important when traveling in groups. Each person must be seated during city driving and before the coach can proceed; but, you may
walk and move around the motor coach when traveling on interstate highways.

DISCLOSURE OF CONDITIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: In common with other tour companies, Travel Now reserves
the right to change or modify the itinerary as unavoidable circumstances may occur. Travel Now acts solely as agent
for the passengers, arranging for transportation, hotel and motel accommodations, sightseeing, and all other services, and does not
assume liability or injury to person or property, or for mechanical defects or failure of any nature, however caused or for any
substitution of hotels or of common carrier beyond their control, with or without notice, or for any additional expense occasioned
thereby. We reserve the right to change the itinerary or hotels as may be necessary for carrying out the tour, and to cancel any tour
for conditions beyond our control, including insufficient participation. In the event of any cancellations, all deposits will be refunded in
full. No refunds will be made of meals, sightseeing services, or any other part of the tour not utilized. Payment of the deposit will
indicate acceptance of all herein mentioned features and conditions by the purchaser of the tour. We reserve the right to accept or
reject any person as a member of our tour at any time. We wish to provide congenial traveling companions on all tours.

TOUR CANCELLATIONS: Each tour stated is priced on the assumption that a particular minimum number of persons will participate.
Thirty days prior to a departure date the reservations list is checked to see if the required number have made reservations. If the list
is reasonably close to the number required, a decision is usually made to run the tour. If, however, very few are participating, a
decision to cancel the tour must be made; and those who have made reservations are notified of the cancellation and their money
refunded. TravelNow does not like to cancel tours. Many hours of staff time and money have been expended before a
tour is even offered in our brochure. Itineraries have been written, lodging reservations made, attractions contacted, etc. All these
efforts are lost if the tour is canceled. YOU CAN HELP avoid cancellations by making your reservations early and encouraging your
traveling friends to do so. Often we receive several inquiries after a tour has been canceled; if those persons had called earlier, the
trip would have worked
