Travellers With Physical Limitations
Israel Seminar will make all reasonable accommodations to meet the needs of our tour participants with physical limitations. Tour participants requiring any form of assistance or special accommodation are required to notify Israel Seminar in writing at the time of reservation and Israel Seminar will use its good efforts to accommodate the tour participant’s needs. Tour participants requiring assistance on a regular or routine basis must be accompanied by an individual responsible for providing those services. Tour managers, guides, drivers or other suppliers are not able to provide assistance other than on a sporadic basis as it makes it impossible for them to fulfill their regular and required obligations. Due to space limitations, special advance arrangements may need to be made to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers aboard motor coaches. Israel Seminar reserves the right to remove any person from a tour who has not provided the required notification and has not received written confirmation from Israel Seminar. All related expenses, including those to return home, will be borne by the passenger.
To ensure the desired group synergy, Israel Seminar reserves the right to accept, reject or expel any individual who is deemed disruptive or incompatible with the interests of the group. All expenses to do so will be borne by the passenger.
