Shiva travel shall not be liable for failure of travel service suppliers, including but not limited to airlines to perform the services offered by such suppliers. Shiva travel, in providing travel management services, does not guarantee or insure the services to be provided by any supplier, the financial position of such suppliers or the reimbursement to you from any loss experienced as a result of the financial condition of such supplier. In the event that a supplier defaults prior to providing the service to you for which payment has been made, the sole recourse for refund shall be with the defaulting supplier, from insurance covering such defaults if any or from other responsible third party unless such was caused by Shiva travel.
In those situations in which a supplier defaults prior to providing services you may pursue any recourse against the supplier for refund, which may be permitted by law or statute. Shiva travel warrants that it provides the highest standards of service in the trade and will use appropriate care in selecting suppliers so as to protect you from such default.
Except as expressly stated herein, Shiva travel assumes no responsibility for actions relating to travel services beyond the control of Shiva travel or its employees. Shiva travel is not responsible or liable for any act, error, omission, injury, loss, accident, damage, delay, nonperformance, irregularity, or any consequence thereof, which may be occasioned through neglect, or default or any other act or inaction of any supplier of Travel products. Shiva travel shall not be liable for any fluctuation in price or change in schedule or equipment or accommodations for any travel service, which occurs subsequent to payment for such service.
Shiva travel acts as a service bureau that provides value added service to retail travel agents and consumers. Shiva travel has no control over and assumes no liability for the actions of the suppliers from whom it obtains Travel products.
Once tickets have been issued there may be a penalty involved for refunds. We do not have control over printed prices on the tickets, although some tickets may have BT (Bulk fare) printed on them, some may have a specific value on them, which may be different (lower or higher) than the fare collected.
Discounts offered may vary depending on a number of factors including Airlines utilized, class of service, destination, time of year (low, mid or high season), advance notice provided, minimum stay requirements fulfilled and flight load.

