Caribbean
he islands of the Caribbean
are as magical as your imagination,
and just as close. Where else but in
a dream would you find traces of
Europe amidst whitewashed houses
and pastel buildings, palm trees
and bright blue waters?
With more than 30 islands to choose
from, your Caribbean dream is truly
one of your own design. A tropical
siren’s song is beckoning you – whether it be the
festive sound of steel drums and a nightclub beat, or
the gentle crash of the waves. Lift your eyes up to the
top of lush island volcanoes and rainforests, or take
in the sights of colorful coral reefs below sea level.
Take a deep breath and smell the clean sea air, or
enjoy the scent of your gourmet meal just before
it hits your tongue.
As you peer through the Caribbean’s looking glass,
your senses will discover a wonderland of romance,
adventure, luxury and calm.

FUN FACT: Because of Mexico’s great biodiversity, it is home to 1,060 of the world’s 8,500 known bird
species. Birds have always been ever-present in Mexico’s culture, from Aztec bird-gods, to folk art,
to the eagle on the modern Mexican flag.
Mexico
f you’re looking for a
healthy dose of leisure, you
won’t find a better source than
an all-inclusive resort south
of the border. Mexico offers so
many delightful surprises for
travelers, and all-inclusives
gift wrap them for you.
Mexico’s varied landscape
includes beaches, mountains,
rainforests, modern cities
and ruins of ancient empires –
endless opportunity for
relaxation, recreation
and exploration.
First and foremost, Mexico enjoys a well-deserved reputation for having some of the best beaches in the world,
awash in swimming, surfing, snorkeling and sailing. Cancun is where modern oceanfront resorts lie in the shadow
of nearby Mayan ruins. Puerto Vallarta’s a tropical playground with charming waterfront towns as a backdrop.
Snorkelers flock to the underwater world of Cozumel, where friendly dolphins swim among the world-famous
coral reefs. Avid fishermen enjoy the challenge of fishing for marlin and sailfish off of Los Cabos.
Fortunately, Mexico’s possibilities don’t end at the water’s edge. Those so inclined soon learn that stories about
Mexico’s great party scene are not exaggerated. The same holds true for the many year-round cultural festivals.
Whether you take on a lush rainforest, a pair of water skis or a set of golf clubs, you’ll find your sense of adventure
in Mexico. Just remember to expect the unexpected.

