Terms and Conditions

TERMS & CONDITIONS

TOUR PRICE
The tour price is per person, based on double occupancy in hotel rooms.  Single rooms are subject to availability with an additional charge. (If a participant cannot supply a roommate and Adventure Bible Tours is unable to do so, or the roommate cancels before departure, the participant will have to pay the supplemental charge. Participants may be billed after the final payment due date for single room accommodations as necessary.)

Prices are based on costs, operational charges, tariffs, rate of exchange, prices, taxes, levies, rates, and other considerations. These costs are subject to change, and such increases in price will be added to the participant's final billing. Adventure Bible Tours reserves the right to vary itineraries, prices, and to substitute facilities and/or hotels of equal or better quality if necessary.

When booking your reservation, a partial non-refundable deposit is required for each person. Reservations, deposits, and final payments are due no later than 85 days before departure (unless otherwise specified on itinerary). Due dates may vary depending on the tour.

AIRFARE, TAXES, AND FEES

Such fees may be subject to increase by governments and/or airlines and will be the responsibility of the individual participant at any time. Baggage weight, size restrictions, and fees may change and are the responsibility of the individual participant.

Adventure Bible Tours will arrange for the best-priced airfare available at the time of booking. Participants wishing to cancel and or change their air reservation may be subject to cancellation penalties.  ABT does not have the ability to assign seating for flights. Seat assignments will be done at the airport check-in. All taxes, fuel charges, and security fees are subject to change based on the ticketing date.

Airfares quoted by Adventure Bible Tours are group fares (unless otherwise specified on itinerary) and cannot be combined with other promotional offers. Airlines involved in tours are not responsible for any act, omission, or event during the time participants are not on board their planes or conveyances. Adventure Bible Tours is not responsible for unforeseen flight delays, charges due to changes required during political unrest, or schedule changes imposed by the airlines.  Air schedules may be subject to change at the discretion of the airlines. Upgrades and associated costs are the sole responsibility of the participant after ticketing.

It is the participant’s responsibility to provide valid identification in the form of a passport or other required identification at the time of airport check-in.

If you choose to purchase a land-only package and arrange your own domestic and international flight independently, Adventure Bible Tours will not be responsible for domestic, international flights or transfers of any kind. Adventure Bible Tours is not responsible for any international flight schedule changes. If domestic tickets are purchased by a participant, all penalties and fare differences will be paid by the client. ‘Land Only’ participants are not guaranteed airport meetings and assistance, including transfers to and from the airport.