For your convenience, our use of the following terms in these Terms & Conditions shall have the meaning below:
"Service Element" - a singular product or service listed on the Site that can be booked independently of any other service. (e.g.: flight).
"Travel Supplier" - a vendor of one or more Service Elements. (e.g.: airlines). Shiva travel does not act as principal but makes arrangements with third-party vendor Travel Suppliers for Service Elements, all as defined above.
"Booking" - a negotiation process with the Travel Supplier carried out by you while using this Site for the purpose of obtaining one or more Service Elements that may result in a contract with the Travel Supplier at the time we receive full payment and accept your offer.
In order to complete a Booking the following steps are taken to ensure its validity:
When we place Service Elements on our Site, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase. You do not make this offer until you press "Book" on the payment page (entitled "Review Trip Details and Book") of the Site.
Once you have done so you have made Shiva travel an offer (which cannot be withdrawn if you change your mind) to purchase the relevant Service Element(s) from the relevant Travel Supplier(s) (your "Booking"). We are free to accept your offer on behalf of the relevant Travel Supplier or to reject it, at our sole discretion.
The Shiva travel email confirmation is NOT the contractual acceptance of the Booking, but merely an acknowledgement that we have received your offer. We will need to check the availability of the relevant Service Element(s).
If the relevant Service Element is available, your Booking will be processed. The contract pertaining to the relevant Booking is formed when payment in full has been received.
The contract between you and the relevant Travel Supplier will relate only to those Service Elements confirmed by email with ticket numbers in case of air.
The terms of your Booking (such as price, availability and/or dates of travel) are not guaranteed until the contract is formed between you and the Travel Supplier and a ticket has been issued and confirmed by the Travel Supplier. Please note that once you have completed the Booking stage you can only cancel or change the details (such as names or destinations) of your Booking at our sole discretion and in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
These Booking processes will apply to any of our individual Service Element's Terms & Conditions set out below. We reserve the right to change the Booking process at any time, with changes automatically taking effect from the date such changes are posted on the Site.
At all times throughout your trip a government-issued photo ID is required for security checks at airports as deemed necessary by the relevant Travel Suppliers.
In addition to the required government-issued ID as stated above, proof of citizenship (Passport) is required for international travel (for most countries outside of the United States). Please note that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that you meet the passport, visa, and/or health requirements of the countries you wish to visit and those that you transit (even if it is for a simple flight change). Many countries require that your passport should be valid for a minimum period from the date of arrival into that country. For any questions regarding what the applicable minimum period is and any other conditions or passport/visa requirements for travel, you should contact the corresponding local consulate of the countries to which you are travelling.
Neither Shiva travel nor its affiliates accept any responsibility, and you will not be entitled to any refunds whatsoever, if you are denied boarding, delayed or deported due to non-fulfillment of the above.
- Government entry/exit fees may apply, depending on your destination.
- These are your sole responsibility and will be additional to your Booking charges.
- All travelers on your Booking (if more than one passenger) must travel on the same itinerary. Individual passengers cannot be added to, and/or deleted from your Booking.
Shiva travel reserves the right to correct errors in any advertised price and, if applicable, give you an option to either cancel the Booking or allow Shiva travel to collect an amount equal to any increase in price from your provided credit or debit card, prior to your departure.
- Each Service Element listed in your Booking is provided by the respective Travel Supplier.
- Frequent miles may or may not be available for any portion of your Booking. You must check this with the relevant Travel Supplier.
Once you have made your Booking, you cannot transfer or change the name(s) or destination(s) listed in your Booking.
Your Booking will be fulfilled on the delivery date set out in your ticket information email or, if no delivery date is specified, then on the date the ticket is issued, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The terms of this agreement incorporate by reference the terms of each airline's contract of carriage. Passengers may inspect the full text of the contract of carriage at the each airline's airport or city ticket offices. Passengers have the right, upon request to the airlines, to receive free of charge by mail or other delivery service the full text of the contract of carriage. The incorporated terms of the contract of carriage may include: (1) Limits on the airline's liability for personal injury or death of passengers, and for loss, damage, or delay of goods and baggage, including fragile or perishable goods; (2) Claim restrictions, including time periods within which passengers must file a claim or bring an action against the airline for its acts or omissions or those of its agents; (3) Rights of the airline to change terms of the contract; (4) Rules about reconfirmation of reservations, CHECK-IN times, and refusal to carry; (5) Rights of the airline and limitations concerning delay or failure to perform service, including schedule changes, substitution of alternate airline or aircraft, and rerouting.Pricing, Taxes/Fees, and Payment:Our total prices include all taxes and fees applicable to airfare in your Booking, unless stated otherwise in your ticket information email or in these Terms & Conditions. Additional fuel surcharges, security, baggage, seat reservation, and other applicable service charges may apply which will be charged by the relevant Travel Supplier at time of check-in. You are solely responsible for any such additional charges due to the Travel Supplier. If you have any questions about such charges, please contact the relevant Travel Supplier directly.
Payment must be made in full with a valid credit or debit card at the time of Booking. Shiva travel accepts all major credit or debit cards with a verifiable billing address. You hereby authorize Shiva travel and its authorized third party to process the charge to the credit or debit card you provide to us for the total amount of your Booking.
You may be required by the relevant Travel Supplier(s) to present a valid credit or debit card at the time of CHECK-IN at the hotel and/or at the pick-up location of the car rental company to provide confirmation of authorized card usage and/or to secure any additional charges. The cardholder must be a traveler listed on your Booking.
All offers, prices, and conditions of sale may be subject to:
- change without notice;
- advance purchase, eligibility, seating, or other limitations;
- travel days, dates, minimum or maximum stays, holidays, seasons, blackout dates, stopovers, and/or waitlisting restrictions;
