By accessing, using or obtaining any content, products, or services through our offices or through our website, you, the purchaser and/or traveler (“Customer” and “passenger” and “you/your”) agree to be bound by these terms. If you do not accept all of these terms, then please do not use our services or our websites. These Terms and Conditions govern the relationship between Walks Around the World and you, the Customer. These terms restrict your rights and remedies and provide protection to Walks Around the World, including warranty disclaimers and liability exclusions. By using Walks Around the World services and our website you acknowledge and agree (a) this is a fair balance because our website is accessible by you conveniently and at no charge to access the website; and (b) if you do not agree or do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you can easily choose to not use this website or Walks Around the World services. So, if anything is in these Terms and Conditions, including warranty disclaimers and liability exclusions, that you disagree with or are not willing to be bound by, or if something is missing from these Terms and Conditions that you consider essential, then you must not use our website.
IF THERE IS ANY PART OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH, PLEASE DO NOT USE OUR WEBSITE OR WALKS AROUND THE WORLD’S SERVICES.

Travel documents, including TSA and DHS acceptable identification requirements
It is the responsibility of each Customer to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. When travelling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry at least two forms of acceptable identification in order to board a flight found in http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. Examples: DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, USA 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. Walks Around the World strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger, if his or her passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Non-United States citizens may require additional documentation. Children and infants also require all such 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/app/answers/detail/a_id/268/kw/travel. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency requires that for USA child groups under age 19 arriving by land or sea from a 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. 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 Customer to miss flight(s), and subsequent scheduled travel bookings on cruises and tours. Check each supplier’s website to ensure you and all members in your travel group or party obtain and carry travel documentation required.
Individual entry and exit requirements
Each foreign country holds different views of past criminal offenses, whether within or outside of their boundaries. If you have
a current or past offense, and you are unsure how the country you are traveling to (or through) views that offense, please
contact that country directly for entry and exit requirements. (See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages.html ) Walks Around the World neither controls nor warrants the issuance of visas related to applicable travel. It is Customer’s responsibility to verify that all the visas required for your trip
have been obtained, that the visas for each country are valid for the entry and exit dates of your visit, that your personal details are accurately reflected and that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond the completion date of your trip. Please note that even when a visa is issued, a traveler may be denied entry since each country’s local immigration officials make the final entry decision. Several factors including past criminal record may contribute to the decision of the local immigration official(s). Should a visa not be issued, Walks Around the World is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. We feel it is an invasion of privacy for any member of our staff to make such an inquiry. For example, if traveling to or through Canada, Americans with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) record should always check whether current rules exclude admission, and potential waivers. (See: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/inadmissibility/overcome-criminal-convictions.html )
Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Walks Around the World urges customers to remain informed on a daily basis as to current news, as well as to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at http://www.state.gov , http://www.tsa.gov , http://www.dot.gov , http://www.faa.gov , http://www.cdc.gov , and http://www.cbp.gov The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so that the Department of State can better assist you in an emergency. Registration is recommended and provided by going to https://step.state.gov/step/
BY OFFERING FOR SALE TRAVEL TO PARTICULAR DESTINATIONS, WALKS AROUND THE WORLD DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT TRAVEL TO SUCH POINTS IS ADVISABLE OR WITHOUT RISK, AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR COSTS, DAMAGES, OR LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVEL TO SUCH DESTINATIONS. CUSTOMER’S PARTICIPATION CONSITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH EVENTS AT CUSTOMER’S OWN RISK.

You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by Walks Around the World and any supplier with whom you elect to deal, or with whom Walks Around the World deals on your behalf, including but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier’s rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services.

You shall be completely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of your travel bookings through Walks Around the World.
Customer authorizes Walks Around the World to book on third party travel booking sites to fulfill Customer’s travel requests. Customer ratifies Walks Around the World’s actions on Customer’s behalf, including acceptance of such third party’s terms and conditions, which limit Customer’s rights, and Customer agrees to be bound by such actions.
In the event of any inconsistency or ambiguity of terms, Walks Around the World shall benefit from the most favorable term(s) in each instance.
Payments and cancellation
Final payment is due prior to departure according to each supplier’s (airline, hotel, cruise line, transfer company, sightseeing operators, and other travel service vendors) terms and conditions involved in your travel booking. If final and full payment is not received by the applicable due date, reservations are subject to cancellation and deposits shall be forfeited. In some cases there is NO REFUND once a booking is made and paid for. Your right to a refund if you change or cancel your travel plans is limited. All cancellation requests must be sent to Walks Around the World in writing. As a result of cancellation, Walks Around the World’s and third party supplier’s cancellation penalties will apply, which are detailed in your travel documentation, this website, and each of the supplier’s website. Cancellation penalties are advised at time of booking and provided to you upon confirmation. If you have any questions, or any penalties are unclear, please contact Walks Around the World. All cancellation fees will be charged to the credit card you authorized to pay for travel services, or deducted from the supplier’s refund.
