In remote areas, there may be no hotels available in these categories, so we choose the best available (BA) hotels. Each hotel is rated by our quality controllers following standards set by the independent Hotel & Travel Index and by national tourist boards. Hotels are listed on itinerary pages, although it may be necessary to substitute with an alternate hotel of equivalent standard. Your travel documents will list hotel addresses with telephone and fax numbers, plus you can find more details on our website.

  46. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHAT SIZE CAN MY SUITCASE BE? HOW IS SEATING DETERMINED ON THE MOTORCOACH? WHEN CAN I PURCHASE OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS? include, but are not limited to, severe weather conditions, acts of nature, and government travel advisories. Under such circumstances, it is critical that the Globus family of brands be able to contact you immediately and reliably—including nights, weekends, and holidays—to make sure we’ve informed you of any possible changes to your travel. Due to limited motorcoach capacity, your bag should have dimensions not exceeding 76x53x28cm or 30"x21"x11" (62" linear dimensions) or weight exceeding 22 kg (50 lbs.) Carry-on bag dimensions should not exceed 30x28x14cm or 12"x11"x6". We are unable to accept a second suitcase or any luggage exceeding these limits. Some holidays may have other restrictions, which will be noted in your Travel Documents. Please note that air carriers, cruise lines, and other forms of transportation may have other restrictions and requirements, including weight, and we recommend that you contact the suppliers directly for additional information. Some airlines also charge fees for checked baggage, and these fees are not included in the holiday or airfare package price. Check with your airline directly for baggage information and regulations. Globus is not responsible for additional baggage fees imposed by air carriers. We offer daily rotation of seating, which gives everyone a variety of views. Globus offers our travellers the opportunity to pre-purchase select optional excursions via our MyAccount feature.

All travellers should consult with appropriate consulates to determine if any visas are needed. NOTE:Optional activities and excursions are subject to change and may not be available as described; please visit our website for up-to-date information, including Terms & Conditions and details regarding payment. WHAT IS THE SAFETYNET PROTECTION POLICY? WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE GLOBUS? Globus holidays are designed to offer you flexibility, choice, and a pace that best fits the way you want to travel. Globus offers MORE included features, MORE quality hotels, and MORE experience, with more than 89 years of taking travellers on unforgettable journeys. You’ll get insider attractions that you’ll merely see from the outside with other travel companies. In addition, Globus offers MORE value, with an average price less per day than our nearest competitor. The safety of our travellers and the richness of our holidays is a priority and it is what has made Globus the worldwide leader in travel and a name you can trust. To ensure your trip is worry- and hassle-free, even when booking, Globus offers two “SafetyNet” options for AU$75 per person. You have the opportunity to select either SafetyNet Transfer Protection OR SafetyNet Cancellation Protection to best suit your needs or concerns. WHY AM I ASKED TO GIVE MY PASSPORT NAME, GENDER & DATE OF BIRTH WHEN BOOKING FLIGHTS? Due to increased travel security around the world, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires airlines to collect this information in accordance with the Secure Flight Program enacted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. TSA information must exactly match the full passport name. The airline reservation must match the first and last name. If this information is not accurate, you may not be allowed to board the plane. It is important to provide this information accurately at the time of booking, as any changes to your air booking, which includes spelling, could be subject to a change fee, penalties, higher fares, new schedule, and/or cancellation. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TWIN-BEDDED ROOM & A DOUBLE ROOM? A double room is a room designed to accommodate two people, though not necessarily with two separate beds. A twin-bedded room has two separate beds of any size; this is what we usually reserve for our guests. SafetyNet Transfer Protection enables Globus passengers to amend tour bookings up to 24 hours prior to the departure date to another tour departing in the same year of travel, (once only) without any applicable cancellation charges or penalties. OR SafetyNet Cancellation Protection enables Globus passengers to cancel their tour in full, up to 30 days prior to the tour departure date, without any applicable cancellation charges or penalties. WHAT SIZE IS A TRIPLE ROOM? WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE COSMOS? Since inventing the budget holiday over 50 years ago, Cosmos has offered savvy, value-minded travellers the most affordable travel packages to the world’s most captivating places. With Cosmos, you’ll enjoy the benefits, security, and