CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS You have the right at any time to cancel the booking but if you do so you must make the cancellation in writing. You’ll receive a full refund on cancellations 45 days or more before departure date (120 days or more for cruise tours; 60 days for international tours), less any out-of-pocket costs. For cancellations received fewer than 45 days before departure date (or fewer than 120 days for cruise tours; 60 days for international tours), the deposit amount is charged regardless of the reason for cancellation plus any nonrefundable expenses incurred for hotels, carriers or ground contractors, cruise companies or other out-of-pocket expenses. No refunds are possible for unused portions of a tour unless arrangements are made before departure. If you must return home, refunds will be whatever net funds Travel Ways recovers from contractors. If any tour must be withdrawn, Travel Ways’ liability is limited to refund of monies received. Cruise ship, airline and other transportation penalties are subject to the rules of carriers. To protect against cancellation charges, Travel Insurance (cancellation, health, luggage) is strongly recommended (see below). TRAVEL INSURANCE (optional) Trip Cancellation coverage begins when you submit your insurance application and insurance premium directly to the Insurance Company. Most Insurance Companies require that you pay the premium within two weeks of your deposit to be covered for any pre-existing illnesses. Other coverage begin at the point and time of tour departure. Coverage continues for the duration of your tour or as specified with your particular plan. Details of benefits and exceptions/limitations of coverage are specified in the Travel Insurance brochure which will be mailed to after you register for the tour. These facts about the plan should be read carefully. Premiums are based on the amount of coverage you want and your age. You should call us before you submit your insurance application to verify the amount of coverage that you need. Normally, you do not need to take coverage for the full amount of the tour cost and only for the amount of non-refundable expenses. If Trip Cancellation Insurance has been declined, the cancellation of a tour is subject to the cancellation fees outlined above under Cancellation/Refunds. AIR TRANSPORTATION Air transportation via services of any scheduled carrier. Certain travel restrictions apply depending on the type of fare used. Stopovers are allowed on most tours at an additional cost as charged by the carrier. Airfares are based on tariffs in effect March 1, 2015 and are subject to change by the airlines. In the event of change in tariffs, the new rates will apply and must be paid accordingly. If passenger desires to be protected from any increases in airfares, the air ticket must be purchased according to the fare in effect. MILEAGE PROGRAMS — Mileage program Travel Awards (e.g. free or upgrade certificates) may be used but your credit amount will be the group net fare. You will be responsible to book your own
flights with the airlines. Also, if the group flights or dates are changed or if the tour is cancelled, Travel Ways will not be responsible for any fees for changes or re-credit of your award ticket.
