If your pickup location is outside the complimentary mini-van route of Kata, Karon and Patong, Kamala, Surin, Bangtao we need to hire a private car to make the return transfer. Please check this link to view a map of the free transfer zone.
The cost for car is 500 THB baht each way (per car – not per person) and we will organise this for you. For locations outside of Phuket higher charges apply and we will advise you soon after receiving your booking.
This can be paid on the day of your trip when you pay the balance of the tour costs.
We will advise an exact pick-up time the day before the tour.
By advancing your deposit to Simba Sea trips, you therefore agree to be bound by the below terms and conditions.
Cancellations within 24 hours of the trip, or a no show (inc missed departure when using own transport) will result in 100% of the total cost being charged. This means you would not only lose the deposit you would be required to pay the balance stated on the confirmation email. Note – if Simba is able to re-book your seats to other customers you will be provided a full refund ASAP.
In the case of sickness we will make every effort to move you to an alternative date however the cancellation policy still stands. As we limit the number of guests on each trip, we do get fully booked and a reschedule may not be possible. A refund will be applicable should we be able to re-book your seats to other customers.
If Simba cancel a trip and can not reschedule during your time in Phuket we will refund 100% of all deposits immediately. Minimum passenger numbers apply on certain tours and Simba reserves the right to cancel the tour and provide a full refund or change dates, or tour type at the customer’s discretion.
