- ALL INCLUSIVE HAWAII DEFINED: Our All Inclusive Hawaii Vacation Packages were totally designed and developed by our Company and we were the world's originators of this concept. There are no true all-inclusive resorts in Hawaii - therefore our Company has created these to meet this unique need. We have wholesale contracts with Hawaii's top Hotel and Resort brands and select the best range of hotels and resorts from these for our packages. We also contract with the best transfer and lei greeting companies and the best tour, activity and entertainment Companies, plus some of Hawaii's best restaurants - and combined these to create a "Hawaiian Style"SM All Inclusive package. (We have designed special menus at most of these restaurants for our packages). Three-plus decades of well-known and excellent family business reputation in Hawaii have enabled us to utilize the best quality suppliers yet receive very competitive rates from all of them - which is why our superb quality package rates are so low. Since there are no all-inclusive resorts in Hawaii - such as you would find in the Caribbean and Mexico - our family has devoted over thirty years perfecting these quality, yet affordable carefree Vacation packages - and perfecting the "flow" of the packages - and our simple and easy vacation guidelines will make your vacation easy and fun. We have several Customer Service support offices near our Hotels and in the same time zone in which our travelers are vacationing - in the unlikely event assistance is needed. Plus, each traveler even has a 24-hour hotline. You simply enjoy your relaxing smooth-flowing Hawaii vacation while we tend to the coordination details behind-the-scenes.
We offer three lines of inclusive Aloha Hawaiian Vacation packages. First are our PREMIER Packages - which are our main product line. Next we have the SAVER Packages which include budget hotels for those needing an economy option. Next we offer our EXPRESS Packages which offer quality, affordable shortened vacations. We also offer inclusive Weddings and Honeymoons. We are world's foremost expert in all-inclusive Hawaii travel to all four main Hawaiian Islands: Oahu/Waikiki Beach - Honolulu, Maui, Kauai and the Big-Island of Hawaii. Please beware of any company that "claims" to offer all-inclusive Hawaii packages - but are simply travel agencies selling world destinations. Your inclusive dream-of-a-lifetime vacation is much too important to settle for less than the best. Let Aloha Hawaiian Vacations and the Overman family "Make your dreams come true in Blue Hawaii".SM

- RATES: All rates shown are per person and are current rates in effect at time of printing (publishing), and are subject to change without notice. Operator does not send a bill for any payment - please mark calendar. Late payment and/or delayed receipt of properly signed Operator's Enrollment Form (Contract) may result in annulment of Cancellation and/or Rate Protection Plan, therefore resulting in rate increase/s and/or a Purchaser initiated cancellation of Vacation Package without TCPP (Attained Cancellation fees will then apply, with refund of TCPP). While every effort is made to ensure accuracy of our rates in print, on our website/s brochure/s or other, and when quoted by telephone, Operator reserves the right to make adjustments if found that rate was shown, charged or quoted incorrectly. All Child, Teen and Adult rates are based on age at time of travel. Options are not included in Basic Package Rate and are additional. See our Website for applicable Adjustments. Holiday Travel may have a Holiday Adjustment such as July 4th week, Thanksgiving week and Christmas, etc. Newly offered specials or unlikely price reduction adjustments can only be applied to current booked Vacation Package with cancellation of current booked Package and subsequent booking of a new Vacation Package.
- RATES INCREASES: Airfares, Hotels and Package inclusions and options may be increased at any time by our suppliers, immediately, and without notice, therefore Operator cannot guarantee rates until paid in full, and is under no obligation to provide a "grace period" during which bookings may be paid in full to avoid this increase. A unique RATE PROTECTION PLAN is offered by Operator, and is Highly Recommended (see below). In the event the Rate Protection Plan is not taken - and an increase takes effect - an additional collection will be necessary for any and all Vacation Package increase/s.
