CANCELLATION

As the services to be provided to the tour participants are booked several months in advance, cancellation of such services earmarked for a particular departure results in the Company losing money depending upon the time of cancellation to the Supplier. Therefore any cancellation of tour / services booked by a tour participant will attract cancellation charges as specified by the company. If the tour participant books a third party product or service, the Terms and Conditions and cancellation policy of such third party would be applicable in addition to the Company's Terms and Conditions. Any cancellation of tour / services has to be in writing clearly stating the reasons for cancellation. You expressly agree to the foregoing terms.

PRIVACY OF INFORMATION

We try to maintain the privacy of the personal information provided by you. However, it would be necessary for us to share this information with Consulates, Embassies, Airlines, Hotels and other service providers who would be providing you service during the tour. We would also be constrained to disclose such information if we receive an order of the court, a requisition from any government or statutory authority, subpoena, or under any law, rules or regulations, such disclosure becomes necessary.

The company reserves the right to publish photographs of clients taken during the tour.

GRIEVANCE

If the Client, has any grievance in respect of any services provided by any of the Independent Contractors, the Client shall immediately inform the Company and the Independent Contractor, so that the Company can take up the matter with the Independent Contractor and the Company has the chance to rectify the problems then and there, if the grievance is genuine. If you fail to do this, any right to compensation or refund which you may have, will be extinguished or reduced.

In case of Client/s grievance concerning services of any independent contractor should be communicated on the emergency telephone number given to you immediately, followed by written communication mailed to the Registered Office of the company at Turner Morrison Building, 16 Bank Street, Fort, Mumbai - 400 001 / via facsimile no. 91 22 2270 91 61 or emailed at customerservice@coxandkings.com as immediately as possible and a copy thereof should be marked to the independent contractor, whereby the Company has the chance to rectify any problems, if the grievance is genuine. Failure to do so will result in the client losing any right as to compensation or refund.

Any complaint by the Client must be notified to the Company in writing within 28 days of the end of the Tour. No claim notified to the Company outside this period will be entertained and the Company shall incur no liability whatsoever in respect thereof.

FORFEITURE OF DEPOSITS

The Company shall be within its rights to forfeit the non- refundable interest free deposit paid by the client to the company along with the prescribed booking form duly completed for the tour booked by the client. In the event the client cancels the booking or on failure on the part of the Client to adhere to the tour payment schedule as informed in the documentation check list or in the event the visa of any country is not granted or is unable to travel on the tour booked by the client due to any reason whatsoever, including medical ground or sickness, the non refundable interest free deposits shall stand forfeited, and the scale of cancellation set out in the "How To Book" section of the brochure shall be applicable and binding. The Client expressly agrees to the foregoing terms and conditions.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS AND CLEARANCES

It shall be solely the Clients' responsibility to hold valid and genuine travel documents and statutory clearances, to be able to travel on the Holiday, such as passports, visas, confirmed air-tickets, insurance and medical insurance certificates and other statutory certificates including immigration clearance etc. In any case, your Passport must be valid for at least six months subsequent to the scheduled date of return of the Holiday. Please note that guest travelling to Malaysia should have a valid passport for at least nine months subsequent to the scheduled date of return of the holiday.

It is the responsibility of the Clients to furnish all documents required by the Company for application of visa etc. We are mere facilitators for providing visa guidance services. In the event the application for the visa made by any Client or the Company on behalf of the Client is rejected by the concerned Embassy or Authorities due to inadequate documents furnished by the applicant or due to any other reason whatsoever, the Company shall not be liable or responsible for the same. The visa fee includes the actual visa charge, cost of processing fees, professional charges, and overheads. All cost, charges in respect of the said application for the visa shall be borne by the Client and the non-refundable deposit paid by the client shall be forfeited and no claim whatsoever shall be made for the same. UK and USA visa will have to be obtained by the Client directly, however the Company can only assist in preparing and submitting the visa application based on documents provided by clients. Certain consulates / embassies may call the clients for personal interviews and / or biometrics,

