Escorted tours are fast paced, often requiring lengthy walks over uneven terrain. In the interests of group harmony, clients should be able to maintain the pace of the tour.

Passengers are required to advise Ideal Getaways, LLC of their accessibility requirements prior to booking in order for Ideal Getaways, LLC to determine if reasonable accommodations are available.

Some private airfares, such as an " Ideal Getaways, LLC Travel Airfare", are not eligible for mileage or may qualify for reduced mileage, even if the same airline class of service is eligible for full mileage when sold as an "Instant Purchase" published airfare. Not all published airfares are eligible for mileage. Ideal Getaways, LLC will record frequent flier numbers when provided by the passenger prior to travel documents being issued. However, the addition of frequent flier numbers to airline records does not guarantee mileage eligibility which is at the sole discretion of each airline. Airline schedule changes may result in flights which were originally eligible for mileage accrual no longer being eligible.
