Liability, Schedule Changes & Universal Cancellation Statement

Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellation fees apply to the entire booking, including tour fare, air add-ons, ground transfers, pre- and post- hotel and tour packages. If any components are canceled, you will be responsible for any cancellation fees imposed by the airlines, other transportation carriers, other tour and ground operators, and other hotel properties. You are not entitled to any refund, payment, compensation, or credit except as otherwise provided in this Section. Any refunds will be made directly to the method of payment you used at the time of booking or your travel agent and you must receive your refund directly from these sources. Guests who cancel in writing as set forth below within the dates shown below for any reason, including medical or family reasons, are subject to the following per-person cancellation fees, as applicable.

You hereby agree that losses sustained by Prime Tours in the event of your cancellation would be very difficult or impossible to quantify and that the fees set forth in the below cancellation schedule represent a fair and reasonable assessment as liquidated damages. Since a cancellation likely means a diminished opportunity to sell the same space on other cruises or trips, the cancellation fees below apply regardless of a name change or stateroom resale.

All requests for cancellation must be received in writing. Cancellations cannot be made online. Cancellations received 180 days or more prior to departure, or as stated in your trip flyer, are refundable less an administrative fee of a minimum US $50 per person, or as stated in your trip flyer. If cancellation occurs less than 120 days prior to departure, all payments are forfeited, unless otherwise stated in your trip flyer. If full payment has not yet been received, the full penalty will still apply and any unpaid balance is due immediately. To protect your investment, Prime Tours highly recommends that you obtain adequate trip cancellation insurance.

Itinerary Changes

Tours are usually planned months or even a year or more in advance. Between planning time and operation, we constantly strive to improve each itinerary and add to your convenience and enjoyment. However, should improvements be made and/or unforeseen conditions beyond our control deem change necessary; we reserve the right to do so.
