All our trips are in INR (Rupees) and if you are using an international card to pay via our online booking system (which uses PayPal) a small percentage fee may be applied. This is due to foreign exchange conversion and certain Paypal transaction fees incurred.
Payment for most tours needs to be made when we have confirmed availability. Payment needs to be done in advance of the tour to confirm your booking in one of the following ways:

CANCELLATIONS BY US
While we always endeavour to avoid cancellations and changes, we must reserve the right to do so. However, we promise we will only cancel your confirmed booking where we are forced to do so as a result of circumstances outside our control or because an insufficient number of people have booked your chosen tour.
We will notify you before the tour starts if we have to cancel for lack of numbers. Please note that we do reserve the right to run tours with less than the stated minimum number. If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible. If we have to cancel, we will pay back the full amount and will not deduct any non-refundable expenses. Compensation will not be payable and no liability assumed by us.
If you cancel/change a tour, if we have incurred expenses which we can’t recoup (such as car hire), then you will have to pay for these expenses.
Changes, Cancellations And Refunds (Multi-Day Tours)
CHANGES BY YOU: A change of departure date and/or a change in tour must be requested in writing by the person who made the original booking.
Should the changes result in additional fees or charges to Reality Tours and Travel from suppliers then Reality Tours and Travel reserves the right to pass on those additional charges to the client. Or to apply an ‘administration charge’ accordingly.
Changes should be notified at earliest opportunity. If the change results in the cancellation of the tour in whole or in part then cancellation charges will be applied.
Whilst every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate changes and additional requests their availability can’t be guaranteed.
CHANGES BY US: While Reality Tours and Travel will use its best endeavours to operate all tours as advertised, by entering into this contract the client accepts that it may prove necessary or advisable to vary or modify an itinerary or its contents due to prevailing local conditions.
Reality Tours and Travel reserves the right at any time either before or during a tour to cancel or change any of the facilities, services or prices described (including flights, transport, accommodation or other arrangements) and to substitute alternative arrangements of comparable monetary value without compensation and accepts no liability for loss of enjoyment as a result of these changes.
If a major change needs to be made, the client will be told at the time of booking. If a major change becomes necessary Reality Tours and Travel will inform the client as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before departure.
