All tours and services can be booked directly with our office in Myanmar
All reservation requests are normally confirmed by returning e-mail or fax. In case immediate confirmation cannot be made, information about the booking status will be advised.
Myanmar is a country where services are guaranteed only if they are fully prepaid. We, therefore, have to prepay all services confirmed to you and, for this reason, we request you kindly to make a full prepayment to us. Payment should be made by bank transfer to our bank (we will send you the bank details after the booking confirmation).
GENERAL PAYMENT POLICY
Please find our general payment policy in below.
Deposit Payment – 30% deposit of total payment (after tour confirmed)
Final Payment – 70% (30 days prior to arrival)
All the bank transfer charges and fees are to be paid by the clients.
Full payment of all services is required 30 days prior to arrival. Names as per passport, passport numbers and nationality are required at time of booking.
DEPOSITS AND BOOKING CONDITIONS
Due to high demand and short supply of hotel accommodation in Myanmar, some hotels require non-refundable deposits in order to guarantee the accommodation. Please be aware that these regulations could not be in line with the consumer law valid in your country. Although we make every effort to avoid this, these regulations are at times unchangeable.
Cancellation and deposit policies might change depending on the occupancy of the hotel. Our reservations department will inform you at the time of booking.
Exact deposit conditions will be advised at the time of confirmation and we advise following the deposit policy given to avoid cancellation of confirmed accommodation.
