Details of important booking conditions and operator's responsibilities applicable to holiday arrangements included in our brochure and website are set out below. Tours described in this website may have changed since it was last published. Changes in airline fares and other changes in exchange rates may have affected the price of particular tours and services.

Tour Conditions

Bookings

A deposit of $150 per person is payable within 7 days of booking, with the balance due at least 60 days prior to departure. However, some suppliers may require an additional deposit to satisfy their individual booking conditions, in which case you will be notified at the time of booking. All deposits are non-refundable. A number of airfares can be used in conjunction with your holiday package, which can have different conditions as to when payment is due. Bookings made 60 - 36 days prior to departure require full payment on receipt of invoice. If payment is not received by the due date, Sri Lanka Tours and Beyond reserves the right to cancel the booking and charge the applicable cancellation levies. Bookings made within 35 days of departure will only be accepted if full payment is received by Sri Lanka Tours and Beyond at the time of reservation. These bookings can also attract communication costs incurred, and are subject to availability of flights and accommodation.

Cancellations

There are cancellation costs affecting both ground arrangements and airfares, which can be up to 100% of the value of the booking. The following cancellation fees will apply as a minimum, and are subject to change:

Ground arrangements

Airfares
Cancellation charges will be subject to the fees charged by the airline(s). Fees depend on the conditions of the airfares used in conjunction with travel packages booked.

Reservations Amendments

If a change of accommodation or departure date is requested after confirmation of a reservation, an amendment fee of $50 per person will apply, in addition to any supplier or airline amendment fees. $100 per person will be charged if travel documents have been issued, also in addition to any supplier or airline amendment fees.

Refunds

No refunds of any unused tours, accommodation, or other services after commencement of travel.

Tour Costs

All costs are based on current exchange rates, hotel and sightseeing charges, airfares, taxes and surcharges, and are subject to change. A number of airfares can be used in conjunction with your holiday package.

Baggage

Baggage allowances, including cabin and checked, vary between carriers. We recommend confirming your baggage allowance prior to travelling, as excess charges may apply for exceeding these allowances.

Accommodation

Twin accommodation is based on 2 people sharing a twin or double-bedded room. Triple share accommodation is normally a twin or double-bedded room with a rollaway or sofa bed added. Whenever 2 adults and 2 children share one room, we must point out that in most cases these are standard rooms and may be a little crowded.

Hotel and Tour Descriptions

Descriptions of hotels and tours featured in this brochure are based on current information and are subject to change at any time. Travel times are approximate only and may vary.

Visits to wild life parks will be at client's own risk.

Safari vehicles (non air-conditioned) available are very basic with basic insurance cover (not comprehensive as in the case of vehicles used for tours).
