CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
CIGAR EDUCATED TOURS may be cancelled by CIGAR EDUCATED or the Tour Operator due to inclement weather conditions, or any other reason whatsoever. In which case, and as your sole recourse, full refunds will be made to guests who have purchased cancelled TOURS.
TOURS may be canceled or modified depending on the number of guests participating. Some excursions require a minimum number of guests to operate. If this minimum is not met, excursions may be cancelled by the Tour Operator and full refunds will be issued.
For online cancellations that occur outside the cut-off window, 3 days prior to sailing, a full refund will automatically be posted to the credit card that was used to pay for the shore excursion order. Please allow 5-7 business days for the credit to post to your account. No changes can be made within the cut-off window. If you need to make changes after the cut-off date, you must wait until FLIGHT and see the TOUR Manager. In the event of a booking cancellation within the cut-off window, a full refund will automatically be posted to the credit card used to pay for the order.
If the designated contact person on a TOUR order must cancel from their TOUR booking and the remaining guests who are FLYING would like to retain the TOUR order, a new contact person needs to be assigned. If a designated contact person cancels and does not reassign the responsibility, the associated TOUR orders will automatically cancel and be refunded.
Once onboard, cancellations are subject to a 75% cancellation charge. All TOUR orders are non-refundable. A refund, less any applicable cancellation charges, will be applied to the designated contact person’s sail and sign account. CIGAR EDUCATED will only offer TOUR credit for TOUR order refunds, but note any credit not utilized by the end of your TOUR will be refunded via check to the order’s designated contact person on the morning of debarkation.
Guests are encouraged to purchase CIGAR EDUCATED Vacation Protection Plan to cover any eligible non-refundable TOUR cancellation charges.
CIGAR EDUCATED is not responsible for any losses, damage, death, injuries, or claims whatsoever arising from, connected with, or related to any activities engaged in by guests while off CIGAR EDUCATED TOURS. This includes all TOURS, whether booked online, or sold by third parties ashore. Guests engage in all such activities off the ship at their own risk.
CIGAR EDUCATED acts only as an agent for the independent tour operators supplying excursions or services. Independent contractors operate all TOURS, including any related transportation. CIGAR EDUCATED neither supervises nor controls their actions, nor makes any representation either expressed or implied as to their suitability. CIGAR EDUCATED sells tickets for all excursions as a convenience to guests only. Tour operators, transportation providers, and their employees are neither agents nor employees of CIGAR EDUCATED, notwithstanding their use of any signage or clothing which may contain the name “CIGAR EDUCATEDl” or other related trade names or logos. It is understood and agreed that CIGAR EDUCATED assumes no responsibility for, nor guarantees performance of, and in no event shall be liable for, any loss, damage, injury, or death in connection with said excursions or transportation. Please review your ticket for further information regarding your rights and obligations as well as those of CIGAR EDUCATED.
EXCURSIONS/TOURS & ACTIVITIES NOT SOLD BY CIGAR EDUCATED
CIGAR EDUCATED recommends that guests do not engage in excursions, tours or activities that are not sold through CIGAR EDUCATED as CIGAR EDUCATED has no familiarity whatsoever with these services or their operations.
Please note that there are certain restrictions based on age, health, weight and/or height, which have been imposed by the individual excursion operators for your own safety. CIGAR EDUCATED urges you to abide by them.
Tour operators have the right to require any individual to withdraw from an TOUR at any time if they deem that individual’s conduct detrimental to or incompatible with the interests, comfort, well-being or harmony of the group as a whole. Tour operators reserve the right to alter or adjust excursions to meet local conditions for participant safety and convenience. Neither CIGAR EDUCATED nor local tour operators will extend financial reimbursement to compensate for a guest’s disappointment in the event that circumstances beyond the reasonable control of CIGAR EDUCATED or the tour operator make it impossible to provide services as intended.
Prices for TOURS are quoted per person, in U.S. dollars and are subject to change without notice. Prices also vary by departure date and time and are capacity controlled. Some restrictions may apply. Most prices include transportation and when noted, meals, refreshments, guides and entrance fees.
Neither CIGAR EDUCATED, nor the Tour Operators will be responsible for personal possessions. Do not leave your possessions unattended at any time, either in the vehicles in which you are traveling or otherwise. Remember coats, umbrellas, cameras, handbags, wallets, traveling bags, binoculars, and similar items remain, at all times throughout the TOUR, under the guest’s custody and control.
Guests should consider that standards of transportation vary considerably throughout the world. Air-conditioned motorcoaches are not available in many areas. In some destinations, local buses are the best available.
Please note that motorcoaches and other forms of transportation may require guests to climb 2 to 3 steps. Most, but not all motorcoaches can accommodate collapsible wheelchairs. Staff is not obligated to lift guests into or out of vehicles.
REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION & IDENTIFICATION
Please note that travel documentation requirements vary by destination and change often. It is the responsibility of the guest to provide valid travel and medical history documents required for air travel, debarkation at various ports of call and re-entry into the appropriate country of origin.
If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This is the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except in writing, signed by all parties.
