He came up with the idea of creating a site where the public could see people in the news. To implement this original plan, he called on Alfred Grevin, who was a cartoonist, designer and famous sculptor. The Grevin opened its doors on June 5th, 1882. It was an immediate success.

    A double room has either a single queen-size bed or two separate beds joint together. If you request for a room with a queen-size bed, the same would be provided subject to availability as most of the hotel rooms in Europe are twin-bedded. In case of non-availability of a room with a queen-size bed, a twin bedded-room would be given.


    TRIPLE ACCOMODATION
    We recommend a maximum of only three persons in one room. Triple rooms are usually no larger than twin rooms and the third bed is often a rollaway bed or cot placed in a twin room.


    CHILDREN ACCOMMODATION
    A child travelling for whom ‘without a bed’ charge has been paid would not be entitled to a separate bed in the hotel. In case ‘with bed’ charge has been paid for the child and you decide not to avail such facility whilst on the tour, you would not be entitled to any refund. In case you decide to seek an extra bed for the child booked on ‘without bed’ basis on the tour, this will be provided subject to availability and you shall be bound to pay any additional amount charged by the concerned hotel directly.

    Pre / Post Tour / Add on Extension Packages
    Pre / post tour accommodation / add on packages or extensions are available to you at special rates. You must ensure that you request your travel agent or our PA sales officer for the same at the time of booking your tour.

    Coach and Seating
    We generally engage air-conditioned / air-cooled luxury coaches but we are not responsible if the air-conditioning equipment malfunctions for any reason. On group tours, you are not allotted seat numbers as a seat rotation system is followed. You must follow the instructions of the Tour Manager in this regard.
    The average traveling time by coach is approximately 8 to 10 hours or more a day in Europe and 4 to 5 hours in U.S.A. under normal road conditions. Comfort stops are provided every 2-3 hours, after appropriate intervals. The foregoing timings are indicative only. Though some of the coaches are equipped with emergency washrooms, such a facility can be used only in case of a dire emergency.
    The coach drivers are bound by restrictions concerning maximum driving hours per day and per week and the itineraries are planned with regard to the same. It is therefore essential that the itineraries, schedules and timings are strictly adhered to by you so as to ensure that all the services can be duly provided. If you or any of your co-passengers misses any service due to unpunctuality, we shall not be liable to refund any amount. Further, we shall not be liable to refund any amount or pay any compensation / damages for any change in itinerary or for missing any service due to the unpunctuality or actions of your co-passengers.
    Please note that smoking, consumption of alcoholic beverages and snacks is strictly prohibited on coaches. Please keep the coach clean to avoid discomfort to yourself and other tour participants.
    Please take care not to leave behind any property in the coach while disembarking. The Company would not be responsible or liable in case of loss of such property under any circumstances.

    Baggage on Coach
    Please note that porterage is not included in the tour price. It is often difficult to get porters to assist as hotels may or may not provide this service and it is therefore advisable to use bags with wheels. Coaches have limited space for luggage and hence we permit only one suitcase and one handbag per person in the coach. The suitcase should be of a size of 158 cms. (width + length + height).

    Airlines
    We shall in no circumstances whatsoever be liable to your or any person travelling with you, for loss of baggage by the airline, failure to provide meal of your choice by the airline, denied boarding or down-gradation due to overbooking or any other reason, failure on the part of the airline to accommodate you despite having confirmed tickets, quality or quantity of meals offered by the airlines, flight delay or rescheduling, flight cancellation, changes of flight schedule or routing, change of airline mentioned at the time of booking. In these circumstances, we will not be liable for the injury, loss or inconvenience suffered by you but you will be free to pursue your remedies against the concerned airline.

    Baggage on Airline
    Airlines have restrictions on the kind of baggage, number and weight of baggage that you can carry and you will need to carefully read and understand the rules and regulations of the airline, in this regard.
    Please note that the weight restrictions noted may not be accurate or updated. You are requested to please refer to the baggage rules of the individual airlines, as the same get updated from time to time.
    We are not liable, in any manner, if you are unable to carry any baggage or if you have to pay any extra-charges due to restrictions imposed by the airline. You shall be liable to pay all such charges directly to the airline. Also, we are not liable for any loss or damage to baggage while it is in the custody of the airline.