convenience of escorted travel, an expert Tour Director, a greater choice of activities and excursions, and longer stays in key cities so that you can truly immerse yourself in the local culture. A triple room is the same size as a twin bedded room. It will have beds to accommodate three people, but we cannot guarantee there will be more than two beds. If there are only two beds, a rollaway may be requested but is not guaranteed. This additional coverage costs only AU$75 per person, per booking (not per tour), and must be paid at the time of the tour deposit. Please refer to Globus’ website Globus.com.au under “Bookings & Services” for full details and conditions. WHY IS MY CONTACT INFORMATION COLLECTED WHEN I BOOK? There may be times when unforeseen events beyond our control impact travel schedules and potentially disrupt cruises, tours, or packages. These 90 91 GLOBUS.COM.AU

SAFETYNET PROTECTION POLICY Globus is dedicated to ensuring your trip is worry and hassle free, even when booking. Should you be uncertain what your commitments will be leading up to your departure, Globus offer a SafetyNet Protection policy*, for $75 per person (payable at time of deposit). *CONDITIONS OF THE SAFETYNET PROTECTION POLICY The $75 SafetyNet Protection must be paid at the time of the tour deposit and is payable per person per booking (not per tour) and is non-refundable. The SafetyNet Transfer Protection and SafetyNet Cancellation Protection applies to the tour, associated pre/post accommodation and transfers booked directly with Globus. The SafetyNet Protection does not apply to any products purchased via another wholesale or retail supplier. The SafetyNet Protection does not apply to any service charge or cancellation fee charged to you by your Travel Agent. The SafetyNet Transfer Protection* enables Globus passengers to amend their tour up to 24 hours prior to the tour departure date to another tour departing in 2017, (once only) without any applicable cancellation charges or penalties. OR you can utilise The SafetyNet Cancellation Protection* which enables Globus passengers to cancel their tour in full – up to 30 days prior to the tour departure date in 2017, without any applicable cancellation charges or penalties. Please see travel documents for full details regarding set pick-up times at designated airport locations. For very early departures, please note that breakfast cannot be included. PRE PAY YOUR GRATUITIES For all 2017 departures we offer the option to pre pay your gratuities. This option gives you a greater capacity to manage your holiday budget which means you will no longer need to reach into your pocket at the conclusion of your tour to pay your Tour Director and driver for their service. Please note that pre-paid gratuities cover only the land portion operated by Globus of the tour itinerary. Where we source other leading operators for cruising, rail or local guided elements of your holiday, the option to pre-pay your gratuities is not available. Passengers can only use “one” of the two SafetyNet Protection Policies; choose either the SafetyNet Transfer Protection, or the SafetyNet Cancellation Protection, not both. For example: if a passenger uses the SafetyNet Transfer Protection to amend their 2017 tour (say 48 hours prior to the original tours departure date) to a later 2017 Globus tour departure date, they then cannot use the SafetyNet Cancellation Protection to cancel their Globus tour in full without incurring the applicable cancellation charges or penalties – as per the 2017 Globus brochure terms and conditions. 92 93 93 GLOBUS.COM.AU

A fee of $30 per transaction will be charged for any alteration or revision made to a reservation after the original reservation is made. Any revision to an air travel reservation may result in the loss of confirmed airline reservations or increased airfare which will be payable by you. Additional airline and hotel charges may also apply and may be up to 100% of the full price. A change of traveller name, holiday date, or itinerary after the final payment date will be treated as a full cancellation and new reservation; holiday cancellation fees (as above) apply. AIR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS 30. The Company is not responsible if an airline cancels, reschedules, varies or delays a flight for any reason. If you purchased an airfare through The Company, The Company will try and assist in making new arrangements providing you have not already checked in with your airline for your first flight segment. After check-in, you must work with the airline directly to reach your destination or to make any alternate arrangements including amendments to return services. Airline fees often apply for modifications to air schedules not related to airline imposed flight cancellations, reschedules, variations or delays. These fees will be payable to the airline directly on request. If you miss your departure flight or connection, it is your responsibility to work with the airline on which you are ticketed to reach your destination. No refunds will be provided by The Company for portions of trips missed due to cancelled, rescheduled, varied or delayed flights after airport check-in, nor is The Company responsible for any additional expenses you may incur prior to joining