- RATE PROTECTION PLAN: Simply make a 39% deposit of the total Vacation price when booking and Operator will GUARANTEE Your Rates (for original departure date) - regardless of ANY amount of airfare, hotel, or other supplier increases which may take place prior to your departure date! (Some packages - such as Christmas travel may require a larger deposit to guarantee rates). Most promotional specials will require a 39% deposit. (Most other companies do NOT protect you from increases until you pay in full). The remaining 61% of the total Vacation price will be due 69 days prior to travel. An interest free payment plan can be arranged for the 39% deposit, as well as for the entire Vacation, but must be paid in full before vacation travel begins.
- GUARANTEED LOWEST PRICES: Operator's Guaranteed Lowest Prices refers only to Operator's All Inclusive Vacation Packages and consists of the following: Operator guarantees the lowest prices when compared to an exact matching product - meaning all vacation features when comparing to Operator's Vacation Packages are exactly the same (including hotel &room category) and with quality as good as Operator's, and is actually offered for sale to the general public and at the sole discretion of Operator. A few "copy-cat" companies have offered seemingly similar products, but with much lower quality, fewer choices, and fewer vacation features. These "copy-cat" companies often begin with a "seemingly" lower price - but have a much higher price than Operator's when the bottom-line is revealed. Beware! Operator gladly welcomes apple-to-apple comparisons.
- PAYMENT PLANS: Operator will arrange Payment Plans in special situations when needed and Operator charges No interest for Payment Plans. In all cases - full payment must be completed before Participants' &/or Purchasers' travel begins. A Payment Plan is an excellent way to make structured payments to make your dream Vacation come true.
- LATE BOOKINGS: Subject to availability, add $24pp (special handling) for booking within 3 weeks of departure date.
- DOCUMENTS: Documents cannot be mailed and travel cannot begin until paid-in-full and requisite documents are received by Operator. Documents will be mailed "priority" to Participant to arrive approximately 14 to 10 days prior to departure and with prior notice. E-Tickets are usually issued for flights. Documents may arrive later for late bookings and/or payment. Once documents are received by Purchaser and/or Participant, the security for these documents is solely their responsibility. A rate of $145pp will be assessed for replacement documents. Valid driver's license or valid government issued picture ID is mandatory for all flights.
- CHANGES: A Per Person Fee of $59 will be assessed for each change made up to 6 weeks prior to departure date after booking, and $87 thereafter. This applies to any change of original booking, before departure (if possible), including hotel or room category (if available), and to Vacation features and options. Changes of initial departure and/or return travel date is not considered a change-but is considered rescheduling. Changes made after documents are mailed, but before original flight check-in time, are $125 per person. Change fee will apply even if caused by airline-originated schedule changes. In some cases, a hotel charge of 3 nights' accommodations (or more) on each island will apply when change is made during the last 9 days before departure. (Important: Any change made to a booking for which the price has been guaranteed for original travel date will result in the new booking being re-priced at the Operator's current internal price in effect at time change is made). Changes made in return transportation must be made by the Participant/Purchaser directly through the airline/s from which the Participants' tickets were purchased, and there may be change fees and an increased fare imposed by carrier/s, and is subject to availability. No changes to air routing can be made after departure by Operator. Changes in return which would result in additional monies owed to the carrier/s are due immediately and payable directly to the carrier/s. A change in travel date is treated as a "rescheduling" only if the new travel date is booked at the same time as the original travel is cancelled, and before Vacation travel has begun. This can only be done if the TCPP was taken, and is subject to current fares and change fees and is subject to availability. Once Vacation travel has begun, all changes made to itinerary come under above guidelines and are not protected under The Trip Cancellation Protection Plan. Call for rescheduling fees and details. In all other cases cancellation rules apply. A name change will be treated as a cancellation of the original reservation with appropriate fees - and a new reservation must be made in the new name.
