Reservations and Payments:

Reservations and payments may be made online using the link provided to you or by phone at 1-855-468-3666. Planning travel takes time and effort and many costs are incurred before you ever depart. A non-refundable per person deposit in the amount described in proposal/confirmation, is required by due date(s) in order to secure reservation. In addition many of our suppliers are paid in advance and payments may be non-refundable. Deposits, periodic, and final payments are due in our office by the due date associated therewith. Payment due dates vary according to your Vacation Package and chosen payment plan. Please refer to your invoice for exact payment due dates or contact our office.

Personal checks will be accepted, although reservation is not considered complete and travel documents will not be issued until the check has cleared and monies have been received by the issuing bank.

We cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any documentation within 7 days of our sending it to you.

 

Payments, Cancellations and Refunds/Credits:

A minimum of 35% of the total trip cost will be retained as a non-refundable payment for services rendered by TT, including time, effort, resources, risk, and processing fees invested and/or incurred by TT.  As described above, we are required to pay all suppliers well in advance of your tour date.  Any due refunds or credits will be reduced by any non-refundable payments/deposits made by TT to secure airfare, transportation, private drivers and/or guides, accommodations, travel insurance, meals, show tickets, admission tickets to attractions, etc. Also deducted from the net refundable amount will be any adjustments for room rate changes created by the cancellation (i.e., quad to triple; triple to double, etc.). Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of refund.  We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for supplier bankruptcy or insolvency.

Changes to Reservation:

Any change made to a reservation once payment has been received must be requested in writing by emailing changes@tenontours.com and may be subject to a change fee. In most circumstances, TT is subject to the rules and fees of third-party vendors and suppliers and therefore change requests are not guaranteed. If the requested change is possible, any fees incurred by the vendor or supplier, as well as an administration fee will be added to the reservation. 


Refunds:

Refunds will be processed within 30 days of acceptance of the change/cancellation request, based on approval and in accordance with the change/cancellation policy stated herein. If original payment(s) were made by credit card, any due refund will be credited back to the credit card used for the transaction if the payment was made within 90 days prior to the acceptance/approval of the change or cancellation. If received more than 90 days prior to, or the original payment was made by check, a check will be issued for the refund amount. An additional 14 days may be required for check refunds. 



Special Circumstances / Custom Bookings:

At times, there may be a non-refundable deposit required by a vendor/supplier to guarantee a reservation. If such a non-refundable deposit was paid by TT to any supplier, this amount will be deducted from any refund due.



Tour Cancellation by TT:

TT reserves the right to not accept a reservation without having to provide a reason.  Also, TT reserves the right to cancel any tour at any time. In the unlikely event that a cancellation of the scheduled tour becomes necessary at the discretion of TT (and not due to force majeure), we will notify the participant at the earliest possible time and will provide an alternative option at no additional charge. If the alternative option is not accepted by the participant, TT will provide a full refund of all monies paid to TT, provided the option is declined in writing within 7 days of receipt of cancellation notification. 

 

Force Majeure:

TT is not responsible for cancellations due to circumstances beyond TT’s control, or force majeure event including without limitation, political/civil unrest, war or threat of war, riots, closure of airports, or ports, industrial disputes, terrorist activity, natural and nuclear disasters, fire, volcanic eruption, environmental pollution or contamination, inclement weather, earthquake, low or high water levels, flood, water or power shortages or failures, tropical storms or hurricanes, riots or civil commissions or disturbances, and any other acts of a similar nature, quarantine restrictions, government health advisories, pandemic, epidemic, or warnings or alerts of any kind of nature, or health risk, Acts of God, sickness, breakdown, customs regulations, strikes, hotel overbookings, or adverse weather conditions and any other similar events outside of the control to TT. In the event that any of these conditions apply, TT shall be excused, discharged, and released from performance to the extent such performance is so limited or prevented, without liability of any kind including liability to make any refund.



Cancellation or Rescheduling by Tour Guide or Other:

In the event that a third-party tour operator or other chooses to change the departure date, the standard cancellation charges remain effective for the original departure date. Cancellation of a tour without TT’s consent is subject to standard cancellation charges. 



