Travel Terms & Conditions
We are Queens of Virtue and are excited to help you with your travel needs. Please get familiar with our Terms & Conditions.
The following terms and conditions apply to any trip booked with Queens of Virtue (hereinafter referred to as “QoV” “our” “us”). By booking a trip with QoV you (hereinafter referred to as, “you” “your” or “traveler”) acknowledge that you (i) are 21 years of age or older, (ii) understand and accept these terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) and (iii) are entering into a contractual relationship with QoV.
All trip prices are as posted on our QoV website at the time of booking and do not include airfare. Trips are priced per person, based on shared occupancy. Single rooms may be available at an additional cost and the prices will be listed where applicable. Prior to booking, prices are subject to change without notice. If you are using our payment plan option, you must submit a non-refundable, non-transferable, per person deposit (equivalent to the first month’s installment payment or other amount determined by QoV in its sole discretion) at the time of booking to reserve your space.
Traveler understands and agrees to satisfy their balance in full no less than 60 days prior to the date of arrival. Should Traveler fail to submit the final payment 60 days out, a 10% late fee will be assessed each day based on the original amount.
If Traveler fails to submit payment in full by 45 days prior to the date of arrival, Queens of Virtue reserves the right to cancel booking and retain 100% of funds paid.
QoV will notify Traveler in writing of the date & frequency of the scheduled payments.
Credit Card Payment/Processing
QoV uses a third-party credit card processing company to provide Traveler with a convenient way of submitting payment. Traveler agrees to update Company’s records in the event that Travelers credit/debit card/bank account is closed, expires, or is no longer active for whatever reason. Traveler may contact QoV directly to provide updated payment information:
In the event that payment is attempted by QoV and is subsequently declined, Company will provide Traveler with a courtesy email notifying Traveler of the declined payment method. If the past due payment is not paid within three (3) days of its due date, there will be a 10% late fee assessed for that interval’s payment.
If payment has not been submitted within seven (7) days of the first payment attempt, QoV will cancel the Travelers booking and & retain all paid funds.
All payment to QoV is non-refundable and non-transferrable. This is because QoV has contractual agreements with our hotel, airlines, transportation, and other vendors that will not allow us to obtain any refunds.
Traveler agrees to not file a payment dispute or chargeback through their bank/financial institution and to instead utilize her travel insurance in the event that she can no longer attend the planned trip.
Traveler agrees to not file a chargeback in violation of QoV’s Refund Policy. In the event that a chargeback is requested and/or processed, Traveler agrees to repay QoV for the full amount and be responsible for any fees incurred in recouping payment, including attorney’s fees.
Passport and Travel Documents
Traveler is responsible for securing a valid passport. Upon signing up to attend a planned trip, Traveler will send via e-mail a photocopy of their passport, displaying the expiration date. Ninety (90) days prior to the Date of Arrival, Traveler will send an updated copy of their passport.
Some destination countries require a tourist visa to be secured before entering the country. Traveler understands that it is their responsibility to secure the visa and will do so at the time of purchasing Traveler’s airline ticket(s).
If a visa is required for your planned trip, Traveler agrees to purchase their airline ticket and obtain a visa within thirty (30) days of booking their trip.
It is the responsibility of the Traveler to ensure that there are adequate amounts of passport and visa pages within their passport booklet, in accordance with the requirements of the planned trip destination. QoV will not be liable in the event that Traveler fails to ensure that Traveler’s travel documents are in order.
Each Traveler is required to purchase a travel insurance policy within fourteen (14) days of booking their planned trip. The insurance policy must include a minimum of $100,000 of coverage and should cover emergency transportation/evacuation and trip cancellation in the amount of the planned trip costs, at minimum. Traveler will provide QoV with a digital copy of their travel insurance policy within fourteen (14) days of booking their planned trip.
QoV may include travel insurance with your planned trip.
Purchase of Airline Tickets
Traveler is responsible for purchasing their own airline ticket to the origination city of the planned trip. QoV is not responsible for any delays caused by the airline, missed flights due to Traveler error, or otherwise.
Traveler agrees to purchase their airline ticket as soon as possible, no later than 120 days prior to the Date of Arrival. Traveler will provide QoV with a digital copy of their airline reservation 120 days prior to the Date of Arrival.
One (1) week prior to the Date of Arrival, Traveler will provide an updated digital copy of their travel itinerary to QoV.
In the event that Traveler arrives prior to the planned trip Date of Arrival, transportation from the airport will not be provided by QoV. QoV will provide Traveler with a window of time (based on local time) during which transportation will be provided.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.
