Eligibility: Below 12 years old on the date of departure from Singapore. Child fare is based on sharing a twin/double room with two adults without an extra bed for the child. If extra bed is required for the child, please arrange with the Company’s sales representative who will offer appropriate advice, including price of surcharges or supplements, if any. A surcharge will be imposed for a child occupying a room with only one adult.
Accommodation is as specified in the tour brochure and/or the booking form. Unless specifically mentioned, all rooms will be on ‘run-of-house’ basis. Accommodation for adults is based on twin or double, or triple sharing (if requested by client). In the event that accommodation in the selected hotel is not available, every effort will be made to acquire accommodation in another hotel of a similar standard. For farm-stay or camping tours, sharing of bathroom facilities may be necessary. Clients would be advised accordingly at the time of booking. When booking triple-share rooms, please note that the third bed may be a ‘roll-away’ bed. Triple sharing for all tours shall be subject to request and availability, as some hotels do not have facilities for triple share rooms.
There will be a single-supplement surcharge for a single room request; amount as indicated in the tour itinerary. The Company will confirm such request at least 14 days prior to tour departure.
It is the passengers’ responsibility to ensure that they have valid passport with the minimum 6 months validity from the date of departure. If required, exit permits (for travel out of Singapore) should also be valid. Passengers must also have the necessary visas, vaccinations, health certificates and all necessary travel documents as required by the various government authorities of the countries to be visited, e.g. social visit pass, work permit, etc.
Different embassies/consulates require varying lengths of time to process visa applications. Our staff may be able to offer advice on this matter. We render assistance in making visa applications, wherever possible. This service is subject to (auxiliary) charges. The Company cannot, however, guarantee the approval of client’s visa application. If, for any reason, application for visa is rejected, a full refund of all monies paid (excluding visa application fees paid to the respective embassies and related service charges) will be made if the result of the rejection is made known to the Company at least 14 days prior to tour departure. If less than 14 days notice is given, the relevant cancellation charges as stated will apply.

The ticket issued may be a special ticket restricted to the specified airline only. It is usually non-negotiable, non-endorsable, non-reissuable, non-refundable and not re-routable. Any alteration of the routing or change of date by the passenger is solely at passenger’s own risk. Request for a change in the returning flight is subject to the airline’s conditions, ticket validity, additional charges, seat availability, etc. Any additional charge imposed by the airline will be borne by the passenger. No extension or deviation will be permitted for tours operated on chartered flights.
Extension of stay or deviation may be permitted at the end of tour, subject to validity and restriction of air ticket, seat confirmation and availability of hotel. Such request is to be made prior to commencement of the tour and with sufficient notice. When extension of stay or deviation cannot be confirmed 14 days prior to the group’s departure date, passenger is deemed to be taking the original tour schedule. All extra costs incurred to process the extension, e.g. administration fees, will be borne by the passenger. The extension of stay or deviation will be at passenger’s own expense and transfers to and from airport will not be provided.
The Company makes reasonable effort to avoid changes in itinerary. However airline schedules and local conditions may affect routings and other related matters. Should this occur, the Company will endeavour to substitute a suitable arrangement of similar value. Any change, where possible, will be announced prior to departure. The Company reserves the right to make minor changes at any time without compensation. But if alterations or changes (prior to tour departure) are major or significant, clients have a choice of the following:
a. Purchase another available holiday from the Company at the appropriate price, or
b. Cancel the booking with a full refund of tour fare paid
No compensation will be made as a result of force majeure or unforeseen circumstances beyond human control, e.g. war, civil strike, earthquake, floods, etc.
All matters relating to baggage allowance, size and excess baggage charges are determined by airlines. Each passenger on economy class is allowed baggage not exceeding 20 kilograms. Only one piece of hand luggage is allowed. Excess baggage must be paid locally by passenger. The Company assumes no responsibility for any loss or damage to baggage or belongings whilst they are in the custody of airlines, other transportation companies, accommodation suppliers or the passenger. The Company is not responsible for hand luggage. However, if passenger’s checked-in luggage is lost or damaged through wilful negligence of the Company’s staff, the maximum liability per baggage will be S$200. Such claim should not be duplicated against any other parties, e.g. travel insurance companies, hotels, airlines, etc.
Meals are as indicated in the tour itinerary and booking form. Meals on board are served by airlines. If such meals are not served by airlines, due to whatever reasons, there shall be no refund or replacement by the Company.
