Terms and Conditions as Agreed on Easy Payment Form and Make Payment Form:
AGREEMENT BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND ItalianTourism.us
I understand all of the terms and conditions regarding this booking including cancellation policies, applicable penalties, and the availability of travel insurance.
NAMES MUST MATCH PASSPORT!*
The name given on your booking must match the name on your passport, and in-turn, the name on your air ticket. Any variation between the spelling of your name on your air-ticket and passport will require re-ticketing, often at the cost of a completely new ticket.
FEES FOR AIR-TICKET NAME CHANGES/REVISIONS/CANCELLATIONS.*
Name corrections before ticketing will incur a minimum fee of $50 per passenger, and are subject to fare, and or flight schedule changes. Once air tickets are issued, a minimum $300 revision/cancellation fee will apply to each ticket, plus fare, and or flight changes if applicable. This charge is not covered by insurance and subject to change.
PLEASE CONFIRM YOU UNDERSTAND INCORRECT NAME SPELLING WILL RESULT IN SUBSTANTIAL LOSS
It is your responsibility to verify spelling of names and all other information. Airlines dictate that reservations requiring name corrections be cancelled and rebooked based on current pricing. This will result in different schedules, higher airfare and minimum penalties of $300/per person, up to 100% of the ticket price.

Sightseeing & Itinerary
Escorted Italy tours are operated by motor-vehicle, its size dictated by the number of participants. Tours have been designed to accommodate individuals as well as groups. The number of participants may vary during the tour, as tour operator accommodates travelers arriving on different airlines and on different days of the week. Times listed in itineraries are approximate and meant only as guidelines. Some itineraries may have early morning start times for sightseeing to complete the touring during daylight hours or avoid afternoon heat in tropical and desert climates. It is your responsibility to arrive on time for all scheduled flights, cruises, and package components. Arriving late may be considered a “no-show”, in which case you will not be eligible for refund for the unused service(s). We cannot guarantee the number of passengers who will be on any given tour. You may find that you are traveling with a sizeable group or only with your own companions. Services, however, will remain constant no matter the number of tour participants. On dates including, but not limited to religious holidays and national celebrations, some monuments and sites may be closed. On these occasions, touring itineraries may be amended to reflect these closures. Occasionally, during holidays and certain periods, and/or due to unforeseen circumstances including weather conditions there may be last-minute changes, sometimes after arrival, affecting the sequence of the tour, locations visited and/or hotels. Therefore, tour operator reserves the right to adjust the sequence and/or substitute any hotels with others of similar category. In such cases there will be no cost adjustment. National monuments and tourist sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure the monument’s view. No tour will be canceled due to renovations, however tour operator will decide based on the conditions whether to amend an itinerary. Itineraries may contain suggestions for activities for your leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute an endorsement of any specific service provider and the decision to participate in any such activities should be made independently and with due consideration.
