4. Flexible Booking Conditions & Corona Insurance

For complete peace of mind, FLEXI also includes a Covid Travel Protection!

6. Best Price Guarantee
Our prices are amongst the best you'll find, and booking through Galapatours means you'll never pay more than if you booked with the operator directly.
