The sequence of any itinerary for a Package Tour may be subject to change from time to time, at our discretion. Where possible, we will inform you of any such change at least 2 weeks prior to departure.
Composition of Tour Groups
We reserve the right to vary the composition of any tour group and/or to merge different tour groups at any time for any Package Tour, provided always that this shall not affect the persons travelling in your own travel group.
Accommodation at nominated hotels (or hotels of a similar standard) is as specified in the Package Tour brochure/itinerary/booking form. Accommodation is generally available on either a single, twin, double-share or triple-share basis. For certain types of accommodation, such as farms and ski resorts, the sharing of bathroom facilities may be necessary. For triple-share rooms, the third bed may be a “roll-away” bed. Single room occupancy is usually at additional cost. During events, accommodation may not be in the city mentioned and may be replaced with an alternative to be made known at least 2 weeks prior to departure.
Baggage Handling/Lost or Damaged Baggage
Travellers will be allowed check-in and hand-carry luggage according to the respective airlines’ regulations. Excess baggage must be paid locally by the travellers. We will not be responsible for the loss, damage or theft of any item(s) belonging to a traveller throughout the duration of the Package Tour.
Meals, including meals on-board flights, are as indicated in the Package Tour brochure/itinerary/ booking form. No refunds or replacements will be provided if the on-board meals are not served for any reason.
We will not be responsible for any mileage accrual for
any frequent flyer membership programme(s).
Travelling With Minors
Travellers under 18 years of age (as at the scheduled departure date) must be accompanied by an adult. If any person under 18 years old is travelling with an adult other than his or her parent or official guardian, his or her parent or official guardian is required to fill up an “Unaccompanied Minor and Handling Assistance Waiver” form. It is also the traveller’s sole responsibility to ensure that the requirements of any relevant airline and/or regulatory authority relating to minors are complied with.
It is the responsibility of travellers who are pregnant to ensure that they have a doctor’s certification that they are fit for travel. Notwithstanding any such doctor’s certificate, third party providers, such as airlines or cruise companies, have the sole discretion to disallow a pregnant traveller to board the relevant flight or cruise or to undertake certain activities and no refund shall be payable in such event.
It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to inform the Company of any special request that a traveller may have, such as special dietary requirements, special seating arrangements, requests for adjoining rooms, requests for a smoking room, etc. at the time of reservation. All requests are subject to availability and confirmation, and we will not be responsible if any such request is not or cannot be met for any reason.
Travellers With Special Needs
We will use reasonable endeavours, but shall not be obliged, to accommodate the special needs of disabled travellers and shall not be responsible if we are unable to effect any requested arrangements. We shall also not be responsible for any denial of services by air carriers, hotels, restaurants or other third party service providers. We cannot provide individual assistance to any traveller for walking, dining, getting on or off motor coaches, cruise ships and other vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified and physically able-bodied companion must accompany travellers who need such assistance and must assume full responsibility for their well-being. We are not responsible for any missed activities due to a traveller’s inability to participate in such activities.
We regret we must reserve the right to refuse to allow an individual to travel if he or she, in our reasonable opinion, is physically or mentally unfit to travel, or will or may require care beyond that which any travelling companion or we can generally provide in connection with the Package Tour, and no refund shall be payable in such event.
