Cash payment in INR will be accepted as per the Government of India guidelines along with PAN. Kindly note, outstation cheque is not accepted.

3.2 In case of payments made using Credit Card, Debit Card and Online Transfer, convenience charge of 1.8% shall be levied and will be paid extra by the guest.

3.3 The tour price printed / advertised / quoted to the guests is dynamic. A guest booking the tour early is likely to get the lowest price as communicated / offered by the Company, subject to availability of seats. Similarly, a guest booking the tour at the last minute may be offered high prices or vice versa. This pricing structure has been adopted to get early bookings on tours or for filling vacant seats last minute. Hence it is quite obvious that guests travelling on a same group tour are likely to have paid different tour prices. The Company will not entertain any claim whatsoever on account of the same.

3.4 It is a clear agreement between either parties that the prices quoted in the proposal/ brochure/ website have been calculated based upon the prevailing airline/ hotel/ transport tariffs and applicable taxes thereon. The Company reserves the right to alter or amend the price published on the website/ brochure/ proposal in case of increase in taxes, fuel charge, YQ/YR taxes, visa fee, unprecedented foreign exchange fluctuation etc., which will have to be borne by the guest and to be paid before the departure.

3.5 Tour price does not include government taxes and are to be paid extra. As per government’s current regulations, 5% GST (Goods and Services Tax) is applicable on every tour/package and guests will have to pay the same over and above the tour price. In addition to this, effective from 1st October 2020, government has levied TCS (Tax Collected at Source) on GST inclusive tour/package price of international/overseas travel packages. The TCS rate is either 5% or 10% depending of certain requirements. Those guests who have submitted PAN copy, Aadhaar copy and have filed their Income Tax Returns (ITR) for previous two assessment years need to pay 5% TCS. Those guests who do not possess PAN and Aadhaar or have not filed their Income Tax Returns (ITR) for previous two assessment years, will have to pay 10% TCS. The TCS collected can be claimed while filing annual income tax returns. The TCS amount will reflect in the Form 26AS of the guest in whose name invoice is raised (i.e. Family Head), irrespective of the person who has made the payment for the tour/package. Hence while booking guests must ensure that the family head is selected properly in order to claim the benefit at later stage. Once the TCS amount is collected from the guest, it cannot be refunded by Maclareen Tours n Travels, as it is paid to government and reflects against the Form 26AS of the guest. The TCS is not applicable in case of corporates, who possess TAN (Tax deduction & collection account number) and claims TDS while making their tour/package payment.

3.6 If the guest has booked the tour online, the guest needs to reconfirm and authenticate the information provided at the time of online booking. Company reserves the right, to cancel the booking and forfeit the amount paid in case of any misleading information provided by the guest.

3.7 The registration amount paid at the time of booking is non-refundable and interest free, subject to the Cancellation and Refund Policy. Registration amount differs from tour to tour. For tours where air or cruise booking is required, the registration amount will be higher compared to other tours. Payment of registration amount ensures only registration/ participation in the tour and does not entitle to the guest of any services like air tickets, visas, and hotel accommodation until full payment for the tour has been made by the guest and received by Maclareen Tours n Travels. As per payment guidelines stated tour price must be paid in full, 45 days before the tour departure; in case if tour is booked within 45 days of the departure date, guests must make full payment of the tour price at the time of booking itself. For any reason if the registration amount is not paid in full at the time of booking, guest will ensure that the balance registration amount is paid within 3 days of booking; else booking stands cancelled.
