CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

PRIOR TO DEPARTURE CHARGE
60 days or more: US$300 deposit
59 – 30 days: 10% of selling price or deposit, whichever is greater
29 – 15 days: 50% of selling price
14 days – departure: 100% of selling price
If you do not show up, if you cancel your trip after the departure date, or if you leave a trip already in progress, no refund in full or in part will be given for any unutilized or partially-utilized services included in the program.
No amendments to your journey will be processed until your deposit has been received. Up to 60 days prior to departure, one permitted amendment per booking can be made free of charge. Amasia Travel reserves the right to charge for subsequent permitted amendments, as follows:
PRIOR TO DEPARTURE CHARGE
60 days and more: US$50 per booking
59 – 30 days: US$100 per person, per journey
29 days – Departure: Standard cancellation charges will apply, and full price will apply to new arrangement
These amendment charges are in addition to any charges passed on to us by any suppliers such as airlines, hotels or other tour operators. Permitted amendments include, without limitation, changes to accommodation or travel arrangements. Name changes are not permitted as many suppliers deem a name change to constitute a cancellation and re-booking. An amended booking which is subsequently cancelled will be subject to the cancellation fee according to either the original departure date at time of amendment or the subsequent date, (whichever is the greater).
Vouchers will be issued by Amasia Travel for all booking arrangements. A copy of the Client’s itinerary will be enclosed with the voucher and should be received by the Client on his/her arrival or beginning of the arrangements booked.

All traveler require a valid passport and, in most instances, a visa. It is your responsibility to have a valid passport and the necessary visas for the countries being visited. Amasia Travel accepts no responsibility if you do not have the correct documentation for your vacation. It is highly recommended that you allow at least a minimum of 15 working days for visa processing. Please note, IF YOU LEAVE AND RE-ENTER ANY COUNTRY THAT REQUIRES A VISA YOU MAY NEED TO OBTAIN A MULTIPLE-ENTRY VISA FOR THAT COUNTRY. Please also note that most countries in Asia insist that passports are valid for at least six months after date of entry.
Insurance is not included in Amasia Travel tour prices. The Client must have travel insurance which covers personal accident and medical expenses, evacuation and repatriation, baggage loss, and cancellation or curtailment of vacation. Your insurance details must be supplied to us at the time of booking. If you fail to provide the requested insurance information, we reserve the right, acting in our sole discretion, to cancel bookings and apply charges as per our cancellation policy. We highly recommend that all travelers take out an adequate insurance policy before travelling.