This agreement contains the terms and conditions by which Travel Impressions,
Ltd., 465 Smith Street, Farmingdale, NY 11735 (“Operator”), in consideration
for a participant’s payment, agrees to provide these travel tours. All products
and services depicted in this brochure are subject to change without notice.
READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE SENDING ANY MONEY.
RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENT: Operator of this program accepts
payment by check or AMERICAN EXPRESS, VISA, MASTERCARD or DISCOVER.
Make all checks payable to your travel agent, who must in turn make its
check payable to Travel Impressions, Ltd. If payment is made by credit card, a
signed, fully completed universal charge form (“UCC”) for full payment must
be received to secure reservations maintained at the travel agency. Travel
Impressions reserves the right to receive a copy of the signed universal charge
form if necessary. Any other person or entity (including a travel agent) who
receives monies from participants does so strictly as an agent of participants.
Tender of payment to Travel Impressions or travel agent constitutes acceptance
of these terms and conditions.
The following payment schedule applies unless airline-ticketing
restrictions require accelerated payment:
Days prior to departure Amount due
46 or more days Deposit of $150 per person within 3 days of
reservation plus full insurance payment
(published air should be included in deposit
when applicable); final payment due at 45 days
prior to departure
45-32 days Full payment in 3 days
31-15 days Full payment in 1 day
14 days or less Full Payment same day
Online reservations require payment in full at the time of booking. All
reservations made 14 days or less prior to departure will be charged a $25.00
Special Handling Fee to cover costs associated with expedited processing of
the booking. All payments not timely received will be charged a $10.00 Late
Payment Fee. After deposit, all revisions are subject to a $25.00 per booking
fee. Once we have received a deposit on your reservation, we reserve the right
to ticket in order to protect the fare and all penalties will apply.
Airfares quoted as published are not guaranteed until ticketed. Ticketing
requirements vary depending on air carrier.
RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY: Operator arranges all of the services
and accommodations offered in connection with these trips. Operator does not
own or operate, nor is it an agent for any of the suppliers which will provide
goods and services for the trip or for any option which may be available in
connection with the trip (including optional side trips, car rentals, etc.) and
Operator has not priced the trip or options to allow Operator to guarantee
against failure of any such suppliers. Accordingly, participant(s) agree to seek
remedies directly with the supplier and not to hold Operator, its parent,
subsidiaries, affiliates and representatives (collectively “Operator Parties”)
liable, in the absence of its or their negligence, for any loss, injury, delay,
expense or damage which results directly or indirectly from any action or
omission, whether negligent, criminal or otherwise, of any entity providing
goods or services for the trip or any available option (e.g., the quality of
services, cleanliness of a hotel, hotel overbooking, cancellation of services,
cessation of operations,
accidents, failure of equipment, changes in fares, itineraries or schedules or
any flight delay). Participant(s) also agree not to hold the Operator Parties
liable for circumstances beyond its or their control (e.g., acts of God, fires,
earthquakes, floods, climatic aberrations, acts of governmental authorities,
civil unrest, strikes, riots, theft, disease, accidents or failures related to the
public internet, telecommunications lines or facilities, or third party technology
systems, piracy and terrorism, or any other cause beyond the control of the
Operator Parties.
Participant(s) acknowledge that the Operator Parties have not made any
representations or promises with respect to the tour described herein except as
expressly set forth in the Operator’s literature, unless such agreement is in
writing and signed by an officer of Operator. At any time, the Operator may
decline, for any reason, any person as a participant on a trip (or option)
whereupon the Operator’s only obligation shall be to refund such person that
portion of payment allocable to the unused services.
CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY: The right to a refund if a
participant changes plans is limited. All requests for refunds after a trip must
be submitted (with return receipt requested) in writing through the booking
agent to the Operator within 14 days after completion of the trip. Operator will
remit any refund to the participant(s) within 14 days after receipt of the
cancellation request. Failure to submit your written request within 14 days
could limit Operator’s ability to resolve your request with the Supplier. If your
notice is received, your liquidated damages (per person) will be: Once payment
is received - $50.00 per person plus any supplier fees. For holiday programs
and certain travel periods – higher penalties apply.
During selected holidays, special event dates and peak travel periods,
such as Christmas/New Year’s, winter school break and Easter, your penalties
may be higher and still subject to the supplier fees. All appropriate receipts and
documentation must accompany the refund request. No refund will be made for
features the participant opts not to use. “No show” penalties could be up to
100% of the airfare and 50% of the hotel/land.
The rights and remedies made available herein are in addition to any
others available under applicable law. However, Operator offers refunds under
this agreement with the express understanding that endorsement of a refund by
participant(s) constitutes a waiver of any such additional rights and remedies.
FORUM FOR DISPUTES: Participant and Operator agree to resolve any
dispute in a court of competent jurisdiction in New York State.
DOCUMENTS: Documents will be mailed once full payment is received.
Document reissue fee is $25.00 per booking.
CHECK-IN PROCEDURE: Failure to check in at least 2 hours prior to
departure for domestic flights and 3 hours prior for international flights may
result in denied boarding and no refund will be granted.
INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS ONLY: The operation of these flights is subject
to the foreign government involved granting landing rights for the flights. If the
direct air carrier cannot obtain these rights, the flights will be cancelled and full
refunds will be made to all participants.
PACKAGE PRICE: Includes only items specifically stated in Operator’s
current literature, the contents of which are specifically made a part hereof.
Certain secondary features of a package (e.g., cocktail party, free sports, etc.)
are based on supplier policy and may be changed, added or deleted after
printing of literature. Operator has the right to substitute services or
accommodations in similar categories for items listed in the literature. PLEASE
NOTE: Operator reserves the right to re-invoice participant(s) in case of an
error made in computing tour price, or a change in tax, hotel rate or service
fee is imposed by the hotel or airline. Air-inclusive packages do not include
per person government imposed taxes; PFC’s of up to $18 and September
11th Security Fees of up to $10. Foreign government departure taxes, fees

government authority.

