Of course! Keeping the government guidelines intact, we need this for sure.

Duh, yes! Atmanirbhar Indians do it all. Hence, it is necessary.

We suggest you to be safe at this time and use your own vehicle to reach the destination. If necessary, we can also arrange for a fully sanitised taxi from the pickup point to the property and back.

Umm, unfortunately no! This is only for yours and traveller’s safety. Get back to us when things are normal.

Not a lot but, hard copies of ICMR approved COVID RT-PCR negative test report, the E-permit pass for the state you’re travelling to, original address proof and govt. issued ID proof are the only ones.

In that case, these are the two choices you have for yourself.
  • You can simply cancel the bookings for staying in the property and get back to your home. We would give full refund in this case.
  • You can undergo the quarantine period as said by the local authorities and resume the stay at the property. You would be charged only for the amount you are going to stay there.

Things are really uncertain at this point of time and it will not be a surprise if this happens. So, we will refund your entire amount and you will have to go back to your home.

To be extremely safe for yourself and others, we would advise you to undergo the Cover test by your family doctor in your town. But, we are also there to help you in case you need our assistance. We can help you to get the RT-PCR COVID test from an ICMR approved laboratory at a service fees of Rs. 300.

In this case, we would suggest you to get checked at the nearest COVID centre labs around you. If you are found positive, you’ll have to undergo institutional quarantine and have to follow all the government regulations and guidelines. If you are found negative, you can resume staying in the booked property.

Our recommendation would be more than 7 nights. This is to minimise the overall influx of people entering and exiting state borders in short intervals.

Just draft an email and send it to your stay coordinator. You can write in the mail the later dates for which you want to book your stay and your stays will be postponed.

  • To begin with, we are checking all the mandatory health reports and making a file of it
  • We are checking the travel history of the travellers
  • We are not taking anyone who shows even the slightest possibility of cough, cold, or any other symptom
  • The properties are well sanitised
  • We are involving minimal human interaction
  • We are taking extra care of sanitisation

It might happen in this uncertain time so you can transfer that voucher to your family members or friends to not let them get wasted.

Don’t get in TOUCH with anyone, just drop us a mail. Cool!

Nothing much, basically what you have been doing all these while.
  • Social distancing
  • Not touching anyone
  • Wearing masks
  • Washing hands and face frequently
  • Using gloves
  • Using hand sanitiser
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Avoid coming in contact with someone who shows even the slightest signs of cough, cold, or fever.

Of course, but not all the time. Not when you are safe in the sanitised area. Not when you are alone. Not when you are with your closed ones who you know are safe.

Just practise social distancing, use sanitiser on hands, wear a mask, wear gloves, do not come in contact with anyone closely, take bath with soap as you end your journey, drink warm water, and wash your hands with soap.
