TERMS & CONDITIONS:

Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel will make every effort to honor the price as originally quoted, however, under certain circumstances additional costs by a supplier or government may be imposed due to an increase in the cost for one or more of the travel components.

Flight confirmation is subject to availability and prices are subject to change after the date of deposit, including price increases in the price of a seat, price for baggage, applicable fuel surcharges, or an increase in a government imposed fee or tax.

Passport copies are required to confirm international air reservations.

Once purchased, US air transaction prices will not increase, except for potential charges resulting from government imposed taxes or fees.   I consent to pay for such charges and authorize Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel to charge my credit card for such additional amounts.

Certain suppliers reserve the right to increase prices to cover increased costs, fuel surcharges, tariffs and taxes, and to reflect fluctuations in foreign exchange markets.

I have reviewed and I accept Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel Fee Structure on behalf of myself and anyone in my party.  I acknowledge and accept there are cancellation policies, change fees, and penalties that apply to my travel plans and services, which have been provided to me in writing. I agree to all such cancellation policies, change fees, and penalties, and understand unused portions of travel vouchers are non-refundable.

If for any reason my credit card charges are later declined, reversed, or Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel is unable to receive payment for the travel plans and services, I acknowledge that this is a binding contract between myself and Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel, and Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel shall be entitled to recovery, including reasonable attorneys’ fees in connection with collection.

 

TRAVEL PROTECTION/INSURANCE:
Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel offer many optional products and services to enhance every travel experience.   Options such as travel protection/insurance help protect passengers and their investment, but are NOT automatically included in the cost of an itinerary to protect against third party default or bankruptcy, delay, trip interruption, trip cancellation, emergency medical expenses, emergency medical evacuation/repatriation, baggage loss, baggage delay, travel assistance and more.  To cover many of the issues that might prevent a travel supplier from completely providing their services to you (including the potential of financial default or bankruptcy), Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel  strongly recommend the purchase of travel protection/insurance. While no one travel insurance company can cover all circumstances, Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel does offer its clients access to several reputable travel insurance companies. Please read any travel insurance policies carefully and if you have any questions, please call the travel insurance company for clarification, since they have the final word on what is covered by a claim and what is not.

Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel  have included a travel insurance brochure and application with this notice so you can review their coverage and policies.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: You are advised that you need to take the appropriate protection/insurance within a certain number of days from the deposit being paid in order to avoid waiving coverage for  pre-existing medical conditions. The timeframe is imposed by the travel insurance company and is typically 7 to 21 days from the date of deposit.

Travel Protection/Insurance is offered and strongly recommended for everyone.  If I do not elect to accept travel insurance/trip protection, you will be required to complete a Travel Insurance Declined Agreement. I agree that I am responsible for all charges, regardless of the reason.

 

In this era of economic and political uncertainty, Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel encourages its clients to protect their travel funds by using their credit cards and purchasing travel protection/insurance.

INSECTICIDE NOTICE:

All travelers are referred to always check the list of countries that require airlines to treat the passenger cabin with insecticides prior to the flight or while on the aircraft on the DOT’s website, as this list is updated from time to time: https://www.transportation.gov/airconsumer/spray

TSA GOVERNMENT ISSUED ID CARD AND REAL ID: 

I acknowledge that beginning October 1, 2021, every air traveler 18 years of age and older must present a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States https://www.tsa.gov/real-id .   Review the full list of acceptable documentation here: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification .    If you are not sure if your ID complies with REAL ID, check with your state department of motor vehicles.

 

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS NOTICE:

Travel documents, including passports, visas, and health/vaccination certificates required are your responsibility – Valid Passports are absolutely required for all international destinations and the expiration date should be at least 6 months following the return date of your trip.  Some countries require that your passport have 4 to 6 blank visa/stamp pages. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met. (For more information see Frequently Asked Questions). When travelling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires that everyone carry acceptable identification in order to board a flight.  Information can be found here: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. Examples: DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, USA Passport, a foreign government passport. The name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records.  I acknowledge that my failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing me to miss my flight.

Additionally, a visa and vaccinations may be required. Please note that even when a visa is issued, a traveler may be denied entry since each country’s local immigration officials make the final entry decision. Several factors including a past criminal record may contribute to the decision of the local immigration official(s). Should a visa not be issued, Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. 

If traveling to or through Canada, travelers with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or other conviction record should always check whether current rules that exclude admission, and potential waivers. Trav-ellen' Inc. and Largay Travel feel it is an invasion of privacy to make such an inquiry. The final decision of entry rests with the immigration or border services officer.

I understand non-U.S. passport holders must contact the embassies of their destination and transit countries to obtain entrance requirements. Required or advised inoculations I decide to obtain upon the advice of my personal physician, may need to be administered in a series of doses months ahead of my planned departure, and such time element should be taken into account by me, when making deposits and/or nonrefundable final payments.
