Suppliers: Travel Agent is not the source or supplier of the travel services requested or booked and acts solely as a booking agent for principle supplier cruise lines, hotels, airlines, ground transportation, tour operators, destination management companies and any other companies providing accommodations, transportations, tours and/or other services (hereinafter “Suppliers”). Each of these Suppliers is an independent entity with its own management and is not subject to the control of the Travel Agent. Suppliers have their own terms, conditions and contracts covering cancellation policies, change fees and penalties. Client may be bound by those contracts, regardless of whether you receive notice of their terms. By signing below, you are consenting to those terms and conditions. Travel Agent has no special knowledge regarding the financial condition of the Suppliers. Travel Agent is not responsible for any acts or omissions of the Suppliers or their failure to provide goods or services or adhere to their own schedules and/or pricing. Client agrees that any recourse for such failure or event shall be with the defaulting Supplier, and not with Travel Agent. Travel Agent is not responsible for the cancellation of any service or refunds from Suppliers that may cease operations, whether temporarily or permanently, for any reason.

Travel Vouchers:  Client understands and agrees that unused portions of travel vouchers are non-refundable.

Pricing:  Price quotes are applicable to the date and time at which they are provided. Rates are always subject to change and are not guaranteed until booked. Quotes in foreign currency are subject to fluctuations depending on exchange rates and international credit card issuer fees. Travel Agent is not responsible for any price increases due to fuel surcharges, government-imposed taxes and/or fees, or supplier-imposed increases during travel. Travel arrangements involving airline and cruise components are subject to supplemental price increases that may be imposed by the supplier and/or government after you have completed your purchase. Client hereby consents to such price increases and authorizes Client’s credit or debit card to be charged.

Scope:  Only the goods and services specifically stated to be included in the offering, package or itinerary are included in the prices quoted by Travel Agent or Supplier and/or paid by Client. Transportation to a destination or property, shore excursions, tours, side trips, lodging, food and beverage, or other goods and services not specifically stated to be included will be the responsibility of the Client.

 

Check-Ins and Departures:  It is Client’s responsibility to reconfirm all domestic and international flight details and recommended check-in times prior to departure. Checking in later than these recommended times may result in denied boarding. Recommended check-in times are subject to change without notification. It is the Traveler’s responsibility to check airport conditions or rules that might require earlier arrival times. This information can be found when entering your confirmation number on the airline’s website. Travel Agent does not assume any responsibility for any flight or schedule changes. Please note that certain countries impose departure taxes that require payment in cash.                                                         

Overbookings and Aircraft/Vessel Changes:  Flights, tours, and cruises may be overbooked, or there may be a change in an aircraft or vessel. Any person denied boarding for overbooking or aircraft/vessel changes may be entitled to a compensatory payment from the Supplier. Travel Agent cannot guarantee against and is not liable for boarding denials, fare or accommodation downgrades, or other losses caused by Supplier overbookings or changes.

Travel Protection/Insurance:  For your protection, we strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation and travel accident insurance. Travel Agent is not qualified or authorized to answer questions about benefits, coverage, exclusions, or conditions of any protection plans offered or purchased, nor to evaluate the adequacy of the existing coverage. No representation or description of the insurance made by Travel Agent constitutes a binding assurance or promise regarding any insurance policy offered or purchased. For questions or more information on any plans offered or purchased, please call the number included on the travel protection quote or plan provided by Travel Agent. Unless noted, travel insurance is not included in the cost of your itinerary. Information for travel insurance will be sent to you within a reasonable time frame based on trip and components.

Credit Cards:  We strongly recommend that you use a credit card when providing payment for travel services so that you can exercise your rights under the Fair Credit Billing Act if you do not receive the services purchased. By signing below, Client acknowledges and accepts that there are cancellation policies, change fees and penalties that apply to Client’s travel plans and services as set by Suppliers. If for any reason Client’s credit card charges are later declined, reversed or Travel Agent is unable to receive payment for the travel plans and services, Client acknowledges that this is a binding contract and Travel Agent will be entitled to recovery, including reasonable attorneys’ fees in connection with collection. If “Luxury Travel Works” is the merchant on your credit card transaction, Client agrees that Travel Agent’s services consist of facilitating the sale and paying the Suppliers, and once Travel Agent provides said services, Client agrees not to dispute the credit card charge. If a Supplier does not provide the service or ceases operations, Client’s only recourse will be against the Supplier. If a Supplier goes bankrupt, Client’s only recourse will be to file a claim with the Supplier’s bankruptcy court.

Waiver of Liability:  Travel Agent shall not be liable for any accident, injury, property damage, refund, delay, inconvenience or personal loss to Client or to those traveling with Client in connection with any travel services we have booked, including, but not limited to: acts of God, weather conditions, natural disasters, acts of government or other authorities, wars, civil disturbances, riots, strikes, epidemics or pandemics, acts of terrorism, breakdown in equipment, theft, delay, fuel increases, or cancellation or changes in itineraries or schedules. Travel Agent shall not be liable for any loss which may be caused by (1) any defaults, wrongful or negligent acts or omissions of any Supplier; (2) any defect in or failure of any vehicle, craft, equipment, or instrumentality owned, operated or otherwise used or provided by the Suppliers; (3) any wrongful or negligent acts or omissions on the part of any other party not under the control of Travel Agent; and (4) any Supplier price drop after Client’s travel arrangements have been confirmed, paid in full, or ticketed.

Client hereby releases Travel Agent from all claims arising out of any provision covered in this agreement. Client agrees that the courts in Davidson County, Nashville, Tennessee will be the exclusive jurisdiction for all claims brought by Client or Travel Agent, and by entering into this Agreement Client hereby submits to the personal jurisdiction of those courts.
