Due to the financial sanctions against Iran, Rashin Travel is unable to accept credit card payments. Instead, Rashin Travel offers alternative payment methods to collect service fees. Payments can be made via money transfer to personal or business bank accounts in a third-party country. Please note that these accounts may not necessarily belong to Rashin Travel.
Rashin Travel retains the right to modify program itineraries, which may include, but are not limited to, arranged sightseeing, accommodations, and transportation, including flights, trains, buses, and ferries, at any time due to unforeseen circumstances or circumstances beyond Rashin Travel’s control.
Reasonable efforts will be made to operate itineraries as planned, but alterations may occur after the final itinerary has been issued.
Given the nature of private tours, itineraries serve as a general guide and are subject to adjustments due to unforeseen circumstances, including but not limited to weather conditions, road conditions, professional considerations, medical emergencies, legal obligations, and other circumstances beyond the control of Rashin Travel.
International airfare (to the Journey starting point and from the ending point) is not included in program pricing. Rashin Travel maintains special agreements with various air carriers and can provide quotations from multiple departure gateways. Some journeys require internal flights as specified in the itinerary. This airfare is typically included unless it’s mentioned as excluded. In the instance where charter flights are used and seating is limited, Rashin Travel reserves the right to substitute and confirm air reservations on an available alternative scheduled air flight. All internal air travel is based on economy class seating and is 100% non-refundable at time of final payment, with exceptions in rare cases. All international and internal air quotes are subject to change until final payment has been received by Rashin Travel. Flight confirmation is based on availability. Air reservations cannot be confirmed until a passport copy is received by Rashin Travel.
All air carriers are independent contractors and are not owned, managed, controlled or operated by Rashin Travel. Your airline ticket constitutes a contract between yourself and the airlines (and not Rashin Travel), even if purchased through Rashin Travel. Rashin Travel shall not be liable and does not assume responsibility for, or accept claims with regard to, seat assignments, name changes, schedule changes, insufficient travel documentation, flight changes and/or cancellations. Should you change or cancel your air transportation arrangements before or after your travel begins, all airline change and cancellation fees will apply.
Rashin Travel provides porterage of up to two (2) pieces of baggage per person. Please note: Should your journey include internal/domestic or charter flights, your luggage allowance may be less than two (2) pieces of baggage and weight/size restrictions and additional costs may apply.
Details will be provided in your Pre-Travel Documentation. Baggage and personal effects are at the owner’s risk throughout the travel program, and Rashin Travel assumes no liability for lost, stolen or damaged baggage. Please check with your international carrier for other baggage restrictions and fees applicable to your international flights.
Quoted Journey prices are per person, double occupancy except where indicated. Although not expected, published prices may be modified due to unexpected significant external factors not forecasted at the time of publishing. Rashin Travel is under no obligation to give a breakdown in costs of any Journey. Any modifications to a Tailor Made itinerary, including dates or number of people traveling, will require a revised proposal.
All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The parent or guardian traveling alone with a child is recommended to carry documentation that proves their relationship to the child (e.g., birth certificate) and evidence that they have permission to travel with the child (e.g., consent letter). Guests traveling with children who are not related are recommended to carry documentation which provides evidence they have permission to travel with the child. Guests are advised to check with the appropriate government authority to determine the necessary documents required for travel with children. Rashin Travel cannot be held responsible should the guest, child or any member of the traveling party be denied entry to a country due to noncompliance with a country’s requirements.
The suppliers of some activities on Journeys may require a minimum age or minimum/maximum height or weight to participate. Some active elements have been incorporated into select itineraries. To enjoy the Journeys as intended, a minimum level of fitness is required.
By booking a Journey, Guest represents that Guest and Guest’s traveling party are physically and emotionally fit to travel and further warrants that such Guests have no medical or emotional condition that would endanger any Guest or result in a deviation of the Journey. Any Guest with special medical, physical, or other needs requiring medical attention or special accommodation during the Journey is requested to notify Rashin Travel in writing at the time of the booking of such special needs. Upon booking the Journey, Guests who have special needs are requested to contact Rashin Travel at 911 921 1611 to discuss details of their special needs. Rashin Travel recommends that any Guest who is not self-sufficient should travel with a companion who shall take responsibility for any personal assistance needed during the Journey.
A valid passport with a minimum validity of six (6) months from the date of return is a requirement for all guests traveling to Iran. The issuance of an Iran visa is solely determined by the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Rashin Travel assumes no responsibility for any visa rejections. In the event of visa rejection, the guest will be liable for any costs incurred.
It is the Guest’s sole responsibility to obtain and carry the appropriate valid travel documents as and when required. Rashin Travel strongly advises all guests to consult the relevant government authority to ascertain the necessary documents required for their travel.
Any failure to possess proper documentation may result in being denied boarding or being disembarked from an aircraft, train, or bus. Rashin Travel shall bear no liability for refunds, reimbursements, compensations, or credits of any kind in such cases. Moreover, any fines or additional costs incurred by Rashin Travel due to improper documentation or noncompliance with applicable regulations will be borne by the guest. Rashin Travel is not accountable if any guest is denied entry to a country as a consequence of noncompliance with these requirements.
Rashin Travel procures transportation, hotel accommodations, lodging services, restaurants, ground handling, and other facilities from various independent suppliers. As a result, cancellation fees are determined by the charges imposed by each contractor or third-party entity. The specific cancellation fees will be communicated within 48 hours after Rashin Travel receives the cancellation request from the guest.
All cancellations must be submitted in writing and must be made by the individual who initially completed the booking form. Guests must send the cancellation request via email to the dedicated travel consultant at Rashin Travel, including a copy to [email protected]. The cancellation request must be sent from the initial email address that was used to submit and confirm the booking request.
Once the tour has commenced, no refunds will be provided for any unused portions or components of the tour or services to be rendered.
Force majeure means unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond Rashin Travel’’s control or the control of our suppliers, the consequence of which neither Rashin Travel, nor its suppliers, could avoid even with all due care, including, but not limited to, war or threat of war; riot; civil strife; terrorist activity (actual or threatened); industrial dispute; technical problems with transport, machinery or equipment; outages or power failures; natural or nuclear disaster; fire, flood, drought or adverse weather conditions; pandemics and epidemics or outbreaks of illness. In the event of a cancellation or material alteration to the Journey as a result of the circumstances as described in this clause, Rashin Travel shall have no liability whatsoever for any travel related costs incurred by Guest, including but not limited to air, insurance, visas and other travel arrangements of any kind.
Rashin Travel reserves the right to take photographs and video of Guests during the operation of any Journey or part thereof and to use, re-use, publish, and republish their image, identity likeness, voice, interview, statements, video clips and sound recordings, and/or photographic portraits or pictures in which Guest(s) may be included (an “Image”), for promotional purposes during the program and thereafter. By booking a Journey with Rashin Travel, Guests acknowledge that Rashin Travel is the owner of the photographs and video and agree to allow their Image to be used in such photographs and videos, which may thereafter be used by Rashin Travel. Guests who prefer that their images not be used must (1) identify themselves to their Resident Tour Director at the beginning of their Journey; and (2) notify their Rashin Travel Travel Consultant by email, not later than thirty (30) days following the end of the Guest’s Journey. In the event the Guest fails to comply with both obligations, the Guest shall not be exempt from this section. If such written notice is not timely provided, the Guests, individually and on behalf of any Minor traveling with them, have granted unrestricted rights and permission for Rashin Travel to use the Images.
