Terms & Conditions

The terms and conditions form a contract between you and Simply Offbeat (the entity owning simplyoffbeat.com) after confirmation of arrangements. All the bookings are subject to conditions in these terms:

In these Conditions, “you” and “your” means the person making the booking and all other persons named on the booking. “We”, “us” and “our” means Simply Offbeat.

Receipt of the booking advance from you is deemed evidence that:

  • You have read and accepted these terms and conditions and the applicable merchant’s terms and agree on behalf of yourself and all members of your party to be bound by both of them
  • You consent to our use of your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy
  • You are over 18 years of age and where placing an order for services with age restrictions you declare that you and all members of your party are of the appropriate age to purchase those services

Prices, payment and booking

In order to confirm your chosen arrangements, you must pay a deposit as required for the holiday in question (or full payment if required in some cases). Your booking is confirmed and a contract between you and the applicable supplier will exist when we send you confirmation on their behalf.

Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to us immediately. Please ensure that names are exactly as stated in the relevant passport (or ID).

If you have paid 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, your booking may be cancelled and you will be charged a cancellation fee set out in the booking conditions.

Payment may be made by credit or debit card or by net banking. Payment through cheques or drafts are also acceptable, the details for which is shared at the time of payment.

Except where otherwise advised or stated in the booking conditions of the merchant concerned, all monies you pay to us for arrangements will be held on behalf of the suppliers concerned.

We own the right to amend the prices of the tours offered. Though once a confirmation is made to you for a tour with the price mentioned, any change in the pricing of our offerings will not affect the price you pay. Unless otherwise stated in the holiday specific terms or in the contract with the supplier, your price is guaranteed once the required advance has been paid in by you.

Cancellation and amendments

Cancellation fee applies to all the holidays and properties and in some cases may differ for holidays/properties. The exact terms for cancellation of a booking are communicated before the confirmation. Please note that for long weekends/Festive dates/Public holidays, no refund will be provided. If cancellation terms are not mentioned in the mail, then following would apply:

1. Booking cancelled before 45 days in prior to the date of arrival will attract no cancellation charges.
2. Booking cancelled between 44 days to 30 days in prior to the date of arrival will attract 25% cancellation charges.
3. Booking cancelled between 29 days to 15 days in prior to the date of arrival will attract 50% cancellation charges.
4. Booking cancelled between 14 days to 0 days in prior to the date of arrival will attract 100% cancellation charges.

Payment of the booking advance would imply the acceptance of the cancellation terms by you.

Any cancellation or amendment request must be sent to us in writing, by email, fax or post, and will take effect on the day we receive it. Proof of posting is not proof of receipt, therefore you are advised to also confirm all changes on telephone. Please ensure that you have received written confirmation of any changes to your booking prior to travel. Whilst we will try to assist, we do not guarantee that such requests will be met. Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the terms and conditions of the applicable merchant. Amendment charges may apply depending on the merchant in question.

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the merchant needs to make a significant change to your confirmed arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the merchant in relation to any alternative arrangements offered by the merchant but we will have no further liability to you.
