ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES: The ESIGN Act is a federal law passed in 2000. It grants legal recognition to electronic signatures and records if all parties to a contract choose to use electronic documents and to sign them electronically.

 

UETA, a precursor to the ESIGN Act, was introduced in 1999 and has been adopted by 47 U.S. states, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Among other things, UETA provides that when a law requires either a writing or a signature, an electronic record or an electronic signature can satisfy that requirement when the parties to the transaction have agreed to proceed electronically.

 

UETA and the ESIGN Act solidified the legal landscape for use of electronic records and electronic signatures in commerce by confirming that electronic records and signatures carry the same weight and have the same legal effect as traditional paper documents and wet ink signatures.* Both laws provide the following:

No contract, signature, or record shall be denied legal effect solely because it is in electronic form

A contract relating to a transaction cannot be denied legal effect solely because an electronic signature or record was used in its formation

 

***The law for electronic signatures in most countries spells out certain types of documents or document categories for which electronic signatures are not appropriate. Each customer should work with legal counsel to identify categories of exclusion in the relevant country, but common categories of exclusion are wills and trusts, powers of attorney, and declarations given under oath.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY: eBiz Travel has the exclusive right to include photographic, video and other visual portrayals of Passenger in any pictorial medium of any nature whatsoever for trade, advertising, sales, publicity or otherwise, without compensation to Passenger, and all rights, title, and interest therein (including all worldwide copyrights therein) shall be eBiz Travel sole property, free from any claims by Passenger or any person deriving any rights or interest from Passenger. eBiz Travel will not disclose your name online or in printed media without additional expressed written consent.

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE: We encourage all passengers to take out adequate travel insurance coverage to protect themselves against cancellation due to illness before or during travel. In the event of a traveler becoming ill during a tour, all hospital and medical expenses are the traveler’s responsibility and they shall not be entitled to any refund, either total or partial, of passage money paid. A typical travel insurance policy will have coverage for trip cancellations, medical emergencies, travel delays, and lost luggage. Most policies are built to be comprehensive to protect travelers from a variety of events that may cause a financial loss before or during a trip. eBiz Travel suggests it’s travelers to include a medical insurance policy that includes (1) Emergency Medical Coverage, (2) Emergency Medical Evacuation, and (3) Repatriation of your remains should you perish when purchasing travel insurance. All travelers will be offered insurance, at additional cost on the registration form. eBiz Travel will not be held responsible for losses to travelers who decline. FYI: CANCEL ANYTIME INSURANCE may have to be purchased on the day you pay your trip deposit.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS: Passenger Travel Documents, including e-ticket itineraries, are available approximately 2-3 weeks prior to departure, provided full invoice payment, emergency contact details, and passport/government issues ID information (when required) has been received.

On overnight ferries, single cabins may not be available or are limited and singles may be asked to share.

 

**Room and bed preferences are not guaranteed.

 

Air-conditioning in hotels is not guaranteed and dependent upon local and national laws and regulations. Though hotels may have air-conditioning as a listed amenity, the usage of air-conditioning is often not available at night or in the off-season (October–May). Other restrictions may apply. eBiz Travel has no control over air-conditioning restrictions and regulations.

 

In the rare event that included train or air services are unavailable, alternate services will be provided. Itinerary timings are approximate and are subject to change.

 

Hotels may impose a 100% non-smoking policy. If you require a smoking room, a request may be submitted, but we cannot guarantee availability. All requests are to be submitted to info@ebiztravel.net

 

AIRLINES: eBiz Travel is not responsible for the services and policies that are imposed by the airlines. eBiz Travel is not responsible for canceled flights, penalties incurred for tickets internationally, or domestic. There will be times when the airlines will demand full and immediate issuance of tickets that will be issued on a later date. If this is the case, eBiz Travel will require immediate and full payment due. If a traveler does not remit full payment, the airline may cancel your flight and may not be able to rebook you on the same flight or the same airfare. If this should happen, it is the SOLE responsibility of the travel to rebook your flight. eBiz Travel will do its best to use major carriers, if discount carriers are used all travelers will be notified.

 

Once airline tickets are paid in full eBiz Travel will be issued airline tickets for each traveler. The ticket will be non-refundable. In the event the airline requires the issuance of tickets before the final payment due date, you may be required to pay a larger non-refundable deposit and/or complete full payment.

 

Airline's bare sole responsibility for seat assignment. The traveler will be asked which seat they prefer on eBiz Travels’ registration form and that information will be provided to the airline. Passengers are not entitled to seats requested. eBiz Travel contracts for economy class seating. If you can purchase a different air class or contact eBiz Travel for assistance.

 

AIRLINE FREQUENT FLYER PROGRAMS & HOTEL REWARDS PROGRAMS: Frequent Flyer mileage accrual is at the discretion of the airline(s), and is not always granted for airfare purchased through eBiz Travel. You will need to contact the airline(s) directly for information on Frequent Flyer programs and any applicable reward mile accrual. eBiz Travel cannot assist with this process. Cancellation penalties, as noted above, will apply to all airfare, regardless of accrual grants. Take this into consideration before purchasing airfare.

 

HOTEL REWARDS/POINTS: cannot be earned or redeemed with hotels used by eBiz Travel.

 

AIRLINE TAXES AND FUEL SURCHARGES: Airline taxes and fuel surcharges are included in the price of your airline ticket. There are times, before full payment of your airline ticket, there may be an increase in government-levied taxes and fees and/or fuel surcharges. If you would like to avoid the possibility of an increase in price you may want to consider accelerating your final payment which would result in your air ticket being issued. Once your airline ticket is issued you are no longer subject to air taxes. For more detailed information always review the airline's policy on airline taxes and fuel surcharges.

 

REVISIONS & REVISION FEES: In addition to any airline-imposed change fees, a fee of $50 per person domestic & $100 international, will be charged by eBiz Travel for any alteration or revision made to a reservation after deposit is received. Any revision to a booking, including, but not limited to, flight cancellations or name changes, may result in the loss of confirmed airline reservations or increased airfare, which will be payable by you. In some instances, airline revision or change fees are up to $300, but in some instances may be up to 100% the ticket price. Instant Purchase Air and associated service fees are non-refundable and non-changeable after 24 hours from purchase; thus, alterations or revisions to a booking with Instant Purchase Air will require new air to be purchased, and is subject to full payment, as above.

 

Intra-vacation/country air and hotel penalties may also apply to alterations or revisions to a booking and may be up to 100% of the full price.

 

A change of traveler name, vacation date, or itinerary within the final payment will be treated as a full cancellation and new reservation; vacation and airfare cancellation fees, as above, apply.

 

Airlines generally charge fees for name changes, including minor spelling corrections. There may be a time when the reservation will be canceled due to these changes. Any fees charged by the airlines are the responsibility of the passenger. Additionally, passengers will be subject to eBiz Travels’ name change policy. If you have a name change, please contact eBiz Travel via email. info@ebiztravel.net
