These terms and conditions apply to your relationship with Jen Mitchell Travel (“we,” “us,” “our”). Our ground operators often have terms and conditions that will be provided upon receipt of any itineraries or engagement with them. It is the client’s (“you,” “your,”) responsibility to read and understand all terms and conditions. By giving us your credit card, you agree to the following.

Agency: Jen Mitchell Travel FST #TI-69484 is an independent affiliate of McCabe World Travel, and a proud member of Virtuoso®. As a travel consulting and concierge service, we liaise with suppliers (in-country ground operators, hotels, cruise lines, multi-line reps, hotel booking agents, tour operators) to provide our clients with the best service possible. As such, while the client works directly with us, any deposits or final payments are rendered to the supplier unless alternate arrangements have been made in advance. Jen Mitchell Travel does not operate, control, or otherwise provide the services of the independent travel vendors. Hence, the client agrees that Jen Mitchell Travel acts only as agent for the client in acquiring transportation, hotel accommodations, sightseeing and other privileges, or services for the clients’ benefit, and on the express condition that Jen Mitchell Travel shall not be responsible for any loss, accident, injury, delay, defect, omission or irregularity which may occur or be occasioned, whether by reason of any act, negligence or default of any company or person engaged in or responsible for carrying out any of the arrangements, or otherwise in connection therewith.

Fee Structure: Jen Mitchell Travel offers concierge level travel curating services. As such, we charge a customized professional, non-refundable planning fee per trip. Typically, we discuss this fee in our initial complimentary consultation call; any changes in parameters will necessitate an additional fee.

We also may need to input the passport issue date or expiration dates. If you insist that you know how your name is spelled on the identification, and refuse to give us a copy of the passport, we will not book your itinerary until we have it.
