Additional Terms & Conditions for Groups

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING PRICE CHANGES:

Your deposit holds the group space in accordance with the itinerary and payment schedule below. Final prices are subject to increase until every group member has paid in full for the complete package. Because of these potential increases, which are fully outside of the control of Gate 1, we urge you to advise your group participants and to accelerate all final payments as early as feasible. Possible causes for price increases are:

    Airline Taxes and Fuel Surcharge:

    Until the groups' airline tickets are paid in full and ticketed, the airline has the right to increase the cost of fuel and pass those fees onto you. Increases can be imposed at any time, without any prior notice, and the only way to avoid the charges is to accelerate final payment. Once received by Gate 1, your group tickets will be printed and you will thereby avoid any further increases. Once we receive the group's final payments and group leader/agent approve it, we will immediately issue your airline tickets. You will not be obligated for any additional fuel surcharges. Once paid for and ticketed, your airline tickets are non-refundable . We strongly urge all passengers to purchase travel insurance to protect your investment.

    Currency Fluctuations:

    All prices are based on current exchange rates and are subject to change. At approximately 30 days prior to final payment due date, Gate 1 will review the prices and will advise any changes resulting from currency fluctuations. We reserve the right to make adjustments until final payment is received.

Form of Payment (Groups):

Check, wire transfer or major credit cards. Credit card charges will be accepted only upon submission of a completed Gate 1 Travel Credit Card Form (PDF Version | html version). If not one of the traveling passenger(s), the card holder must submit a copy of the front and back of the card. Payments made by wire transfer must include an additional $25 wire transfer fee. There is a $30 fee for returned checks.

Scheduled Bus Tours:

Due to the limited capacity of our tours, we will periodically review the progress of your sales and reserve the right to recall group space without names and a $100 deposit at any time.

Single Accommodations:

Are on a request basis and a limited to 10% of the total number of passengers traveling. For Passion Play 2010 Single rooms can be requested and subject to availability in Oberammergau but available at others cities on the tour.

Trade Fairs:

We reserve the right to supplement the price and/or relocate the group in the event that the tour coincides with a trade fair, exhibition or other major local event affecting the normal group price for accommodations.

Air Deviations:

Any passenger deviating from the group flights will be subject to the airline charges for the deviating itinerary including any variations in taxes, weekend supplements, stopover fees and other charges, in addition to a $250 per person deviation fee. Negotiated group airfares do not apply to deviating passengers nor do they apply for scheduled bus tours or other packages.

Travel Protection (Insurance):

To help you handle unforeseen travel headaches, we recommend buying the Travel Protection Plan, an affordable travel insurance plan offered through Trip Mate. Trip Protection cannot be added after final payment. To read the Description of Coverage please visit tripmate.com/wp365G/.

Documents:

Provided full payment is received no later than your Final Payment Due date, documents will be sent via email 21 days prior to the onset of services. Paper documents, when requested, will be delivered approximately 14-21 days prior to the onset of services. A complete street address is required for mailed documents (no PO boxes). Charges per set of paper documents when e-documents are available: via Ground $20 per room; via Express $30 per room.

Insurance

Travel Protection (Insurance): Missing a vacation is bad enough. Losing the money you paid for your vacation is even worse. Trip insurance is therefore highly recommended by Gate 1 Travel. Your premium is related to your trip cost, so you don’t have to worry about being over-insured. Trip Protection Plan premiums are non-refundable. Travel Protection becomes effective at the time of receipt of the Travel Protection premium and may not be purchased after final payment has been made. Visit gate1travel.com/insurance/travelex.aspx for more information and to review the plan's terms and conditions.

Other FAQ

Know Before You Go

Although most of the planning and preparation is taken care of for you, there are still a few things you should know and some details you should take care of to ensure your comfort, safety and peace of mind. Please review the following information before your departure to ensure that any surprises along the way will only be pleasant ones.

