Travel Protection / Travel Insurance
Travelex International offers many optional services to enhance every travel experience. Options such as travel protection/insurance help protect passengers and their investment but are NOT automatically included in the cost of an itinerary to protect against third party default or bankruptcy, delay, trip interruption, trip cancellation, emergency medical expenses, emergency medical evacuation/repatriation, baggage loss, baggage delay, travel assistance and more. To cover many of the issues that might prevent a travel supplier from completely providing their services to you (including the potential of financial default or bankruptcy). Travelex International strongly recommends the purchase of travel protection/insurance. While no one travel insurance company can cover all circumstances, Travelex International does offer its clients access to several reputable travel insurance companies. Please read any travel insurance policies carefully and if you have any questions, please call the travel insurance company for clarification, since they have the final word on what is covered by a claim and what is not.
Travelex International has included a travel insurance brochure and application with this notice so you can review their coverage and policies.
Important Note: You are advised that you need to take the appropriate protection/insurance within a certain number of days from the deposit being paid to avoid waiving coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. The timeframe is imposed by the travel insurance company and is typically 7 to 21 days from the date of the deposit.
Travel Protection/Insurance is offered and strongly recommended for everyone. If you do not elect to accept travel insurance/trip protection, you will be required to complete a Travel Insurance Waiver Form, which is attached for your signature, specifies that you will be fully responsible for all financial charges and penalties regardless of the reason.
In this era of economic and political uncertainty, Travelex International encourages its clients to protect their travel funds by using a credit card and by purchasing travel insurance.
TSA Government Issued ID Card and REAL ID
I acknowledge that beginning October 1, 2021, every air traveler 18 years of age and older must present a REAL ID – compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States https://www.tsa.gov/real-id. Review the full list of acceptable documentation here: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification. If you are not sure if your ID complies with REAL ID, check with your state department of motor vehicles.
Travel Documents Notice
Travel Documents, including passports, visas, and health/vaccination certificates required are your responsibility – Valid passports are absolutely required for all international destinations and the expiration date should be at least 6 months following the return date of your trip. Some countries require that your passport have 4 to 6 blank visa/stamp pages. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met. When traveling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires that everyone carry acceptable identification in order to board a flight.
Information can be found here: https://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. The name, date of birth and gender that appear on the identification card must exactly match the same data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records. I acknowledge that my failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing me to miss my flight. Additionally, a visa and vaccinations may be required. Please note that even when a visa is issued, a traveler may be denied entry since each country’s local immigration officials make the final entry decision. Several factors including a past criminal record may contribute to the decision of the local immigration official(s). Should a visa not be issued, Travelex International is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip.
