Suppliers:
Creating Travel Dreams LLC, Affiliate of Andavo Travel facilitates the purchase of travel arrangements and services from various independent suppliers that are not subject to its control. Creating Travel Dreams LLC and Andavo Travel cannot, therefore, be held liable for any personal injury or property damage that may occur due to (1) a wrongful, negligent, or arbitrary act by others not under the direct control of Creating Travel Dreams, LLC and Andavo Travel, or (2) defects in or failures of any aircraft, vessel, automotive vehicle, or other means of transportation not under its control.

Traveler Responsibility:
It is the sole responsibility of the traveler to meet all necessary travel requirements prior to departure, including but not limited to obtaining passports, proper entry visas and medical vaccinations. If a passenger is traveling on a passport from a country other than the United States of America, it is the travelers’ responsibility to provide this information to Creating Travel Dreams, LLC.  IMPORTANT:  Passports need to be valid at least 6 months after your return travel date. Creating Travel Dreams, LLC, Affiliate of Andavo Travel will request copies of each travelers’ passport to ensure that name spellings match the travel reservation. If passports are not supplied to Creating Travel Dreams, LLC any and all fees including but not limited to passport corrections and supplier cancellations due to a misspelled name is solely the travelers’ responsibility.

Passports are required for all US Citizens traveling outside of the country including cruises. Some destinations require a travel Visa. Children under age 18 traveling outside of the United States without being accompanied by both legal parents and/or guardians will need to have a Permission to Travel form notarized by the non-traveling parent.

Extenuating Circumstances:
From time to time a service or product that is purchased through a supplier may not be available at time of travel. Scenarios that could occur may be (but not limited to) rail maintenance, road maintenance or road closures due to special events, city or government closures of museums and/or monuments, etc. Recourse may be available through the Travel Insurance supplier.

Cash/Check/Debit Card Payment Implications
Clients who pay by cash, check or debit card have essentially no protection under federal law if services are not received or provided by the vendor. Payments made via credit card are strongly recommended. Generally, the traveler will have some options available with regard to payment of the credit card bill if they do not receive the travel services which they paid for by credit card. Federal law provides certain protections to credit card holders with regard to charges for services not provided. In the event that a supplier does not provide the services paid for, the credit card holder must dispute any such charges, in writing, within 60 days of the purchase in most instances, in order to notify the credit card issuer that the services were not received. Federal law requires that the notification be in writing in order to protect the credit card holder. The Federal Trade Commission publishes “Fair Credit Billing” guidelines on their website as located at http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0219-disputing-credit-card-charges.
 

Travel Insurance:
Creating Travel Dreams, LLC strongly recommends the purchase of travel insurance to help protect the travelers’ investment. Purchasing a travel insurance policy not associated with the supplier provides for the best protection in case of financial insolvency and/or bankruptcy. If travel insurance is not purchased by the traveler, written notification is required by Creating Travel Dreams, LLC in order to release travel documents.
