1 Reservation, Deposit and Full Payment
To make a reservation, you need to place a deposit with us for yourself and each person accompanying you on the Package Tour. This deposit will form part of your final payment. The minimum deposit is specified in the table below. You will be notified should a higher deposit be required for your specific booking.
Type of Package Tour
Minimum deposit per traveller
Payment of the deposit and confirmation of the reservation does not constitute confirmation of the Package Tour. All Package Tours are subject to a minimum group size (to be determined by us, in our absolute discretion) before the Package Tour is confirmed. If the minimum group size is not achieved at least 14 days before the scheduled departure date for a Package Tour, we shall be entitled to cancel all reservations for the Package Tour in accordance with clause 3 below.
We will notify you as soon as possible once your Package Tour has been confirmed. Unless otherwise agreed or notified by us, following confirmation of your Package Tour, you must make full payment for your Package Tour at least 45 days before the designated departure date. If you fail to make full payment by the stipulated deadline, we shall be entitled to treat your reservation as cancelled and to impose a cancellation fee, in accordance with clause 2 below, and to apply the deposit toward settlement of the cancellation fee, with any balance owing to be payable within 7 days, without any recourse by you against us.
2 Cancellation by Customer
Unless otherwise stated in the invoice, you may cancel your reservation, in writing to email@example.com, at any time before the designated departure date, subject to payment of a cancellation fee to us, to be computed based on the table below. In such event, you shall additionally be responsible for any non-refundable airport taxes and miscellaneous surcharges imposed by the relevant airline(s). Should there be a refund of airport taxes or miscellaneous surcharges by the airline(s), we shall be entitled to charge an administrative fee of S$50, to be deducted from the refunded amount, for processing the refund.
Please note that any of the following changes made, less than 3 months from the departure date, is considered a cancellation and a cancellation fee will apply:
No. of days between departure and receipt of cancellation notice

50% of full Package price

The above cancellation fees apply if the air-tickets are not issued. If the air-tickets are issued, the value of the air-tickets will be added onto the cancellation fees. The Company reserves the right to issue air-tickets without prior notice. If the deposit amount is insufficient to cover the cancellation fee, the Customer must pay for the difference. Any waiver or reduction of cancellation charges on goodwill, (such as death, serious illnesses, etc) is at the discretion of Company and subject to the conditions imposed by the major suppliers (such as hotels, airlines, etc). Supporting documents for the reason of cancellation is required. Any refunds to be made will only be processed minimum 2 months upon request for cancellation.
3 Cancellation by Company
Please note that the Company is merely acting as an intermediary to engage the services of third party service providers in respect of your Package Tour. Even after full payment for a Package Tour has been made, all Package Tour arrangements are still subject to final confirmation by the relevant third-party service provider(s). We shall endeavour to notify you, at least 14 days before the scheduled departure date, if, due to any unforeseen circumstance(s), any Package Tour arrangement cannot be finalised, needs to be changed by us or your reservation has to be cancelled. In such case, we may, but shall not be obliged to, recommend alternative Package Tours to either the same or another destination. Please note that additional charges may apply for such alternative Package Tours and you will be advised accordingly of all such charges before having to make any election. If no alternatives are offered or should you decide not to accept any alternative offered, we will fully refund you in the form of travel credit for the Package Tour.

This clause shall not apply if the losses, costs, damages, expenses (including due to any delay), inconvenience, personal injury, inconvenience, or additional payments referred to in the said Clause are deemed, in our sole and absolute discretion, to have been caused by our gross negligence.
5 Refund Policy on Unused Portion of Package Tour
No refund, either in full or in part, will be made with respect to all arrangements for accommodation, meals, sightseeing tours or other services which are included in the Package Tour fare but not utilised by the traveller, or where the traveller amends, cancels or otherwise varies such arrangement after commencement of the Package Tour. If, after a Package Tour has departed, any service(s) in the itinerary cannot be fulfilled or any change(s) to the itinerary are necessitated for any reason(s) beyond our control, especially during peak seasons or upon the occurrence of a force majeure event, such as an act of God, earthquake, fire, tsunami or other natural disasters, weather conditions, war, civil unrest or terrorist attacks, government or legislative actions, strikes and labour unrest, diseases or pandemics, compulsory quarantines, or other similar event(s) (“Force Majeure Event”), we reserve the right to make reasonable changes to the itinerary, but shall endeavour where possible to arrange for the provision of a comparable alternative service.

6 Refund Payment Mode
For payments made in cash or via NETS, cheque or bank transfer, refunds will be made by way of cheque or bank transfer and will generally be processed within 2 to 4 weeks from the date of cancellation. For credit card payments, refunds will be made via the respective credit card company and will generally be processed within 4 to 6 weeks from the date of cancellation. The refund process may take longer during peak seasons, due to the increase in transaction volume.
7 Travel Documents and Travel Insurance
Passport and Other Travel Documents
Subject to this clause, each traveller is solely responsible for ensuring that his or her passport or other travel document is valid for at least 6 months from the expected date of departure from the last point of departure in the itinerary and that he or she has all necessary visas, permits, passes, licenses, vaccinations, health certificates and/or other documents or approvals as may be required by the applicable governmental authorities of the destination country(ies) in the Package Tour. If a reservation has to be cancelled because the traveller is unable to obtain a visa or other travel document required, the relevant cancellation fee under clause 2 above will apply. Each traveller is also solely responsible for ensuring that his or her name as provided to the Company and reflected in the Pax Statement tallies with the name in his or her passport or travel document. If any amendment to such name is required, all applicable fees and charges shall be borne by the traveller.
We may, from time to time, assist a traveller to submit a visa application for a fee, but do not guarantee the outcome or approval of any such application. Different embassies or consulates require varying lengths of time to process visa applications and, accordingly, any traveller seeking our assistance to apply for a visa must check with us as soon as possible on the applicable visa requirements.
All travellers are strongly encouraged to obtain a comprehensive travel insurance policy to protect against unforeseen circumstances, such as baggage loss, flight delays, travel agent insolvency and medical emergencies. We shall not be responsible, under any circumstances, for any such matters. Uninsured travelers are required to sign an indemnity form provided by us.
