Specific requests such as adjacent or connecting rooms, types of beds, smoking rooms and special dietary needs should be advised at time of booking. Please note that while every effort will be made to secure a special request, it cannot be guaranteed.
AE reserves the right to modify program itineraries, including arranged sightseeing, and substitute accommodations, including vessels, at any time due to unforeseen circumstances or those beyond AE’s control. Every effort 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 and other points of interest can change their hours of operations at short notice. If this occurs, your guide will offer alternative arrangements.
International airfare (to the holiday starting point and from the ending point) is not included in pricing. Some holidays require internal flights as specified in the itinerary. This airfare is typically not included and must be purchased directly with provider in addition to the journey.
All air carriers are independent contractors and are not owned, managed, controlled or operated by AE. Your airline ticket constitutes a contract between yourself and the airlines (and not AE), even if purchased through AE. AE is not liable for, and does not assume responsibility or accept claims with regard to, 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.

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