    • We are travel and holiday organizers only. We inspect and select the services to be provided to you. However, we do not own, operate or control any airline, shipping company, coach or coach company, hotel, transport, restaurant, kitchen caravan or any other facility or provider that is engaged to provide you services during the course of your tour. Therefore, please carefully note that: (1) you will need to adhere to the conditions, rules and regulations of each service provider. For instance, you will need to check the baggage rules of the airline to understand what kind of baggage and how much baggage you can carry. You will need to check the hotel rules to check what the mealtimes are, at which you should make yourself available. The company is not responsible for the consequences if you breach such rules and regulations; (2) If you cause any injury or damage affecting the service provider, then you may be liable to the service provider and if the service provider recovers any monies from us for such injury or damages, we shall separately charge you for the same; (3) we cannot be held responsible for any delay, deficiency, injury, death, loss or damage occasioned due to act or default of such service providers, their employees or agents.
    • Please refer to the itinerary in the brochure / website for details of the meals which would be served to you on the tour. Unlike an airline, we cannot process a special meal, nor can we guarantee a special diet. We do not assure special meals or special timings or extra halts for infants, children, or passengers with diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure or any other condition. If you have any such special requirements arising from medical conditions or from the needs of your children or otherwise, it would be advisable to travel on a customized tour and coach tours are not recommended. We, however, reserve the right to change the meal arrangement, where circumstances compel us to do so. At some places a meal allowance may be paid to you to enable you to have a meal of your own choice.
    • The Company selects hotels for your stay at locations, which give comfort and value for money. For various reasons, such as reducing the overall traveling time on the coach for the following day, the hotels may be chosen away from the city centre. Modern facilities such as attached toilets with showers / bathtubs are provided. We cannot guarantee the availability of adjoining rooms / interconnecting rooms / non-smoking room / rooms on the same floor etc. and are subject to availability. If you seek a change in rooming while on a tour, the same will be subject to availability and you will need to pay any additional charges as may be applicable.
    • Check in and Check out times may vary from city to city. Usually, the check-in time is 2:00 p.m. and check-out by 11:00 a.m. However, in case the room is required on immediate occupancy / late check out, kindly inform our sales executive to assist on the same at an additional cost. Adjoining rooms / interconnecting rooms / non-smoking rooms / rooms on the same floor etc, are subject to availability. Hotel standards vary dramatically throughout India in larger cities such as Delhi and Mumbai, hotels are fully modernized with excellent facilities, whilst in other cities and towns the hotels are smaller but quite often have good facilities. In the desert cities of Rajasthan, areas of southern India, small hill towns and recently opened areas, many hotels are small, privately owned properties or converted palaces, retaining much of their original ambience, but the room size, shape and design can vary enormously (even in the same price bracket). Although palace hotels often have simple facilities and service can be slow, we ask for your patience as this is more than compensated for by there atmosphere and charm. Hotels in India continually try to upgrade their services and there can be building constructions and renovation works throughout the year. Cox & Kings will endeavor to obtain rooms as far away from any construction work as possible but please bear in mind that hotels run on full capacity during peak season and specific rooms can rarely be pre-booked. Even when you travel off the beaten track with Cox & Kings, you can be sure that your accommodation in game lodges, smaller hotels and tented camps is the best available in their category. Sometimes the best hotel may be the only hotel, which may be very modest. In these cases we feel that the simplicity of such accommodation is outweighed by the experience of these more remote areas. Accommodation will often be in tents or lodges. Economy hotels are budget hotels and they may not have any star category classification obtained from the relevant authorities of Government of India. Even 2 star properties approved by the India Tourism, Government of India, can be considered as economy hotels. These hotels may provide very bare basic amenities. Standard hotels are mainly 3 star category hotels approved by the India Tourism, Government of India. They may also include Heritage hotels, Lodges and Resorts. Deluxe hotels can be categorized with ratings of 4 star or 5 star approved by the HRACC, India Tourism, Government of India. They may also include Heritage hotels, Lodges and Resorts. Please note: Heritage hotels are set in old or historic style buildings and are categorized into grand, classic and heritage. If you would like to stay in any hotels other than those featured in the tour itinerary, or you would like to upgrade the standard of your room, this can be arranged and you will be informed of the difference in price and this would be subject to availability. Any damage caused to the hotel property by you will have to be paid by you and the Company would not be liable for the same.
    • A double room has either a single queen-size bed or two separate beds. If the Client requests for a room with queen-size bed or twin bed, the same would be provided subject to availability.
    • We recommend a maximum of only three persons in one room. Triple rooms are usually no larger than twin rooms and the third bed is often a rollaway bed or cot placed in a twin room.
    • Pre / post tour accommodation / add on packages or extensions etc. are available to you at special rates. You must ensure that you request your travel agent or your sales officer for the same at the time of booking your tour.