Air, check-in, schedule reconfirmation
UNLESS SET FORTH IN WRITING, AIRLINE RESERVATIONS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR TRAVEL PLANS. In such event, it is the Customer’s responsibility to make appropriate air arrangements, as well as transportation to and from the destination where the travel booking originates and returns. Walks Around the World shall not assume any responsibility for any air and/or ground schedule changes. In rare instances, upon departure from a country, certain departure taxes must be paid in cash only, and may vary in price. Due to enhanced security, it is strongly recommended that you check in a minimum of 2 hours prior to scheduled departure for domestic flights and 3 hours prior to scheduled departure time for international flights. Reconfirm flight times at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure time for domestic flights, and 72 hours prior for international flights. Failure to use a reservation may result in automatic cancelation of all continuing and return flights, as well as forfeiture of airfares.
Prospective customers are advised to reserve early to avoid disappointment and additional late booking fees.
No refund for unused arrangements
As Walks Around the World’s prices are oftentimes based on contract rates, there will not be any refund for any unused portion of a travel booking. 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 canceled.
Currency exchange rates fluctuate. Prices are subject to change based upon currency exchange rate fluctuations, provided actual variations have occurred. Additionally, at any time prior to departure and during actual travel, travel suppliers and governments may add or introduce a new fee, tax and/or fuel surcharge and client agrees to pay for such change.
Alterations to confirmed bookings
If you decide to change any portion of your confirmed arrangements prior to departure or during your trip, we will attempt to assist you at our applicable administrative charge, depending upon circumstances of the request.
Important information for domestic air travelers
The Federal Real ID Act mandates stricter security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and other forms of identification and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes identification that does not meet these standards. Beginning on October 1, 2021, every air traveler will need to present Real ID-compliant identification to be permitted to board a domestic flight; therefore, those holding a non-compliant driver’s license will need to present an acceptable alternate form of identification, such as a valid U.S. passport. To avoid disruption to their travel plans, air travelers are strongly encouraged to consult with the Department of Homeland Security ( www.dhs.gov/real-id ) to determine whether their state-issued identification is Real ID-compliant and, if not, what alternate forms of identification will be accepted at the airport.
Health/Security/Travel documentation requirements
Each Customer is responsible to make absolutely certain to have the proper immunizations and required documentation of such immunizations before travel, and to make the necessary accommodation for security rules imposed by government authorities. Walks Around the World shall not assume responsibility for the accuracy of health requirements or vaccination and/or documentation prior to departure or upon landing at the final destination. See your health practitioner for advice. Prior to travel, required inoculations, if any, must be recorded by Customer’s health practitioner on a valid vaccination certificate, which the Customer must carry for proof of inoculation where required. If you are concerned about taking any medications or receiving certain inoculations, check with your health practitioner BEFORE booking. Check the USA State Department Website http://travel.state.gov , for relevant information relating to travel to specific destinations, and the USA Centers for Disease Control http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/ relating to health issues. For further information relating to security, safety issues, crime, the need for travel documentation (such as passports, visas, proof of health/vaccination certificates), health hazards, and other restrictions regarding travel to your domestic and/or international destination(s), and re-entry into the United States visit http://www.tsa.gov , http://www.dot.gov , http://www.faa.gov.us , http://www.ustreas.gov , http://www.cbp.gov on a regular basis for information regarding incidence of disease, terrorism, safety issues, crime, the need for travel documentation (such as passports, visas, proof of health/vaccination certificates), health hazards, and other restrictions regarding travel to your domestic and/or international destination(s), and re-entry into the United States especially your embassy and http://www.uscis.gov/ for non-USA citizens. (Customer is responsible to make Walks Around the World aware when traveling on a passport from a country other than the USA.)
USA federal law prohibits passengers from bringing hazardous materials on the aircraft. (1) USA 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 radio-pharmaceuticals. (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 air line representative(s) on their itinerary. Restrictions on hazardous materials are listed in http://www.tsa.gov/traveler- information/prohibited-items and http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/hazmat_safety/
All passengers are advised to always check the list of countries that require airlines to treat the passenger cabin with insecticides prior to the flight or while on the aircraft on the DOT’s website, as this list is updated from time to time: http://www.dot.gov/office-policy/aviation-policy/aircraft-disinsection-requirements
E-tickets expire a year from issue date unless carrier fare rules in passenger’s itinerary fare provide otherwise.
