BLUE ZARIA TRAVEL TERMS OF AGREEMENT

Prices •  Prices are per person based on shared twin room occupancy. All prices are based on current exchange rates and until final payment are subject to change without notice.

Prices do not include items of a personal nature such as laundry, wines, water, beverages, food or passport and visa fees, insurance, and foreign port taxes unless specifically indicated in the package inclusions. Prices are correct at time of publication; however, as airfares continually fluctuate and classes of service may have limited capacity, journey package prices and availability will change accordingly. In case of human or computer error, Blue Zaria reserves the right to re-invoice for the correct price or service. A full refund will be made to passengers who choose not to pay an increase, provided Blue Zaria receives a written cancellation within five days of the price increase notification.

    TRAVELERS WITH DISABILITIES:

    In order to fully enjoy your Blue Zaria journey, we recommend that you select a trip that is suitable to your physical capabilities. Journey participants who require any form of assistance are required to notify Blue Zaria in writing prior to reservation for review and our agreement. Additionally the journey participant, must be accompanied by an individual responsible for providing those services. Journey managers, guides, drivers or other journey, hotel, ship personnel are not able to provide such assistance.  journeys are fast-paced, often requiring lengthy walks over uneven terrain. Clients with special needs may be better served independently. In order to participate in journeys, passengers must be able to understand and follow instructions given by the Journey Director at all times. Passengers may not interfere actively or passively with the successful operation of the journey, including but not limited to emergency situations.

     

    Wheelchairs& Walkers:

    International Journeys: Hotels and cruises outside of the United States are not required to comply with ADA requirements and therefore may not have ramps, wide entryways or elevators to accommodate disabled passengers or devices such as wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters. Due to physical constraints and space limitations, wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters may not be taken aboard motor coaches.

     

    USA Journeys: Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), Blue Zaria seeks to accommodate disabled travelers to the extent possible and consistent with the specific journey itinerary. Nevertheless, you may find that certain journey features may not be accessible to the extent that you require a wheelchair, scooter, or other special equipment to participate. We cannot provide individual assistance to travelers with wheelchairs or other mobility devices. We regret that some itineraries cannot accommodate wheelchairs or motorized scooters. Passengers are required to advise Blue Zaria of their accessibility requirements prior to booking in order for Blue Zaria to determine if reasonable accommodations are available. Blue Zaria and its agents will endeavor to accommodate special access needs, however may not be held responsible in the event that we are unable to do so.

    Service Animals: Service animals cannot be accommodated on international journeys. Passengers on USA journeys who require a service dog because of a disability should check with Blue Zaria prior to booking a journey.

    Blue Zaria reserves the right to remove any person from a journey who has not provided the required notification, has not received written confirmation from Blue Zaria, or does not comply with these regulations. All related expenses, including those to return home, will be borne by the passenger.

     

    AIRLINES: Airline schedules and flights are subject to change without notice. Blue Zaria is not responsible for penalties incurred for tickets, international or domestic, not issued by Blue Zaria due to schedule and/or flight changes. Airline reservations completed online are subject to review and, should Blue Zaria deem it necessary, may be rebooked to match minimum connecting time requirements and/or journey 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, Blue Zaria will require immediate and full payment of the airfare as itemized on the invoice. 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.

     Airline Tickets: Payments are applied to Blue Zaria Journey airline tickets and are fully non-refundable. If airline tickets are issued earlier than the final payment due date, you may be required to pay a larger non-refundable deposit and/or complete full payment.

     Airline Seat Assignments: As a courtesy service, airline seat assignments are requested on your behalf and are displayed in order of Passenger #1, #2 and so on. Assignments reflect the best available seats at the time of booking. Some airlines and/or fare types do not allow for pre-seating and require this be done at airport check-in only; in this case, the display shows "N/A". Seats are subject to change by your airline(s) including, for example, when there is a schedule change or equipment change after your initial booking; this may cause seat assignments to be changed or even cancelled. In the event that you change seat assignments directly with your airline, changes will not be reflected on this display. At the time that Blue Zaria documents are issued, the currently assigned seats will be listed if available and based on the assignments stored in your airline reservation at that time. Should you have questions regarding your assignments, please email to info@bluezaria.com.

