Booking Terms & Conditions

Trippyigloo.com (site, msite & app – collectively known as portal) is an aggregator of travel packages across categories like trekking, expedition, adventure sports etc. We closely work with the travel operators (who are directly responsible for full-filling the travel packages sold on our portal) and validate the entire operations process of these partners. Only if the operators meet certain standards and agree to provide basic amenities to our users (like water bottles on reaching the destination, support services like wifi etc.) do we certify them as TI Trusted partner and onboard them.

It is for this reason, our operators pricing might be 10% higher compared to the average pricing out there in the market. But this helps us ensure that we provide maximum customer care as some of these destinations are remote locations with minimal infrastructure. More so for international users who are coming from outside and might not know the nitty-gritties of the place and are completely relying on Trippyigloo & its trusted partner in ensuring maximum satisfaction & security.

Post interaction with user and their request quote or exploring the tour / packages, there are 2 types of bookings that can happen through Trippyigloo portal:

  1. Partial Payment: 10% to 20%, depending on trip/tour
    1. Remaining pending amount needs to be paid to the operator upon arrival at the destination
  2. Complete Payment: 100% payment of the trip price. This allows for discount upto 10% as operators are confirmed for arrival and won’t be subjected to cancellations

While some of the users might be adventurous to identify operators directly and book directly through them, the value which Trippyigloo brings are:

  1. 100% Service Guarantee
  2. Premium treatment since we are certified partners and vice-versa
  3. Support services like
    1. 24x7 Doctor guidance (through Chat, Email or Phone) – as some of these tours are risky or the weather might result in health issues
    2. Back-up in case of weather issues
    3. Help w.r.t flight & hotel bookings, including cabs or other modes of transport

Once the payment has been made, a unique Voucher ID / Order ID is generated, and is shared over email (and SMS + Whatsapp). The same is shared with operators and their acknowledgement that your booking is confirmed.

 

Refunds Terms & Conditions

While we would love to do 100% refund, the whole purpose of Trippyigloo is to generate sustainable ecosystem for travel & tour operators. Gives the nature of work & planning required, we do help provide with refunds in certain scenarios. For refund details (if applicable), always look at General Info. section of tours / packages, and be sure of when refund is applicable or not. In lot of cases 90% the amount if refundable if the cancellation happens 30 days in advance (as this industry needs 30 days of pre-planning). If duration left is less than 30 days, then case to case basis, we work with operators to ensure that between 50%-75% of the money is refunded. If the cancellation happens less than 10 days in advance, then 5%-10% of the money will be refunded. Please check the trip / tour / packages detail page to understand the refund criteria.
