It’s hearing the original tunes of Johnny Cash, performed by his own family in Nashville. It’s the heart-warming Southern hospitality of Esther Carpenter, as she welcomes you for dinner at her 215-year old family home in Natchez. It’s buying your Po’Boys with the locals in New Orleans, shopping for cowboy boots with cowboys in Tennessee, and sharing crystal-clear waters with the sea turtles in Hawaii. It’s moving your soul as you stare out at the Canadian Rockies, discovering the vastness of the mighty Grand Canyon, or standing in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. From the iconic to the unexpected, we’ll connect you to the very essence of the Americas like no other. You’ll become a local yourself; a part of the story. It might be just a minute, an hour, a day; we bring you those ‘pinch-me’ moments that will change the way you see the world forever. Join us, discover the real thing, and live The Good Life.

The secrets you’ll hear

LEARN THE SECRETS THAT ONLY LOCALS KNOW. YOUR TRAVEL DIRECTOR WILL REVEAL THEIR FAVOURITE PLACES AND SPECIAL GEMS THAT YOU MAY NEVER HAVE THE CHANCE TO DISCOVER ALONE. DREW WALKER, OUR SOUTHERN USA TRAVEL DIRECTOR, SHARES A FEW OF HIS FAVOURITES:

1 “Looking for the best place to buy cowboy boots in Tennessee? You can’t go past Boot Country. Just keep an eye out for the big red boot outside.”

2 “When you think of Tennessee, you usually think ‘whisky’, but Nashville is fast becoming one of the brewing capitals of America. For a great brew, you can’t walk past the Filling Station.”

3 “For local's favourite beignets, try Morning Call Café in City Park, New Orleans. They’ve been serving up beignets fresh made to order since 1870.” Discover more on Drew’s USA trips: Tastes and Sounds of the South (p. 70-71), Spirit of the South (p. 72-73)

# - Rocky Mountaineer and VIA Rail  * - Holland America YOUR GUIDED HOLIDAY BOOKING Travel Corporation NZ Limited is the ‘Sales Company’; Destination America Inc is the ‘Operator’; collectively these companies are referred to as ‘Trafalgar’. Your agreement is with Trafalgar 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. Trafalgar 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 Trafalgar. Departure Date The departure date is the date indicated on the booking 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 Intra-trip Travel By private motorcoach, trains, cruises, ferries and intra-trip flights (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. Quad occupancy is based on four people sharing one room with two beds and may be used only for two adults and two children aged 17 or younger. Quad rooms are only available on Family Experiences with a limit of two adults in that room. Accommodation is typically based on two-bedded rooms with a private bath. Rollaway beds are not included in either the triple or quad 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. Trafalgar shall not be responsible or liable for any claims or issues arising out of the shared rooming. 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 Trafalgar 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 at an extra cost. Free WiFi Internet Service Complimentary WiFi service is available in many Trafalgar hotel guestrooms and/or the public areas of most hotels. In most countries complimentary WiFi is also provided on-board the 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 Trafalgar 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 Trafalgar 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, Trafalgar 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 English-speaking 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 Between airports, hotels, railway stations and piers are included as indicated on each guided holiday itinerary. There will be no refund for missed or unused transfers. If you did not purchase your flights from Trafalgar, you will need to provide your arrival and departure flight information to Trafalgar at the time of booking. It is your responsibility to update Trafalgar with any changes to your flight schedule to ensure that you receive your 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. 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 price. Motor coach Luggage Allowances: Due to limited coach capacity, a single bag is allowed with dimensions not exceeding 30”x18”x10” (76x46x25cm) and weight not exceeding 50 lbs./23kg. Carry-on/hand luggage is restricted to one piece per person, not exceeding 12”x11”x6” (30x28x14 cm) to fit under your coach seat or in the small overhead compartment. 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. Carry-on/hand luggage handling is the responsibility of each guest and must be taken on and off the coach by you each day of the guided holiday. 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 coach. Trafalgar and Trafalgar’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. Trafalgar cannot assist in locating lost items after the guest disembarks or completes the Trafalgar holiday. Airline Luggage Allowances: 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 or iflybags.com for their most current luggage regulations and related fees. Trafalgar is not responsible for additional fees imposed by air carriers regarding luggage. Tips/Gratuities Tips/gratuities are included for services on guided holiday, except to your Motorcoach Driver, Local Host, Local Specialists and Travel Director whose tips/ gratuities should be extended on a voluntary, individual basis at the end of your holiday.

