Shoddy

published

Booked and paid for Vietnam and Cambodia tour, cancelled due to Covid 19, requested refunds and was initially refused, rang again, no response so an email giving them 3 days to respond. Request for refund declined again as they were waiting for monies from their suppliers. Contacted them again and was escalated to management level and was offered a partial refund and the insult of having $350 per person cancellation fees ( equates to $700). The partial refund was not given and a time period of 3-6mth. Have now escalated to Slater and Gordon. ACCC states very clearly ALL monies to be refunded if cancellation due to Covid 19.
Very eager to take your monies but reluctant to give it back.

As many others, booked with LE who then passed the tour to SNA. We were offered dates for 2021 but now find out SNA in Liquidation! No communication from LE except a generic email. The 2021 trip is still listed on my Escapes! Where is all this money??? I paid LE - they need to take responsibility.

Japan Tour cancellation

published

My experience as previous reviews: Booked and paid to Luxury escapes for travel on 21 April to Japan, contacted a week before by an email for cancellation of the tour and offered their sympathy ...no offer was made for postponing or refund as Travel Asia ( which I don’t know whom they are) been liquidated. To my knowledge the tour was operated by SNA and they still in operation.. total confusion and where is the duty of care by Luxury Escapes

TOTALLY PEEVED OFF

published

Well there you go China starts the Covid-19 and now we all lose our money we have paid to travel to China through SNA tours. We had opted to take a refund less the cancellation fee well prior to them going into liquidation but it appears now that we like many others will be getting bugger all. We both are at retiring age and can ill afford to lose money like this - totally disgusted with the hole process. Why does my friend appear to have more money against her name than mine when we booked the same trips.

Loss of Money

published

We have been advised the same although 2 others travelling with us have yet to be advised. We too were advised of postponing until next April which we took. Travel Insurance appears to not cover liquidation either so we have all lost money now. What options do we have with Luxury Escapes for some responsibility?

Tour cancellation

published

Our experience is exactly the same as Avril Summers. Our tour to Japan, offered through Luxury Escapes, but managed by SNA tours was first postponed till next year and now cancelled due to SNA Tours going into Liquidation. We feel extremely disappointed as at our age 75+ it is a loss of a significant amount of money and timing. Luxury Escapes is ATOL protected in the UK and Europe which insures that the purchaser can get a full refund if the tour company goes bust. Does this assurance not exist in Australia? We chose to book through Luxury Escapes as it is a reputable company, but it is very disappointing that in this case we have not been offered an alternative or refund.

TERRBLE COMPANY

published

I bought a tour for china, we had to cancel it because of the corona virus. Many firms are returning all the money, but the sna tour said that it could only return half, and when the news about the virus was new, it made me decide quickly, otherwise I would do nothing. I still haven't received a refund. They told me to wait 3 weeks, it was 6 weeks, still I couldn't get my money.

SNA Tour has postponed my Japan Tour until next year.

Hello Everyone,
I have just received confirmation that SNA has agreed to postponed my Japan tour to next year. They are very supportive of the current situation.
For that I shall always be loyal to them for future tours.
And wonderful people working there.

Coronavirus

We too were booked to go in April to China and have been advised we can still go but when we get back we will go into quarantine for two weeks. They have absolutely no idea what they are talking about!!! Please explain what the $350 covers as everything would have been canceled as soon as Australia stopped people going!!! I am going to bombard them with emails until I get a full refund.

TERRIBLE

published

Booked a trip for 4 people to China and was never updated on progress on flight or travel details. Attempted to confirm a travel date to arrange time off work and no one was able to confirm. When trying to cancel due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak, they advised it was $350 per person (total package cost $999) although the fine print and terms and conditions provided when booking only stated $150 per person, Staff have been rude, do not listen and talk over you. Have booked the trip through TVSN where both SNA tours and TVSN have continuously palmed my requests off to each other rather then any of the companies taking accountability or helping.

My name is Anton Grabovic and my booking reference number is 00062063 .
We were booked for a 11 day Inspiring China on the 20.03.2020 this was cancelled and postpone to the 20th June 2020 and then again postponed to the 11 of September 2020.
According to the government’s department this date will not be available for travel. My wife and I are pensions and financially we can afford to keep changing dates.
Can you please let us know what our options are?
We have been trying to get in touch with you for weeks.
Waiting to hear from you

Hi Anton, have you tried sending them an email to this email address :- reservations@snatours.com
Did you get an automated reply saying their offices are closed until 31st May,2020? Also you could try sending them a message on their Facebook page, you may get a reply, here is the link :- https://www.facebook.com/snaasiagroup, where it says "send message" click on it and then type your message. Did you deal with SNA Tours directly? I purchased an offer through Luxury Escapes so had to deal with them separately. Just try these two actions and see if you receive a reply. All the best.

Also depending on any response you receive, write another review on this site and also write a review on Trust Pilot and on SNA's facebook page, that often gets a response.
There is a petition that I have signed :- https://www.change.org/p/luxury-escapes-tell-luxury-escapes-to-offer-refunds-amidst-covid-19-pandemic
It has gained a lot of response from various people with complaints etc. See what you think.

To michael griffin and tony of sydney

How do you know your new bookings for 2021 are secure with sna tours? I was contacted by sna tours too with new dates in 2021 but now their affiliate company travel Asia has gone into liquidation so I wouldn’t hold my breath with your new dates!

To Diana S and Gra of Sydney : Please consider signing the petition that many disgruntled Luxury Escapes customers have signed, it is all about trying to get refunds for various travel/accommodation etc. Alson consider the Slater & Gordon class action expression of interest to hold the travel agencies accountable. Here is the link if you are interested :