piece per traveler. Each piece of checked baggage may not exceed a weight of
50 lbs. for domestic travel and 70 lbs. for international travel or 62” linear

luggage insurance is strongly recommended. The direct air carrier’s limitation
on its liability for loss, delay or damage to participant’s luggage is limited to
$2,500 per ticketed passenger for domestic travel, and approximately $9.07
per pound for checked baggage up to $640 and $400 per passenger for
unchecked baggage for international travel. These limitations on liability are
subject to change; please contact your direct air carrier.
54
INSURANCE: Trip cancellation, health, accident and luggage insurance is
available and strongly recommended.
PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: Participant(s)
are responsible for determining and obtaining proper documentation
including - any visas that may be required with the appropriate consulate.
Failure to carry proper proof of citizenship may lead to denied entry to
aircraft and/or foreign country. No refunds will be made. All participants are
required to check with the appropriate consulate or embassy for the
respective destination for entry requirements. Children traveling without
parent(s) must have a notarized letter of consent from the parent(s) not
traveling, or a death certificate. This requirement may vary by country. No
refunds will be made if improper documentation results in denied boarding
or entry. A valid passport may be required and should be valid for a minimum
of 6 months after your return date when traveling outside the US. The name
on your ticket must match the name on your identification.
AIRCRAFT, FLIGHT CHANGES AND DELAYS: Participant(s) are subject to
the ticket terms and tariffs of the airlines which, when issued, shall be the
sole contract between the airline and the participant.
MAJOR CHANGES: A “Major Change” is limited to: (i) a change in the
departure or return date, except that flight delay is not a Major Change
unless the Operator knows of it more than 2 days before the scheduled
flight date or if the delay lasts more than 48 hours; (ii) a change in the origin
or destination city, unless the change affects only the order in which cities
are visited; (iii) any substitution of any hotel that is not named (as an option
or otherwise) in Operator’s literature; (iv) a price increase to the
participant(s) which is more than 10 percent of the total price the
participant(s) are paying for the trip. Should Operator know of a Major
Change 10 or more days before scheduled departure, it will notify
participant(s) within 7 days after first knowing of it, but in any event at least
10 days before scheduled departure. Should Operator learn of the Major
Change less than 10 days before scheduled departure, it will notify
participant(s) as soon as possible. For a full refund within 14 days, a
participant may cancel in writing (return receipt) to Operator within 7 days
after receiving notice of a Major Change, but in no event later than
departure. If notice of a Major Change is received after trip departure,
participant may decline to accept the change and be sent a refund of the
portion of his payments allocable to the hotel accommodations or air
transportation not provided within 14 days after scheduled return date.
INTERMEDIARY DISCLOSURE: Operator assists you in finding travel
suppliers and making arrangements that meet your individual needs.
Operator considers various factors in identifying travel suppliers to you and
recommending specific itineraries. In this role, Operator is acting as an
independent third party and not as a fiduciary. The Operator Parties want you
to be aware that certain suppliers pay them commissions as well as
incentives for reaching sales targets or other goals, and from time to time
may also provide incentives to the Operator Parties’ travel counselors.
Certain suppliers may also provide compensation to the Operator Parties for
various marketing and administrative services that they perform for them,
such as granting suppliers access to the Operator Parties’ marketing
channels, participating in marketing programs and supporting technology
initiatives. In addition, our parent company, American Express Travel Related
Services Company, Inc. receives compensation from suppliers when
customers use the American Express
®
Card or other American Express
products to pay for supplier products and services. From time to time the
Operator Parties may enter into other business relationships with suppliers
and these arrangements, including levels and types of compensation and
incentives the Operator Parties receive, are subject to change. In identifying
suppliers and recommending itineraries, Operator may consider a number of
factors, including supplier availability and your preferences. The
relationships the Operator Parties have with suppliers may also influence the
suppliers Operator identifies and the itineraries Operator recommends.
CANCEL FOR ANY REASON TRAVEL PROTECTION PLAN: The cancellation
protection is provided by Travel Impressions and must be purchased at the
time of trip deposit. This cancellation policy only covers pre-paid
arrangements made through Travel Impressions. The post–departure travel
insurance benefits and services were arranged with National Union Fire
Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA under Policy Number 3041-9500360.
This is just a brief summary of benefits. Other limitations and exclusions
apply. For full terms and conditions of coverage, ask your travel agent for the
Description of coverage pamphlet. The policy is provided in addition to other
applicable insurance or indemnity programs, where permitted by law and
shall apply only after benefits have been paid. The policy provides limited
benefits, health-insurance only. It does NOT provide basic hospital, basic
medical or major medical insurances as defined by the New York State
Insurance Department. If you have any questions concerning coverage, please
call our Protection Plan Help Line at (800) 453- 4053.
Cancellation and change penalties apply to these arrangements. Details
will be provided upon request.
