SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL

THE TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION

THE STORYBOOT PROJECT

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.

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.

TreadRight’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. By providing grants to organizations 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.

COACH TRAVEL

Coach travel has been proven to have substantial environmental benefits, including reducing congestion and causing less pollution per passenger mile 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.*

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.

Board your rail car and start

your journey aboard the Train in the Sky, “El Chepe,” traveling from sea level to 7,500 feet (2,285 meters) in less than 150 miles (240 kilometers), passing through tunnels and over soaring bridges. Engineers and laborers spent nearly 100 years laying tracks into this rugged terrain, and now the spectacular views make it one of the world’s most exciting train journeys. Pass alongside the jagged Barranca Septentrion and Urique Canyon as you travel into the heart of Copper Canyon. Disembark at your hotel, situated right on the rim of the canyon. (CB) Hotel: Divisadero Barrancas Day 6 | Copper Canyon Sightseeing Spend the entire day exploring this dramatic area, one of the greatest natural treasures of North America. Learn about the geological forces that created the seven individual canyons, collectively known as the Copper Canyon or Barrancas del Cobre.

An optional gondola ride down the canyon is available this afternoon. (CB) Day 7 | Copper Canyon – Guerrero – Casas Grandes Travel to the logging village of Creel via Oteros Canyon to the village of Guerrero, where a stop is made for lunch. The area is rich in culinary resources and apple orchards. Then, travel on to the bustling city of Nuevo Casas Grandes.

Watch master craftsmen design fire pots and the techniques learned over several generations.

Continue across the Chihuahua Desert into the U.S. arriving back in Phoenix at approximately 6:30 p.m. depending on border crossing and traffic conditions. Due to your late arrival, overnights are available at the Hilton Garden Inn, Phoenix Airport North. (CB, L)

The dramatic Sawyer Glaciers at the end of Tracy Arm are framed by mountains on either side, and are often bathed in a light mist that amplifies the blue hue of the ice. No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. Here, you can shop downtown or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee or fish. The adventures are as bountiful as the daylight. (FB, L, D) Day 22 | Skagway Aspiring Klondike gold rushers who made it to Skagway took a look at the long journey that lay ahead of them and

When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea, the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. In fact, Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than any place else in the world. (FB, L, D)

Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for their welfare and supervision. Alcoholic beverages will not be served to guests under the legal age for alcohol consumption in the country being visited. Minors under age 18 traveling to certain foreign countries must be accompanied by both parents or have a notarized letter of consent signed by the parent(s) not traveling. Trafalgar is not responsible for any losses if you fail to have appropriate documentation. If the other parent is deceased or the child has only one legal parent, a notarized statement must be obtained as proof. Trafalgar seeks to provide a safe, enjoyable and memorable travel experience for all guests. Trafalgar welcomes guests with special needs or disabilities. Please note the following: - Guests must advise Trafalgar, at time of booking, of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodating. Trafalgar will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices and procedures when necessary, unless doing so will fundamentally alter the nature of the services provided. - Guests must ensure they are medically and physically able to travel. - Trafalgar may impose safety requirements. Trafalgar may exclude an individual from participating in a guided vacation or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a threat to the health or safety of others. This decision, made solely by Trafalgar, 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. - Trafalgar 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 traveler 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 travelers, Travel Directors and Trafalgar Staff will not be available for such purpose. - Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on guided vacations. - Trafalgar does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. Trafalgar is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained while on vacation, 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 vacation. Your regular health insurance benefits may not apply abroad. - In purchasing your vacation, 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 Trafalgar. - Some guided vacations 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 vacation, Trafalgar may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which Trafalgar does not control. Accommodations on international guided vacations may differ from those in the United States. Trafalgar cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests traveling on international guided vacations. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not Trafalgar. These are not part of the vacation 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. Trafalgar may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with Trafalgar’s terms and conditions. If this occurs, you are responsible for the cost of travel back to your hometown and Trafalgar shall not be liable for your losses and no refund shall be provided.

Behavior We are here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behavior from our Guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the vacation 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 behavior, 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 accommodations and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated. If you damage the accommodations in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodations 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. Trafalgar is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a guided vacation or aircraft, ship or train. Guests agree not to hold Trafalgar or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions. Young Traveler Discount The Young Traveler must be under age 18 on the departure date to be eligible for the discount, and must be accompanied by an adult, sharing a ”double” or “triple” room. Only two Young Traveler discounts per room are permitted. Please see ‘Your Savings’ for details. Accommodations are typically based on two-bedded rooms with a private bath, rollaway beds are not included in the triple prices. Itinerary Variations Trafalgar strives to improve guided vacation itineraries, services and features.
