5 Cancellation or amendment by us (The Company)
We always try to avoid any changes to your booking. However, this may become necessary, as we cannot foresee changes many months in advance when we plan our holidays. Flight timings shown in the brochures or leaflets are for guidance only and may change. The confirmed final timings will be shown on your flight tickets and should be checked when you receive them. If minor changes other than flight timings happen before your departure we will tell you before you leave. On inclusive holidays occasionally it may be necessary to make a more major change. These can be either changing your resort or accommodation. If this is the case, we will always offer you an alternative holiday of equivalent or superior quality and we will pay you compensation according to the table below. You may accept the change and receive compensation as shown on the table below or you can cancel your holiday and receive full refund. If we have to change your holiday arrangements on your departure date, after you depart or when you are in the resort we will try to place you in a similar or higher standard accommodation in the same or similar resort and pay you compensation as below. You have no right to cancel your holiday after you depart or while in the resort if we offer you a suitable alternative.

We reserve the right to substitute alternative carriers and Aircraft.

6 Our responsibility
We arrange contracts for accommodation and other local services with suppliers who in our belief are reputable companies, run safe and efficient businesses. We accept responsibility and pay compensation if our suppliers fail to provide the services they agreed to provide if these services formed part of the package sold to you when booked. We will accept liability for claims for personal injury arising as a result of our staff or suppliers being negligent while in the course of their employment or contract. We cannot accept liability in such cases;
a. If you or any member of your party is at fault.
b. If the failure is the fault of someone else not connected with providing services which make up the holiday we have confirmed to you.
c. Any unusual or unexpected circumstances beyond our control which we could not avoid even if we had taken reasonable care. 
d. Any event which neither we nor our suppliers could not help, expect or prevent.

We will offer all the help we can, if you suffer any difficulty while you are on holiday. If you suffer illness, personal injury or death during your holiday, through no fault of your own arising out of an activity which may not be part of your holiday arrangement with us, we will help sorting out a claim you may have which may include translation services, communicating with local authorities, recommending foreign lawyers if this is appropriate. Our costs in respect of the above will not exceed 40000 in total. We cannot however accept liability for any payment unless you have told us within 60 days of the incident that you want to make a claim and we have given our written permission. We may ask you to pay back any amount we paid, if your claim is successful or you have suitable legal indemnity insurance.

If our suppliers can exclude or limit their liability under any international convention, we will rely on the relevant exclusions or limitations. Any compensation we pay for claims against us, other than personal injuries, will not be more than three times the cost of your holiday.

7 Air and sea carriers
The liabilities of Air and Sea carriers are generally governed by the Warsaw convention, Hague protocol or Athens Convention. We have to rely on the terms and limitations contained in these conventions. Air and Sea carriers produce conditions of carriage which become part of your booking conditions both with us and the relevant carrier. Your booking is taken accordingly. You can obtain a copy from us, your agent or the carrier.

8 Brochure accuracy
In our printed brochures, leaflets or on the website the resort and accommodation descriptions are being checked before printing. Planning our holidays have to be done many months in advance and may not reflect the true situation at the time you are on holiday. Hoteliers and suppliers may withdraw or change a facility temporarily or otherwise, for local reasons, some of the out-door facilities may not be open early or late in the season or in the winter or some in-door facilities may be kept closed in summer. Some advertised amenities including sports facilities may carry a local charge. Some facilities may be curtailed as some may be improved. These are beyond our control. When we are told of any significant changes we will let you know before you leave.

9 Travel Insurance
It is a condition of the booking that you take the travel insurance we recommend or arrange insurance yourself, offering comparable or better cover. Insurance premium will be automatically added to your final invoice unless details of your insurers are given to us.

Should you provide your own insurance then you must advise us of the details of your alternative policy including the policy number. The policy must include medical cover and repatriation. Clients in breech of this condition will be deemed to have indemnified the company for any consequential loss

10 Travel Documents
It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that passports, visas, vaccination certificates or other necessary travel documents are valid for the entire journey. If we or the carrier are fined as a result of you holding incorrect documents you may be asked to pay this amount.

11 Baggage
Liability for baggage while in the hands of air or sea carriers is governed by international conventions. We have to rely on the limitations of these conventions. Any claims of missing or damaged baggage should be done following the rules and conditions of carriage. These are usually at the back of your flight tickets or provided by the airline in another form. We accept responsibility if your baggage is lost or damaged while it was under our control and our negligence can be proved. We do not accept liability for high value items. We will pay up to a maximum of 15000. Please insure your valuable items separately.

12 Behaviour
We can end your holiday if you or any member of your party behaves or proves likely to behave in a manner to cause danger, damage or distress to other customers, employees, accommodation or any one else. If your holiday is ended for this reason we are not liable to complete your holiday arrangements, make any refunds or compensation or any other costs you have to pay or fines imposed by the authorities of the country you are visiting. We cannot accept liability for the behaviour of others in your accommodation or flight, or if you are not allowed to use certain local facilities due to unsuitable behaviour.

13 Problems Abroad
For all the inclusive holidays taken with our company we want to attend any problems promptly and locally when they happen, so your holiday is not spoilt. While you are on holiday on an inclusive tour, you must report any problems you have immediately to our local representatives who will try to solve most of the problems on the spot, and prevent your holiday being spoilt. Unless there is a valid reason why you failed to report your complaint in the resort, we will not consider ourselves to be liable for those complaints.

If your problem cannot be sorted out by our visiting representative you should record it on a holiday report form, which will be given priority attention in our local office. If we still cannot solve the matter to your satisfaction when you return you should write to our Head office in Mumbai within 28 days of returning home. We cannot accept liability, for claims not raised or reported while on holiday, unless there was a valid reason not to do so.

14 Jurisdiction
This contract is subject and should be interpreted under the Indian Courts.
