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. PLEASE READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE. 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 Global Community and you, the Customer. These terms restrict your rights and remedies and provide protection to Global Community. These also include warranty disclaimers and liability exclusions. By using this website you acknowledge and agree (a) this is a fair balance because this 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 Global Community offices. 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 this website. IF THERE IS ANY PART OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE OR GLOBAL COMMUNITY’S SERVICES. No alterations to these terms and conditions may be made by any GLOBAL COMMUNITY employee, authorized representative or agent, unless in writing by an authorized officer of GLOBAL COMMUNITY.
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 traveling 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 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. Global Community strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger, if their 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 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 that 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: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_4965.html) 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: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/inadmissibility/index.asp).
RISKS/SAFETY. Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Global Community 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, GLOBAL COMMUNITY 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 CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH EVENTS AT CUSTOMER’S OWN RISK.
USE OF GLOBAL COMMUNITY ACCESS AND INFORMATION FOR TRAVEL BOOKINGS. You warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and possess the legal authority to enter into this agreement and to make travel bookings with Global Community by any means, including our Website in accordance with all terms and conditions herein. You agree to be financially responsible for all of your travel bookings (as well as for use of your account by others, including, without limitation, minors living with you). You agree to supervise all usage of Global Community communications by minors under your name or account. You also warrant that all information supplied by you or members of your household transacting business with Global Community is true and accurate. Without limitation, any speculative, false or fraudulent reservation or any reservation in anticipation of demand is prohibited. You agree that the travel services reservations facilities provided by Global Community shall be used only to make legitimate reservations or purchases for you or for another person for whom you are legally authorized to act.
Separate supplier terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you select. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by Global Community and any supplier with whom you elect to deal, 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 understand that any violation of any such supplier’s conditions of purchase may result in cancellation of your reservation(s) or purchase, in your being denied access to any flights, hotels, cruises or automobiles, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s) or purchase, and in Global Community debiting your account for any costs Global Community incurs as a result of such violation. You shall be completely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes and assessments arising out of your travel bookings through access provided by Global Community.
SELLER OF TRAVEL. GLOBAL COMMUNITY is a registered seller of travel in California, CST. (Registration as a seller of travel in California does not constitute the state’s approval.) The California Seller of Travel law requires sellers of travel to have a trust account or bond. Global Community maintains a trust account for all client payments and deposits.
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 Global Community in writing. As a result of cancellation, Global Community’s and third-party supplier’s cancellation penalties will apply, which are detailed in your travel documentation, this website and each supplier’s websites. 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 Global Community 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.
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. Global Community 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 cancellation of all continuing and return flights, as well as forfeiture of airfares.
LATE BOOKINGS. Prospective customers are advised to reserve early to avoid disappointment and additional late booking fees.
NO REFUND FOR UNUSED ARRANGEMENTS. As Global Community’s prices are 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.
POTENTIAL PRICE INCREASE DISCLOSURE & CONSENT. Global Community 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 U.S. air transactions or air tours (in, to or from the U.S.) 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. U.S. 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 Global Community to charge Customer’s credit card for such additional amounts. This consent applies to all travel arranged by Global Community for Customer that includes such scheduled air transportation, 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 execution, this consent expires.
CURRENCY FLUCTUATIONS. Currency exchange rates fluctuate. Prices are subject to change based upon currency exchange rate fluctuations, provided actual variations have occurred.
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 of between $100 to $300 per change/per person, depending upon circumstances of the request.
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. Global Community 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 U.S. State Department Website http://travel.state.gov, for relevant information relating to travel to specific destinations, and the U.S. 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 www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov.us, www.ustreas.gov, 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 Global Community aware when traveling on a passport from a country other than the U.S.) Global Community neither controls nor warrants the issuance of visas related to applicable travel. Should a visa not be issued, Global Community is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. Please note that U.S. rules regarding entry and exit change on a daily basis. When traveling 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 found http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. Examples: DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, U.S. Passport, a foreign government passport.
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. U.S. federal law prohibits passengers from bringing hazardous materials on the aircraft. (1) U.S. 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 radioactive 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.

Restrictions on hazardous materials are listed here: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/prohibited-items.
INSECTICIDE NOTICE. All passengers are referred 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. E-tickets expire a year from issue date unless carrier fare rules in passenger’s itinerary fare provide otherwise.
LIMITATIONS OF RESPONSIBILITY AND DISCLOSURE. Global Community 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 Global Community. 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 Global Community as agent for the 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 GLOBAL COMMUNITY 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 GLOBAL COMMUNITY IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, WHICH MAY ARISE OUT OF THESE SERVICES. GLOBAL COMMUNITY 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 GLOBAL COMMUNITY’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, WILLFUL 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 GLOBAL COMMUNITY’S CONTROL, AND YOU HEREBY EXONERATE GLOBAL COMMUNITY FROM ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO THE SAME. 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 Global Community’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 Global Community. Global Community 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 of any tour any person at any time. Global Community shall not assume any responsibility for any air and/or ground schedule changes. GLOBAL COMMUNITY HAS SOLELY RECEIVED COMMISSION AND FEES FOR TRAVEL TRANSACTIONS AND CUSTOMER AGREES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT ANY RECOVERY FROM GLOBAL COMMUNITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE COMMISSION AND FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER AND ACTUALLY RECEIVED BY GLOBAL COMMUNITY IN THE PAST TWELVE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.

Global Community shall not be deemed to be in breach of these terms and conditions or otherwise be liable to you, 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 Global Community, 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 the trip. Payment of any refund by Global Community to you as a result of the non-performance of any obligations hereunder shall remain in its sole and absolute discretion, although Global Community shall use its reasonable efforts to reimburse you where possible. However, Global Community shall be entitled to deduct from any refund recoverable the reasonable actual and potential costs to Global Community of the Force Majeure and applicable cancellation fees.
Regarding civil unrest, once Global Community has investigated the prevailing situation, as it deems fit, it shall remain in Global Community’s sole and absolute discretion whether to proceed with the trip. You may in such circumstances cancel the trip subject to Global Community’s and each supplier’s terms and conditions.
TRAVEL PROTECTION. GLOBAL COMMUNITY OFFERS ACCESS TO MANY OPTIONAL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES TO ENHANCE EVERY TRAVEL EXPERIENCE.
