Failure to provide correct name as printed in the passport or any Government authorized travel document can result in the loss of booked space or denied boarding. Any penalties associated with incorrect names are not the responsibility of TE or the carrier.
Participation: All Clients should consult their physician regarding their fitness for travel especially adventure travel.
TE encourages all Clients to seek their physicians’ advice regarding necessary or advisable vaccinations. It is the Client’s responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each travel itinerary. TE is not responsible for any missed activities due to a traveler’s inability to participate with the group.
Passport/Visa/Health: Clients are responsible for obtaining a valid passport, any necessary visa and health documentation as required by the country/countries they wish to enter or transfer through. It is the clients’ responsibility to make sure that their passports are up-to-date for travel to their destination and in presentable condition. Most countries now require that passports are valid for more than 6 months from the date of travel with at least two pages for visa stamping. Multiple-entry visa is required for some vacations. Certain countries require inoculations and mandatory vaccination certificates. Please note that requirements often vary for citizens of different countries. TE accepts no responsibility for cancellation due to lack of proper travel documents or immunizations.
Tour Prices and Alterations: Prices mentioned in our tours or packages are based on tariffs, exchange rates and air fares in effect when the tours were published and promoted. TE reserves the right to alter prices quoted should inflation, cost of fuel, labor or material, air fares or foreign exchange rates change. There may be circumstances which require TE and its associates/suppliers of travel services to reserve the right to make changes in the itinerary and substitute components of any tour, due to security matters or events beyond their control make such alternations necessary.
Cancellation and Penalties: Cancellation penalties imposed on TE by its suppliers are stringent for land arrangements. Airline tickets also have separate penalties. TE will advise its clients of the penalties at the time of cancellation. If the client cancels while the tour is in progress, there will not be any refund for the unused portion of the tour or tickets.
Airfares: Full payments are required for all air reservations as dictated by the airlines. An itinerary will be sent so that all the information can be checked before payments are made and tickets issued. Prior to payment, airlines may impose, with or without notification, fuel surcharges or tax increases. Payment of these increases is the responsibility of the passenger. Once the tickets are issued, any fees associated to changes or cancellation is the responsibility of the client or travel agent.
Schedule changes: It is the client’s responsibility to contact the airlines or TE, 72 hours prior departure and on the day of departure to reconfirm their flights. Any client that misses their flight due to a schedule change will not be reimbursed by TE for expenses resulting from a missed flight.
Baggage: Most domestic (USA) airlines permit passengers to carry 1 or 2 suitcases with specific measurements and weight as mentioned in their tariffs. Different international carriers’ baggage allowances are different depending upon the class of services and fare paid. On an international trip the passengers may have different baggage allowances with the airlines they are flying. Some tours involving light aircraft on safari or other outdoor adventures will have a different baggage and weight allowance. There may be fees associated with check-in baggage.
Travel Insurance: TE strongly advises clients to purchase trip cancellation insurance, which TE will make available to the client. The intent is to protect the client from financial loss in most of the circumstances. Information for Travel Insurance will be sent to the client at the time of booking. Travel Insurance protection benefits include Cancel for Any Reason Waiver, Trip Interruption, Medical Expenses, Evacuation, Baggage Loss, Delay and other benefits. Travel always involves risks, and while insurance can help mitigate many of the expenses incurred if things go wrong, it won’t eliminate all risk, and likely won’t entirely reimburse every expense. It is important to know what the Travel Insurance coverage, limitations and exclusions are, please check with us.
