Terms and Conditions
Beyond Common Travel, LLC, / DBA Pampered Journeys acts as a “Booking Agent” for products and services that are not directly supplied by us (e.g., air carriage and ground transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, tours, cruises, etc.
Covid 19 has brought about several changes in the way we travel. We have no control over delays, cancellations, or changes in itineraries deemed necessary by the carrier. Some destinations require that you are fully vaccinated. We strongly encourage travel protection to protect your investment.
A deposit, as indicated in your quote, along with a completed registration form is required for all new reservations with Pampered Journeys.
All final payment dates are clearly noted on the invoice of Pampered Journeys. All late payments will be assessed a late fee of $50.00. If you are paying late, you must send your request by email and give us the date you will make your late payment. If you fail to make your final payment by the final payment date, your reservation will automatically cancel and all previous payments will be forfeited.
Method of Payment
We accept credit card payments only. Payments are received via an online encrypted credit card authorization form. Once completed, that form will stay on file for the duration of the trip.
Changes to a reservation
All requests to make changes to a reservation must be made in writing and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a $50/person fee to research any changes to your reservation after the final booking. Examples of a change request that will incur a change fee include but are not limited to, the following requests: 1. Room type; 2. Hotel change; 3. Flight change; 4. Cabin change on the airline (i.e. moving from coach to another class of service); 5. Changing dates of travel; 6. Adding passengers to reservations.; 7. Removing passengers from reservations. Any fees imposed by the airline are in addition to the our $50.00 fee.
All cancellations must be made in writing and emailed to email@example.com a $50/person fee to initiate any cancellations – with or without insurance.
Unfortunately, without the purchase of trip insurance, all payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. The best way to guard against any unforeseen circumstances is by purchasing trip insurance.
If multiple people are in a reservation and one person needs to cancel, the trip will need to be rebooked and will be requoted at the current rate. This may mean an increase in the rate for those that are remaining on the reservation. It is the responsibility of the travelers within the same reservation to ensure payments are being made.
Any disability requiring special attention must be reported to Pampered Journeys at the time the reservation is made. Pampered Journeys will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of travelers, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so nor is it responsible for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers.
All travelers’ passports must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the conclusion of your trip. You should apply and obtain a passport far in advance for any group travel outside the United States. Please be sure your passport arrives at least 3 months prior to travel if applying for a new one or getting a renewal.
If you have booked a flight and we are alerted to a significant schedule change by your airline before you leave the United States, we will contact you by email to advise you of this. Please ensure that you have given your contact email address to us and that you regularly check for messages before you leave. We have no control over airline schedule changes and accept no liability for costs that may arise as a result of such changes.
