PASSPORT & VISA REQUIREMENTS

Your passport and visas are not our responsibility and we are not liable for any loss or expenses caused by your failure to comply with these requirements. Flight reservations cannot be made without passenger names. You must, at the time of booking, advise the correct names of all passengers including students and escorts. It is vital that these conform exactly to the name in each passenger’s passport. Name changes after tickets have been issued will result in the issue of new tickets and vouchers and incur amendment charges and may require a higher airfare to be paid. G.E.T. Educational Tours can accept no responsibility for any additional charges, or inability to travel as a result of incorrect notification of passenger names. It is the responsibility of the traveller to ensure that their passport and visa validity is in line with the requirements of the country or countries they are travelling to.

DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS

A non refundable deposit of $300 per student for tours to Asia and the Pacific and $1,000 per student for tours to Europe and the United States is payable to confirm your reservation. Full payment is required a minimum of 65 days prior departure. Airfare only bookings require a non refundable deposit of $250 per student to Asia and the Pacific and $500 to Europe and USA. Bookings may be automatically cancelled if payment is not received.

CHANGES & AMENDMENTS

If you change your booking 120 days prior to departure we will charge a $150 amendment fee for each change plus any additional pre-payable taxes, levies or charges. Requests for an individual to travel outside the group’s designated dates is subject to availability and will incur an additional charge of $150 per person plus any charges that our suppliers may pass on to G.E.T.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

A cancellation fee equal to the deposit and any airfares paid will apply final payment due date. Bookings cancelled inside this final payment due date will be charged a fee equal to 100% of the land content price and any airline cancellation fees.

Please note: Airlines, ground handling companies, hotels, hostels, homestay accommodation operators, restaurants and tour operators may impose additional cancellation fees inside final payment due date.

We will not refund any unused part of your itinerary including accommodation, transfers, tours, and airfares. Airline refunds following cancellation will be made when the airline completes the refund transaction (note, this may be in excess of 60 days). The price of your tour is not guaranteed until full payment has been received.
