The vacation packages are prepared months in advance, and sometimes one of the advertised services or locations is modified or not available. On occasion after your booking is confirmed, we may have to make changes to the services that are part of the package. Most often this will be minor, however we may have to make a Major Change before you depart. Major Change includes:

If Voyages Hub is obliged to downgrade the accommodation, and you accept that offered change, Voyages Hub will provide you with a partial refund. We reserve the right to change our published prices without notice and to pass on to you all government imposed taxes, transportation fees and surcharges, including fuel and currency fluctuations.

Pandemic Implications: please note that certain overseas travel arrangements may be affected as a result of the Pandemics. This could include an unavailability of certain flight routes, access to certain ports and airports etc. Please rest assured that this is something we will continue to monitor and will advise our customers as soon as possible if we become aware of any confirmed bookings that will be affected. However, since this is something which is completely unprecedented and outside our control, we would treat any such changes as Force Majeure, and whilst we will endeavour to provide suitable alternative arrangements or credits or refunds where possible, we will not be liable to pay you any compensation..
Travel documents and tickets, joining and departure details, supplier addresses and phone contacts will be sent upon receipt of final payment. Airline tickets contain conditions as well as the terms of carriage. Please read these conditions carefully as they affect your legal rights

Voyages Hub offers a choice of airlines and airfares for your convenience, but is not responsible for the services and policies imposed by the airline selected. Airline schedules and flights are subject to change without notice. Voyages hub is not responsible for penalties incurred for tickets, international or domestic, not issued by Voyages hub due to schedule and/or flight changes.
Do not book flights until you have received a personalized confirmation email from our reservations team which will be within 24 hours of receiving your online booking. We endeavor to display accurate availability on our website, though on rare occasions online bookings are made concurrently with others and our website can not reflect this information
Airline Contact Information: Pursuant to Airline regulations, passengers are responsible to provide Voyages hub with their name as it appears on their passport (or other government-issued I.D. when traveling), date of birth, gender, address, phone number, email and fax data for all passengers. Passengers must ensure that names are correctly listed on their invoice. Voyages hub will not be responsible for passengers who do not receive an invoice or documents or are denied boarding due to inaccurate information.
Airline Name Changes: Any name change including minor spelling corrections may require airline reservations to be cancelled and re-booked. Reservations are subject to current availability and pricing at the time of rebooking. Once airline tickets are issued, subsequent name corrections will be subject to an airline rebooking fee which may be as much as the full value of the airline ticket plus a $50 revision fee per change. Voyages Hub will not be held responsible for the denial of services by a carrier due to any name discrepancy. Name changes must be advised in writing.
Airline Taxes & Surcharges: If you purchased airfare, airline taxes and surcharges are included. Prior to completion of full payment there is a potential for a price increase(s) due to increases in government-levied taxes and fees and/or increased surcharges. To avoid potential increases, you may choose to accelerate your final payment in order that your tickets may be issued. Once issued, airline tickets are no longer subject to potential increases but are fully non-refundable. Certain overseas domestic flights are subject to air taxes which can only be paid locally; in these cases, the specific flights and amounts of those taxes will be indicated in our final documents
Airline Tickets: Once full payment is received, airline tickets will be issued and are fully non-refundable. Should airline tickets require to be issued earlier than the Final Payment Due date, you may be required to pay a larger non-refundable deposit and/or complete full payment. Once issued, some Published Instant Purchase Airfare tickets may be changed prior to the departure date and the airfare applied toward travel within 12 months of the original date of issue for a fee of $200 or more plus any difference in airfare; however, some tickets are non-changeable; specific fees and policies may vary by airline. Please note that some airlines do not accept all major credit cards for payment of Published Instant Purchase Airfare.
Airline Seat Assignments: As a courtesy service, airline seat assignments are requested on your behalf and are displayed in order of Passenger #1, #2 and so on. Assignments reflect the best available seats at the time of booking. Some airlines and/or fare types do not allow for pre-seating and require this be done at airport check-in only; in this case, the display shows “N/A”. Seats are subject to change by your airline(s) including, for example, when there is a schedule change or equipment change after your initial booking; this may cause seat assignments to be changed or even cancelled. In the event that you change seat assignments directly with your airline, changes will not be reflected on this display. At the time that Voyages hub documents are issued, the currently assigned seats will be listed based on the assignments stored in your airline reservation at that time. Should you have questions regarding your assignments, please write to us
Airline Frequent Flier Programs: Passengers are responsible to contact their airline directly regarding mileage eligibility and accrual. Airline frequent flier programs determine whether to award miles in part or total based on their own rules which are updated frequently. Some discounted or promotional airfares as well as some code-share flights are not eligible for mileage accrual. Some private airfares, such as a “Voyages Hub Airfare”, are not eligible for mileage or may qualify for reduced mileage, even if the same airline class of service is eligible for full mileage when sold as an “Instant Purchase” published airfare. Not all published airfares are eligible for mileage. Voyages hub will record frequent flier numbers when provided by the passenger prior to travel documents being issued. However, the addition of frequent flier numbers to airline records does not guarantee mileage eligibility which is at the sole discretion of each airline. Airline schedule changes may result in flights which were originally eligible for mileage accrual no longer being eligible. We highly recommend passengers to provide their frequent flier account information whenever checking in online and/or at the airport check-in desk. After travel has commenced, it is often not possible to apply for frequent mileage credit. Passengers are also responsible to determine whether previously earned mileage may be applied to flights to secure upgrades.
