If documents are issued and we can accept the change there will be an additional reissue fee minimum of $350 per person plus any fees assessed by air/land supplier/s.

AIR TRANSPORTATION

Price is based on scheduled transportation in economy class and nonrefundable airfare on one of our preferred airline partners (if requesting a specific carrier, an additional charge may apply) from the city specified in the itinerary. The tour package price reflects airfare currently in effect & is subject to change until ticketed. Inquire about airfare options from your home city. Passengers coming from different cities booked or deposited at different times, may be booked on alternate routings/different flights. Passengers are responsible for charges due to delays on domestic flights (purchased as separate tickets) in connection with an international flight. If using frequent flyer miles, participants must book directly with the carrier.

Purchase of domestic ticket to connect with International Flight:
It is recommended that you do not purchase airline tickets until the land portion of your tour is guaranteed to operate.

If booking a domestic flight to connect with the trans-Atlantic flight, an overnight (at least for eastbound travel) or an early flight (with at least one backup flight available) is recommended.

Also note: carriers will not necessarily allow passengers to check bags through to the final destination with multiple tickets. Thus passengers will only be able to check the bag to the destination on the first ticket(s). The passenger must collect the baggage at baggage claim for their first ticketed destination, and then re-check their baggage with the down-line carrier for the next flight. Various baggage restrictions may also apply subject to carrier guidelines.

any costs/fees relating to airline delays, rescheduling or cancellation. If you miss your departure flight it is your responsibility to work with the airline on which you are ticketed to reach your destination.
