TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

It is the responsibility of each customer to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. DESTINATION EUROPE ONLINE strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger, if their passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Children and infants also require all such travel documents. Minors traveling with one parent, and/or without both parents, may be stopped and not admitted, unless authenticated and verified consent forms are provided to the authorities. Non-United States citizens may require additional documentation. See help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/268/kw/travel and check with your local embassy or consulate. The US Customs and Border Protection Agency requires that USA child groups under age 19 arriving by land or sea from contiguous territory and traveling with a school group, religious group, social or cultural organization, or sports team, may also present an original or copy of his or her birth certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or a Naturalization Certificate. Parental or legal guardian consent must be provided to the supervising adult/Group Leader.

INDIVIDUAL ENTRY AND EXIT REQUIREMENTS

Each foreign country holds different views of past criminal offenses, whether within or outside of their boundaries. If you have a current or past offense, and you are unsure how the country you are traveling to (or through) views that offense, please contact that country directly for entry and exit requirements. DESTINATION EUROPE ONLINE feels it is an invasion of privacy for any member of our staff to make such an inquiry. For example, if traveling to or through Canada, Americans with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) record should always check whether current rules exclude admission, and potential waivers. (See: www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/inadmissibility/index.asp)

HEALTH AND SECURITY REQUIREMENTS

It is each customer’s responsibility to make absolutely certain to have the proper immunizations and required documentation of such immunizations before travel, and to make the necessary accommodation for security rules imposed by government authorities. DESTINATION EUROPE ONLINE shall not assume responsibility for the accuracy of health requirements or vaccination and/or documentation prior to departure or upon landing at the final destination. See your health practitioner for advice. Prior to travel, required inoculations, if any, must be recorded by customer’s health practitioner on a valid vaccination certificate, which the customer must carry for proof of inoculation where required. If you are concerned about taking any medications or receiving certain inoculations, check with your health practitioner BEFORE booking. Check the USA State Department Web site travel.state.gov, for relevant information relating to travel to specific destinations, and the USA Centers for Disease Control www.cdc.gov/travel relating to health issues. For further information relating to security, safety issues, crime, the need for travel documentation (such as passports, visas, proof of health/vaccination certificates), health hazards, and other restrictions regarding travel to your domestic and/or international destination(s), and re-entry into the United States visit www.tsa.gov , www.dot.gov , www.faa.gov.us , www.ustreas.gov , www.cbp.gov Please note that USA rules regarding entry and exit change on a daily basis.

What our customers say

We wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your help with our recent vacation to Italy. It was simply a phenomenal trip! You put together a package which was exactly what we asked for ? organized activities coupled with ample free time to explore on our own, and smaller quaint (yet elegant) accommodations.

Anne & Tim

Our trip to Paris and Provence was even better than we had imagined. Once again we gave you short notice, but you came through for us with flying colors. Everything, transportation, hotel accommodations, day tours were excellent. This was our second trip with you planning all of the details, truly amazing!
