Terms & Conditions
Pursuant to TSA Secure Flight Program requirements, travelers are required to make reservations in the name that is listed on the government-issued document he or she will use for travel. Travelers must ensure their names are correctly listed on any provided invoices or travel package documents. If you need to make any changes to a name after travel documents have been issued, you will be responsible for any applicable name change fees.
Prices are correct at the time of publication; however, as airfares, aircraft availability, hotel rates and room availability, tour prices and availability, ticket prices for events, vehicle type, and transfer availability continually fluctuate and add applicable surcharges, package prices and availability will change accordingly.
Payments & Cancellation Policy
A deposit is due at the time a reservation is made. All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. All reservations, except where specified, will require a deposit and will clearly specify the amount due as well as any monthly payment plan, if applicable. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received by the due date specified.
Once reservations have been made, cancellations will only be accepted in writing via email to Tourism@umuigbounite.com. This email should include your full name, date of travel, and invoice/account/package number.
Changes to an existing reservation, regardless of the reason for the change, will incur a charge per person, plus any additional supplier/vendor fees which will be determined at request of changes. This policy includes name changes, and/or removal/addition of any services.
By submitting a deposit or payment, you formally accept our Terms and Conditions as stated herein. Any violation on your part will constitute a breach and forfeiture of any and all payments.
All payments to us are non-refundable and non-transferable. This policy is because we have contractual agreements with hotels, airlines, and other vendors that will not allow us to obtain any refunds. This policy enables us to keep our package prices competitive and allows you to make monthly payments on your vacation.
Traveler is responsible for ensuring that he or she meets foreign entry requirements and that his or her travel documents, such as passports and visas, are valid and compliant. We urge customers to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by the relevant governments prior to booking travel to international destinations.
Trip Details and Documentation
Provided full payment is received no later than your Final Payment Due date, travel details and documentation will be sent via email and/or mail no later than 21 days prior to travel. If paper documents are requested when e-documents are available, documents will be delivered to you via USPS approximately 14-21 days prior, and a $40 convenience fee will apply. A physical address (no PO Box) is required.
Unless otherwise stated, no one under the age of 21 is allowed to attend UIUTourism trips. If children are allowed, all children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
We are not responsible for the services and policies imposed by the applicable airlines. Airline schedules and flights are subject to change without notice. We are not responsible for penalties incurred for tickets, international or domestic, not issued by us due to schedule and/or flight changes. Airline reservations completed online are subject to review and should we deem it necessary, may be rebooked to match minimum connecting time requirements and/or travel package itineraries, in which case customer 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, we will require immediate and full payment of the airfare. This situation overrides invoice terms and conditions, and payment due dates through any payment plans you may enter into with us. 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 traveler. We will do our best to use major carriers for these flights. There may be times when discount carriers are used. Travelers will be notified beforehand if this is the case.
Our hotel profiles are based upon information provided to us by hotel partners and their representatives, including images and descriptions of individual properties. We do our best to maintain current information, however we are not responsible for any inaccuracies, changes in description details or amenities, or images provided by third parties.
