Terms & Conditions

Reservation

Please kindly note that your travel dates may be released if you did not fill out the reservation form and provide valid passport details to us within 30 days of your purchase or enquiry (15 days if you travel within 60-90 days; 7 days if you travel within 60 days). Unfortunately, we are unable to proceed with your booking until this information is provided. Any changes to your reservation including extensions, visa preferences and date changes must be requested before payment is made; otherwise, a service fee may apply. If the name on your reservation form does not match that on your passport, please inform us immediately and prior to payment. Failure to do so will incur a name change penalty or flight boarding may be denied by the airline. If this occurs, a refund will not be granted.

 

Payment

Payment is required by credit card, bank transfer and PayPal within 7 days of receiving your invoice. If your preferred departure date is within 60 days, payment is required within 3 working days of receiving your invoice. If payment is not received within the time frame outlined, your air ticket will not be purchased and your seat on the tour may be forfeited. If payment is not received on time and your tour seat is no longer available, we will offer you an alternative departure date. We cannot confirm your tour until after full payment is received and your air ticket has been purchased.

 

Cancellations

If you wish to cancel your tour a cancellation notice via letter, email or fax must be received by SNA Tours. If you purchase the tour via a merchant, the cancellation will be subject to its terms and conditions. Cancellations made after the invoice has been issued and paid will result in a service fee of $350/person and additional penalties may apply. We are unable to refund any amount if a cancellation is made after the air ticket has been purchased.

 

Traveller substitutions are considered cancellations and a refund will not be granted if the air ticket has been secured. Cancellation penalties charged by airlines or transport companies will be applied if the flight or train/transport tickets have been issued, in addition to the cancellation fees charged by SNA Tours.

 

After the trip has commenced, we are unable to refund any amount for unused services due to your early departure, late arrival or missed days on tour. For direct booking with SNA Tours, the deposit is fully refundable within 15 days of your reservation start date. However, Money Back Guarantee within 15 days of your reservation start date will not apply if your travel date is within 90 days from the reservation start date. Exclusions apply to some promotional tours.

 

Refunds

Refunds will be calculated from the day the request for cancellation is received and will not be granted if air ticket has been issued. We will refund any payment made to SNA Tours directly, less any cancellation fees, transport penalties, visa application and travel insurance fees that are applicable within 28 days of our receipt of your written cancellation request. A full refund will be granted if we are unable to accommodate for your preferred departure dates or if we are required to cancel the tour for any reason.

 

Travellers’ Responsibilities

It is the participant’s responsibility to reconfirm flight times and itinerary with the airline 12 – 24 hours prior to departure. SNA Tours is not responsible to provide compensation for scheduled flights changes, delays or missed tours. SNA Tours reserves the right to modify the itinerary of your tour in the event of air schedule and surface transportation changes, and such changes are necessary. In this event, any increase and reduction of the tour cost will be calculated and charged/refunded accordingly. If you request changes to your tour, you will be required to pay any additional cost in advance.

 

It is travellers’ responsibilities to obtain a visa to destination countries if a visa is required for the passport holder. Comprehensive insurance coverage is recommended for every traveller.

 

Itineraries

SNA Tours reserves the right to modify the itinerary of your tour in the event of air schedule and surface transportation changes, and such changes are necessary. SNA Tours reserves the right to substitute accommodation of similar standard when necessary. If you request changes to your tour, you will be required to pay any additional cost in advance.

 

Health & Fitness

Travellers should have a basic level of physical fitness and mobility and must be able to negotiate uneven surfaces, climb stairs and board boats. Travellers are advised to check with their local health professional at least 45 days prior to departure, as some vaccinations require 30 days or more to be effective. Proof of vaccination is usually not required unless you are coming from an infected area.

 

SNA Tours requires a written notification prior to booking if you have any physical, emotional or mental conditions that may require professional attention during the course of your tour. If you require any special equipment such as a wheelchair you are responsible for providing this. Certain elements of our itineraries may not be wheelchair accessible and we cannot guarantee access or wheelchair assistance at our destinations. We reserve the right to decline a potential participant if, in our opinion, they have the potential to affect the health, safety and enjoyment of other participants.

 

Please familiarise yourself with potential travel, health and safety risks in the regions you wish to visit, prior to booking your tour. SNA Tours is not responsible for checking safety and security conditions, vaccinations or additional health requirements in the regions you will visit or transit.

 

We are unable to accommodate for women past their sixth month of pregnancy.
