Play close attention to the statements that are underlined and the statements highlighted in red.


Reservations & Deposits

​A deposit along with a completed registration form is required by all private and hosted group travelers. Anyone (men and women) can join a hosted group travel event by securing their spot with a deposit as long as the final payment due date hasn’t passed and space is available. 


Hosted Groups

Minimum Monthly Payment Installments for Hosted Groups

​Once a reservation is secured with a deposit, a minimum monthly payment installment must be received before or on the 15th of each month (or whichever date designated on the event’s page) or the reservation may be cancelled and all previous payments will be forfeited. The amount of the minimum monthly payment installment will be specified on the event page.

PLEASE NOTE: Monthly payments submitted through the payment forms are not automatically processed. Your credit card will not be charged until your payment information has been submitted by Out of the Box Travel Agency to the travel supplier and successfully processed.

Roommate Payments for Hosted Groups

Roommate Payments

Roommates must complete separate registration forms and submit their deposits within 24 hours in order to secure a reservation. Once the registration forms and deposit is received each roommate can make separate payments. All roommates must state who will be sharing rooms on the registration form. It is all of the roommates’ responsibility to insure that their fellow roommates are making their monthly payments in order to avoid having the reservation occupancy rate being adjusted to match the number of travelers occupying the room. In this case, the remaining roommate(s) are responsible for paying the difference in price for the new adjusted occupancy rate. A summary of a roommate’s payments can be provided upon request.

Travel Insurance


​As your Travel Consultant, I feel it is my responsibility to recommend and educate you on Travel Protection to protect your investment.  Travel insurance is strongly recommended.  Travel protection can be used for medical expenses, trip interruption, baggage delay and loss, flight delay and cancellation, trip cancellation, travel assistance services, concierge service and much more.   




​All travelers traveling outside of the USA are required to have a passport book.  There are a few exceptions mainly closed looped cruise for US citizens born in the US.  All others will require a passport.



A visa may be required for certain international travel and is the traveler’s responsibility to insure the proper documents are submitted on time and a visa is obtained prior to the traveler’s departure date. 


Cruise Travel Documentation

​US Citizens on closed-loop cruises (cruises that begin and end in the same U.S. port) and travel to destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda are able to re-enter the United States with proof of citizenship other than a passport book or passport card.  Acceptable proof of citizenship includes an original or certified copy of a government issued birth certificate (raised seal and signature) and a government issued picture ID (typically, driver's license).  However Out of the Box Travel Agency highly recommend you travel with a Passport book.

 NOTE: Baptismal records and certificates issued by a hospital are not acceptable.  

It is strongly recommended that all guests travel with a valid passport book during their cruise. This is required to assists guests who may need to fly out of the United States to meet their ship at the next available port should they miss their scheduled embarkation in a U.S. port and guests needing to fly to the U.S. before their cruise ends, because of medical, family, personal or business emergencies, missing a ship's departure from a port of call, involuntary disembarkation from a ship due to misconduct, or other reasons.  It will be costly to pay for an expedite passport book and guest can experience significant delays and complications related to booking airline tickets and entering the United States if they do not have a valid U.S. passport book.
