Because some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
Payment for any and all travel packages are to be made in full, payable to Ciao Bella Tours, at least 60 days before the departure date. Any returned checks are subject to a fee of $30 for each returned check.
Traveler shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all necessary documents BEFORE departure (i.e. valid passport, Visas (when applicable), vaccinations and/or immunizations, etc.).
If the travel package includes rental properties, including, but not limited to, apartments, houses, villas, and boats, Traveler shall be responsible for all charges incurred as a result of any damage or destruction to such properties caused by Traveler.
CBT is not liable for weather conditions, or any damages sustained as a result of such weather conditions, nor will CBT be liable for any and all illnesses, accidents, or deaths sustained by you or any other traveler on trip. Trip insurance is not included with, nor required for, CBT’s travel packages. However, trip insurance is highly recommended for all travelers. It is the travelers’ responsibility to purchase adequate travel insurance to cover trip interruptions, including, but not limited to, the incidents discussed above. Furthermore, CBT is not liable for any hotel and/or transportation cancellation fees due to missed or delayed flights.
Finally, CBT shall not be responsible or liable for the operation of any third party service provider which may provide service to the Traveler. This includes, but is not limited to, the failure of public transportation to operate as planned or museums and other attractions to open as scheduled.
Notwithstanding any of the conditions set forth herein, CBT shall be responsible for tickets issued in connection with travel via land operated transportation only. No airline tickets or cruise tickets shall be issued by CBT.
All travel rates quoted by CBT are tentative and not guaranteed until final booking confirmation is issued. In addition, CBT does not guarantee foreign currency rates. Tour fees published online or in the CBT brochures are based on currency exchange rates as of the date of publication by CBT. In the event of a significant currency fluctuation, CBT reserves the right to adjust its tour fees and apply a currency surcharge. While CBT attempts to get the best prices for travel, museums, and attractions at the destination for the Traveler, CBT cannot determine when third party service providers will offer discounts and other promotions which may result in a cost savings to the Traveler and coincidentally coincide with the Traveler’s booked dates. As such, CBT will not refund any monies to the Traveler should these types of promotional events occur.
All cancellation requests are the responsibility of the Traveler. Cancellation requests made prior to your departure date and must be in writing. You may submit your cancellation request by mail, facsimile, or electronic mail. However, it is your responsibility to confirm that CBT received your request. CBT shall not be liable for any lost or stolen correspondence, letters, emails or facsimiles. All cancellation requests (except for a la carte or single tour purchases) are subject to the following fees:
120-96 days 80% refundable
95-31 days 50% refundable
30 days or less No refund
A la Carte or single tour purchases are nonrefundable at any time. By submitting a booking request form for Alla Carta, you hereby agree to the following:
1. All a la carte or single tour purchases are to be paid in full at the time of purchase. Once a booking request form is submitted, there are no refunds.
2. CBT may use the email address on the booking request form to contact me and provide me with the details and confirmation of my reservation. It is my responsibility to ensure that the supplied email address is correct and properly operating.
