Deposits and payments
When you make a booking, we will request for the arrangements included in the itinerary to be booked. During this process, your booking is subject to availability and is not confirmed until we have emailed you a formal confirmation.
Tour Mandalay are bound by the terms and conditions of the operators we work with in Myanmar, many of whom require a deposit to secure their services. We require a deposit of 50% to confirm the arrangements and by making a booking you give consent for us to invoice you for these costs and agree to any associated penalties should you wish cancel the booking.
You agree to provide us with full passport details of all passengers travelling as is required by Myanmar law to register foreign tourists. You also agree to provide any other personal information we require to confirm the arrangements, including but not limited to, passport copies and body weights (this is necessary for hot air balloon flights for example). We will inform you of these requirements at the time of booking.
Final balance payment can be made on, or before your scheduled day of arrival into Myanmar. A formal invoice will be issued confirming this amount as soon as the above mentioned deposit amount has been received.
All payments should be made by wire transfer in US dollars and confirmation emailed to Tour Mandalay. We regret that we cannot accept payment by cheque, debit or credit cards at this time. Details required to facilitate the bank transfer will be advised at the time of booking (currently we are only able to accept payments made in USD, EUR and SGD).
Amendments made by us
Tour Mandalay reserve the right to change prices as a result of new or increased taxes and charges, changes in exchange rates or equivalent circumstances over which we have no control or could not have foreseen. We agree to absorb price increases of up to USD 25 per person, but amounts of more than USD 25 per person will be passed on to you. We try to be as flexible as possible with our policy and approach each situation on a case by case basis, hence are open to negotiation in the event of any such rate increases.
We also reserve the right to alter routes, itineraries or departure times without prior notice, should the necessity arise. In such circumstances, we will advise you of our course of action immediately.
Amendments made by you
We will do our best to fulfil all requests for changes to an itinerary. Tour Mandalay will not charge amendment fees at any stage of the quotation or booking process, however, some suppliers we work with do impose penalties for changes and we are obligated to pass these on to you. We will advise you of the applicable penalties before making any amendments.
Cancellation and refunds
For confirmed bookings:
- Hotels cancelled within 60 days of departure are non-refundable.

Any additional penalties by these parties will be passed on to you directly. If you request for a booking to be cancelled, we agree to advise the applicable charges and wait for your consent before proceeding.
We are responsible for ensuring proper measures are taken to protect the personal information you provide us.
