Terms & Conditions

Traveling Overseas

 

Participants in our tour packages are encouraged to travel with an open mind, active curiosity, and thoughtful courtesy to others. We believe that it is very important to maintain a positive attitude towards the people of the host country, their culture, and their way of life. Lodging and meals, particularly away from large metropolitan cities, may vary and be quite different from what you are used to at home. Enjoy them with a spirit of adventure, which is the reward of foreign travel.

Egy Tour  reserves the right to refuse service and/or terminate the participation of any tour participant whose health or mental condition or physical infirmity impedes the operation of the tour, or whose conduct is discourteous to others.

 

Reservations and Payment

 

A deposit of $600 per person is due at the time of booking.  Final payment for all tour packages is due 65 days prior to departure date. We reserve the right to cancel any reservation if full payment is not received by the due date, and assess appropriate cancellation charges.

 

Refunds and Cancellations

 

Penalties for cancellations received 64 days or more prior to departure are as follows:  $250 per person per tour:  59-45 days: 15% of total tour cost; 44-15 days: 22% of total tour cost; 14-7 days: 50% of total tour cost. If cancellation is received 6 days or less prior to departure date, the registrant will be considered as a "no show" resulting in NO REFUND.

 

All arrangements are inclusive. No refund is granted for unused accommodations, meals, or if cruise ships alter their itineraries. All cancellations must be made in writing, by fax or email, and within 60 days or more from the tour date.

 

Travel Insurance

 

Travel insurance is available. We strongly recommend and advise that you obtain travel insurance. Policies are available to cover loss or damage to luggage, medical emergencies that your regular insurance might not cover when you are overseas, travel interruption, trip cancellation, and unforeseen expenses if you have to cancel your trip.

 

Not Included in Tour Price

 

Charges not mentioned elsewhere on this website: passport, visa fees, laundry, telephone calls, alcoholic beverages including wine and beer, mineral water, insurance of any kind, custom duties, gratuities to tour guides, tour escort, Egyptologist and drivers, excess baggage charges, etc. and extra charges for food ordered a la carte or from room service. These charges must be paid directly to the hotel or restaurant.

 

Documents

 

Final documents, vouchers, air tickets (if the package is purchased as an air/land package) and general material will be forwarded approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure, provided final payment has been received.

 

Price Guarantee

 

Our prices are based on foreign exchange rates; however should currency values change substantially prior to departure, prices may be subject to change. The quoted rate will be confirmed at the time of booking.  Once your deposit is received your tour price is locked and guaranteed, so make sure you book early! If however for reasons beyond our control, such as flight schedule changes, any necessary or additional expenses arise, including any extra night accommodations, such expenses will be transferred on to you.

 

Airfare

 

After you book your air, please notify us of what airline and flight number you will be arriving on. Our Egy Tour staff will be waiting for you on that specific time and day. If you experience travel delays, or flight cancellations, please make sure you notify our U.S. or Cairo offices.

 

Meals 

 

Meals are provided as indicated in each individual program, at the end of each day.

 

Maps

 

The maps on this website show only the approximate locations of cities and places of interest.  Maps are not drawn to scale.

 

Responsibility 

 

Egy Tour & Travel, Inc., an Illinois corporation, acts solely in its capacity as a marketing agent in making and securing all arrangements for transportation, sightseeing, and accommodations for the tour concerned.  Egy Tour of Illinois does not own, manage, control or operate any transportation vehicle, hotel, restaurant or any other supplier of services.  Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. shall not be held responsible for any wrongful or negligent acts or omissions by any supplier or other party not directly owned by Egy Tour & Travel, Inc., or by the failure of any equipment operated by any such supplier or other party. Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. shall not be liable for any loss, injury, or damage to person, property, or otherwise, in connection with any accommodations, transportation, or other services resulting directly or indirectly from any acts of God, dangers incident to the sea, fire, breakdown of machinery or equipment, acts of government or other authorities, wars declared and undeclared, hostilities, civil disturbances, riots, thefts, pilferage, force majeure, default of any third parties, quarantine, medical or customs regulations, acts of terrorism, sickness, strikes, epidemics, criminal activity, or from any other causes resulting from insufficient or improperly issued passports, visas or other documents. Neither Egy Tour & Travel Inc. nor any of its affiliates or subsidiaries shall be or become liable or responsible for any additional expenses of liability sustained or incurred by the tour member as a result of any of the aforementioned causes.

 

Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. responsibility to passengers carried in vehicles and aircraft for transfers, excursions and tours is governed by the laws of the respective countries in which the tours take place and no other country. All claims are subject only to the jurisdiction of the courts of the country in which the cause of action arises.

 

The right is reserved to substitute hotels and cruise ships and to alter itineraries. The right is also reserved to cancel the tour prior to departure. If any tour is cancelled prior to its departure date, Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. is liable only for a refund of monies received by Egy Tour & Travel, Inc.

 

Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. reserves the right to decline to accept or retain any tour participant should such person's health or general deportment impede the operation of the tour. At that point a refund covering the unfinished part of the land tour will be made to such individual.

 

Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. accepts no responsibility for costs which may occur as a result of a participant failing to secure adequate insurance coverage, which is highly recommended. Since penalties can be extremely high, we strongly recommend you purchase trip protection for the money you invest in such a trip. Generally your health insurance does not cover expenses outside the USA. Egy Tour & Travel, Inc. is not responsible for participants' visa or passport requirements, nor will a refund of unused services be made, nor reimbursement of any additional expenditure if a participant is denied entry to a country for this or any other reason.

 

Any litigation concerning the trip may be brought only within the state of Illinois and nowhere else, and the Illinois law will be applicable to any such litigation.

 

By embarking on his/her travel and by accepting the tickets and/or vouchers issued, the traveler voluntarily assumes all responsibility involved in such travel, whether expected or unexpected.

 

The receipt of your deposit and/or full payment will indicate that you have read and consented to these terms and conditions of your own free will.
