PASSENGER NAME: Passengers are responsible to ensure that the names printed on the invoice exactly match the first and last name written in their passport. Any name change may require airline reservations to be canceled and rebooked. Reservations are subject to availability at the time of rebooking.

Airlines reserve the right to demand immediate issuance of tickets whenever they determine that necessary. In that case, HT will require immediate full payment of the airfare portion and taxes. This situation overrides invoice terms and conditions and payment due dates. If full payment is not received, seats will be cancelled by the airline and may not be available to be rebooked on the same flights or at the same airfare. Any replacement of air arrangements and any additional cost of airfare will be the sole responsibility of the passenger.

All rooms are twin-bedded rooms with private facilities, unless an upgrade was requested. Room selection is at the discretion of the hotel. Triple rooms consist of a standard twin bedded room plus a sofa, folding bed or cot for the third person.

BAGGAGE: The less you bring with you, the better; we recommend that you take along one suitcase per person, plus a small overnight bag. On land, due to limited motor coach capacity, we request that only one bag per person be carried on motor coaches. If additional baggage is carried (other than overnight bag) a supplementary charge of $2.00 per additional suitcase per “lift” will be levied according to the number of lifts. Baggage charges apply according to each airline’s rules. You may visit the foreign airline’s website to view the specific baggage fee information. Baggage is carried at owner’s risk and baggage insurance is strongly recommended.

PORTERAGE: Porterage of one suitcase per person is provided in our tours. However you should know that strict security precautions in Greece, especially going through Customs inspections, on entry or exit points, demand that you carry your personal piece of luggage for the Customs official. This procedure is seriously enforced in Greece and there are no exceptions to the rule. We ask that you bring with you only a small carry on piece and one suitcase. Both pieces you should be able to carry on your own, where necessary, when the law, for your own protection, demands it. This will be in Customs and security areas such at ports and airports. Our own people will be there beyond these areas to assist you. Also porterage is not always available on the islands and especially in Santorini.

PASSPORTS AND VISAS: United States citizens require a valid passport. It is recommended that the passport is valid for at least (6) months after travel. It is recommended that the passport is valid at least (6) months. For other countries see page 50.
