- You understand and agree that we cannot be held responsible for errors or omissions caused by incorrect or inadequate information supplied to us or by merchants.
- You agree to make your own enquiries in order to verify the information provided and to assess the suitability of products before your purchase.
All imagery and video on the Website are for representational purposes only.
Purchases made by you to purchase a travel offer are made under the specific terms and conditions listed in this agreement, together with any merchant-specific terms and conditions listed under the “Fine Print” of the offer, combined with any specific terms and conditions of the merchant. Promotion of offers on the site does not constitute a legally binding offer, but rather, are an invitation to treat.
We reserve the right to accept or reject your order for any reason (or no reason) at any time after that order has been made, including, but not limited to, the unavailability of any product or service, an error in the price or product or service description, or an error in your order.

There may be additional surcharges that are payable directly to the hotel which will be referred to in the relevant travel offer. Prices of products and services are current at the time of display. However, they are subject to change.
All payments must be received in full prior to a confirmation being issued. If your payment is not received or declined by your bank or credit card issuer, then, we cannot 'hold' packages on your behalf.
TRAVEL AGREEMENTS AND TRAVEL PRODUCTS
Booking of travel arrangements and payment for travel products (which can include both land and passage components) shall be considered proof that you have read our booking conditions, and that you accept them without any reservation as constituting the entire agreement between you and the Company which can only be varied by an officer of the Company in writing.
All travel products arranged by the Company are provided by Suppliers believed by the Company to be reputable and to operate in accordance with the standards set down by their own local authorities. Those travel products are provided subject to those Suppliers’ terms, conditions, and limitations (some of which may exclude or limit liability in respect of death, injury, delay, loss, or damage to passenger’s person and/or effects). The company accepts no responsibility for them and does not give any warranty or representation as to their standard. Any legal recourse you may have in respect of those travel products is against those Suppliers and not against the Company.
ACCESSIBILITY OF BOOKING CONFIRMATION
Your travel booking confirmation will be accessible via your account with us. It is agreed that the company is not liable for any loss suffered as a result of you being unable to download, print, or access a booking confirmation.
The Booking Confirmation you purchase is redeemable for the specified offer from the relevant supplier(s). The relevant supplier(s), and not Journey Bees, is the seller of the product. The supplier, solely, is responsible for honouring the package you purchase. Whilst we try (as much as possible) to ensure that we only promote those merchants who we feel will provide satisfactory services to you, we make no guarantee, warranty or representation regarding the standard of any product to be provided.
Booking confirmations cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash. Unless it is specifically stated otherwise, packages cannot be combined with any other gift certificates, packages or promotions. Not valid in conjunction with any other offer or on existing reservations. Any unused portion of the package is non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for either other services or cash.
The company is not responsible for lost or stolen booking confirmations or fraudulent use of the booking confirmation's unique reference number.
If you elect to book online through Instant Booking, you will be required to:
- Log into Journey Bees (using your email address and password)
- Click on the relevant deal
- Fill in the required fields including travel dates, party size, and any other options/extras.
- Once your booking is complete, click on ‘Continue’ to proceed to payment. Complete the payment process to complete your booking online.
You are responsible for making all payments due to us, even if your booking includes other parties. You must be at least 18 when the booking is made. A booking request can only be processed when you have provided us with payment authority (including credit/debit card details) and the booking has been accepted as set out below. We accept no liability for any errors that you make in the booking form.
Once you’ve completed your booking the relevant supplier will be notified of your selected dates and following confirmation of those dates, your credit/debit card will be debited in respect of the payment amount. You will then receive an email and invoice from Journey Bees confirming your reservation.
If it occurs that on the rare occasion, advertised dates for a particular deal are not available when your booking request is processed, Journey Bees will, if possible, offer you similar alternative arrangements. Where we are unable to find an alternative which is suitable for you, we will reimburse you for any payment made in respect of that booking.
Buy Now and Book Later
If you elect to buy a deal now but wish to book the particular dates at a later time you will be required to:
- Log into Journey Bees (using your email address and password)
- Click on the relevant deal
- Select the “Buy now / Book later” option
- You will get a confirmation email with details about the booking, however, the booking confirmation will not be generated;
- In order to book your trip, you will need to go to your account to book the dates.
In order to check-in, you will be required to produce a booking confirmation. In the event that you forget, lose, misplace, or have the confirmation stolen, you will be required to produce another copy of the confirmation. Neither Journey Bees, nor the merchant, will be required to provide any refund or a replacement booking or product, in the event that you fail to produce a travel booking confirmation upon request.
If you purchase a ‘Buy Now Book Later’ package this will be treated as a Journey Bees Credit. Please note that your credit will expire 12 months after the date of purchase (unless another travel validity period is stated by Journey Bees in writing, in which case the later date will apply).