     Airline Frequent Flier Programs: Passengers are responsible to contact their airline directly regarding mileage eligibility and accrual. Airline frequent flier programs determine whether to award miles in part or total based on their own rules which are updated frequently. Some discounted or promotional airfares as well as some code-share flights are not eligible for mileage accrual. Not all published airfares are eligible for mileage. Airline schedule changes may result in flights which were originally eligible for mileage accrual no longer being eligible. We highly recommend passengers to provide their frequent flier account information whenever checking in online and/or at the airport check-in desk. After travel has commenced, it is often not possible to apply for frequent mileage credit. Passengers are also responsible to determine whether previously earned mileage may be applied to flights to secure upgrades.

    Contact Information: Pursuant to TSA Secure Flight requirements, passengers are responsible to provide Blue Zaria with their name as it appears on their passport (or other government-issued I.D. when traveling), date of birth, gender, address, phone number, email and fax data for all passengers. Passengers must ensure that names are correctly listed on their invoice. Blue Zaria will not be responsible for passengers who do not receive an invoice or documents or are denied boarding due to inaccurate information.

     Airline Name Changes: 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 revision fee per change. Blue Zaria will not be held responsible for the denial of services by a carrier due to any name discrepancy. Name changes must be advised in writing and forwarded to the attention of Customer Service, service@bluezaria.com.

     Airline Taxes & Fuel Surcharges: 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(s) 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.

     

    Schedule Changes: In the event of an airline schedule change, Blue Zaria will make every effort to inform passengers of the schedule change and new flight schedule prior to departure. Blue Zaria is not responsible for schedule changes including, when applicable, changes in routing and/or the number of stops in the itinerary. Blue Zaria is unable to provide compensation for schedule changes, seat assignment modifications, or cancellations implemented by an airline. In the event of any change in flight itinerary made directly between passengers and their airline, it is the passengers' responsibility to advise Blue Zaria of amended flight details in writing to service@bluezaria.com. Blue Zaria cannot be held responsible for land services, including arrival and/or departure transfers, if flights are changed without its knowledge.

     

    Hotel Accommodations: All rooms are standard twin-bedded (two single beds) rooms with private facilities, unless you have specifically requested and paid for an upgraded room category. Special requests such as bed types, smoking preference and connecting rooms are subject to availability.

    Room selection in all cases, unless otherwise reserved, is strictly at the discretion of the hotel's management on a run-of-house basis. Triple rooms consist of standard twin beds or one double bed plus a sofa/folding bed or cot for third person except in the U.S. and Canada, where triple rooms often consist of two double/queen beds for three persons; a fee may be charged by the hotel for the addition of a cot/rollaway. The number of persons accommodated does not dictate the room size. 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 existed. 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 Blue Zaria's agreements with its suppliers and are not negotiable. Hotel check-in time is generally not before 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon. 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.

     Hotel & Cruise Profiles: Blue Zaria hotel profiles are based upon information provided to Blue Zaria by our hotel partners and their representatives, including images and descriptions of individual properties. Star-ratings may differ from country to country.  Blue Zaria does its best to maintain current information, however is not responsible for any inaccuracies, changes in description details or amenities, or images provided by third parties.

    Meals: As specified in each itinerary. Meals are based on the hotel's or restaurant's buffet or set menu. In general, beverages are not included, unless specifically stated. Although Blue Zaria cannot make guarantees, every effort will be made to honor special dietary requests submitted in writing at least 72 hours prior to departure to service@bluezaria.com.

    Transfers: Transfers are provided as indicated for each journey by car, minibus, or motor coach provided airfare is purchased from Blue Zaria. If you purchase a land-only journey, or if you deviate from the arrival and/or departure dates as stated in the itinerary, you will have the option to add transfer services to your reservation. Your arrival transfer is guaranteed for up to one hour from your scheduled arrival time in order to compensate for minor delays. Blue Zaria 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 Blue Zaria transfer necessarily includes round trip service, or 'deadleg', meaning that our driver must come to the airport, hotel or pier only to pick you up and necessarily loses a one-way fare. Often the places of call (airports, seaports, hotels) demand entrance and parking fees, where drivers may have to wait for up to an hour. Blue Zaria transfer drivers, while not employees of Blue Zaria, are reliable and are contracted by Blue Zaria. They ensure that you receive a full welcome service, transfer you to the correct location and are prepared to answer your questions along your ride.

