nonrefundable cancellation fee of 100% of all payments made per person
including departure taxes & fuel surcharges, single supplement, deviation fees,

offered as protection for cancellations due to medical reasons such as illness or
injury, please see TRAVEL INSURANCE. Travel insurance payments are
nonrefundable upon receipt. Tour participation is nontransferable. Names cannot
be transferred on reservations or airline tickets. Refund requests can only be
honored when submitted in writing to Peter’s Way Tours. All refund requests are
subject to cancellation restrictions as set forth above. No refund will be made for
any accommodations or services included in the tour that you do not use.
LATE RESERVATIONS: A $25.00 late fee and possible increase in airfare may
apply for bookings received after the deposit deadline. All space is subject to availability
and cannot be guaranteed past the deposit deadline noted on the brochure.
TRAVEL DOCUMENTS: All participants must have a valid passport. U.S. Passports
must be valid for at least six (6) months subsequent to return date. Special entry
requirements for non-U.S. citizens may apply. For other International Passport
holders, please visit Spain’s official tourism portal for country specific
requirements [http://www.spain.info]. It is solely the passenger’s responsibility to
ensure that all documents needed are completed, current and in good condition.
Peter’s Way will not be held responsible for lack of current and valid entry documents.
DEVIATIONS & ITINERARY CHANGES: Peter’s Way recommends that you DO NOT purchase your airline tickets until you receive the Official Tour Welcome Packet in the mail. Prior to sending out the Welcome Packets, Peter’s Way has not confirmed the tour will proceed as planned.
TRANSFERS AND PORTERAGE: One private coach transfers on June 20 from
Santiago de Compostela Airport to Sarria and one private coach transfer on June
28 from Santiago de Compostela to Airport; Private coach service in a 35-seat bus,
with space for one piece of luggage per person, for the duration of the tour.
ACCOMMODATIONS/SINGLE TRAVELERS: Price per person is based on two
persons sharing twin bedded rooms with private facilities in hotels throughout
your tour. Double bedded rooms for married couples are subject to availability
and must be requested. Triple rooms may be available for family or friends
traveling together. We discourage triple room accommodations because they are
usually not spacious and there is no discount for triple occupancy. Triple rooms
usually are regular twin or double bedded rooms with a rollaway bed added.
Single rooms are limited but may be requested at booking for an additional
charge of $395.00. While single rooms provide privacy, they are often smaller than
twin bedded rooms and may be away from the group in hotels. We will make
every effort (if you so desire) to match you with a same gender roommate when
we receive your application, but we do not guarantee a roommate can be
matched. If a single room must be assigned due to your roommate's cancellation,
incompatibility or for any other reason (even at the last moment or on tour), we
must charge the tour's single supplement or pro-rated amount.
MEALS: Breakfast and dinner daily. Beverages (coffee, tea, mineral water) are not
included at set menu dinners.
GRATUITIES & SERVICE CHARGES: Gratuities to the tour manager/guide,
and driver are not included in the package price. For good work, we recommend
4,00 Euro per person per day for your tour manager; 2,00 Euro per person per day
for your bus driver. Tips for your tour manager and bus driver are normally given
as a group at the end of the tour. Other gratuities are usually handled individually.
All service charges and local taxes as imposed by hotels are included in the program
rate. It is customary to leave 1,00 Euro per person for your waiter following
dinner at the hotel and 1,00 Euro per person per day for housekeeping.
TRAVELER HEALTH ADVISORY: All passengers must ensure that they are
medically and physically fit for travel; and that such traveling will not endanger
themselves or others as our pilgrimages entail a lot of walking, which may involve
stairs, hills, cobblestone roads and uneven pavement. Additionally, most motor
coaches are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. It is each passenger’s responsibility
to be aware of his or her limits with regard to travel and group activities.
Any person with a disability requiring special attention must advise Peter’s
Way Tours of the situation at time of enrollment. A qualified companion must
accompany any passenger requiring special assistance. Peter’s Way Tours will
make reasonable attempts to accommodate disabled passengers with special
needs, but shall not be held responsible in the event we are unable to do so.
