Please read our Terms and Conditions and travel information carefully as these are the terms of the contract between you and TourHero Pte. Ltd., hereinafter referred to as “TourHero”.
1 These terms
1.1 TourHero is a platform that connects travelers and Travel Specialists who offer Tour Customization Services and Tour Packages by Tour Suppliers (“Products”). These terms and conditions govern your use of our website (our “Platform”). Tour Specialists and Tour Suppliers, hereinafter referred to as “sellers” are independent contractors and not agents or employees of TourHero.
TourHero is a website service that connects travelers to Travel Specialists and Travel Suppliers based on the traveler’s destination and needs. TourHero does not provide, own, or control any of the Products, such as flights, accommodations, rental cars, packages, or travel insurance (the “Products”). The Products are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Travel Suppliers”). The Travel Suppliers are responsible for the Products. The Travel Supplier’s terms and privacy policies apply to your booking so you must agree to and understand those terms. Furthermore, the terms of the actual Travel Supplier (airline, hotel, insurance, etc.) apply to your travel, so you must also agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Travel Supplier accessed through the Website is at your own risk; TourHero does not bear any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking or during your travel unless it solely was responsible for the event.
You acknowledge that some Travel Suppliers offering certain services and/or activities may require you to sign their liability waiver prior to participating in the service and/or activity they offer. You understand that any violation of any such Travel Supplier’s rules and restrictions may result in cancellation of your reservation(s), in your being denied access to the applicable Travel Product or services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation. TourHero is not liable for any costs incurred due to hotel relocation.
By offering reservations for travel in particular international destinations, TourHero does not represent or warrant that travel to such areas is advisable or without risk. It is your responsibility as a traveler that you read and adhere to published information and government reports about your destination. TourHero will not be liable for damages, losses, personal injuries or death that result from travel to such destinations.
You and any travel companion including but not limited to children traveling with you must be in possession of a machine-readable passport valid for 6 months after the trip return date along with all applicable visas. It is your sole responsibility to secure and/or pay for any and all visas, reciprocity fees, affidavits, vaccinations, etc. that are required to be permitted entry into each destination, including stopovers. In some countries you may be subject to entry (reciprocity) fees and/or departure taxes/exit fees which will be collected at the airports upon entry/departure by local government authorities. Please note that entry to any country may be refused even if the required information and travel documents are complete.
For up-to-date detailed information on travel documents and visas, entry/exit taxes and further information on entry and exit requirements please check with your local consular services. Obtaining and carrying these documents is your sole responsibility. TourHero bears no responsibility for such information and will not be responsible for advising and/or obtaining required travel documentation for you, or for any delays, damages, and/or losses including missed portions of your vacation/holiday related to improper documentation or government decisions about entry.
Vaccinations for travel. TourHero is not a medical advisor or medical expert, and cannot determine your health or fitness for travel. Before departure, you should consult your doctor so they can consider your medical history and expected destinations in order to provide you current recommendations. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip.
The carriers, hotels, and other Travel Suppliers providing travel or other services on this Website are independent contractors and not agents or employees of TourHero. TourHero is not liable for the acts, errors, omissions, representations, warranties, breaches or negligence of any such suppliers or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting therefrom. TourHero has no liability and will make no refund in the event of any delay, cancellation, overbooking, strike, force majeure or other causes beyond TourHero’s direct control, and TourHero has no responsibility for any additional expenses, omissions, delays, re-routing or acts of any government or authority.

Buyer's rights to make changes
If a buyer wishes to make a change to the Product buyer has ordered, please contact the seller. The seller has full discretion whether or not to accept the changes. The seller will let the buyer know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of the requested change and ask the buyer to confirm whether he wishes to go ahead with the change. If the seller cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to the buyer, the buyer may request to end the contract (see Clause 9 - A buyer's rights to end the contract).
A seller's rights to make changes
Sellers may make minor changes to their Products from time to time in order to:
reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes will not affect a buyer's use of the Product.
If a seller makes significant changes to their Products or the Seller's Terms for the Products, the seller will notify the buyer prior to the changes take effect. If the buyer does not accept the changes, the buyer may contact the seller to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Products paid for but not received.
A buyer's rights to end the contract
If a buyer becomes aware of any defect in all or part of the Products performed:
the buyer must give notice in writing to the seller;
where the Products reported are found to be defective the seller will, at its option, re-perform the services or refund the price of such defective Products in full.