Getting Ready to Go

Passports and Visas

It is each traveler's responsibility to have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of departure and a visa if required. Please check the information at www.gate1travel.com/visas.aspx for the specific country/region you are visiting for more details. Passengers who are not U.S. citizens must check with the respective consulate or a visa agency to determine what personal identification is required. Passport applications are available at most U.S. Post Offices, as well as at regional Passport Agencies.

Entry Requirements:

US citizens require a passport valid for six months beyond travel dates.

Always check to see where Viasa are required

Trip Preparation

A little pre-planning can make your trip go a lot smoother. Several weeks before your trip, make a list of what you will need to take with you. Make sure your personal documents (passports, visas) are in order and that you have enough prescription medications to last through the trip. We suggest that you make photocopies of passports, visas, and any other important travel documents and pack them separately from the originals. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names. If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll have copies for easier reporting and replacement. We recommend that you pack a portable alarm clock.

Making Telephone Calls from One Country to Another

When dialing a number from one country to another, you should proceed as follows: dial your country's Exit Code + destination Country Code + Phone Number.

For most countries, the exit code is 00. Exceptions include the USA and Canada (011), Hong Kong and Cambodia (001), Australia (0011), and Russia (8 Pause 10*). For Brazil, please consult with the local telephone company. If the international number you wish to call starts with a 0 (zero), you must drop this starting digit when dialing the number.

Health Information

Check with your personal physician for the latest overseas travel health information, or contact the Center for Disease Control’s travelers’ hotline at 404-332-4559, web site www.cdc.gov.

Changes or additions after departure are subject to local rates at the time of amendment and must be paid directly by the passenger to the service provider. There are no refunds for unused services.

TRAVELERS WITH DISABILITIES:

In order to fully enjoy your Gate 1 Travel tour, we recommend that you select a trip that is suitable to your physical capabilities. Tour participants requiring any form of assistance are required to notify Gate 1 Travel in writing prior to reservation for review and our agreement. Additionally the tour participant, must be accompanied by an individual responsible for providing those services. Tour managers, guides, drivers or other tour, hotel, ship personnel are not able to provide such assistance. Escorted tours are fast-paced, often requiring lengthy walks over uneven terrain. Clients with special needs may be better served independently. Gate 1 can suggest touring options based upon specific requirements. In order to participate in escorted tours, passengers must be able to understand and follow instructions given by the Tour Director at all times. Passengers may not interfere actively or passively with the successful operation of the tour, including but not limited to emergency situations.

Wheelchairs & Walkers:

International Tours: Hotels and cruises outside of the United States are not required to comply with ADA requirements and therefore may not have ramps, wide entryways or elevators to accommodate disabled passengers or devices such as wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters. Due to physical constraints and space limitations, wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters may not be taken aboard motor coaches.

USA Tours: Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), Gate 1 seeks to accommodate disabled travelers to the extent possible and consistent with the specific tour itinerary. Nevertheless, you may find that certain tour features may not be accessible to the extent that you require a wheelchair, scooter, or other special equipment to participate. We cannot provide individual assistance to travelers with wheelchairs or other mobility devices. We regret that some itineraries cannot accommodate wheelchairs or motorized scooters. Passengers are required to advise Gate 1 of their accessibility requirements prior to booking in order for Gate 1 to determine if reasonable accommodations are available. Gate 1 and its agents will endeavor to accommodate special access needs, however may not be held responsible in the event that we are unable to do so.

Service Animals: Service animals cannot be accommodated on international escorted tours. Passengers on USA escorted tours who require a service dog because of a disability should check with Gate 1 prior to booking a tour.

Gate 1 Travel reserves the right to remove any person from a tour who has not provided the required notification, has not received written confirmation from Gate 1, or does not comply with these regulations. All related expenses, including those to return home, will be borne by the passenger.

