For NEW bookings:

  • Never lose your money. Notify us in writing at least 30 days before your departure if unsure to go DUE TO COVID-19 travel restrictions. You will have the option to keep any monies paid toward the original booking as Trip Credit usable on a future trip departing until 31 December 2021.

If the trip or departure is less expensive than the original, a trip credit will be issued for the difference.
  • The due date for the full payment is reduced to 30 days prior to the departure date, instead of 60 days.

By Bucket List Group Travel LLC:

We may cancel a trip at any time up to 30 days before departure, if, for example, the minimum number of 4 participants required for departure isn’t satisfied. We will advise if the trip does not have the minimum requirement at the time of booking. We also may cancel a trip at any time prior to departure if, due to terrorism, natural disasters, political instability or other external events it is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary. If we cancel your trip you will receive a full refund. In circumstances where the cancellation is due to external events outside our reasonable control refunds will be less any unrecoverable costs. We are not responsible for any incidental expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your booking including but not limited to visas, vaccinations, travel insurance excess or non-refundable flights.

Insurance

Travel insurance is required for all international trips. Insurance covers (and reimburses you) for things like trip cancellation, trip interruption, and trip delay, lost or delayed baggage, medical coverage, medical evacuation, etc. For example, if there’s a giant snowstorm and your plane is grounded and you end up (unfortunately) missing most or all of the trips the insurance company would reimburse you for this. Please note Bucket List Group Travel would not reimburse you for this (hence why we strongly recommend travel insurance).
Note that travel insurance (nor Bucket List Group Travel) would cover such things as “I overslept and missed my plane”. There are different degrees and levels of trip insurance but we require a minimum coverage of $100,000 covering personal injury, medical expenses, etc. Your entire trip cost (including airfare) must be covered under whichever plan you purchase. You will need to provide proof of purchase of travel insurance before going on the trip; we have the right to refuse attendance if valid trip insurance coverage is not produced prior to the trip start date.

Flight Booking

We need a minimum of 7 members for any trip to happen so before booking your local or international flights, please confirm and co-ordinate with the trip organizer about it.

Passports and Visas

Valid passports are required for travel to all international destinations. The traveller is responsible to ensure his/her passport is valid for at least 6 months after the departure date of the trip.  Check with the appropriate consulate or embassy for the latest visa requirements.

Pricing

Prices are based on current rates of exchange, tariffs and taxes. Bucket List Group Travel LLC reserves the right to increase tour prices to cover increased costs, tariffs and taxes, and to reflect fluctuations in foreign exchange markets. Bucket List Group Travel LLC also reserves the right to withdraw a tour or any part of it to make such alterations in the itinerary or with the tour inclusions as it deems necessary or desirable and to pass on to tour members any expenditures or losses caused by delays or events beyond its control. Itineraries and arranged sightseeing are subject to change at any time due to unforeseen circumstances or circumstances beyond Bucket List Group Travel LLC control. Every effort will be made to operate tours as planned, but alterations may occur after the final itinerary has been issued.  See Changes to Itineraries for further details.

Trip participants who prefer that their images not be used must state so while booking for an event.

Claims and Refunds

Refunds are not made for any missed services, except for verifiable extenuating circumstances. Please see our Limits on Responsibility on this page. For verifiable claims to be considered, they must be received in writing within 30 days of the termination of the program and be accompanied by supporting documentation and/or a statement from the Operating Company verifying the claim. Any adjustment considered will be based on the actual price of the services involved and not on a per diem basis. Adjustments will not be made for unused sightseeing trips or meals.

All claims for days missed while travelling should be made in writing within 30 days of the termination of the program.

Air Transportation

BUCKET LIST GROUP TRAVEL LLC will not accept any responsibility for mistakes or errors in airfare bookings made by independent third parties. The traveler’s confirmed web page will have detailed tour information, and it is up to the traveler to ensure the correct arrival and departure flight information from the tour start and end cities. The independent agent will arrange the best-priced airfare available at the time of your trip’s booking. Please note that certain airfares are subject to a service fee.

Airlines concerned are not to be held responsible for any act, omission or event during the time passengers are not on board their planes or conveyances. These programs may use the services of any IATA carrier. International air carriers are subject to international air conventions limiting their liability. The limitations of liability are contained on the reverse side of the airline ticket and form part of the terms and conditions of this package. The passage contract in use by these companies, when issued, shall constitute the sole contract between the companies and the purchaser of these travel programs and/or passage.

Baggage allowances on airlines are subject to the specific policy of the air carrier we have booked.  You are responsible for any additional baggage charges beyond what the airline has allowed.  You will be notified of the exact airline carrier at least 14 days prior to departure.

Authority on Tours

Our group trips are run by a group leader. The decision of the group leader is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any person participating in the trip. If you fail to comply with a decision made by a group leader, or interfere with the well-being or mobility of the group, the group leader may direct you to leave the trip immediately, with no right of refund.  We may also elect not to carry you on any future trips booked. You must at all times comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and drug regulations of all countries visited.  Further, your trip will travel between cities on various modes of transportation; if you are not present at the aforementioned time (for said transportation) your group leader reserves the right to carry on without you so as not to divert from the predetermined itinerary.  If this is the case we are not responsible for any additional transportation costs that may arise.  We are not responsible for your health, safety, well being, or any other liabilities during this time in which you are “separated from the group” on your own recognizance.  Lastly, you are never obliged to participate in any activity, which you wish not to for whatever reason.

Changes to Itineraries

BUCKET LIST GROUP TRAVEL LLC reserves the right to cancel, delay, or reschedule any tour prior to departure, and, so long as this is not due to any causes beyond our control (as stated in the Limits on Responsibility section) the passenger shall be entitled to a full refund of all monies paid to that point if he/she so desires, less any non-refundable deposits or uncollectible expenses incurred. If we do change the itinerary, and you are already booked for that particular trip, we will notify you of the changes.  If you are not pleased with the changes you may receive a full refund provided you request a refund 3 business days after receiving a notice of change to your trip itinerary from BUCKET LIST GROUP TRAVEL LLC.
