TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR KIMBER SPARKS TRAVEL
Please be sure to carefully read the following terms and conditions, as they incorporate the basis upon which bookings and service requests are accepted by Kimber Sparks Tours.
1. BOOKING ARRANGEMENTS:
Bookings need to be made a minimum of 10 business days in advance of departure date, and blackout dates including but not limited to Christmas and Easter, public and school holidays, etc. are all factors to take into consideration.
Booking of travel arrangements and payment thereof shall be considered proof that you have read our booking terms and conditions, and that you accept them without reservation as constituting the entire agreement between yourself and Kimber Sparks Tours, which can only be changed or amended – in writing, by Kimber Sparks Tours owner, Kimberly Sparks. The person making a booking shall be responsible for discovering these suppliers’ terms and conditions, and be deemed to have accepted our booking terms and conditions, on behalf of all persons named in the booking.
Kimber Sparks Tours does not own nor operate the services (airlines, accommodation, sightseeing, shipping, transfer service, vehicle hire companies, cruise lines whose transport, accommodation or meal services, etc.) that you may receive on your holiday, and therefore, we are not responsible for any changes or amendments that may make between you booking the tours through Kimber Sparks Tours and the date of your departures. Kimber Sparks Tours bookings, therefore, are subject to the terms, conditions, and limitations of such suppliers, some of which exclude or limit liability in respect of death, injury, delay, loss or damage to your person and/or effects. Kimber Sparks Tours recommends that all passengers take out adequate travel insurance coverage, which is valid for the entire duration of the holiday. We are happy to make recommendations on travel insurance companies we have worked with and would feel comfortable recommending.
2. CHANGES IN PRICE AND ITINERARIES
Prices are in US Dollars (except where noted otherwise), are correct at the time of publication, and are subject to change without notice. All prices are inclusive of taxes, unless otherwise stated. In the event we become aware of airline schedule changes, or those made by our suppliers – or for any reason beyond our control, we will make every effort to notify you promptly and do our best to rectify the situation.
All payments for booking any product offered by Kimber Sparks Tours website must be paid in full by Paypal, unless otherwise arranged via Kimber Sparks Tours owner, Kimber Sparks. You must, therefore, provide us with all the required details. Payments are laid out on the particular tours, and it is required that you understand, and agree to these conditions, at the time of booking.
4. PRICES AND INVOICE ERRORS:
Kimber Sparks Tours endeavors to ensure that all prices listed on the website are accurate and up-to-date.
5. CANCELLATIONS, ALTERATIONS, REFUNDS, AND REISSUES:
Kimber Sparks Tours bookings cannot be changed, and no refund is available at anytime for cancellations, including after the holiday has commenced, or in respect of any accommodation, meals or any other services not utilized – UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED and agreed to in writing, by the owner of Kimber Sparks Tours, Kimber Sparks. Please note that employees of any supplier are not authorized by Kimber Sparks Tours, at ANY time, to make any undertakings to a client, in respect of refunds or other matters.
6. WHAT IS ‘NOT’ INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE TOURS:
Additional baggage fees are not included for any tours/services offered through Kimber Sparks Tours, unless otherwise arranged at the time of booking.
Beverages, snacks, meals, and other food/drinks not detailed in the itinerary
Tips to tour directors, motor coach drivers and local city guides – unless otherwise specified on the website
Expenses, transportation costs, or other associated fees incurred in the event of illness before, during, or after a service purchased from Kimber Sparks Tours.
Kimber Sparks Tours is not liable for ANY expenses, costs, or loss incurred in relation to such matters. You agree not to hold Kimber Sparks Tours, as well as anyone associated with the company, responsible for any such things, as it is YOUR responsibility to purchase travel insurance separately.
Even though Kimber Sparks Tours is happy to offer suggestions, consumers are responsible for arranging travel insurance on their own. Kimber Sparks Tours highly recommends purchasing travel insurance against monetary loss through cancellations, delays, charges, baggage loss, medical emergencies and/or expenses, death, and theft. Kimber Sparks Tours makes no guarantees concerning reimbursements of funds associated with insurance claims, made by consumers with their preferred insurance provider. The client agrees not to hold Kimber Sparks Tours responsible for ANY decision made by insurers and/or suppliers, or requirements of any overseas country or governmental authority, or overseas laws and policies.
