Travel With Sparkle charges a professional service fee in order to perform various services required to plan and arrange your travel. Service fees are based on the time and complexity of the arrangements as well as the level of commission vendors pay to Ebony Vacations. Actual service fee amount will be quoted to client in advance of provision of services.
Service fees are per person, per booking and are non-refundable. Service fees are separate from any fees/payments paid to vendors and are paid directly and separately to Ebony Vacations by credit card or through PayPal.
Fees are due at the time the service is rendered and are not refundable. Fees are strictly for our time and expertise – we make no guarantees of results, written or implied.
