We may disclose personal information even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, to the extent we feel is necessary to inform and cooperate with law enforcement agencies or other appropriate authorities.
f) In aggregated form, i.e., information about multiple users collectively without identifying any individual user, such as the total number of visitors to the Site in a given week.

Included in Tour Price:
Every thing listed in the package page "Travel Packages". When meals are included waiter's tips and taxes are also included.
Included in Tour Costs:
Laundry, valet, telephone calls, wines and liquors other than those specified. Purely personal expenses, tips to guides, drivers and Tour Directors.
Insurance: We strongly recommend the purchase of personal accident, trip cancellation and luggage insurance, which although seldom used, is well worth the small expense. Latin-Travels, not being an insurance company, cannot accept the responsibility for accidents, or trip cancellations for even the most unfortunate or documented reasons, or the safe handling of your luggage. All three categories of insurance may be obtained from your travel agent or Latin-Travels.
Reservations and Deposits: Formal confirmation will only be made upon receipt of full payment for the tour.
Cancellations: A cancellation fee will be charged for all cancellations, regardless of the reason or accompanying documentation. Charges will be assessed as follows:
60 days or more before the tour date = 100% refund, less a service fee of $50.00 per person or 5% of the cost of such tour, whichever is greater.
50-60 days before the tour date = 85% refund of the total cost of such tour.
40-49 days before the tour date = 75% refund of the total cost of such tour.
31-39 days before the tour date = 65% refund of the total cost of such tour.
30 days or less before the tour date 50% refund of the total cost of such tour.
For any person failing to appear on day of departure there will be no refund. All cancellations must be made in writing and mailed to Latin-Travels, Inc. 95East161st Street, 3rd Floor, Bronx, New York 10451 or e-mail to Cancellations@Latin-Travels.com. The date we receive your cancellation notice is considered the effective date of the cancellation notice.
Personally Escorted Tour Operation: Scheduled escorted tours must normally be operated with at least twenty-five participants. Should Latin-Travels cancel a scheduled tour because the number of participants is less than twenty-five, we will attempt to provide at least fifteen days notice prior to departure. Individual passengers, joining scheduled tours on which airfare is not included, must be aware, said tours may be canceled 15 days prior to departure; and therefore must accept full responsibility for holding reservations and/or tickets on an airline beyond their outlined penalty clauses.
Booking Changes: Once formal reservations have been made any changes to the original booking record, (not date or tour or cost), will be assessed a $50.00 per person administrative charge. Changes (not to date of tour or cost) in previously booked tours, will only be accepted up to one week prior to departure. Within one week of departure, if the change can be accommodated, there will be a $100.00 per person charge.
Membership: Latin-Travels reserves the right to remove a passenger from any tour if that passenger's actions or condition disrupts or threatens to disrupt the tour; or if said passenger willingly disregards the regulations of participation as outlined in the General Information; or when the safety of the other passengers is threatened by actions or conditions of that passenger. In the event of such cancellation, Latin-Travels' liability shall be limited to a refund for any unused portion of the tour.
International Travel Requirements: In order to enter or leave The Dominican Republic, all U.S. citizens must present either a valid passport, a birth certificate or voter registration card. A driver's license does not constitute proof of citizenship. Prior to booking, non-citizens should contact U.S. and Dominican Republican authorities to determine visa requirements for entry into Dominican Republic and reentry into the United States. Latin-Travels will not be liable for any costs incurred by individuals who are refused entry by immigration authorities because of improper or insufficient documentation. There will be no guarantee of refund of any portion of the tour in such instances.
Departures: Please see the individual itineraries for departure and return locations.
Management and Responsibility-These tours are under the management of Latin-Travels, Inc. Of New York, New York. Latin-Travels acts only as agent for the passenger and therefore, accepts no responsibility in whole or part for any delays, delayed departure or arrival, missed connections, loss, damage or injury to person or property, or mechanical defect or failure, of any nature, howsoever caused, or for any substitution of hotels or of common carrier equipment beyond their control with or without notice, or for any additional expense occasioned thereby. No carrier shall have, or incur, any responsibility or liability to any person taking this tour, except its liability as a common carrier. All transportation and services are subject to the laws of the country and locality in which they are provided. Rates quoted are based on tariffs and exchange rates current at time of printing and are subject to changes therein at or before time of final payment. No revisions of the printed itinerary or its included features are anticipated; however, the right is reserved to make any changes with or without notice that might become necessary, with the mutual understanding that any additional expenses will be paid by the individual passenger.
