All disputes that may arise between One Excellence Travel and You with regard to the Site, this Agreement, transactions facilitated or conducted through the Site, tours and travel services ordered or purchased through the Site, or any dealings between You and One Excellence Travel, the parties will try to find the least onerous solution to the Dispute.

Cancellation or Modification by Us
Every effort will be made to operate all services as advertised but it must be remembered that we use independent suppliers such as hotels etc., over whom we have no direct control. On occasions, changes do have to be made and we reserve the right, at our discretion, to modify or cancel any service booked at any time. Most of these changes are minor. However, if we consider them a material modification we will endeavor to advise you at least 24 hours before the start of the tour and if you accept them, they will form part of the contract between you and us.
A material modification is one which has a serious effect on your holiday and includes, for example, a change of departure date, departure point, or change of departure time of more than twelve hours, which may, depending on the circumstances, cause substantial inconvenience to you. We do not consider a change of hotel or accommodation as material.
If the Service had to be cancelled or changed because of force majeure events (circumstances unforeseeable or beyond our control), we will notify you as soon as we can. In this event, the following alternatives are available:
- an alternative tour of equivalent quality, equivalent price and maintaining the same dates of travel
- an alternative tour of equivalent quality and equivalent price, but on different dates of travel
However, in this case, we cannot take responsibility for any losses you may suffer.
If our company cannot provide you with the service you ordered because of our employees’ or suppliers’ fault, the price paid for the booked service will be refunded. In this case our liability will be limited to the price of the booked service.
We reserve the right to change the pick-up time for any service if necessary. Our clients will be contacted by phone about such changes at least 4 hours before departure on the mobile phone number provided in the booking.
Cancellation by You
Cancellation of a booking by you must be made by email to our main contact address (see our contact page); an oral message is insufficient. This avoids any misunderstanding. We will not treat a booking as cancelled until written notice by email is received by us.
In case of tours that are 2+ days long, if the cancellation is within 4 days of the departure date, the following charges will apply:
|Days before departure||Refund|
|Over 4 DAYS||Deposit – Costs incurred by our company|
|Less than 4 DAYS||No refund|
