GoTyolo-Booking Terms and Conditions
By making a booking, the first named person on the booking agrees on behalf of all persons detailed on the booking that:
He/she has read these terms and conditions and has the authority to and does agree to be bound by them;
He/she is over 18 years of age and where placing an order for services with age restrictions declares that he/she and all members of the party are of the appropriate age to purchase those services.
Our differing obligations are set out below.
Applicable to all bookings
When you make a booking, you confirm that you have the authority to accept and do accept these conditions on your behalf and on behalf of all members of your party and further, if you are making a booking for more than one person, that you are responsible for all payments due from each and every member of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that any information which you give us is accurate and that information which is given to you by us or any of our suppliers is passed on to all members of your party.
When you make your booking, you must pay the relevant deposit or full payment as specified at the time of booking. No contract will come into existence until we accept your booking and we receive your deposit or full payment in cleared funds and issue you with a confirmation invoice either on behalf of ourselves or the supplier in question.
Please check that all names, dates and timings are correct on receipt of all documents and advise us of any errors immediately, as changes cannot be made later and it may harm your rights if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document immediately. Please ensure that the names given are the same as in the relevant passport.
The booking information that you provide to us will be passed on only to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements or other persons necessary for the provision of your travel arrangements. The information may therefore be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary and religious requirements. Certain information may also be passed on to security or credit checking companies.
Discounts & Offers
GoTyolo offers return travellers a discount of Upto 10% on all future tours booked directly with GoTyolo. When booking through a travel agent, please note that your return customer discount will NOT be applied.
It is important that you inform us of the fact that you are a return traveller before your tour is paid in full so that we can apply this discount to your booking. No refunds will be processed to return customers who inform us of their return customer status after full payment has been made.
The return traveller discount is only applicable on the tour component of a booking. The discount is not applicable on any single supplements, pre/post tour accommodation, optional excursions or other additions or upgrades on your booking.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise multiple discounts and other offers cannot be combined, and cannot be applied to existing bookings.
At the time of booking you will be required to pay a deposit of 20% of the tour price or a minimum amount per person or make full payment for your booking if booking less than 45 days before departure. Where you only pay a deposit, you must pay the full balance by the balance due date notified to you. If full payment is not received by the balance due date, we will notify the ground partner who may cancel your booking and charge the cancellation fees set out in their Terms and Conditions. Alternatively, where you have booked a package with us, you will be subject to our cancellation charges.
Please take note that while GoTyolo does not charge any payment processing fees, you may incur cross-border charges set by your bank or credit card provider, when using your card to make an online payment. GoTyolo is based in INDIA and cross border charges may be incurred if you are based outside of INDIA. These charges are set by your bank or credit card provider and not by GoTyolo. These charges are non-refundable. If you are unsure if you will incur cross border charge, please contact your bank before making a payment online. If you would rather make a payment via bank transfer, please contact our customer service department for further details.
Once a booking has been created and the initial deposit or full balance payment paid, the currency can no longer be changed on that booking.
Note: The above terms apply to all tours except those bookings listed within the next section “Payment - Exceptions”.
Payment - Exceptions
Group Bookings: Where 15 people or more are booked on the same reservation, you will be required to make deposit payments as set out below:
10% deposit payment due when the booking is created
25% of booking value due 180 days before travel
Full payment due 60 days before travel
At the time of booking you will be required to pay a fixed deposit or make full payment for your booking if booking less than 45 days before departure. Where you only pay the fixed deposit, you must pay the full balance by the balance due date notified to you. If full payment is not received by the balance due date, we will notify our ground partner who may cancel your booking and charge the cancellation fees set out in their Terms and Conditions. Alternatively, where you have booked a package with us, you will be subject to our cancellation charges as set out in Sections B below.
We endeavour to ensure that all of the information and prices both on our website and in our brochures are accurate; however, occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to the arrangements that you wish to book before your booking is confirmed.
If you have any special requests please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to our ground partner/representatives but we do not guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.
