TERMS, CONDITIONS AND WARRANTIES

Tax Recovery Charge.
The tax charge on Special Rate transactions is a recovery of all applicable transaction taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc.) that is paid to the suppliers (e.g. cruise, tour, hotel, and car suppliers, etc.) in connection with your travel arrangements

Premier River Cruises is not the supplier collecting and remitting said tax to the applicable tax authorities. Premier River Cruises is not a co-supplier associated with the supplier with whom we book or reserve our customer's travel arrangements.

Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. Premier River Cruises actual tax cost paid to the supplier may vary from the tax recovery charge, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the cruise, escorted tour, vacation package, hotel, car, etc. by our customer. Certain jurisdictions impose a hotel occupancy tax or other type of transaction tax upon the booking of a cruise, an escorted tour, a vacation package, a hotel room, an automobile, etc. The type of tax charged by the supplier will vary by service and location.

Service Fee. Premier River Cruises currently does not have any Service Fees. We reserve the right to impose them without notice at a future date. These fees cover the costs incurred by Premier River Cruises in servicing your travel reservation.

Travel Destinations. Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Premier River Cruises urges passengers to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at www.state.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov, www.cdc.gov, www.treas.gov/ofac and www.customs.gov.

MILESTONE EVENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Terms of Applicability.  The MILESTONE EVENT program is an exclusive program of Premier River Cruises who is solely responsible for its administration and Terms of Use. Milestone Event offers are provided to you, the customer, conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained here and within the “Terms of Use” section of the Premier River Cruises website. Your booking of a river cruise utilizing some or all of the features and/or benefits of the Premier Milestone Event program constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions and notices

Program Applicability. The MILESTONE EVENT program is applicable to a customer(s) who will “celebrate” a “qualified” event during the year of their travel. Travel does not need to occur on the “event” date, but merely within the calendar year of said event. Subject to the approval of Premier, Milestone Event special features including additional discounts apply to all guests who travel with the “celebrant” on the same ship and sail date, and who reserve their accommodations with Premier River Cruises.

Acceptance of any reservation under Premier’s Milestone Event program is at the sole discretion of Premier River Cruises. To qualify for any special offers and/or features of the Milestone Event program, you must inform the Premier River Cruises agent that you are a “celebrant” or traveling with the “celebrant” at the time of your initial reservation. Failure to do so may void any reservation

The Milestone Event program does not apply to all river cruise lines and applies ONLY to 7-night or longer river cruises.

Qualifying Events. Milestone Birthday: 50th, 55th, 60th, and thereafter in increments of 5 years up to and including ones 70th. Upon reaching ones 75th birthday and beyond, Premier is pleased to acknowledge any birthday that includes the celebrant in the traveling party. For these truly momentous Milestone events, Premier will also provide the Celebrant with additional special benefits, based on cruise selected

Proof of Eligibility. Premier River Cruises will require proof of the qualifying event. For Milestone Birthday, a copy of current passport or valid driver’s license will suffice. For Milestone Anniversary, a true copy of the marriage license shall be required. Exceptions to the above Proof of Eligibility shall only be allowed at the sole discretion of Premier River Cruises. All Milestone Event reservations shall be made subject to a timely receipt [2 weeks] of said Proof of Eligibility.

Milestone Event Benefits. Program benefits will vary by cruise line, ship and sailing date. Your Premier River Cruise agent will be glad to review all benefits with you upon your initial call or email.

Any request for special arrangements shall be made via email or in writing and is subject and their approval is at the sole discretion of Premier River Cruises and/or its agent(s).  Should any special arrangements involve extra costs, said costs will be fully explained and upon approval, billed directly to the customer

Should the Celebrant qualify for the “free” private car transfer to/from their home to home city airport, there are restrictions that do apply. The maximum distance of the one-way transfer shall not exceed 25 miles in one direction and the maximum number of passengers traveling in the car shall not exceed 4. Any exceptions to these restrictions must be approved in advance by Premier River Cruises

General. Cruise lines have very rigid and costly cancellation penalties and fees that are never waived. For this reason we urge each participant to review the Travel Insurance Protection materials found on this Premier River Cruises Website. In addition, information on Insurance Protection will be enclosure with your initial Premier invoice. For your protection and because there are time sensitive requirements to qualify for a “waiver of pre-existing conditions” Premier automatically adds the applicable insurance premium to your initial invoice. Should you elect not to take the travel protection, it is your responsibility to request it be removed.  Normal cruise line and/or Premier River Cruise cancellation fees do apply to all participants on a Milestone Event cruise.

The Milestone Events program is exclusive to Premier River Cruises and it is the sole judge of participant qualifications and what offers shall apply to each participant. We reserve the right to correct any informational or typographical errors on this page and throughout the website. © 2013 Premier Travel Group. All rights reserved worldwide. Effective 01-01-2011