- CANCELLATIONS: All cancellations require Operator's Vacation Cancellation number, issued at time of cancellation. Refunds for cancelled reservations (which are not covered by the TCPP) are subject to the following per person administrative fee schedule: When your notice is received directly by the Operator (and an Operator's Cancellation number is obtained) eighty-seven (87) or more days prior to departure date-Full refund less Forty-three percent (43%) fee, eighty-six (86) to fifty-nine (59) days prior to departure date - sixty-three percent (63%) fee, fifty-eight (58) days to thirty-eight (38) days prior to departure date - seventy-nine percent (79%) fee, Thirty-seven (37) days to six (6) days to departure date - eighty-nine percent (89%) fee; Zero ($0) Refund for later cancellations and no refund for "no shows" regardless of cause, including denied travel for lack of required documentation, security issues, or other. Operator assumes no responsibility for non-availability during weekends, holidays, off-hours, etc. Operator Strongly Recommends Trip Cancellation Protection Plan. Airfare is non-refundable and flight tickets and airfare are property of the Operator when a cancellation occurs. Percentages listed above are figured on total Vacation Package price (including Basic Package Rate, Adjustments, Options, and Misc. charges). Once a vacation has begun, there will be no refund made for any unused or partially used Vacation feature/s, service/s, choices and/or options, including flight, hotel accommodations, activities, meals, car rentals, etc. regardless of circumstances resulting in these not being used by Participant/s. Unused flights are non-refundable. In all cases, cancellation fees will apply and monies are non-refundable for any reason, including sickness and/or other emergencies. Although (at the time of publishing) Operator has never had to do this - Operator does reserve the right to cancel any Vacation prior to departure for any reason. Should this happen, refunds will be made without obligation and/or liability to Operator. Operator is not liable for improper ID, security delays, or other travel delays. Vacation is non-transferable. An Operator cancellation or rescheduling number can be issued only during Operator's Hawaii Customer Service Office normal business hours.
- TRIP CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN: See below for details.
- PROOF OF CLAIM: Any claim of illness or injury must be valid and supported by the submission of a detailed, verifiable, original medical certificate signed by a board certified physician with the full specificity of the law. A death certificate with raised seal is required in the case of death.
- REFUNDS: Refund will be mailed within 45 days of Operator's issuance of Vacation Cancellation number and Operator's receipt of ALL of the Participants' Vacation airline tickets, hotel, meal, tour and activity vouchers, and ALL other travel documents and items issued to Participant and/or Purchaser. Under no circumstances will refunds be made until all the aforementioned items have been received and signed for by the Operator. (Must be returned to Operator by registered mail with the Operator's signature required). All refunds are issued only upon Participant/s &/or Purchaser/s understanding that acceptance of the refund from Operator is on the express condition that Operator is released from all further liability and Participants/s &/or Purchaser/s waive all additional rights and remedies under this contract or any applicable state, federal or foreign law.
- AIR TRANSPORTATION: Operator features most major airlines for air transportation between the Mainland and Hawaii; however, Participant/Purchaser may book their own flight to Hawaii with a reduction in the Operator's price. The Trip Cancellation Protection Plan (if taken) will not cover or "protect" the flights that Participant/Purchaser book on their own. The decision as to utilize flights obtained by the Operator or by the Participant/s must be made at the time of booking, and may not be changed at a later date. The passage contract in use by the airline, when issued, constitutes the sale agreement between passenger and the airline. Specific airline/s, flight times, flight schedules, layovers and seating arrangements are not guaranteed and form no part of this contract. Seating arrangements have become increasingly difficult - and it is recommended that Participant &/or Purchaser obtain their own flights for control of seating arrangements, if possible. Flight schedules and times are subject to change without notice. It is therefore the responsibility of the passenger to reconfirm flight times as instructed. Airline/s are solely responsible for all expenses incurred due to airline delays or other problems, injury, or death. Operator is not responsible for any expenses incurred due to airlines, security, weather, natural disasters, terrorist acts, labor strikes, government shutdowns, delays or other - including, but not limited to, airfare costs, hotel, transfers, meal costs and other damages or retributions. A valid Government issued picture ID is required for all flights, such as a valid State Driver's License. International travelers are responsible for obtaining All USA, State, and Federal Government Travel and entry requirements. Participant/s are now required by the Government, and are responsible for providing Operator with Participant/s full and complete name and date of birth. Operator is under no financial (or other) obligation if government requirements are not met by Participant/s, whether listed herein or not. Check with Airline/s for current Government regulations. Any Vacation Package that includes flight/s, which is booked within 45 days of travel, may require a flight surcharge and may possibly need to be booked by the Participant/Purchaser directly - with Operator assistance if needed. Operator does not include flights for any Package booked 30 Days or less from departure date. Holiday Travel may have a Holiday Adjustment, such as July 4th week, Thanksgiving week and Christmas, and so forth. There may be a Fuel Adjustment (Air Adjustment) due to fluctuations of fuel prices.
