SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL THE TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION

COACH TRAVEL

Established and funded as a joint initiative among The Travel Corporation’s family of brands, the TreadRight Foundation is a not-for-profit that works to ensure the environment and communities we visit remain vibrant for generations to come. To date, TreadRight has supported more than 35 sustainable tourism projects worldwide.

Coach travel has been proven to have substantial environmental benefits, including reducing congestion and causing less pollution per passenger kilometre than any other transportation option. Coaches have been proven to emit fewer greenhouse gases on a per passenger basis than either train or car travel.*

TreadRight’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions across the world that define each unique region. Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ.

THE STORYBOOT PROJECT As part of our continued support of the TreadRight Heritage Initiative, CostSaver is helping to fund The Storyboot School, an initiative delivered in partnership with Manitobah Mukluks Storyboot Project in Toronto, Canada. The partnership sees the creation of Storyboot School sessions that teach the heritage art of mukluk-making to local indigenous students, while also introducing the art and culture to guests on select CostSaver tours. The project looks to revive the traditional arts by creating partnerships with elders and artisans who fashion mukluks and moccasins in the traditional way. It also allows Storyboot artisans from across Canada to display and sell their mukluks at the Bata Shoe Museum, the site of the Storyboot School.

TRAVEL TODAY, SUSTAIN TOMORROW We are operated by Trafalgar and committed to leading the way in sustainable tourism. That’s why on each trip, we’re working to ensure that every place you visit – its people, natural beauty, cultures and traditions – is preserved for future generations to enjoy.

YOUR GUIDED HOLIDAY BOOKING Trafalgar Tours (Aust) Pty Ltd is the ‘Sales Company’; Destination America Inc is the ‘Operator’; collectively these companies are referred to as ‘CostSaver’. Your agreement is with CostSaver and a contract is formed when you make a reservation with us that we accept. Enrolment in and payment for a guided holiday shall constitute acceptance by the guest of the terms and conditions in this brochure. These cannot be varied except in writing by an officer of the Company. The invalidity of any provisions herein shall not affect the validity of any other provisions. The agreement shall be construed as though the invalid provision was not contained herein and was replaced with an enforceable provision as similar as possible to the original provision. Disclaimer Travel is personal and each individual’s goals and experiences may differ. CostSaver will not be bound by, or liable for, any description, photograph, representation or warranty made by or provided by any independent third party sales representative, Travel Agent, or other person or entity relating to any holiday offered by CostSaver. Departure Date The departure date is the date indicated on the CostSaver confirmation. Security Security is a major concern to all of us and the situation globally is constantly changing. Events around the world, coupled with the “Travel Advisories” put out by various governments, may at times necessitate changes to the accommodations and itinerary or even trip cancellation. You must accept these risks involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties and accept responsibility for your own travel decisions. WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE GUIDED HOLIDAY PRICE Inter-city Travel By private motorcoach, trains, cruises and ferries (see itineraries). Air Transportation Not included unless otherwise outlined in each itinerary page price panel. Guided Holiday By air-conditioned luxury motorcoaches. Please note on some regional holidays smaller motorcoaches without toilet facilities are used. If due to circumstances beyond our control motorcoaches are used otherwise than as advertised, a refund of $10 per person will be made. Toilets may be affected by higher altitude or extreme weather conditions such as freezing temperatures and for the comfort of those on board the motorcoach the toilets may have to be closed. In these circumstances, additional rest breaks will be incorporated into the itinerary. Hotel Accommodation Prices are per person, based on two persons sharing with private bath or shower. Triple rooms may be available on selected holidays in limited numbers. Triple rooms will often feature one foldaway bed plus one double bed. Three adults may find these rooms small and suitcase space slightly restricted. They are generally more suitable for two adults and one child. Rollaway beds are not included in triple prices. Every effort has been made to reserve two-bed rooms; however, on some occasions, rooms with one double bed may be the only choice available. These rooms will be allocated to single travellers and couples first; other rooms may feature a single bed and rollaway bed, murphy bed or sleeper sofa. A limited number of twin rooms are available with our Shared Rooming service. CostSaver shall not be responsible or liable for any claims or issues arising out of the roommate pairing. Special room requests (adjacent, connecting or lower-floor rooms, as examples) must be made at time of booking. Special room requests are not guaranteed and are based on availability at time of check-in. Many hotels are 100% smoke-free, including all guest rooms, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms and public spaces. Smoking in a non-smoking room may result in a fine. Substitute hotels may be used sometimes. We try to use hotels of similar standard. Hotel Frequent Traveller program points are not earned with hotels on CostSaver holidays. Note hotel room sizes, standards, facilities and services provided may vary from country to country and region to region and are often local in style. Cruises Per person prices are based on two persons sharing a cabin with two berths, private shower and toilet. A limited number of single and triple cabins are available.

