Ok to Board status requirement

Citizens of India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka would need an OK to Board status on their PNR and booking to visit any GCC

countries. This is applicable for all paper visas and not for the ones stamped on your passport.

 

Hajj/Umrah bookings

Travel on Hajj or Umrah flights (or 4-digit flights) to and from Jeddah and Medina is permitted only for GCC nationals (excluding Saudi nationals) or for passengers holding a valid UMRAH or HAJJ visa. These flights are designated for Hajj and Umrah pilgrims flying into Saudi, therefore passengers without a Hajj or Umrah visa will not be permitted to board these flights (including Saudi nationals who will have other domestic flight options instead). It is the passenger’s responsibility to travel with all required documents.

Please note that in case boarding is denied by the airline, Smart Trip Maker will not be able to process any refunds.

Travelling on a hajj visa

In order to receive a Hajj visa, you need a valid return ticket. Pilgrims can enter Saudi Arabia from Jeddah or Medina airports only. You can exit Saudi Arabia from Jeddah or Medina airports only.

 

Travelling on a business or visit visa during hajj

Muslims who are not on a pilgrim Hajj or Umrah visa cannot enter Jeddah or Medina during the Hajj period but can enter Riyadh or Dammam. Nonā€Muslims cannot enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during the 9-10-day Hajj period.

 

Connection or layover time

For passengers that book a series of one-way tickets (e.g. separate ticketing), passengers need to check if the Minimum Connection Time (MCT) is enough between flights. Smart Trip Maker might provide different airlines as a cost-effective option but Smart Trip Maker would not be responsible if any one of the airlines rescheduled the itinerary that would result in a shorter connection time, thereby risking a missed flight. To avoid any issues be sure to either book a return flight (and the airline will manage the MCT for you) or that you have adequate time during your connection or layover to catch your next flight.

 

Hotel booking policy

Booking conditions

By making a reservation on our website, you accept and agree to the relevant accommodation booking conditions, including cancellation and no-show policies applicable to that booking, and to any additional (delivery) terms and conditions of the accommodation that may apply to your reservation or during your stay, including for services rendered and/or products offered by the accommodation (the delivery terms and conditions of an accommodation can be obtained with the relevant accommodation).

 

Late arrival and failure to check-in (no-show)

While you should contact Smart Trip Maker if you wish to cancel a cancellable reservation in advance of your stay, if you are going to be delayed on your date of check-in or find that you cannot check-in to your hotel on the date you requested, you should contact the accommodation directly to let them know. If you fail to check-in to your accommodation on the day of your reservation and do not alert them, the remaining portion of your reservation may be cancelled, and you may not be entitled to a refund, depending on the terms and conditions of the applicable accommodation.

 

Cancellations and amendments

Accommodation cancellation policies vary: Certain reservations cannot be cancelled and are non-changeable; others require you to pay a penalty if you cancel; and still others are fully refundable. Please note that certain rates or special offers are not eligible for cancellation or change. Some accommodations will charge extra for early or late check out.

The general cancellation and amendment policy of the accommodation is made available on the website at the accommodation information pages or under “booking conditions”, “cancellation policies” or the like, and in the confirmation email and voucher. We recommend that you read the cancellation and no-show policy of the accommodation carefully prior to making your reservation.

Regardless of the accommodations’ cancellation and amendment policy, Smart Trip Maker reserves the right to charge a cancellation or amendment fee, and this will be indicated on the website. Please carefully check the accommodation details for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
If you wish to review, adjust, or cancel your reservation, please revert to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein, or contact our customer support team.

 

Special requests

Many accommodations have specific policies around children, accompanying travelers and/or accompanying pets. As indicated above, you are strongly advised to check with customer service or the accommodation itself to verify the accommodation policies.

 

Special Needs

If you have special needs (e.g. wheelchair-bound, hearing or visually impaired), then you can check under “hotel facilities” if the accommodation can facilitate your needs. We highly recommend that you contact our customer service team or the accommodation directly and verify if they can make arrangements for you. Please note that all special requests are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed by Smart Trip Maker. Depending on the policy of the applicable accommodation, your reservation will be refunded, cancelled or modified if special needs cannot be met. If available, your request will be confirmed upon arrival.

 

Late arrivals

All accommodations have specific check-in and checkout timings, and in some cases the accommodation might not have a 24-hour reception or check-in desk. In such cases we advise that you contact the accommodation and inform them of your estimated time of arrival to avoid any disappointment.

 

Group bookings

On our website you can book up to 8 rooms for one accommodation for the same arrival date. If we determine that you have booked reservations for more than 8 rooms in total in separate reservations, we may cancel your reservations and charge you a cancellation fee (if applicable). If you paid a non-refundable deposit, your deposit will be forfeited.

 

At the accommodation

Once you have arrived at your booked accommodation, but certain promised facilities were not available to you, then we advise you to lodge your grievance with the accommodation management. Smart Trip Maker does not promise or guarantee any availability of the stated above.
