Booking & Terms
All the payment can be made by Bank transfer, secure link by credit card or cash
All trips require a non-refundable deposit: 10-20 % of total amount. The deposits will confirm your reservation until 30 days prior to trip departure, at which time the balance of the trip is due. If the balance is not paid in full by the due date, we will regard the booking as cancelled.
Rights to refunds if you change or cancel your reservation are sometimes limited as we usually need to prepay some suppliers, and our negotiated rates are obtained through committing to advance payment. We strongly recommend you purchase trip insurance including trip cancellation and interruption insurance, which may reimburse you for cancellation penalties and extra trip expenses should a circumstance covered by the policy force you to cancel or interrupt your trip. In the event we cancel a trip, for any reason, all money for services described in the reserved itinerary, less airline ticket cancellation fees, will be refunded.
Any cancellation by a client must be made in writing (email, fax or other). The date on which the cancellation notice is received by the company or its agents will determine the applicable cancellation fee.
Refund checks will normally be mailed within three weeks of cancellation, assuming we experience no difficulty or delay in receiving the corresponding refund(s) from the suppliers involved.
Once travel commences there will be no refunds made on unused portions, nor is the price or value exchangeable for alternative services. Aven Thai prepays hotels and tour operators. If you should not use some portion of your reservation and the hotel or tour operator is willing to give you credit, you must have a signed letter from the manager requesting Aven Thai to issue a refund.
Unless indicated otherwise at or prior to the time of reservation, the following charges per person will apply in the event of cancellation prior to arrival:
Cancellation Charges As a general rule, unless otherwise stated, our policy is that all cancellation must be informed in writing either by email or fax. Cancellations will be charged as follows:
* More than 30 days prior to trip departure. No charge, however the deposit is non-refundable.
* 14-29 days before arrival: 10% charge
* 7-13 days before arrival: 20% charge
* 6- 4 days before arrival: 60% charge
* Within 3 days before arrival: 100% charge
