TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING TSA AND DHS ACCEPTABLE IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS. It is the responsibility of each Customer to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s) and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. When traveling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry at least two forms of acceptable identification in order to board a flight found http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. Examples: DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, USA Passport, a foreign government passport. The name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records. Andrew Harper strongly recommends that you take into account that certain countries will not admit a passenger, if their passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Non-United States citizens may require additional documentation. Children and infants also require all such travel documents. Minors traveling with one parent, and/or without both parents, may be stopped and not admitted, unless authenticated and verified consent forms are provided to the authorities, please see https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/268/kw/travel. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency requires that for USA child groups under age 19 arriving by land or sea from contiguous territory and traveling with a school group, religious group, social or cultural organization, or sports team, may also present an original or copy of his or her birth certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad or a Naturalization Certificate. Parental or legal guardian consent must be provided to the supervising adult/Group Leader. You acknowledge that any failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing Customer to miss flight(s), and subsequent scheduled travel bookings on cruises and tours. Check each supplier’s website to ensure you and all members in your travel group or party obtain and carry travel documentation required.
INDIVIDUAL ENTRY AND EXIT REQUIREMENTS. Each foreign country holds different views of past criminal offenses, whether within or outside of their boundaries. If you have a current or past offense, and you are unsure how the country you are traveling to (or through) views that offense, please contact that country directly for entry and exit requirements (see: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_4965.html) We feel it is an invasion of privacy for any member of our staff to make such an inquiry. For example, if traveling to or through Canada, Americans with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) record should always check whether current rules exclude admission, and potential waivers (see: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/inadmissibility/index.asp).
RISKS/SAFETY. Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Andrew Harper urges customers to remain informed on a daily basis as to current news, as well as to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at http://www.state.gov, http://www.tsa.gov, http://www.dot.gov, http://www.faa.gov, http://www.cdc.gov, and http://www.cbp.gov. The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so that the Department of State can better assist you in an emergency. Registration is recommended and provided by going to https://step.state.gov/step/

SELLER OF TRAVEL. ANDREW HARPER is a registered seller of travel in California, CST 2110806-40. (Registration as a seller of travel in California does not constitute the state’s approval.) The California Seller of Travel law requires sellers of travel to have a trust account or bond. Andrew Harper maintains a trust account for all client payments and deposits.
PAYMENTS AND CANCELLATION. Final payment is due prior to departure according to each supplier’s (airline, hotel, cruise line, transfer company, sightseeing operators and other travel service vendors) terms and conditions involved in your travel booking. If final and full payment is not received by the applicable due date, reservations are subject to cancellation and deposits shall be forfeited. In some cases there is NO REFUND once a booking is made and paid for. Your right to a refund if you change or cancel your travel plans is limited. All cancellation requests must be sent to Andrew Harper in writing. As a result of cancellation, Andrew Harper’s and third-party supplier’s cancellation penalties will apply, which are detailed in your travel documentation, this website and each supplier’s websites. Cancellation penalties are advised at time of booking and provided to you upon confirmation. If you have any questions, or any penalties are unclear, please contact your Andrew Harper advisor. All cancellation fees will be charged to the credit card you authorized to pay for travel services, or deducted from the supplier’s refund.
AIR, CHECK-IN, SCHEDULE RECONFIRMATION. UNLESS SET FORTH IN WRITING, AIRLINE RESERVATIONS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR TRAVEL PLANS. In such event, it is the Customer’s responsibility to make appropriate air arrangements, as well as transportation to and from the destination where the travel booking originates and returns. Andrew Harper shall not assume any responsibility for any air and/or ground schedule changes. In rare instances, upon departure from a country, certain departure taxes must be paid in cash only, and may vary in price. Due to enhanced security, it is strongly recommended that you check in a minimum of 2 hours prior to scheduled departure for domestic flights and 3 hours prior to scheduled departure time for international flights. Reconfirm flight times at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure time for domestic flights, and 72 hours prior for international flights. Failure to use a reservation may result in automatic cancellation of all continuing and return flights, as well as forfeiture of airfares.
LATE BOOKINGS. Prospective customers are advised to reserve early to avoid disappointment and additional late booking fees.
NO REFUND FOR UNUSED ARRANGEMENTS. As Andrew Harper’s prices are based on contract rates, there will not be any refund for any unused portion of a travel booking. Some group tours are based on minimum numbers of passengers traveling; if the number of passengers falls below the minimum required, a surcharge may be imposed or the tour canceled.
POTENTIAL PRICE INCREASE DISCLOSURE & CONSENT. Andrew Harper will make every effort to honor the price as originally quoted, however; under certain circumstances additional costs by a supplier or government may be imposed due to an increase in the cost for one or more of the travel components. PRIOR TO FULL PAYMENT, prices including U.S. air transactions or air tours (in, to or from the U.S.) could increase for certain travel services, including the following: a seat, carriage of passenger baggage, applicable fuel surcharge or an increase in a government-imposed tax or fee. U.S. air transaction or air tour prices will not increase AFTER MAKING FULL PAYMENT, except for charges resulting from government-imposed taxes or fees. Certain suppliers reserve the right to increase prices to cover increased costs, fuel surcharges, tariffs and taxes, and to reflect fluctuations in foreign exchange markets. Customer expressly acknowledges acceptance of these conditions applicable to purchase and authorizes Andrew Harper to charge Customer’s credit card for such additional amounts. This consent applies to all travel arranged by Andrew Harper for Customer that includes such scheduled air transportation, and may be revoked at any time with respect to future travel for which Customer has not yet made payment. Five (5) years following the date of execution, this consent expires.
CURRENCY FLUCTUATIONS. Currency exchange rates fluctuate. Prices are subject to change based upon currency exchange rate fluctuations, provided actual variations have occurred.
ALTERATIONS TO CONFIRMED BOOKINGS.