AIRLINES: Airline schedules and flights are subject to change without notice. Gate 1 Travel is not responsible for penalties incurred for tickets, international or domestic, not issued by Gate 1 Travel due to schedule and/or flight changes. Airline reservations completed online are subject to review and, should Gate 1 deem it necessary, may be rebooked to match minimum connecting time requirements and/or tour package itineraries, in which case you will be notified immediately. Airlines reserve the right to demand immediate issuance of tickets whenever they determine that specific flights are heavily booked even when normal ticketing rules do not require tickets to be issued until a later date. In this instance, Gate 1 will require immediate and full payment of the airfare as itemized on the invoice. This situation overrides invoice terms and conditions and payment due dates. If full payment is not received, seats will be cancelled by the airline and may not be available to be rebooked on the same flights or at the same airfare. Any replacement air arrangements and airfare will be the sole responsibility of the passenger.

Airline Tickets: Once full payment is received, Gate 1 airline tickets will be issued and are fully non-refundable. Should airline tickets require to be issued earlier than the Final Payment Due date, you may be required to pay a larger non-refundable deposit and/or complete full payment. Once issued, Published Instant Purchase Airfare tickets normally may be changed prior to the departure date and the airfare applied toward travel within 12 months of the original date of issue for a fee of $200 plus any difference in airfare; specific fees and policies may vary by airline.

Airline Seat Assignments: As a courtesy service, airline seat assignments are requested on your behalf and are displayed in order of Passenger #1, #2 and so on. Assignments reflect the best available seats at the time of booking. Some airlines and/or fare types do not allow for pre-seating and require this be done at airport check-in only; in this case, the display shows "N/A". Seats are subject to change by your airline(s) including, for example, when there is a schedule change or equipment change after your initial booking; this may cause seat assignments to be changed or even cancelled. In the event that you change seat assignments directly with your airline, changes will not be reflected on this display. At the time that Gate 1 travel documents are issued, the currently assigned seats will be listed based on the assignments stored in your airline reservation at that time. Should you have questions regarding your assignments, please email to info@gate1travel.com.

Airline Frequent Flier Programs: Passengers are responsible to contact their airline directly regarding mileage eligibility and accrual. Airline frequent flier programs determine whether to award miles in part or total based on their own rules which are updated frequently. Some discounted or promotional airfares as well as some code-share flights are not eligible for mileage accrual. Some private airfares, such as a "Gate 1 Travel Airfare", are not eligible for mileage or may qualify for reduced mileage, even if the same airline class of service is eligible for full mileage when sold as an "Instant Purchase" published airfare. Not all published airfares are eligible for mileage. Gate 1 Travel will record frequent flier numbers when provided by the passenger prior to travel documents being issued. However, the addition of frequent flier numbers to airline records does not guarantee mileage eligibility which is at the sole discretion of each airline. Airline schedule changes may result in flights which were originally eligible for mileage accrual no longer being eligible. We highly recommend passengers to provide their frequent flier account information whenever checking in online and/or at the airport check-in desk. After travel has commenced, it is often not possible to apply for frequent mileage credit. Passengers are also responsible to determine whether previously earned mileage may be applied to flights to secure upgrades.

Contact Information: Pursuant to TSA Secure Flight requirements, passengers are responsible to provide Gate 1 Travel with their name as it appears on their passport (or other government-issued I.D. when traveling), date of birth, gender, address, phone number, email and fax data for all passengers. Passengers must ensure that names are correctly listed on their invoice. Gate 1 Travel will not be responsible for passengers who do not receive an invoice or documents or are denied boarding due to inaccurate information.

Airline Name Changes: Any name change including minor spelling corrections may require airline reservations to be canceled and rebooked. Reservations are subject to current availability and pricing at the time of rebooking. Once airline tickets are issued, subsequent name corrections will be subject to an airline rebooking fee which may be as much as the full value of the airline ticket plus a $50 revision fee per change. Gate 1 will not be held responsible for the denial of services by a carrier due to any name discrepancy. Name changes must be advised in writing and forwarded to the attention of Customer Service, service@gate1travel.com.

