JTB USA, Inc. ("We") act as an agent for the airlines, tour operators,
cruiselines, lodging providers, car-rental companies, ground operators, and any
other suppliers of travel services shown on documents or itineraries obtained from
JTB USA, Inc. We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of such suppliers
or their subcontractors or their failure to provide services, adhere to their own
schedules or honor their contracts.
We have no special knowledge regarding foreign entry requirements, unsafe conditions,
health hazards, weather hazards, supplier bankruptcies, or the suitability for disabled
persons of any portion of any tour or conveyance. For foreign entry requirements
go to http://travel.state.gov/.
For State Department travel advisories, go to http://travel.state.gov/. For foreign health requirements
and dangers go to
http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/default.aspx. You agree that you understand that
there are dangers, hazards, and risks inherent in travel, and foreign countries
present different levels of and causes of risk including but not limited to air,
land and sea travel, dietary differences, diseases less common than in the United
States, differences in legal expectations and protections, building code and other
safety differences, any of which could result in serious or even fatal injuries
and property damage. You agree to assume all the risks and responsibilities surrounding
the participation in tour programs, air, cruiseline, resort, rail, car and hotel
services obtained from JTB USA, Inc., and understand and agree that JTB USA. Inc.
cannot and does not assume responsibility for any such personal injuries or property
damage. You hereby release us from any claims resulting in whole or in part from
any problem covered in this paragraph and any other causes not within our control.
All airlines impose cancellation and change penalties up to 100% for many discount
tickets. All tour operators, cruiselines, and some rail lines and resort hotels
impose cancellation and change penalties, too. Please view the application rules
before you make your reservation.
Flight delays are very common today. If your flight is delayed for any reason, the
airlines are not required by law to pay for your en route expenses, such as meals,
hotels, taxis and phone calls.
As soon as you receive your booked itinerary, check it thoroughly to make sure it
is correct as to dates, times, fares and rates.
Schedule changes are quite common today. We urge you to re-check exact flight or
train times prior to departure and prior to you return.
If you book a trip, we must collect the tour operator's or cruiseline's deposit
when reservations are made. The amount of the deposit, the refund allowed, and the
time for canceling vary according to the tour operator or cruiseline. We do not
endorse or recommend any particular third-party tour operator or cruiseline; our
role is strictly limited to facilitating the booking. After you finish your booking,
we will send you any agreement required by the travel services supplier, along with
a request that you sign that agreement and return it to us. In the event of any
inconsistency between that agreement and this Agreement the latter shall govern.
If your package trip involves a charter flight, or if your vacation involves an
air-only charter flight, federal regulations require that you also sign the charter
operator's participant agreement, which will be mailed to you. It is extremely important
that you realize that, for charters:
- Departure times (both going and returning) can be changed at the last minute. These
delays legally can be as much as 48 hours (approximately two days late).
- Your flight may be advertised as non-stop; however, the operator may legally change
the routing and make intermediate stops at the last minutes.
- The charter operator may legally substitute types of aircraft and even airlines
at the last minute. Charter aircraft are generally not as comfortable as regularly
- The charter operator generally takes no responsibility for baggage or baggage security.
It is not unusual to have luggage misplaced.
- Charter trips have very stiff cancellation penalties. No one plans a trip with the
idea of canceling, however, sometimes that becomes necessary and you must understand
what to expect or not to expect in the way of refunds.
- Usually, no frequent flier miles are accrued.
- Advance seat assignments are frequently not available.
For all vacation trips, you must have made full payment before we release the tickets
In the event that you purchase a ticket or tickets containing flight coupons that
you may or may not use, we do not guarantee that the airlines will honor the ticket
or tickets, and you agree to indemnify us against airline claims for the difference
between the full fare for your actual itinerary, and the value of the ticket that
