TRAVELERS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS: You must advise Star Destinations, Inc. (SDI) at the time of registration of any disability requiring special attention. SDI will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the special needs of travelers. The Americans with Disabilities Act is applicable only in the U.S., and accommodations outside the U.S. may be more limited. Travelers requiring assistance are required to be accompanied by a companion who is capable of, and totally responsible for, providing the assistance. Neither SDI personnel nor its suppliers may lift or physically assist with travelers’ special needs including, but not limited to, walking, dining, or other routine activities. Travelers thinking they may need assistance should call SDI to determine what accommodations may reasonably be provided. Arrangements at an additional cost are the financial responsibility of the traveler.
TERMS & CONDITIONS: Star Destinations, Inc. (SDI) acts as an agent for suppliers such as airlines, hotels or activities to provide you with the travel services and accommodations. Although great care is taken in choosing suppliers, we are unable to control them and therefore cannot be held responsible or liable for their acts or omissions.

In addition, SDI reserves the right to vary the tour price advertised or printed to cover any increase in air fare, volatile fuel prices, government taxes and charges, exchange rate fluctuations, or other tour-related tariffs or newly announced travel costs. In the current travel environment, pricing may be increased due to unexpected requirements for health and safety of tour members. Due to infectious diseases, including COVID-19, destination areas may implement restrictions and requirements that may add additional costs beyond our control. Be aware that any public interaction carries a risk of exposure to infectious diseases. Travelers assume personal risk upon tour registration, and SDI cannot be held responsible in the event of infectious disease exposure. If you request a variation or change to your booking, SDI may choose to accept or reject that request. If accepted, you are responsible for any fees associated with it. If the minimum number of passengers required to operate the tour is not met, SDI reserves the right to cancel the tour.
It is the sole discretion of SDI to refuse transport to any passenger, or require any passenger to leave the tour, if it is reasonably believed that the passenger (1) is dangerous to others or to himself or herself; (2) is engaged in, or is threatening to engage in behavior that may adversely affect the safety, security, enjoyment, or well-being of other passengers, including behavior that is disruptive, verbally or physically abusive, obnoxious, harassing, or obscene; or (3) has failed or refused to follow SDI’s rules and procedures or the instructions of its representatives.