Moreover, Peter’s Way Tours is not responsible for the denial of services by any
carriers, hotels, restaurants, or other independent suppliers.
DISCLAIMER OF RESPONSIBILITY: Peter’s Way Tours is only acting as
intermediary and agent for the suppliers identified on this, or any accompanying
documents, in selling services, or in accepting reservations or bookings for
services that are not directly supplied by Peter’s Way Tours (such as air carriage,
hotel accommodations, ground transportation, meals, tours, cruises, etc.). Peter’s
Way Tours shall not be responsible for breach of contract, bankruptcy or any
intentional or careless actions or omissions on the part of such suppliers, which
result in any loss, damage, delay, or injury to any traveler, travel companions or
group member. Peter’s Way Tours shall not be held responsible for any changes
made in the schedule of liturgies throughout the pilgrimage. Unless the term
“guaranteed” is specifically written on the ticket, invoice or reservation itinerary,
Peter’s Way does not guarantee any supplier’s rates, bookings or reservations.
Peter’s Way Tours shall not be responsible for any injuries, damages, or losses
caused to any traveler in connection with terrorist activities, social or labor
unrest, airline strikes, mechanical or construction difficulties, diseases, local
laws, climatic conditions, abnormal conditions or developments, or any other
actions, omissions, or conditions outside Peter’s Way Tours control. By
embarking upon the trip, the traveler voluntarily assumes all risks involved with
such travel, whether expected or unexpected. The traveler is hereby warned of
such risks and is advised to obtain appropriate insurance coverage against them.
Peter’s Way Tours does not accept responsibility or liability for minors traveling
on the tour. A signed enrollment form by traveler shall constitute consent to
the above terms and conditions.
TRAVEL INSURANCE: It is strongly recommended that all participants
purchase insurance when they travel since the tour operator is not responsible
for non-refundable payments, damaged luggage or trip interruption. Peter’s
Way Tours offers an optional Passenger Travel Protection Plan. These benefits
and services help insure the well being of the passenger while traveling
worldwide. The insurance premium is based on total package price, including
taxes, fuel surcharges, single supplements, deviation fees, late charges, etc. The
insurance premium for total package prices from $0 to $1000.00 is $100;
$1001.00 to $2000.00 is $175; $2001.00 to $3000.00 is $225; $3001.00 to $4000.00 is
$250; $4001.00 to $5000.00 is $275; and $5001.00 and over is 6% of total package
price. If the insurance premium is included with your deposit, the passenger
will be covered for pre-existing conditions. However, the insurance plan can be
purchased at any time thereafter, excluding coverage for pre-existing conditions,
until final payment has been made. Plan payments will not be accepted after
final payment has been made. All plan payments are non-refundable. If you
choose to extend your stay or embark on a pre-tour program, travel insurance
can be purchased for an additional $4.00 per day. Additional coverage needs to
be requested. The insurance plan will not automatically be extended. The
insurance plan will only cover pre-paid arrangements made through Peter’s
Way Tours. Passengers who book their own airfare (Land Only passengers or
those booking connecting flights to the group’s departure gateway) are advised
to purchase travel insurance covering their flights directly from the airline or
from another travel insurance supplier. The Passenger Travel Protection Plan
includes coverage for the following: trip cancellation/interruption/delay,
accident/sickness medical expense, emergency medical evacuation/
repatriation, lost baggage/personal effects, accidental death & dismemberment
and 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance Services. These benefits and services
are provided by Travel Insured International. Upon claim approval,
reimbursement is up to 100% of the non-refundable payments for your trip.
Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) add-on can be purchased for the cost of your
insurance premium plus an additional $115.00. This includes reasons for
cancellation not otherwise covered by the regular policy. You can cancel up to 2
days prior to departure and receive reimbursement of up to 80% of the
non-refundable payments for your trip. Payment for CFAR must be included
with your deposit at the time of enrollment. CFAR coverage cannot be offered to
New York State residents as per state law. PLEASE NOTE: For complete details
of coverage, terms, conditions, exclusions, and pre-existing conditions for the
insurance protection provided, refer to the Description of Coverage, which you
will receive with your travel documents. If you need further information, please
