Terms and Conditions
Cancellations, changes, and exchanges:
All payments provided to Travel Gurus are non-refundable if cancelled at any time for all travel services provided by any airline, supplier or hotel.
Please be aware that most flight and travel bookings are non – refundable and non – re-routable and any changes or amendments to itinerary or passenger(s) details are either not permitted or will incur a penalty from the Airline, Service Provider, or Travel Gurus as prescribed from time to time.
By you acknowledging the Invoice, Itinerary, and these Terms and Conditions, Travel Gurus is hereby authorized by you to seek to recover any refunds/credits that may be available from Airline and other Service Providers from time to time.
Travel Gurus acts as a travel agent only. Many, if not all, of the services that make up your travel booking are provided by independent suppliers (“Service Providers”). 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.
Travel Gurus does not accept legal responsibility or liability for products and services of the service provider.
Visas & Passports:
It is your responsibility to have a valid passport, visa and/or other travel documentation. A passport is the only reliable and universally accepted travel and identification document. Using other documentation may result in delays or being denied boarding.
Traveling with your Child or Another’s:
Whether travelling alone or accompanied by an adult, each child must travel with his/her own travel documents, a passport and appropriate visa, plus supporting documentation: i.e. birth certificate showing the names of both parents and/or legal documents pertaining to custody. A Child Travel Consent Wavier is recommended for children travelling without their parents or one of their parents. Ask us if you need this form.

All passengers are asked to check in at least 2 hours for domestic and 3 hours for international prior to the scheduled time of departure of their flight. Please note that all travelers must be present with their boarding documents, passport and visas necessary for the destination. Due to enhanced security measures at all airports, we recommend commencing the airport check – in process at least 3 hours prior to departure. Any passenger arriving late for check-in will be denied boarding.
Please note that additional airport fees (departure tax), hotel local taxes, car rental local taxes and local government taxes (other than sales tax) may not be included in your ticket price. These are frequently collected at destination. We do our best to insure you have this information when you book but sometimes we may miss a detail or new local taxes get implemented.
Travel Insurance is recommended in particular for both out of province medical and cancellation coverage. Please refer to our recommended insurers’ brochures for full details and conditions. If the Invoice does not note that Insurance has been purchased or the Insurance Policy Number is not noted on the Itinerary then you have elected to DECLINE travel insurance. Please insure you read your insurance policy carefully and understand it as Travel Gurus will not be able to guarantee coverage or advise on insurance claims.
