The following Terms and Conditions of Sales apply to all transactions. The traveler and any credit card holders making payment on behalf of the traveler, agree to be bound by such Terms and Conditions of Sales when the traveler accepts the arrangements provided to traveler by payment of the Land Deposit (see Section 2.5).

1. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS


2. PAYMENT POLICY


3. CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY


4. HEALTH AND SPECIAL MOBILITY NEEDS

Avanti Destinations recommends all travelers see their physician prior to booking and at least 6 weeks before departure in order to ensure all necessary health precautions have been taken. Some vaccinations require more than one dose with a period of weeks between injections.

In some cases, the nature of a destination that Avanti Destinations offers may be unsuitable for those who use a wheelchair or who have a lack of mobility. Requests for special accommodations and services to meet specific physical requirements - such as wheelchair-accessible rooms, tours, or transfers - must be made at the time of booking (prior to the initial payment) and require the submission of a completed Special Mobility Needs Form detailing the limits of mobility and a description of any mobility-assistance devices. Failure to correctly submit this information may result in a disruption of service and/or increased cost to the traveler. Accommodation and service requests are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. Further, Avanti Destinations cannot accept responsibility for the standards of the facilities requested, as The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is only applicable within the borders of the U.S. Standards of hotel, tours or transfer facilities for individuals outside U.S. borders are governed by local country regulation and vary country to country.

7. TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

Provided full payment has been received on time and registration completed electronic travel documents will be sent no later than 4 weeks prior to departure once all services are confirmed.

Avanti Destinations must be notified 60 days in advance of the travel date if travel documents should be mailed to a different street address than the agency of record, such as the Travel Agent's home office or directly to the traveler. Once travel documents have been sent, any costs incurred due to shipping address changes will be the responsibility of the traveler. Avanti Destinations is not responsible for lost or stolen physical documents; therefore, any re-issuance of documents may be assessed at their full face value and may include an increase in cost.
