Tripbeam does not hold the right to specify the type of aircraft that would be used by any airline. Also, Tripbeam has no power over the extra charges levied by a certain airport or airline. Tripbeam is also not responsible for any kind of losses incurred due to flight cancellations, changed routes, or seats. The airlines have right over adjustments of flight timings and schedules. Tripbeam cannot be held responsible for such changes and will not provide refunds for missed flights due to such irregularities.
In case of a stop-over, if the second flight is scheduled to take off from another airport, the travel to the second airport will be at your own expense. Tripbeam will not reimburse you for that, and will not have any liability in case you miss the next flight.
Tripbeam will not take any responsibility in the event of delays, or timetable shifts arising from labor disputes, strikes or weather issues.

All tour programmes as well as tour elements are bound by laws, rules & regulations during the entire tour and back. The Organization would have no responsibility in regards to any condition that is brought about by such laws, or due to the act of God.
Problems related to the issuance of e-tickets
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has imposed new rules, from 1st of June 1st, 2008, regarding the issue of travel tickets. According to the rules, airlines and booking agencies are under the obligation of issuing travel tickets only via the electronic means,i.e., as an ‘e-ticket.’
It is therefore important for the customer to be in regular correspondence with Tripbeam on E-mail and make sure that he receives the tickets via the mail.
Failure to check-in
Failure to check-in on time, by default, result in canceling the return flight too. We advise you to contact us to work out on possibilities, if you want to still keep the return flight open; the decision however remains with the airline . We can only intervene.No refunds will be made in case the cancellations are made by the company.
The return must be re-confirmed within 72 hours of the time of departure. This is a necessary action because if you fail to re-confirm, the airline does not guarantee to hold the allotted seat for you.Tripbeam makes it a point to warn you before hand, and cannot be held liable if you fail to re-confirm your return flight.
Tripbeam takes no responsibility concerning any loss or damage to your personal belongings, during the transit. The airline is liable to you for your baggage under certain terms and conditions. Thus, any problem regarding the luggage should be sorted out with the airlines itself. It is also recommended that you have all your belongings covered under insurance.
Babies and Infants
Infants ( of 2 years or less) are not to occupy a full seat; the cost of the ticket is generally 10% of one seat ticket. A few flights offer reduction on ticket charges for children in the age group of 2 to 11 years.
There are certain restrictions on pregnant travelers to fly ; these vary from one airline to another. It is the responsibility of the customer to check these details beforehand.Tripbeam will not be responsible for any any fee cancellations once the ticket is booked.
Medical and Physical Condition
The traveler ensures that he is in good physical and mental condition to make the journey by air. He has furnished true medical documents and takes the responsibility of any unwarranted complication arising during the flight. Tripbeam assumes no responsibility of providing any sort of medical care on the flight and any charges levied by the airline over medical assistance will be borne by the traveler. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY RISKS AND COSTS INVOLVED, if at all you receive any medical support during your air flight journey.
