AIRLINES
Resorts & Charted Courses has no control over any airline operations and is not responsible for schedule changes, delays or cancellations. Airline delays and any extra expenses incurred are the sole responsibility of the airline.

HOTELS, CRUISE SHIPS, SAFARI CAMPS
Resorts & Charted Courses or its independent suppliers may find it necessary to make substitutions in accommodations due to circumstances beyond their control. Normally substitutions are of superior or equal quality.

REFUNDS & CANCELLATIONS
Each tour or cruise vendor/supplier will determine its cancellation policy, and this schedule will be published and made available to you. Additionally, you may be liable for any non-refundable deposits paid to third-party suppliers on your behalf. There is no refund for a partially completed tour/cruise or for unused services of any kind. Trip cancellation and personal coverage insurance is highly recommended.

PRICE INCREASES
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. You hereby consent to any such price increases and authorize your credit or debit card to be used for them. Suppliers have their own contracts covering cancellation penalties and other terms and conditions, and you may be bound by those contracts regardless of whether you receive notice of their terms.

FLASH PROMOTIONS OR "SALES" - PRICE REDUCTIONS
Resorts & Charted Courses will not be held responsible when a third-party supplier reduces pricing previously published, and travel arrangements have been confirmed or paid based upon the previously published pricing. It is not the responsibility of Resorts & Charted Courses to monitor changes to any supplier's promotional marketing, but if such change should occur and is brought to the attention of our company in a timely fashion, Resorts & Charted Courses will negotiate where possible with said supplier to make a suitable adjustment or to issue a refund accordingly. Resorts & Charted Courses, however, will not be held liable to compensate for a supplier's price reduction if the supplier refuses accommodation and/or compensation.

TRAVEL INSURANCE
Although optional, medical travel insurance and trip cancellation insurance is highly recommended to protect against the unexpected. Our program allows you to travel worry free with: 1) insurance coverage for trip cancellation or interruption 2) insurance coverage for illness or injury while abroad 3) coverage for emergency medical evacuation 4) reimbursement for baggage loss, theft or damage 5) 24-hour assistance anywhere in the world.
