Can I get a early check in or a late check out?

The official check in and check out time is 1400 hours and 1200 hours respectively.

Since we have our tie ups with the hotels and resorts directly, your local point of contact will always be the hotel you are staying at (in the case of Maldives). In exceptional circumstances, when a service has been organized with an outside party, we will provide you with the local contact details. Usually, this is seldom required as all your activities, excursions, sightseeings etc would be organized by the hotel and its staff. In the event of an emergency, you can always contact us directly or have us contacted through the hotel.

How do I provide feedback about my trip?

We would love to get your views and feedback on the holiday package that you have avail through us. The best way is to drop us a mail at with subject “package feedback”. With your permission, we might even want to feature it on our website.
