PRICE QUOTES AND PRICE MATCHING
Price quotes for travel are not guaranteed until reservations are confirmed with full passenger names and deposit payment. All prices are subject to change without notice and are subject to availability. Unless otherwise noted, price quotes typically do not include baggage fees, gratuities, meals, telephone calls, resort fees, incidental items, souvenirs, airport transfers or travel insurance - unless otherwise stated.
We work with many travel operators who will match prices. However, each component must be the exactly the same in the quote. It’s better to communicate with us about your research efforts from the beginning so we’re able to assist you in making an informed decision. Working with a travel agent is more beneficial than not working with one for various reasons. Please be advised not all less expensive quotes are good investments.

SERVICE FEE (TRIP PLANNING FEE)
Effective September 1, 2018 – In order to perform the professional services required to plan and arrange your travel, a PLANNING FEE will be required. This deposit is due along with the signed planning service agreement. The Service Fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. If, your reservation is booked within 3 days of the quote, the fee will apply to your booking.
With each Planning Fee, the client will receive a combination of three (3) proposals (i.e., three destinations and no revisions, one destination and two revisions, two destinations and a revision of one, etc.). Additional quote revisions & requests for a different destination is subject to an additional Planning Fee of $25. The additional planning fee is also non-refundable and non-transferable.
PAYMENT DEADLINES & IMPORTANT DATES
Unless otherwise defined during the reservation process, final payment is due prior to departure or consumption in accordance with each supplier’s (airline, hotel, cruise line, transfer company, sightseeing operators, and other travel service vendors) terms and conditions involved in your travel booking. With advanced planning (6 months or more), a flexible monthly payment plan is available for ALL vacation packages. An automatic monthly payment feature is also available for your convenience at no additional cost. There is a minimum monthly payment of $100, unless otherwise noted in the quote or executed payment arrangement.
Reservations paid after the final payment due date will be charged a late payment fee of $50.00 per person.

Payments that are 10 days past the due date & trips with no payments 45 days from the initial deposit will be cancelled automatically with NO REFUNDS and deposits shall be forfeited. NO EXCEPTIONS!
All late payment requests must be approved by management before the final payment deadline on your account.

If final and full payment is not received by the applicable due date(s), reservations are subject to cancellation and deposits shall be forfeited. In most cases, there is NO REFUND* after the final payment.
*Airfare is non-refundable after 48-hour booking window.

If your reservation is cancelled and you have purchased insurance, you are entitled to a refund minus the cost of insurance. If your flight is non-refundable, the flight portion may be subject to full cancellation or a trip credit. If the hotel is in cancellation penalty, you may be charged for the hotel stay. This depends on how many days your trip is cancelled prior to departure. Cancellations must be done at least 8 days prior to departure to avoid additional fees.
Once airfare is purchased, airline tickets are issued and are always subject to 100% penalty.
Refunds: If you purchased Travel Insurance through us, refunds will be processed to the credit card(s) originally used for payment, up to the total amount paid minus the cost of travel insurance and any applicable supplier fees.

Reinstatements cannot be processed on bookings that have been cancelled for 5 days or more.
Changes: Changes to an existing reservation, whatever the cause, will incur a $50 per person change plus any additional supplier fees. This includes name changes* and removal of any services such as optional tours and transfers. *Please note that name changes to airline reservations are subject to full cancellation and rebooking. Replacing a traveling passenger with another traveling passenger constitutes a cancellation, subject to cancellation penalties, and is not covered by any insurance policy. This cancellation may result in the loss of the deposit.
Changes or additions after departure are subject to local rates at the time of amendment and must be paid directly by the passenger to the service provider. There are no refunds for unused services.
*Due to Vendor(s) policy(ies) or time restraint(s), certain bookings may not be changed. Administrative charges of $50 per change/per person are advised at time of booking, provided to you upon confirmation, and dependent upon circumstances of the request. All desired changes must be sent via email to email@example.com Changes will not be processed until the $50 administrative charge have been paid. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Travel Documents/Itineraries: Provided full payment is received no later than your Final Payment Due date, documents will be sent approximately 2-3 weeks days prior to the departure date. This includes flight times and confirmations. As flights are subject to change at any time, I will only provide flight information 2-3 weeks prior to departure when final documents are available.
Airline Confirmation , Check-in, Seat Assessment, Missed Flights
It is important that you confirm your flights with the airline prior to departure: 24 hours in advance for domestic flights, and 72 hours in advance for international flights. Failure to confirm international flights or failure to use any portion of an airline reservation may result in automatic cancellation by the airline for all continuing and return flights. You will receive check-in information 24 hours prior to flight departure.
Familiarize yourself with your airline’s policies and requirements before booking. Unless stated otherwise by the airlines, it is important to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure for domestic flights and 3 hours prior to departure for international flights. Late arrival at the airport can result in loss of assigned seats or denial of boarding. Denial of boarding is not eligible for refund or travel insurance reimbursement. Airfare rebooking is subject to airline penalties, rebooking fees, plus any cost difference of the new flight. Seat assignments are subject to change by the airline without notice.
