Each customer is required to register as a UPPERANTELOPE.COM user and create an online UPPERANTELOPE.COM account before purchasing tours through the Website and/or through our agents. During the registration, customer is required to provide a valid registration email address for us to identify each individual customer. Customer may give a different ordering email address for each tour purchase. If not provided, however, the registration email address will be used as the ordering email address. We will use, for customer’s convenience, the ordering email address to send order information and latest updates but we are not responsible for any loss caused by (1) the incorrectness of the ordering email address; (2) any delay or failure of the email delivery at the ordering email address; or (3) customer’s ignorance of the the emails received at the ordering email address. To maximize the communication timeliness, we concurrently post the order information and latest updates on customer’s online UPPERANTELOPE.COM account as we send them to customer’s ordering email address. We hereby assume customer’s awareness of such order information and latest updates immediately after they are posted into customer’s online account. We are then not responsible for any loss directly or indirectly caused by customer’s inability to access the internet or customer’s ignorance of these posts on his/her online account.
Once an order is placed, either through the Website or through our agents, a reservation process will be initiated within one business day. Within three business days after the reservation is started, we will confirm the tour reservation and send a confirmation notice to customer’s ordering email address and online UPPERANTELOPE.COM account. Payment of the tour will only be charged to the customer when the tour reservation is successful. If customer’s tour reservation is failed for any reason, we will cancel the order and no payment will be charged to the customer. However, we are not responsible for any other losses directly or indirectly related to such tour reservation failure.
UPPERANTELOPE.COM reserves the right to cancel the tour reservation for any reason at any time without prior notice. We will fully refund you the tour payment after the cancellation but we are not responsible for customer’s any other losses directly or indirectly related to such cancellation. UPPERANTELOPE.COM also reserves the right to adjust the reserved tour without prior notice if we believe, at our sole discretion, that the adjustment is necessary to complete the tour. We are not liable for customer’s any loss directly or indirectly caused by such adjustments and no payment dispute shall be made because of such adjustments.
To provide more flexibility and convenience, you may cancel or change your order, subjecting to our policy restrictions, either through the Website or through our agents. After you place the order and before we start the tour reservation process, you may cancel or change your order without paying any processing fee or penalty and your tour payment will be completely based on the changed order. Once the tour reservation is initialized and before we confirm your reservation, no order cancellation will be accepted and you will only be allowed to add or change the contact and/or flight information for tour participants in the order. After you order is confirmed, you may cancel or change your order while limitations processing fee and/or penalty may occur.
Once an order is confirmed, you can request to cancel the order only if (1) it is 8 days or more before the tour departure and (2) the order is not marked as non-cancelable. An absence or failure to show up on the scheduled date or time for a confirmed order is NO SHOW. No show is non-refundable. If a tour cancellation is accepted, your tour payment will be partially refunded to you after deducted by a cancellation penalty of: (1) 50% of the tour price if the cancellation is made between 8 and 14 days before the tour departure; (2) 25% of the tour price if the cancellation is made between 15 and 29 days before the tour departure; (3) 10% of the tour price if the cancellation is made 30 days or more before the tour departure. UPPERANTELOPE.COM reserves the right to reject any order cancellation if we believe, at our sole discretion, such cancellation is not appropriate. For example, any person failing to appear on the day of departure or during the trip is deemed automatic waiver of the right to the tour and shall not be refunded.
An order can be modified after it is confirmed only if (1) it is 8 days or more before the tour departure and (2) the order is not marked as non-changeable. And for those non-cancelable orders, if they are not marked as non-changeable, we only accept modifications in flight and/or tour participant’s contact information. Each modified order will initialize a new reservation process within one business day and a processing fee of $25 will be charged to the customer. However, if customer only adds or changes the flight and/or contact information and it is the first time for the customer to make such change in the order, the $25 processing fee may be waived. Before we confirm the modified order, no modification other than flight and/or contact information will be accepted for the order once the new reservation process is started. The reservation process will finish in three business days and we will send you a confirmation notice if the reservation is successfully confirmed. If the modified order cannot be confirmed for any reason, the previous confirmed order will be recovered as a valid order but the processing fee will not be refunded to the customer. We are not responsible for any loss directly or indirectly caused by such modification failures. If the modified order is successfully confirmed, the price difference will be charged to you if the modified order has higher price than the previous confirmed order. If the modified order has lower price that the previous confirmed order, the price difference will be partially refunded to you after deducted by a modification penalty of (1) 50% of the price difference if the modification is made between 8 and 14 days before the tour departure; (2) 25% of the price difference if the modification is made between 15 and 29 days before the tour departure; (3) 10% of the price difference if the modification is made 30 days or more before the tour departure. We reserve the right to reject any order modification if we believe, at our sole discretion, such modification is not appropriate.PASSPORT AND VISA
