Design Fee Agreement


Travel Design Fee Agreement

This Agreement, along with the Terms and Conditions available at, comes into effect upon your signature (electronic or written) or payment of Planning Fees and remains in force until terminated in writing by either party—Pura Vida Vacations ("Agency") and the traveler(s) ("you" or "Traveler").

Travel Planning Fees vs. Travel Costs

  1. Planning Fee: This fee, paid to Pura Vida Vacations, covers travel planning, booking, and consulting services. It is non-refundable, regardless of your decision to book or cancellation of reservations.

  2. Travel Costs: These include expenses for transportation, accommodation, tours, insurance, and other travel services. Each supplier has its own policies on refunds and cancellations, and understanding them is crucial for understanding your financial obligations.