Cancellation of Confirmed Airfares:

Most airlines require a non-refundable payment in full of published airfare at the time of booking to secure the best available schedule and fare. No cash refunds will be issued by TT for air cancellations. Each airline’s cancellation policies, restrictions, and conditions vary, so please check with the air carrier’s directly for information on available credit towards a future air ticket. Your contract with regard to airfare is with the air carrier.  TT shall have no liability for any air carrier’s failure to provide a refund or for airline insolvency or bankruptcy.

 

Changes to Itineraries:

TT reserves the right to make changes to its published itineraries which we deem insignificant and are due to reasons beyond our control. In such cases, we will arrange for the substitution of comparable services. 

While no changes are anticipated, there may be occasions when certain alterations become necessary.  These can be due to religious holidays, national celebrations, or unforeseen events including weather, governmental closures, acts of God, or any other reason. TT reserves the right to change the itinerary due to such unforeseen circumstances or emergencies. Additionally, historic sites undergo renovations from time to time which can obscure viewing or otherwise change the nature of visiting these sites.  No tours will be cancelled due to renovations, although TT may choose to amend itineraries for such sites.   These changes will not be considered material changes and will not be considered cause for cancellation by the customer.  



Travel Documents and Destinations:

By offering reservations for travel in particular international destinations, TT does not represent or warrant that travel to such areas is advisable or without risk. It is your responsibility to be aware of travel warnings and advisories as announced by the U.S. Department of State, Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), or advisories pertaining to your chosen destination(s).  Should you choose to travel to a country that has been issued a travel warning or advisory, TT will not be liable for damages or losses that result from travel to such destinations.

You and any minors traveling with you must be in possession of a machine-readable passport valid for 6 months after their trip return date along with applicable visas. Some countries require that your passport have two to four blank visa/stamp pages. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met.  For information about passport requirements you can visit the State Department’s website at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports.html.  It is your sole responsibility to secure and/or pay for any and all visas, reciprocity fees, affidavits, immunizations, etc. that are required to be permitted entry into each destination. In some countries you may be subject to entry (reciprocity) fees and/or departure taxes/ exit fees which will be collected at the airports upon entry/departure by local government authorities.  Please note that entry to any country may be refused even if the required information and travel documents are complete. 

 

When traveling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry at least two forms of acceptable identification in order to board a flight. 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 such data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records.   For more information you can visit the TSA website at https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification. 

 

For up-to-date detailed information on travel documents and visas, entry/exit taxes and further information on entry and exit requirements, please check with your local consular services. Obtaining and carrying these documents is your sole responsibility. TT bears no responsibility for such information and will not be responsible for advising and/or obtaining required travel documentation for you, or for any delays, damages, and/or losses including missed portions of your vacation related to improper documentation or government decisions about entry. 

 

Health: Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your doctor for current recommendations before you depart. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip. Inoculation requirements can be found on the Center for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/. 

 

Disinsection: Most countries reserve the right to disinsect aircraft if there is a perceived threat to public health, agriculture, or environment.  While this is not a common practice, we want you to be aware that it is a possibility. This process includes the following: (1) spray the aircraft cabin with an aerosolized insecticide while passengers are on board or (2) treat the aircraft's interior surfaces with a residual insecticide while passengers are not on board. For more information you can visit the U.S. Department of transportation website at: https://www.transportation.gov/airconsumer/spray. 


Air Transportation:

Fuel-related fees charged by individual airlines and government departure taxes/fees are passed to the tour participant and are subject to change at any time. Any change in these fees will be adjusted accordingly on your account no later than 10 days prior to departure and, in the event of an increase, must be paid in full regardless of whether the account was previously paid in full.

Travelers are responsible for confirming that their baggage complies with all applicable airline restrictions and regulations and should report any lost luggage to the airline directly.  Seat assignments are at the discretion of the airline.



