Explorations by Thor ‘EBT’ Terms and Conditions & Cancellation Policy – Personal TravelerPosted: Updated:
Baggage will be the responsibility of the travelers for the duration of their trip and stay.
EBT will attempt to accommodate the special needs of disabled travelers or guests with special dietary needs. However, we are not responsible in the event that hotels and tour providers in Italy cannot provide guests with wheelchair ramps, accessible bathrooms or special assistance with walking, dining, etc. A physically able companion may accompany travelers with special needs and must assume full responsibility. The traveler represents that neither he nor she nor anyone traveling with him or her has any physical condition, disability or other condition that would create a hazard to himself or herself or others participating on a tour.
Travelers should arrive with all their documents in order according to the rules established by each country. Your passport should be with you at all times.
EBT recommends that you purchase a travel protection plan to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected such as a last-minute cancellation, loss or damage to baggage, costs arising from acts of God, inconveniences during the tours, overseas medical expenses, etc. Travel protection plans include coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, Trip Delay Baggage Delay and more.
EBT acts as an intermediary between travelers and transport business, hotels, etc. EBT declines responsibility for acts or omissions of third parties and other irregularities that may occur during your trip which are beyond our control. In circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to make changes as necessary in the itineraries, travel dates, transportation, etc. We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule any tour for any reason such as insufficient demand or if the tour provider is unable to perform the tour due to risk of the safety of guests, e.g. dangerous weather conditions. EBT is not responsible if an airline cancels, reschedules or delays a flight for any reason. EBT is not responsible for and will not provide any refund for portions due to cancelled, rescheduled; or delayed flights.
