Cancellation Refunds
If you have to cancel your trip, please advise us of your cancellation in writing.  Cancellation refunds will be calculated from the date of receipt of your written cancellation.

All payments for travel services not provided to the passenger shall be refunded in accordance with Top China Tour’s cancellation policy as detailed in our Terms and Conditions. In this event, we will refund any payment made to Top China Tour, less any cancellation fee that is applicable, within 14days of receipt of your written cancellation request.

The cancellation fee will be calculated as follows:
More than 30 days before departure: $150 per person

14 to 7 days before departure: 80% of the full payment per person
6 to 0 days before departure: 100% of the full payment per person

Traveler substitutions (name changes) are deemed reservation cancellations and are subject to the above cancellation fees.

After the trip has commenced, we are unable to refund any amount for unused services due to an early departure, late arrival, or missed days on tours.


Itinerary Changes
Before your booking is confirmed we are happy to process itinerary changes free of charge, because providing the best possible tour for you is our ultimate goal.

Changes made after you have received the booking confirmation letter will incur a fee of $25 per request, and changes to the departure date or destination may incur cancellation fees. All changes are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.

Top China Tour reserves the right to modify your itinerary due to airline schedule changes, surface transportation changes, or other events beyond its control. In this event, any of the increase or reduction in tour costs will be calculated and charged/ refunded accordingly. If the change is requested by the passenger, then he/she will be required to pay any additional cost in advance.


Travel Documents
A valid passport and appropriate visa or permit are required for you to travel on our programs. All such documentation is your sole responsibility, though your travel consultant may assist you in applying for the necessary travel documentation if requested to do so. Top China Tour bears no responsibility or liability whatsoever for your failure to obtain appropriate documentation.


Luggage Allowance
According to the regulations of the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China, the free baggage allowance within China is 20kg (44pounds) in economy class, 30kg (66pounds) in business class, and 40kg (88pounds) in first class, plus limited carry-on luggage. Excess baggage charges are your sole responsibility. Regulations within China specify that all suitcases must have a locking device attached. Failure to follow this regulation may result in refusal by airport staff to load suitcases onto the aircraft.


Medical Issues
You must advise us in writing, at or prior to booking, of any physical, emotional or mental condition which may require professional attention during the trip or may require the use of special equipment. If you require a wheelchair, you must provide your own small, collapsible wheelchair. Certain features, and certain trips, are not wheelchair-accessible. We cannot guarantee any wheelchair assistance or accessibility in international destinations. Top China Tour reserves the right to decline any trip participant whose condition, in our opinion, may affect the health, safety or enjoyment of other participants.
