Please read the following terms and conditions carefully, as they incorporate the basis upon which bookings are accepted by Singapore Airlines Holidays.
Singapore Airlines Holidays and www.siaholidays.com.au is operated by Wendy Wu Tours Pty Ltd ABN 87 082 688 202.
Please note that pricing is valid for departures to 31 March 2015 unless otherwise stated and is subject to availability at the time of booking.
In these booking conditions Wendy Wu Tours Pty Ltd and entities that are related or affiliated with it in the provision of the services it agrees to provide (where the context admits, together with its and their employees and agents) are included in the expressions the "Company", "Singapore Airlines Holidays", "we", "our" or "us" and a person taking advantage of the services offered by Singapore Airlines Holidays, all other persons (if any) included with that person in the booking and that person's or those persons' travel agent (if any) are included in the expression "you", "your", a "customer" or "passenger".
Booking of travel arrangements and payment of a deposit thereof shall be considered proof that you have read our booking terms and conditions and that you accept them without reservation as constituting the entire agreement between yourself and the Company which can only be varied by an officer of Singapore Airlines Holidays in writing. The person making a booking shall be deemed to have accepted our booking terms and conditions on behalf of all persons named in the booking. The Company does not own nor operate the airlines, hotels, sightseeing, shipping, transfer or vehicle hire companies or cruise lines (herein called "suppliers") whose transport, accommodation or meal services you may receive on your holiday. The Company reserves the right to pass on any costs imposed by airlines for ticketing plus any fees. All holiday components sold by the Company are provided by reputable suppliers, which operate in accordance with the standards set down by their own local authorities. The Company bookings therefore are subject to the terms, conditions and limitations of such suppliers, some of which exclude or limit liability in respect of death, injury, delay, loss or damage to your person and/or effects. The Company recommends that all passengers take out adequate travel insurance cover valid for the entire duration of the holiday.
The durations for short breaks, extensions and tours advertised on this website are based on a period of days to allow you to plan with ease. Overseas holidays may well require an overnight flight and therefore one day may simply be your journey home to Australia. Holidays from Perth may be one day less in duration due to flight times and connections being shorter. Please refer to the specific itineraries and the final quote from our reservations team.
Please submit a copy of your passport together with a deposit as specified to Singapore Airlines Holidays or your travel agent to arrive within 3 days of receiving our confirmation that the company is holding arrangements for you.
FLIGHT WITH STOPOVER DEPOSIT: $150 per person
HOLIDAY PACKAGE OR TOUR DEPOSIT: $195 per person

Singapore Airlines Holidays reserves the right to request a partial payment of the final balance more than 60 days prior to departure (e.g. airfare portion) in the event that airline tickets need to be issued by our office or by our operators overseas due to airline ticketing time limits.
The price of your holiday is only guaranteed once full payment is received.

Since 2004 all airlines servicing flights to Asia have been charging a fuel levy surcharge, on top of the normal airline ticket price, in order to cover the increased cost of aviation fuel. As fuel prices have fluctuated, so too has the amount the airlines charge for this levy. This amount is detailed against every short stay or tour featured in our brochure/on this website (where flights are included) and will also be advised to you at the time of your booking and is subject to change until your airline ticket is issued.
Airlines featured on this website or in our brochure do not by virtue of their endorsement represent themselves either as contracting with any purchaser of a holiday from Singapore Airlines Holidays, or as having any legal relationship with such a purchaser. Frequent flyer miles may not be accrued on some packaged fares. For details, contact our office
Shopping can be fun and entertaining, especially in local markets, where many copies of international brand names can be purchased for next to nothing. However, Singapore Airlines Holidays, its staff and employees are neither qualified nor permitted to ensure or guarantee the quality or value of any goods purchased or the suitability of any retail outlets visited and the security of using a credit card to purchase such goods. In all cases the purchasing of goods and the use of a credit card for those transactions is entirely at the customer’s own risk and at all times the customer must use their own discretion.
Please note that seatbelts are not compulsory by law in many countries in Asia and therefore the local people largely choose not to wear them. For this reason local operators may or may not have seatbelts in vehicles or they may be hidden underneath protective seat covers. It is recommended that where seatbelts are available customers must use them and remain seated at all times while the vehicle is moving. As such, customers acknowledge that seatbelts may not be available and therefore travel at their own risk.
Lifejackets are provided on water transfers in the Maldives. It is the responsibility of our customers to wear them and act responsibly.
Customers warrant that they shall not make any claim howsoever arising for injury or damage in respect of, arising from or contributed to by the absence of seatbelts or failure to wear lifejackets and hereby release Singapore Airlines Holidays from all such claims.

Some countries may refuse entry because of your health, condition, or other circumstances or for other reasons, or may detain, expel or repatriate you. You should check with the embassies or consulates or other authorities of the countries in which you intend to travel for any health, entry or visa requirements that are applicable and you should make the appropriate disclosures as required.