your trip if you miss your departure flight or flight connection. LANGUAGE 31. All Tour Directors, Local Hosts, Local Guides, and ships’ crews speak English, and all holiday commentary is conducted in English only. For maximum enjoyment and understanding, you should be able to read and speak English. PARTICIPATION 32. For the benefit of everyone on your holiday, The Company reserves the right to accept or reject any traveller and to remove any traveller whose conduct is deemed incompatible with the interests of the other travellers. The Company will not refund or cover any cost or expenses incurred for termination of holiday arrangements due to unacceptable behaviour. TRAVELLERS WHO NEED SPECIAL ASSISTANCE ON TOURS AND/OR CRUISES 33. You must report to The Company at the time of reservation any disability requiring special attention while on tour or on a cruise. The Company will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled travellers, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so; nor is The Company responsible for any denial of services by air carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers. The Company cannot provide individual assistance to a holiday participant for walking, dining, getting on and off motor coaches, cruise ships and other vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified and physically able companion must accompany travellers who need such assistance and must assume full responsibility for their well-being. 34. Some locations and sightseeing activities may not accommodate wheelchairs and may require extensive standing, sitting or walking. The Company is not responsible for any missed activities due to a traveller’s inability to participate with the group. Most transportation services, including the touring motor coaches and cruise ships, are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. 35. Some cruise vessels do not have elevators. Travellers requiring ship elevators should inquire before making reservations. Most doors to cabins, staterooms and restrooms are not wide enough to allow access by standard wheelchairs, and bathrooms and other doorways may be fitted with coamings. For safety reasons, travellers in wheelchairs cannot be carried on ramps in ports where the ship is at anchor. Motorised scooters are not typically suitable on international tours or cruises. YOUNG TRAVELLERS 36. Travellers under 18 years old on the scheduled departure date must be accompanied by an adult and share the adult’s accommodation for the duration of the holiday. 37. The following age restrictions apply to land tours and cruises: a. Globus escorted holidays: children aged 8 years and over are eligible to travel. Travellers aged 8-17 receive a 10% discount on the base land holiday price, not including internal air travel. b. Galápagos small ship cruises: children aged 8 years and over are eligible to travel. 38. Young traveller discounts are based on the age of the traveller at the scheduled departure date. 39. Due to heightened security, many countries have adopted practices to prevent international abductions of children. If a person under the age of 18 years will be travelling with an adult other than his/her parents, or with only one parent, it is recommended that a notarised letter be written by the parents, or non-travelling parent, granting authorisation to travel, including the dates of travel. We suggest that you also contact the appropriate consulate and airlines because they may have additional requirements or recommendations. SMOKING 40. Smoking, including the use of e-cigarettes, is not allowed on transportation that is exclusively provided by Globus. MOTORCOACHES 41. Globus follows a mandatory, daily seat rotation on motorcoaches. For the enjoyment of all passengers, you must adhere to the rules of the Tour Director regarding sear rotation. Alcohol consumption is not allowed on board Globus motorcoaches. WIFI 42. For tours where WiFi is available on the motorcoach, WiFi connectivity is provided by an independent third party with separate terms and conditions of usage and acceptance thereof. These can be found online or will be made available upon request. PRICE POLICY 43. All holiday prices are based on rates (including foreign exchange rates) known at the time of publication, are expected to be in effect at the time of departure and do not include airfare except where specified. Prices are subject to increase without notice if such rates change prior to departure. Holiday prices are per person, based on double occupancy. Single room supplements are listed where applicable. Triple room reductions for land holidays are also listed, but are not available on cruises. Please call us for more information on rates. Not all accommodation types are available on all holidays. 44. Prices will be confirmed at the time of reservation. Prices are subject to increase without notice, subject to the guarantees set forth below. 45. Once The Company has received your full deposit for any holiday departing 01 January 2017 to 31 December 2017, that price (excluding air travel) is guaranteed, and any subsequent land/cruise cost increases are at The Company’s expense, not including surcharges, energy cost increases, air travel whilst on tour and/or any government tax increases. Air travel tickets booked via The Company are guaranteed once full payment has been received. This guarantee does not include any government/airport tax increases and currency fluctuations. 