Frequently Asked Questions

What is the business model of Silverscreen Tours?

Silverscreen Tours is an online travel agency (OTA) exclusively promoting and reselling movie and TV themed tours to filming locations worldwide. We operate a free online marketplace where tour operators can promote and sell their filming locations tours.

Customers book and pay through Silverscreen Tours on behalf of the tour operator. Booking details are immediately forwarded to the tour operator. Payments are made at the beginning of each month for tours that took place the previous month, less our agreed upon commission. Silverscreen Tours keeps 20% commission of the total amount (+tax if applicable) booked by the customer, unless agreed in writing elsewhere.

Using our service does not, in any way, make us a contractual partner in the contracts between tour operators and customers.

What kind of tours are listed on your marketplace?

We are generally happy to include tours that focus on filming locations (e.g. the Dark Hedges) and/or filming attractions (e.g. Warner Bros. Studios London). A few additional non-filming locations (e.g. a stop at Giant’s Causeway during a Game of Thrones tour) are acceptable, as long as the main focus of the tour is the films and TV series. If we feel that a filming location tour doesn’t fit our brand, we are at full liberty not to list it.

What are our guidelines for accepting a filming location tour?

  • Tours must be themed around a movie or TV series well known to a global audience.
  • At least 2/3 of the visited locations must be filming locations of a movie or tv series.
  • detailed tour description and itinerary in English pointing out the scenes filmed on location.
  • 5 – 15 high resolution (min 1280 x 720 px) images of each tour for promotion.
  • All guides must have profound knowledge of the movie/tv series and give customers detailed information about the scenes shot on location.

How do you handle chargebacks?

A credit card transaction is not a guaranteed transaction, so the cardholder can carry out a so-called chargeback via their bank.

If your costumer’s bank accepts the chargeback, the money will be reclaimed, and Silverscreen Tours will reclaim the corresponding amount (without the commission) from you. As soon as we receive notification of a chargeback, we will notify you.

You are responsible for possible chargebacks. It is possible for Silverscreen Tours to lodge an objection to the chargeback on your behalf, but only on receipt of all relevant documentation, correspondence or any other necessary information, within 24 hours.
