Easy & Comfortable Approaches To Make Holiday Plan With Us
RESERVATIONS & PAYMENT
Atlantis Tours must have a copy of the passport for all bookings. It avoids any misunderstandings concerning passengers' correct names and is needed for entering TSA information for the flight tickets. To book a tour, you will fill out a form. This booking agreement will be binding by paying the deposit of $1000 per person for Land Only tours. International flight is due upon booking and will be added to the deposit. The final balance is due 40 days before departure. Checks, Direct Deposits, VISA, MasterCard, and Amex are accepted as forms of payment. The booking invoice must be reviewed and verified, and Atlantis Tours must be contacted immediately if there seems to be anything incorrect. Atlantis Tours cannot be held responsible if we are not notified of inaccuracies within 3 days of sending the invoice. We reserve the right to correct pricing in case of a billing error.
Each passenger is responsible for bringing the necessary travel documents, such as passport and visa, flight tickets, tour and accommodation documents sent by Atlantis Tours. The passports must be valid for a minimum of six (6) months after the end of the trip. We will write the visa rules and information in the specific tour program.
The name in the passport must match the name on the airline ticket. Any changes to your flight ticket will be considered a cancellation and new booking due to the rules of the airline companies. Tour documents are normally sent 21-15 days before departure and sent electronically with full payment. In case of a client is denied entry to a country on the border for any reason, Atlantis Tours cannot be held responsible for the accommodation or return flight changes of flights. We will do our best to assist the situation.
GENERAL CANCELLATION RULES
Flight tickets are non-refundable. Cancellation of land only-tours, 75 days prior to departure: $200; 74-50 days: $1000, less than 50 days: nonrefundable. Cancellation fees may also apply to any additional services, including accommodations, independently supplied services, cruises, and optional excursions reserved before, during, and after the tour. Please note that Safari-tours in Africa have a different deposit and cancellation policy. Cancellations must be sent by email. A change of itinerary or traveler name (substitution) after receipt of deposit will be treated as a cancellation and new reservation; standard cancellation fees apply. Trip cancellation insurance is recommended.
The client is highly recommended to have trip cancellation- and travel insurance. Trip cancellation will protect you if sickness occurs before your trip starts. It is recommended to have travel insurance to protect you from sickness and protect your luggage and personal belongings. Atlantis Tours is not responsible for loss, damage, or theft of luggage or personal belongings, or for personal injury, accident, or illness. Atlantis Tours offers Allianz Global Protection.
Airfare is booked in economy class and is non-refundable (if requesting a specific carrier, an additional charge may apply) from the city specified in the itinerary. The tour package price reflects airfare currently in effect & is subject to change until ticketed. Inquire about airfare options from your home city. Passengers coming from different cities booked or deposited at different times may be booked on alternate routings/different flights. Passengers are responsible for delays on domestic flights (purchased as separate tickets) in connection with an international flight. If using frequent flyer miles, participants must book directly with the carrier.
Purchase of a domestic ticket to connect with International Flight:
It is recommended that you do not purchase airline tickets until the land portion of your tour is guaranteed to operate.
If booking a domestic flight to connect with the trans-Atlantic flight, an overnight (at least for eastbound travel) or an early flight (with at least one backup flight available) is recommended.
Also note: carriers will not necessarily allow passengers to check bags through to the final destination with multiple tickets. Thus passengers will only check the bag to the destination on the first ticket(s). The passenger must collect the baggage at baggage claim for their first ticketed destination and then recheck their baggage with the down-line carrier for the next flight. Various baggage restrictions may also apply subject to carrier guidelines.
Atlantis Tours is not responsible for:
Any costs/fees relating to airline delays, rescheduling, or cancellation. If you miss your departure flight, it is your responsibility to work with the airline on which you are ticketed to reach your destination.
Any additional expenses incurred before joining the tour package will not provide any refund for services or portions of missed trips due to canceled, rescheduled, or delayed flights.
Choice of seats on airlines are usually chargeable and not included in a package trip.
Size and weight limitations for carry-on and checked baggage on international, inter-European flights. Domestic flights vary from airline to airline and are subject to change, so please check with the applicable carrier before departure. Due to limited motor coach capacity on the land portion, we allow only 1 suitcase and 1 carry-on per person. Luggage handling at hotels for 1 suitcase is provided. Airport porter is not included as security regulations require that travelers handle and be responsible for their luggage. No responsibility is accepted for loss of or damage to baggage or any traveler’s belongings. Baggage insurance is recommended.
Special requests for hotel rooms and flight seating must be given upon booking. However, are these requests outside of our control and therefore cannot be guaranteed. The hotel management assigns all rooms upon arrival. Please note that throughout Europe, it is standard policy that hotel rooms are not available for check-in before 2:00 PM.
Smoking is not permitted on airplanes or motor coaches.