Airline Taxes & Fuel Surcharges: If you purchased airfare, airline taxes and fuel surcharges are included. Prior to completion of full payment there is a potential for a price increase(s) due to increases in government-levied taxes and fees and/or fuel surcharges. To avoid potential increases, you may choose to accelerate your final payment in order that your tickets may be issued. Once issued, airline tickets are no longer subject to potential increases but are fully non-refundable. Certain overseas domestic flights are subject to air taxes which can only be paid locally; in these cases, the specific flights and amounts of those taxes are indicated in our package presentation and pre-departure documentation.

Schedule Changes: In the event of an airline schedule change, Gate 1 will make every effort to inform passengers of the schedule change and new flight schedule prior to departure. Gate 1 is not responsible for schedule changes including, when applicable, changes in routing and/or the number of stops in the itinerary. Gate 1 is unable to provide compensation for schedule changes, seat assignment modifications, or cancellations implemented by an airline. In the event of any change in flight itinerary made directly between passengers and their airline, it is the passengers' responsibility to advise Gate 1 of amended flight details in writing to service@gate1travel.com. Gate 1 cannot be held responsible for land services, including arrival and/or departure transfers, if flights are changed without its knowledge.

Hotel Accommodations: All rooms are standard twin-bedded (two single beds) rooms with private facilities, unless you have specifically requested and paid for an upgraded room category. Special requests such as bed types, smoking preference and connecting rooms are subject to availability. Room selection in all cases, unless otherwise reserved, is strictly at the discretion of the hotel's management on a run-of-house basis. Triple rooms consist of standard twin beds or one double bed plus a sofa/folding bed or cot for third person except in the U.S. and Canada, where triple rooms often consist of two double/queen beds for three persons; a fee may be charged by the hotel for the addition of a cot/rollaway. The number of persons accommodated does not dictate the room size. Although available at most 4 and 5 star hotels, use of air-conditioning abroad differs greatly from the United States. Many European hotels were built before central air-conditioning was introduced. Air-conditioning is often shut down at night and from the end until the start of the summer months. All hotel rates are based on Gate 1 Travel's agreements with its suppliers and are not negotiable. Hotel check-in time is generally not before 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon. Please be sure that adequate arrangements for accommodations have been taken into consideration when a late night flight is being used. If a day room is included in the itinerary, check-out will normally be 6:00 p.m. We reserve the right to make substitutions with hotels of equal standard. There will be no refunds for any difference in the cost of those accommodations.

Hotel & Cruise Profiles: Gate 1 Travel's hotel and cruise ship profiles are based upon information provided to Gate 1 Travel by hotel and cruise ship partners and their representatives, including images and descriptions of individual properties. Star-ratings may differ from country to country. Gate 1 Travel does its best to maintain current information, however is not responsible for any inaccuracies, changes in description details or amenities, or images provided by third parties.

Meals: As specified in each itinerary. Meals are based on the hotel's or restaurant's buffet or set menu. In general, beverages are not included, unless specifically stated. Although Gate 1 cannot make guarantees, every effort will be made to honor special dietary requests submitted in writing at least 72 hours prior to departure to info@gate1travel.com.

Transfers: Transfers are provided as indicated for each tour by car, minibus, or motor coach provided airfare is purchased from Gate 1. If you purchase a land-only tour, or if you deviate from the arrival and/or departure dates as stated in the itinerary, you will have the option to add transfer services to your reservation. Your arrival transfer is guaranteed for up to one hour from your scheduled arrival time in order to compensate for minor delays. Gate 1 Travel or the transfer company will not be responsible for flight delays, for any reason, beyond one hour from your originally scheduled arrival time. In case of a delay, whether due to flight delay, immigration and customs, or time spent reporting baggage damage or loss, it will be your responsibility to make other transfer arrangements such as a taxi. Transfer costs are not refundable and any additional expenses will be your responsibility. The cost of a transfer is more expensive than hiring a taxi, as a Gate 1 transfer necessarily includes round trip service, or 'dead-leg', meaning that our driver must come to the airport, hotel or pier only to pick you up and necessarily loses a one-way fare. Often the places of call (airports, seaports, hotels) demand entrance and parking fees, where drivers may have to wait for up to an hour. Gate 1 transfer drivers, while not employees of Gate 1, are reliable and work year-round for Gate 1. They ensure that you receive a full welcome service, transfer you to the correct location and are prepared to answer your questions along your ride. Passengers comfortable hiring a taxi on their own and do not require assistance will save money.

