Amendment of user booking

A material or substantial change is one made to user travel arrangements before departure, involving change of departure or arrival airport (other than between airports within the same city airport system) outward or return flights being re-scheduled by more than 12 hours, or by substitution of accommodation originally booked with one of a lower grade.

If user do not wish to accept a material change, we will give user a full refund and in addition, whether or not user accept a material change prior to departure, we will also give user compensation for user inconvenience based on the following:
Period before Scheduled Departure Date within which a material change is notified
Charges, per person
These are the only forms of compensation that may be paid to user. As we do not control the day-to-day management of user travel and tour package, it is possible that we may be advised that the reserved travel and tour package may not be suitable or available upon user arrival. If this happens, we will endeavor to provide accommodation of at least the same standard, in the same geographic area. If only accommodation of a lower standard is available, then we will refund the difference of the advertised price between the accommodation booked and that available together with compensation of $10.00 per person for user inconvenience.
