Please note, if you don’t make the payment right away, the price may change and will be calculated on a real-time basis upon our receipt of your payment.
2. Cancellation and refund
We understand that there is always a change of plan. If unfortunately you have to cancel a reservation, we would appreciate a handwritten request from you at your earliest convenience. Once we receive your cancellation request, a refund will be made within 14 days. However, a cancellation fee may apply. Cancellation fee varies among different services, and will be deducted directly from your payment. The following content explains this matter in great detail.
Please note that Trendy Adventure is NOT responsible for any flight delays or cancellations due to an act or omission of the airline company or an act of God. A refund for any cancellation of the following travel services in China is NOT available either. Should you have any questions regarding our cancellation and refund policy, please contact us for assistance.
A. Service fee
Once a reservation is made, service fee will be included automatically. If you wish to cancel your reservation, a cancellation fee may apply. The cancellation fee is not only for the loss of services reserved, tourist attractions tickets and activities, but also for the services of the guides, drivers and agencies that were to designate. Cancellation fee is calculated based on how many days in advance (prior to the start of your reserved services) you make the cancellation. Specifics as below:
A refund is not available for bookings that are already in progress, neither for services missed due to clients’ late arrival or early departure. Should you have any emergency situations (e.g. family emergency, sudden illness), please contact our customer service and we will make arrangements for you at our best ability. If you’d like to postpone your travel plan with us, you could simply send us your request along with the supporting documents for your situation.
If you have authorized us to book your flights, please feel free to check with your trip advisor regarding the cancellation and refund policy. Not only it varies among different airlines, some cheaper flight tickets might be non-refundable. Different regulations usually apply to the flights from Mainland China to Hong Kong as well. If your flight booking is not through us, we recommend you to read the "terms and conditions" for different flights carefully before booking.
Cancellation insurance for domestic flights will not be automatically included in your booking. However, such insurance can be purchased upon request. If you would like a better policy on cancellation and refund and wish to purchase cancellation insurance, we would love to assist you on that.
C. Train tickets
If your train tickets have already been issued, it is very complicated to request a cancellation, especially for foreigners. We will do our best and make any arrangement possible; however, a cancellation fee may apply. Based on how far in advance you request for a cancellation, the cancellation fee can be calculated as below:
These terms are affective to domestic trains in Mainland China ONLY. Special cancellation policy may apply to trains for Hong Kong. If you have concerns regarding this matter, we recommend you confirm with your trip advisor before making a reservation.
Booking for standard hotels through Trendy Adventurer can be cancelled upon request, but a cancellation fee may apply. Based on how many days in advance a cancellation request is made, your cancellation fee can be calculated as below:
If you book B&Bs or guesthouses, cancellation and/or refund are unlikely to be available. Nevertheless, we will try our best to contact the landlord or business owners to get your refund partially or in its entirety.
3. Modification of travel plan
A. If you decide to change your travel plan
Before a reservation is made, any change of travel plan (e.g. tourist attractions, daily schedule, choice of hotel, etc.) can be made upon request without any additional service fee. However, please confirm with your trip advisor regarding the possibility of your desired change, as some changes may not be available.
If you wish to change your travel plan after a reservation is made, we promise to do our best on making any possible arrangement for you. However, since most services are scheduled weeks in advance, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be met. In addition, the price difference for the change of travel plan will be at your own cost.
B. If we have to change your route
We wish to stick with your original travel plan as much as you do, but sometimes necessary change need to be made, as there are a lot of factors that we have to take into account.
For the occurrence of extreme weather, new government restraints, terrorism or disease breakout, that are beyond our control, we are obligated to modify your travel plan accordingly. If such modification causes too big of a price difference, we will ask for your acceptance to proceed forward or cancel the travel.
If illness happens during your travel, we are obligated to make certain arrangements or changes as well. Trendy Adventurer reserves the right to adjust your itinerary for changes beyond our control.
C. Transfer of your travel
You can transfer your travel plan to someone else if you are unable to make it yourself, with no “transfer fee”. However, he or she must have documents needed for certain travel plan (i.e. permit, visa, passport, etc.). Please inform us with such situation at your earliest convenience so we could make some necessary arrangements accordingly.
Should you have any suggestions or concerns regarding your travel, please communicate with your trip advisor and/or local guide directly so we could make arrangements for you accordingly with no delay.
If you are still unsatisfied with our services and wish to make a complaint or request compensation, please send us a letter describing the situation by mail, fax, or email within 15 days after your trip (the end date). Relevant receipts and/or supporting documents must be enclosed with the letter. Claims made beyond 15 days after the end date of your travel will not be processed.
Your travel insurance is provided by the Travel Agency’s Liability Insurance, which is directly regulated by the National Tourism Administration of China. This insurance only covers accidents due to any services provided by the travel agency during your travel booked from Trendy Adventure. We recommend you to purchase your own accident insurance for the time spent outside your travel plan. If you use certain types of credit cards to buy flight tickets, travel insurance might be included. Please confirm with your bank agent and make inquiries accordingly.
