Best Price Guarantee

Our prices are so competitive that All 4 Diving Liveaboards pledges to make sure that guests pay the lowest price possible for the liveaboard cruise holiday.

Our online booking system enables you to make a booking directly with the service provider and charges a fee accordingly to the service provider. All 4 Diving Liveaboards Ltd is not a party in this agreement.

Failure to comply with the requirements may result in your inability to use the Services, and late cancellation fee may apply.

b) The service provider is responsible for your transport from pier/harbour/beach to the vessel in the case of a liveaboard. In many instances service providers will provide transport, either paid or on a fee basis, from the airport, point of arrival. In any instance where the service provider does not provide this service, then it is the guest(s) responsibility to arrange their own transport to/from the vessel transfer point. For other transport, All 4 Diving Liveaboards may offer some suggestion for airlines, hotels and transfer options, but holds no affiliation with these third party suppliers and therefore cannot be held accountable for their services.

The guest(s) acknowledge that if the rules of the boat are broken, the service provider (or captain) can deny entry on board, deny diving activities or any of the services offered by the service provider.

In addition, many countries also require each guest has a few spare/valid pages in their passport.

f) The guest(s) will be responsible for all costs involved in reaching the vessel if you are delayed or fail to reach the vessel by the scheduled time of departure. Alternative arrangement to reach the vessel may be possible to arrange locally. All costs such as staying at onshore accommodations, alternative diving arrangements etc. are the responsibility of the guest(s). We advise the guest(s) to travel at least a day prior to their boarding date and to consider to have an extra day on land before the day of the return flight.

g) The guest(s) is solely responsible for following safe diving practices and the recommendations of their training institution on ‘no-fly’ timing after diving.

d) We reserve the right to amend bookings if necessary. All 4 Diving Liveaboards can amend the itinerary, the vessel and the cabin allocation.

e) If All 4 Diving Liveaboards is found responsible for mistakes on the booking, then the amount charged to the service provider for the service provided (i.e. the commission amount) is the maximum liability.

7. Complaints and disputes

If you breach this agreement and file a chargeback, upon resolution in our favour, you agree to recompense us for all costs incurred in dealing with the chargeback. These costs will include our actual costs paid to the card processor or our banks, other third parties, and the reasonable value of the time of our employees spent on the matter.