motorcoaches except in remote locations. The WiFi on the motorcoaches uses the mobile phone network and as a result the connection will be slower than standard broadband and at times may not be available. Audio and Video streaming is not available using motorcoach WiFi. Please note that it is not available on train trips, or when the main CostSaver motorcoach is not being used, such as on transfer motorcoaches and other local services. For further information on which countries WiFi is offered in as well as daily data allowances please refer to the CostSaver website www.trafalgar.com/wifi. Travel Director Guided holidays are conducted in English by a professional Travel Director. In the unlikely event that there are fifteen guests or less travelling on a departure, CostSaver reserves the right to operate this departure on an individual basis with private transfers and individual arrangements. Please refer to the individual guided holiday. Itinerary extensions are operated on a locally hosted basis using regular Englishspeaking Local Host services. Meals Meals are included as detailed on itineraries. Sightseeing Experiences, entrance fees and an Englishspeaking Local Specialist (when required) are included as detailed in the itinerary pages. Transfers Arrival and departure airport transfers are not included unless otherwise mentioned, see the Airport transfer page for details. Where available, arrival and/ or departure airport transfers are available for purchase. Transfers between hotels, railway stations and piers are included as indicated on each guided holiday itinerary. If you did not purchase your flights from CostSaver, but purchased your transfers from CostSaver, you will need to provide your arrival and departure flight information to CostSaver at the time of booking. It is your responsibility to update CostSaver with any changes to your flight schedule to ensure that you receive your purchased transfers. Failure to do so may result in missing these services and no refund shall be due for missed arrival transfers resulting from missing or outdated flight information. There will be no refund for missed or unused transfers. Porterage Luggage handling of one suitcase per person, at each guided holiday hotel and porter service at airports for intra-air inclusive guided holidays, is included in the guided holiday price. Due to limited motorcoach capacity, a single bag is allowed with dimensions not exceeding 30”x18”x10” (76x46x25cm) and weight not exceeding 50 lbs. (23kg). Airlines may impose stricter weight and size limits for luggage and may also charge fees for checked luggage, including the first checked bag. Please check with your airline(s) directly for their most current luggage regulations and related fees. CostSaver is not responsible for additional fees imposed by air carriers regarding luggage. A charge of US$6/CA$6 or local currency equivalent per travelling day will be collected by the Travel Director if a second piece of luggage is permitted to be carried, or if suitcase exceeds weight or size limits. This is not assurance that luggage in excess of limits on size, weight and number of pieces will be permitted on the motorcoach. Carry-on/hand luggage is restricted to one piece per person, not exceeding 12”x11”x6” (30x28x14 cm) to fit under your motorcoach seat or in the small overhead compartment. Carry-on/hand luggage handling is the responsibility of each guest and must be taken on and off the motorcoach by you each day of the guided holiday. Carry-ons with telescopic handles and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartments or under seats and, therefore, cannot be accepted as carry-on luggage. CostSaver and CostSaver’s affiliated entities shall not be liable for loss or damage to luggage or any guest’s belongings. Guests should immediately report lost items to the Travel Director who will assist in completing a lost property form that can be used for an insurance claim. CostSaver cannot assist in locating lost items after the guest disembarks or completes the CostSaver holiday.

CostSaver may exclude an individual from participating in a guided holiday or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a threat to the health or safety of others. This decision, made solely by CostSaver, to exclude an individual will be based on an individualized assessment based on reasonable judgment that relies on current medical evidence or on the best available objective evidence to determine the nature, duration and severity of the risk, the probability that potential injury will occur and whether reasonable modifications of policies, practices or procedures will mitigate the risk. No refunds will be given if the decision is made to exclude a guest. - CostSaver does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as eating, toileting or dressing). A Traveller who requires services of a personal nature (eating, toileting or dressing, as examples) should strongly consider bringing a companion to provide such assistance and must understand that other Travellers, Travel Directors and CostSaver Staff will not be available for such purposes. - Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on guided holidays.