CHANGE OF DATE
You are permitted to make one (1) change to the date of your booking provided that such change is made no less than 21 days prior to the commencement of your original booking date and provided you choose dates that are of an equal value and are also available on the Website. Any change to your booking date must be made on the Website and is strictly subject to availability. Note this Change of Booking Date option does not apply to all packages and does not apply to any Tour or Cruise or 'Last Minute' bookings. The company will not give any refund, in case you are not able to change your booking date as a result of alternate dates not being available or the Change of Date option not being available for your booking. Given the limited availability and last-minute nature of bookings, the free change of date policy does not apply to ‘Last Minute’ bookings and date changes are not permitted once a booking is made.
In order to check whether your package is eligible for a Change of Date, to check alternate dates, and to change your booking you will need to follow these steps.
- Log into your account on the Website and click CHANGE DATES NOW (if available for your booking)
- Select your new dates (which must be available and of equal value)
- Click “Confirm Dates” to confirm your change of date
- You will then be sent a revised booking confirmation
PURCHASE EXPIRY AND EXTENSION
The booking confirmation will expire on the date indicated on the travel booking confirmation. Expired purchases are non-refundable in whole or part. Once expired, purchases are no longer valid and therefore will not be honoured by the merchant.
In the event that a booking specifies a ‘book by’ date, all bookings must be made with the supplier prior to that date.
MERCHANT TERMS & CONDITIONS
Any Terms and Conditions of the supplier will always apply in addition to any specific terms of the offer stated by Journey Bees. For instance, if a merchant is not open on certain days, the package will not be redeemable on those days. Refunds are not payable in the event that you are unable to use a package on account of the merchant's usual terms and conditions.
Unless the offer specifically states otherwise, offers must be used over one continuous period and packages cannot be split. For example, if a package entitles you to four nights at a resort, those four nights must be used consecutively - you cannot use two nights over one period, and then two nights over another.
CHANGES IN PRICE AND ITINERARIES
Prices are in Indian Rupees (except where stated otherwise) are correct at the time of printing and are subject to change without notice. The price that is applicable at any time is that which is quoted at that time by the Company’s computer-based system. Some prices can only be guaranteed at the time the booking is made and may differ from that quoted as it is based on the “best available rate of the day from the supplier”.
Government taxes and charges imposed by Suppliers or third parties, including airline fuel surcharges, taxes, or ticketing fees are subject to change. If any increase in such taxes or charges or any currency fluctuation occurs vis a vis the price of your booking, then, the company reserves the right to adjust your price by including additional charges, together with any applicable service fee and GST, at any time prior to our issuing your travel documentation following receipt of the balance of your price.
We will notify you of schedule or price changes made by suppliers for any reason beyond our control. If the change or changes result in your travel arrangements costing more, or otherwise being materially different from those prior to the change or changes being effected (and in respect of which we have already accepted your full payment) you may rearrange them or withdraw and monies already paid will be refunded less any charges levied by Suppliers. Any quote given is an estimate only of price and is subject to written confirmation when accepted by a passenger within five (5) days of the quote being given. The Company reserves the right to correct any errors in amounts quoted, calculated, or billed in respect of a booking, even if full payment has been made.
PRICE AND INVOICE ERRORS
The Company tries to ensure that all prices listed on the Website are accurate and up-to-date. However, due to exchange rate fluctuations or increases in supplier rates, the Company reserves the right, up to and including the date of check-in, to adjust any fees, charges or prices as necessary, even if the travel products acquired have been paid for in full, to reflect such cost increases passed onto the Company.
The Company reserves the right to correct any errors in fees, charges, rates, or prices quoted or billed, even if the travel products acquired have been paid for in full.

ROOM BEDDING GUIDE
All prices on this website are based on the existing bedding in the room. If there are any requests for particular arrangements then they must be made at the time of booking (for example, twin share, separate beds, additional rollaway beds may be arranged at the time of check-in, and additional charges may be payable direct to the hotel). It is also possible that some hotels may have a maximum capacity for particular rooms.
PRICING, VALUE, AND SAVINGS
We calculate the percentage off in our deals based on the ‘rack rate’ of the room and the inclusions at the time the deal is live for the validity period of the deal (that’s hotel-speak for ‘Recommended Retail Price’). Hotels may change accommodation charges depending on peak seasons, low seasons, and events therefore we use the rack rate which is consistent throughout the year and 100% verifiable. The value and comparative savings have been determined based on the resort's published rack rates and the value of inclusions. Please be advised that rack rates may not be reflective of actual rates being charged, dependent on the timing and manner of your booking, and therefore are only indicative of the level of saving.
FREQUENT FLYER POINTS
Airfares may or may not attract Frequent Flyer points. This decision rests with the airline and is not the responsibility of the Company. For more information please contact the airline directly.