Adequate travel insurance is a condition of booking with us. You must take out a policy of insurance in order to cover you and your party against the cost of cancellation by you; the cost of assistance (including repatriation) in the event of accident or illness; loss of baggage and money; and other expenses. Failure to disclose relevant information will affect your insurance. You agree to provide us with a copy of your insurance policy on request.
Please note we do not check insurance policies. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.
Guaranteed Group Departures
All tours operated by us are guaranteed departures and will operate unless force majeure circumstances or other unforeseen circumstances arise. Due to the traveller numbers on a specific tour, we reserve the absolute right to change the type or style of transportation or other elements, to enable the tour to operate.
Incase we have to cancel any particular trip on a particular tour due to unavoidable situation , we will try to replace it with another tour or will give the required refund to our clients.
Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to the clients are affected by any event which we or the ground partner of the service in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. These events can include, but are not limited to war, threat of war, civil strife, terrorist activity and its consequences or the threat of such activity, riot, the act of any government or other national or local authority including port or river authorities, industrial dispute, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster and all similar events outside our control or the control of the supplier concerned.
Accommodation Ratings and Standards
On any of our European tours, Egypt tours, Turkey & Greece tours and Croatia tours, accommodation is provided in twin accommodation, which may be two single beds or a double bed and a bunk bed. In certain locations, particularly in Austria and Switzerland, a twin is commonly accepted as referring to two separate mattresses and duvets contained in one large frame.
Two travellers booking together will be accommodated in a twin room. Three travellers booking together will be accommodated as follows: two travellers will be roomed in one twin room; the third person will be accommodated in a same gender twin share room. We will use our discretion in allocating the third person to a room share; unless we are otherwise advised in writing as to who will be sharing with whom.
Triple rooms can be requested, in writing, but cannot be guaranteed in every location in which event the above situation applies. Most hotels have rooms that will take an extra bed if required. These extra beds may be bunk beds, fold-away beds or sofa beds. Where an extra bed is added this may limit the space available.
Single travellers will be accommodated in same-gender twin rooms paired with another single traveller, unless they pay a single room supplement at an additional cost. Single rooms do not always match up either in size or facilities to twin bedded rooms.
Please note that in some properties, lifts may not directly service all floors and access to and from these floors may be by stairway only. Please note that porter services are not standard and not available at many hotels.
Accommodation ratings are displayed as provided by our ground partner. These are intended to give a guide to the services and facilities you should expect from your accommodation. Standards and ratings may vary between countries, as well as between suppliers. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of any ratings given and no warranty is given or implied.
Safety standards in some countries may differ from those applicable in India. We strongly advise that all customers seek to minimise their exposure to injury by familiarising themselves with relevant safety information that may be posted around the hotel or anywhere else.
Meals are included as stipulated in the tour itinerary, check your specific tour itinerary on our website or emails for details of which meals are included. Please inform us your meal preference at the time of booking, as well as your tour leader at the start of the tour. Please be aware that in many parts of the world vegetarian meals are classified as meals without meat or fish, and may not be what you are used to. Specific religious dietary requirements can be catered for by providing the vegetarian option. Non-included meals are at your own expense. This allows you the opportunity to try the local cuisine.
There is always an excellent range of restaurants and supermarkets to choose from in each destination. You will also need to purchase drinks and snacks for long bus or coach journeys as there may not be the opportunity once on board.
Fitness to Travel, Age and Medical Conditions
If you have any medical condition, disability or special requirements which may affect your holiday, please tell us before you confirm your booking, as we are able to make enquiries of the supplier about the suitability of arrangements for you and provide replies prior to booking.
Clients are also expected to accept that the components described constitute "Adventure Travel" and that travel to and facilities in other countries will not be to similar standards which they may be accustomed to at home.
Persons over 65 years of age may be asked to provide medical evidence of fitness to travel on certain itineraries. Minors (those under 18 years of age) are accepted on some group tours operated by us at our discretion provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who accepts full responsibility for them. Unaccompanied minors will not be accepted. We have recommended ages for participation in group tours which act as a guide only. Please note that no persons under 10 will be accepted on our tours unless this is formally requested in writing. GoTyolo reserves the right to allow or deny younger travellers onto our tours at our discretion.