- CostSaver does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. CostSaver is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained while on holiday, or for the quality of the care or services received. Medical care in other countries is not always comparable to care that you may receive in your local area. You are encouraged to purchase medical insurance that will cover you while on holiday. Your regular health insurance benefits may not apply abroad. - In purchasing your holiday, you attest that you are physically fit for it. If you have concerns please request additional details about your journey from your Travel Agent or CostSaver. - Some guided holidays include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and/or locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the guided holiday, CostSaver may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which CostSaver does not control. CostSaver cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests travelling on international guided holidays. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not CostSaver. These are not part of the holiday package provided by us. Your contract will be with the operator of the experience. We are not responsible for providing of the experience, or anything that happens during the experience. Some experiences involve outdoor activities and/or can be physically demanding. You must make your own decisions about experiences and participate only in activities that suit your physical ability: we suggest that you speak with your medical provider if you have questions about your abilities. We recommend you check whether any insurance you have also includes your participation in adventure activities you may undertake. CostSaver may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with CostSaver’s terms and conditions. If this occurs, you are responsible for the cost of travel back to your hometown and CostSaver shall not be liable for your losses and no refund shall be provided. Behaviour We are here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour from our guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the holiday of guests who assault our Company Representatives or who are abusive or aggressive. When you make a booking, you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your stay. We reserve the right at any time to terminate the travel arrangements and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behaviour, in the reasonable opinion of us or our suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property. Full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be made. We shall have no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodation and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated. If you damage the accommodation in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodation provider or property owner concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (also including legal costs) made against us. Criminal proceedings may be instigated. CostSaver is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a guided holiday or aircraft, ship or train. Guests agree not to hold CostSaver or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions. Young Traveller Discount The Young Traveller must be under age 18 on the departure date to be eligible for the discount, and must be accompanied by an adult, sharing a “twin” (triple) room. Only two Young Traveller discounts per room are permitted. Please see ‘Your Savings’ for details. Itinerary Variations CostSaver strives to improve guided holiday itineraries, services and features. If improvements can be made, or if circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods multiple departures may operate, sometimes in reverse order; hotels may vary from those stated on the itinerary pages. On guided holidays which include cruises, the ship may be changed for operational reasons. Departures in early and late season are potentially operated in cool weather conditions. As a result, itinerary variations may occur. Certain activities may not be precisely as described or may not be available due to seasonality or weather conditions. We will try to notify you or your Travel Agent of changes. If your enjoyment may be diminished by such limitations, please check with us or your Travel Agent before making a reservation. Holidays & Changes During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing trips and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances, itinerary changes are made by CostSaver seeking to reduce inconvenience to guests. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change to the itinerary, and no compensation will be payable to guests. Holidays, closing days and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled regional meals, sightseeing or other activities. If, you feel your

enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date. Extended stays If you arranged with us to remain at a destination before or after your guided holiday, your stay will be at your sole expense as is the transfer to either the hotel or airport. Please see the ‘Extra Nights Accommodation’ section for a list of pre- and postguided holiday accommodation. Space is limited and if available is for up to three nights before and/or after each guided holiday. Breakfast and luggage handling is not included unless otherwise noted. CostSaver does not provide complimentary transfers for guests booking preand post-night accommodations. However, inexpensive airport transfers can be purchased from CostSaver. If your extra night accommodation is not the hotel where your guided holiday begins or ends, you will be responsible for your transfer arrangements at your own expense. For your comfort CostSaver operates a daily seat rotation system and enforces a strict no smoking (including e-cigarettes) and no alcohol policy on board motorcoaches. Regular comfort stops are made on travelling days. Many hotels, restaurants, trains, cruises and other venues are 100% smoke free. Guided Holiday Cancellation CostSaver reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any guided holiday departure in any circumstances, including in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. If cancellation is made by CostSaver any time prior to departure date of the guided holiday except when you failed to pay the final balance on time, CostSaver will either refund the amount received for the guided holiday booking, or offer a comparable holiday if available. CostSaver will refund any difference in price if the alternative is of a lower price however, the Guest will be responsible for additional costs if the alternative is priced higher. CostSaver is not responsible for other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations and is not liable for any cancellation penalties incurred on other travel arrangements including air tickets. Travel Insurance CostSaver recommends that all guests purchase comprehensive Travel Insurance. Certain countries have a requirement for foreign visitors to have valid medical insurance on entry. CostSaver cannot be held responsible for denied entry if a guest is unable to provide details to authorities of insurance or denial of entry for any reason.
