Just so you know, all the information that follows applies to not one, not two, but all our platforms. While our priority is to make sure you have zero impact while changing plans, we also make sure that the services (visa, hotels, flights etc.) you had chosen are blocked with our service providers to create those wonderful memories. This means that for any change of plans, our service providers would charge us a flat fee based on their refund policy. It is these charges that we formulate as a refund policy, that's all! After issuance of vouchers, customized packages are non-refundable. In certain cases, our partners which include the airline, hotel and ground handlers may provide refunds specific to a package, in which case, we keep up the transparency and provide the refund to you after deduction of houseoftours.com refund charge of AED 150 per guest.
Cancellation due to visa rejection: It is the Embassy who takes the final decision when it comes to approving or rejecting your Visa. Unfortunately, they do not accept any influences while making this decision. This makes it difficult for us to refund any amount (if applicable) in case the Embassy has decided to reject your application (though we don’t like it when that happens). At your port of exit, it is the immigration officials who make the final decision about your immigration clearance and granting/ rejecting your visa. This makes it difficult for us to refund any amount (if applicable) if your travel is affected by these decisions (Again, we don’t like it when that happens).
