Change Fees

A minimum fee of $100 may be charged when arrangements are altered at the traveler’s or travel agent’s request after the initial deposit has been received. Multiple change fees may be incurred if a desired change causes changes in other elements of the tour. Additional supplier penalties may be imposed.

Weather

Safety is our primary concern. Please note that on some tours, it may be necessary to modify the itinerary due to weather. If so, we will endeavor to add other sights and activities to replace those omitted. If the itinerary is modified to one that is less expensive than the original, the client will be refunded the difference in cost between the original and modified itineraries. If the itinerary is modified to one that is more expensive than the original, the client’s advance approval will be obtained and the client will be charged the difference between the original and modified itineraries. If a tour is cancelled and no substitute tour is available or acceptable to the client, the client will be refunded the full cost of the tour. The client is responsible for all additional transportation or lodging costs that are necessitated by weather. In addition, if a client has planned to travel by air to a tour or lodging facility that can also be accessed by ground transportation, there will be no refund if the air transportation is cancelled and the client chooses not to access the tour or lodging facility by ground transportation. There are no refunds if a tour operates but the client decides due to weather or any other reason not to participate. We strongly recommend travel insurance to help protect against unforeseen circumstances.

Such services are subject to the terms and conditions of those suppliers as well as those contained herein. By accepting a proposal from ECD, I hereby release and discharge ECD and its respective owners and employees from and against any and all liability arising from my participation in any tour arranged by ECD on my behalf. I agree that ECD has no liability whatsoever for any injury, damage, loss, accident, delay, or any other incident which may be caused by the negligence, defect, default of any company or person in performing these services; and in consideration of the benefits I receive from ECD services, I fully release ECD from all such liabilities or claims. As the parent or legal guardian of any children under 18 years of age that may be traveling with me, I release and discharge ECD on their behalf as well in this regard.

Activities

Please note that you may be required to sign a liability waiver before you can participate in certain activities that are included in your package. Copies can be viewed in advance upon request.

Additional Charges & transfers by private vehicles

Please note that transfers by private vehicles are quoted based on an estimated period of time. If the actual time used exceeds the time included in the cost, additional charges will be incurred and charged. Any wait time for an airport arrival exceeding half an hour after the plane’s scheduled arrival time due to delays for any reason will be at the traveler’s expense and will be billed accordingly. This also applies for any private tour that exceeds the time included in the proposal and cost.

All confirmed guests will be required to sign a Credit Card Authorization Form at the time of booking. Other additional charges incurred during your trip will be billed directly to your Credit Card at the end of your travels as authorized by you on this authorization form. These refer to any extra services or incidentals incurred after the start of your trip and may include but are not limited to: an additional transfer or tour, an additional hotel night/room, additional ski lessons, additional traveler or any emergency arrangements.

ALL hotel incidentals are to be paid directly by the traveler upon checking out of each property. Failing to due so will result in your Credit Card being charged.

Identification and Immigration

Clients are advised to travel with government-issued identification and proof of citizenship for all party members at all times. Effective, January 23, 2007, ALL persons, including U.S. & Canadian citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport. Parents traveling with children and/or infants are advised to travel with identification and proof of citizenship for each child. If crossing an international border when both parents are not present, the traveling parent may be required to provide a notarized statement from the other parent allowing the child to travel out of the country.

Failure to provide such evidence may prevent entry into that country. Past felony convictions may disqualify individuals from entry into foreign countries. Clients are advised that a D.W.I. (Driving While Intoxicated), or D.U.I. (Driving under the Influence) may be considered a felony in other countries, including Canada. It is the client’s sole responsibility to ensure the immigration eligibility of all traveling party members for any foreign countries included in this itinerary.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

We highly recommend that you obtain Trip Cancellation Insurance. A short term travel insurance policy can cover non-refundable trip costs due to personal or family illness or accident.
