Once you secure your reservation with your non-refundable security deposit and/or trip payment, we’ll calculate an evenly divided billing plan for you. Your initial deposit is due at the time of booking, and your future payments will be due according to the proposed schedule you see on your invoice. The payment schedule is flexible, except for the final payment. You may make payments as often and in the amounts that you so desire up until your final payment due date. At the time of the final payment due date, all outstanding funds are due to prevent cancellation of your vacation package (funds that were previously paid are not refundable if the final payment is late or not submitted). Payments are processed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays of each week; therefore, you will need to keep this in mind when submitting your payments (ex. if your final payment due date falls on a Thursday, you will want to make sure you submit your payment on the Wednesday prior).
Missing a vacation is bad enough. Losing the money you paid for your vacation is even worse. Not having medical coverage in the case of an injury is even worse. Trip insurance is therefore recommended, and you will receive a personalized quote via email from Key Occasions, LLC.
You can also purchase travel insurance on your own.
Traveling abroad require a passport valid for six months beyond travel dates. For this tour, your passport should not expire before December 16, 2024.
