Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions

(Please read carefully as they set out our respective rights and obligations. Once you begin your tour, by default you accept these terms and conditions.)

Your contract is with Mystical Journeys (I) Pvt. Ltd. A contract exists between us when we have confirmed you on our tour/hotel booking/ or any other travel related services of your choice and we have received your booking request and deposits. All correspondences in respect of Tours/Travel Service bookings should be addressed to M/s. Mystical Journeys (I) Pvt. Ltd.

Booking

Once full payment is made you will be allocated place/places on the particular tour and a confirmation mailed to you. This is your confirmation of booking. This should be printed and saved for own reference.

Once you begin your tour, you accept and abide by these terms and conditions.

We accept no responsibility for incorrect email or inability to deliver email. If your confirmation does not arrive on time or at all, then you must ask us to resend the email confirmation of the tours you have paid for.

All internet bookings will be confirmed by email.

We reserve the right to sell any places reserved without full payment or a deposit.

It is the responsibility of the passenger to check the accuracy of dates booked upon receipt of their travel documents.

Itinerary/Program is subject to change:  

India is full of surprises and you need to be flexible enough to take advantage of whatever comes along so that we may provide you with the best possible tour. There can be changes that occur at the last minute with hotels, transportation and other elements of the trip. We will address any surprises as they come, but we expect you to flex with the changes as well. If unexpected changes take place due to forces beyond our control, and if those changes cause extra expense in your journey, you are expected to cover those costs yourself. Mystical Journeys are not responsible for expenses incurred due to last minute changes by hotels, delays due to traffic, airline delays, natural disasters, forces of nature, or anything else that is beyond our control.

Payments: 

For all the services contracted, at least 50% advance payment should be made to hold the booking, on confirmed basis & the balance amount to be paid 15 days before of the commencement of the services. Management personnel’s hold the right to decide upon the amount to be paid as advance payment, based on the nature of the service & the time left for the commencement of the service.

If you fail to pay any balance amount owed by the date it is due, we can assume you have cancelled the booking and the cancellation charges will apply.

Mode of Payment:

Overseas advance payment can be made through Wire Transfer to our company bank account.  

Cancellations and refunds:

Cancellation of your booking must be in writing or by email to Mystical Journeys. When written notification has been received by Mystical Journeys, a fee of $250 USD will be levied to cover administration costs.

If you cancel 60 days or more before the trip starts, you will receive a 80% refund.

If you cancel between 30-59 days in advance, you will receive a 50% refund.

If you cancel between 15-29 days in advance, you will receive a 30% refund.

If you cancel less than 15 days in advance there will be no refund.

Please note: this cancellation policy also applies to trip cancellation (for you, individually or for the group as a whole) due to acts of God, or any unforeseen or unexpected events that are not within the control of the tour operators. For example, this means that if you have a death in the family one week before the trip which causes you to cancel the trip, you will not receive a refund. Similarly, if there is a terrorist event or earthquake, that makes it impossible or uncomfortable for the tour to take place, the same cancellation conditions and deadlines will apply.

Although we do not expect this type of event, we highly recommend that you get trip insurance, to cover this possibility. Most of the vendors on this trip will be paid in advance and these fees are not possible for the tour operators to recover once they are paid. If you elect not to get trip insurance you must assume the risk that, in such circumstances, you may lose all or part of your trip fee.

Airline tickets to and from India. Your trip fee does not include your international travel costs to and from India. If your trip is cancelled for any reason whatsoever, Mystical Journeys are not responsible for any loss of money due to non refundable tickets on air carriers to and from India.

Tour Cancellation/Interruption Coverage: As mentioned earlier, we highly recommend that you get trip insurance to cover possible additional costs (airline tickets, loss of luggage, trip delay, medical evacuation, etc.). Please note that travel insurance companies often require insurance be purchased within two weeks of your initial tour confirmation date to include coverage for pre-existing conditions.

Baggage:

Guests are responsible for their own baggage. The baggage at the airport, during any air travel, in coaches, in any train journey, at immigration point’s etc., guests have to verify and be responsible for the same. The porterage or the tips for services rendered to carry guests baggage to the rooms is guest’s responsibility and have to be paid directly to the service provider. The "porter" or any helper arranged by the guests at any train stations, airports, at immigration points or any other place, is the sole responsibility of the guests and guests shall have to pay directly to them.
