HEALTH AND SAFETY TIPS FOR TRAVELERS - As you are about to embark on a foreign vacation, there are certain things of which you need to be aware. We strongly recommends that you visit the portion of United States Department of States' website, which deals with foreign travel. Specifically, you should read tips on foreign travel and travel warnings for the country or countries you plan to visit. Although foreign travel is exciting and rewarding, you must keep in mind that you are not traveling in the United States and extra caution is required to make your trip happy and successful. Just a few of the issues you need to be aware of are: medical standards and training of emergency responders and resort medical facilities vary greatly. If you have medical issues or concerns about medical services, Go Classy Tours urges you to contact the particular property, as health care abroad may not be the same as you might expect at home. Sports and aquatic equipment, especially scuba gear, may not meet U.S. safety standards and many resort pools and beaches may lack lifeguards. Balcony railing heights in Mexico are lower than the mandated heights in the United States, and also may be lower in other countries. Low balcony railings create a risk of falls, which may result in serious injury or death. Bottled drinking water is recommended. In tropical climates, we strongly recommend the use of insect repellent, especially during rainy season.

However, since these requests lie outside ourcontrol we cannot guarantee special requests unless otherwise stated.

TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN - Infants under two years of age may fly and stay free, but must sit on an adult's lap and do not receive a separate baggage allowance. If an infant reaches the age of two any time during the vacation, federal law requires the purchase of a separate seat for any remaining portions of the flight. Some scheduled airlines may charge for infants, including air-related taxes, and some countries charge infant departure taxes. Any such charges by independent suppliers or governments are the responsibility of the client. Restrictions may apply to "Kids Stay, Play and Eat FREE" programs and most hotels require that children must be accompanied by full-paying adults and pay airfare. Policies vary by individual hotels. Hotels may check the passports of children at check-in to verify they qualify for any discounted child room rate. At select hotels, a single parent traveling with up to two or three children (varies by hotel) is not charged the single supplement. The hotels reserve the right to collect the single supplement in resort, or cancel any extra room upon arrival, if the promotional policy is not used in the manner for which it was intended. Restrictions apply.
