Changes:

If you wish to change your reservation in any way, we will endeavor to accommodate these changes, but it may not always be possible to do so. All changes are subject to availability.

We reserve the right to change your reservation at any time. If we make a major change, we will advise the lead person on the reservation as soon as reasonably possible. A major change is one that we make to your arrangements before your departure that affects an essential term of your contract. Example of major changes includes (but is not limited to): a change of accommodation to that of a lower official classification for the whole or a major part of your Dubai Layover. If we make a major change, we will offer you a choice of the following options: (1) accept the changed arrangements, or(2) accept substitute arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or (3) cancel your reservation and receiving a full refund of all monies paid to us for it. You must tell us which of the above choices you wish to make within 72 hours of being informed of the major change we are making. If we do not receive notification from you about your choice within 72 hours, you are deemed to have accepted the option offered.

Payments:

Payments must be made by credit card. Some payments made by credit card may incur in surcharges.

Refunds:

No refund will be made for any part of your reservation that is not utilized (e.g., extra nights, breakfast, activities, or other services). Refund claims should be submitted within 30 days of completion of your Dubai Layover. Refunds for credit card payments may take up to 45 days.
