Terms & Conditions
This Source Events, Inc. (“Source Events”) Guest Reservation Terms and Conditions agreement (this “Agreement”) shall be deemed to be an acceptance and agreement by you to be bound by all the terms and conditions set out herein. Source Events acts solely in the capacity as agent and shall have no responsibility for the acts and omissions of independent contractors, such as air carriers, cruise lines, hotels, resort operators, transportation companies, tour operators, restaurateurs, medical personnel and other providers of services or facilities services hereafter referred to collectively as the “Suppliers”.

The deposit as described on the attached Reservation Form must be provided in order to activate this Agreement and secure your participation. Once Source Events has received your deposit or full payment, your rate is secure except in the event of substantial increases in operating costs, fuel costs, tariffs or taxes prior to the departure date. In such cases, we reserve the right to add a surcharge, not to exceed $100 per person. All subsequent payments must be made in accordance with the schedule detailed on the Reservation Form. Failure to make timely payments of any reservation will cause your reservation to be canceled without notice and all amounts paid to date held in accordance with Source Events’ cancellation policies. If you are paying by credit card, the final payment, and additional deposits will be automatically charged as indicated, unless Source Events is notified at least 3 business days before such payment is due. If you are paying by check, your check must be received by the date required or your reservation is subject to cancellation without notice.

Cancellation Charges per person
• Over 150 Days: $500
• 121-150: 25% of the total package price

Passports, Visas and other Required Documentation
You are responsible for bringing all travel documents such as passports and visas required by those countries which you are visiting, including countries that you may visit “in transit”. The expiration date on your passport must not occur for at least six months from the end of your trip. If you do not have the necessary documentation you may be prevented from boarding a flight, or cruise, from entering a country and/ or participating in activities provided by Source Events and the Suppliers, and may be subject to a fine or other punishment. If, as a result of your lack of proper documentation, a fine or other cost is incurred by either Source Events and or the Suppliers, you agree to indemnify Source Events for such expenses. It is your sole responsibility to identify all travel, inoculation and health requirements and obtain and have available when necessary the appropriate and valid travel documents, such as passports and visas and inoculation documents. No refunds will be given to individuals who fail to bring the proper documentation.
Source Events strongly recommends that you invest in travel insurance and is proud to offer coverage through the premier insurance provider Travel Guard.
