CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS FOR TOUR PACKAGES
For a confirmed booking any change after confirmation has a fee of INR 2000. If the change results in a cancellation of previously confirmed services, then the following cancellation penalties will apply. If cancellation is received in writing by Alar Travels at least 30 days prior to departure, a full refund will be made, minus a 2000 administrative charge plus the applicable supplier cancellation fees. For cancellations received within 30 days of departure a 50% cancellation penalty will be imposed. No refunds will be made 7 days prior to departure/Arrival. Some packages (Carnival, New Year’s Eve) are non-refundable. Different cancellation penalties may apply during holiday periods. Hotels, airlines or other suppliers may have stricter cancellation penalties than those described above. In those cases, the customer will pay the penalties the suppliers impose to us. We strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance to cover such cancellation fees. Group bookings have their own terms and conditions.
Holiday or New Year’s deposits are non-refundable. Some tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE after departure date and some fares are completely NON-REFUNDABLE. Special cancellation rules apply during Holiday Season. All cancellations must be in writing. Group reservations have their own Terms and Conditions, which will be sent to you at time of booking.
Any claims for refunds must be made IN WRITING within 30 days of scheduled departure. All negotiable vouchers and/or air tickets must accompany the claim. No refunds will be made for features included in our itineraries that travelers chose not to take part in. No refunds will be made for missing transfers or sightseeing tours due to changes or delays in airline schedules. Alar Travels will not refund any money for changes in travel arrangements made by the traveler after the departure date. Any service issue affecting the quality of the guest’s hotel stay must be addressed directly with the hotel’s management at the time the issue arises since refunds cannot be given for such inconveniences. We cannot control what properties charge at any time and therefore cannot guarantee our fares will always be lower. There are no refunds for perceived overcharges. No guarantees or warranties, express or implied, are made that the tour package will meet all of the traveler’s expectations. Airlines and hotels occasionally create overbooked conditions. These entities will compensate passengers affected by over bookings. Our agency cannot be held responsible for these situations and will not refund moneys for such situations since they are beyond our control. Passengers need to present and resolve their compensation issues to the hotel or airline directly at the time the situation arises.
