Site Usage and Ticket Purchase
In those situations in which a supplier defaults before providing services, you may pursue any recourse against the Supplier for a refund, which may be permitted by law or statute. SkyMed Travel warrants that it allows for the highest standards of service in the trade and will use appropriate care in selecting suppliers but cannot accept any responsibility from such default.
SKYMED TRAVEL and any of its affiliates assumes no responsibility for and shall not be liable for any refund, personal injury, property damage, or other loss, accident, delay, inconvenience, or irregularity which may be caused by: (1) any defaults, wrongful or negligent acts, or omissions of the Suppliers; (2) any defect in or failure of any vehicle, craft, equipment, or instrumentality owned, operated, or otherwise used or provided by the Suppliers; (3) any wrongful or negligent acts or omissions on the part of any other party not under SKYMED TRAVEL and any of its affiliates control; and (4) any Supplier price drop after your travel arrangements have been confirmed, paid in full, or ticketed. You hereby release SKYMED TRAVEL and any of its affiliates from all claims arising from any problem covered in this paragraph.
Travel arrangements involving airline and cruise components are subject to supplemental price increases that may be imposed by the Supplier and or government after you have completed your purchase. You hereby consent to any such price increases and authorize your credit or debit card to be used for them. Suppliers have their own contracts covering cancellation penalties and other terms and conditions, and that you may be bound by those contracts regardless of whether you receive notice of their terms. SkyMed Travel acts as a service bureau that provides value-added services to consumers. SkyMed Travel has no control over and assumes no liability for the actions of the suppliers from whom it obtains Travel products.

Once airline tickets and any document are issued, there may be a penalty involved for refunds that could result in a 100% loss of funds plus service fees. We do not have control over printed prices on airline tickets/documents. Some airline tickets may have I.T. or B.T. (Bulk fare) printed on them, and some may have a specific value on them, which may be different (lower or higher) than the airfare collected. Discounts offered may vary depending on several factors, including Airlines utilized, class of service, destination, time of year (low, mid, or high season), advance notice provided, minimum stay requirements fulfilled, and flight load.
A reservation is not complete until paid in full and documents and tickets issued. To protect our customers, we verify with the credit/debit card company that the billing address and credit card verification number you provided to us are accurate and that your debit/charge is accepted. We reserve the right to request further documentation for reservations or refuse to accept any booking that our system may flag as suspicious. Until all such information is verified, all fares/prices are subject to change. We are not responsible for any transaction not fulfilled due to a declined credit/debit card payment. Nor are we responsible for any changes in fare/rate or additional charges that may occur during the credit card verification process. There could be times when the fare selected is not available when completing a booking. An approval code for the cost could appear on the credit card and block your available credit for a short period, as dictated by the bank/credit card company. Airfares are not guaranteed until electronic tickets are issued. Prices and fares that require a deposit are not guaranteed until the Supplier receives the deposit.
SKYMED TRAVEL and any of its affiliates have no special knowledge regarding the financial condition of the Suppliers, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which you may travel.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, VISAS, AND PASSPORTS
All individuals visiting any foreign country must travel with a Government Issued Passport Book valid for six months or longer than your intended travel time. It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain and carry all required travel documentation, including but not limited to passports and visas, which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities at every destination and transit country. If you are traveling anywhere outside of the USA, including to Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico, you need a valid passport to board an international flight, cruise, and enter another country, and to return to your country. Because documentation requirements vary country by country, we strongly recommend that you contact the applicable Consulate(s) for the latest updates for documentation and laws for entering your destination and transiting country/countries. Any fines, penalties, payments, or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities will be your sole responsibility. Travelers traveling within the USA must have federally recognized and valid government-issued photo IDs, such as a passport, an Enhanced Driver's License, a tribal-issued photo ID, or an HSPD12 PIV card. A temporary driver's license is not an acceptable form of identification. However, depending on the State of departure or State of arrival, a passport may be required. For U.S. domestic travel, it is the travelers' responsibility to carry the proper valid identification as set out in by Transport Security Information requirements found here, https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification , non-US citizens may require additional documentation.
A child traveling with one parent or someone who is not a parent or legal guardian or a group will need extra paperwork, as explained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection here https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification . Also, visit the U.S. State Department's website for passport services and information. Passengers NOT in possession of valid international travel documents for the destination country and transit points will be unable to travel, and the total trip cost could be forfeited.
Rules of past criminal offenses may be applicable when visiting a foreign country, both within or outside their boundaries. Whether you have a current or past offense, contact the country you intend to travel to directly for entry and exit requirements. SkyMed Travel believes it is an invasion of privacy for any of our staff members to make this inquiry to our customers/travelers. You cannot enter Canada with a Driving While Intoxicated Record without a permit. The full details are on http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=143&top=8 .
Travel documents, including, without limitation, airline tickets, hotel vouchers, tour vouchers, cruise ship documents, or any other documentation, whether in electronic form or otherwise, are used to confirm an arrangement with a service provider. Travel documents may be subject to certain conditions and or restrictions such as, but not limited to, being non-refundable, non-date-changeable, and subject to cancellation and or amendment fees. Travel documents cannot be transferred to another person to use. All airline tickets must match the name of the passport/photo identity holder. An incorrect name on a booking may result in an inability to use that booking and can cancel. Any errors in names, dates, flight numbers, and timings may result in the inability to use that booking and can result in cancelation. Any errors in names, dates, and or any timings on your documentation will be your responsibility if not advised at the time of booking. Airlines make schedule changes, so please reconfirm flight times and flight numbers at least 48 hours before your departure.
