Terms and Conditions
Please read and understand the following terms and conditions:
The following terms and conditions apply to all Travel organized by HideOut Travel ad Tours, operator and owner of the website with URL: http://www.hideouttravelandtours.com/ (herein after referred to as “HideOut”) For this purpose, the term “Travel” shall include any combination of international or domestic flights from your point of origin to your final destination, and include all hotels, resorts, accommodations, excursions, tours, transfers, rentals, etc., that have been organized on your behalf by HideOut Travel and Tours.
If your booking includes Flights or Accommodations or other service, provided by someone other than us or its appointed agents, whether we has acted as the agent or not, then your contract shall be subject to the conditions set forth in the applicable Philippines Travel and Tour Operator’s policies, or in the case of an Airline, the airline’s applicable booking conditions. These conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
Any arrangements which you make while on your Vacation and which are not made through HideOut are ones for which we have no responsibility or liability.
Making a Booking
When you make a booking with us, you undertake that you have the authority to accept and do accept these booking conditions on behalf of yourself and your party. A contract will exist upon our accepting any monies from you towards the booking or upon the issue of our confirmation, voucher or itinerary, whichever is the earlier. These conditions in conjunction with the information set out in our published information from the entire agreement between yourself and HideOut Travel and Tours. When you make a booking with HideOut Travel and Tours and we accept it, the total cost of the Philippine Travel Package becomes due and payable immediately, unless we have agreed in writing that you may pay an initial deposit. In any event, the full amount of your Philippine Travel Package must be credited to HideOut Travel and Tours a minimum of 10 working days BEFORE your scheduled departure.
Prices are fixed at the time of booking and generally will not be subject to any surcharges, unless otherwise stated. The only exception will be an increase in our costs arising as the result of any government action including but not limited to, new or increased taxes such as VAT. When a surcharge is payable an administration charge of P5.00 per person, together with an amount to cover travel agents commission (if applicable) will be added. If this means that you have to pay more than 20% of the original booking price you will be entitled to a full refund of all monies paid in respect of your booking, except an amendment charge. Should you decide to cancel because of this then you must exercise your right to do so within fourteen (14) working days from the date we advised you of the amount due.
We reserve the right to change our prices at any time before you book including any special rates that we may offer from time to time, which may not be the same as those published on this website.

In some cases, posted rates may expire or become invalid after the booking date and before the actual date of travel. In this case, we will confirm and charge the new rate that will be in effect at the time of travel. (see VALID FROM DATES below room rates, to confirm validity)

Thereafter, except as provided by applicable law, cancellation charges as specified in Condition 7 below, shall apply.

If We Amend your Booking
In the event that changes may become necessary, we reserve the right to make at any time. Most of these changes are minor and we will advise you at the earliest possible date. Flight times and carriers set out in publicity material are subject to change and all details given to you are for guidance only.
Confirmed dates will be as shown on your itinerary and air tickets. Should a material change become necessary, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible. You may decide whether or not to accept the change, however you must accept or reject the proposed change in writing within 48 hours of notification, otherwise we will assume that you have accepted the proposed change.
A material change is one made to your travel arrangements before departure, involving change of departure or arrival airport (other than between airports within the same city airport system) outward or return flights being re-scheduled by more than 12 hours, or by substitution of accommodation originally booked with one of a lower grade. If we alter the airline, aircraft type operating your flight or routing, this is not considered a material change and we will be under no obligation to notify you of such change in advance.
If you do not wish to accept a material change, we will give you a full refund and in addition, whether or not you accept a material change prior to departure, we will also give you compensation for your inconvenience based on the following:
Period before Scheduled Departure Date within which a material change is notified
Compensation payable to you or your travel agent, per person
- 30 days or more | $ 0
- 15 days to 29 days | 10%
- 14 days or less | 20%
As we do not control the day-to-day management of your accommodations, it is possible that we may be advised that the reserved accommodation may not be suitable or available upon your arrival. If this happens, we will aim to provide accommodation of at least the same standard, in the same geographic area. If only accommodation of a lower standard is available, then we will refund the difference of the advertised price between the accommodation booked and that available together with compensation of $10.00 per person for your inconvenience.
Important Notice: We are not responsible for changes which arise as a result of events outside of our control, such as technical or maintenance problems with transportation, changes imposed by re-scheduling or cancellation of flights by an airline, or main charter company, war or threat of war, civil strife, industrial disputes, natural disasters, bad weather or terrorist activity.
If We Cancel your Booking
We reserve the right in any circumstance to cancel your booking. However, in no case will we cancel your booking less than 15 days prior to departure, unless it is for reasons outside of our control or for non-receipt of payment by you. If we do cancel your booking (other than for late or non-payment) we will offer you a full refund of all monies paid in respect of the Travel booking.
Our obligations, and those of our suppliers providing any service or facility involved in any part of your Travel are to take reasonable skill and care to arrange for the provision of such services and facilities and, where we or our supplier is actually providing the service or facility, to provide them with reasonable skill and care. Compliance with any applicable regulatory requirements (such as, for example, those of the Civil Aviation Authority) will be proper performance of our, and our suppliers’, obligations. You must show that reasonable skill and care has not been used, if you wish to make any claim against us.
Where travel and health documents are necessary to comply with the requirements of the Philippines Islands you may wish to visit, then it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to procure them. If failure to obtain any such documents results in fines, surcharges or any other financial penalty being imposed upon us, then you agree to reimburse us accordingly. You must ascertain by consulting your own doctor, if necessary the specific precautions deemed prudent for the country or destination you intend to visit and to ensure that the appropriate medication, inoculations or other precautions are taken.
Conditions of Carriage & Accommodations
We are neither a carrier nor a provider of accommodations. Each journey (whether undertaken or not) that you book by land, sea or air is governed by the conditions of the carrier undertaking to provide that carriage. Some of these conditions limit or exclude liability and are often the subject of international agreements. Copies of the applicable agreements are available for inspection at the offices of the carrier concerned.
It is your responsibility to re-confirm the onward or return sectors of any air journey with the carrier concerned or such carrier’s duly authorized Travel agents and according to such carrier’s regulations. When you book accommodations (whether provided or not) its availability or provision is subject to the ‘house rules’ of the hotel or other accommodation providing or undertaking to provide such accommodations.
We reserve the right in our absolute discretion to terminate your Boracay Travel without notice should your behavior be such that it is likely in our opinion, to cause distress, damage, annoyance or danger to any other person. In such circumstances, no refund or compensation will be due to you.
No refund will be due to you in respect to the non-utilization of any part of the Boracay Travel arrangements made for you, by WOW Philippines Travel Agency.
It is a condition of the agreement between us, that you personally take out adequate travel insurance against cancellation charges, unexpected curtailment of your vacation, medical expenses arising overseas including repatriation, loss or damage to luggage and personal liability claims against you.
Should you fail to secure such Philippines Travel Insurance coverage prior to your Philippines Travel, then you accept full responsibility for yourself and all of the members of your party, and indemnify HideOut Travel and Tours and our overseas Philippines Travel agents and representatives (as applicable) for any and all costs that may arise, which would otherwise have been met, had such Philippines travel insurance been in force.
