MAJESTIC BLUE TRAVEL is not responsible for and may not be held liable for airline flight delays, cancellations, missed connections, lost or damaged luggage. Once you check in for your flight, it is the airlines responsibility to get you to your destination. It is highly advised to download the airline(s) app to keep updated on your flight.

If You Cancel Your Booking
In the event of a cancellation, MAJESTIC BLUE TRAVEL charges $75 per person cancellation fee if cancelled after the deposit is made and anytime time leading up to the trip.
Our agency is compensated from the hotel, cruise, and tour companies once a trip is booked and has been completed.

If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim your cancellation charges through your insurer. It is further understood that travel insurance generally only covers unforeseen events. Please note that most policies have a specific clause stating they do not cover epidemics and pandemics, or force majeure events especially when travel warnings are in place.

Your signed charge authorization is a binding agreement for charging your card, and as such, you waive any right to a chargeback in the case of trip delays, changes, or cancellation for any cause (except fraud), including a force majeure event, and you agree to refund policies and procedures as outlined in the terms and conditions of the suppliers operating components of your trip. If you attempt without our authorization to chargeback, reverse, or recollect a trip payment already made, we reserve the right to collect all additional costs, fees, and expenses associated with such chargeback, reversal, or recollection, including, without limitation, attorney fees.
Travel insurance is a vital part of your arrangements. We strongly recommend that you purchase adequate insurance for the duration of your travel. Travel insurance is a mandatory element of some travel arrangements. We are able to arrange travel insurance for you, furnish a quote, and although we are not licensed insurance agents, we can direct you to the appropriate answer for any questions you may have regarding travel insurance.
Important Notice Regarding Airline Reservations
If you arrive at an airline ticket or passenger check-in counter with your confirmed ticket and find that the airline shows no reservation for you – do not leave the counter. Check your ticket. If the status box shows “OK” for the flight in question, the airline policies typically require them to accommodate you on that flight, or if that is not possible, they must either find you a substitute flight or pay you denied boarding compensation. If necessary, ask to speak to a supervisor.
If You Have A Complaint
If you have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant Supplier (e.g. your hotel) immediately. Should they be unable to resolve the matter, please immediately contact us using the contact information you were provided upon booking.