As granting or rejecting visas and immigration clearance is the sole prerogative of the concerned sovereign governments and the Company is only a facilitator, the Operator shall neither be responsible in case of non-granting of such documents nor liable for any delay, denial or other related act / omission or for any loss, expense, damage or cost resulting there from. The position in respect of cancellation of the tour by the Client due to non-availability of travel documents would not change only by virtue of the Client having applied for such documents through the Operator. Even if the visas are rejected, the stipulated fees of the Operator shall be payable by the Client. There will be no refund, if the Client, or any member of his party, is unable to travel due to the said reasons. In fact, many a time, due to such cancellations, the company suffers losses because, sometimes, the cancellation is done at a time of holiday rush like Olympics etc. and the third party suppliers such as hotels, airlines and cruises levy 100% cancellation charges. In such cases, cancellation charges as applicable by the company will apply and the decision of the company will be final and binding upon you. Under the circumstances, you agree not to proceed legally against us unless there is a manifest error from our end.

The Company would not be responsible in any manner whatsoever for any clerical error done by the concerned Embassy / Consulate regarding 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 would not be responsible for any loss or damage whether direct, incidental or consequential caused due to transmission delays or loss of passport. The documents forwarded by you for visa purpose are sent by us to the concerned Embassy / Consulate by third parties and hence we would not be liable for loss of your documents. We would however, make best attempts to trace your documents or assist you in obtaining alternative / certified copies of the lost documents.

In the event that a client is unable to travel on the Holiday date originally booked by him / her, due to rejection of visas by the concerned Embassy, the said client shall have the option to postpone his / her holiday to any other future date or choose any other holiday destination subject to cancellation charges of the previous holiday. However, if the client books and pays within the cancellation period and is unable to travel due to any reason whatsoever including non-availability of visas or any travel documents, the cancellation policy will apply.

In case the Client decides to make any change in the rooming while on the tour then they shall be bound to pay additional amount charged to them by the concerned Hotel directly to the Hotel.

HOTELS

Keeping in mind the itinerary, we take great care to select the locations of hotels, which are chosen both for their comfort and value for money. Due to conventions and trade fairs, Olympics etc in the cities the hotels may be blocked out more than 2 years in advance. In view of this, you may have to stay in hotels further away from the cities and itineraries may have to be amended / altered. All hotels are twin bedded (in Europe) and in keeping with European standards are comparatively small. Single rooms are much smaller than twin-bedded rooms. A double room has a queen-size bed and a twin room has two separate beds. Requests for double rooms will be subject to availability and in cases when a double is not available, we will provide you with a twin room.

We recommend a maximum of only three persons in one room. Triple rooms are usually no larger then twin rooms and the third bed is often a rollaway bed or cot placed in a twin room.

CURRENCY AND TRAVELLERS CHEQUES

We suggest you take your holiday spending money partly in currency, partly in travelers cheques or Travel Currency Card. Travellers cheques are a safe way to carry money as they are easily encashed for a small service fee and can be replaced if they are stolen or lost, provided you have the lost travellers cheque numbers and the counterfoil subject to American Express being satisfied with the genuineness of the claim. Alternatively, you can take a Travel Currency Card, which is by far the safest way to carry money and make payments.

We, however, reserve the right to change the meal arrangement, where circumstances compel us to do so. Unlike an airline, we cannot process for a special meal, diet meal etc. nor can we guarantee a special diet for customers if applicable.

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. Tour Participants are requested to strictly follow the time schedule given at all times including the departure time from the hotel, sightseeing places, etc.

TIPPING

Tipping is customary (unless otherwise stated in the brochure) in all parts of the world for services rendered (e.g. porters, coach drivers, guides etc). Your Sales advisor will guide you in this regard.

SAFE DEPOSIT LOCKERS

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.

Currently, the airline restriction is 20 kgs for economy class on flights to all destinations except U.S. and Canada where a person may carry 2 pieces of checked in baggage and one hand bag.
