Health & Safety Tips for Travelers
We strongly recommend that you visit the U.S. Department of State website travel.state.gov, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website, cdc.gov, which include important information on foreign travel such as travel advisories, warnings and restrictions issued by the U.S. government. You are responsible for complying with the health requirements of the countries you intend to visit. Check with your physician regarding any immunizations that may be recommended or required. Use common sense while vacationing abroad. For example, if you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. In addition, be cognizant of the effects of mixing alcohol and certain medications. Should someone in your party become ill, alert the resort front desk for immediate medical attention or call the emergency number provided by the resort. Also advise your Resort Representative as soon as possible, who may be able to provide assistance. If you have medical issues or concerns about medical services, we urge you to contact your resort with specific questions. Please be aware that medical standards and training of emergency responders and resort medical facilities vary greatly, and health care abroad may not be the same as you might expect at home. It may be standard policy for hospitals and medical providers abroad to require cash payment upfront for services. Check with your insurance provider regarding claims for reimbursement. 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. By offering for sale travel to particular destinations, GetAway Travel Group does not represent or warrant that travel to such destination is without risk and is not liable for any damages or losses that may result from travel.

Hazardous Materials Restrictions and Insecticide Notice
Federal law forbids the carriage of hazardous materials aboard aircraft in your luggage or on your person. A violation can result in five years’ imprisonment and penalties of $250,000 or more (49 U.S.C. 5124). Hazardous materials include explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives and radioactive materials. Examples: Paints, lighter fluid, fireworks, tear gases, oxygen bottles, and radio-pharmaceuticals. There are special exceptions for small quantities (up to 70 ounces total) of medicinal and toilet articles carried in your luggage and certain smoking materials carried on your person. Special restrictions and limitations for transporting Hazardous Materials and specifically Lithium Ion batteries, refer to www.faa.gov/go/packsafe for more information. In the event a carry-on bag cannot be accommodated in the passenger cabin and has to be placed below in a cargo bin for any reason, any electronic device or spare Lithium-ion or any other type of battery permitted in carry-on baggage MUST be removed from the carry-on bag and remain in the possession of the passenger in the passenger cabin. For further information, contact your airline representative. Some countries may require aircraft cabin insecticide treatment for in-bound foreign flights. A list of such countries is available at https://www.transportation.gov/airconsumer/spray.
We have made arrangements for air transportation to your vacation destination via regularly scheduled certificated air carriers or other air carriers who have duly filed with and are authorized to operate air transportation and public charter transportation by the U.S. Department of Transportation. We reserve the right to substitute alternate air carriers if necessary. All air travel is subject to the terms and conditions of the operating air carrier. When you fly to and from your destination the Conditions of Carriage apply, some of which limit or exclude liability. The Conditions of Carriage are available by requesting them in writing from the carrier or by request at the airport.
Flights & Airport Check-in
Your flight information will appear on the booking confirmation issued when you make your deposit, and on your electronic travel documents issued upon full payment. All flight times are subject to change without notice. We strongly suggest that you reconfirm exact flight times with the carrier 24 hours prior to departure and again before departing for the airport. For international flights, we recommend arriving at the airport at least three hours prior to your scheduled departure time to allow time to check in and get through Security. For domestic flights, we recommend that you arrive two hours prior to travel but absolutely no later than one hour prior to travel. If you do not have pre-assigned seats and have seat preferences, we recommend that you arrive early as seats will be assigned upon check in based on availability. Pre-assigned seat selection is at the discretion of the air carrier and may require payment of an additional fee.
If you do not check in at the airport or gate at the required time, or do not possess proper documentation, you will be denied boarding and will not be eligible for a refund. Additionally, if you fail to check in for your flight without prior cancellation, you are considered a no-show and will not be eligible for a refund. Travel Insurance does not cover the instances noted above. GetAway Travel Group assumes no responsibility for any passengers making independent connections to flights booked through GetAway Travel Group. Some airlines do not charge for infants under two years of age, but the infant must sit on an adult’s lap. Other airlines do charge for infants or infant air-related taxes. Please check with your air carrier. If an infant reaches the age of two at any time during the vacation, federal law requires the purchase of a separate seat for any remaining portions of the flight. Some countries charge infant departure taxes.
Denial of Entry
Certain countries may deny entry to travelers with even a minor criminal record, and if not a U.S. citizen, entry back into the U.S. Check with the U.S. Embassy and the embassy or consulate of the country being visited to ensure you can travel as planned. GetAway Travel Group does not accept responsibility if you are denied entry and cancellation penalties apply.
We cannot accept unaccompanied minors under 18 for any travel. For certain countries, a notarized consent from both parents or legal guardian(s) is required for children younger than 18 years old traveling with one parent, or in someone else’s custody; or a notarized birth certificate showing only one parent, a parent’s death certificate, or a court order of child custody MAY also be permissible. Be sure to inquire with your destination‘s consulate, or visit websites such as travel.state.gov, dhs.gov or iatatravelcentre.com. Mexican-born minors under 18 years of age traveling alone or with someone other than a parent or legal guardian, require special documentation to depart Mexico, even if the Minor is a Dual Mexican Citizen. For details, contact the Mexican embassy or click here. Some airlines may require documentation for children traveling without their legal guardian beyond what is mandated by the destination country- contact your airline directly for details.
Required Entry/ Re-entry Documentation
Proper documentation is YOUR responsibility. The following information is based on current requirements for U.S. citizens at time of publication. This information may change- see your travel agent or contact your destination consulate for the most current requirements on your travel date. Passengers returning to the U.S. by air from any international destination must have a valid passport, and may be denied boarding by the airline if the passport is damaged, mutilated, or has excessive wear. A “Passport Card” is not acceptable. If your name on your passport (or for non-U.S. citizens, “valid travel documents”) does not match your name on your travel documentation, you will not be allowed to travel. A passport valid for up to 6 months past the date of completed travel is required when traveling internationally. Married or divorced women traveling under names other than what is printed on their travel documents must supply a marriage license and/or divorce decree. For details on how to obtain a passport, contact your local courthouse or post office. If you are not a U.S. citizen, contact your destination’s consulate or embassy to determine required entry documents.
Passports are NOT required for travel within the continental U.S., Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. However, travel to these U.S. destinations/ U.S. territories requires a valid state/government-issued picture I.D. or valid state-issued driver’s license that is compliant with the Real ID ACT. Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act established minimum ID security standards and prohibits federal agencies, like TSA, from accepting licenses and identification cards for official purposes from states that do not meet these standards. Passengers traveling domestically with a driver’s license issued by a state that is not compliant with the REAL ID ACT (and has not been granted an extension) will need to show an alternative form of acceptable identification for domestic air travel to board their flight. To check whether your state is compliant or has an extension, visit dhs.gov/real-id. If your state-issued ID or driver’s license is not compliant, visit tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification for alternate forms of acceptable ID. Due to COVID-19, the deadline for domestic airline passengers to secure a Real ID driver’s license for use as identification at the airport has been moved back one year. Enforcement is now due to begin on October 1, 2021. Any passenger who is denied boarding due to lack of proper documentation will have their vacation cancelled. Failure to comply with the above requirements will result in you not being allowed to travel and no refund will be given.
Your travel documents will be emailed to you once full payment is received. Please check them carefully to ensure that all the information is correct and passenger names exactly match your Proof of Citizenship. If you discover an error, please contact your travel agent immediately.
