When you make a booking, you and all guests traveling with you are agreeing to the entirety of the terms below.  Should you or any of your guests disagree with any of the terms, you should notify us immediately. When you make any booking with us you are representing that you have legal authority for all those for whom the booking is made.

We will work with you to plan each detail of your trip.  Once a booking is made, you will receive confirmation. Please check this confirmation for accuracy and notify us as soon as possible if there are any discrepancies.

Price and Payment

We will work with you to plan a personalized itinerary that meets your travel needs. After any adjustments to your travel plans, you will receive an itinerary which will contain the price quote. Please note that prior to payment, availability and prices may change.  This can occur due to fuel surcharges, changes in the exchange rate, supplier increases, or other market conditions.  We will notify you of any such changes.

Legal names as used in your passports must match exactly to avoid possible issues while traveling.

Changes to Your Trip

If you wish to amend your booking after receiving the final invoice, you must contact us.  We will work with suppliers to make changes; however, changes are subject to the Supplier’s terms and you will be responsible for any change fees that may apply.  In some cases, airlines and hotels may deem changes a cancellation for which cancellation fees may apply.  Any changes to a booking that involve the addition of sequential nights to a stay will be considered an amendment to the original booking, regardless of whether the extra nights are booked by the person who made the original booking, or by another guest with whom they are staying.

Cancellation of Your Trip

Planning custom travel takes extensive time and research. All Suppliers have their own cancellation policies, which apply to your booking. Should you need to cancel please send your cancellation request to us in writing.  Upon, receipt of your cancellation request, Journeys 360 Travel will follow industry procedures for any applicable refunds as outlined in the Suppliers’ terms and subject to their review. Flight tickets, hotel reservations and other items provided for the travel cannot be refunded if they are partially used.  The money will be refunded to the original payor and form of payment.

Please note, that certain Supplier’s terms contain a 100% cancellation penalty after booking, in such case, there will be no refund for that portion of the travel.

In the unfortunate event a participant must cancel travel, notice must be made to Journeys 360 Travel during standard business hours or via email, which must include writing stating clearly and correctly each guest’s name, ship name, start and end date of the cruise and a brief statement of the reason for cancellation. Other forms of notice are not sufficient. Cancellations received within 24 hours of vacation start date will be deemed as trip interruption, cannot be cancelled and are 100% non-refundable. The effective date of the cancellation is the date Journeys 360 Travel receives cancellation notice. A change in sailing date, name changes, the substitution of a participant or a reduction in the number of guests in a stateroom are treated as a cancellation in that all applicable cancellation charges apply. A reduction in occupancy is subject to a single supplement charge. Cancellation charges for bookings within charter and part-charter agreements are as per the charter contract. All other cancellation charges are per-person, based on the cancellation date, as seen in the chart below.

You acknowledge that your cancellation will cause us and the Carrier difficulty in selling a replacement cruise or cruise & land reservation and thus the cancellation fees described below apply regardless of whether your cruise or cruise & land reservation is resold. You agree that any losses sustained by us and/or the Carrier in the event of cancellation would be very difficult or impossible to quantify, and the cancellation fees are fair and reasonable as liquidated damages.

Cancellation by a Supplier

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if a Supplier needs to make a significant change to your confirmed booking or to cancel. We will also liaise between you and the Supplier in relation to any alternative arrangements offered by the Supplier, but we will have no further liability to you. If the Supplier is unable to offer agreeable alternative services, we will work to obtain and secure an alternate supplier for your travel. We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for supplier bankruptcy or insolvency or inability to perform.

Cancellation due to Force Majeure

We cannot accept liability, provide any refund, or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected, or you otherwise suffer any loss, injury, death, inconvenience, or damage as a result of circumstances amounting to “force majeure”. “Force majeure” means any event or circumstances which we or the supplier of the services in question could not foresee or avoid. Such events and circumstances may include, acts of God, actual or threatened, war, insurrection, riots, strikes, civil action, decisions by governments or governing authority, technical or maintenance problems with transport, changes of schedules or operational decisions of air carriers, terrorist activity or the threat thereof, industrial action, natural or nuclear activity, epidemic, pandemic, illness, physical injury, quarantine, medical or customs or immigration regulation, delay, or cancellation, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control. Furthermore, there will be no refunds due to fear of travel from actual or threatened terrorist, health, political, pandemic, or other similar events.

Travel Protection

Unfortunately, even the best-laid plans can fail.  While we strive for excellence in our service, factors do happen that are beyond the control of anyone.  Sudden illness either before or during travel can lead to the cancellation or amendment of plans; unplanned events may make travel impossible; or you may simply decide that you do not want to travel.  For this reason, we strongly recommend that you purchase a travel protection plan, including cancel for any reason coverage as and when offered.  You should discuss your coverage needs with a qualified insurance broker. Should you choose not to purchase appropriate Travel Protection, Journeys 360 Travel will not be liable for any losses you suffer which travel protection would have covered.