46. 2018 departures are subject to price and itinerary modifications. Full details will be available in June 2017. Travellers have the right to cancel their reservation without penalty within 7 days of notification in the event of a price increase for departures in 2018. VISAS & PASSPORTS 47. You are responsible for obtaining and paying for all visas and entry documents, for meeting all health and other requirements, and for any documents required by the laws, regulations, orders, and/ or requirements of the countries you will visit. The Company is not responsible for providing specific visa and passport information or documentation, and The Company cannot accept liability for any traveller refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure of the traveller to carry correct documentation. All travellers travelling internationally are required to have a passport. Most countries require that the passport be valid for at least six (6) months beyond the conclusion of the trip. It is recommended you have a minimum of three blank pages in your passport when travelling, as many countries require blank pages. Multiple-entry visas are required for some holidays. It is your responsibility to verify all visa and passport requirements. The process of obtaining a visa and/or passport can take up to three months or more. ITINERARY VARIATIONS 48. The accommodation listed in our websites/brochures is intended to be used on all departures. However, if a change becomes necessary for any reason, substitute accommodation will be equivalent in standard to that shown. No refunds are provided for accommodation variations and full cancellation penalties as noted above apply. 49. Every effort is made to reserve only twin-bedded rooms. Occasionally, some hotels will only provide double-bedded rooms. These rooms will be allocated to couples where possible. Room and bed preferences may be requested, but are not guaranteed. Please note that check-in times vary worldwide and The Company cannot control or guarantee check-in times. Triple-rooms are the same size as twin-bedded rooms and are at the discretion of individual hotels. Triple rooms will have beds to accomodate three people, but three separate beds cannot be guaranteed. The additional bed, if available, is often a roll-away bed put in for the night. Payment for a single supplement ensures your own room, not necessarily a twin-bedded room. On cruises, staterooms are subject to change and are finalised upon embarkation. 50. In exceptional cases where private bath or single rooms as reserved by us are not available, refunds will be made by the Cruise Director, Tour Director, or Local Host. Claims for such refunds will not be accepted after the holiday has been completed. BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE 51. Porterage for one suitcase per person travelling is included in the holiday price. Airport and train station porterage is not included. Your single bag should not exceed the dimensions of 76x53x28cm (30”x21”x11”) and weight of 22kg (50lbs). We are unable to accept a second suitcase or any luggage exceeding these limits. Some holidays have more restrictive regulations than these listed above. Please refer to your Travel Documents for applicable regulations. 52. Size and weight limitations for carry-on and checked baggage vary from airline to airline and even according to destination, and are becoming more restrictive. Most airlines charge fees for checked baggage and these fees are not included in the airfare or the holiday package price. Please check with your airline(s) directly for baggage information, regulations and fees. The Company is not responsible for additional fees imposed by air carriers for baggage. Regulations within most airports require that travellers handle their own luggage through customs. 53. Carry-on baggage is limited to one bag per person travelling and must not exceed the dimensions of 30x28x14cm (12”x11”x6”). For safety reasons, wheeled carry-on bags are not suitable and will not be permitted as hand luggage on motorcoaches and mini-buses. Carry- on bags must be small enough to store in overhead bins or under the seat in front of you on motorcoaches and other transportation. 54. The Company will not accept responsibility for loss of or damage to baggage or any of the traveller’s belongings throughout the duration of the holiday. The Company recommends that you ensure loss of or damage to baggage is included in your comprehensive travel insurance. NOT INCLUDED IN THE HOLIDAY PRICE 55. Airfares & airport taxes and fees (unless specified); passports; visas; vaccinations; tips to your Cruise/Tour Director, Tour Driver (unless pre-paid, see below), local city guides and other ship personnel; gratuities on ferries, trains and cruise ships; laundry; telephone; mini-bar; beverages and food not on the contracted Globus or Avalon menu (these extra items will be billed to you before leaving the hotel, ship or restaurant); optional excursions; porterage at airports and train stations; SafetyNet Protection; insurance of any kind; baggage fees; and all other items of personal nature.

