The client will be asked a written confirmation of order for every service. This confirmation is a quote including the client’s details, dates, schedule, content of the tour, final price, and possible discount. An order is definitively confirmed once the document is filled in and the deposit sent.
The client will be required a minimum 50% deposit for every service. The receipt of this deposit constitutes the definitive confirmation for the order.

Additional hours that are not included in the original quote imply a 30 € fee per hour.
Services during more than 4 consecutive hours imply a 18 € compensation for lunch if the guide is not invited to lunch with the client for free.
The price for a service may be paid by cash, check (payable to « Jean-Alexandre Benguigui » or « New Generation Guide »), or bank transfer. Bank account details are available on the quote.
Invoices are given to clients provided the total amount is paid at the end of the service.
No discount will be given for invoices paid in full with the confirmation of order.