Sightseeing & Itinerary: Will be operated by motor-vehicle, its size dictated by the number of participants. Gate 1 tours have been designed to accommodate individuals as well as groups. The number of participants may vary during the tour, as Gate 1 Travel accommodates travelers arriving on different airlines and on different days of the week. Times listed in itineraries are approximate and meant only as guidelines. Some itineraries may have early morning start times for sightseeing in order to complete the touring during daylight hours or avoid afternoon heat in tropical and desert climates. It is your responsibility to arrive on time for all scheduled flights, cruises, and package components. Arriving late may be considered a "no-show", in which case you will not be eligible for refund for the unused service(s). We cannot guarantee the number of passengers who will be on any given tour. You may find that you are traveling with a sizeable group or only with your own companions. Services, however, will remain constant no matter the number of tour participants. Gate 1 imposes mandatory coach seat rotation with no exception. Some buses are equipped with toilet facility, however they are strictly intended for emergency use only. Persons requiring any assistance or who have any form of disability should refer to section "Travelers With Disabilities". On dates including, but not limited to religious holidays and national celebrations, some monuments and sites may be closed. On these occasions, touring itineraries may be amended to reflect these closures. Occasionally, during holidays and certain periods, and/or due to unforeseen circumstances including weather conditions there may be last-minute changes, sometimes after arrival, in affecting the sequence of the tour, locations visited and/or hotels. Therefore, we reserve the right to adjust the sequence and/or substitute any hotels with others of similar category. In such cases there will be no cost adjustment. National monuments and tourist sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure the monument's view. No tour will be canceled due to renovations, however Gate 1 will decide based on the conditions whether to amend an itinerary. Gate 1 itineraries may contain suggestions for activities for your leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute a recommendation nor an endorsement of any specific service provider and the decision to participate in any such activities should be made independently and with due consideration. Gate 1 is not responsible for any activities not expressly included in its programs.

Rail: Once full payment is received, Gate 1 will select train times, rail tickets will be issued and are fully non-refundable. Except where requested in writing prior to final payment, rail tickets will typically be reserved for departures between 9 am and 12 noon, subject to availability. For passengers traveling independently, requests for alternative times will be considered but are strictly subject to availability. Passengers traveling with a group may not request alternative train times. Once issued, rail tickets are valid for the dates and times specified. Some exchanges must be done locally at the station due to fare restrictions. Changes may be subject to local charges, fees, and fare increases. Once the booked train has departed, changes are no longer possible nor can amendments be completed on board the train. Gate 1 does not control seat assignments which are entirely at the discretion of the rail companies. Once rail tickets are issued they are fully non-refundable and non-changeable.

Optional Sightseeing Tours: A limited selection of optional sightseeing tours are available for purchase at any time until one week prior to departure. Those associated with escorted and guided programs will be available for purchase locally based upon availability. Some optional tours require a minimum number of participants and may not be operated; in such cases, the tour company will attempt to notify you locally, and you will receive a full refund upon your return home. Optional tours may be conducted in more than one language. Optional tours are subject to standard cancellation terms including being fully non-refundable once a trip has commenced.

Non-Operation of Escorted Tour: Escorted tour packages are based upon a minimum number of participants. Cancellation of any tour for lack of participation will be advised at least 30 days prior to the tour's departure, and all money will be refunded. Gate 1 Travel will not be held responsible for any costs relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of airline tickets or visa fees. Voluntary cancellations due to political instability, acts of terrorism, government intervention or US State Department warning will be subject to the above fees, provided the program is deemed (by Gate 1 Travel) able to continue. Should Gate 1 elect to cancel a departure for any of these reasons, every effort will be made to obtain refunds from suppliers, however no guarantees can be provided on their behalf.