These fees will be collected by the local government and are payable by the traveller at time of travel. Your confirmation booking information will contain information about these fees. If you would like more information prior to booking, please contact your Travel Consultant. 56. If you have prepaid your gratuities to your Tour Director and Driver, this will be detailed within your Tour/Cruise Member Certificate and vouchers will be included within your Tour Documentation. Prepaid gratuities cover only the land portion operated by The Company of the tour itinerary.

Maps shown on the holiday pages are current at the time of printing and may not reflect the actual holiday routing should the itinerary change. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES 64. Carriers, accommodation, and other suppliers (“the Suppliers”) (including but not limited to trains, cruises, ferries, motor coaches, hotels, and restaurants) providing optional activities and excursions (“the Services”) available for booking are not run, supervised, or controlled in any way by The Company. These Services are provided by local operators or other third parties that are entirely independent of The Company, which has no control and has no right of control over the operations of these independent contractors. Such Services do not form any part of the product or services sold by The Company, even where The Company suggests particular operators/other third parties and/or assists in booking such Services. 65. Your contract for the Services will be with the Supplier and will be subject to its Terms and Conditions, which may contain exclusions or limitations of liability. The Company has no liability for any such activity or excursion or for any act(s) or omission(s) of the Supplier or for any of its employees or agents or any other person(s) connected with the Service. Any advice or assistance on or with the Service provided by any local representative does not mean or imply that the Service is sold, supervised, or controlled by The Company or that any such advice or assistance is given on behalf of The Company. Travellers are asked to check with the Supplier and the applicable Terms and Conditions before booking. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR CRUISE ITINERARY CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS 66. In the event of water level problems on stretches of any river, or of technical problems of any nature, it may be necessary to operate all or part of the itinerary by motor coach or to alter the program. The Company reserves the right to change the itinerary whenever conditions, in the opinion of the Master of the Ship, or local waterways authorities/regulations, render it advisable or necessary. The Company will not be responsible for any loss or expense caused by reason of such changes. 67. In the event of charters of the vessels, strikes, lockouts, riots or stoppage of labour for whatever cause or for any other reason whatsoever, The Company may at any time cancel, advance or postpone any scheduled sailing and may, but is not obliged to, substitute another vessel and shall not be liable for any loss whatsoever to tour/cruise participants by reason of any such cancellation, advancement or postponement. 68. The Company reserves the right to cancel, advance or postpone any scheduled tour and/or sailing date in accordance with operational requirements or circumstances beyond its control and may, but is not obliged to, substitute another vessel and shall not be liable for any loss whatsoever to holiday participants by reason of any such cancellation, advancement or postponement. In the event of cancellation by The Company, tour/cruise participants’ only right of recourse shall be to a refund of monies paid to The Company in connection with such tour/ cruise. RESPONSIBILITY AND EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY: 69. Subject to clauses 64 to 68 above, The Company is responsible for providing the services described in this brochure, including arranging transportation, sightseeing, and accommodation as described. All references to The Company include its agents and employees. 