The UNC-TV Foundation retains the right to decline to accept or to retain any person as a member of this trip who, in the opinion of the UNC-TV Foundation, is unfit for travel or whose physical or mental condition may constitute a danger to themselves or to others on the trip, subject only to the requirement that the portion of the total amount paid which corresponds to the unused services and accommodations be refunded. Tour participants requiring special assistance, including without limitation those who permanently or periodically use a wheelchair, must be accompanied by someone who is fit and able to assist them and who will be totally responsible for providing all required assistance. 

The UNC-TV Foundation reserves the right to protect the well-being and full enjoyment of the tour for all tour participants. The UNC-TV Foundation reserves the right to reject any person as a tour participant, as well as to expel from the tour any participant whose conduct is deemed incompatible with the interest of the group as a whole. Any additional expenses that are incurred as a consequence of such an action are the sole responsibility of the expelled tour participant. 


All cancellations for any reason whatsoever must be received by the UNC-TV Foundation in writing or by e-mail on or before the dates specified below and will be subject to the following fees: cancellation from January 29, 2016, to May 19, 2016, forfeiture of 30% of the total tour participant’s cost; from May 20, 2016, to October 21, 2016, forfeiture of 100% of the total tour participant’s cost. Because these cancellation policies will be strictly enforced, the UNC-TV Foundation strongly recommends trip cancellation insurance.