- AIRPORT SECURITY: Please see current government Website or call 1-866-289-9673 for all airport security rules and regulations. Operator is not responsible for Participant/s' violation of government security rules and regulations, nor is Operator responsible for fees to Participant/s due to failure to comply with such. Operator is not responsible or liable for loss to Participant/s and/or Purchaser/s for replacement of missed flight/s or other loss due to Airport Security delays - whether caused by Participant, Airport Security, or other. Please check-in for flight as early as recommended by the airline/s. It is Participant/s' responsibility to obtain current airport check-in times; however, Operator recommends Participant/s to check-in for flights at least two (2) hours prior to flight departure time/s for Mainland to Hawaii flights and to factor in time needed to park car at airport.
- BAGGAGE: Payment for Participant/s Airline checked baggage is NOT an inclusion in Operator's Vacation Packages. Operator has no way of pre-paying this fee. The Operator (or its agents) shall not be held responsible for loss, damage, inconvenience expenses, or delay while baggage is in the custody of airlines, Transfer Company, hotel, or other. Travel accident/baggage insurance may be purchased at Airport, and is Highly Recommended. The Operator (or its agents) shall not be responsible for the loss or damage to passengers' baggage. The liability of the airline/s for loss or damage to baggage shall be limited in accordance with the terms of the carrier's liability insurance coverage (call airline/s for details). If Airline/s, Transfer company (or other), due to any cause whatsoever, is liable for loss or delay of or damage to your baggage, settlement will be made directly with Airline/s, Transfer company (or other), and not Operator. Call airlines for current baggage information. Contact your Airlines for current amount of bag/s allowed, luggage size and weight and carry-on info. Most Airlines now charge for baggage (and baggage weight) and it is the responsibility of the Participant &/or Purchaser to check with your Airline/s for the price. Any baggage charge/s must be paid directly to the Airline/s upon flight check-in by the Participant, and cannot be paid by the Operator. Participant should bring appropriate funds for the baggage charges. Operator is not responsible for reimbursing Participant for any charges for checked baggage. Tips for airport porters are not included.
- HOTELS/RESORTS: General Check-out time is approximately noon (varies with each hotel). Check with Operator for check-in times. In the unlikely event of overbooking by the hotel/s/resort/s in our Vacation Package the liability to substitute accommodations is the responsibility of the hotel/s/resort/s affected. Operator reserves the right to substitute hotel/s/resort/s of similar or better quality. Check-in is approximately at 3 pm. Hotel is solely liable for any problems or loss to Participant. Operator recommends using the Hotel room safe to store valuables. Hotel amenities shown may change at any time without notice. Double Occupancy (Dbl.) means two paying adults staying in same room. A Single Adjustment will apply to any room with only one paying adult staying in the room. Hotel Resort Fees may be charged directly by the Hotel/Resort to the Participant and is not to be paid by the Operator. All Neighbor Island Resorts have Resort Fees, and on Oahu the Sheraton, Westin, and Aqua Hotels have Resort Fees. Hotels may initiate a Resort Fee without prior notice to Operator and/or Participant/s &/or Purchaser/s and such fee will be collected directly by the Hotel from Participant. Operator is not responsible for this or any Resort Fee unless clearly stated on Operator's Website. A credit card or cash deposit may be required by Hotel upon check-in as a security deposit for incidental charges, etc.
