2. Car + Driver + Hotels

In addition to Car + Driver (as described above), many of our guests prefer that we also arrange their hotel accommodations. Most prefer to stay in economy rooms (see below), which are neat & clean, with AC, TV, private bath with western style toilet, and a hot water geyser.

Accommodation Types

All tours offer 3 different accommodation options: economy, heritage and premium levels.

Economy: Comfortable and clean, approximately 2 stars.

All accommodation options include free breakfast (if the hotels are booked by us).

Your tour quote will include hotels in the Midrange, unless otherwise requested. Upgrades are available at an additional cost.

Train or Airline Booking

If your India travel plans include train or airline travel, you may choose to make your own bookings or we can make these arrangements for you. To book tickets, the following information is required for each passenger:
• Full name (as it appears on your passport)
• Age
• Passport number

Advance payment is required for most train and airline reservations, because most are non-refundable purchases.

Payment

We do not require a deposit for our Car + Driver option (unless the tour is to start from a city other than Delhi).
For our Car + Driver + Hotels option, our deposit requirements are based on accommodation prices: We require 10% on economy packages, 20% on heritage packages, 50% premium packages.

Deposit must be paid prior to commencement of your tour, the remaining balance can be paid at any time before the end of your tour. Driver's tip should be paid directly to your driver.
We require advance payment for non-refundable train and airline bookings, as well as some special arrangements.

Refunds: we endeavour to refund deposits where prior refundable hotels bookings are made. However some hotels in our premium package require full payment at the time of booking and do not give refunds for late cancellations.

We recommend all our guests take out private travel insurance in the event of unforeseen circumstances which require total cancellation.
