Making any payments (cash, credit card, or otherwise) towards any tour constitutes your unconditional acceptance of all the terms and conditions stated in this tour brochure. Trinity World Tours shall be referred to as TWT within this document.

 

DOCUMENTS:
US citizens require a valid passport. Other nationalities please inquire with the appropriate embassies.

TRAVEL WARNING:
This is to inform you that there is a Travel Warning issued by the Department of State for travel to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. This warning might still be in effect on the day of your travel and your cancellation for this reason does not constitute grounds for refund of the cancellation fees listed below.

REGISTRATION AND DEPOSITS:
Deposit of $300 per person is required upon registration along with a signed copy of the registration form. No registrations can be taken by telephone or fax. Registrations are processed in the order received by TWT. Balance of payment is due 75 days prior to departure. Late payment is subject to $50 penalty. Late registration (fewer than 75 days) must be accompanied by full payment by cashiers check only (including the optional passenger travel protection program payment, if applicable), is subject to availability and subject to a $50 late fee. TWT reserves the right to cancel reservations that are not paid in full 60 days prior to departure and to apply the applicable cancellation fees/penalties indicated below. A $25 fee will be charged on all checks returned by our bank.

INDIVIDUAL CANCELLATION FEES & REFUNDS:
Upon cancellation of participation in the tour by you, the registrant, for any reason, and only after TWT receives your signed cancellation in writing sent via certified mail or fax, TWT will then refund your payment for services not received by you, minus applicable cancellation fees per person, according to the following schedule:
1) Minimum cancellation fee is $100 from time of registration up to 120 days prior to the tour’s departure day;
2) From 119 to 60 days prior to departure day, the cancellation fee is $200;
3) From 59 days to 8 days prior to departure day, the cancellation fee is $300 plus any non-refundable amounts paid to and/or penalties assessed by airlines, hotels, or other suppliers of travel services (up to the total cost of the tour);
4) From 7 days prior to departure day and onward, no refund is possible.

The above cancellation fees and/or penalties will also apply if you register for an optional extension or airline routing, and you decide to cancel or change any of these. We highly recommend the Passenger Travel Protection Program (see ‘PASSENGER TRAVEL PROTECTION PROGRAM’ below.)

TOUR OPERATION & CANCELLATION:
While no changes are anticipated, TWT expressly reserves the right to withdraw any part of the tour, or to make such alterations in the itinerary as it deems necessary or desirable. TWT reserves the right to cancel this tour due to any circumstances, and refund all payments in full without any penalty. This will constitute, in full, TWT’s obligation to tour registrants and TWT bears no further responsibility beyond the full refund. TWT expressly disclaims any liability for any loss, expense, damage or inconvenience caused as a result of any tour cancellations or changes made to any of its tours.

TWT likewise expressly disclaims any responsibility for refunds of any payments for losses or expenses incurred due to cancellation or alteration of the tour when such action is beyond TWT’s control. In this instance, TWT will assist you in requesting refunds for all services prepaid but not rendered, minus a non-refundable $200 per person administration fee. TWT is not responsible for any non-recoverable amounts disbursed to the carrier or other provider of services on your behalf.

PASSENGER TRAVEL PROTECTION PROGRAM:
Passenger Travel Protection Program is administered by Berkely Care, Ltd. This program is available through TWT and is strongly recommended. A Protection Plan brochure will be sent with your invoice. The Plan excludes coverage for pre-existing conditions and war or any act of war, whether declared or not. Please read the Protection Plan brochure for a full description of coverage provided. Applicable Plan fee is based on the cash discount price and taxes (as well as single room supplement and airline add-ons, if applicable) and will appear as an optional item on your invoice. Travel Protection Plan cannot be purchased after you have made your final payment for the tour. All Protection Plan fees are non-refundable.

HEALTH:
The registrant takes full responsibility for being fully able to participate in the daily activities of the group as described in the itinerary, noting that many facilities overseas are not wheelchair accessible. While TWT cannot accept responsibility for providing access to such facilities, TWT will attempt to assist in providing mobility aids to the extent feasible and with applicable costs. TWT assumes no responsibility for the registrant’s ability to fully participate in the tour, nor can we provide any refund for non-participation in any part of the tour.