All itineraries include a large amount of walking. Walking tours may take up to three hours, and walking to and from hotel and restaurants is unavoidable. All itineraries include the use of public transportation, which can be public buses, trams, trains and metro. The coach will not be used on all days due to driving hours legislations.
Clients agree to accept the authority and decision of our employees, tour leaders, and agents whilst on tour with us. If in the opinion of such a person, the health or conduct of a client before or after departure appears likely to endanger the safety, comfort or enjoyment of a tour, the client may be excluded from all or part of the tour, without any refunds. In the case of ill health, we may make such arrangements as it sees fit and recover the costs from the client.
If a client is excluded from the tour as above or chooses to leave the tour of their own free will or leaves the tour due to ill health or any other reason there will be no refund of the tour price, extra services, surcharges, local payments/funds or any local surcharges.
Passports, Visas and Health
We work with external partners for visa assistance and we can only provide general information about the passport and visa requirements for the trip, but this is for guidance only and it remains the client’s responsibility to check the requirements before you travel.
In the event of any assistance required for applying visa, the customer needs to inform us during booking about the requirement of the visa.
Please note that we can only help in the documentation of the visa not guarantee the visa. The visa approval or rejection will only be taken by the specific embassies or consulates and we or our visa assistance partners hold not control.
It is the responsibility of the Customer to enquire about specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements. The Customer should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates prior to travel. Neither we nor the ground partner accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements and normal cancellation fees will apply.
We can provide general information about any health formalities required for the trip but Customer should check with their own doctor for the specific circumstances.
Passport should be valid for at least six months after the completion of the tour. There should be several blank pages in the passport as Visas and entry/exit stamps can take up a whole page.
Final Travel Arrangements
Please ensure that all your travel, passport, visa and insurance documents are in order and that you arrive in plenty of time for checking in at the relevant departure point.
Check-in & Check-out
Generally hotel rooms will be available for check in between 12.00 noon and 15.00 with check out between 10.00 and 12.00 noon. Please note that our itineraries often require that we deviate from these times in order to stay on schedule.
If you have booked a package holiday with us or a single-element booking where we are acting as principal, please inform your Tour Leader about any queries or concerns immediately or contact us via the contact numbers listed on our website. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please follow this up within 14 days of your return home by writing to us giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. It is strongly recommended that you communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question without delay whilst on tour. If you fail to follow this procedure, we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were on tour and this may affect your rights under this contract.

If we make any changes or cancel the package
It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your Package, but we do plan the arrangements many months in advance. Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will advise you of them at the earliest possible date. We also reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your Package.
However, if we have to make a major change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible via email and if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of (for major changes):
accepting the changed arrangements;
having a refund of all monies paid; or
accepting an offer of alternative travel packages of comparable standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value).
We will not pay you compensation where we make a major change or cancel more than 45 days before departure or in the event that we are forced to make a change or cancel as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care or if we cancel your arrangements. (We will tell you if we have to cancel for this reason not less than 45 days before departure).
Delays, Missed Transport Arrangements
If you miss your coach or other transport arrangement, it is cancelled or you are subject to a delay for any reason on the day of departure, you must inform us immediately. We will provide you with prompt assistance. Where you experience a delay, which is not owing to any failure by us, our employees or sub-contractors, this prompt assistance is likely to extend to providing help in locating refreshments, accommodation and communications but not paying for them. Any airline or other transport supplier may however pay for or provide refreshments and/or appropriate accommodation and you should make a claim directly to them. We will not be liable for any costs, fees or charges you incur in the above circumstances.
Our tours run to a schedule and if you, or any member of your party is late during the tour, you may be left behind. If this occurs, please contact your tour leader immediately. The departure times during the tour are set by the tour leader and driver and will be notified to you at each stop and each day. It is your responsibility to be on time, failure to be on time can cause delays to the tour itinerary.
