Other important information

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on the history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction where they are guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves it at the end of the tour; they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides at each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village and offer information on the place visited on the bus. However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Vietnam
Vietnam's climate can be divided into a tropical and temperate zone.
It is characterised by strong monsoon influences, has a considerable amount of sun, a high rate of rainfall, and high humidity.
July is the hottest month in Hanoi with an average temperature of 29°C and the coldest is January at 17°C with the most daily sunshine hours at 8 in July.
 
Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand has three main seasons - Summer (March - June); Monsoon (July to October) and Winter (November - February), with winter being the most pleasant time to visit Bangkok, offering cooler and less humid days to explore.
Being a tropical country, the weather is hot all year with minimum temperatures dropping to a low of 23°C in winter and an average high of 35°C in summer.
 
Cambodia
Cambodia sits in the middle of the tropics, meaning it is hot and humid all year round with the only difference being the amount of rain that falls.
Siem Reap is at its driest and coldest during November to March.
Rains commence in April or May and become heaviest during the months of August - October.
Temperatures typically range between 21°C to 36°C throughout the year, rarely going above or below.
Please note: For more detailed information check a website such as AccuWeather or WeatherAtlas.
 
FLIGHTS
Seat Selection & Frequent Flyer Points
At TripADeal, we do not arrange seat selection. It is essential to highlight that some airlines do not allow pre-selected seats. We strongly suggest you contact the airline directly with seating allocation requirements and/or arrive at the airport earlier to arrange your seating. While we do not add frequent flyer member details to bookings, you can do this directly with the airline once you have your flight information.
 
Passport Validity
Customers must provide valid passport details either at the time of purchase or no later than 45 days before the departure date. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of the booking. Customers will be responsible for any costs and fees incurred in this instance.

Please note: Tipping for services provided is always a matter of personal discretion; however, please be aware that many locals consider tipping part of their normal remuneration, and they may approach you for payment; there's no need to be intimidated by the request.

Shopping
Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved. If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all your receipts. 
Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.

Visas

Vietnam
Australian passport holders are eligible to apply online for a single entry electronic visa (e-visa), valid for up to a maximum of 30 days.
Lodge your application online (for a non-refundable fee) with the Vietnamese National Web Portal of Immigration (https://www.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/)
You will be given a unique code to track your visa application status. Once your visa is granted, you must print it out and present it at check in. Keep this e-visa print out with you at all times during your travel in Vietnam.
 
Some private online visa services and travel agents have scammed travellers or been involved in the public disclosure of the personal information of applicants for visas and 'visa issued on arrival' approval letters. To avoid such scams, only use official Government of Vietnam services to arrange your visa.
 
Visa and other entry and exit conditions (such as currency, customs and quarantine regulations) change regularly. Contact the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Vietnam for up-to-date information.
 
Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.
 
Cambodia
For Australian and New Zealand passport holders to enter Cambodia you'll need a visa. You can apply for an e-visa online through the Cambodian Government's official portal www.evisa.gov.kh (processing time is 3 - 5 days) or through an embassy or consulate of Cambodia. Alternatively you can get a tourist visa on arrival.

Effective July 1, 2024, the paper arrival/departure card, health document, and customs form will be replaced by the electronic E-arrival card. All travellers are required to submit the Cambodia e-Arrival Card within 7 days before their arrival. See https://www.arrival.gov.kh/ for more information
 
Thailand
Australian passport holders are not required to obtain a visa when entering Thailand for tourism purposes and will be permitted to stay in Thailand for a period not exceeding 30 days on each visit.
Important: 
• Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.
• Visa rules may have changed since Covid-19. 
 
Some countries and airlines may require you to obtain an additional visa before arrival. Please check with the nearest embassy, consulate or immigration department of the destination you're entering.
Please note: 
• Passengers who are not Australian citizens must also check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required.
• It is also important to note that some areas of employment, such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations, may have additional restrictions in applying for visas. This may, in turn, affect the type of application required.

Supplier Fees
In the event the Travel Offer you have purchased is unable to proceed, and/or a travel Supplier is unable to fulfil the Travel Offer due to external circumstances (Limitation of Liability e.g. a Force Majeure event), there may be a fee or amount of money that is withheld by our Suppliers and is unrecoverable. This may be due to non-refundable airline tickets, cancellation penalties with cruise cabins or unrecoverable payments with our land/accommodation partners. TripADeal has committed to these costs as your Agent and will endeavour to recover all funds committed and/or paid for your Travel Offer, but this may not be possible in all circumstances.
