We strive to ensure that all our customers have complete satisfaction with our products and services. We are an independent travel agent acting on behalf of many suppliers. It should be understood that all bookings are accepted on the following conditions.
Once a booking is made, the lead passenger guarantees that they have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking conditions. A contract will exist as soon as we issue our confirmation invoice. This demonstrates the lead passengers agreement to pay the balance outstanding (if applicable) and understanding that if the balance is not paid within the time scale, we reserve the right to cancel any arrangements made without notice. This contract is made on the terms of these booking conditions which are governed by English law and we both agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the English courts at all times.

It is a condition of booking with every tour operator that you have adequate insurance cover. Such insurance will ensure that you are properly covered against unexpected cancellation charges, medical costs that might be incurred while you're away, loss of money or belongings or personal liability claims.

If you require insurance cover, Discover Goa will be pleased to arrange it at the time of booking, though you are free to make your own arrangements.
All accommodation ratings including any star ratings are the tour operators own. They may differ from the accommodation's official rating. Ratings may also differ from one operator to another, depending upon the individual assessment of the accommodation in question by that operator.
