These Majolica Travel S.r.l.s. Terms & Conditions apply to Tailor Made and Majolica Sicily Tours Collection 2024-25 journeys departing between January 1, 2024, and December 31, 2025, and bookings for future years until updated.

 

INCLUDED IN JOURNEYS

All accommodations, meals, English-speaking guides, and private sightseeing, as noted in the itineraries, and all the services included in the contract signed at the time of booking confirmation; park and entrance fees; arrival and departure transfers; coffee/tea/soft drinks/water at included meals; complimentary Internet access (where available at land accommodations; service levels are not guaranteed); porterage of up to two (2) pieces of baggage per person; and hotel taxes.

 

NOT INCLUDED IN JOURNEYS

International and internal airfares, unless otherwise noted; costs associated with obtaining passports or entry visas; reciprocity and other border fees; airport departure taxes, unless otherwise noted; excess baggage charges; all gratuities; meals other than those specified in the itinerary; room service; beverages other than those mentioned in inclusions above or specified in the itinerary; any meals for your guides if you invite him/her to dine with you; sightseeing not included in the itinerary; and personal expenses such as laundry, communication charges, and optional activities (which are subject to availability).

 

HOTEL CHECK-IN

Most hotels allow check-in to take place during the midafternoon. Should you wish to have a guaranteed room ready for your immediate check-in upon arrival, it requires an additional room night to be confirmed. Please ask Majolica for details and prices. Requests for early check-in based on hotel availability cannot be guaranteed and are at the hotel's sole discretion.

 

ROOM UPGRADES/SPECIAL REQUESTS

Upgrades are typically available on request at individual hotels for an additional cost. Please ask Majolica for details and prices. In addition, guests should advise specific requests such as adjacent or connecting rooms, bedding requests, smoking rooms, and special dietary needs at the time of booking. Please note that Majolica will make reasonable efforts to secure special requests; however, they cannot be guaranteed.

 

ITINERARIES

Majolica reserves the right to modify program itineraries, including arranged sightseeing and featured experts, and substitute accommodations, including vessels, aircraft, and trains, at any time due to unforeseen circumstances or circumstances beyond Majolica’s control. Reasonable efforts will be made to operate itineraries as planned, but alterations may occur after the final itinerary has been issued. All scheduled sightseeing has been confirmed in advance, but venues, including wildlife reserves, museums, and other points of interest can change their hours of operations at short notice. If this occurs, your guide will offer alternative arrangements.

 

AIR TRANSPORTATION

International airfare (to the starting point and ending point) is not included in program pricing. In addition, some journeys require internal flights as specified in the itinerary. This airfare is typically not included and must be purchased from Majolica in addition to the journey. All international and internal air quotes are subject to change until Majolica has received final payment. Flight confirmation is based on availability. Majolica cannot confirm air reservations until a passport copy is received.

All air carriers are independent contractors and are not owned, managed, controlled, or operated by Majolica. Your airline ticket constitutes a contract between yourself and the airlines (and not Majolica), even if purchased through Majolica. Majolica shall not be liable and does not assume responsibility for, or accept claims concerning seat assignments, name changes, schedule changes, flight changes, and/or cancellations. Should you change or cancel your air transportation arrangements before or after your travel begins, all airline change and cancellation fees will apply.

 

GROUND TRANSPORTATION

For services that include ground transport, therefore the meeting with driver, Majolica will agree a precise pick-up time with the Guest to ensure the success of the services and confirmed experiences. Majolica will communicate pick-up and meeting points times upon transmission of the pre-departure documents. The Guest can inform Majolica about any requests for time preferences up to the day before the starting of the service and will be confirmed exclusively if the Guests' preferences communicated are compliant with the correct performance of the services. The driver will arrive at each meeting 10-15 minutes early than the confirmed time. Majolica kindly asks Guests to be on time to take advantage of excellent services. If due to a delay on the part of the Guest, the service exceeds the previously confirmed hourly availability, the Guest will be required to pay the extra time (€ 50,00/extra hour). As far as transfers from/to the airport are concerned, Majolica grants one hour of guaranteed waiting, beyond which the Guest is required to pay the extra waiting time (€ 60,00/extra hour). The drivers and/or assistants waiting for Guests at the airport do not have the authorization to enter beyond the arrivals area. Drivers will welcome Guests in the arrivals area of the airport.

 

BAGGAGE

Majolica provides porterage of up to two (2) pieces of baggage per person. Please note should your journey include internal/domestic or charter flights, your luggage allowance may be less than two (2) pieces of baggage, and weight/size restrictions and additional costs may apply.

Majolica will provide details in your Pre-Travel Documentation. Baggage and personal effects are at the owner’s risk throughout the travel program, and Majolica assumes no liability for lost or damaged luggage. Please check with your international carrier for other baggage restrictions and fees applicable to your international flights.

 

CHILD POLICY

No minimum age is required unless noted on the itinerary, and an adult must accompany all children under age 18. Note that some accommodations require that children below a certain age share a room with an adult.

The parent or guardian traveling alone with a child is recommended to carry documentation that proves their relationship to the child (e.g., birth certificate) and evidence that they can travel with the child (e.g., consent letter). Guests traveling with children who are not related are recommended to carry documentation that provides evidence they have permission to travel with the child. Guests are advised to check with the appropriate government authority to determine the necessary documents required for travel with children. Majolica cannot be held responsible should the guest, child, or member of the traveling party be denied entry to a country due to non-compliance with a country’s requirements.

 

ACTIVE ELEMENTS & CONDUCT

The suppliers of some activities on journeys may require a minimum age or minimum/maximum height or weight to participate. Some active elements have been incorporated into select itineraries. To enjoy the journeys as intended, a minimum level of fitness is required. Majolica will require prior notice if any participant has any physical or other condition or disability that would prevent them from participating in active elements of any journey and/or could create a hazard to themselves or other group members. Specific journeys have conditions that may require a guest to produce a doctor’s certificate to Majolica before travel. Majolica will make reasonable efforts to accommodate a disability-related request for accommodation. However, if Majolica, in its sole discretion, is unable to adequately accommodate the need of the person(s) concerned or believes that health and safety may be compromised, Majolica reserves the right to refuse participation. The guest represents that neither he nor she nor anyone traveling with him or her has any physical or other condition or disability that could create a hazard to himself or herself or other members of the tour. Majolica also reserves the right to remove from the trip, at the guest’s own expense, anyone whose physical condition or conduct negatively impacts the enjoyment of the other guests or disrupts the tour.

 

PASSPORTS AND VISAS

The guest’s sole responsibility is to obtain and have available the appropriate valid travel documents when necessary. All guests are advised to check with the appropriate government authority to determine the necessary documents required for their travel. A valid passport is required for all international destinations. Passports must be valid for six (6) months after completing your journey and should also have sufficient blank visa pages for entry and exit stamps. Travelers should contact the appropriate consular office for entry requirements about their journey. You may be refused to board or disembarked from a plane, vessel, or train without liability for refund, payment, compensation, or credit of any kind if you do not have proper documentation, and you will be subject to any fine or other costs incurred by Majolica which result from improper documentation or noncompliance with applicable regulations. Majolica shall not be responsible should any guest be denied entry to a country due to non-compliance with these requirements.
