TERMS AND CONDITIONS 

Immersive Italy Tours, LLC

CONSUMER AGREEMENT

These terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) describe what you are legally entitled to expect from us when you purchase travel related services through us, in addition to your obligations as a customer. The terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Immersive Italy Tours, LLC. The term “you” refers to the customer visiting our website, booking a reservation through us or otherwise using our services.

1. OUR AGREEMENT WITH YOU

PRODUCTS AND SUPPLIERS

We sell a variety of travel related products from different Suppliers and service providers (“Suppliers”). Each Supplier has its own terms and conditions that are applicable to your particular arrangements in addition to our general terms and conditions, and you should make sure you understand them.
Immersive Italy Tours, LLC is acting 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.). We are not a co-vendor of such products and services. You will be entering into a separate contract with such Suppliers in connection with such products and services.
All airlines’ tickets are subject to supplemental price increases that may be imposed after the date of purchase. Post-purchase price increases may be applied due to additional costs imposed by a supplier or government. You may be charged additional sums by Immersive Italy Tours, LLC to offset increased fees, fuel surcharges, taxes, and fluctuations in foreign exchange markets or any combination thereof.
Acceptance of these terms and conditions hereby consent you to any post-purchase price increases and authorize Immersive Italy Tours, LLC to charge my credit card for such additional amounts.

DEPOSITS AND PAYMENTS

Any deposits from you are non-refundable. Payment of a deposit enables us to hold a reservation for you but does not guarantee the price. The price can only be guaranteed once we receive full payment and other travel documents have been issued, subject to any terms and conditions of the Supplier. We will advise you of the date that full payment is required. Upon your provision of your payment information, you are authorizing us to make the payment arrangements with the corresponding Suppliers.
We reserve the right to refuse personal checks as a method of payment. After full payment, the conditions of the contract with your Supplier may permit them to increase the cost of your arrangements.
As we are acting as your Booking Agent, we will pass on any such increase to you as we become aware of such increase. Subsequently, you are not guaranteed a lower price if at any time prior to your travel the price decreases. If we have arranged a package, changes in transportation costs including the cost of fuel, taxes, fees and exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have paid in full.

COMMUNICATING WITH YOU

We will make every reasonable effort to communicate with you via the phone numbers, email addresses, mailing addresses, or other means as provided.

AGENCY PLANNED TOURS (IF APPLICABLE)

From time to time, Immersive Italy Tours LLC, will offer pre-planned itineraries available for purchase to travelers. These pre-planned tours will differ from tours contracted by individual travelers. These pre planned itineraries have been expertly designed for the destination and will include but is not limited to: hotel or cruise accommodations, preplanned activities, some meals, and include taxes and fees.
You agree and acknowledge that any prices quoted or advertised are subject to change and that the Agency can not guarantee continued availability of specific rooms/cabins, air schedules, or pricing. The Agency will not be responsible or obligated to honor any erroneous, outdated, or unavailable rooms, air schedules, or pricing.
You agree and acknowledge that payment for individual rooms is the sole responsibility of individual guests. The required non refundable deposit to hold an individual room depends upon the particular planned tour. No room will be held until the required deposit is submitted to the Agency.
The traveler will be subject to a payment and cancellation schedule which will be conspicuously posted on the website or flyer promoting the planned tour.
If the individual guests do not make final payments on time, their individual travel arrangements will be canceled and the individual guest will forfeit any payments made earlier and the guest will be denied access to the booked travel services, subject to the application of local laws in the jurisdiction cited below in this agreement. In such an event, we will not be responsible in any way for lost deposits, incurred expenses or fees, or other lost monies.
Suppliers may impose supplemental price increases after we book travel plans (e.g., additional governmental taxes and fees, fuel surcharges, currency market fluctuations). Once the supplier contacts the Company, we will notify you and guests that have booked travel arrangements. All booked guests are responsible for paying these post-booking price changes. Any additional monies due will be added to the final payment amount due subject to applicable local laws.

