If services have been prepaid by us as per the booking conditions of the hotels or any other vendor, there would be no refund on that part unless the hotel or vendor waives off the cancellation charges.
Please note that our cancellation policy is majorly guided by the hotels / suppliers and in unusual situations they do support us in modifying their terms and conditions on a case to case basis, also try and waive off the cancellation charges applicable if any and accordingly we extend the benefits to the customers.
