TRMS AND CONDITIONS

Last Updated: April 17, 2024.

All bookings are made with UnlockedRome LLC, a U.S.-based LLC (hereinafter “UnlockedRome”, “We”, “Us,” and “Our”). We are a travel consulting site and we provide unique travel experiences and curated visits (“Bookings,” or “Trips”), with the goal of exploring Ancient Rome’s most iconic and fascinating sites. To ensure the success of our Trips and give our clients a superior experience, we provide the following Terms and Conditions.
By booking a Trip with us you are deemed to have agreed to these Terms and Conditions and the terms and conditions of our suppliers (which constitutes the entire agreement between you and us) and your Booking will be accepted by us on this basis.

Before making a Booking with us you must ensure that you have read and understood these Terms and Conditions (and ask us any questions you may have). Please be aware that these Terms and Conditions contain waivers of liability as well as waiver of class action and venue selection and notice clauses. By confirming your booking, you are accepting all the Terms and Conditions laid out below and acknowledging that you have read the Terms of this Contract and agree with it. The services to be provided are those referred to in your booking confirmation invoice.

SECTION 1

1. TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance protection is encouraged for all our travelers and should be taken out at the time of the Booking. We also strongly encourage the purchase of additional Cancel for Any Reason Coverage. Travel Protection Plans including cancel for any reason coverage must be purchased in close conjunction with your travel purchase, so you should contact your insurance agent as soon as possible after booking the Trip.
If you choose to book a tour and/or travel without adequate coverage, UnlockedRome will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, for which adequate trip protection plan coverage would otherwise have been available.

You must provide your travel insurance policy number and the insurance company’s 24-hour emergency contact number before the first day of the Trip (including on a Waiver of Liability & Consent Agreement we will ask you to complete before traveling); you will not be able to join the Trip without these details. If you have travel insurance connected to your credit card or bank account, please ensure you have details of the participating insurer, the insurance policy number and emergency contact number with you rather than the bank’s name and credit card details.

UnlockedRome is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel insurance plans. UnlockedRome cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured’s existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection, call your insurer or insurance agent or broker.

Certain countries have a requirement for foreign visitors to have valid medical insurance on entry. If you are traveling from the USA, Canada, Australia, or any other country whose residents do not need a Schengen visa to visit Italy for less than 90 days, travel medical insurance is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended. For travelers with a Schengen visa, compliant health insurance is a requirement. UnlockedRome cannot be held responsible for denied entry if a traveler is unable to provide details to authorities of insurance or denial of entry for any reason. Failing to purchase an adequate travel protection plan could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. You also acknowledge that without adequate coverage, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs or expenses incurred.

2. PERSONAL TRAVELER INFORMATION
To confirm your travel arrangements, you must provide UnlockedRome with all the requested details which includes, but are not limited to, the full name as per passport, date of birth, nationality, passport number, passport issue and expiry date and any pre-existing medical conditions you have which may affect your ability to complete your travel arrangements. Failure to provide requested details may result in additional charges or non-refundable cancellation of your Trip.

2.a Age Requirements
Minimum Age: For the majority of our Trips the minimum age is 18 at the time of travel.
Maximum Age: We have no upper age limit, but we remind you that our Trips can be physically demanding, and passengers must ensure that they are suitably fit to allow full participation.

2.b Health Requirements
While we can provide details on some mandatory health requirements, we are not medical experts. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain proper and detailed medical advice at least two months prior to travel for the latest health requirements and recommendations for your destination.

2.c Pre-Existing Medical Conditions/ Persons with Disabilities
It is essential that you advise us before booking if you do have any disability or pre-existing medical condition that may affect your tour, or if you have any special requirements as a result of any disability or medical condition (including any which affect the booking process) so that we can assist you in considering the suitability of the arrangements and/or in making the booking.
The nature of many of the destinations we travel to means that in some cases they may be unsuitable for those who use a wheelchair or have a lack of mobility. However, we will be delighted to discuss the feasibility of your participation in any of our Trips.

UnlockedRome will communicate requests to suppliers but will not be responsible if ADA accommodations are not available. Any accommodations provided will be at the sole expense of the traveler requiring the accommodation. Please note that accommodations outside of the USA may not be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and may not have wheelchair accessibility.

Our suppliers are, unfortunately, unable to offer additional assistance to travelers with limited or restricted mobility and all such assistance will need to be provided by whoever the traveler is traveling with. Travelers with disabilities must notify UnlockedRome at the time of booking of status and of the identity of their non-discounted, paid travel companion who will be responsible for providing all necessary assistance. We may request that you provide a letter from your doctor confirming your fitness to travel.

3. PASSPORTS
You must carry a valid passport. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the Trip. We are not responsible if you are refused entry to a country because you lack the correct passport, visa or other travel documentation.

4. VISAS
You must have obtained all of the appropriate visas, permits and certificates for the countries which you will visit during your Trip. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of the correct visas, permits and certificates for your Trip; please refer to the Essential Trip Information for details. We are not responsible if you are refused entry to a country because you lack the correct visa or other travel documentation.