CONTRACTED GROUP BOOKINGS (IF APPLICABLE)

After you have approved the proposed travel itinerary, we will complete Exhibit A which will be retained in your travel and will be incorporated as a part of this agreement and will be signed and dated by both parties and will be deemed to be a part of the original agreement.
The exhibit will include the name of the resort, hotel(s), or ship, your travel dates, the number of rooms/cabins, the categories available for each room/cabin, the occupancy rate (single/double/triple/quad), deposit deadlines, and final payment deadlines. The total number of nights times the total number of rooms will be deemed the “room block”.
Payment for the room block is the sole responsibility of the leader. Individual payments made by guests will be credited towards the room block. Any refunds made to individual guests will be deducted from the room block.
You agree to make required payments for your Room Block on time and in full. If you do not make the required deposit, we will not make any reservations. If you do not make the final payment on time, your travel arrangements will be canceled, you will forfeit any payments made earlier, and you will be denied access to the booked travel services, subject to the application of local laws of New York.

Any additional monies due will be added to the final payment amount due subject to applicable local laws.
Any desired changes to your Room Block must be requested in writing by all parties signing this agreement. Any changes (whether due to additional persons, additional rooms, date changes, etc.) may result in a change in the rate per person and the overall cost of the trip. Additions and changes will be based on availability. You agree to pay any price increase due to such a change (which will not be cause for canceling this agreement).
To cancel the entire Room Block, all parties signing this agreement must notify us in writing. If we do not receive this written notice and any applicable cancellation penalties are not paid, the group will not be considered canceled and may be subject to additional penalties until all required paperwork is received in its entirety.
The cancellation charge will be the sum of the penalties per person (based on the number of rooms in the Room Block), depending on when we actually receive your written cancellation notice.
No exceptions to our cancellation fees can be made for any reason, including illness, inability to travel, government travel warnings, or fear of terrorism.
If you are a “no show” for any reason (including flight cancellations or missed connections), we will consider the entire Room Block canceled and we will charge the cancellation fees set forth in Exhibit A. If other guests arrive, their rooms/cabins will be subject to availability at then-current rates.
Once you have canceled the entire Room Block, you can no longer utilize the room reduction policy. The cancellation penalty will apply only to the total number of rooms held as of the cancellation.

TRAVEL CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS

Please note that all reservation changes are subject to availability and the terms and conditions of the product purchased. Certain changes to your travel plan, excluding full cancellation, will be allowable, if made within seven (7) days of the departure date.
Changes to name details are not allowed by many airlines and other Suppliers. While we will make every possible attempt to make such a change if necessary, please bear in mind that most airlines and Suppliers treat a name change as a cancellation, to which standard conditions and charges would apply.
We will ensure that you are promptly notified of any significant changes once we become aware of such change if there is time before your departure, but we accept no liability for any changes or costs incurred that may result.
Subject to the supplier’s terms and conditions, you will then have the choice of accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements if one is made available by the Supplier, or canceling your booked arrangements.
If you arrive at an airline ticket or passenger check-in counter with your confirmed ticket and find that the airline shows no reservation for you – do not leave the counter. Check your ticket. If the status box shows “OK” for the flight in question, the airline policies typically require them to accommodate you on that flight, or if that is not possible, they must either find you a substitute flight or pay you denied boarding compensation. If necessary ask to speak to a supervisor.
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 which may arise as a result of such changes.
After you have left the US, it is your responsibility to check with the airline that any onward flights you have confirmed are operating as booked. We strongly recommend that you contact your airline at least 72 hours before the scheduled departure of each flight to do this. Please note that for some airlines it is mandatory to confirm with them your intention to fly.
Flights must be taken in the sequence they appear on your ticket or e-ticket confirmation. If you plan not to take a flight as it is booked, please contact the airline as far in advance as possible to discuss your options. If you do not check in on time for a confirmed reservation, the airline may register you as a ‘no-show’, which could result in extra charges and/or your whole flight itinerary being canceled and/or render your ticket void.
Where a cancellation requested by you to your travel arrangements is permitted and possible, our standard refund rates will apply in addition to any additional Supplier charges.
The Standard Refund Rates are as follows:
For full cancellations requested 45 or more days before the departure date you will be given the option to reschedule their booking within 18 months of the cancellation date. If you do not wish to reschedule within 18 months, then a full refund will be issued. You may reschedule no more than two (2) times; upon the third (3rd) cancellation a refund will be issued.
Options to reschedule are subject to limitation during the “Peak Season”: (April 1 – October 30).
For full cancellations requested 15 to 44 days before the departure date a 50 percent refund will be issued.
For full cancellations less than 15 days before the departure date no refund will be offered.
If you cancel your arrangements, you will be entitled to a refund based on the supplier refund policies. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim any non-refundable funds through your insurer.
