PASSPORTS AND VISAS:
Passengers are responsible for ensuring that they have the proper travel documents and MUST CHECK with the respective consulate(s) or visa agency to determine whether any visas or passports are required. Passports are required to be valid for at least 6 months after the date of travel. Some countries require a full blank “VISA” page in the passport for stamping purposes. Any information provided on travel description pertains to US citizens only. Non-US citizens should check with the respective consulate of the country(s) to be visited for current entry requirements. We strongly suggest all passengers that are making reservations for a cruise to have a valid passport in their possession.
Missing a vacation is bad enough. Losing the money you paid for your vacation is even worse. Travel insurance is strongly recommended. JEK Travels LLC will send, via email, a quote for travel insurance within 72 hours of you making your reservation. It may be purchased, which may cover cancellation for covered reasons as outlined in the insurance policy. Insurance policies vary with differing exclusions (such as pre-existing conditions, work related issues, supplier bankruptcy, change of mind, etc.). While you are not obligated to purchase travel insurance it is highly recommend. Some International countries require the traveler to have travel insurance prior to traveling. JEK Travels LLC will not be responsible for you getting denied entry into a country for not fulfilling this requirement.
Guests are required to make reservations in the full name that is listed on his/her government document they will use for travel. If you need to make any changes to a name after travel documents have been issued, clients will be responsible for all name change fees, if applicable. Photo identification is required for all travel. It is the responsibility of each Customer to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. When traveling domestically 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.

The name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records. JEK Travels LLC strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger, if their passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Non-United States 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; please see https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/268/kw/travel for forms.

Parental or legal guardian consent must be provided to the supervising adult/Group Leader. You acknowledge any failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing Customer to miss flight(s), and subsequent scheduled travel bookings on cruises and tours. Check each supplier’s website to ensure you and all members in your travel group or party obtain and carry travel documentation required.
ENTRY AND EXIT REQUIREMENTS:
Each foreign country holds different views of past criminal offenses, whether within or outside of their boundaries. If you have a current or past offense, and you are unsure how the country you are traveling to (or through) views that offense, please contact that country directly for entry and exit requirements. (Details can be found at http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_4965.html.) JEK Travels LLC respects the privacy of all clients, and feel it is an invasion of privacy for any member of our staff to make such an inquiry.
TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN:
Children under 18 years of age not traveling with both parents or legal guardian(s) may need to present a notarized letter from the absent parent/guardian granting permission to travel outside the United States and provide emergency medical care if necessary. This would apply to grandparents, only one parent traveling, or a divorced parent traveling. Travelers should confer with their attorney to get the correct paperwork in order, or you can find information here: https://www.dhs.gov/how-do-i/travel-overseas.

