TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR BOOKINGS
IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET OUT BELOW BEFORE BOOKING YOUR HOLIDAY WITH US.
HOW TO BOOK
Once you have decided on your holiday destination you can either fill up the booking form or contact us via email (email@example.com) or call us on our landline number (+911126194048).
Upon receipt of your request we shall send you a detailed itinerary setting out date wise program along with the package cost. In the event that you wish to finalise the package you are requested to send us the non-refundable deposit. You can make the payments via electronic bank transfer / cheque / credit card / debit card.
We shall upon your confirmation of the holiday destination and upon receipt of the non-refundable deposit, book your package (including the hotels and airline tickets). You are requested to make all remaining payments 8 weeks prior to your departure. Failing, which we shall cancel your bookings and shall not have any liability towards you. You shall indemnify us against any losses which we may suffer.
The non-refundable deposit payable when placing your order is 20 % of our package cost. Some hotels, especially beach resorts during peak season as well as some wildlife resorts, require an advance or full payment immediately on booking. In such cases a higher deposit may be required. For all the luxury train journeys a non refundable deposit of 30 Percent is required. We will advise you of these higher deposits, if required, while accepting your booking or soon after that. Please note the deposit amount is non-refundable, except in instances when we cancel the holiday or express our inability to operate it (other than for reasons not within our control).
It is a condition of your booking with us that you have adequate travel insurance. You are requested to provide us details of your travel insurance.
CONFIRMATION AND FINAL PAYMENT
You shall receive your holiday package normally within 7 days of receipt of the non-refundable deposit. The balance amount due must be paid no later than 8 – 12 weeks before departure, otherwise we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled and retain the deposit. If the booking is made within 8 weeks of departure, then the full tariff of the holiday is payable at the time of booking.
While in most instances we are able to confirm all the arrangements within a few weeks of receiving the order, in some instances changes may be required or some confirmations may have to wait till much later. If we need to make a significant change to the itinerary booked, such as a change of hotel or mode of transport or omission of a place, it is done with your concurrence. It is thus important that you give us sufficient contact telephone numbers, both for daytime and evenings, so that changes to your itinerary, if any, can be discussed.
For minor variations in the itinerary we do not make supplementary charges nor do we offer reductions. If however the cost variation exceeds 2% of the total holiday price (excluding insurance, visa and airport taxes), you may be required to pay the difference, if the costs go up, or become entitled to a refund, if the costs go down.
If the availability of a certain portion of the holiday, or a specific hotel, is critical for you it must be specified in writing at the time of booking the holiday. Non-availability of this critical element will entitle you to a full refund of all monies paid, including the deposit amount. If, after notification of the non-availability of critical element(s) of your holiday, you decide to still proceed with the holiday, you cannot subsequently cancel it using this condition.
In instances where you have not specified any critical elements, if the very nature of the holiday changes due to non-availability of significant portion(s) of the tour, we will ourselves offer you the option of a later departure or cancellation with full refund. An exception to this condition may be made for bookings within 8 weeks of departure. In such instances we may have to pay non-refundable deposits for confirming certain portions of the itinerary. If such last minute bookings are cancelled due to non-availability of some portion(s) of the holiday we would expect you to pay for the costs incurred by us. Such costs will be equal to our cancellation charges, as mentioned in these Booking Conditions later, or less.
Travel documents are normally sent to you approximately 4 weeks before departure. These include your domestic flight tickets (if purchased through us), final itinerary, local contacts at your destination, Vouchers for hotels and internal travel, etc., are delivered on arrival at the destination.
The price of your holiday is fully guaranteed and is not subject to any surcharges. This guarantee is applicable from the date of receipt of all payments due.
The price guarantee applies to complete holidays bought from us and does not cover the purchase of individual items such as airline tickets or hotel rooms.
It may be noted that price variations due to changes in itinerary are not surcharges and are not governed by this guarantee. Surcharge, as defined, is only attributable to variation in costs of existing elements of the itinerary.
Airport taxes are added to your invoice on actual costs and are not covered by this guarantee.
ALTERATION OR CANCELLATION BY YOU
If you wish to alter your programme after the booking has been accepted for reasons other than non-availability of the portion sought to be altered, an amendment fee of will be applicable and will vary according to the itinerary. Changing the date of departure will entail a higher charge of 20 % per person. If the alteration or date change is requested after the balance amount has become payable, higher charges may apply, especially if the change has a knock-on effect on the remaining arrangements or if advances have already been paid to our suppliers.
Any requests for alteration, once the tour has begun, will be treated sympathetically but we cannot guarantee their implementation. Any costs incurred in making such alterations, will be passed on to you and the unavailed portion of the holiday will attract 100% cancellation charges.
