YOUR AGREEMENT WITH AMAZING JOURNEYS, LLC

By using our website, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Payments: We cannot be responsible for cancelled reservations due to declined credit or debit cards. We accept all major credit cards, personal checks 15 days or more prior to the travel date, cashier’s checks, and money orders (checks, cashier’s checks and money orders payable in US Dollars).

Travel Documents: Thoroughly review the itinerary and tickets in their entirety. Verify all passenger accommodations, ascertain that all names are correct, and match the documentation that you will be using for identification. Many travel suppliers require pre-registration forms completed online or via fax. These forms must be completed prior to the trip; it is your responsibility to make certain this has been done prior to your vacation. Suppliers may charge a substantial fee plus applicable fare increases for changes made after the tickets or documents are issued.

Responsibility: Amazing Journeys and any sponsoring organization act only in the capacity of agents for the suppliers of the travel services named in your itinerary or otherwise providing service in connection with this trip (“the Suppliers”), including cruise lines, airlines, hotels, sightseeing tour operators, bus lines, shore excursion companies, and providers of entertainment.

We assume no responsibility for any personal injury, property damage, or other loss, accident, delay, inconvenience, or irregularity which may be occasioned either by reason (1) any act or omission of any of the Suppliers (2) any matter beyond our exclusive control including but not limited to a delay or cancellation of a flight that causes the participant to miss any portion of the trip. We do not guarantee any prices or the quality of any services. We have no special knowledge regarding the financial condition of the Suppliers, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which you may travel.

For information concerning possible dangers at destinations, we recommend contacting the Travel Warnings Section of the U.S. State Department at (202) 647-5225 or www.travel.state.gov and click on “Travel Warnings.” For medical information, we recommend contacting the Centers for Disease Control at (877) FYI-TRIP or www.cdc.gov/travel.  You assume full and complete responsibility for checking and verifying all passport and visa requirements of the destinations, as well as the conditions regarding health, safety, security, political stability, and labor or civil unrest at such destinations.

We reserve the right to change the itinerary of the trip, delete and/or substitute cities to be visited, change the class of service and the mode of transportation, all without prior notice, to the extent that such services and accommodations offered cannot be supplied due to delays, unsuitability, mechanical problems, weather, change of ownership or other causes beyond our exclusive control. Any additional costs will be borne by you. We further reserve the right to withdraw the trip prior to the date of departure.

The rights and remedies made available under this agreement are in addition to any other rights and remedies available under applicable law. Your acceptance of any refund waives the additional remedies.  Under no circumstances will we be responsible for damages in excess of the amount paid to us by you. Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this agreement shall be determined solely by the courts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and you hereby consent to the jurisdiction of said courts. You agree to present any claims against us within 30 days after the tour ends and to file any suit within one year of the incident, and you acknowledge that this expressly limits the applicable statute of limitations to one year. You will be liable for our attorney costs if you are unsuccessful in any legal action against us.

Please note that your decision not to travel due to State Department advisories or fear of travel will constitute cancellation by you. No refund or credit will be given for any unused features or early departures for any reason.

Cancellation by Us: We may cancel any tour at any time before departure for any reason without limitation. We may cancel if we deem the number of passengers signed up for a given tour to be insufficient to operate the tour. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to keep the itinerary as it has been published; however, the final itinerary may vary due to third parties’ schedules, availability, and other factors beyond our control. We may in our sole discretion substitute services or goods of similar quality for any service or good stated in the itinerary.
