Travel Modern T&C

I understand that Travel Modern is not the source or supplier of the travel services I have requested and acts solely as an agent for the actual suppliers of such services.  I have been advised that the suppliers whose names appear in the information supplied to me are those who are actually responsible for providing the travel services I have purchased.  I consent to and request the use of those suppliers and agree not to hold Travel Modern responsible should any of these suppliers: 1) fail to provide the travel services I have purchased; 2) fail to comply with the applicable law; or 3) engage in any negligent act or omission that causes me any sort of injury, damage delay or inconvenience.

I understand that planning fees are based on Travel Modern booking hotels, that the hotel portion cannot be booked by the client.

I accept that Travel Modern is not responsible for, nor will I attempt to hold it liable for, any injury, damage or loss I may suffer on account of any conditions, actions or omissions that are beyond its reasonable control.

I further understand and acknowledge that travel to many parts of the world may involve the risk of a variety of hazards to my health and/or safety, including but not limited to disease, crime terrorism, and warfare.  Because each traveler’s risk tolerance is different,  Travel Modern  is not in a position to advise me whether I should travel to any particular place at any particular time.  Rather, to assist me in making an informed decision, I should refer to objective third-party sources of travel information, such as that maintained by the U.S. Department of state (

I will review my travel documents for accuracy upon receipt and understand that I may contact Travel Modern if I have any questions.  I understand that discounted fares typically involve restrictions and that changing any aspect of my travel arrangements may result in the payment of additional money.

I understand that for some destinations bundled rates are going to be how my quote is presented and that Travel Modern does not include component pricing.  

In case of complaints, the client must notify immediately the operator at the Emergency number noted on the final document in order to rectify the matter as soon as possible. If the client cannot rectify the matter, the travel advisor must notify the tour operator or hotel within 24 hours. No complaints of services rendered will be accepted after the client’s departure.  Clients who leave accommodations or parts of the program without prior notice cannot claim any refund for these.  

I have been advised to use a credit card as this may offer me the opportunity to dispute the charge should a vendor cease operating.

I understand that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) required me to carry a government-issued identification card in order to board a flight.  I have been advised that the name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on my airline ticket and in my booking records.  I acknowledge that my failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing me to miss my flights.  I further acknowledge that beginning on October 1, 2020, I must present a driver’s license or another form of identification that complies with the requirements of the Federal Real ID Act (see for more information).

I understand that if traveling internationally, I must have a valid passport and depending upon my destination and nationality, I may need to obtain one or more visas. I understand that in many countries, the US passport must be valid for 6 months prior to expiration.

Note to Client: Passport and visa information may be obtained by contacting The Travel Agent Section of the U.S. State Department at 202.647.5225 or by visiting the State Department’s website at  Non-US passport holders should be sure to contact the embassies of their destination and transit countries to obtain entrance requirements.  To obtain medical information, you may contact the Centers for Disease Control at 404.332.4559 or visit the CDC’s website at

I understand that I may purchase travel insurance to cover certain risks inherent in travel such as supplier bankruptcy and the inability to travel due to a medical or personal emergency.  I understand that  Travel Modern  reserves the right to charge a $250 rebooking fee. I understand that Travel Modern reserves the right to charge $75/hour for after hours and weekend work.
