Cancellations by us

Every effort will be made to operate all tours as advertised but it must be remembered that our tours are planned in advance and due to factors outside our control it may be necessary to use alternative accommodation and services in some instances. We therefore reserve the right to modify or cancel any tour, accommodation or arrangement at any time. We will notify you as soon as possible of any material changes. In the event of any material modification or cancellation we will, if possible, arrange on your behalf three alternatives:

• services of an equivalent or similar standard, if available;

• services of a lower standard together with a refund of the difference in price; or

• cancellation with a full refund of all money paid.

A material modification is one which has a serious affect on your tour and includes a change of departure date, departure point or airport, or change of departure time of more than twelve hours, which would cause substantial inconvenience to you. A change of accommodation or transport style is not a material change. In the event that there are an insufficient number of bookings to provide a particular tour, we may cancel the tour no later than 30 days prior to the scheduled departure date, whereupon all money paid by you. Cebu Holiday Tours & Travel Inc shall be refunded but no further compensation will be paid. You and Cebu Holiday Tours & Travel Inc agree to release each other from any further obligations which would have been enforceable had the tour not been cancelled.

* Special requests
You must let us know at the time of making your booking if you have special requests or needs (such as ground floor accommodation, disability access or specific dietary requirements). We will try to meet any request you have, however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate every person’s needs and we make no promises and take no responsibility for special requests which we are unable to fulfil. If we reasonably feel we are unable to satisfactorily accommodate your particular needs, we reserve the right to decline the booking or ask for you to be accompanied by a person who is able to provide full assistance to you throughout your tour.

* Health
You must ensure that you are aware of any health requirements and recommended precautions relevant to your travel and ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation. In some cases, failure to present required vaccination documentation (e.g. proof of Yellow Fever vaccination) may deny you entry into a country. We recommend that you consult with your local doctor, travel medical service or specialist vaccination clinic before commencing your tour.

* Travel documents & conduct
All travellers must check their travel documentation to ensure that the dates are correct, visas have been obtained and passports have at least six months validity. Please ensure you carefully read your invoice and all other documents we send to you as soon as you receive them and contact us immediately if any information appears to be incorrect. If you do not arrive on the agreed date for your tour we may treat the tour as having been cancelled by you.

We exercise care in the selection of reputable service providers but we have no control over, or liability for, the services provided by third parties. All bookings are made subject to the terms and conditions including conditions of carriage and limitations of liability imposed by these service providers. We can provide you with copies of the relevant service provider terms and conditions on request. Your legal rights in relation to such services are against the specific service provider and, except to the extent a problem is caused by fault on our part, not against us. You acknowledge that this clause shall apply to all third party-provided services notwithstanding that our tour guide may accompany you during provision of such services.

* Liability
Your booking is accepted on the understanding that you appreciate and assume the risks inherent in travel. These risks may be greater if your tour includes adventure activities or sports (such as kayaking, hiking, climbing, rafting, cycling and quad or motor biking). To the extent permitted by law, neither Cebu Holiday Tours nor any of its related bodies corporate, directors, shareholders, employees or agents accept any liability in contract, tort or otherwise for any injury, damage, loss (including consequential loss), delay, additional expense or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly by:

• any other event which is beyond our control, including acts of God or force majeure, illness, disease, acts of war, civil unrest, insurrection or revolt, animals, strikes or other labour activities, criminal or terrorist activities of any kind, overbooking or downgrading of services, food poisoning, mechanical or other failure of aircraft, cars or other means of transportation or for failure of any transportation mechanism to arrive or depart on time.

Except in cases of death or bodily injury, our liability is limited in any event to a maximum value of the price of your tour. Under circumstances where our liability cannot be excluded and where liability may be lawfully limited, such as under applicable consumer laws, our liability is limited to the remedies required of us under those laws. 

Subject to these terms and conditions (including ‘Our role as agent’), our liability to you for death or bodily injury, where such death or bodily injury is not caused by or contributed to by you, is limited in accordance with any applicable international conventions, including the Geneva Convention 1973 in respect of carriage by road and the Athens Convention 1974 in respect of carriage by sea.
