RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENTS
A deposit of $250.00 U.S. per person and a completed reservation form are required to secure a reservation. Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Telephone reservations may be made by Visa or MasterCard payment of the deposit; a completed reservation form must be mailed. Full payment is required no later than 50 days prior to departure.

NOTE: Checks may not be accepted less than 50 days prior to departure unless certified.
Prices are based on double occupancy. Where double rooms are not available, accommodation will be in triple rooms, with no reduction of price. Single rooms are available in some hotels at a supplementary cost. Ask for details when you make your reservations.
Tips and gratuities are at the discretion of the pilgrim and are not included.
Baggage is subject to airline regulations. What follows is our best understanding of those regulations: Each Pilgrim may check one bag, with maximum weight of 50 lbs. and maximum combined dimensions of 62 inches. One carry-on with maximum dimensions of eight inches by 20 inches is also permitted. Luggage is the responsibility of the Pilgrim and the airlines, not the organizers. Claims for lost or damaged luggage must be made through the airlines or other carriers by the Pilgrim.
If you cancel more than 60 days prior to departure, you are entitled to a refund of all monies paid to date of cancellation less $80.00. (This includes a $30.00 non-refundable handling fee.) If you cancel 60 days to 50 days before departure, you are entitled to a refund of all monies paid to date of cancellation less $150.00 and less any penalties applied by (but not limited to) the airlines and hotels. (This also includes the $30.00 non-refundable handling fee.) There is no refund if canceled four weeks or less prior to departure. Cancellations must be in writing. Date of postmark prevails. Insurance for cancellation is available from the travel agent. The organizers are not responsible for this insurance.
ORGANIZERS’ RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY
The organizers reserve the right to decline or accept or retain any persons as a pilgrim participant, to make changes in itinerary necessary for the comfort, convenience and safety of the pilgrim participants, and to cancel the pilgrimage at any time. If the organizers cancel the pilgrimage, it shall have no responsibility beyond the refund of the monies paid to the organizers by the pilgrim participant.
The organizers are responsible for making arrangements for all pilgrimage facilities and services described in the brochure and reservation form. If for any reason such facilities and services cannot be supplied exactly as described, the organizers may substitute comparable facilities and services. Any additional expenses incurred are the responsibility of the pilgrim participant.
The organizers will use their best efforts to ensure the comfort and safety of participants, as long as they are with the pilgrimage group, however, the organizers will not otherwise be liable for participants’ safety and well-being. Furthermore, the organizers are not liable for the safety and well-being of any participant who is separated from the pilgrimage group whether voluntarily or not. Health and accident insurance are the responsibility of the pilgrim participant. The pilgrim participant agrees that the organizers shall not be liable for any damage or loss (including personal injury, death and property loss) or expense occasioned by any act or omission of any persons, including suppliers of services, or for any act of war, insurrection, revolt, or other civil uprising, military action, strike, or act of God occurring in either country of origin, through passage, or destination.
The airlines, hotels and land operators and other suppliers providing services are independent contractors and not agents, employees, or associates of the organizers. The organizers assume no responsibility or liability in connection with the service or any aircraft, motor coach, taxi, or other conveyance which may be used in the performance of its duty to passengers. All vouchers and other documents for services issued by such independent contractors and/or the organizers are subject to the terms and conditions specified thereon and to the laws of the country where services are supplied.
The organizers are not responsible for any domestic travel arrangements. Pilgrim participants must arrange connecting flights or other travel arrangements so as to arrive at the departure point in time to join the pilgrim flight. In the event of failure of such arrangements, however caused, participants may join the pilgrimage, however, the organizers are not responsible for any additional expenses of participants in doing so.
All rates are based on current currency exchange rates, current airfares, and pre-established minimum number of passengers traveling, and rates are subject to change.
