  • Applicable Cancellation charges:
     
    • For camps/ Ecotours where AIR TRAVEL is NOT part of the package, Rs.3000/- if the cancellation is made with more than 30 days (excluding the day of departure of ecotour) remaining for ecotour/camp departure date.

    • For camps/Ecotours where AIR TRAVEL is part of the package, Rs.3000/- if the cancellation is made with more than 30 days (excluding the day of departure of ecotour) remaining for ecotour/camp departure date. There will be additional cancellation charges as per concerned airline policies on account of reservations & ticket issuance.

      • Airline Policies: When you purchase air tickets from us (as part of a package), we act only as a sales agent for the applicable airline, and flights and fares are subject to the rules and policies of the airline. While we have contracts with some airlines that provide us with special fares, cancellation policies, and ticket issuance requirements, in general, air tickets that we furnish to you are subject to the same rules, policies, and fees that would apply if you purchased the air tickets yourself. Should you have an issue with the airline, we will do our best to help, but we are not responsible for the airline's policies or fees or the service provided by them. The passage contract in use by the airlines concerned, when air tickets are issued, constitutes the sole contract between the airline and passengers.

      • Reservations & Ticket Issuance: We reserve air tickets on your behalf after you book for Ecotour/Camps, and we book/block/issue tickets after we receive your confirmation of fare and advance payment. In many cases, we may need to issue air tickets sooner because quoted airfare may/may not have a sufficient validity period. For certain camps/Ecotours/Customisations involving flights, you may choose to pay for those flights and have us issue tickets sooner to guarantee the price. After air tickets are booked/blocked/issued, they are subject to airline policies and are generally unchangeable and nonrefundable, and any change affecting your flights usually either requires the purchase of new air tickets or are subject to change fees.
