Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions:
Any person reserving a Christian Tours Europe (“CTE”) tour accepts the condition that CTE reserves the exclusive right to change tour itineraries, hotels, and other tour components whenever it is deemed necessary, although tours are planned and hotels are booked with all possible care. Published times in our itineraries are as accurate as possible and subject to change due to traffic, weather, mechanical, and any other conditions that prevent CTE from operating under normal conditions. CTE cannot accept liability in the case of any passenger being denied boarding by any airline carrier due to carrier’s over-booking of a flight, nor does it accept liability in the case of a cancelled or delayed flight. It shall be the passenger’s responsibility solely to provide the means to join a missed tour that is already in progress. In the event that any dispute arises in which any party has a right to assert a claim, the exclusive jurisdiction for that claim shall be in a court of competent jurisdiction located in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany. The tour is operated exclusively under German law.

Christian Tours Europe, Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany acts only as an agent for all suppliers of service offered on this tour and does so upon the express condition and agreement that it shall not be liable for any injury, loss, damage, accident, delay, irregularity, or expense arising from strikes, war, weather, quarantines, sickness, government restrictions or regulations, from any act or omission of any individual, firm or corporation furnishing transportation, sightseeing, hotel accommodations, or any service in connection with such travel plan, or from any other cause whatsoever in connection therewith.

Transportation for one full-sized suitcase is included. For extra luggage, an additional $30.00 per bag will be assessed. There is no charge for an additional carry-on bag, which must fit under your seat or in the overhead rack and for which you will be responsible. Although every effort is made to handle passengers‘ luggage as carefully as possible, Christian Tours Europe cannot be responsible, assume liability, or accept claims for loss or damage to luggage due to breakage, theft, or fair wear and tear through hotel and group carrier handling.

Travel requirements and insurance:
For U.S. and Canadian citizens, a valid passport is all that is required. Participants are responsible for all visa, health, and passport regulations. Please check your medical insurance for overseas coverage. It is recommended that participants purchase trip insurance to cover health, trip cancellation or delay, and loss of baggage. Should you desire such insurance, please mark that on your registration form; the registrar will mail an offer for trip insurance to you.

All necessary tips, such as maid, doorperson, and dining room tips for meals specified in the itinerary and the customary gratuity to escorts, drivers and step-on guides are included. Tips for beverages and drinks are not included; if you wish, such appreciation may be extended on a voluntary and individual basis.

Physical activities:
Physical activities are part of the tour. You should be in good health, able to climb stairs (sometimes many) without assistance and to walk at a modest pace for more than a mile at a time. Christian Tours Europe requires all handicapped or disabled clients requiring special assistance to be accompanied by a responsible paying adult and that Christian Tours Europe must be notified, in advance, of this special required assistance.

Regardless of reasons, cancellations result in a costly process of letters, toll calls, adjustments, refunds, etc. plus a loss if time does not permit resale. To offset these costs, fees apply. In fairness to others, we cannot make exceptions.

Notification of double/single occupancy and the names of the participants should be received two months in advance. The travel group is responsible for the payment of any single room supplements required due to an odd number of participants of either gender requesting double occupancy.