     Sightseeing& Itinerary: Will be operated by walking, public transportation and motor-vehicle, its size dictated by the number of participants. Blue Zaria journeys have been designed to accommodate individuals as well as groups. The number of participants may vary during the journey, 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 journeying 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 "noshow", 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 journey. Blue Zaria imposes mandatory coach seat rotation with no exception. Persons requiring any assistance or who have any form of disability should refer to section "Travelers With Disabilities". On dates including, but not limited to religious holidays and national celebrations, some monuments and sites may be closed. On these occasions, journeying 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 journey, 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 sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure the monument's view. No journey will be canceled due to renovations, however Blue Zaria will decide based on the conditions whether to amend an itinerary. Blue Zaria itineraries may contain suggestions for activities for your leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute a recommendation nor an endorsement of any specific service provider and the decision to participate in any such activities should be made independently and with due consideration. Blue Zaria is not responsible for any activities not expressly included in its programs.

     Rail: Once full payment is received, Blue Zaria will select train times, rail tickets will be issued and are fully non-refundable. Except where requested in writing prior to final payment, rail tickets will typically be reserved for departures between 9 am and 12 noon, subject to availability. Passengers traveling with a group may not request alternative train times. Once issued, rail tickets are valid for the dates and times specified. Some exchanges must be done locally at the station due to fare restrictions. Changes may be subject to local charges, fees, and fare increases. Once the booked train has departed, changes are no longer possible nor can amendments be completed on board the train. Blue Zaria does not control seat assignments which are entirely at the discretion of the rail companies. Once rail tickets are issued they are fully non-refundable and non-changeable.

     Optional Sightseeing Journeys: A limited selection of optional sightseeing journeys are available for purchase. Those associated with and guided programs will be available for purchase locally based upon availability. Some optional journeys require a minimum number of participants and may not be operated; in such cases, the journey company will attempt to notify you locally, and you will receive full refund upon your return home. Optional journeys may be conducted in more than one language. Optional journeys are subject to standard cancellation terms including being fully non-refundable once a trip has commenced.

    Non-Operation of Journey:  journey packages are based upon a minimum number of participants. Cancellation of any journey for lack of participation will be advised at least 30 days prior to the journey's departure, and all money will be refunded. Blue Zaria will not be held responsible for any costs relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of airline tickets or visa fees. Voluntary cancellations due to political instability, acts of terrorism, government intervention or US State Department warning will be subject to the above fees, provided the program is deemed (by Blue Zaria) able to continue. Should Blue Zaria elect to cancel a departure for any of these reasons, every effort will be made to obtain refunds from suppliers, however no guarantees can be provided on their behalf.

    Group Harmony: To ensure the desired group synergy, Blue Zaria reserves the right to accept, reject or expel any individual who is deemed disruptive or incompatible with the interests of the group. All expenses to do so will be borne by the passenger.

You may also check the Centers for Disease Control (www.cdc.gov) and/or the World Health Organization (http://www.who.int/en/) for their recommendations.

    Individuals with heart disease, chronic illness, physical handicap, advanced pregnancy, or mental illness should not participate in these rigorous travel programs. Any person who arrives to the destination ill with apparent fever or becomes ill during the journey, will be removed from the group and directed to a local medical facility for diagnosis. Only upon clearance by an accredited medical facility will that individual be allowed to resume group travel. All costs associated with medical treatment and related expenses such as additional hotel nights or transportation not included in the original itinerary, will necessarily be borne by the passenger. Please note that some countries may require aircraft cabin insecticide treatment for in-bound foreign flights. A list of such countries is available at:http://www.dot.gov/office-policy/aviation-policy/aircraft-disinsection-requirements.

    Luggage: All Blue Zaria journey buses allow one piece of luggage per person, plus carry-on bag. Additional baggage will be subject to a handling charge of $100 per piece. As Blue Zaria will not be responsible for loss or damage to luggage and personal belongings, you MUST report any loss or damage immediately at the time of the incident and obtain a written report from the local authority for submission to your insurance provider. If your luggage is lost or damaged by the airlines, a baggage claim form MUST be filed with the carrier before leaving the airport. We recommend that you use brightly colored luggage tags, straps or other identifiers to help you locate you luggage upon arrival or to describe it in the event that it is lost. Many airlines apply charges for checked bags. Blue Zaria is not responsible for checked bag fees, excess luggage or weight charges levied by an airline.