70. These tours include the services of operators other than The Company, for example accommodation providers, airlines, other carriers, and optional tour operators (“the Suppliers”). In making your travel arrangements The Company acts only as an agent for the Suppliers who are independent contractors and are not agents, employees, or servants of, or in joint venture with, The Company or its affiliates. All certificates and other travel documents for services issued by The Company are subject to the terms and conditions specified by the Supplier, which are available on request, and to the laws of the countries in which the services are supplied. While The Company takes all reasonable care in selecting the Suppliers, it does not accept responsibility for any act or omission of the Suppliers. 71. The international carriage of passengers is subject to international conventions and treaties. These international conventions and treaties limit and, in some events, exclude the carrier’s liability to travellers. Where any claim or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury) concerns or involves any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, inland waterways, rail, or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, The Company’s maximum liability is the maximum which would be payable by the carrier or the hotel keeper concerned under the applicable international convention or treaty applicable to the travel arrangements or hotel stay. International conventions and treaties that may apply include: the Montreal Convention (1999), the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules Relating to International Carriage by Air, signed at Warsaw, 12 October 1929 (the Warsaw Convention), the Warsaw Convention as amended at The Hague on 28 September 1955 and the Warsaw Convention as amended at The Hague and by Additional Protocol No. 1, 2 or 4 of Montreal (1975) and the EU Regulation on Air Carrier Liability for air carriers with an operating license granted by an EU country, in relation to air travel; the Berne Convention for rail travel; Athens Convention 1974 for carriage by sea; the Geneva Convention for carriage by road and the Paris Convention 1962 for hotels. 72. Booking and payment for a tour shall constitute agreement and acceptance by the passenger of these terms and conditions which cannot be varied except in writing by an officer of the Company. 73. After departure, if the services included in the holiday cannot be supplied, or there are changes in an itinerary for reasons beyond the control of The Company, The Company will arrange for the provision of comparable services wherever possible. Any resulting additional expense will be payable by travellers and any resulting savings will be refunded by The Company to travellers. 74. The Company reserves the right to accept or reject any person as a traveller, to expel any traveller from the holiday, to make changes in the itinerary whenever The Company deems it necessary for the comfort, convenience, or safety of travellers, and to cancel a holiday at any time in accordance with operational requirements or circumstances beyond its control. 75. Notwithstanding anything contained in these conditions, The Company shall continue to be subject to any guarantees provided by the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and the Australian Consumer Law (the Act) if and to the extent that the Act is applicable to these conditions and prevents the exclusion, restriction and modification of such guarantees. 76. The Company excludes all liability including liability for any loss, damage, costs and expenses whatsoever (including personal injury, death, and property loss) that may arise in connection with or arising out of your holiday and liability under implied conditions, and warranties and guarantees except any guarantees, the exclusion of which would cause this Clause to be void, such guarantees being referred to in these conditions as “non-excludable guarantees”. 77. The Company limits its liability to you for breach of any non-excludable guarantees to the supplying of the service again or the payment of the cost of having the service supplied again, as determined by The Company. 78. You agree that neither the Company nor its affiliates shall be liable for any damage, loss (including personal injury, death, and property loss) or expense occasioned by any act or omission of any Supplier providing services, or of any insurer or insurance administrator, or of any other person. 79. Legal proceedings against the Company may be instituted only in a court within the State of New South Wales, and any claim involved in such proceedings shall be decided in accordance with the laws of the State of New South Wales. Neither the Company nor any affiliate shall in any case be liable for other than compensatory damages, and you hereby waive any right to punitive or aggravated damages.

