To avoid cancellation fees, we recommend optional travel protection.
Any changes you make regarding your reservation are subject to a per person change fee plus any applicable cancellation charges or increases in the trip package price.
5. TRAVEL PROTECTION
MAVtravel strongly recommends that travelers purchase a travel protection plan. Travel protection safeguards your travel investment, your belongings, and most importantly, you. Your travel protection plan should cover at a minimum, cancellation, curtailment, medical, emergency travel and personal accidents, and damage or loss to personal belongings. Travel protection with Cancel for Any Reason coverage is available and MAVtravel recommends you research this coverage prior to purchasing travel protection.
MAVtravel is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel protection plans. MAVtravel cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured’s existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection, call the travel protection company directly.
Declining travel protection plan coverage could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. You also acknowledge that without this coverage, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs or expenses incurred. If a traveler chooses to travel without adequate travel protection, MAVtravel will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, which would have been covered by adequate travel protection.
MAVtravel continually strives to improve travel itineraries. If such improvements can be made, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute accommodations. MAVtravel strives to operate trips as advertised, but if unforeseen circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we will make every effort to substitute accommodations, sightseeing or other inclusions with options of a similar standard and location whenever possible.
7. CANCELLATION BY MAVtravel
MAVtravel reserves the right to cancel any trip at its sole discretion. In the unlikely event a trip is canceled by MAVtravel and MAVtravel is unable to reschedule, all funds collected from any traveler will be refunded. Money is refunded to the original payer. MAVtravel shall not be responsible for any refund and will pay no damages in the event of cancellation due to Force Majeure.
8. FORCE MAJEURE
MAVtravel will not be in breach of these terms and conditions or otherwise be liable to you, for any failure or delay in performing an obligation under this Agreement that is due to any of the following causes, to the extent beyond its reasonable control: acts of God, accident, riots, war, terrorist act, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, civil commotion, breakdown of communication facilities, including web host and internet service provider, breakdown or malfunction of equipment, destruction of or serious damage to facilities, natural catastrophes including, but not limited to extreme weather events, floods and volcanic eruptions, governmental acts or omissions, changes in laws or regulations, national strikes, fire, explosion, generalized lack of availability of raw materials or energy, and any other unforeseen circumstance which is beyond the control of MAVtravel. THE PURCHASE OF TRAVEL INSURANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ON ALL TRIPS.
In addition, each of MAVtravel’s Suppliers have terms and conditions which include Force Majeure provisions. In the event that a Force Majeure event occurs, those Suppliers may be entitled to, and may in their sole and absolute discretion, vary, postpone or cancel any itinerary or arrangement in relation to the trip. Payment of any refund to you as a result of the non-performance of any obligations hereunder shall remain in the sole and absolute discretion of the Supplier, pursuant to their policies, although MAVtravel shall use its reasonable efforts to secure reimbursement for you where possible.
9. TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING TSA AND DHS ACCEPTABLE IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
It is the responsibility of each Traveler to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. When traveling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry acceptable identification in order to board a flight. Acceptable identification can be found at http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids; examples are DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, Passport, a foreign government passport. The name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records. You acknowledge any failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing Traveler to miss flight(s), and subsequent scheduled travel bookings on cruises and tours.
MAVtravel strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger if their passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Non-United States citizens may require additional documentation. Traveler is responsible to make MAVtravel aware when traveling on a passport from a country other than the United States of America. MAVtravel neither controls nor warrants the issuance of visas or approval of visa waivers related to your travel. Should a visa not be issued, MAVtravel is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. Please note that rules of each country regarding entry and exit change on a daily basis.
Children and infants also require travel documents. Minors traveling with one parent, and/or without both parents, may be stopped and not admitted, unless authenticated and verified consent forms are provided to the authorities; please see https://help.cbp.gov/s/article/Article-3643for additional information. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency requires that for groups of children under age 19 arriving to the United States by land or sea from contiguous territory and traveling with a school group, religious group, social or cultural organization, or sports team, may also present an original or copy of his or her birth certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or a Naturalization Certificate. Parental or legal guardian consent must be provided to the supervising adult/Group Leader in writing.
10. INDIVIDUAL ENTRY AND EXIT REQUIREMENTS
Each country holds different views of past criminal offenses, whether within or outside of their boundaries. If you have a current or prior criminal offense, contact that country directly for entry and exit requirements. You can visit the US State Department Website for further information about these requirements. See, https://travel.state.gov/content/travel.html. We do not inquire about an individual’s criminal record in the interest of respecting our Clients’ privacy. For example, if traveling to or through Canada, individuals with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) record should review current entry requirements. See: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/inadmissibility/index.asp.
11. HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
Federal law prohibits passengers from bringing hazardous materials on the aircraft.
(1) Federal law forbids the carriage of hazardous materials aboard aircraft in the passenger’s luggage or on the passenger’s person. A violation can result in five years’ imprisonment and penalties of $250,000 or more (49 U.S.C. 5124). Hazardous materials include explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives and radio- active materials. Examples: Paints, lighter fluid, fireworks, tear gases, oxygen bottles, and radiopharmaceuticals.
(2) There are special exceptions for small quantities (up to 70 ounces total) of medicinal and toilet articles carried in the passenger’s luggage and certain smoking materials carried on the passenger’s person. For further information, each passenger should contact the relevant airline representative(s) on their itinerary. Restrictions on hazardous materials are listed http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/prohibited-items.
12. INSECTICIDE NOTICE
We recommend that you refer to the DOT list of airports in countries that require airlines to treat the passenger cabin with insecticides prior to the flight or while on the aircraft. This list is on the DOT’s website and is updated from time to time: http://www.dot.gov/office-policy/aviation-policy/aircraft-disinsection-requirements.
You must have the proper immunizations and health screenings and required documentation of such immunizations and screenings before travel. MAVtravel shall not assume responsibility for the accuracy of health, vaccination, or documentation prior to departure or upon landing at the final destination. In some cases, required inoculations must be recorded by Travelers’s health practitioner on a valid vaccination certificate, which the Traveler must carry for proof of inoculation. If you are concerned about taking any medications or receiving certain inoculations, check with your health practitioner BEFORE booking. Check the State Department Web site http://travel.state.gov, for relevant information relating to travel to specific destinations, and the Center for Disease Control http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/ relating to health issues related to travel.
14. AIR TRAVEL, SCHEDULE RECONFIRMATION, CHECK-IN
MAVtravel shall not assume any responsibility for any air schedule changes. In rare instances, upon departure from a country, certain departure taxes must be paid in cash only, and may vary in price.

Some group tours are based on minimum numbers of passengers traveling; if the number of passengers falls below the minimum required, a surcharge may be imposed, or the tour may be canceled. Any cancelations of a tour or package for reason of failing to meet the minimum traveler requirement will be governed by the tour operator’s cancelation policy.
If you decide to change any portion of your confirmed arrangements prior to departure or during your trip, we will attempt to assist you. Certain bookings may not be able to be changed. All requests for changes to a booking must be made in writing to MAVtravel.
The Supplier may determine that alterations in itinerary are necessary for any number of reasons, including but not limited to severe weather. Any alterations to an itinerary are at the sole discretion of the Supplier, and MAVtravel bears no responsibility for any changes.