Where cabin baggage is concerned, the airline sets their own terms and conditions. Flights booked by Kimber Sparks Tours will not include baggage allowances more than what the airline has in place, unless otherwise discussed and agreed to with the owner of Kimber Sparks Tours, Kimber Sparks, upon the client purchasing services offered on the Kimber Sparks Tours website. Please note: size and weight restrictions apply for carry-on and checked baggage – passengers should check well in advance of the departure date. Any excess baggage charges not agreed to beforehand are solely the passenger’s financial responsibility. Kimber Sparks Tours is not responsible for excess baggage charges or baggage unable to be carried due to restrictions, with before or after the service is rendered.
9. ACCOMMODATION LOCATIONS AND DESCRIPTIONS/BEDDING ARRANGEMENTS:
Accommodation choices will vary often, and Kimber Sparks Tours has full permission to work with any and all service providers that we personally deem suitable for the particular services, tours, etc. that we offer. Although approximate locations may be indicated, it is not uncommon for last-minute changed to occur, due to circumstances beyond our control. Please note: any images used on this website are primarily for editorial purposes.
Specific bedding configuration cannot be guaranteed, even though Kimber Sparks Tours will work diligently to meet the wants/needs of the client. Prices include existing bedding in room only, which was agreed to at the time of booking. Any extra bedding requested by the consumer may incur additional costs, which will be the sole responsibility of the consumer. E.g. if you arrive at the accommodation and decide you would like to have a private room, or a room for you and your partner only, any arrangements made with the establishment that may result in additional costs, must be dealt with at that time between the client and the accommodation, and not result in additional fees for Kimber Sparks Tours in any way. This includes other changes or requests pertaining to bedding arrangements, such as separate beds, additional rollaway beds, etc. may be arranged at time of check-in and charges are payable direct to the accommodation supplier by the consumer, not Kimber Sparks Tours. Please note that the ‘Bedding Guide’ is provided purely as a guide, which may change, subject to renovations or other circumstances and cannot be controlled or guaranteed by Kimber Sparks Tours. Check-in and check-out times vary depending on the accommodation supplier, and any violations made on behalf of the client will be the sole financial responsibility of that particular client – not Kimber Sparks Tours.
10. CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT POLICIES:
To guarantee charges for incidental items, suppliers MAY require validation of a current credit card upon check-in. If this is the case, the consumer is solely responsible for any additional charges incurred during the stay that were not agreed upon between the client and Kimber Sparks Tours at the time of booking. i.e.: mini-bar, room service fees, etc.
11. ROOM BEDDING GUIDE:
Bedding is detailed on individually offered tours. If you have special requests, which are different to those detailed, Kimber Sparks Tours will do our best to accommodate your specific wishes at the time of booking, but no guarantees can be made.
12. HOLIDAY VARIATIONS:
If unforeseen circumstances – beyond our control, require us to make necessary changes to your holiday, we reserve the right to cancel or reschedule itineraries with as much notice as is possible. Prices may be updated throughout the year as Kimber Sparks Tours is advised, and those additional costs will be the responsibility of the client. E.g.: If you have a flight cancelled due to weather, maintenance, or any other reason deemed sufficient by the airline, Kimber Sparks Tours is not responsible in any way, and the tour is not obligated to be adjusted. Even though we will do our very best to accommodate any modifications that arise, it is noted that Kimber Sparks Travel is not obligated in any way. The client will be solely responsible for the costs involved, and any reimbursement issues or details should be handled directly with the travel insurance company selected by the client, and in no way with Kimber Sparks Tours.
13. Frequent Flyer Points: FREQUENT FLYER POINTS
Airfares may or may not offer Frequent Flyer points for bookings made through Kimber Sparks Tours. This decision rests solely with the airline, and is not – in any way, the responsibility of Kimber Sparks Tours. For further information regarding issues related to Frequent Flyer points, please contact the airline directly.