AIR TRANSPORTATION:
Round-trip Economy Class. All airfare tickets, unless specifically stated otherwise, are non-refundable. Any cancellation, itinerary changes, or failure to use confirmed space would be subject to penalties and/or fees levied by the airline at the time of ticketing. Airfare, airline carrier, and airline schedules are subject to change without notice. Passengers arranging their own airline transportation are responsible for meeting the group at the first hotel of the group’s itinerary. TWT is not responsible for itinerary changes necessitated by changes in the airline’s schedule. Airline fuel surcharges and security fee surcharges (if any) that occur after the date of printing of the brochure are the responsibility of the passenger.

DEVIATIONS:
Deviations from the tour’s group flight itinerary are not possible. If you wish to make your own airline arrangements and purchase the ‘land only’ version of tour package, please contact your group coordinator for the ‘land only’ pricing.

AIRLINE SEATING, FREQUENT FLYER & MEAL REQUESTS:
Seating is group seating and therefore TWT cannot accommodate any individual seating requests. TWT kindly directs you to the airlines for all frequent flyer inquiries. Special meal requests should be made directly with the airline by the tour registrant, usually two weeks prior to departure.

BAGGAGE:
Baggage is at risk at all times. We strongly suggest that you bring only one piece of checked luggage and one carry-on. Porterage is included at hotels only for one piece of checked luggage; the passenger is responsible at all times for carrying carry-on luggage. No porterage included at airports.

ACCOMMODATIONS AND MEALS:
Based on double/twin accommodations with private bathroom facilities (limited number of single rooms available and subject to availability). No reduction for triple rooms. Triple room consists of twin/double room plus a rollaway bed, and confirmation is based on availability. If no roommate is available for you or your roommate cancels prior to departure, you agree to pay the single room supplement. Meals are menu of the day as shown in the itinerary (B=Breakfast, L=Lunch, D-Dinner).

SIGHTSEEING:
By private motor coach with English-speaking guide/escort. All entrance fees per itinerary included.

PRICES:
All prices are based on exchange rates and fares applicable at the time of quotation and based on minimum number of paying passengers stated in the brochure, and are therefore subject to change if fares change, if group does not reach minimum or if exchange rates fluctuate.

NOT INCLUDED:
Passports and visas, meals not mentioned, beverages with meals, extras beyond standard menu, excess baggage, telephone calls, fuel surcharges, laundry or any other items not explicitly stated as included.

LIABILITY DISCLAIMER:
TWT hereby expressly disclaims any liability for any personal injury, property damage, loss of baggage, accident, delay or irregularity, any claim for special or consequential damages or any other loss which may be occasioned by the acts and/or omissions, whether negligent, intentional, wrongful or otherwise, of any air carrier, hotel/motel or other lodging operator, railroad operator, bus operator, public transportation, sea carrier, local sightseeing company, tour operator, tour leader or spiritual director, any employees thereof, or any other entity or individual not under the direct supervision and control of TWT when engaged in conveying the passenger or in carrying out the arrangements of the tour, or otherwise in connection therewith. TWT likewise expressly disclaims any responsibility for losses or expenses incurred, or inconvenience caused, due to delay or changes in schedules, defaults, over booking of hotels or airlines, sickness, weather, strikes, quarantines, acts of terrorism, constructions, war, force majeure or other such events which are beyond TWT’s control. TWT likewise hereby expressly disclaims any liability for statements, actions or inactions of any intermediary agents such as group administrators, spiritual directors or tour leaders, travel agents or any other intermediary involved with the selling, promotion or operation of its tours. Group administrators, spiritual leaders and tour leaders likewise hereby expressly disclaim any liability for the acts and/or omissions of any of the above entities and/or individuals not directly under their supervision or control. Please be advised that the liability of carriers as well as providers of hotel and lodging accommodations is limited by law and you may thus wish to consider purchasing additional passenger travel protection program to protect yourself against any losses or injuries suffered as a result of their acts and/or omissions. In all instances, TWT’s liability shall be limited to the amounts paid by you for participation in the tour, and subject to the provisions and cancellation fees as set forth in these ‘Brochure Terms and Conditions.’ In the event that the tour leader and/or spiritual director named in a brochure or itinerary does not travel with the group, and a substitute is not named to replace such person(s), then TWT reserves the right to make substitutions of its choosing for such person(s) in the operation of the tour.

POLICY:
TWT does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age, sexual orientation or status as a Vietnam veteran in the provision of its tour and pilgrimage services.
