It is important to read this information and the associated tabs carefully. The Terms and Conditions include our Payment Policy, Cancellation Policy, Validity of Prices, Liability details and other important information

Additional Passengers Additional passengers (parents, siblings, relatives, friends etc.) are welcome (and encouraged) to join the tour at any time as long as seats are available on the airline’s group reservation. Any passengers joining the tour after the airline group reservation has been filled has deposited will be subject to airline costing on that date.

Airline Information Airlines reserve the right to increase their departure tax (based on airport fees / government security taxes) and fuel surcharges at any time. To maintain the quoted tour price it is essential that the payment installments are received on the stated dates. To minimize any increases Quest Sports Travel strongly recommends that the group ‘ticket’ all passengers as early as possible. ‘Ticketing’ requires payment in full to the airline. Once ticketed, airfare costs are non-refundable.

Departure City: The departure city for this tour will be NY JFK or Newark. At the time of quotation the estimate included for group airfare and taxes is $1050. All efforts are made to secure the most direct and cost effective routing. Routing and cost implications will be discussed with tour leaders before publication of flight details. Flight details will be avialable in September 2022.

Airline Deposit: Airlines deposits become non-refundable by the airline 91 days+ prior to departure. To be included in the group airfare pricing registration is required before April 20, 2023. After that date passengers can still be added, but price will be based on purchase at applicable fare on that purchase date. It may also still be possible to be added to the group reservation after that date, but the airline reserves the right to increase pricing for late additions.

Land Only Passengers: If you do not live in the NY JFK or Newark area and would like to make your own flight arrangements from another airport, you can travel as a ‘Land Only’ passenger. In doing so, your tour price will be reduced by the exact cost of airfare and taxes. At the time of the quote, this land only tour price estimate is $1881 per person. If required, Quest Sports Travel can assist in securing airfare from your airport of choice. Likewise, if you opt to secure your own airfare using frequent flyer miles (see below) you will also travel on a ‘Land Only’ basis. If you are traveling “Land Only” you must inform Quest Sports Travel at least 91 days prior to departure so that your seat is released before it becomes payable in full and non-refundable.

Frequent Flyer Programs: Airlines do not accept frequent flier miles as payment for group airfare. If a traveler wishes to use frequent flier miles they must secure their own airfare and will pay Quest Sports Travel a ‘Land Only’ cost. No alterations will be made to the published itinerary to service individuals traveling separately from the main group.

Flight Deviations: Airline rules allow flight deviations for passengers on either the departure or the return legs of the group reservation, as long as the return is made from the same airport as the main group. Airlines charge a deviation fee to do so. The fee depends on the airline. Airlines may also limit the time pre/post tour of travel and may charge additional cost based on availability on date of travel

Hotel Deviations: If you are need hotel accommodation before the group arrival or after the group departure Quest Sports Travel can secure for you at the team hotels. Logistically this will be beneficial to you so you don't have to check in and out again of nearby hotels, or even the same hotel if you secure your own room that isn't linked to the group reservation. Pricing will be the exact price the hotel charges Quest.

Deviation Fee: Securing alternate flights or hotels involves additional work for Quest Sports Travel and sometimes creates difficulties with logistics if you do not arrive or depart at the same time as the group. Therefore, a deviation fee of $100 per passenger will be applied to any family using Quest Sports Travel to assist with alternative travel plans.

Laws This agreement is subject to the laws and jurisdiction of the state of New York.

Local Laws: Passengers are required to abide by all local laws, including any customs and health & safety protocols. Any breach of this requirement may result in removal from the tour and passengers will be required to return home at their own expense. 

Liability Disclaimer (i) Quest Sports Travel reserves the right to amend any itinerary due to conditions beyond our control e.g changes in weather. Every reasonable effort is made not to delete a specified inclusion but to fulfill the conditions and terms for the best interests of all parties. (ii) Quest Sports Travel is not liable in any way for airline delays, cancellation, or loss of luggage. (iii) Quest Sports Travel is not liable in any way for any government action or prohibition restricting travel or causing a tour cancellation. (iv) Quest Sports Travel is not liable in any way for a force majeure event that prevents the fulfillment of obligations. (v) Individuals engaging in athletic activities and contests assume the risk of those activities and will not hold Quest Sports Travel liable for any injuries incurred.

Terms and Conditions Summary Penn College will travel to Scotland and England from July 28th- August 6th, 2023. This 10 day / 8 night tour has been developed by Quest Sports Travel and quoted on August 11th, 2022

Estimated Tour Cost: 40 paying passengers = $2835 per person

Estimated Tour Cost: 35 paying passengers = $2931 per person

Estimated Tour Cost: 30 paying passengers = $3023 per person

This quotation is based on current land service and air travel prices. It is calculated based on the rate of international currency exchange on 08/11/22 of £1 = $1.22. It is based upon the estimated group size of paying passengers traveling listed above. The quote price includes a $1050 estimate for airfare, airline taxes and fuel surcharges.

Inclusions for your tour are listed on the proposal document. All Quest Sports Travel tours do not include the following items:

  • Airline taxes and fuel surcharges above amount listed in quote above
  • Lunches and drinks (other than water) with meals
  • Room upgrades - this tour is based on twin room occupancy so surcharges will apply single bedded rooms
  • Gratuities for Tour Manager and Motor Coach Driver
  • Additional attractions or entry fees not specified in the Inclusions site

Payments will be distributed among 6 installments. The installment dates are structured to allow timely payment of vendor invoices. Late payments jeopardize the tour quotation. Payment plan is based on the 35 paying passenger quote price:

Initial Deposit = $306 per person due: August 28, 2022

Installment #4 = $525 per person due: March 28, 2023
Balance = $525 per person due: May 28, 2023

If you join the tour after the first installment date (September 28, 2022) your # of installments will be reduced, but amount per installment increased accordingly.

Quest Sports Travel will calculate and publish the Final Balance Invoice around May 10, 2023. Balances will be adjusted to reflect group size, rate of international currency exchange etc.

If you have additional fees for room upgrades, flight deviations etc. these will also be charged in the balance payment in May 2023.

VISA = 2.9%

Force Majeure - In the event Quest Sports Travel is unable to perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement because of acts of God, pandemic or other causes reasonably beyond its control, Quest Sports Travel shall not be liable for damages beyond the amounts agreed in the cancellation policy from such failure to perform or otherwise from such causes.
