1.Your commitment to us:
1:1 Booking

All applications for travel with Salaam Tours Limited must be completed using our manual or online booking forms. Both forms of booking must be accompanied by a non-refundable deposit of £700 for each applicant, (this includes bookings for Hajj and Umrah). In the case of online bookings, no firm commitment is made until your deposit has been received. Once your deposit has been received, we will send you your booking confirmation. No commitment will be entered into between the applicant and Salaam Tours Limited unless a confirmation invoice has been received. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure that you are in receipt of a valid confirmation invoice.

1:2 Payment of balance
The balance of your chosen Hajj or Umrah package must be paid in full at least four (4) weeks prior to the departure date, (in the case of overseas applications, the period is six (6) weeks allowing for change of currency etc.) If the balance of the package price is not paid within the time frame mentioned above, Salaam Tours Limited reserves the right to cancel the booking without notice. ANY ADDITIONAL COST ADDED FROM THE SAUDI HAJJ MINISTRY FOR THE DURATION OF HAJJ WILL NEED TO BE COVERED BY THE PILGRIM & NOT SALAAM TOURS LIMITED.

1:3 Documents
It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide all necessary documentation for processing at least four (4) weeks prior to departure. Any applicant (who has provided the necessary documentation) that fails to pay his/her balance before the four-week deadline , will have such documentation returned to them and will forfeit the deposit, as stated in para. 1:1 above. Applicants who have paid the balance and do not supply the correct documentation before the deadline date will have their booking cancelled forfeiting their deposit and part of the package cost as stated in para. 1.6 below.

1:4 Behaviour
All applicants who travel with Salaam Tours Limited are expected to behave in a manner which is conducive to the journey that they are making. Under no circumstances should travellers be involved in brawls, fights or arguments, or conduct behaviour which may be seen as detrimental to the image of a person under-taking Hajj or Umrah travel or any travel. Under no circumstances should anyone conduct themselves in a manner which causes distress, annoyance or harm to themselves or other members of the group or cause damage to persons or property. If any member of the group is found to be behaving in such a manner, only one warning will be given, which if not adhered to, will result in the eviction of the said person from the hotel/accommodation suite and the return to the airport for direct return flights to the country of origin. Under no circumstances will a refund of any proportion be given in such a case.

1:5 Change of booking
Any applicant wishing to change their booking dates, to any other which Salaam Tours Limited have available at the said time of booking or shortly thereafter, must do so at least 8 weeks prior to departure. (Please note, if information about subsequent trips is unavailable at the time of booking and later travel options are then advertised, this is also covered. However, bookings for Hajj are not subject to this clause). Alteration fees of £10.00 will be charged for each person who makes a change in their booking options. Persons wishing to add subsequent members to their family group may do so, but will still be subjected to the same booking and deposit requirements as stated above, providing that there are places available on the required package.

However, as the brochure and its corresponding information are prepared in advance, there may be circumstances where an advertised facility may be altered or no longer available, which will be for reasons beyond our control.

Rooms and furniture facilities may be altered without notice, particularly during peak times, such as Hajj or Ramadan. It is essential that your expectations of the Pilgrimage do not surpass what we have outlined in our brochure or exceed the limitations of Salaam Tours Limited. We accept no liability for any disappointment which may arise as a result of your unrealistic views and expectations. Further, the operation of certain amenities and facilities may be subject to local laws or religious pilgrimage.

In such circumstances, we accept no liability for these restrictions, neither do we accept any liability for loss or damage arising from the above. The operation and supervision of overseas property, transport and other services are subject to local laws, regulations, standards and codes of practice of individual countries.
