No. There is no penalty. We want the customer to enjoy the benefits at his / her will.
We are evaluating a possibility to offer either 15th Month or 18th month as the last date to travel at the committed rates for the selected package.
In this case, it becomes a pure RD product and the bank / RBI rules and regulations will apply and Thomas Cook will have no control over it.
Ideally, not possible, but if the customer is willing to pay the additional charges that might apply due to change of plan, we will consider it on a case to case basis.
Customer gets a welcome kit, which will have the booking form and all the product benefits and the holiday packages that the customer can select.
We will have a constant SMS / Email communication plan which will keep the customer updated on what one stands to get and create excitement about the holiday he / she is looking forward to.
Changing the package / plan might lead to change in the package rates, but if the customer is willing to pay for additional charges, if any, then one can make the changes.
