Veg Jaunts will not be in breach of these terms and conditions or otherwise be liable to you, for any failure or delay in performing an obligation under this Agreement that is due to any of the following causes, to the extent beyond its reasonable control: acts of God, accident, riots, war, terrorist act, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, civil commotion, breakdown of communication facilities, including web host and internet service provider, breakdown or malfunction of equipment, destruction of or serious damage to facilities, natural catastrophes including, but not limited to extreme weather events, floods and volcanic eruptions, governmental acts or omissions, changes in laws or regulations, national strikes, fire, explosion, generalized lack of availability of raw materials or energy, and any other unforeseen circumstance which is beyond the control of Veg Jaunts (“Force Majeure Event”). THE PURCHASE OF TRAVEL INSURANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ON ALL TRIPS.

Veg Jaunts reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any trip departure for any reason, including insufficient demand, strikes, lockouts, riots, stoppage of labor or Force Majeure event. In the event of a cancellation by Veg Jaunts prior to departure or during your trip for conditions under Force Majeure Veg Jaunts will provide a future travel/booking credit for the portion of your trip impacted. Future travel/booking credit will be redeemable for travel with Veg Jaunts for two year past your original trip start date.

In addition, each of Veg Jaunts’s Suppliers have terms and conditions which include Force Majeure provisions. In the event that a Force Majeure event occurs, those Suppliers may be entitled to, and may in their sole and absolute discretion, vary, postpone or cancel any itinerary or arrangement in relation to the trip. Payment of any refund to you as a result of the non-performance of any obligations by any third-party Supplier shall remain in the sole and
absolute discretion of the Supplier pursuant to their policies, although Veg Jaunts shall use its reasonable efforts to secure reimbursement for you where possible.

In the event of a cancellation by Veg Jaunts prior to departure for reasons other than Force Majeure, Veg Jaunts will use best efforts to rebook the same trip with a different departure date, or to rebook you on a similar trip, but there is no guarantee of availability for future dates, or that the available dates will be agreeable to you, the client. If you accept re-booking, Veg Jaunts will refund the difference in price if the price of the new trip is lower, however, you are responsible for additional costs if the alternate departure is more expensive. If this rebooking
option is not acceptable to you, Veg Jaunts’s only responsibility is to refund the amounts paid by you for the reservation.


It is the responsibility of each Client to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. When traveling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry acceptable identification in order to board a flight. Acceptable identification can be found at http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids; examples are DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, Passport, a foreign government passport. The name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records. You acknowledge any failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing Client to miss flight(s), and subsequent scheduled travel bookings on cruises and tours.

Veg Jaunts strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger if their passport expires within six (6) months of the anticipated date of return. Non-United States citizens may require additional documentation. Client is responsible to make Veg Jaunts aware when traveling on a passport from a country other than the United States of America. Veg Jaunts neither controls nor warrants the issuance of visas or approval of visa waivers related to your travel. Should a visa not be issued, Veg Jaunts is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. Please note that rules of each country regarding entry and exit change on a daily basis.

Children and infants also require travel documents. Minors traveling with one parent, and/or without both parents, may be stopped and not admitted, unless authenticated and verified consent forms are provided to the authorities; please see https://help.cbp.gov/s/article/Article-3643 for additional information.


Each country holds different views of past criminal offenses, whether within or outside of their boundaries. If you have a current or prior criminal offense, contact that country directly for entry and exit requirements. You can visit the US State Department Website for further information about these requirements. See, https://travel.state.gov/content/travel.html. We do not inquire about an individual’s criminal record in the interest of respecting our Clients’ privacy.


No refunds will be issued for unused services (late arrivals, temporary absences from your trip or early departures), for unused transportation where group activity tickets are involved, or for voluntary modifications made by you.

Some group tours are based on minimum numbers of passengers traveling; if the number of passengers falls below the minimum required, a surcharge may be imposed, or the tour may be canceled. Any cancellations of a tour or package for reason of failing to meet the minimum traveler requirement will be governed by our cancellation policy.

Alterations to your itinerary may be necessary for any number of reasons, including but not limited to severe weather. Any alterations to an itinerary are at the sole discretion of Veg Jaunts or its Suppliers, and no refund or trip price reduction is given if an itinerary change is necessary.


You must have the proper immunizations and health screenings and required documentation of such immunizations and screenings before travel. Veg Jaunts shall not assume responsibility for the accuracy of health, vaccination, or documentation prior to departure or upon landing at the final destination. In some cases, required inoculations must be recorded by Client’s health practitioner on a valid vaccination certificate, which the Client must carry for proof of inoculation. If you are concerned about taking any medications or receiving certain inoculations, check with your health practitioner BEFORE booking. Check the State Department Web site http://travel.state.gov, for relevant information relating to travel to specific destinations, and the Center for Disease Control http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/ relating to health issues related to travel.

If you’re exhibiting symptoms commonly associated with a contagious illness (such as a cold, flu, Covid, etc.) while on tour, you will be required to wear a mask on the bus and in other settings when with your group. Please be prepared by packing along your own N95/KN95 masks.


Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Veg Jaunts urges Clients to remain informed on a daily basis as to current news events, as well as to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on health and safety conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at http://www.state.gov, http://www.tsa.gov, http://www.dot.gov, http://www.faa.gov, http://www.cdc.gov, and http://www.cbp.gov.

STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so that the Department of State can better assist you in an emergency. Registration is recommended and provided by going to https://step.state.gov/step/.

Veg Jaunts and all local Suppliers reserve the right to remove you from any facility, hotel or resort property, tour location or means of transportation if your health or your conduct appears to endanger yourself or others, disrupts the general well-being of other clients on any element of your trip, or interferes with the operation or security of the places we visit.

We are not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a trip, or any portion of a trip. You agree not to hold Veg Jaunts or any of its related entities liable

The international carriage of passengers is subject to international conventions and treaties, where applicable. These international agreements limit and, in some events, exclude the carrier’s liability to passengers (trip participants). To the extent permitted by any relevant local law, 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, our maximum liability is the maximum that would be payable by the carrier or the hotel keeper concerned under the applicable international convention, treaty, or regulation applicable to the travel arrangements or hotel stay (e.g., the Warsaw Convention, the Montréal Convention for international travel by air, the EU Regulation on Air Carrier Liability for air carriers with an operating license granted by an EU country, the Athens Convention for international travel by sea) in that situation.

The trip participant agrees that Veg Jaunts shall not 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 any other person.

Air carriers, accommodations, and other Suppliers providing services are independent third-party contractors and are not agents, employees, servants, or joint ventures of Veg Jaunts or its affiliates.

From time-to-time, and for the purpose of identifying those Suppliers as the provider of a component or part of a cruise, package or tour, some Suppliers may utilize Veg Jaunts’s name on promotional media, signage, or attire. Although you may see Veg Jaunts name on vehicles, signs, apparel, or elsewhere during your cruise, tour, or excursion, its use by Suppliers is solely for the purpose of identification and does not represent or signify in any way ownership, management, supervision, direction, or control, or the right to direct or control by Veg Jaunts of
services that are provided by the Suppliers, or of the employees, servants, or agents of the Suppliers.

All certificates and other Trip Documents for services issued by Veg Jaunts are subject to the Terms & Conditions specified by any of our Suppliers, which are available upon request, and to the laws of the countries in which the services are supplied.
