Air charter seats and hotel rooms are limited to our contracted capacity. Applications will be processed on a priority-based first-come, first-served basis to the capacity of our available space. Payment in full must accompany this application. All payments received by Conlin Athletic Tours for travel services on this charter program are protected in part by an escrow account as required by the Department of Transportation.
Due to world conditions, the U.S. government is utilizing charter aircraft for troop holiday travel, somewhat limiting the availability for bowl tours. It is possible that some return charter flights will be overnight. You will receive your charter times via email the week of Dec. 19, 2016. Conlin Travel, Inc. reserves the right to substitute equipment. Carrier liability with respect to luggage may vary. Checked baggage is limited to two pieces per passenger not to exceed 62″ and 55″ respectively in overall length, width, and height. The total weight of all suitcases may not exceed 50 pounds. In accordance with their filed tariffs, all airlines and any agents are governed by regulations issued by the Department of Transportation and will act in accordance with these regulations with respect to any circumstance (e.g., flight delays). In the event that tour participation does not warrant a charter aircraft, all efforts will be made to accommodate full tour participants on scheduled air. If you prefer to make your own scheduled air arrangements, then you may switch to the Land-Only Tour and receive a refund for the difference. If neither of the aforementioned options is suitable or available at the tour air price for you, then you may receive a full refund.
Include everything on the corresponding Air/Land Tour except air transportation and airport transfers.
While every effort has been made to honor your hotel preference, it cannot be guaranteed. The tour company has the right to substitute hotels when necessary and add or delete hotels as needed.
Under 2 years old. There is no charge for infants on the tour; however, a game ticket is required for a child of any age.
CHILDREN (Ages 2-17)
Children must share a room with parent(s) and do not count in room count total. Two adults rooming with two children would pay the double rate for the adults and the children’s price for the children. An adult must accompany children. One adult sharing with one or more children would pay single adult rate and children’s price for the children.
TRIPLE AND QUAD ROOMS
Triples and Quads refer to how many adults are in the room and not to how many beds are in the room or size of the room. Most Triples and Quads have two double beds. Some involve the use of cots or couches with pull-out beds.
DISABILITY SERVICE NEEDS
Persons with physical disabilities requiring wheelchairs or special assistance must notify Conlin Travel, Inc. as to the nature of the disability at the time of booking. Persons requiring extraordinary assistance must be accompanied by someone who can and will be totally responsible for providing all required assistance.
Travel insurance is strongly recommended, as it covers trip cancellation, travel accident, medical, and baggage insurance.

If we make major changes prior to departure, you have the right to cancel and receive a full refund. The following are major changes: 1) a change in the departure or return date, unless the change results from a flight delay experienced by the air carrier, or an overnight return flight. 2) a change in the origin or destination city, unless the change affects only the order in which cities named in a tour package are visited; and 3) a price increase of more than 10 percent occurring 10 or more days before departure. In no event can we increase your price less than 10 days before departure. If a major change must be made in the program, we will notify you within 7 days after first learning of the change, but in any event, at least 10 days prior to the scheduled departure. If, less than 10 days before scheduled departure, we become aware that a major change must be made, we will notify you as soon as possible. Within 7 days after receiving notification of a major change, but in no event later than departure, you may cancel your reservation and you will receive a full refund within 14 days after canceling. If a major change occurs after the departure of the flight which you are unwilling to accept, we will refund, within 14 days after your scheduled return date, that portion or your payment which applies to the services not accepted. If we must cancel the charter, we will notify you in writing within 7 days of the cancellation, but in no event later than 10 days before the scheduled departure date. We have no right to cancel the charter less than 10 days before departure, except for circumstances that make it physically impossible to perform the charter trip. If that occurs, we will make a full refund to you within 14 days after cancellation.
The rights and remedies made available under this contract are in addition to any other rights or remedies available under applicable law. However, we offer refunds under this contract with the express understanding that the receipt of that refund by a passenger waives any additional remedies.
