7. How do I book an activity?
First, visit the page of the activity you would like to book. Select the date you wish to go on the activity by clicking the calendar icon under the "Availability" heading on this page. Dates in green are still available while dates in red are no longer available; click on the date you wish to book.
Second, click the green "Book now" button. Please note that some tours have multiple options - for example, an excursion that can be taken either as a public group or as a private tour at different prices - so you may see more than one “Book now” button. Be sure to click the booking button for the option you wish to reserve. You will then be prompted to select your desired starting time (if applicable) and the number of participants in your group. Then click "Add to cart."
On the following page, review your selected booking information, and click the green "Proceed to checkout" button to enter your payment details (if applicable).
If the supplier offers hotel pick-ups, please add your hotel name and address to the field for “Address of your hotel or accommodation.”
If you are booking a transfer, please enter your flight details and times in the field “Remarks for the local operator.”
Once you submit your booking, the local supplier of the tour will confirm your reservation within 48 hours, and you will receive a ticket voucher via email. Please print your voucher and bring it, along with a valid photo ID for the traveler named on the ticket, to the meeting point stipulated on your voucher when you attend. Please be aware that some activities will also require a valid ID for each participant, but this will be stated on the ticket.
8. What forms of payment do you accept?
When you make a booking, you can pay with a VISA or MasterCard credit card, or with PayPal.
Keep in mind that TripXOXO is located in India, and some banks and credit cards may charge a transaction fee for international payments. Please contact your card provider directly for further information about transaction fees.
9. Is my payment secure?
Yes. By using our secure online payment system, your payment information is encrypted, you are secured against fraud, and you can make date changes or early cancellations at no cost (please see our cancellation policy here): http://www.TripXOXO.in/terms_of_business.php#supplier_11.
Please note that your credit card/PayPal account will be charged upon booking. If the local tour operator does not accept your booking, the charged amount will be credited back to the account from which the charge was drawn.
10. After I make a booking, how long will I wait to receive my voucher?
This depends on your booking. Some activities are automatically confirmed as soon as you submit your booking. Most activities on TripXOXO require manual confirmation from the supplier. These activities will be confirmed within 48 hours. Please be aware that some suppliers do not have office hours on the weekend, so weekend bookings may take a little longer to receive a confirmation.
What do I get after I book?
After booking you'll receive two emails from us. Here's what to expect:
1) Receipt: Right after you book, we'll email you a receipt to confirm your booking submission and payment. Keep in mind that the receipt is not the same as the confirmation you get in step two.
2) Confirmation + Voucher: As soon as your booking is confirmed, you’ll receive another email with a link to your voucher. If your activity has instant booking, you will get your confirmation and voucher quite quickly. If your activity is on-demand, there will be a short wait time for the supplier to confirm your booking.
It’s a good idea to keep these emails for your records. Your voucher is especially important because it contains the details of the activity departure location and contact information for the local supplier in case of an emergency.
If you need to find your voucher again, it’s easy: just log in to your Customer Profile on TripXOXO.in and navigate to "Bookings." There, you'll see all of your past and upcoming bookings and vouchers.
11. Where do I find my booking reference number?
If you need to contact us about your booking, you’ll need to provide us with your reference number so that we can find your booking details. Your reference number can be found in both the email receipt you receive after submitting a booking, and in the confirmation email you receive once your tour has been confirmed. Your reference number always begins with the letters “TPXO.”
12. How do I change information about my reservation after I make a booking?
If you need to make any changes to your booking - such as removing a participant, changing the tour date or time, or editing your contact information, please contact TripXOXO via phone, Live Chat, or email. You can find more information about contacting us here: http://www.TripXOXO.in/contact.php
If you are removing participants, or changing the date or time of your tour, we will need to contact the local supplier to confirm that they can accommodate the change. If you simply need to change your contact information, we’ll be able to take care of that for you ourselves right away!
Please note that some venues/local suppliers cannot accept cancellations or date/time changes for a booking that has already been confirmed. Any non-standard refund or cancellation policies from the tour operator are stated on the tour page.
13. What do I need to bring with me to my activity?
You will need to bring a copy of your ticket voucher (all local suppliers accept printed copies; some accept a display of your voucher on your mobile device) and a valid photo ID for the traveler named on the ticket (some activities will also require a valid ID for each participant but this will be stated on the ticket).
Some activities require or recommend additional items to bring with you: for example, driving excursions generally require a valid driver’s license, while outdoor or sporting activities may require or recommend specific gear to ensure your comfort and safety (rain gear, water bottles, swimsuits, etc). Please check both your voucher and the activity details page where you booked for more information from the supplier about what’s required or recommended for your activity.
14. I lost the email with my voucher. How do I reprint it?
If you no longer have the email with your voucher, don’t worry! Simply contact us via email, phone, or Live Chat and we will email you a link to your voucher. You can find more information about contacting us here: http://www.TripXOXO.in/contact.php
15. Can I purchase an activity for someone else?
Of course! If you are purchasing an activity for someone else, you can enter that person’s information on the checkout page when you enter your reservation details.
On the checkout page, first please enter your own information in the billing details form. Then, in the “Traveller (Details on the ticket)” form, un-click the checkbox next to “Same as billing details.” This will open a new form where you can enter the name, email, and phone number of the lead traveller who will actually be going on the activity.
