Neither WVZM nor any of its associates, agents, officers, employees or consultants shall be financially responsible for refunds in the event of cancellation of all or part of any tour due to acts of nature, governmental actions, travel advisories or warnings, civil unrest or hostilities, or acts of terrorism, or for the default of any Tour Operator or Travel Supplier, or for any reason beyond the control of WVZM. WVZM is not responsible for any refunds should a presenter/speaker advertised as attending/speaking or leading a tour or conference cancel for any reason whatsoever.

Because there are no exceptions to the above cancellation terms, we strongly recommend travel insurance protection.
Due to the many unforeseen variables associated with travel, including health, family emergencies, inclement weather, political unrest, airline cancellations, etc., we urge all travelers to purchase travel insurance. Please check the WVZM website for links to travel insurance providers.
Tour prices are calculated according to current transportation, taxes and fees, currency values, and a minimum number of travelers. Although WVZM will try to ensure that these prices remain as advertised, they are subject to change. The right is reserved to substitute hotels or alter itineraries, and either the Journey Coordinator WVZM shall have the right to cancel any travel program prior to departure or to increase prices where the costs shall rise.
Please note: Because WVZM partially bases prices on a minimum number of guests, a surcharge not to exceed $250USD, (which will vary according to the total number of registered guests), may be added if that minimum isn’t reached. WVZM will notify all registered travelers of any surcharge at least 30 days prior to the departure date, and cancellation fees are still applicable.

WVZM accepts no liability and will give no refunds for any passenger denied admission onto any form of transportation or into any country as a result of the passenger not having proper documentation. Visa requirements are trip-specific; it is each traveler’s duty to be aware of and comply with these varying requirements. All international tours will require a passport. The timeline for securing visas and passports varies and can exceed 3 months, so please be prepared well in advance of your intended departure date.

We will be happy to try to find a suitable roommate for those who are traveling alone and would like to share a room. Registration for the tour will be held open until 30 days before the departure date in order to try to match everyone with a roommate.