    Airline Date Change before Departure
    If you are traveling on a ticket issued through Cox and Kings, and if you wish to travel in advance or return at a later date after the tour ends, then you must pay the applicable difference between the group airfare within the package holiday tour cost and the market airfare for the changed sector. The same will be quoted by us to you on your request. Over and above this you will also be required to pay an ‘Airline Seat Rebooking and Reservation Fee’ of USD 55 as applicable per person per sector, per change depending on the airline (subject to availability of seats and ticket validity).

    Please note that you will not be able to avail of the group transfers and accordingly you will have to make your own way to meet up with the group on arrival and / or to your next destination when your tour ends. We shall not be liable to refund any amount to you in this regard.

    Airline Date Change After Departure
    It is absolutely necessary to have your return air seats to Dubai confirmed prior to your departure from Dubai.

    If you wish to change the date of your return journey after departure from Dubai, you will have to pay a “Change in Reservation Fee” if any, directly to the airline, subject to availability of seats in the same booking class. This fee may range up to USD 205 or more per person and we will not be responsible for the same.

    Airline Confirmation And Re-Confirmation
    Though you may receive a confirmed air ticket for a particular sector, airlines often overbook seats, due to which the airline may offload even confirmed passengers and may accommodate them on a subsequent flight. We will not be responsible for any such offloading nor for any consequence of such offloading including delay, inconvenience or loss of tour services.

    Please note that in case you are returning on a later date after the tour ends, the responsibility to reconfirm air tickets 72 hours prior to the departure would be solely yours.

    You Are Responsible For Your Documents and Possessions
    You will have to take the risk and responsibility of all your luggage, belongings, currency, valuables, documents and personal effects (collectively 'baggage') at all times during the tour, whether during travel on the airline or during your stay in hotel or during your travel in coaches, while on excursions or otherwise.
    If you forget to carry or if you lose essential travel documents such as passport, visa, tickets etc., you may be compelled to curtail the tour and you may have to incur extra expenses, for which you alone shall be responsible.
    In view of what is stated above, please carefully note that:
    (1) We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage in respect of your baggage etc. or their contents whether due to theft, accident, negligence or otherwise;
    (2) We shall not be responsible / liable for any cancellation or curtailment of your tour compelled by any such loss of baggage etc. and we shall pay no compensation or refund to you;
    (3) Some coverage in respect of baggage loss or damage may be provided by insurance (see below the Insurance section).
    It is advisable that you do not carry valuables on the tour. However, if you carry any valuables, we recommend that you use all available facilities to keep them secure during your tour. In this regard, some hotels provide Safe Deposit Lockers (which may be charged separately). In case of airlines, we recommend that you declare your valuables to the airline at the time of check-in and pay an additional charge, as may be stipulated by the airline, to make the airline responsible for valuables. Without such declaration, airlines can invoke limitation of liability protections provided in international conventions and laws.
    If your baggage is lost or misplaced at any time during the course of your tour, it is your responsibility to take all appropriate actions to file complaints with the concerned authorities, including police, airline office etc. Please understand that as the Tour Manager is responsible for the whole group of tour participants, he may not be in a position to escort you to lodge a complaint with the authorities, as it could compromise the convenience and time of the group.
    Furthermore, Tour Managers / Assistants / Escorts are assisting the tourists throughout the tour and are not responsible for tourists' baggage or any kind of personal belongings. On the entire tour the tourists have to be responsible and carry the baggage on their own. Instructions as well as information of the tour are to be followed in the group tours and the tour manager / company is not responsible for any instructions overruled by the tourists and / or its consequences.

    Travel Documents and Clearances
    It shall be solely your responsibility to hold valid travel documents and statutory clearances, to enable you to travel on the tour such as passports, visas, confirmed air-tickets, insurance and medical insurance certificates and other statutory certificates including immigration clearance. Please note that your Passport must be valid for at least six months subsequent to the scheduled departure date of the tour. If you cancel the tour due to non-availability of the passport etc, you will be liable to pay cancellation charges.

    If you are unable to travel on the tour originally booked by you because either you could not get your visa in time or due to an error of the part of the embassy / consulate, an incorrect visa is issued to you, you shall have the option to postpone your tour to any other future date or transfer your tour to any other tour and in such case the amendment fee for shall apply, in addition to cancellation charges. If you decline to exercise this option of postponing your tour, the cancellation schedule shall apply.


