It is your responsibility to go through the contents of Price Grid carefully and understand the inclusions and exclusions of the tour cost. For any pre created tour or quote, all services will be provided to you as per those specified / confirmed and paid for as per the Invoices and Service Vouchers. If you avail any service such as porterage, room service, laundry, excess baggage charge, a la carte meals, alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, mineral water, paid toilets etc. or anything that is not specifically shown as included in the Tour Cost, then the payment for the same will have to be cleared by you.
We shall in no circumstances whatsoever be liable / responsible to you or any person travelling with you, for loss of baggage by the airline, failure to provide meal of your choice by the airline, denied boarding or down-gradation due to overbooking or any other reason, failure on the part of the airline to accommodate you despite having confirmed tickets, quality or quantity of meals offered by the airlines, flight delays or rescheduling, flight cancellation, changes of flight schedule or routing, change of airline mentioned at the time of booking etc. In these circumstances, we will not be liable / responsible for the injury, loss, cost or inconvenience suffered by you but you will be free to pursue your remedies against the concerned airline.
Airlines have restrictions on the kind of baggage, number and weight of baggage that you can carry and you will need to carefully read and understand the rules and regulations of the airline, in this regard. Hence you must refer to the concerned airline's luggage rules and regulations. It is suggested that you carry one trolley bag and one hand bag for better mobility. Typically, weight restrictions on baggage for Economy Class is 20 Kg, for Business Class 30 kg and for First Class is 40 kg and 1 hand bag (cabin luggage) having dimensions of 115 linear cms. and not exceeding 7 kg per person except for flights to USA and Canada, where the passengers are permitted to carry 2 pieces of checked-in baggage and 1 hand bag. In the case of low cost carriers that are used by the Company during the tour, the permitted baggage allowance may be lower than what is mentioned above. Baggage is not included for internal flights in USA. One needs to pay for every piece of baggage checked in. The charges vary from USD 25 to USD 35 per bag. Please check with your sales staff for correct details. Please note that every airline has a different set of rules and regulations regarding the weight restrictions and furthermore, airlines keep changing the rules quite frequently. Hence, you are requested to please check the updated baggage rules of the individual airlines, with whom the ticket is booked. We are not liable / responsible in any manner if you are unable to carry any baggage or if you have to pay any extra charges due to restrictions imposed by the airline. You shall be liable / responsible to pay all such charges directly to the airline. Also, we are not liable / responsible for any loss or damage to baggage while it is in the custody of the airline. Please be careful to ensure that cameras, binoculars, musical instruments, mobile phones, credit / debit cards, ornaments, traveler's cheques, currency notes, travel documents should never be left unattended in the hotel, restaurant, aircraft, coach or any other mode of transportation, at the place of amusement / sightseeing and / or at the railway station. Similarly the aforesaid items should not be kept in the checked-in baggage. If you misplace or lose any moveable property we will not be in any way responsible and / or liable. We may not be in a position to assist and / or lodge a complaint with the authorities.
The Company is not liable / responsible for any additional expenses or loss that may arise from government regulation or order affecting the aircraft, strikes and labour disputes causing cessation, slowdown or interruption of work, meteorological conditions, security risks, or any other causes that are beyond the Company's control but which may affect concerned airline's ability to operate flights on schedule. The Company will not reimburse any additional expenses incurred by you as a result of such events or delays. The Company will not refund any unused portion of air tickets purchased in the event of such delays or due to any reasons beyond its direct control.
Please note that porterage is not included in the tour price. It is often difficult to get porters to assist as hotels may or may not provide this service and it is therefore advisable to use bags with wheels. Coaches have limited space for luggage and hence we permit only one suitcase and one handbag per person in the coach. The suitcase should be of a size of 158 cms. (width + length + height) preferably with wheels for sake of convenience.
It is advisable that the tour participants carry their valuables on their person at all times. If Safe Deposit Lockers are available, the tour participants should avail the facility at their own risks and liability. This facility may be additionally charged by the hotel, which will have to be directly paid by the Client to the hotel. If the Safe Deposit facility is not available, the tour participants must take all necessary precautions in protecting their valuables as the Company / Service Providers / Company's representatives shall not be liable / responsible for any loss of valuables or for making good such loss.
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 liable / 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 / liable for any cancellation, curtailment or extension 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.
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 airlines 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 liability / responsibility to take all appropriate actions to file complaints with the concerned authorities, including police, airline office etc.
Tipping is customary (unless otherwise stated in the Brochure; price grid) in all parts of the world for services rendered (e.g. porters, coach drivers, guides etc). Unless otherwise communicated, the tip amount is 2 Euro per person per day in Europe for the coach driver, 2 Euro per person per city per guide in Europe and 2 Euro per suitcase per day for a porter in Europe. Everywhere else it is 2 to 4 USD instead of 2 Euros. Please check the Price Grid to ascertain whether such tips are included within the tour costs or are required to be paid by you separately. Your Sales advisor will guide you in this regard.
This is a measure to ensure your safety and time discipline. Clients will have to strictly adhere to the prescribed timetable for the day. Please adhere to time discipline so that scheduled sightseeing is not missed due to your actions. In case any sightseeing or services are missed due to your default the same will be non-refundable.

Generally hotels charge a higher rate during major events / conventions and trade fairs and where space availability is difficult; there is a possibility of your hotel being located further away. The hotels in the city have mostly twin bedded rooms whereas Holiday Resort accommodation tends to have holiday homes, villas with double bedroom configuration. In certain cities single rooms are much smaller than the twin room.
