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 New York. At the time of quotation the estimate included for group airfare and taxes is $850. 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 March 2023.

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 October 1, 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 New York 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 $1579 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.

Deviations
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.
