You are required to provide us with your full name (first, middle and last name), gender and birth date, exactly as they appear on your passport. Failure to provide us with the correct information may result in significant airline penalties and increased fares for which you are responsible. In addition, Asia Transpacific Journeys will administer a $75 per person surcharge for any changes made after airline tickets have been booked.
SINGLE SUPPLEMENT: On all Small Group Trips, a single supplement must be paid under the following conditions:
1. If single accommodations are requested, (once requested, single supplement changes are not allowed without prior approval, or penalties may apply)

Asia Transpacific Journeys does not provide trip cancellation, interruption, air ticket cancellation, lost baggage and supplemental medical insurance. We highly recommend considering these additional coverages. To receive maximum benefits, including a pre-existing condition waiver, your premium must be received by many insurance companies within 15 days from the date of your trip deposit. Upon booking your trip we will send you information on travel insurance.
Additionally, check with your personal health insurance provider to make sure your policy covers you in all countries where you will be traveling
We cannot vary from our stated refund policy regardless of your situation. For this reason, we recommend that you buy travel insurance immediately upon booking your travel arrangements. See Travel Insurance section above for more information.
