Credit Card Bookings. While we and our suppliers do accept major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover, travelers must provide to us a click or signed authorization for every transaction for your trip. Your authorization is an agreement for us to charge your card and an acknowledgment and agreement to these terms and conditions including the cancellation terms. As such you agree not to make any improper chargebacks.
In certain cases, you have the ability to dispute charges with credit card companies ("chargebacks"). Before initiating a chargeback, we ask you first to call us to discuss any questions or concerns about our charges. We will work with you in attempting to resolve your concerns.

Prices include a cost for local taxes that are estimated at the date of publication. At the time of booking confirmation, we will provide you with an invoice reflecting the current price.
We reserve the right to add a supplement to your travel prices should our costs of supplying your travel increase, until we receive your final payment. Any increase to your travel price will be as the result of changes in our costs of supplying your travel resulting from changes by our suppliers, dues, or taxes payable locally, currency fluctuations and government action. If our costs to supply your travel increases, we reserve the right to increase the price of your travel and will forward a new Invoice reflecting any changes made. After final payment your price is locked in.
We reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in advertised prices at any time before your travel is confirmed. We will advise you of any errors of which we are aware and of the then applicable price at the time of booking.
What’s Included in Your Tour
Accommodations are provided as detailed in your itinerary. Special requests such as single rooms, lower floors, connecting rooms, and smoking preference, must be made at the time of booking. While we will make reasonable efforts to communicate your requests to the supplier, such requests are not guaranteed and are at the discretion of the supplier. There may be additional charges for such requests which will be solely the expense of the guest making the request.
Travelers should be aware that hotel room sizes, standards, and facilities can vary regionally and are often different from standards in the United States. This can include differences in bed sizes and room sizes, bathroom amenities, amenities such as air-conditioning, and compliance with other standards such as ADA and wheelchair accessibility. One of the joys of international travel is experiencing different cultures and different ways of life so we hope that you will accept these differences with grace and a sense of adventure.
Group Getaways reserves the right, if necessary, to substitute other similar hotels for hotels listed on your itinerary. Such substitutions may be made at any time and without prior notice. We cannot be held responsible for hotel over-bookings; should such occur, we will undertake to find similar accommodations in the same area. Such substitutions are at Group Getaways’ sole discretion and no refunds will be offered for changes in accommodations.
While we exercise due diligence in the selection of our partners, hotel and other accommodation profiles are based on information provided to us by the supplier. This includes images and descriptions of the properties and rooms. Additionally, travelers should be aware that star ratings or similar systems are based on country classifications and therefore can differ. While Group Getaways does its best to maintain current and accurate information regarding these suppliers, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in supplier descriptions, amenities, or images.
Group Getaways is pleased to offer transfers in accordance with your itinerary. You must be on time for all transfers. There will be no refund for missed or unused transfers. You must provide us your flight information no less than 21 days prior to departure to ensure transfers will be available. If at any time your flight plans change, you must notify us immediately. Failure to do so may result in missing these services and no refund shall be due for missed arrival transfers resulting from missing or outdated flight information.
Meals are as indicated in the itineraries. Special diets should be requested at the time of booking; however, it may not be possible for special diets to be catered to in some of the destinations we feature. For safety and liability reasons, Group Getaways and its representatives cannot be responsible for directly accommodating any food allergies, or dietary requirements and restrictions, and is not responsible for any issues or problems associated with the same. We will advise the hotels of your request, but we cannot guarantee their availability.
Sightseeing tours and activities are included as provided in the individual itineraries. These tours and activities are designed to accommodate individuals as well as groups. As a courtesy to others in the tour and/or activity, it is mandatory that you be on time for all scheduled experiences. Tours and activities will begin on-time and failure to arrive will be considered a no-show for which no refunds will be available. It is essential that you keep in mind that tour and activity times are set to accommodate climate, crowd size and best viewing options for our groups. At times, early morning departure times may help create a better experience. Therefore, late arrivals cannot be accommodated.
Changes to Itineraries
Group Getaways 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. Group Getaways 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 canceled due to renovations, although Group Getaways 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 guest.
If we suggest alternate activities in place of a planned stop or in case of leisure time, 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.
What’s Not Included

Groups are considered 10 rooms or more with a minimum stay of 3 or more nights per room. Rooms stays of 2 or less nights do not count towards group amenities or group rates. All rooms must be booked through Groups Getaways, in order to count towards group amenities. Group amenities are provided by the hotel and subject to change without notice. A group cannot drop below a minimum of 10 rooms and still be considered a group, regardless of hotel reduction policy. If the group falls below the minimum traveler, you are responsible for any increased cost.
Cancellation of travel must be made in writing and is effective from the date we receive the written notification. We incur costs with the suppliers of your tour well in advance of your tour date. All suppliers have their own cancellation policies, which apply to your booking. Upon receipt of your cancellation request we will contact the suppliers for any applicable refunds subject to the supplier’s terms and conditions. If you are entitled to a refund, please note that the supplier is responsible for this refund, not <travel advisor>. Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of refund.

We may at our sole discretion offer travel vouchers or refunds in accordance with the cancellation schedule above. Guest is responsible for any additional costs for air tickets or other travel arrangements not made by us.
If between planning time and/or during actual travel, circumstances require changes, Group Getaways, and its suppliers, reserve the right to cancel or vary any itinerary and substitute components of any tour, including but not limited to hotels and accommodations of comparable quality, if air schedule or surface transportation charges, security matters, and/or other events make such alterations necessary. Suppliers may substitute transportation equipment depending on any variety of factors, including the volume of passengers on the tour. Sightseeing Tours may be altered as described above. Group Getaways cannot be held responsible for any closures, necessary itinerary changes, or curtails for any reason. These changes will not be considered material changes and will not be considered cause for cancellation by the traveler. Normal cancellation penalties still apply to the tour that has been changed.
MUTUAL TERMINATION. Groups Getaways reserves the right to terminate this contract at its sole discretion, without cause, upon providing written notice to the client.

DESTINATIONS AND DOCUMENTATION Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Group Getaways urges Travelers to remain informed on a daily basis as to current news, as well as to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at http://www.state.gov and http://www.cdc.gov. In addition, you should consult with government websites to ensure that you are in compliance with all requirements for admittance into that country, including COVID- 19 requirements, as well as understanding local laws that govern travel within a country, such as medical tests and tracking. It is your responsibility to be aware of any and all requirements for admittance to a country or state, including Covid-19 requirements. Should you choose to travel to a country that has been issued a travel warning or advisory, Group Getaways will not be liable for damages or losses that result from travel to such destinations.
It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), inoculations, and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. For up-to-date requirements, US citizens should visit www.travel.state.gov. When traveling domestically within the USA 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, found here: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. Group Getaways strongly recommends that you consider that certain countries will not admit a passenger if their passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Non-USA citizens may require additional documentation. Children and infants also require all such travel documents. Minors traveling with one parent, and/or without both parents, may be stopped and not admitted, unless authenticated and verified consent forms are provided to the authorities.

Inoculation requirements can be found on the Center for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/.