Cruise Line tips/gratuities (aka Hotels Service Charges) to shipboard personnel are included under your total ‘Twin Share’ price. Optional Prepaid Gratuities If you have prepaid your gratuities to your Travel Director and Driver, this will be detailed within your holiday documentation. Please note that prepaid gratuities cover only the land portion of your holiday itinerary. We offer this option on the majority of our holiday itineraries. Please check the holiday price panels for the applicable holidays where this option is available. Inter-Island Flights on Hawaii guided holidays Hawaii guided holidays include all inter-island airfares, airrelated charges and taxes as per the date on the back cover and are subject to change without notice. Included flights are outlined in each Hawaii guided holiday price panel. Due to the nature of the inter-island airfares, taxes and fuel surcharges cannot be confirmed until payment has been received and inter-island air tickets issued. Guests should therefore be aware that additional payments may be due resulting from increases in taxes and fuel surcharges on interisland flights (and remain liable even if not acknowledged). Once payment has been received and inter-island air tickets issued, the airfares, the taxes and fuel surcharges are final, regardless of any future price fluctuations up or down. Due to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Secure Flight rules, airlines in Hawaii must collect required information from guests. Guests travelling on inter-island flights must provide full name (as appears on a governmentissued ID - i.e. passport, or Driver’s License for US citizens and residents), date of birth and gender. For more information regarding TSA Secure Flight rules, please visit www.tsa.gov. Incomplete or inaccurate information may result in additional charges payable to the airline or delay or denial of boarding. Hawaiian Airlines Checked Luggage Fee Please note that Hawaiian Airlines charge a checked bag fee on each interisland flight as outlined in your guided holiday itinerary. This additional cost is not covered in your guided holiday price and is the responsibility of each guest. The current cost per flight is US$25 per first suitcase, US$30 for an additional suitcase (subject to change without notice). These fees are subject to change per airline luggage policy. Once you join the guided holiday, the Travel Director will collect these fees and can assist you with your questions. We also provide the option to prepay the luggage fees with your main trip arrangements. NOT INCLUDED IN GUIDED HOLIDAY PRICE Any items and matters not referred to above, including, airfares to and from your destination, air-related taxes and fees (except where specified); additional fees charged by airlines such as checked and/or excess luggage, seat selections and any other services; passport and visa fees; insurances of all kinds; tips/gratuities to Travel Directors, Local Host, Local Specialists and Motorcoach Drivers; laundry; phone calls; minibar; beverages and meals not detailed in the itinerary; Optional Experiences; and all items of a personal nature. Additional taxes and surcharges may be collected by foreign governmental and non-governmental entities. The price does not cover costs and expenses, including your return home, if you leave the guided holiday whether of your own volition, our decision based on behaviour that disrupts the trip, due to illness, action by any government or other reason. This list is illustrative and not a complete list of every item not included. RESERVATIONS & PAYMENTS 1.

Passports, Visas and other Entry/Exit Requirements All guests including children must be in possession of a machine-readable passport valid for 6 months after their trip return date along with applicable visas. Please refer to “Passport and Visas” section. Due to government imposed security/ immigration measures, passport and emergency contact information is required for all guests prior to the release of travel documents. It is the guest’s sole responsibility to secure and/or pay for any and all visas, affidavits, immunisations, etc. that are required to be permitted entry into each destination. Please note that entry to any country may be refused even if the required information and travel documents are complete. For up-to-date detailed information on travel documents and visas, entry/exit taxes and further information on entry and exit requirements please check with your Travel Agent or local consular services.

Trafalgar bears no responsibility for such information and will not be responsible for advising and/or obtaining required travel documentation for any guest, or for any delays, damages, and/or losses including missed portions of your holiday related to improper documentation or government decisions about entry. BOOKING CHANGES, CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS Booking Changes A fee of $35 or more per person, per change plus any further cost we incur, will be charged for any revision or alteration made to a reservation including name

changes, after the booking is confirmed. Costs and charges may increase closer to the departure date that changes are made. We will try to make your requested change but it may not be possible. A change of guided holiday date or itinerary within 45/90 days of departure date will be treated as a cancellation. Cancellation fees will apply except when the change is to an earlier departure date and the guided holiday price is equivalent or greater, in which case a $35 (or more) per person amendment fee will be charged. You must also pay any charges imposed by airlines for any changes, including name and date changes. This can be up to 100% of the value of the ticket. CANCELLATIONS AND CANCELLATION FEES Travel arrangements for any member of the party may be cancelled at any time by written notice by the person who made the booking.