- VACATION FEATURES:
Operator reserves the right to rearrange Vacation itinerary to match suppliers availability, etc. and to substitute a comparable Vacation activity, meal, etc. in the unlikely event this would be necessary due to supplier availability, etc. Most Dining Gratuities Are Included but other Tips not specifically mentioned are not included. Most breakfasts are abundant Buffet Breakfasts or full American Breakfasts, and Continental Breakfasts will be included only when clearly specified. A Continental
Breakfast is usually coffee, tea, juice, pastries, toast and fruit, or there may be variations of this. Participant/Purchaser agree that Additional Vacation Options and/or Choices which are added to Participants Vacation Package after the initial Enrollment Form has been completed and Signed - will apply to All Operator's Terms and Conditions as listed herein - although an additional signature is not required for these add-ons. Restaurant menus are subject to change-without notice. When booking an Aloha Hawaiian Vacation, all BOLD Vacation Features clearly specified as inclusions on Operator's Website at time of booking are included (nothing more-nothing less), plus paid for Choices, Selections and Options. There is no refund for unused Vacation Features, Choices, Selections or Options if cancelled by the Participant &/or Purchaser, or if Participant/s is/are a "no-show" for an activity. However if these are cancelled solely by the Supplier due to inclement weather conditions or other, the Operator and Supplier will attempt to reschedule these to another date, and will refund Purchaser net amount of activity if unable to reschedule (this applies only to activities cancelled due to inclement weather which may occur while Participant/s is in Hawaii and solely at the Suppliers' discretion). Most National Park fees are included for tours, however there is an approximate $7pp charge for the entrance at Hanauma Bay on Oahu which is required to be paid directly at the entrance of the Bay. Operator is not responsible for closures due to government shut-downs or other.
- RENTAL CARS: Each Rental Car day included in Vacation Packages consists of a 24-hour period beginning at the time driver/s pick-up the car. No refund will be made if car is used less than a 24-hour period. Driver must be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver's license and major credit card. Rates include Unlimited Mileage. Renter/Driver is responsible for Gas and Refueling Charges, Optional Collision Damage Waiver, Medical Coverage, Personal Accident and Effects Coverage, Infant Car Seats, Second Driver Fee, Optional Supplemental Liability Coverage, Upgrade Payment (if desired), Taxes, per day Hawaii Rental Motor Vehicle Surcharge Tax, any Overtime Charge, Drop-Off Charges, Parking Fees, Fines, Suits, Towing Fees, Accidents, other options and incidentals purchased or rented from the Rental Car Company, any and all charges resulting from an accident, and any other additional Liability and charges. Operator recommends full insurance protection. Upgrade Rates listed are to be applied when upgrading from Economy Car that is included in most Neighbor-Island Vacations listed on our Website. Car Rental Rates are for cars to be rented when no car is included in Vacation Package. Upgrades and Car Rentals are subject to availability. Convertibles go fast - Book Soon! Car models listed are those currently (at publishing) provided by our suppliers, and are to give a general idea of the model Participant will receive, but other similar models may be substituted by Rental Car suppliers. Car Rentals run in 24-hour consecutive periods. Example: Car Rental time begins when car is to be picked up on arrival at Neighbor-Island, which is usually around noon. This results in car being due back around noon on Participant's last day on Neighbor Island. As most flights out of Neighbor Island are in the evening, this results in an overtime charge for the Participant. We highly recommend renting the Neighbor Island car for 1 Extra Day to avoid this unexpected and sometimes excessive charge by the Rental Car Company. Rental Cars are to be picked up at the airport on all Neighbor Islands, and no Airport-to-Hotel transfers are provided on the Neighbor Islands. Rental cars are available on Oahu as a "Choice" or as an Option. Hotel and other parking fees are not included on any island unless specifically stated as included. Resort fees are not included at any Resort/Hotel (unless clearly stated as being included), and are to be paid directly by the Participant to the Resort/Hotel. Car Rental Companies have a No-Smoking Policy and require Participants to agree to not Smoke in the Rental vehicle, and Rental Car Company may impose a fine for violations for this policy. Check with Rental Car Company for their other rules and guidelines. Please obtain a Rental Car Drive Guide when picking up the car - as these are some of the best island maps available.

Operator is under no obligation to pay for Lap Child/s' flight/s if Airline/s initiates a charge (whether with notification or without) - regardless of info on Participants'/Purchasers' Enrollment Form: Call for information and details.