Limitations of responsibility and disclosure
Walks Around the World acts solely as a booking agent for disclosed principal supplier cruise lines, hotels, airlines, air charters, bus companies, ground transportation, boat purveyors or owners, and other independent contractors providing accommodations, transportation, and/or other services (“supplier(s)”), and is not the source or provider of the travel services. Each of these supplier companies is an independent entity with its own management, and is not subject to the control of Walks Around the World. Customer is advised that the suppliers whose names appear in travel documentation are those actually responsible for providing the travel services purchased, and consents to the use of those suppliers, and understands and agrees each supplier’s Terms and Conditions are contained in printed form and are set forth on their respective websites, which govern the transaction. All bookings are accepted by Walks Around the World as agent for the disclosed travel suppliers on your itinerary. The transportation, accommodations and other services provided by the identified sea, ground, and air operator suppliers offered are subject to the terms and conditions contained in the tickets, exchange orders or vouchers issued by them and/or their suppliers, including Terms and Conditions on their respective websites.
BECAUSE WALKS AROUND THE WORLD ACTS AS AGENT FOR DISCLOSED PRINCIPAL SUPPLIERS, AND DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL THE OPERATIONS OF SUCH INDEPENDENT OPERATORS AND SUPPLIERS, YOU AGREE WALKS AROUND THE WORLD IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, WHICH MAY ARISE OUT OF THESE SERVICES. WALKS AROUND THE WORLD HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, IN CONNECTION WITH THE GOODS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANY PRINCIPAL SUPPLIER BOOKING THROUGH WALKS AROUND THE WORLD’s OFFICE OR THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LIABILITY FOR ANY ACT, ERROR, OMISSION, INJURY, LOSS, ACCIDENT, DELAY OR IRREGULARITY WHICH MAY BE INCURRED THROUGH THE FAULT, NEGLIGENCE, WILFUL ACTS, OMISSIONS OR OTHERWISE OF SUCH SUPPLIER, OR OF ANY SUPPLIER OR THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SERVANTS, OR REPRESENTATIVES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THEIR FAILURE TO DELIVER OR THEIR PARTIAL OR INADEQUATE DELIVERY OF SERVICES, FUEL INCREASES, AND OTHER MATTERS OUTSIDE OF WALKS AROUND THE WORLD’S CONTROL, AND YOU HEREBY EXONERATE WALKS AROUND THE WORLD FROM ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO THE SAME.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) is only applicable within the United States, and facilities for disabled individuals are limited outside its borders. A qualified and physically able companion must accompany travelers who need such assistance. Motorized scooters are unsuitable for many trips. Transportation services, including many tour motor coaches, are not equipped with wheelchair ramps.
Walks Around the World will make every effort to honor the price as originally quoted, however; under certain circumstances additional costs by a supplier or government may be imposed due to an increase in the cost for one or more of the travel components. Prior to full payment, prices including US air transactions or air tours (in, to, or from the US) could increase for certain travel services, including the following: a seat, carriage of passenger baggage, applicable fuel surcharge, or an increase in a government imposed tax or fee. US air transaction or air tour prices will not increase after making full payment, except for charges resulting from government imposed taxes or fees. Certain suppliers reserve the right to increase prices to cover increased costs, fuel surcharges, tariffs and taxes, and to reflect fluctuations in foreign exchange markets. Customer expressly acknowledges acceptance of these conditions applicable to purchase and authorizes Walks Around the World to charge Customer’s credit card for such additional amounts. This consent applies to all travel arranged by Walks Around the World for Customer, and may be revoked at any time with respect to future travel for which Customer has not yet made payment. Five (5) years following the date of Customer’s last travel booking, this consent expires.
Weather conditions, including but not limited to the presence or absence of snow, sunshine, and rainfall are not guaranteed to occur or not occur, and are clearly outside of Walks Around the World’s control. Volcanic eruptions, ash clouds, and wind may be characterized as an adverse weather condition or a natural disaster by suppliers and your travel insurance company, which is beyond the control of Walks Around the World. Walks Around the World reserves the right to cancel any itinerary or any part of it, to make such alterations in the itinerary as it deems necessary, and to refuse to accept or to retain as a member any person of any tour at any time. Walks Around the World shall not assume any responsibility for any air and/or ground schedule changes.
WALKS AROUND THE WORLD HAS SOLELY RECEIVED COMMISSION AND FEES FOR TRAVEL TRANSACTIONS AND CUSTOMER AGREES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT ANY RECOVERY FROM WALKS AROUND THE WORLD WILL BE LIMITED TO THE COMMISSION AND FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER AND ACTUALLY RECEIVED BY WALKS AROUND THE WORLD IN THE PAST TWELVE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.
