We use your data to enable you to travel and have the best experience possible. To communicate effectively we will request your telephone and email contact details. We will contact you by the email address provided. We will update you on relevant offers, respond to your enquiries, and communicate throughout the arrangements of a booking. We may include your email address in our marketing emails which you may unsubscribe at any time you wish. If you open one of these marketing emails, we use software to record details of your email address and the pages that you have looked at. This allows us to record your interest to help us to offer an improved service and to send further offers on the same theme. Our contact data is never shared with any third parties for marketing purposes.

Tour Makers or Keralavoyages does not accept payment by Credit/Debit card at present– so no card data is stored.

With permission comments may be shared with third parties if there is need for service improvements to be made. Images will be retained for marketing purposes. If these images are personal or relate to a group in any way, permission will be requested prior to any use. Permission will be requested and given by email and retained.