Hotel Accommodations:

All accommodations have been arranged by TT as listed on your itinerary/invoice. Hotels may vary by destination, city, and week of travel. TT reserves the right to substitute hotel accommodations of similar quality at any time, given the substituted accommodations are in the same city and destination and with the same arrival/departure schedule. Check-in/check-out times, amenities, and hotel policies vary by hotel. For tours operated by third-party operators, hotel selection is at the discretion of the operator and subject to change according to their stated policy. It is your responsibility to review any selected properties and its quality, location, and amenities in advance and it is understood that TT is not responsible for relocating any customer to an alternative property based on the general dissatisfaction by the traveler, unless agreed upon in writing. 



Occupancy Rates:

Participants are registered and priced at double occupancy by default unless otherwise noted on their registration form. TT makes all reasonable efforts to accommodate occupancy requests, but cannot be responsible if requests are not available.  If the hotel charges an additional fee for special occupancy requests the guest will be solely responsible for that fee.



Transportation:

The type of transportation provided by TT varies by package type, week of travel, group size, and individual preferences. Please check your confirmation/invoice for details. Private transfers are used for escorted/semi-escorted tours when possible, but scheduled service routes may be utilized at times for small groups. In the event that you miss the scheduled departure for any event or transfer, it is your responsibility to arrange transportation to the next arrival/departure point to rejoin the scheduled tour/itinerary. No refunds will be issued for missed transportation. Chauffeured and self-drive packages require specific requests to be determined and agreed upon by you and TT prior to confirming the reservation. It is understood that TT reserves these services through other suppliers and is not responsible for additional standard fees applied by the supplier, or fees that may be charged due to a change in the original reservation or itinerary.  

 

Rental Cars: Any additional fees incurred due to upgrades, fuel, insurance, parking, tolls, and/or moving violations are the responsibility of the customer/driver on record.  Any such notices and payment requests received by TT will be forwarded to the responsible party to settle such charges.

 

SPECIAL NOTICE: Delays, cancellations and overbooking may occur on air flights, transportation, accommodations, and land reservations by the participating carriers, hotels, and suppliers. While TT will do everything possible to avoid these inconveniences, it cannot and will not assume responsibility for the respective carriers, hotels, and suppliers.




Optional Tours and Excursions:

TT has made arrangements with various suppliers in each destination to offer a variety of optional tours and excursions, in which vouchers/tickets (“documents”), or confirmation numbers will be given to you upon purchase. It is your sole responsibility to retain all confirmations and/or documents. No refunds will be given for lost, stolen, or unused confirmations and/or documents.

If we suggest optional tours and excursions, such suggestions do not constitute our endorsement.  In such a case you will be subject to the terms and conditions of the supplier of the activity and your only recourse in case of damage will be against the supplier of the alternate activity.

 

Gratuities:

Gratuities are encouraged for various services provided such as private drivers, guides, and servers and are the responsibility of the traveler unless otherwise stated on your proposal/invoice. We recommend reviewing https://www.tenontours.com/tipping/ for suggested amounts.

Unused Tour Arrangements:

No refunds or credits will be provided to participant by TT for any unused accommodations, flights, services, or other package features unless agreed to in writing by both parties. TT strongly recommends that travelers purchase the available Travel Protection Plan, which, in accordance with its terms, may cover trip interruption due to certain medical or family emergencies. 



Travel Protection Insurance Plan:

TT strongly recommends the purchase of the available travel protection plan, including Cancel for Any Reason coverage, to provide protection to travelers in the event of certain types of trip cancellation, trip interruption, travel delay, emergency medical assistance and transportation, and delayed or lost baggage. Certain countries have a requirement for foreign visitors to have valid medical insurance on entry. TT cannot be held responsible for denied entry if a guest is unable to provide details to authorities of insurance or denial of entry for any reason. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available. We require each traveler to indicate whether they either accept or decline the available travel protection plan.

 

TT does work with a Travel Protection Provider. See website or brochure for full complete details and terms.  Pre-existing medical conditions are covered if insurance premium is paid within 7 days of trip deposit.
