Important Travel Information
It can be difficult to find out what are the requirements for documentation when entering a foreign country.
Rules and regulations change constantly. For important and timely travel information, reference our travel information
for frequently asked questions. Or give us a call!
All U.S. citizens will be required to have
a valid passport to enter the United States when returning from all destinations
outside the United States. Proper proof
of citizenship is your responsibility.
Boarding will be denied without
correct documentation. Check in at airport
for international travel is three hours prior
to departure. Flight schedules are subject to change and we require you to check
with us within 48 hours of your flight to verify your flight times are up to date.
Passengers of all ages returning to
the U.S. by air from any international
destination require a valid passport.
A state issued birth certificate with
government issued photo I.D. is no
longer acceptable. All passengers
18 and over traveling within the
United States or to any U.S. territory
(including Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Virgin Islands) require only a valid
government-issued photo ID.
For US citizens passports valid for six
months after the day of your return
are required. For details on how to
obtain a passport, contact your local
courthouse or post office. If you are
not a U.S. citizen, contact the
embassy of the country to which you
are traveling to be advised of proper
proof of citizenship. Failure to
comply with the above requirements
will result in denied boarding.
U.S. Customs currently imposed an $800
limit per person on the value of goods
you can bring into the country duty-free
from most countries. The amount varies
depending on the particular country to
which you travel. Also, you are restricted
from bringing certain types of goods (e.g.
fresh fruits, vegetables) back into the U.S.
WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
If you plan to get married in your
resort destination, be sure to check
with local tourist offices and consulate
of the country in which you are getting
married for legal documents that may
be required. Honeymoon packages
require you to supply a valid marriage

cases, a room MAY be made available
for storing hand baggage and for
changing prior to departure. However,
this is at the discretion of the hotel.
DINING DRESS CODE
It should be noted that although
casual dress is the standard by day, many
resorts have dress code requirements for
dinner. In many cases casual yet elegant
dress is suggested for women. Men are

jeans), proper footwear and shirts with
collars. Many gourmet restaurants may
require men to wear a jacket.

SAFETY TIPS FOR TRAVELERS
Traveling to destinations, domestic or
foreign, is rewarding. Tourists must be
aware, however, that potential problems
and risks to your personal safety could
exist anywhere. Please use the same
personal safety precautions and common
sense on your vacation. For example,
apply sunscreen, don't swim alone, avoid
display of cash, be especially careful of
low railings on hotel balconies, avoid
venturing out alone, and beware of dark
places and isolated areas, just as you
would at home. You may also wish to
review the travel information on the
State Department's website at

vacation, please notify the Manager in
resort who will make every effort to help
you. If the matter cannot be settled on
the spot, you must write and forward a
letter to Jackie's Travel Service within 28
days of the completion of your vacation.
Your letter will be forwarded to the
appropriate vendor or insurance
company we use if you purchased
insurance. The few complaints we
receive are normally resolved by
amicable settlement with them.
We reserve the right to give any
compensation in the form of vacation
