Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our website for a specific stay at a property/Tours/Acitivity, however, these rates made by accommodations providers may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example in respect to cancellation and refund. Please check the room and rate details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
In the event of a crossed-out rate, we look at the prices currently being charged by the property in the 30-day window around your proposed check-in date. From the prices within this window, we display the third-highest price on offer as the crossed-out rate. To ensure we are making a fair comparison, we always use the same reservation conditions (meal plan, cancellation policy and room type). This means that you get the same room for a lower price compared to other check-in dates at the same time of year.
We want you to pay the lowest price possible for your stay. Should you find your accommodation, with the same reservation conditions, at a lower rate on the Internet after you have made a reservation through us, we will match the difference between our rate and the lower rate under the terms and conditions of the Best Price Guarantee.

However, we would not be responsible or liable to pay any compensation or damages or consequential loss or to refund any other expense incurred by you.
14. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR DOCUMENTS AND POSSESSIONS
You will have to take the risk and responsibility of all your baggage, belongings, currency, valuables, documents and personal effects (collectively ‘baggage’) at all times during the tour, whether during travel on the airline or during your stay in hotel or during your travel in coaches, while on excursions or otherwise.
If you forget to carry or if you lose essential travel documents such as passport, visa, tickets etc. , you may be compelled to curtail the tour and you may have to incur extra expenses, for which you alone shall be responsible.
In view of what is stated above, please carefully note that:
1. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage in respect of your baggage etc. or their contents whether due
to theft, accident, negligence or otherwise;
2. We shall not be responsible for any cancellation or curtailment of your tour compelled by any such loss of baggage etc. and we shall pay no compensation or refund to you;
3. Some coverage in respect of baggage loss or damage may be provided by insurance (see below the Insurance section).
It is advisable that you do not carry valuables on the tour. However, if you carry any valuables, we recommend that you use all available facilities to keep them secure during your tour. In this regard, some hotels provide Safe Deposit Lockers (which may be charged separately). In case of airlines, we recommend that you declare your valuables to the airline at the time of check-in and pay an additional charge, as may be stipulated by the airline, to make the airline responsible for valuables. Without such declaration, airlines can invoke limitation of liability protections provided in international conventions and laws.
If your baggage is lost or misplaced at any time during the course of your tour, it is your responsibility to take all appropriate actions to le complaints with the concerned authorities, including police, airline of ce etc. Please understand that as the Tour Manager is responsible for the whole group of tour participants, he may not be in a position to escort you to lodge a complaint with the authorities, as it could compromise the convenience and time of the group.
Furthermore, Tour Managers / Assistants / Escorts are assisting the tourists throughout the tour and are not responsible for tourists’ baggage or any kind of personal belongings. On the entire tour the tourists have to be responsible and carry the baggage on their own. Instructions as well as information of the tour are to be followed in the group tours and the tour manager / company is not responsible for any instructions overruled by the tourists and / or its consequences.
TRAVEL DOCUMENTS AND CLEARANCES
It shall be solely your responsibility to hold valid travel documents and statutory clearances, to enable you to travel on the tour such as passports, visas, con rmed air- tickets, insurance and medical insurance
15. VISA GUIDANCE SERVICES
It is necessary for you to ensure that you have the appropriate passport, which is valid for at least six months after you return to India. For guests travelling to Malaysia, please ensure that the minimum validity of the passport should be atleast 9 months after your date of return to India. Furthermore, you will be required to take the appropriate visas for going on the tour.
We provide you visa guidance services for which we will charge you. Such charges may include not only the actual visa charge and costs incurred but also our service charge. Please note that UK and USA visa will have to be obtained by you directly; however we may assist you in preparing and submitting the visa application based on documents provided by you. Even if you do not get your visa, you will be liable to pay the applicable charges. If you already possess a visa or wish todothevisa/sonyourown,youwouldbe entitled only for the refund of actual visa / s cost and the portion of charges attributable to our service charges will still have to be paid by you.
