Booking Terms and Conditions:
To make a booking, you must be at least eighteen years old. By proceeding with a booking, you acknowledge the obligation to provide accurate and comprehensive information. Furthermore, you confirm that you possess the requisite authority to accept and consent to the terms outlined in these booking conditions. This includes the responsibility for payment on behalf of all participants involved. When making a booking, please furnish us with the following details: the chosen tours or package tour programs, desired start date (including day, month, and year), total number of participants, full names of all participants, preferred room type, any additional requirements, flight details (airline name, flight number, arrival and departure dates and times), or comprehensive travel details if traveling by bus or other modes of transportation. Upon receiving this complete information and confirming your booking, we will proceed to secure hotel accommodations in each city as proposed. Simultaneously, we will send an email and an invoice indicating a non-refundable deposit amounting to 30% of the total cost. Upon the successful receipt of your payment confirmation, we will proceed to confirm your booking. Subsequently, a tour booking confirmation and other essential details will be shared with you via email. The outstanding balance can be settled upon your arrival, payable in Thai Baht or your chosen foreign currency. In the case of foreign currency payment, kindly reference the prevailing Thai Baht exchange rate at that time. Please note that if the deposit payment is not confirmed by the specified date as indicated in the invoice, we reserve the right to cancel the booking without prior notice. We are committed to facilitating a seamless booking process and ensuring a rewarding travel experience. If you have any questions or require further assistance, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Your satisfaction and enjoyment are of paramount importance to us.
Kindly take note that the availability of the proposed hotels will be subject to a limited time frame subsequent to the initial presentation of our proposal. It is important to understand that we cannot assure the availability of these hotels until we have successfully secured the booking subsequent to your acceptance of our proposal. In the event that any alterations transpire in this regard, we will promptly inform you about alternative options and seek your consent before proceeding to finalize the booking. Your satisfaction and comfort are our priorities, and we aim to ensure that any changes align with your preferences and are mutually agreed upon.
Choose Your Own Hotel:
While all the tour packages showcased on our website encompass accommodation, we understand that you may have preferences for different hotels. Should you desire to lodge at a hotel distinct from the ones featured in the tour package, kindly share with us the chosen tour package and specify the hotel name for each city, your preferred room type, the quantity of rooms required, and any additional specifications you may have. Upon receiving your particulars, we will proceed to assess the availability of the requested hotel rooms and ascertain the feasibility of accommodating any other specific requirements you might have. It is important to note that modifications such as changing hotels, adjusting the number of rooms, or introducing other requisites could lead to a revision in the tour package price. This adjustment would be contingent upon the pricing of the selected rooms and additional services at the chosen hotel. Rest assured, prior to confirming any hotel reservations or additional services, we will promptly communicate to you any changes in the tour package price resulting from your requests. This transparent approach ensures that you are well-informed and enables you to make an informed decision before finalizing any adjustments to your booking.
Tours Exclude Accommodation:
If your preference involves exclusively availing our tour services, encompassing transportation to various attractions, provision of knowledgeable tour guides, inclusive lunches, and admission fees to the attractions, and you opt not to utilize the accommodation provided in the tour package, you have the flexibility to secure your own lodging arrangements. This can be achieved in conjunction with any of the tour packages highlighted on our website. To proceed with this arrangement, kindly specify the name of the desired tour package and any additional requisites you may have. We will then promptly provide you with the pricing details for the chosen tour package, exclusive of accommodation charges. This approach ensures a seamless experience, granting you the freedom to handle your lodging arrangements while seamlessly enjoying the comprehensive tour services we offer.
We exclusively accept payments via bank transfer for your convenience. Once your tour booking is confirmed, we will promptly dispatch an email containing an invoice for an initial deposit, amounting to 30% of the total cost. This communication will also encompass detailed instructions concerning our bank account information. Upon completing the transfer, kindly furnish us with the pertinent transfer details via email. Once the transferred funds are successfully processed and reflected in our bank account, we will expediently dispatch a PDF-format receipt to your email address. The remaining balance can be settled in two ways: you may opt to make a prior bank transfer or choose to settle the balance in cash upon your arrival. For international bank transfers, it’s important to acknowledge that the bank will levy a transaction fee, which falls under your full responsibility. Additionally, please note that there might be a processing duration of approximately 2-3 business days for the funds to be credited to our bank account following the completion of the transfer. We remain dedicated to providing a streamlined payment process and ensuring your tour experience is seamless and enjoyable. Should you have any inquiries or require further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us. We anticipate the opportunity to contribute to your upcoming travel adventure.
Trip Cancellation / Change Travel Date / Deposit Refund Policy:
Please note: Your trip deposit is non-refundable, regardless of the reason for cancellation. Changing your travel dates may impact your hotel reservations. We will do our best to postpone your existing booking with the hotel, but if this is not possible and we need to cancel the reservation, we may not be able to get a refund. In this case, if a new booking is necessary, you will be responsible for any additional costs associated with it. Additionally, if the hotel room we originally booked is no longer available during your new travel dates, we will notify you before booking a room at another hotel. You will need to accept the alternate hotel and any associated additional costs. By proceeding with the booking, you acknowledge and accept the terms mentioned above. This includes the non-refundable nature of the deposit and the potential responsibility for additional costs in the event of date changes.
Refund policy for unused portion of package tours and itinerary change conditions:
Please note that we adhere to a policy of no full or partial refunds for unused or altered components of the package tour, including accommodation, meals, sightseeing tours, or other included services. This policy applies if a traveler decides not to utilize these services or modifies, cancels, or adjusts arrangements once the package tour has commenced. In cases where circumstances beyond our control necessitate changes to the itinerary or the inability to fulfill certain services after the commencement of the package tour, such as due to events like earthquakes, fires, floods, adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, or other force majeure events, we retain the right to implement reasonable modifications to the itinerary. Our utmost effort will be directed towards arranging suitable alternative services whenever feasible. It is important to acknowledge that any additional costs arising from such alterations will be your responsibility. Conversely, any resulting cost savings will be reimbursed to you.