Destinations and Documentation

Travel to many parts of the world may involve the risk of a variety of hazards to health and/or safety, including but not limited to disease, crime, terrorism, and warfare. Because each guest’s risk tolerance is different, Journeys 360 Travel is not in a position to advise or recommend whether to travel to any particular place at any particular time should take place. It is recommended that you refer to objective third-party sources of travel information, such as that maintained by the U.S. Department of State (travel.state.gov), Center for Disease Control (cdc.gov), or any other applicable governmental authority in your respective jurisdiction. In addition, you should consult with government websites to ensure that you are in compliance with all requirements for admittance into that country as well as understanding local laws that govern travel within a country, such as tracking. Should you choose to travel to a country that has been issued a travel warning or advisory, Journeys 360 Travel will not be liable for damages or losses that result from travel to such destinations.

Your passport must be valid for 6 months after your return to the U.S. It is your responsibility to obtain any required visas. We are not responsible for delayed processing of visas and passports by Consular offices and normal cancellation charges will apply.

For up to date visa requirements US citizens should visit www.travel.state.gov. It is your sole responsibility to secure and/or pay for any and all visas, reciprocity fees, affidavits, immunizations, etc. that are required to be permitted entry into each destination. In some countries, you may be subject to entry (reciprocity) fees and/or departure taxes/ exit fees which will be collected at the airports upon entry/departure by local government authorities.  Please note that entry to any country may be refused even if the required information and travel documents are complete. Journeys 360 Travel bears no responsibility for advising and/or obtaining required travel documentation for you, or for any delays, damages, and/or losses including missed portions of your vacation related to improper documentation or government decisions about the entry.

Health: Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your practitioner for current recommendations before you depart.

Inoculation requirements can be found on the Center for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/.

Flights

Occasionally airlines change flight schedules and may even cancel flights entirely. These changes are beyond Journeys 360 Travel’s control. In the event that such a situation occurs, Journeys 360 Travel will do its very best to assist you with finding the best possible alternate option(s). If the flight time change is minor (2 hours or less) the airline will automatically make the change (airline policies/rules entitle them to legally do so). Journeys 360 Travel will notify you of major changes. Please Note: there may be additional costs to re-book a new flight should the airline cancel or make a major change to your original flight itinerary. Journeys 360 Travel is not responsible for any additional costs or fees imposed by the airlines. Journeys 360 Travel advises you personally to re-confirm your flight schedule within 24 hours prior to departure directly with the airline in case of any last-minute changes or delays.

Accuracy and Accommodations

We endeavor to ensure that all the information and prices both on our website and in our communications are accurate; however occasionally changes and errors occur, and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to the arrangements that you wish to book before your booking is confirmed.

Guests should be aware that hotel room sizes, standards, and facilities can vary regionally and are often different from standards in the United States. Additionally, hotels and other accommodations may amend their offerings from time to time without notification. This can include differences in bed sizes and room sizes, bathroom amenities, amenities such as air-conditioning, facility availability, and compliance with other standards such as ADA and wheelchair accessibility.  One of the joys of international travel is experiencing different cultures and different ways of life so we hope that you will accept these differences with grace and a sense of adventure.

Additionally, guests should be aware that star ratings or similar systems are based on country classifications and therefore can differ.  While Journeys 360 Travel does its best to maintain current and accurate information regarding these Suppliers, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in Supplier descriptions, amenities, or images.

Complaints

Should you have any complaints about an aspect of your trip arrangements when traveling, you must inform Journeys 360 Travel and any appropriate Supplier immediately. Most problems can easily be dealt with at that time. Please note if you do not report a problem or complaint which, if it had been reported at the time it occurred could have been resolved there, and then, we cannot accept any liability in respect of that problem or complaint. In the unlikely event that an acceptable solution cannot be found, you should then write to us within 30 days of your return with full details of your complaint.  All complaints must be in writing and received by either email or USPS.  Our client service team will work with you towards resolution but may request additional information from you, so please make sure that you save any pertinent documents or photographic evidence.  Resolution may take 60 days or longer.  Complaints regarding accommodations, ground, tour, or airfare must be addressed directly with the supplier.  Nothing in this paragraph should be construed as a promise by Journeys 360 Travel to settle or refund any money to you.

Non-Disparagement

Client shall not, at any time, make statements or representations, or otherwise communicate, directly or indirectly, in writing, orally, or otherwise, or take any action which may, directly or indirectly, disparage Journeys 360 Travel or its respective officers, directors, employees, advisors, businesses or reputations.
