our scheduled departures. Our buying power will immediately be to your benefit, and our itineraries are tested and proven to be the best combination of touring, city stays and leisure time. Our escorts are the best and have worked with us for many years.
AST will block space for your group on our published itineraries, subject to availability. With less than 35 paying passengers, your group will travel with other AST passengers. With 35 or more paying passengers, you may have the exclusive use of the motor coach and tour escort. If you have planned for exclusive use and the number of passengers falls below the minimum of 35 passengers required, AST reserves the right to book additional passengers to the tour. To guarantee exclusive occupancy for groups numbering less than the minimum of 35 passengers, EUR 150 may be paid for each seat. If your group number falls to 21 passengers or less, the supplement for exclusive use of motor coach and tour escort is EUR 200 per person. It is not possible to have exclusive motor coach and tour escort for less than 15 paying passengers. Selecting a scheduled date virtually guarantees that your group will travel despite the number of passengers you book. If you wish, you may (with 35 passengers) pick up any date and we will obtain space for you.
At the time of booking, a fully refundable deposit of EUR 1.000 for exclusive use or EUR 500 for non-exclusive use is required. Additional deposits of EUR 100 per person are required, as each member is booked.
The review date is 90 days prior to departure and any tour space for which there is no deposit paid will revert back to AST.
The rooming list due date is approximately 60 days prior to departure. This is the latest date for space to be released without forfeiture of deposit. It is extremely important that on the due date or before the rooming list due date, you contact us and advise the names of passengers booked to date. If all space has not been sold, your options will be as follows:
For each 20 paying passengers, AST provides 1 free of charge in twin accommodations.
If your own tour escort accompanies the group, please take note that AST escort is the person fully in charge for smooth operations for the portion of the trip operated by AST. He/she will most happily work and confer with your tour escort, but announcements to the group and decision making must be left to the AST tour escort. Please understand that this cooperation is necessary only to avoid conflicting information given to tour members, which could interfere with the tour. It should also be noted that the AST tour escort cannot make alterations or deviations to the itinerary at the request of your group escort.
