Therefore we can not be held responsible for any loss, damage, injury, accident which may happen during these tours. Also additional expenses due to delay, accident, natural disaster, political unrest, etc. are to be born by the tourist. Due to the changing situation in various places, the tour prices can be changed without prior notice or even during the tour. Participating in our tour implies the tourist's acceptance of the above conditions.

Travel accident insurance
Upon request we will purchase the travel accident insurance covering all provinces in Thailand, for you. For the trips that contain some kinds of adventure we will purchase the insurance. Alternatively you can also buy insurance at your place, covering the whole trip including Thailand, etc. In Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia there is no reliable travel insurance provider. Therefore you are requested to purchase the insurance at your place.

NOTE: If you need to visit a hospital or clinic due to an accident you have to pay yourself. We will later claim the money for you using the receipts, according to the amount covered by the insurance policy.

Payments are made by bank telegraphic transfer before arrival, cash by hand, or using credit cards. At the time being we can accept credit cards (Visa and Master) payment in our offices in Bangkok. Using credit cards clients are to pay additional bank charges of about 3.5% of the payment being made. In bank transfering the payment the bank charges such as commission, communication fees; and currency exchange are to be paid by the clients.

Notice for the payment in Myanmar: Since our Yangon tour operator office does not have facilities to accept any kinds of credit cards or cheques, payment made in Yangon must be in US$ cash only.

Usually when the reservation of all hotels and transport tickets are confirmed, we ask for a down payment by bank transfer.

Cancellation policy
Cancellation policy largely depends on the cancellation policies of service providers we use for your tour. Since the airlines and the various hotels have different policies, we will mention the cancellation policy tour by tour when we finalise the program. Usually cancellation must be made more than 21 days before arrival to avoid any charges.