    VISA GUIDANCE SERVICES

    You will be required to take the appropriate visas for going on the tour. It will be the sole responsibility of the guest to ensure that they have the right visa issued for their tour. The company does not take any responsibility for the issuance of the visa and or insurance of any of the guest. Non - utility of any of the tour services due to failure on the part of the guest for any reasons including clerical errors, loss of passport / documents, delay in issuance etc. whatsoever will attract the applicable cancellation charges.
    It is necessary for you to ensure that you have the appropriate passport, which is valid for at least six months after you return to your country of residence. For guests travelling to Malaysia, please ensure that the minimum validity of the passport should be atleast 9 months after your date of return to your country of residence. Furthermore, you will be required to take the appropriate visas for going on the tour.
    We provide you visa guidance services for which we will charge you. Once the Booking form is signed and Non refundable deposit is collected we can assist you with supporting Visa Letter if required at an additional cost of USD 15 per letter issued per family of four. Such charges may not include the actual visa charge. Please note that UK and USA visa will have to be obtained by you directly. Even if you do not get your visa, you will be liable to pay the applicable charges as they are non-refundable. If you already possess a visa or wish to do the visa / s on your own, you would be entitled only for the refund of actual visa / s cost and the portion of charges attributable to our service charges will still have to be paid by you.
    It is your responsibility to promptly furnish to us all documents required for application of your visas etc. latest by 45 days before the departure date. In fact, in the current scenario it would be far more prudent to furnish all documents at least four months before the departure date. Given the security concerns and the over-cautious approach adopted by embassies and consulates, visa processing can take quite long. Please note that we may receive documents submitted late but we are not responsible for rejection or non-receipt of visas due to inadequate or late submissions. You are required to furnish only genuine documentation.
    Granting / rejection of visas is the sole discretion of embassy / consulate. We only act as a facilitator for obtaining visas if applied from India only. You may be required to appear personally before embassy / consulate for any interview(s) / providing biometrics. The Company shall under no circumstance / s be held liable or responsible for rejection of visas and any other incidental or consequential loss, damage, cost or expense. You undertake not to proceed legally against the company for such rejection of visas, unless there is a manifest error committed by the company.
    We would not be responsible in any manner whatsoever for any clerical error done by the concerned embassy / consulate regarding the name, attachment of wrong photograph, duration and type of visa (single / multiple entry) or passport number. We always use services of reputed courier companies for the purpose of transmission of passports to the embassies / consulates and to our clients in various cities. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage whether direct, indirect, incidental or consequential caused due to transmission delays or loss of passport or documents in the course of transmission of documents by us to the embassy or to you or in the course of transmission of documents by the embassy / consulate to us. We would however, make best attempts to trace your documents or assist you in obtaining alternative / certified copies of the lost documents.
    If you are unable to travel on the tour originally booked by you because either you could not get your visa in time or due to an error of the part of the embassy / consulate, an incorrect visa is issued to you, you shall have the option to postpone your tour to any other future date or transfer your tour to any other tour and in such case the amendment fee shall apply, in addition to cancellation charges.
    Please note that if the rejection of visa is intimated by the embassy / consulate within the cancellation period specified in the section titled CANCELLATION OF BOOKING BY YOU then the cancellation charges as appearing in that section shall apply. Please further note that for the purpose of ascertaining the applicable cancellation rates, the cancellation would be deemed to have been made on the date we receive intimation of visa rejection from the consulate / embassy. Should you choose to re-apply after visa rejection, then you shall do so at your own risk and cost. If the visa is rejected a second time, the applicable cancellation rates shall be based on the date of receipt of intimation of the rejection of second visa application and so the charges shall be much higher than the rates which would have applied on the first rejection. Should we not receive any intimation from the consulate / embassy either accepting or rejecting a visa application before the departure date of your tour, the maximum cancellation charges shall apply. It is made clear that the cancellation charges shall apply in addition to the retention of visa service charges. You expressly agree not to dispute the foregoing.

Our actions in this regard may be guided not only by concerns for your health but also the convenience and health of the other tour participants.

    However, it is not our obligation to check your medical condition and if you suffer any injury or aggravation on the tour or if you are unable to enjoy / complete the whole or any part of the tour due to your medical conditions, we shall not be liable to compensate you nor to refund any amount to you nor to pay your medical expenses.