It is your responsibility to promptly furnish to us all documents required for application of your visas etc. latest by 60 days before the departure date. In fact, in the current scenario it would be far more prudent to furnish all documents at least four months before the departure date. Given the security concerns and the over-cautious approach adopted by embassies and consulates, visa processing can take quite long.
Please note that we may receive documents submitted late but we are not responsible for rejection or non-receipt of visas due to inadequate or late submissions. You are required to furnish only genuine documentation.
Granting / rejection of visas is the sole discretion of embassy / consulate. We only act as a facilitator for obtaining visas. You may be required to appear personally before embassy / consulate for any interview(s) / providing biometrics. The Company shall under no circumstance be held liable or responsible for rejection of visas and any other incidental or consequential loss,
damage, cost or expense. You undertake not to proceed legally against the company for such rejection of visas, unless there is a manifest error committed by the company.
We would not be responsible / liable in any manner whatsoever for any clerical error done by the concerned embassy / consulate regarding the name, attachment of wrong photograph, duration and type of visa (single / multiple entry) or passport number. We always use services of reputed courier companies for the purpose of transmission of passports to the embassies / consulates and to our clients in various cities. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage whether direct, indirect, incidental or consequential caused due to transmission delays or loss of passport or documents in the course of transmission of documents by us to the embassy or to you or in the course of transmission of documents by the embassy / consulate to us. We would however, make best attempts to trace your documents or assist you in obtaining alternative / certi ed copies of the lost documents.
If you are unable to travel on the tour originally booked by you because either you could not get your visa in time or due to an error of the part of the embassy / consulate, an incorrect visa is issued to you, you shall have the option to postpone your tour to any other future date or transfer your tour to any other tour and in such case the amendment fee for shall apply, in addition to cancellation charges.
Please note that if the rejection of visa is intimated by the embassy / consulate within the cancellation period speci ed in the section titled CANCELLATION OF BOOKING BY YOU then the cancellation charges as appearing in that section shall apply.
Please further note that for the purpose of ascertaining the applicable cancellation rates, the cancellation would be deemed to have been made on the date we receive intimation of visa rejection from the consulate / embassy. Should you choose to re-apply after visa rejection, then you shall do so at your own risk and cost. If the visa is rejected a second time, the applicable cancellation rates shall be based on the date of receipt of intimation of the rejection of second visa application and so the charges shall be much higher than the rates which would have applied on the rst rejection. Should we not receive any intimation from the consulate / embassy either accepting or rejecting a visa application before the departure date of your tour, the maximum cancellation charges shall apply.
It is made clear that the cancellation charges shall apply in addition to the retention of visa service charges. You expressly agree not to dispute the foregoing.
Please note that your health is entirely your risk and responsibility. Our tours are suitable for persons of reasonable tness. They may not suit persons who are medically in rm or who have special needs or requirements whether due to age, medical conditions or otherwise.
It shall be your duty to inform us in writing in case you have any medical condition that may affect your ability to fully enjoy our tour arrangements or where the interests of other tour participants may be adversely affected by such condition. Under such conditions we may decline to accept you or continue you in this tour.
We reserve the right (without obligation) to ask you to undergo medical tests and to provide written certi cation of your medical tness before departure or at any time during the tour and if you fail to undergo such tests or fail to provide such certi cates, we may decline to accept you or to continue you on the tour. Our actions in this regard may be guided not only by concerns for your health but also the convenience and health of the other tour participants.
However, it is not our obligation to check your medical condition and if you suffer any injury or aggravation on the tour or if you are unable to enjoy / complete the whole or any part of the tour due to your medical conditions, we shall not be liable to compensate you nor to refund any amount to you nor to pay your medical expenses.
In this regard, please note that service providers such as Airlines may decline to accept you on medical grounds. Please carefully read and understand the rules and regulations of the service providers, because we shall not be responsible for the consequences that you may suffer.
To some extent, your losses on account of cancellation or curtailment attributable to hospitalization as also your expenses of hospitalization may be covered by insurance Please see Insurance section below.
