CHANGES TO A BOOKING:
Tour cancellation: Omega Tours reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any tour departure in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. Omega Tours will try to re-book the same or similar tour. Omega Tours cannot assume responsibility for any additional costs or any fees relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of air tickets or other travel arrangements not made through Omega Tours.
Omega Tours recommends that all passengers purchase comprehensive travel insurance.
For the benefit of everyone on your vacation, Omega Tours reserves the right to accept or reject any person as a tour participant, and to remove from the tour any participant whose conduct is deemed incompatible with the interests of the other participants.
TRAVELLERS WHO REQUIRE SPECIAL ASSISTANCE
We ask you outline any disability requiring special attention to Omega Tours at the time the reservation is made. Omega Tours will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled travellers, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so, nor is it responsible for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers. Most transportation services, including the touring motorcoach, are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. We regret that we cannot guarantee individual assistance to a tour participant for walking, dining, getting on and off motorcoaches and other vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified and physically able companion must accompany travellers who require such assistance and must assume full responsibility for the handicapped participants well-being. Motorized scooters are unsuitable for touring vacations in Europe.
Smoking is not allowed on transportation that is exclusively provided by Omega Tours.
All tour prices are based on rates (including foreign exchange rates) available at the time of printing and expected to be in effect at the time of departure. Prices are subject to increase without notice if such rates change prior to departure. The current price will be confirmed at the time of reservation.
However, once Omega Tours has received your deposit for any tour departing in 2011, that land price is guaranteed, and any subsequent land cost increases are at our expense, not including surcharges and any government tax increases. Airfares included as part of air inclusive tour prices are guaranteed when we receive full payment. Tour prices are per person, based on double occupancy unless otherwise noted. Single room supplements along with triple and quad room reductions are listed where applicable.
PASSPORTS & VISAS
All passengers require a valid passport valid for 6 months after their trip return date and may require visas. You are responsible for obtaining all visas and entry documents, and for meeting all health and other requirements and any documents required by laws, regulations, orders and/or requirements of the countries to be visited. Multiple entry visas are required for some countries. Non-Canadian citizens must consult with appropriate consulates to determine if any visas are needed. Your Travel Agent will advise you of the necessary documents required.
ACCOMMODATIONS & SERVICES
The Operators shall be responsible to the passenger for supplying the services and accommodations outlined in this brochure, except where such services cannot be fulfilled or the itinerary is changed due to delays or other causes beyond the control of the Operators. In most circumstances, the Operators will do their best to provide comparable services, accommodation and itineraries. No refunds will be given in this scenario.
One suitcase per person is allowed on our tours. Due to limited coach capacity, this single bag should have dimensions not exceeding 30”x21”x11” and weight not exceeding 50 lbs (23kg). (*Airline baggage allowance may vary by carrier). We regret we are unable to accept a second suitcase, or any luggage exceeding these limits. Air carriers may also impose fees if size or weight limits on checked or carry-on luggage are exceeded. Carry-on bags should not exceed the dimensions of 12” x 11” x 6”. For safety reasons, wheeled carry-on bags are not suitable as hand luggage on motorcoaches. No responsibility is accepted for loss of or damage to baggage or any of the tour participant’s belongings. Baggage insurance is recommended.
Please note that any request for a refund is subject to the terms and conditions of the brochure; no refund can be made for unused services of less than 48 consecutive hours, for unused transportation where group activity tickets are involved, or for voluntary modifications made by the tour participant.
Omega Tours and its employees and agents only act as representatives of the passengers and accept no responsibility for the passengers or for the quality of services provided in hotels, by airlines trains, buses or any other vehicle used in connection with the trip. This also applies to delays, luggage loss or damage, or accidents incurred by passengers resulting from the use of these means of transportation, whatever the cause. If, for the comfort or well-being of passengers or for any other reason, it becomes necessary or advisable to change itinerary or arrangements, these changes will be made without any compensation due. All bookings made with any provider of transport, facilities, meals, other goods or of any services, are subject to the terms and conditions imposed by them in relation to matters not covered by our agreement. This includes any of the above mentioned Operators in the Omega Tours group of companies. It is your responsibility to comply with the terms, conditions or requirements of any service provider, or any country or governmental authorities, or to bear any costs or losses incurred as a consequence of you not complying with them. Every effort is made to ensure brochure accuracy at time of printing, however Omega Tours cannot be held responsible for printing or typographical errors, or errors arising from unforeseen circumstances.
Omega Tours constantly strives to improve its tour itineraries. If such improvements can be made, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods duplicate departures may operate, and sometimes in reverse order, in which case hotels may change from those stated on the itinerary pages.
