SUPPLIER RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
Seaside Destinations Travel does not provide, own, or control the travel services and products that are provided as part of your trip, such as flights, accommodations, rental cars, packages, or travel insurance (the “Travel Products”). The Travel Products are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Travel Providers” “Suppliers”). The Travel Providers are responsible for the Travel Products. The Travel Provider’s terms and privacy policies apply to your booking so you must agree to and understand those terms. Furthermore, the terms of the actual travel provider (airline, hotel, tour operator, etc.) apply to your travel, so you must also agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Travel Provider is at your own risk; Seaside Destinations Travel does not bear any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking or during your travel. Hence, as the client you agree that Seaside Destinations Travel LLC acts only as agent for the client in acquiring transportation, hotel accommodations, sightseeing and other privileges, or services for the clients’ benefit, and on the express condition that Seaside Destinations Travel LLC shall not be responsible for any loss, accident, injury, delay, defect, omission or irregularity which may occur or be occasioned, whether by reason of any act, negligence or default of any company or person engaged in or responsible for carrying out any of the arrangements, or otherwise in connection therewith.
BOOKING PRICING AND PAYMENT
Planning any vacation takes extensive time and effort before the departure date ever arrives. We strive to make this process easier for you by providing our services on a complimentary basis. You don’t pay anymore and we do all the work. To begin, you will complete the Vacation Planning Form. Once we receive the form, we will contact you and begin planning your vacation. After the itinerary is finalized, you must make payments in accordance with the instructions we give you.
Seaside Destinations Travel is required to pay all suppliers well in advance of your tour date. Some tours and airlines will require a larger or payment in full to hold your booking. Customer will be notified of all payment and deposit requirements. 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 and any instructions we give you.
If final and full payment is not received by the applicable due date, reservations are subject to cancellation and deposits shall be forfeited. Any refund you may be eligible for is subject to the terms and conditions of the Suppliers that are responsible for the elements of your booking. In some cases, there is NO REFUND once a booking is made and paid for.
While we do accept major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, customers must provide to us a signed charge authorization agreement for every transaction for your trip. Your authorization is a binding agreement for us to charge your card and as such you waive any right to chargeback in the case of cancellation for any cause (excepting fraud), including a Force Majeure event, as defined herein, and agree to refund policies and procedures as outlined in these Terms and Conditions. In the event a Participant attempts to chargeback, reverse, or recollect a trip payment already made without the authorization of Seaside Destinations Travel, we reserve the right to collect all additional costs, fees and expenses associated with such chargeback, reversal or recollection, including, without limitation, attorney fees.
Seaside Destinations Travel 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. 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 Seaside Destinations Travel to charge Customer’s credit card for such additional amounts.
Prospective customers are advised to reserve early to avoid disappointment and additional late booking fees.
NO REFUND FOR UNUSED ARRANGEMENTS
As Seaside Destinations Travel’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.
Because your suppliers are paid in advance, your right to a refund if you change or cancel your travel plans is limited. All cancellation requests must be sent to Seaside Destinations Travel in writing. As a result of cancellation, Seaside Destinations Travel’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. Seaside Destinations Travel charges a cancellation fee of $100 per adult booking (any booking for an individual 18 years or older), which must be paid before any cancellations will be made. 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 your Seaside Destinations Travel advisor. All cancellation fees will be charged to the credit card you authorized to pay for travel services, or deducted from the supplier’s refund. There is no refund for cancellation due to Force Majeure as set forth below.
The terms and conditions of the suppliers also apply to amendments in your booking. Some suppliers charge a fee for amendments. Suppliers may also charge cancellation fees or penalties for amendments. We will not be responsible for any fees or charges should you choose to amend your booking.
CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS BY THE OPERATOR
We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the operator needs to make a significant change to your confirmed booking or to cancel. We will also liaise between you and the operator in relation to any alternative arrangements offered by the operator but we will have no further liability to you.
During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing trips and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances itinerary changes are made by Operators seeking to reduce inconvenience to customers. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change, and no compensation will be payable to customers. Holidays, closing days, severe weather and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled regional meals, sightseeing or other activities. If a property, supplier, activity, or area is deleted for any reason, it may be replaced with a comparable one at the sole discretion of the supplier. In such case no refund will be available. If you feel your enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date.
“Force Majeure” means, in relation to Seaside Destinations Travel, any circumstances beyond the reasonable control of Seaside Destinations Travel, (including, but without limitation, acts of God, explosion, flood, tempest, forceful wind, fire or accident, war or threat of war declared or undeclared, acts of terrorism, sabotage, insurrection, riots, strikes, civil disturbance, requisition, sickness, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, government intervention, weather conditions, defects in machinery and vehicles, delay, wildlife, or other circumstances beyond our control).
Seaside Destinations Travel shall not be deemed to be in breach of these Terms and Conditions or otherwise be liable to you, and shall not provide any refund, by reason of delay in performance, or by non-performance, of any of its obligations hereunder to the extent that any such delay or non-performance is due to any Force Majeure.
If Seaside Destinations Travel, and/or any of its travel suppliers, are affected by Force Majeure, they shall be entitled to, and may in their sole and absolute discretion, vary or cancel any itinerary or arrangement in relation to your trip.
Seaside Destinations Travel strongly recommends you purchase travel protection for the trip. Such plan at a minimum should cover Trip Cancellation or Interruption, Cancel for Any Reason, Medical Expense, Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, and Baggage. Travel protection plans can help protect you in the event of loss of non-refundable trip deposits and payments that result from cancellation or trip interruption (due to a covered reason such as injury or illness before or during the trip). It also helps with reimbursement for medical emergency costs (including very costly medical evacuation costs), missed connections and baggage loss.
Seaside Destinations Travel is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel protection plans. Seaside Destinations Travel cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured's existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection, call your insurer or insurance agent or broker.
Certain countries have a requirement for foreign visitors to have valid medical insurance on entry. Seaside Destinations Travel cannot be held responsible for denied entry if a guest is unable to provide details to authorities of insurance or denial of entry for any reason. 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 you choose to travel without adequate coverage, we will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, for which travel protection plan coverage would otherwise have been available.
TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING TSA AND DHS ACCEPTABLE IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

It is your responsibility to be aware of travel warnings and advisories as announced by the U.S. State Department. Should you choose to travel to a country that has been issued a travel warning or advisory, Seaside Destinations Travel will not be liable for damages or losses that result from travel to such destinations.

While this is not a common practice, we want you to be aware that it is a possibility. This process includes the following: (1) spray the aircraft cabin with an aerosolized insecticide while passengers are on board or (2) treat the aircraft's interior surfaces with a residual insecticide while passengers are not on board.

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 airline representative(s) on their itinerary.