- reservation validation limitations of up to one year (if any extension permitted, penalties/restrictions may apply);
- other conditions/restrictions; and
If your itinerary involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure, the provisions of a treaty known as the "Warsaw Convention" may be applicable to your entire trip, including any portion entirely within the country of origin or destination. The Warsaw Convention governs and may limit the liability of certain air carriers for death of or personal injury to passengers and/or loss of or damage to baggage.
A reservation is not complete until confirmed/ticketed. To protect our customers, we verify with the credit/debit card company that the billing address and credit card verification number you provided to us is accurate and that your debit/charge will be accepted. Until such information is verified, the fare is subject to change. We are not responsible for any transaction that is declined based upon a credit/debit card that is declined by the issuing company or a travel provider or if, for any reason, the debit/credit card billing address and/or credit card verification number cannot be verified in a timely manner, nor are we responsible for any changes in fare or any other charges that may occur during our verification process. In the event the fare selected is not available an approval code may have been issued on your credit card. If the transaction is not completed the approval code may temporarily credit the amount from your bank account.
Advice to International Passengers
Passengers embarking upon a journey involving an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of departure are advised that the provisions of treaties known as the Montreal Convention and the Warsaw Convention may be applicable to their entire journey including the portion entirely within the countries of departure and destination. The Conventions govern and in most cases limits the liability of carriers to passengers for death or personal injury. Additional protection can usually be obtained by purchasing insurance from a private company. Such insurance is not affected by any limitation of the carrier's liability under the Montreal Convention or Warsaw Convention. For further information please consult your airline or insurance company representative.
The Site provides links to other websites as a convenience to you, we do not endorse nor are we responsible for the contents of other websites. If you decide to access other websites you do so at your own risk.
Changes to Flights Already Purchased
All changes made to the itinerary are restricted as well as subject to airline fare rules, whichever is more restrictive; most of our tickets hotels/cars/packages/cruises do not allow any date or name changes after the booking is completed. Shiva travel does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, any bookings or reservations made or confirmed to you if the original itinerary has been changed by the supplier pursuant to customer's request.
Cancel and Exchange
Most of our airline tickets are 100% non-refundable. In certain cases where the airline may allow cancellations, a credit may be valid towards a future ticket purchase by the same traveler on the same airline. Usually the credit issued by the airline supplier has a specific expiration date, after which it cannot be used. We encourage you to discuss additional restrictions attached to your credit with a customer service agent. All such bookings where the cancellation may be permitted must be cancelled prior to the scheduled departure time of the first flight segment by calling our customer service center. We do not guarantee any cancellation. When you are ready to make your new booking and wish to use your airline credit, you will be required to the pay fare difference (if any), applicable airline penalties and any applicable Shiva travel post-ticketing fees. All such changes are governed by each airlines' fare rules, policies and procedures, which are not under our control.
No additional representation is made for our exchange fees except that an agent will assist you in locating your desired new flights and attempt to re-book the new flights based on availability and other factors.
Multiple Airline Itineraries
If your itinerary includes flights operated by more than one airline, please read carefully each such airline's terms and conditions, which can be found on each such airline's website. Each such airline will have its own restrictions, rules and fees. If one of these flights is affected by an airline change (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling) that causes a Customer to make changes to the other flight, the Customer may be responsible for any fees or ticket cost incurred for making changes to the unaffected flight. Such airlines may charge their own fees for changes, refunds, or if exchanges are requested. You are responsible for complying with each airline's terms and conditions, which may differ (for example, CHECK-IN times and limits on baggage size/weight). It is advisable you print your outbound and return portions of your e-ticket confirmation for all flights prior to travelling. You may be asked for proof of your return ticket at check-in.
Cancel and Refund
Most of our airline tickets are non-refundable after 24 hours of booking. For cancelling a flight booking, we would require an email requesting cancellation from the email address used at the time of the booking. We can accept refund requests only if the following conditions have been met:
- you have applied for a cancellation and refund with us and if the fare rules provide for cancellation and refunds
- you are not a "no show" ( most "no show" bookings are in-eligible for any waiver from suppliers for refund processing ) and
- we are able to secure waivers from suppliers to process this requested cancellation and refund.
We are unable to provide a specific time line for how long it may take for this requested refund to be processed. All refund requests are processed in a sequential format. Once you have provided our customer service agent with your cancellation request, we will then send you an email notification that your request has been received. This notification does not automatically qualify you for a refund. This only provides you with an acknowledgement of your request and provides you with a tracking number. Upon receipt of your request we will work with the suppliers such as airlines, HOTELS, car-rental companies to generate a waiver based on airline and other supplier rules and notify you of the supplier decision. Our services fees associated with the original travel reservation or booking are not refundable. Please note that we are dependent on the suppliers for receiving the requested refunds. Once the refund has been approved by the supplier it may take additional time for this to appear on your credit card statement. Generally, all suppliers will charge a penalty for refund. This entire process may take 60-90 days from receipt of your request to receiving credit on your statement. Apart from the airlines and other suppliers refund penalties, Shiva travel will charge a post-ticketing services fee, as applicable. All refund fees are charged on per ticket per person basis. These fees will only be assessed if a refund has been authorized by the supplier or a waiver has been received and when the airline/supplier rules permit such refunds. If such refund is not processed by the supplier, we will refund you our post-ticketing service fees applicable to your agent assisted refund request , but not our booking fees for the original travel reservation or booking.