Group Harmony: To ensure the desired group synergy, Gate 1 Travel reserves the right to accept, reject or expel any individual who is deemed disruptive or incompatible with the interests of the group. All expenses to do so will be borne by the passenger.

SEA & RIVER CRUISES:

Cabin Assignment (Sea Cruises): Cabins are assigned in a general cabin category on run-of-ship basis within 30 days of departure. Gate 1 cannot guarantee a specific assignment. Requests for dining room seating will be accepted by the maître d'hotel on sailing day. Gate 1 will accept requests for dining time preference, but cannot guarantee confirmation prior to embarkation. Shore excursions may only be purchased aboard ship.

Cabin Assignment (River Cruises): Depending upon the vessel, cabin numbers may be assigned at the time of reservation. Assignments are subject to change. We also reserve the right to amend cabin assignments onboard without prior notification. Special seating requests will be accepted by the maître d'hotel on sailing day. Shore excursions which are not included in the cruise package may only be purchased aboard ship unless an optional tour package is available for advance purchase.

Ship & Itinerary Changes: Cruise itineraries and ships are subject to change without notice. Furthermore, cruise ships may be chartered and/or departure dates canceled, in which case all monies will be refunded. Gate 1 Travel takes no responsibility for ship substitutions or itinerary changes imposed by a cruise line and is not responsible for any losses you may incur including the issuance and/or cancellation of airline tickets or visa fees.

River Cruise Inability to Sail: Neither Gate 1 Travel nor the owners or operators of the vessels shall be liable for delay or inability to sail or perform due to any condition caused by or arising from water level, strikes, lockout, civil or labor issues, explosion, fire, collision, vessel breakdown or damage to the vessel, its hull, machinery or fittings. Neither shall they be responsible for issues caused by or arising from civil commotion, riot, insurrection, war, government restraint, requisitioning of the vessel, political disturbance, acts or threats of terrorism, inability to secure or failure of supplies including fuel, Acts of God, or other circumstances beyond their control. In such cases, part or all of the cruise itinerary may be operated by motor coach and accommodations provided by hotels. If this becomes necessary, Gate 1 Travel will endeavor to provide equal or similar services, however no tour will be canceled and no monetary compensation will be made for those changes.

Medical Services: Many ships do not carry a doctor or nurse onboard. Should medical attention be required, local services will be contacted. Resulting charges will be the responsibility of the passenger. Gate 1 and the cruise ship operator are not responsible for the services provided.

As a result, Gate 1 is not liable for any negligent or willful act or failure to act of any such person or entity, or of any other third party. Without limitation, Gate 1 is not responsible for any injury, loss, or damage to person or property, death, delay or inconvenience in connection with the provision of any goods or services occasioned by or resulting from, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of government, force majeure, acts of war or civil unrest, insurrection or revolt, strikes or other labor activities, criminal or terrorist activities of any kind, or the threat thereof, overbooking or downgrading of accommodations, structural or other defective conditions in hotels or other lodging facilities, mechanical or other failure of airplanes or other means of transportation or for any failure of any transportation mechanism to arrive or depart timely or safely, dangers associated with or bites from animals, pests or insects, marine life or vegetation of any sort, dangers incident to recreational activities such as swimming, kayaking, sailing, canoeing, rafting, hiking, walking, bicycling, etc., sanitation problems, food poisoning, lack of access to or quality of medical care, difficulty in evacuation in case of a medical or other emergency, illness, epidemics or the threat thereof or for any other cause beyond the direct control of Gate 1. In addition, I release Gate 1 from its own negligence and assume all risk thereof.

ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I am aware that travel such as that I am undertaking involves hazardous activities, with a risk of illness, injury or death which may be caused by forces of nature, animals, insects or flora, the negligence of Gate 1, or other persons and companies known or unknown, or of willful or criminal conduct of third parties. I am aware that weather conditions may be severe, adverse and/or unpleasant. I am also aware that medical services or facilities may not be readily available or accessible during some or all of the time during which I am participating on the trip.
