Deposit only may be paid online via credit card. Registrations received inside of ninety-five (95) days of departure (see inside brochure) are considered late registrations and require full payment at the time of registration and a $150 late fee per passenger will be assessed.

BALANCE is due in full 95 days before departure (see brochure) and CANNOT be paid via credit card. Final payments received inside of this deadline will be assessed a $50 per passenger late payment fee. All reservations not fully paid by the deadline are subject to cancellation for which TLC Holyland Tours is not to be held responsible.

PAYMENT by an individual or for an individual affirms your agreement to these terms and conditions. Payment can be made by check, cash, or check form.

PASSPORT must be valid for a minimum of six-months after your date of return from Israel, as required by Israel. (For US citizens, no visa is required by Israel.) A clear scan of your passport must be received by TLC Holyland Tours by the time the final balance is due.

PROOF OF MEDICAL INSURANCE in the form of a scanned image of the front and back of your health insurance card is required with the passport scan.

TRANSPORTATION is by modern air-conditioned motor coach and by jet, economy class seating. Tickets must be completed 30 days prior to departure and cannot be changed once issued. Upgrades and cost are the sole responsibility of the passenger after ticketing

DEVIATIONS/STOPOVERS, or any individual change in the return date that is a deviation from the basic group itinerary will NOT be allowed.

HOTELS are based on two persons sharing a twin-bedded room with private bath. Single rooms are subject to availability for an additional cost. If a passenger cannot supply a roommate and TLC Holyland Tours, LLC is unable to do so, or your roommate cancels before departure, the passenger will have to pay the supplemental charge.   (Passenger may be billed after the final payment date for single room accommodations as necessary.)

MEALS are on half board (HB); two meals daily – breakfast and dinner at hotel with full Israeli buffet – unless otherwise noted in tour brochure. Lunch meals may be arranged in advance by the tour host with an extra charge, otherwise lunch cost is the responsibility of each passenger.

SIGHTSEEING is with local transportation by deluxe air-conditioned motor coach. The services of an English speaking guide, and entrance fees to all sites visited as described in the itinerary, are included in the tour price. The actual daily itinerary is subject to adjustment at the discretion of the tour operator or their representative on the ground in Israel.

NOTE: Each passenger should be physically able to walk, get on and off the bus, go up and down stairs, walk on uneven terrain, and generally get around without assistance. Any passenger unable to do so must bring someone to assist them at their own expense.

NOT INCLUDED: Passport costs; food and beverages (including coffee and tea) not usually included with regular meals; optional tours and excursions not mentioned in this itinerary; accident and baggage insurance; transporting and handling excess luggage, and trip tips. In the event it becomes necessary to overnight material due to late receipt of registration or final payments, traveler will be billed for these charges. Any quotes of airport taxes and/or fuel surcharges are only based on good faith estimates. Actual airport taxes and/or fuel surcharges are estimated; any increase before ticketing will be billed to each passenger as TLC Holyland Tours is billed by the taxing entity.

AIR MILES CANNOT BE USED FOR GROUP TRAVEL.

DOMESTIC FLIGHTS, if not specifically included in the tour package are the responsibility of the participant, to and from the international departure airport.

If domestic travel is booked more than 60 days in advance of departure date you are encouraged to purchase a flexible ticket which allows for no charge or minimal charge for flight changes. You will need to arrive at the airport 3½ – 4 hours before international departure time. TLC Holyland Tours is not responsible for changes to the flight schedule.

Any passenger, including host(s) personally reserving flight(s) to connect to the group at any point in the journey, is required by TLC Holyland Tours to use the airline being used by that group. TLC Holyland Tours will not be available to assist, in any way, with personal reservations or travel difficulties resulting from said reservation.
