PRICE & REQUIREMENTS FOR JUN/JUL TOUR 2015
The cost of the tour from Cape Town or Johannesburg is R45 185.00. Only cheques, EFT or cash payments are accepted – no credit card payments. The price is subject to an exchange rate of R15.00 against the Euro. If the exchange rate or the price of the air ticket changes by more than 3% (either way) the price will be adjusted. The final price will be calculated on 01 May 2015.
HOW THE FINAL COSTS ARE CALCULATED
An amount of R10000.00 for the air ticket and administration is subtracted from the total – R29 185.00
The amount of R45 185.00 is then divided by the original exchange rate of R35 185.00 divided by 15.00 = Euro 2345. This is the Euro price of the tour.
The amount of Euro 2345 is then multiplied with the purchase price of the exchange rate of the day, for example Euro 2345 x 16.00 = R37 520.00. R10 000 is then added once again. If the exchange rate should weaken to R16.00 the tour price will increase to R47 520.00. Should the rate of exchange improve, the price of the tour will naturally be less.