    • We generally engage air-conditioned / non-air-conditioned luxury coaches / cars, but we are not responsible if the air-conditioning equipment malfunctions for any reason. Normally, the air conditioning will not function during hill drives for coaches and cars. On group tours, you are not allotted seat numbers as a seat rotation system is followed. You must follow the instructions of the Tour Manager in this regard. The coach / car drivers are bound by restrictions concerning maximum driving hours per day and per week and the itineraries are planned with regard to the same. It is therefore essential that the itineraries, schedules and timings are strictly adhered to by you so as to ensure that all the services can be duly provided. If you or any of your co-passengers miss any service due to unpunctuality, we shall not be liable to refund any amount. Further, we shall not be liable to refund any amount or pay any compensation for any change in itinerary or for missing any service due to the unpunctuality or actions of your co-passengers. Please note that smoking, consumption of alcoholic beverages and snacks is strictly prohibited on coaches / cars. Please keep the coach / cars clean to avoid discomfort to yourself and other tour participants. Please take care not to leave behind any property in the coach / car while disembarking. The Company would not be responsible or liable in case of loss of such property under any circumstances.
    • Please note that porterage is not included in the tour price.
    • Please note that porterage is not included in the tour price. It is often difficult to get porters to assist as hotels may or may not provide this service and it is therefore advisable to use bags with wheels. Coaches / cars have limited space for luggage and hence we permit only one suitcase and one handbag per person in the coach. The suitcase should be of a size of 158 cms. (width + length + height).
    • We shall in no circumstances whatsoever be liable to you or any person travelling with you, for loss of baggage by the airline, failure to provide meal of your choice by the airline, denied boarding or down-gradation due to overbooking or any other reason, failure on the part of the airline to accommodate you despite having confirmed tickets, quality or quantity of meals offered by the airlines, flight delay or rescheduling, flight cancellation, changes of flight schedule or routing, change of airline mentioned at the time of booking. In these circumstances, we will not be liable for the injury, loss or inconvenience suffered by you but you will be free to pursue your remedies against the concerned airline. If you are travelling to a SAARC country, it is absolutely necessary to have your return air seats to India confirmed prior to your departure from India
    • If guests carry more than the permitted luggage weight then, in such case the guest may have to pay extra charges for luggage to the airline directly and the Company shall not be liable in this regard. You are requested to please refer to the baggage rules of the individual airlines as the same gets updated from time to time. Also, we are not liable for any loss or damage to baggage while it is in the custody of the airline. Please note that every airline has a different set of rules and regulations regarding the weight restrictions, the kind of luggage and the number of baggage and furthermore, airlines keep changing the rules quite frequently. Hence, the guests are requested to please check the updated baggage rules of the individual airlines, with whom the ticket is booked.
    • If are you travelling on an air ticket for a group tour issued by Cox & Kings and wish to travel in advance or return at a later date after the tour ends, then you must pay the applicable difference between the group airfare within the package holiday tour cost and the market airfare for the changed sector. The same will be quoted by us to you on your request. Over and above this you will also be required to pay an 'Airline Seat Rebooking and Reservation Fee' of Rs. 2,500/- as applicable per person per sector, per change depending on the airline (subject to availability of seats and ticket validity). Please note that you will not be able to avail of the group transfers and accordingly you will have to make your own way to meet up with the group on arrival and / or to your next destination when your tour ends. We shall not be liable to refund any amount to you in this regard.
    • Though you may receive a confirmed air ticket for a particular sector, airlines often overbook seats, due to which the airline may offload even confirmed passengers and may accommodate them on a subsequent flight. We will not be responsible for any such offloading nor for any consequence of such offloading including delay, inconvenience or loss of tour services. As you are booked on a group fare ticket, please note that seat allotment will be done only when you physically report at the airport check in counter. You are advised to report at the airport check in counter at least 3 to 4 hours prior to the departure time. Seat allocation is a matter of airlines discretion and availability of seats which is not in the control of Cox & Kings. Hence Cox & Kings shall not be held responsible if you do not get seats together or do not get your preferred seats. Please note that in case you are returning on a later date after the tour ends, the responsibility to re-confirm air tickets 72 hours prior to the departure would be solely yours.
    • You will have to take the risk and responsibility of all your baggage, belongings, currency, valuables, documents and personal effects (collectively 'baggage') at all times during the tour, whether during travel on the airline or during your stay in hotel or during your travel in coaches, while on excursions or otherwise. If you forget to carry or if you lose essential travel documents such as permits, passport, ID, visa, tickets etc., you may be compelled to curtail the tour and you may have to incur extra expenses, for which you alone shall be responsible. In view of what is stated above, please carefully note that: (1) We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage in respect of your baggage etc. or their contents whether due to theft, accident, negligence or otherwise; (2) We shall not be responsible for any cancellation or curtailment of your tour compelled by any such loss of baggage etc. and we shall pay no compensation or refund to you; (3) Some coverage in respect of baggage loss or damage may be provided by insurance (see below the Insurance section). It is advisable that you do not carry valuables on the tour. However, if you carry any valuables, we recommend that you use all available facilities to keep them secure during your tour. In this regard, some hotels provide Safe Deposit Lockers (which may be charged separately). In case of airlines, we recommend that you declare your valuables to the airline at the time of check-in and pay an additional charge, as may be stipulated by the airline, to make the airline responsible for valuables. Without such declaration, airlines can invoke limitation of liability protections provided in international conventions and laws. If your baggage is lost or misplaced at any time during the course of your tour, it is your responsibility to take all appropriate actions to file complaints with the concerned authorities, including police, airline office etc. In the case of group travel, the Tour Manager is responsible for the whole group of tour participants, he may not be in a position to escort you to lodge a complaint with the authorities, as it could compromise the convenience and time of the group.
