    • HOTEL STANDARDS

      Hotel standards vary throughout India. Hotels in India continually try to upgrade their services and there can be ongoing renovation works throughout the year. We will endeavour to obtain rooms as far away from such activity as possible but please bear in mind that hotels run on full capacity during peak season and specific rooms can rarely be pre-booked. Hotels may be booked far off from central place. Please note that basic amenities will depend on the destination and local infrastructure available.

      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.

      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 of 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.

      Hotels can be booked on the following occupancy basis:

    • SINGLE ACCOMMODATION

      In case you book on a single occupancy basis, you will have to pay a single room supplement unless another tour participant is willing to share your room. You shall also be responsible / liable to pay the single room supplement if earlier having booked on a shared room basis, you later have to take the room on single occupancy basis since your intended room partner has either dropped out of the tour for any reason or since you and / or your room partner are no longer willing to share a room.

      Note that the single room supplement will be charged in all cases where a booking on a shared room basis has to be changed to single room basis including the following:

      • Intended room partner was arranged by you.
      • Intended room partner was arranged by us for you.
      • No room partner was found available for you.
    • DOUBLE / TWIN ACCOMMODATION

      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 as most of the hotel rooms are twin- bedded. In case of non-availability of a room with a queensized bed, a twin bedded-room would be given. In case of non-availability of either of them, the booking will be made based on the availability of the hotel.

    • TRIPLE ACCOMMODATION

(width + length + height).

    • BAGGAGE ON AIRLINE

      If you carry more than the permitted luggage weight then, in such case you may have to pay extra charges for luggage to the airline directly and the Company shall not be responsible / liable in this regard.