The transportation, accommodations and other services provided by the identified sea, ground and air operator suppliers offered are subject to the terms and conditions contained in the tickets, exchange orders or vouchers issued by them and/or their suppliers, including Terms and Conditions on their respective Websites.

Please note that we have the ability to retain any data that you provide on this Site, even if you do not complete your transaction by clicking checkout. Such contact details and data may be used to contact you via email to inquire why you did not complete your transaction. The information we learn from customers helps us personalize your shopping experience and continually improve how you shop at AndrewHarper.com (or derivations thereof). Here are the types of information we gather:
- Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores and communicating with you.
- Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses AndrewHarper.com (or derivations thereof). Should you choose to disable cookies, we may not be able to provide you with a fully personalized experience at AndrewHarper.com. Though we may not be able to recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
- E-mail Communications: To help us make your shopping experience more effective, we will ask you for your email address to confirm orders placed and shipping confirmations. If you choose to omit this information from your registration and/or address information, please be aware that you may not receive important communications regarding orders placed and shipped.
- Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser.
- The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of AH.com’s features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Information about our customers, including you, is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and are subjected to our Privacy Notice.Agents:
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. Those vendors may have access to your personal information needed to perform their respective functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
- Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries or business units. In such transactions, your customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that we, or substantially all of our assets are acquired, your customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
- Protection of Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms, and other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
- With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
We strive to offer visitors a secure and safe environment for all credit card purchases. The shopping and fulfillment services at this Site are operated by a third-party affiliate that is equally concerned about your privacy. Your personally identifiable information entered while shopping is used only to complete your transaction and is never revealed to others or used for any purpose not authorized by you. Credit card information provided to buy merchandise is used solely to determine that your card is valid, that sufficient credit is available to pay for the purchase and to apply the cost of your purchase to your card when the items are shipped. Credit card information you provide is transmitted across the Internet securely using encryption. Some versions of browsers and firewalls do not permit connection to secure servers. In such cases, you will not be able to connect to the server and won't be able to place an order through a secure connection.Accessible Information
