Your booking is with Unique Asia Travel & Tours, Siem Reap, Cambodia. We follow the requirements laid down by the laws of the Kingdom of Cambodia. All services and accommodations are subject to the laws and regulations of the Government of Cambodia and the relevant regional or local authorities in the areas where these services are rendered.
Inquiries and Quotations
Because most of the inquiries we receive ask for tailor-made trips we have no general conditions concerning what is included and not included in our price offers, it depends on your own specifications. So the quotation sent to you will itemize all the details included in the quoted price, according to your query in particular.
Usually our services for the quoted prices do not include charges for international flight tickets, visa fees, resignation cost insurance, foreign health insurance coverage, luggage insurance, beverages, tips, laundry service, telephone and internet usage, items from mini-bars, extra video camera fees at monuments, personal expenses for souvenirs etc.
Items mentioned in the itineraries specified as "optional" or "opportunities" are not included in the quoted prices. For these and other additional services an additional charge would be applicable.
Booking Confirmation and Invoice
If you inform us you decided to book the proposed tour accepting the price offer and booking terms, we will send you a confirmation email. Only after you approve this confirmation we will send the invoice, a contract comes into existence between you and Unique Asia Travel & Tours as soon as we have received your deposits.
By approving our confirmation you are as well accepting your sole responsibility of making sure that you and all other participants are healthy enough to take part in the scheduled tour programs. You also agree to accept the risks of traffic and road conditions in Cambodia not always matching standards of more developed countries.
Deposits and Receipt
An initial deposit of 25% of the tour costs is to be paid to our Unique Asia Travel & Tours Company promptly or only a few days after your final approval of the booking confirmation and after receiving the invoice.
But for bookings approved by you only within 10 days before tour start, the full amount of the tour costs will become payable immediately.
Overseas advance payment can be made by Wire Transfer to our bank account. Apart from SWIFT transfers we accept Western Union cash payments, too. The transfer processing charges levied by the financial institute need to be deposited in addition to the payment amount. We do not accept payments through cheque.
Once the deposit has been received by us an email with an attached receipt for the already paid amount will be sent to you, also finally confirming that we entered the contract.
In many cases (e.g. only rentals of vehicle with driver or chauffeur guide or special guesthouse packages without hotel reservations) we can offer an even more generous condition: You have to pay no deposits before arrival in Cambodia and the full amount is to be paid only after arrival in Cambodia and before tour start. In this case a contract comes into existence due to this full payment in Cambodia, and the receipt will be handed out to you personally and promptly instead of being sent online. But in case you booked our pick-up-service from the airport we will ask you to confirm your arrival (flight number and arrival date and time) more than one day before arrival, otherwise we cannot guarantee all preparations for your journey are completed properly before the contract comes into existence on the day of arrival.
In case you wish to modify your travel arrangement in any way after your confirmation invoice has already been issued, e.g. change the chosen departure date or accommodation or route agreed upon, we will do our best to arrange these modifications, but we cannot guarantee it will be practicable in each and every case and we cannot assure it will be possible without additional costs for you.
The balance of the payment must already be paid prior to the tour start by international wire transfer or cash upon arrival at an International Airport or at the border crossing point or in our office in Siem Reap. In case of payments through a Credit Card, the bank transaction charges, as applicable, would be levied over and above the total amount.
Instead of balance or full payment after arrival in Cambodia you can pay by international wire transfer, but not less than 4 workdays before tour start or by Western Union money transfer not less than 1 workday before tour start or, if available, to one of our authorized partner agencies in your own country not less than 4 workdays before arrival in Cambodia.
Upon payment of the full amount in Cambodia we will hand out a receipt for the balance to yourself or an authorized group member or, according to your wishes, send it to you attached to an email. We will additionally hand out a copy of the booked itinerary and guest comment sheets for every customer to you or the group leader.
We will not commence our services before receiving the full payment. Failure to pay the balance within the specified period will result in the cancellation of the booking, and a cancellation fee is to be paid to us as detailed below.
If you or any member of your group wishes to cancel your bookings, you must notify us in writing, by email or letter. In any case the date of cancellation will be at the date on which notice is received by Unique Asia Travel & Tours. If a person signed the confirmation approval the same person must also sign the cancellation.
As every cancellation incurs administrative costs and retention charges by the hotels, our cancellation charges will apply on the following scheme:
More than 28 days before tour start: deposit only, 25% of the costs, plus transaction charges
28-15 days before tour start: 50 % of the costs plus transaction charges
14-08 days before tour start: 75 % of the costs plus transaction charges
07 days or less before tour start: 90 % of the costs plus transaction charges
No-show: 100% of the costs plus transaction charges
In case only one or some members of your group wish to cancel their participation in your booked and approved and invoiced group tour, the cancellation charges per person are:
More than 28 days before tour start: 10% of per persons' costs, Plus transaction charges
28-15 days before tour start: 25 % of per persons' costs, Plus transaction charges
14-08 days before tour start: 50 % of per persons' costs, Plus transaction charges
07 days or less before tour start: 75 % of per persons' costs, plus transaction charges
No-show: 100% of per persons' costs plus transaction charges