5. PHOTOS AND MARKETING
You consent that UnlockedRome and its partner tour companies may use images and videos of you and of your likeness taken during the Trip for advertising and promotional purposes in any medium we choose. You grant us and our partner tour companies an irrevocable, perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide license to use such images for publicity and promotional purposes.

6. AUTHORITY ON TOUR
Our group Trips are run by a local tour guide. The decision of the tour guide is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any traveler or staff member participating in the Trip. If you fail to comply with a decision made by a tour guide or interfere with the well-being or mobility of the group, the tour guide may direct you to leave the Trip immediately, with no right of refund.

We may also elect not to carry you on any future Trips booked. You must at all times comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and drug regulations of all countries visited, and you also agree to travel in accordance with our responsible travel guidelines.

7. MEETUP TOUR DATES & VALIDITY
Dates are valid and itineraries are indicative only. Our Trips are guaranteed to depart once they have either:
1) one fully paid traveler if the itinerary does not have a minimum, or
2) the minimum group enrollment number has been met.
This means at times we can have groups with small numbers of travelers. Many of our Trips are designed to fit with other departures to create a longer “combination” Trip; this means that some of your group may have already been traveling together for some time when you commence your Trip (this only applies to add-on Trips if you do not participate in the main Trip).

8. CHANGE OF ITINERARY
You acknowledge and agree that the nature of this type of travel requires flexibility, and you should anticipate the possibility of alternatives. The itinerary provided for each Trip is representative of the types of activities contemplated, but it is understood that the route, schedules, itineraries, amenities and mode of transport may be subject to alteration without prior notice due to local circumstances or events out of our control. While we endeavor to operate all trips as described we reserve the right to change the Trip itinerary. Please refer to updates sent by email before departure for the most recent updates to your itinerary.

Before departure: If we make a major change, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before departure. The definition of a major change is deemed to be a change affecting at least one day in five of the itinerary.

After departure: We reserve the right to change an itinerary after departure due to local circumstances or events outside of our control. In such emergency circumstances, the additional cost of any necessary itinerary alterations will be covered by you. Please note we are not responsible for any incidental expenses that may be incurred as a result of the change of itinerary such as visas, vaccinations or non-refundable flights.

9. DESTINATION RISK
Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. UnlockedRome urges travelers to remain informed on a daily basis as to current news, as well as to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories. Should you choose to travel to a country that has been issued a travel warning or advisory, UnlockedRome will not be liable for damages or losses that result from travel to such destinations.
In addition, you should consult with government websites to ensure that you are in compliance with all requirements for admittance into that country, including vaccination requirements, as well as understanding local laws that govern travel within a country, such as medical tests and tracking.
Travelers are encouraged to check the list of countries that require airlines to treat the passenger cabin with insecticides prior to the flight or while on the aircraft on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Web site, as this list is updated from time to time: http://www.dot.gov/office-policy/aviation-policy/aircraft-disinsection-requirements.

10. CLAIMS & COMPLAINTS
If you have a complaint about your Trip please inform your group leader or our local representative at the time in order that they can attempt to rectify the matter. If satisfaction is not reached through these means, any further complaints should be put in writing to us within 30 days of the end of the tour.

SECTION 2: COVID-19 CONDITIONS

1. VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS
UnlockedRome requires all travelers to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before the start of the Trip. We may require travelers to produce proof of COVID-19 vaccination during the enrollment process, and again at the start of the Trip. Proof of vaccination is a copy of your vaccination record (either paper or digital). Other vaccinations may be required, or recommended, depending upon the destination.

2. TESTING REQUIREMENTS
Each destination country has individual rules, requirements and regulations related to Covid-19 testing. You may be asked to show a negative test result, records of your vaccination, or recovery records in order to be admitted into the country. Any testing required for entry into a foreign country is at your own expense. UnlockedRome is not responsible if you are refused entry to a country because you lack the correct documentation.

On your return home to the USA or elsewhere, additional testing, requirements, or documentation may be required. You are responsible for understanding these requirements and must not rely on UnlockedRome to provide these details. You understand that you may become sick before, during, or after the tour and may not be able to travel and such cancellation or interruption will be subject to our cancellation terms below, for which we will not be liable.

3. COVID-19 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

By booking a tour at this time, you acknowledge the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk for yourself, that you may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by traveling and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death even if such injuries or losses occur in a manner that is not foreseeable at the time you book your tour. You acknowledge that exposure to such viruses or disease is an inherent risk of traveling that cannot be controlled or eliminated by UnlockedRome.

You acknowledge that due to the uncertainty of travel at this time, your tour may be postponed or canceled, or changes may be made to itineraries due to closures of certain sites or activities, for which there may be no refund. You may also be required to quarantine upon arrival in some locations. Some locations may require you to have a vaccination or proof of negative testing. Stopover countries’ requirements will also apply.
