Travel Supplier Rules and Restrictions
Additional Terms & Conditions will be applicable to your reservation when purchasing travel-related services and products with us. You may kindly read the additional Terms & Conditions carefully before proceeding to make transactions with us. If you have, particularly, purchased a flight ticket with us then must read the Terms & Conditions of the airline with which your ticket has been bought, which can be viewed on the said airline’s website.
We understand that you agree to the Terms & Conditions of purchase as required by the supplier with whom the flights are to be booked, and payments to be made in full in compliance with the rules and restrictions by the said supplier. Airfare will be guaranteed only when the purchase has been finally made and air tickets have been issued. The prices may be changed by airlines and other suppliers without any prior notice. Your booking can be cancelled if full payment is not received by us in a time-bound manner.
The customers may be offered the opportunity for booking a reservation for a combination of two (2) one-way tickets instead of a roundtrip ticket by us. As such, combined one-way tickets can be utilized on the same airline or on different airlines. Different rules, restrictions and fees are applicable to each one-way ticket. If the airline makes schedule changes or cancellation to one or all of the flights and the customer has to make changes to one or all the affected flights then the customer will have to pay any fees incurred for doing changes to the unaffected flight.
You must also acknowledge and understand that violating the rules and restrictions of the concerned supplier may result in the cancellation of your reservation, denying access to the travel services and/or products, forfeiting of any amount paid by you for reservation, and/or debiting your account for any costs incurred because of such violation.
Our Booking Process
Once you have decided to book a flight ticket or any other travel products and/or services with us and place an offer for the same then we reserve the right to either accept or reject your offer on behalf of the concerned Travel Supplier, for any or no reason, at our sole discretion.
The email confirmation sent to you by us is an acknowledgement regarding the receipt of your offer, and not necessarily the contractual acceptance of the booking. We will check the availability of the flight ticket or the travel product or service as requested and will initiate the booking process upon its availability. The relevant booking will be treated as final and confirmed only when the full payment for the same has been received by us along with your acknowledgement.
Your booking (such as dates of travel, ticket availability and/or price) is not guaranteed unless the travel supplier makes and confirms the reservation and a ticket has been issued by us. After you have completed your booking, the changes to your booking (such as destinations or names) or cancellation will be at our sole discretion and in accordance to these Terms & Conditions.
We want to clearly state that neither Fond Travels nor its business associates/third-party suppliers will be held responsible or accountable if you are denied boarding, delayed or deported because of non-fulfillment of the supplier’s rules and restrictions and all that is required of you by the government as part of your travel process. In such situations, you won’t be entitled to any refunds from us whatsoever.
Please note that all the passengers on your booking (if more than one) will have to travel on the same itinerary. We won’t allow you to add or delete individual passengers from your booking. Fond Travels reserves the right for correcting errors in any advertised price, and, if applicable, provides you an option for either canceling the booking or allowing us for collecting an amount equal to any increase in price from your debit or credit card, before your scheduled departure.
Your booking to us is provided by the concerned travel supplier. In case of frequent flyer points and/or miles, you need to check it with the relevant travel supplier. Once your booking has been confirmed and the final ticket issued, the name(s) or destination(s) as provided in your booking can’t be transferred or changed.
Pricing, Taxes/Fees, and Payment
The total prices quoted by us are inclusive of all fees and taxes applicable to airfare, hotel and/or car rentals in your booking. Additional fuel surcharges and service fees may be charged by relevant travel suppliers, if applicable, during check-in.