The charges detailed in the Summary Booking and Cancellation Terms table will apply when notice of cancellation is given after the booking is confirmed. • If a guest fails to join the guided holiday on the day of departure, cancellation fees will be 100% (unless the guest notifies us of the delay and joins the guided holiday later at their own expense). • Cancellation fees as per the Summary Booking and Cancellation Terms table apply to additional accommodation and/or chargeable transfers prior to and after the guided holiday or cruise reserved through Trafalgar and are additional to any cancellation fees or other charges that may be levied by your Travel Agent. • Airline Flights/Tickets: After deposit has been received, any change incurs a $35 service fee per person PLUS any additional change/cancellation fee imposed by the Airline. Some airfares including published fares booked by Trafalgar are non-changeable and non-refundable. See ‘Air Cancellation’ Section below. • Trafalgar is not responsible for other travel arrangements that you or your party has made outside Trafalgar and which are affected by our cancellations. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under your insurance, you may be able to reclaim these charges from your insurer. You or your Travel Agent are responsible to make the claim to your insurer. Illness or Absence Early return expenses are the guest’s responsibility. There is no refund for absence or early departure from a guided holiday, including but not limited to missed hotels, transfers, meals or sightseeing.

Trafalgar makes no representation or guarantees concerning reimbursement, scope of coverage, or other aspects of any travel insurance policy or claim. AIR ARRANGEMENTS Reservations/Ticketing If an air reservation is made by Trafalgar payment in full may be required for your airfare at the time of booking your flights in relation to your Trafalgar holiday to get you to/from your holiday destination.

That portion of the price is not subject to reduction in a discount promotion, nor commissionable to Travel Agents.

Government fees and taxes are subject to change without notice and will apply regardless of your booking’s payment status. The cruise line reserves the right to impose or pass through fuel surcharges, security surcharges or other incidental surcharges. No right of cancellation exists in these circumstances. These additional Cruise Fees & Taxes are listed in the date and price panel of each Guided Holiday & Cruise program.

GENERAL INFORMATION & CONDITIONS Guided Holiday Prices Are based on costs, charges, tariffs, rates, prices, taxes, levies, exchange rates and other considerations as of the production date of this brochure (see back cover). All are subject to change. For up-to-date pricing contact your Travel Agent or visit www.trafalgar.com. No surcharges regarding cost or currency fluctuations will be made to the LAND only price once the deposit is received. No refund will be made on account of reduction of any of the above. If the total guided holiday price increases by more than 10%, guests will have the option to cancel the guided holiday within 7 days of notification of the surcharge without penalty. All prices are in New Zealand Dollars unless specified. Other Fees and Taxes Taxes and fees are subject to change without notice and will be confirmed at time of booking. Any additional fees charged by the airlines such as luggage handling, seat selections, and/or any other services are the sole responsibility of the guest(s). Additional airrelated restrictions apply. Guided Holiday Participation On all guided holidays children under 5 years of age are not eligible to travel. 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 travelling to certain foreign countries must be accompanied by both parents or have a notarised letter of consent signed by the parent(s) not travelling. 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 notarised 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 holiday 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 individualised 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 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 Trafalgar Staff will not be available for such purposes. - Regrettably, motorised scooters are not allowed on guided holidays. - 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 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 Trafalgar. - 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, 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. Trafalgar cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests travelling on international guided holidays. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not Trafalgar. 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. 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. 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. Trafalgar 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 Trafalgar 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 or triple room. Only two Young Traveller discounts per room are permitted, except on Family Experiences, where the limit is three. This discount can be combined with our ‘Book Together’ discount. The Young Traveller discount may not be applicable on certain itineraries or regions and applies to the land only portion of a trip. Please see ‘Ways to Save’ for details. Itinerary Variations Trafalgar 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. Trafalgar’s ‘Be My Guest’ experiences are unique and take place in singular locations. In the unlikely event that our local hosts are unable to welcome Trafalgar guests, Trafalgar will attempt to find an alternate experience or a highlight meal will be provided in place of the ‘Be My Guest’ experience. 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 Trafalgar 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 ‘Extend your Holiday’ section for a list of pre- and post-guided 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. Trafalgar does not provide complimentary transfers for guests booking pre-and post-night accommodations. However, inexpensive airport transfers can be purchased from Trafalgar. 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.