The Company reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any holiday departure in accordance with operational requirements or circumstances beyond its control. If a holiday is cancelled prior to the scheduled departure date, The Company’s only responsibility will be to refund the amount received for the reservation. Wherever possible, The Company will offer the same holiday with a different departure date, or an alternative similar holiday. If there is a difference in cost, it will be your expense. For air-inclusive holidays, The Company will try to confirm air schedules for the selected new dates, subject to availability. The Company is not responsible for any additional costs or fees relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of air tickets or other travel arrangements not made through The Company. INSURANCE 25. The above cancellation charges will be applied in all cases. The Company strongly recommends you take out comprehensive travel insurance, including coverage for medical expenses, loss of luggage, and land content and airfare charges that may arise, including due to cancellation. For more details about travel insurance, see your Travel Agent or call us on 1300 230 234. REVISION FEES 26. A fee of $30 per transaction will be charged for any alteration or revision made to a reservation after the deposit is made. Any revision to an air travel reservation may result in the loss of confirmed airline reservations or increased airfare which will be payable by you. Additional airline and hotel charges may also apply and may be up to 100% of the full price. A change of traveller name, holiday date, or itinerary after the final payment date will be treated as a full cancellation and new reservation; holiday cancellation fees (as above) apply. AIR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS 27. The Company is not responsible if an airline cancels, reschedules, varies or delays a flight for any reason. If you purchased an airfare through The Company, The Company will try and assist in making new arrangements providing you have not already checked in with your airline for your first flight segment. After check-in, you must work with the airline directly to reach your destination or to make any alternate arrangements including amendments to return services. Airline fees often apply for modifications to air schedules not related to airline imposed flight cancellations, reschedules, variations or delays. These fees will be payable to the airline directly on request. If you miss your departure flight or connection, it is your responsibility to work with the airline on which you are ticketed to reach your destination. No refunds will be provided by The Company for portions of trips missed due to cancelled, rescheduled, varied or delayed flights after airport check-in, nor is The Company responsible for any additional expenses you may incur prior to joining your trip if you miss your departure flight or flight connection. PARTICIPATION 28. For the benefit of everyone on your holiday, The Company reserves the right to accept or reject any traveller and to remove any traveller whose conduct is deemed incompatible with the interests of the other travellers. The Company will not refund or cover any cost or expenses incurred for termination of holiday arrangements due to unacceptable behaviour. All Tour Directors, Local Hosts, Local Guides, and ship crew speak English and all vacation commentary is conducted in English. For maximum enjoyment and understanding, you should be able to read and speak English. TRAVELLERS WHO NEED SPECIAL ASSISTANCE ON TOURS AND/ OR CRUISES 29. You must report to The Company at the time of reservation any disability requiring special attention while on tour or on a cruise. The Company will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled travellers, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so; nor is The Company responsible for any denial of services by air carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers. The Company cannot provide individual assistance to a holiday participant for walking, dining, getting on and off motor coaches, cruise ships and other vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified and physically able companion must accompany travellers who need such assistance and must assume full responsibility for their well-being. 30. Some locations and sightseeing activities may not accommodate wheelchairs and may require extensive standing, sitting or walking. The Company is not responsible for any missed activities due to a traveller’s inability to participate with the group. Most transportation services, including the touring motor coaches and cruise ships, are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. YOUNG TRAVELLERS 31. Travellers under 18 years old on the scheduled departure date must be accompanied by an adult and share the adult’s accommodation for the duration of the holiday. Interconnecting rooms are not guaranteed. On vacations that include a Galapagos cruise there is no discount for young travellers. 32. The following age restrictions apply to Cosmos escorted holidays: Children aged 8 years and over are eligible to travel. Travellers aged 8-17 receive a 10% discount on the base land holiday price, not including internal air travel. 33. Young traveller discounts are based on the age of the traveller at the scheduled departure date. 34. Due to heightened security, many countries have adopted practices to prevent international abductions of children. If a person under the age of 18 years will be travelling with an adult other than his/her parents, or with only one parent, it is recommended that a notarised letter be written by the parents, or non-travelling parent, granting authorisation to travel, including the dates of travel. We suggest that you also contact the appropriate consulate and airlines because they may have additional requirements or recommendations. SMOKING 35. Smoking, including e-cigarettes, is not allowed on transportation that is exclusively provided by The Company. On cruise ships, smoking is restricted to certain areas of the vessel.