Airline Schedule Changes: In the event of an airline schedule change, Voyages Hub will make every effort to inform passengers of the schedule change and new flight schedule prior to departure. Voyages Hub is not responsible for schedule changes including, when applicable, changes in routing and/or the number of stops in the itinerary. Voyages Hub is unable to provide compensation for schedule changes, seat assignment modifications, or cancellations implemented by an airline. In the event of any change in flight itinerary made directly between passengers and their airline, it is the passenger’s responsibility to advise Voyages Hub of amended flight details in writing. Voyages Hub cannot be held responsible for land services, including arrival and/or departure transfers, if flights are changed without its knowledge.
Airline Baggage: Checked bags are typically limited to a total dimension of 62 inches by adding length + width + height (example: 26″+26″+10″ = 62”), and a maximum weight of 50 lbs (23kg). Smart Bags with a USB charging port, GPS tracking device and other high-tech features are prohibited as checked or carry-on baggage unless the bag is made with removable batteries and the batteries are removed and stored separately. For specific requirements of your airline and for a complete list of fees, please visit individual airline website for more information. Many airlines apply charges for checked bags including flights which begin and end within the USA. Voyages Hub avoids the most inexpensive airfare options commonly known as Basic Economy airfares which typically do not include any checked bags nor seat assignments before the day of departure. However, for some airlines, other airfare categories also do not include checked baggage. This will be clearly displayed in our airfare selection and on your invoice. Where available, we highly recommend selecting airfares which include at least 1 piece of checked baggage. Voyages hub is not responsible for checked bag fees, excess luggage or weight charges levied by an airline. Checked baggage allowances displayed on reservation details and invoices reflect the applicable allowance at the time of booking but are subject to change by your airline(s). If your luggage is lost or damaged by the airlines, a baggage claim form must be filed with the carrier before leaving the airport
ROOM OCCUPANCY POLICY
Advertised prices are based on maximum occupancy. Rooms may consist of any combination of the following, based on occupancy: one king sized bed, one queen sized bed, one double sized bed, two queen sized beds, two double beds, a pull-out couch, a roll-away bed or a single bed. Upon booking the Trip, should you not provide the names of desired roommates, Voyages Hub Tours Inc. may match you with other passengers based on the chosen occupancy. Voyages Hub Tours Inc. is not in any way liable for injury, loss or damage as a result of roommate matching. Single and double room upgrades are available at an additional cost.
All rooms are standard King or Queen or twin-bedded (two single beds) rooms with private facilities, unless you have specifically requested and paid for an upgraded room category. Room selection in all cases, unless otherwise reserved, is strictly at the discretion of the hotel’s management on a run-of-house basis. Special requests such as bed types, smoking preference and connecting rooms are subject to availability. Triple rooms consist of standard twin beds or one double bed plus a sofa/folding bed or cot for third person except in the U.S. and Canada, where triple rooms often consist of two double/queen beds for three persons; a fee may be charged by the hotel for the addition of a cot/rollaway. Some single rooms are smaller than a standard room size. The number of persons accommodated does not dictate the room size. Although available at most 4 and 5 star hotels, use of air-conditioning abroad differs greatly from the United States. Many European and Canadian hotels were built before central air-conditioning was introduced. Air-conditioning is often shut down at night and from the end until the start of the summer months. All hotel rates are based on Voyages Hub agreements with its suppliers and are not negotiable. Hotel check-in time is generally not before 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon. Please be sure that adequate arrangements for accommodations have been taken into consideration when a late night flight is being used. If a day room is included in the itinerary, check-out will normally be 6:00 p.m. We reserve the right to make substitutions with hotels of equal standard. There will be no refunds for any difference in the cost of those accommodations.
Transfers are provided as indicated for each tour by car, minibus, or motor coach provided airfare is purchased from Voyages Hub. If you purchase a land-only tour, or if you deviate from the arrival and/or departure dates as stated in the itinerary, you will have the option to add transfer services to your reservation. Your arrival transfer is guaranteed for up to one hour from your scheduled arrival time in order to compensate for minor delays. Voyages hub or the transfer company will not be responsible for flight delays, for any reason, beyond one hour from your originally scheduled arrival time. In case of a delay, whether due to flight delay, immigration and customs, or time spent reporting baggage damage or loss, it will be your responsibility to make other transfer arrangements such as a taxi. Transfer costs are not refundable and any additional expenses will be your responsibility. The cost of a transfer is more expensive than hiring a taxi, as a Voyages Hub transfer necessarily includes round trip service, or ‘dead-leg’, meaning that our driver must come to the airport, hotel or pier only to pick you up and necessarily loses a one-way fare. Often the places of call (airports, seaports, hotels) demand entrance and parking fees, where drivers may have to wait for up to an hour. Voyages Hub transfer drivers, while not employees of Voyages Hub, are reliable and work year-round for Voyages Hub clients. They provide you with a full welcome service, transfer you to the correct location and are prepared to answer your questions along your ride. Passengers comfortable hiring a taxi on their own and do not require assistance will save money.
