In order to complete a Booking the following steps are taken to ensure its validity:
When we place Service Elements on our Site, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase.
You do not make this offer until you press "Confirm Booking" on the payment page (entitled "Guest Details and Booking") of the Site.
Once you have done so you have made Akbar Travels of India Ltd. an offer (which cannot be withdrawn if you change your mind) to purchase the relevant Service Element(s) from the relevant Travel Supplier(s) (your "Booking"). We are free to accept your offer on behalf of the relevant Travel Supplier or to reject it, at our sole discretion.
The Akbar Travels of India Ltd. email confirmation is NOT the contractual acceptance of the Booking, but merely an acknowledgement that we have received your offer. We will need to check the availability of the relevant Service Element(s).
If the relevant Service Element is available, your Booking will be processed. The contract pertaining to the relevant Booking is formed when payment in full has been received.

ADVICE TO INTERNATIONAL PASSENGERS
Passengers embarking upon a journey involving an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of departure are advised that the provisions of treaties known as the Montreal Convention and the Warsaw Convention may be applicable to their entire journey including the portion entirely within the countries of departure and destination. The Conventions govern and in most cases limits the liability of carriers to passengers for death or personal injury. Additional protection can usually be obtained by purchasing insurance from a private company. Such insurance is not affected by any limitation of the carrier's liability under the Montreal Convention or Warsaw Convention. For further information please consult your airline or insurance company representative. For more details about the carrier's liability under the Warsaw convention, please click here.

CREDIT/DEBIT CARD PAYMENTS
All credit cards must have a verifiable US, Canadian or other country billing address. To see the list of countries where credit cards are accepted, click the drop menu down in the check-out page. If your credit card is declined for any reason, we will notify you within 72 hours. Simply submitting the credit card does not automatically guarantee ticketing. Akbar Travels of India Ltd. bears no responsibility in the event your credit or debit card is not approved or charged. There can be many reasons why your credit or debit card may not have been approved or charged. Examples of these maybe: airline could not confirm the booking, fare increased since payment information was submitted and prior to ticketing; or sufficient funds not available on the credit card. In such instances where the fare may have increased, you will be provided with alternate options and you have the right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. When the booking is ticketed at the cost originally quoted to you the ticket becomes non-refundable and non- cancellable. Akbar Travels of India Ltd. uses stringent safety measures for credit card payment processing. Fraudulent transactions, if any, are reported to airport security, airlines and other federal and state law enforcement. You agree to be liable for any and all credit card payments and you agree not to dispute charges after the purchase has been made and your tickets and/or other products have been delivered by email confirmation or have been shipped to you. You agree to reimburse Akbar Travels of India Ltd. in cases of charge back or credit card disputes where you have genuinely purchased a service on our website. Most credit card transactions over the phone to our Customer Service Department are recorded and are available as evidence in case of any dispute. Online credit card transactions are authorized at the time a user or anyone acting on their behalf accepts these Terms & Conditions and continues with the purchase. All bookings and fares are not guaranteed until ticketed by the supplier. For hotels, car rentals, and vacation packages, bookings are not guaranteed unless you receive a confirmation number by email. When certain transactions are determined to be high risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it's safe to process them. In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
CREDIT CARD DECLINES
If your credit card declines at the time of processing your transaction, we will make all efforts to notify you by email within 72 hours.

Most airlines now charge baggage fees even for the first bag checked-in, we recommend traveling light to reduce these costs.

For international travel (including domestic portions of international journeys) different liability limitations apply to the loss, delay, or damage to baggage. If the Montreal Convention applies, the limit is 1,131 Special Drawing Rights (approximately $1700) per passenger unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid.

AIRLINES SCHEDULE CHANGES/FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS
Airline Policy on Schedule Changes: All Airlines have differing rules and policies regarding schedule changes, which are beyond our control. Due to the operational needs of each airline, changes are often made to the flights that they are currently operating. Often these changes are a prediction of travel needs for a future dates but can also reflect same day changes. Types of changes could be: flight number changes, time changes, routing, date changes and or cancellations. Cancellations include when an airline has stopped or temporarily canceled service to certain cities, or stopped service on certain days of the week. Cancellations: Reasons for cancellations or schedule changes may include: peak or high travel seasons; low travel season; airport terminal or gate changes; fuel prices; civil unrest; natural disasters – volcano, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.; and bankruptcy. Akbar Travels of India Ltd. does not assume any liability whatsoever for cancelled flights, flights that are missed, or flights not connecting due to any scheduled changes made by the airlines.

Prior to Departure If an airline has a change to any of its flights within a 4 hour period of your original flight times, we will notify you of such change by email. We will attempt to contact you via other information provided by you, but; if we are unable to get in touch with you, our email will serve as final notice.

OVERBOOKING OF FLIGHTS
Airline flights may be overbooked, and there is a slight chance that a seat will not be available on a flight for which a person has a confirmed reservation. If the flight is overbooked, no one will be denied a seat until airline personnel first ask for volunteers willing to give up their reservation in exchange for compensation of the airline's choosing. If there are not enough volunteers, the airline may deny boarding to other persons in accordance with its particular boarding priority. With few exceptions, including failure to comply with the carrier's check-in deadline (which are available upon request from the air carrier), persons denied boarding involuntarily are entitled to compensation from the airline. The complete rules for the payment of compensation and each airline's boarding priorities are available at all airport ticket counters and boarding locations.