Avoid walking on rocks along the ocean - there may be a sudden surge of waves "out of nowhere". Flash floods sometimes occur along streams. Hike only with others, only on public hiking trails and take care not to wander off trail. See officials for hiking info. Avoid isolated areas, and always drive with care, etc. Oceans have sharks.

Operator is not responsible for theft of or lost items or money. A sunburn can greatly diminish one's enjoyment of Paradise, Operator recommends applying plenty of high SPF waterproof sunscreen.
- ALCOHOL: Some of the Vacation Package activities include complimentary alcoholic beverages as a standard feature. Operator's recommendation is moderation. Operator cautions those who participate in alcohol consumption to take care not to drive, cross streets, swim, and etc. while under the influence. Participant &/or Purchaser waives any claim against Operator and Operator's Representatives and Marketing Agents for any accident, loss, injury, damage, death or other cause to Participant and/or others due to non-compliance of this adamant recommendation - or for any alcohol/drug related situation.

OUR TWO UNIQUE PLANS THAT OFFER FINANCIAL SECURITY
- TRIP CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN (hereinafter referred to as "TCPP"): Cancellation penalties can be severe, however, our unique and excellent Trip Cancellation Protection Plans can add financial security and peace of mind. TRIP CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN is offered as follows for a minimal per ADULT rate of $58 (Teen and Child $39) for PREMIER Packages without Flights included - and per ADULT rate of $98 (Teen and Child $69) for PREMIER Packages with Flights included - and $39 per ADULT (Teen and Child $19) for SAVER & EXPRESS Packages. If taken, Operator will WAIVE ALL cancellation fees as stated in the Cancellation section of Operator's General Information, Terms and Conditions for cancellation for Any cause up to 49 days prior to departure date, and thereafter (until initial departure check-in time) for death of participants immediate family member (parent, sibling, children, or grandparent) or medically verifiable unforeseeable serious illness or serious injury of Participant. (Normal cancellation fees as per Cancellation section of Operators General Information, Terms and Conditions apply if TCPP is declined.) Serious illness and injury are defined as an illness or injury that would cause Participant to be medically prescribed bedridden during the time of scheduled vacation (Excludes common cold and flu). The TCPP may be purchased only when initial Vacation deposit is made. Later payment cannot be accepted, and if it is accepted by mistake, will be non-bindingly refunded upon knowledge of mistake. If TCPP is purchased, and the Vacation Participant &/or Purchaser cancel (up to initial departure check-in time), ALL monies paid to Operator for Vacation Package and Adjustments, less the per person TCPP rate, deductible and options, will be refunded (see REFUNDS Section on Gen. Info-Terms and Conditions). (An Operator Cancellation number required). Options may also be covered ($50 option deductible) for an additional $20 per person. Participation in the full TCPP is Strongly Recommended. The TCPP deductible is $287 for Premier Packages, and $183 for Saver & Express Packages, which will be WAIVED if Vacation is rescheduled instead of cancelled. If TCPP was taken, Participant &/or Purchaser may reschedule up to 47 days from initial departure date without a fee and at original Basic Package enrollment rates, and travel up to 300 Days from date of rescheduling; and with a rescheduling fee of $185pp for Premier Packages and $98pp for Saver & Express Packages for rescheduling 46 days or less from initial departure date. An Operator rescheduling number is required and rescheduling is not available once vacation begins. New travel date is required when rescheduling. (Rescheduling is subject to flight and hotel wholesale availability and current Adjustment rates apply). TCPP expires immediately once Participant/s travel has begun. Original TCPP purchased does not apply to rescheduled or subsequent travel and is nontransferable. There is no cash value for non-used TCPP. TCPP is calculated per couple (including their minors) when more than one couple is traveling together. CANCELLATION guidelines apply to Participant/s' &/or Purchaser/s' vacation if not covered by TCPP. The TCPP does not cover any flights (airfare) that Participant/Purchaser purchase on their own and which is not included in the Operator's Vacation Package. TCPP is not offered for Christmas travel: December 14 - January 7. