Many of the problems for which we cannot be held responsible for can be insured against. We highly recommend that you take out insurance to provide adequate cover for medical expenses, personal accident, loss of baggage and curtailment or cancellation of trip. Individuals are responsible to finance on the spot medical treatment and other contingencies, and then to reclaim this from insurance, if covered. You will be required to provide documentation to the insurance company to facilitate a claim. Please note that there are exclusions to coverage of insurance. It is our responsibility to be familiar with the insurance coverage purchased and ensure that the coverage meets your travel needs.
Insurance has be purchased and paid for in full as soon as the booking is made to become fully effective.
Should you have any special requests, you must advise us at the time of the booking and clearly note it on booking. We will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests to the Service Provider; however, we regret that we cannot guarantee that your special request will be fulfilled. Failure to meet any special request does not signify a breach of contract on our part. We also regret that we cannot accept conditional bookings, ones that is specified to be conditional on the special request or fulfillment. All such bookings will be considered a "regular" booking with a provision of the possible accommodation of the special request.
Should you or any other persons of your party traveling have a medical problem or disability which may affect your choice and pleasure of holiday, please inform us prior to confirming your booking so that we can advise to the suitability of the chosen arrangements. In such an event, please provide us with the opportunity to assist you to ensure that your travel experience is not limiting by providing us full details of your medical problem or disability in writing. We are within our rights to cancel a booking if we deem the travel plans reasonably inappropriate for the traveler with a health problem or disability that hinders them from undertaking the trip or if we are made aware after the time of booking of details that were not provided at the time of booking.
To facilitate group bookings, we will endeavour to forward any group booking discounts provided by the Service Provider to you on the condition that one person represents the clients when making the booking arrangements and payments. In this case, confirmation of the booking and payment will be sent to him/her only. All payments for the booking are also to be made though him/her only.
Most of our booking fares are in CDN or US currency and we will state as such. All charges will be processed in either CDN or US dollars onto your credit card regardless the origin of your credit card. Please be aware that translating the booking fare into your home currency will always be approximate until charged on your credit card. Posted currency rates from various publicly sources should be used as a guideline only as rates are rarely verified as accurate and actual rates will vary. When using the information of the travel booking for any financial purpose, please consult a qualified professional to verify the accuracy of the currency rate.
All reference to departure times on our Web Sites are for your guidance and are subject by amendment by the wholesalers and/or suppliers prior to actual booking. It isn't until full payment has been made that the departure times are set. You must check your itinerary on each stage of the completion of the booking to ensure that you have the correct flight times. It is possible and that flight times will change even after tickets have been issued and you will be advised of such prior to departure provided your personal information is correct and up to date.

Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the Service Provider(s)' liability to you, usually in accordance with the applicable International Conventions.

As our client, we reasonably expect that you will respect and be considerate for other people while traveling. If you or any member of your party behaves in such a way that is deemed to be dangerous, upsetting, or distressful to a third party or damage to property, we or the Service Provider may terminate your travel plans of the person(s) concerned, without prior notice. Should this occur, the person(s) concerned will be required to cease continuing to travel on the booking made with us. We will have no further responsibility toward such person(s) including any return travel arrangements.

Corporate Traveller therefore cannot warrant that prices will not change and an increase must be borne and paid for upon demand either by Corporate Traveller, the airline, the tour operator or the supplier of the service until booking is paid in full.
Credit Card Chargeback: If for any reason, any travel service provider is unable to provide the service for which was contracted, your remedy lies against that provider and not with Corporate Traveller.

Visas & Passports: Please ensure that you have valid travel documentation and visa. A passport is the only reliable and universally accepted travel and identification document.

Other documentation requirements, including visas, will vary depending on citizenship status. Special documentation may be required for unaccompanied minors or children traveling without both parents.

Payment of your travel booking to us, as the Agent of the Service Provider, contracts you to the terms and conditions of the Service Provider.
