1) TOUR PACKAGES
Athletes’ Journey is committed to offer goods & services of outstanding quality and tour descriptions of highest accuracy. Athletes’ Journey reserves the right to amend tour packages as may become necessary in situations that are beyond its control, such as third-party amendments, currency fluctuations, increments in taxes and fuel surcharge, or others. In such cases Athletes’ Journey will provide its clients with immediate updates on individual package components, itineraries, etc. Published and promotional package prices and verbal quotes are of indicative nature. Definite tour fares, goods and services provided are subject to written confirmation by Athletes’ Journey.
2) Reservation and Booking
Booking of a tour package is constituted by payment of a deposit of Sin$600 to Sin$1000/runner (depending on the respective event) of the quoted total fare. By paying a deposit the client agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth herein.
The deposits for some tours will be higher, and will be advised at the time of booking.
Payments may be made by PayPal, credit card, bank transfer or cheque. Credit card fees and bank charges are to be paid for by the client. Receipt of full payment is required by the deadline stipulated in the customized quote and invoice. Receipt of a cheque or crediting of a bank transfer determines the date of payment. Late or incomplete payments may incur additional fees or result in the cancellation of booking under the conditions set forth in section 4.
Cancellations of booking must be received and confirmed in writing (email). All payments are refundable, subject to S$100 administration fee, based on the timeline of the respective events/races. There is no refund 4 months (and/or the date stated in the booking offer), prior to the event date.
Cancellation policy may vary for customized tour packages that deviate from the standard package, such as personalized flight schedules and others. Exceptions to the cancellation policy are at the sole discretion of Athletes’ Journey LLP.
5) TRAVEL, MEDICAL & PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE
It is the client’s responsibility to arrange an adequate travel, medical & personal accident insurance coverage for the entire duration of travel.

If you would like to know the list of insurers who are able to provide that aspect of insurance, you can go to the Singapore Tourism Board website for the information: https://stb.gov.sg/industries/travel-agents/Documents/TInsurers.pdf. Athletes’ Journey reserves the right to request from its clients corresponding insurance documentation at any time. Athletes’ Journey recommends travel insurance with cancelation coverage.