AIRLINE CONFIRMATION, CHECK-IN, SEAT ASSIGNMENTS, MISSED FLIGHTS:
JEK Travels LLC is not responsible for the services and policies imposed by the airlines. Airline schedules and flights are subject to change without notice.
JEK Travels LLC is not responsible for penalties incurred for tickets, international or domestic, not issued by JEK Travels LLC due to schedule and/or flight changes. Airline reservations completed online are subject to review and, should JEK Travels LLC deem it necessary, may be rebooked to match minimum connecting time requirements and/or tour package itineraries, in which case you will be notified immediately. Airlines reserve the right to demand immediate issuance of tickets whenever they determine that specific flights are heavily booked even when normal ticketing rules do not require tickets to be issued until a later date.
In this instance, JEK Travels LLC will require immediate and full payment of the airfare. This situation overrides invoice terms and conditions and payment due dates. If full payment is not received, seats will be cancelled by the airline and may not be available to be rebooked on the same flights or at the same airfare. Any replacement air arrangements and airfare will be the sole responsibility of the passenger.
JEK Travels LLC will do its best to use major carriers for their flights. There may be times when discount carriers are used. Travelers will be notified beforehand if this is the case.
Once full payment is received, airline tickets will be issued and are fully non-refundable. Should airline tickets require issuance earlier than the final payment due date, client may be required to pay a larger non-refundable deposit and/or complete full payment.
It is important that you confirm your flights with the airline prior to departure: 24 hours in advance for domestic flights, and 72 hours in advance for international flights. Failure to confirm international flights or failure to use any portion of an airline reservation may result in automatic cancellation by the airline for all continuing and return flights.
Familiarize yourself with your airline’s policies and requirements before booking. Unless stated otherwise by the airlines, it is important to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure for domestic flights and 3 hours prior to departure for international flights view travel documents for verification. Late arrival at the airport can result in loss of assigned seats or denial of boarding.
Denial of boarding is not eligible for refund or travel insurance reimbursement. Airfare rebooking is subject to airline penalties, rebooking fees, plus any cost difference of the new flight. Seat assignments are subject to change by the airline without notice.
The airlines bears sole authority of assigning seats on group flights. JEK Travels LLC airline contracts are for economy class seats only. If you require another class of service, you may consider purchasing your own flights and purchasing your land only package from JEK Travels LLC.
AIRLINE NAME CHANGE:
Any name change including minor spelling corrections may require airline reservations to be canceled and rebooked. Reservations are subject to current availability and pricing at the time of rebooking. Once airline tickets are issued, subsequent name corrections will be subject to an airline rebooking fee which may be as much as the full value of the airline ticket plus a $50 or more revision fee per change. JEK Travels LLC will not be held responsible for the denial of services by a carrier due to any name discrepancy.
AIRLINE FUEL SURCHARGE:
If you purchased airfare, airline taxes and fuel surcharges are included. Prior to completion of full payment there is a potential for a price increase due to increases in government-levied taxes and fees and/or fuel surcharges. To avoid potential increases, you may choose to accelerate your final payment in order that your tickets may be issued. Once issued, airline tickets are no longer subject to potential increases but are fully non-refundable. Certain overseas domestic flights are subject to air taxes which can only be paid locally; in these cases, the specific flights and amounts of those taxes are indicated in our package presentation and pre-departure documentation.
HOTEL / RESORT ACCOMMODATIONS:
All rooms requested are standard twin-bedded (two single beds) rooms with private facilities, unless you have specifically requested a king/double size bed. Please understand although we will make a bed type request on your behalf, bed types are subject to availability. Room selection in all cases is strictly at the discretion of the hotel’s management on a run-of-house basis. Triple and quad occupancy rooms consist of two beds for cruises, where triple and quad rooms will consist a twin bed for each person. Some single rooms are smaller than a standard room size. The number of persons accommodated does not dictate the room size. In the event you have a roommate and they cancel for any reason or plans change, you will be responsible for any additional charges that may come up as a result of moving to a single occupancy room. Although available at most 4 and 5 star hotels, use of air-conditioning abroad differs greatly from the United States. Many European hotels were built before central air-conditioning was introduced. Air-conditioning is often shut down at night and from the end until the start of the summer months. All hotel rates are based on JEK Travels LLC agreements with its suppliers and are not negotiable. Hotel check-in time is generally not before 3:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon. Please be sure that adequate arrangements for accommodations have been taken into consideration when a late-night flight is being used. If a day room is included in the itinerary, check-out will normally be 6:00 p.m. We reserve the right to make substitutions with hotels of equal standard. There will be no refunds for any difference in the cost of those accommodations.

Transfers are provided as indicated for each tour by car, minibus, or motor coach provided airfare is purchased from JEK Travels LLC. If you purchase a land-only tour, or if you deviate from the arrival and/or departure dates as stated in the itinerary, you will have the responsibility to purchase your own transfer to the hotel. Your arrival transfer is guaranteed for up to one hour from your scheduled arrival time in order to compensate for minor delays.
JEK Travels LLC or the transfer company will not be responsible for flight delays, for any reason, beyond one hour from your originally scheduled arrival time. In case of a delay, whether due to flight delay, immigration and customs, or time spent reporting baggage damage or loss, it will be your responsibility to make other transfer arrangements such as a taxi. Transfer costs are not refundable and any additional expenses will be your responsibility.
The cost of a transfer is more expensive than hiring a taxi, as a JEK Travels LLC transfer necessarily includes round trip service.
JEK Travels LLC transfer drivers, while not employees of JEK Travels LLC, are reliable. They provide you with a full welcome service, transfer you to the correct location and are prepared to answer your questions along your ride. Passengers comfortable hiring a taxi on their own and do not require assistance will save money.
Tours will be operated by motor-vehicle, its size dictated by the number of participants. JEK Travels LLC tours have been designed to accommodate individuals as well as groups. Times listed in itineraries are approximate and meant only as guidelines. Some itineraries may have early morning start times for sightseeing in order to complete the touring during daylight hours or avoid afternoon heat in tropical and desert climates. It is your responsibility to arrive on time for all scheduled flights, cruises, and package components. Arriving late may be considered a “no-show”, in which case you will not be eligible for refund for the unused service(s). We cannot guarantee the number of passengers who will be on any given tour. You may find that you are traveling with a sizeable group or only with your own companions. Services, however, will remain constant no matter the number of tour participants.
Persons requiring any assistance or who have any form of disability should travel with someone to assist them. On dates including, but not limited to religious holidays and national celebrations, some monuments and sites may be closed. On these occasions, touring itineraries may be amended to reflect these closures. Occasionally, during holidays and certain periods, and/or due to unforeseen circumstances including weather conditions there may be last-minute changes, sometimes after arrival, in affecting the sequence of the tour, locations visited and/or hotels. Therefore, we reserve the right to adjust the sequence and/or substitute any hotels with others of similar category. In such cases there will be no cost adjustment. National monuments and tourist sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure the monument’s view.
No tour will be canceled due to renovations, however JEK Travels LLC will decide based on the conditions whether to amend an itinerary. JEK Travels LLC itineraries may contain suggestions for activities for your leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute an endorsement of any specific service provider and the decision to participate in any such activities should be made independently and with due consideration.