Discount of Airfares
In accordance with the US Airline Deregulation Act, Open Sky Agreements, and subsequent codifications, discounting on air tickets is now legal.

The value of discount may vary based on fare type, availability, seasonality, referral source and destinations.

If you elect to decline this transaction, you will not be charged.

In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
Credit/Debit Card Payment Terms
- All credit cards must have verifiable US, Canadian or other countries' billing address.
- All bookings and fares are not guaranteed until ticketed.
- When you submit your credit or debit card for a purchase, we request an authorization for the amount of your anticipated transaction (placing a temporary "hold" on the funds). If for some reason we are unable to CONFIRM YOUR BOOKING, you will not be charged and we will request that such hold be released by your credit or debit card bank; until then, funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for other purposes.
- If your credit card is declined for any reason, we will notify you within 24 hours, simply submitting the credit card does not automatically guarantee ticketing.
- Shiva travel bears no responsibility in the event your credit or debit card is not approved or charged. There can be many reasons why your credit or debit card may not have been approved or charged. Examples of these maybe: Airline could not confirm the booking, fare increased since payment information was submitted and prior to ticketing or sufficient funds not available on the credit card. In such instances where the fare may have increased, you will be provided with alternate options and you have the right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. When the booking is ticketed at the cost originally quoted to you the ticket becomes non-refundable and non-cancellable.
- Shiva travel uses stringent safety measures for credit card payment processing. Fraudulent transactions, if any, are reported to airport security, airlines and other federal and state law enforcement.
- You agree to be liable for any and all credit card payments and you agree not to dispute charges after the purchase has been made and your tickets and/or other products have been delivered by email confirmation or have been shipped to you. You agree to reimburse Shiva travel in cases of charge back or credit card disputes where you have genuinely purchased a service on our website.
- Most credit card transactions over the phone to our Customer Service Department are recorded and are available as evidence in case of any dispute.
- Online credit card transactions are authorized at the time a user or anyone acting on their behalf accepts these terms and conditions and continues with the purchase.
- In order to provide you further safety, when certain transactions are determined to be high risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it's safe to process them. In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
Credit Card Declines
At the time of processing your transaction if your credit card declines, we will make all efforts to notify you by way of an email message within 3 business days. The transaction will not be processed if your credit card has declined. The FARE and any other BOOKING DETAILS are NOT GUARANTEED.If there is a fare change then you have a right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. There will be no service fees charged for this.

Baggage Policy on Connecting Flights
When there are two or more airlines involved for connecting flights then you may have to reclaim your bags at the connecting airport and CHECK-IN again to continue your journey. You are also advised that in these cases if you have excess baggage, you must pay any excess baggage fee assessed by each airline. Most airlines now charge baggage fees even for the first bag checked-In, we recommend traveling light to reduce these costs. To locate the fees on baggage CHECK-IN by airlines, please visit our "Baggage Fees" page or look for a link baggage fees on our website. Baggage fees range from 15 USD up to 100 USD or more depending on the size and weight of the bag and is per checked bag. These fees are to be paid directly to airline upon using such service. We try to keep the baggage fees table updated but we recommend you contact the airline directly for the latest fees on check baggage and policy as it relates to baggage.
For flights within the U.S., federal rules require any limit on an airline's baggage liability to be at least $3,300 per passenger. For international travel (including domestic portions of international journeys) different liability limitations apply to the loss, delay, or damage to baggage. If the Montreal Convention applies, the limit is 1,131 Special Drawing Rights (approximately $1700) per passenger unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. If the Warsaw Convention applies, the limit is approximately $9.07 per pound ($20.00 per kilogram) for checked baggage and $400 per passenger for unchecked baggage unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. Excess valuation may not be declared on certain types of valuable articles. Airlines assume no liability for fragile or perishable articles. Further information may be obtained from the airline.

Overbooking of Flights
Airline flights may be overbooked, and there is a slight chance that a seat will not be available on a flight for which a person has a confirmed reservation. If the flight is overbooked, no one will be denied a seat until airline personnel first ask for volunteers willing to give up their reservation in exchange for compensation of the airline's choosing. If there are not enough volunteers, the airline may deny boarding to other persons in accordance with its boarding priority. With few exceptions, including failure to comply with the carrier's CHECK-INdeadline (which are available upon request from the air carrier), persons denied boarding involuntarily are entitled to compensation from the airline. The complete rules for the payment of compensation and each airline's boarding priorities are available at all airport ticket counters and boarding locations. Some airlines do not apply these consumer protections to travel from some foreign countries, although other consumer protections may be available. Check with the airline or call us for details.
