DISCLAIMER OF RESPONSIBILITY: While on a casino excursion, the casino host will verbally announce your departure time upon arrival.

Return transportation for customers left behind will be their responsibility and at their own expense.
DRIVER GRATUITIES: May be included in the price of the charter unless the chartering party specifically requests to have it excluded.
BOOKING POLICY: All motor coach charters will require a signed contract and, unless otherwise arranged, final balance is due fifteen (15) days prior to departure. In the event that payment is not received within the stated terms, the contracting party may lose the motor coach. There will be a $50 fee on any and each returned check. Future bookings are subject to non-payment of previous trips.
ITINERARY: To insure adequate driver preparation, we request a detailed itinerary listing all stops with adequate addresses and anticipated timing be received in our office at least 7 days prior to departure. It is the chartering party’s responsibility to insure adequate travel time to and from all destinations. The vehicle operator will be furnished with a copy of this itinerary and will be specifically instructed to follow it. The operator does not have the authority to deviate from the itinerary. Any change(s) to the itinerary must receive prior approval from an authorized TRAVEL KUZ official. TRAVEL KUZ has the absolute discretion and right to agree or decline to make any requested changes. Any changes to the itinerary may result in additional charges. Federal law regulates driver hours of service. TRAVEL KUZ will not compromise your safety by violating the legal limits, which are as follows: 1. No more than 15 hours on duty in any 24 hour period. 2. Of this 15 hours, no more than 10 hours may be actual driving hours. 3. After 15 hours on duty, the driver must have 8 consecutive hours off duty.
CHARGES: The charter price quoted will be based on the specific service requested. It is understood and agreed that additional miles, hours, or expenses will be paid for at specific rates by the chartering party, details of which can be determined by calling the charter department M-F 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Charges reflect laws regulating driver’s hours of service and all highway tolls anticipated based on the itinerary submitted. Parking, entrance fees and other miscellaneous expenses may or may not be included as detailed on the front of the confirmation. On trips in which the chartering party is securing overnight accommodations, it is the chartering party’s responsibility to reserve and pay for a single and separate room for each driver. Should fuel prices increase, we reserve the right to adjust the price accordingly with a fuel surcharge.
DELAY AND CANCELLATION POLICY: Delays caused by weather, traffic, or unforeseeable mechanical problems shall not constitute a liability against TRAVEL KUZ.

If the cancellation is received less than fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled departure date, the company will bill liquidated damages. If the cancellation is received less than three (3) days prior to the scheduled departure date, the company will bill or retain fifty (50) percent of the contracted prices as liquidated damages.

TRAVEL KUZ reserves the right to cancel any trip prior to departure and make a full refund if, in our opinion, the safe passage could be compromised due to acts of nature, authority of law, terrorism, war, accidents, road conditions, mechanical failures, work stoppages or weather.
EQUIPMENT: In the event of a mechanical failure of the vehicle, substitute equipment or transportation will be secured as soon as possible. Amenities on the vehicles, such as washroom, radio, CD player, DVD player, WIFI, and power inverters are optional equipment and are offered for the use of our customers free of charge; therefore no adjustments in the charges will be made if this equipment experiences a mechanical failure. From time to time, TRAVEL KUZ may provide a vehicle with a seating capacity larger than requested at no additional charge, unless the number of passengers traveling exceeds the originally requested vehicle size.
