terms & conditions
If a booking is coming from one of our existing overseas agents, generally no advance payment is requested at the time of making the booking unless when some hotels do not agree to hold the booking without having token non-refundable advance. In all such cases agents are intimated officially about all such advance payment requirement.
In case of group booking (with more than 10 pax), rooming list is required by all the hotels usually at least 60 days in advance.
In all other cases, for the services contracted, advance payment should be made to hold the booking on confirmed basis and the balance amount (if any) needs to be paid at least 45 days before the commencement of your trip. We hold the right to decide upon the amount to be paid as an advance payment, based on the nature of services and the time left for the commencement of the services.

No Show / Early Departure / Cancellation Policy

During "Peak-Season," which is defined by the density of tourist inflow in each region, and may vary from place to place and hotel to hotel, any particular hotel may implement a different cancellation policy. The travel agent is bound to follow the hotel specific cancellation policy and in case of variation from the above stated policy, the excess in cancellation charges will be borne by the client and not the travel agent. For example hotel chains like Taj Safaris/& Beyond, Diphlu River Lodge, Kaziranga need 25% non refundable/non adjustable advance payment at the time of making the reservation and balance 75% payment at least 45 days prior to travel date. In case of cancellation, there will be no refund. Similarly many hotels during Pushkar period which normally falls in late October-November of every year (specially Palace Hotels of Rajasthan owned/managed by Taj Hotels Resorts & Palaces and Vilas properties, a brand owned by Oberoi Hotels) and most of the hotels during peak period (Dec 20-Jan 10) specially in Goa & Kerala confirm the booking with a clause of 100% non refundable advance payment, in all such cases the respective hotels clause will be over and above our terms and conditioned mentioned above.
In case you cancel the trip after commencement due to law & order situation or any other reason where company understands that tour in given circumstances can not be continued, refund would be restricted to a limited amount that too would depend on the amount that we would be able to recover from the hoteliers we patronize. For unused hotel accommodation, chartered transportation and missed meals etc. we do not take any guarantee to refund.
Modifications/Cancellations sent directly to the hotel will not be honored.
In regard to refund of unused / unutilized services (which are paid for and cancelled in advance) the refund amount would be worked out on the basis of cancellation policy as described above and the money would be accordingly refunded to the person who has made the payment to us. Any refund against a payment received through a Credit Card, will be made on the same credit card only. Please note that the refund process may take 2to 8 weeks due to banking procedures.
No deductions will be made for the refunds (except the transaction charges), which are made due to unavailability of services. If the services requested are unavailable during the requested period, we will offer similar alternatives well before the commencement of the services and if the client does not find the alternatives acceptable, the advance will be refunded. However, once the alternative service is accepted by the client, cancellation of the same will be subject to the above stated cancellation policy.