If a buyer is ending a contract for a reason set out below the contract will end immediately, the seller will refund the buyer in full for any Products which has not been provided and the buyer may also be entitled to compensation:
the seller has told the buyer about an upcoming change to the Product or the Seller's Terms for the Product, which the buyer does not agree to (see Clause 8.2);
the seller has told the buyer about an error in the price or description of the Product ordered and the buyer does not wish to proceed;
there is a risk that supply of the Products may be significantly delayed because of events outside the seller's control; or
the seller has suspended supply of the Products for technical reasons, or notifies the buyer that the seller is going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than three (3) months.
On our Platform, each buyer is offered a goodwill guarantee under which a buyer may change his mind within one (1) day and receive a refund.
A buyer has one (1) day to change his mind after the day the seller emails him to confirm his order. However, once the seller has completed the services, the buyer cannot change his mind even if the period is still running. If the buyer changes his mind during the period that the seller is providing the services, the buyer must pay the seller for the services provided up until the time the buyer informs the seller that he has changed his mind.
A buyer does not have a right to change his mind once services have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
Even if a seller is not at fault and a buyer does not have a right to change his mind under Clause 9.3, a buyer can still end the contract before it is completed (i.e. when the seller has finished providing the services and the buyer has paid for them) by giving notice in writing to the seller. In such cases, the contract will end one (1) calendar month after the day on which the buyer contacts the seller. The seller will refund any advance payment the buyer has made for Products which will not be provided to the buyer.
To end the contract with a seller, select the relevant option in your account, or email our customer services at email@example.com.
If a buyer ends the contract with a seller, the seller will refund the buyer the price the buyer paid for the Products, but the seller may deduct from the refund the price for the part of services already provided (up to the time the buyer informs the seller that the buyer is ending the contract with the seller) in proportion to the full price of the services.
If a refund is due, a seller must make the refund to the buyer as soon as possible.
A seller's rights to end the contract
A seller may end the contract for a Product at any time by writing to a buyer if:
the buyer does not make any payment to the seller when it is due and still does not make payment within three (3) days of the seller reminding the buyer that payment is due.
If the seller ends the contract in the situations set out in Clause 10.1 the seller will refund any money the buyer has paid in advance for Products that have not been provided, but the seller may deduct or charge reasonable compensation for the net costs the seller will incur as a result of the buyer breaking the contract.
Price and payment
The price of the Product will be the price indicated on the order pages when a buyer places his order. Each seller must take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advice is correct.
It is always possible that, despite best efforts by the seller, some Products may be incorrectly priced on the Platform. If the correct price for the Product at a buyer's order date is less than the price stated to the buyer, the seller will charge the lower amount; but if it’s higher than the price stated to the buyer, the seller will contact the buyer for instructions before accepting the buyer's order.
A buyer must pay for the Products by such time and in such manner as specified in the Seller's Terms.
If a buyer thinks an invoice is wrong please contact the seller promptly to let them know.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
Subject to Clause 12.2:
all warranties, conditions, or terms relating to fitness for purpose, quality, or condition of the Products, whether express or implied by statute or common law or otherwise, are expressly excluded;
we shall not be liable to you (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) for any loss of profit or any indirect or consequential loss arising from or in connection with the provision of the Products; and
our total liability to you for all losses arising from or in connection with the use of the Platform shall be limited to the price of the relevant Products sold to you on our Platform.
Nothing in these terms will limit or exclude our liability for:
death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors (where applicable);
fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
any matter in respect of which it would be unlawful for us to exclude or restrict liability.
Use of your personal information
In the event you process personal data relating to a buyer or a seller for the purpose of effecting a transaction or otherwise using the Platform, you confirm and undertake that you will only process such personal data for the sole purpose of participating in the marketplace on the Platform and (where applicable) to supply the Products to buyers and you will apply all adequate technical and organisational measures to keep such personal data secure.
These terms constitute the entire agreement between any user and us in relation to the use of the Platform. These terms supersede and extinguish all other agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between any user and us, whether written or oral, in relation to the use of the Platform.
You acknowledge that you will have no remedies in respect of any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in these terms.
Other important terms
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you do not wish to continue the contract with the transferee, you may contact us to end the contract within one (1) calendar month of us informing you of the proposed transfer and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Products not provided.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Subject to these Terms, you will defend, indemnify and hold TourHero and each of our officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against any claim, cause of action, liability, expense, loss or demand, including—without limitation—reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of, or in any way connected with your breach of these Terms or the agreements made part of these Terms by reference, your breach of any applicable law, and your use of or access to the Website, or Intellectual Property.
Governing law and dispute resolution
These terms are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Singapore.
Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to the Small Claims Tribunal via their website at https://www.statecourts.gov.sg/cws/SmallClaims/Pages/GeneralInformation.aspx. Small Claims Tribunal will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings.
