Guaranteed Travel for EU Residents

The combination of travel services offered to you constitutes a travel package within the meaning of the Package Travel Directive (EU) 2015/2302. This means that you are entitled to make claims under all EU legislation applying to travel packages.

In order to meet its statutory obligation to provide a guarantee, Samsara Vegan Travels uses STO Garant for all travel packages. STO Garant is a recognised guarantee scheme. It consists of an escrow account in which your payment is held until your trip has come to an end. As the traveller, you do not pay Samsara Vegan Travels but instead pay the booking sum into the escrow account belonging to Stichting Derdengelden Certo Escrow, a payment service provider registered with the Dutch Central Bank (DNB) and the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM). Stichting Derdengelden Certo Escrow processes all payments on behalf of STO Garant.
The booking payment is released to Samsara Vegan Travels by the escrow account the day after your trip has come to an end. If Samsara Vegan Travels files for bankruptcy or is granted a suspension of payments before your trip comes to an end, the booking sum will be released to Stichting Take Over (STO). Depending on the situation, STO will then ensure that the booking sum is refunded to you, that you are able to continue on your trip, or that you are able to travel to the final destination on your journey.
Samsara Vegan Travels has therefore protected itself against insolvency through STO Garant. If services are not provided by Samsara Vegan Travels due to insolvency, travellers can contact STO Garant, which has its offices at Torenallee 20, 5617 BC Eindhoven, Netherlands, by sending an email to info@sto-garant.nl or by calling +31 (0)85 13 02 943.

Payment procedure

For travelers who are EU residents

After the booking has been confirmed, a deposit of 20% of the travel sum must be paid within 7 days after receipt of the invoice.
The remainder of the travel sum must be paid no later than 6 weeks before the start date of the travel. If the booking is concluded within 6 weeks before the start date of the travel, the full travel sum must be paid instantly and in any case before the start of the travel.

After you have received a booking confirmation and invoice from Samsara Vegan Travels, you will receive an invitation from STO Garant by email with a username and password. You will be asked to log in to the secure section of the Certo Escrow website. After confirming the invitation you can immediately proceed to payment.
Depending on the time of booking, you will receive a request for payment of the deposit and later for payment of the remainder of the travel sum or for payment of the entire travel sum in one go if you book shortly before departure. For all bookings the full travel sum must be paid before departure to the ‘Stichting Derdengelden Certo Escrow’.

Certo Escrow allows for the following payment methods:

  • electronic payment with iDEAL
  • electronic bank transfer
  • normal bank transfer

Credit card payments can not be accepted at this moment.

For travelers who are NOT EU residents

After the booking has been confirmed, a deposit of 20% of the travel sum must be paid within 7 days after receipt of the invoice.
The remainder of the travel sum must be paid no later than 6 weeks before the start date of the travel. If the booking is concluded within 6 weeks before the start date of the travel, the full travel sum must be paid instantly and in any case before the start of the travel.
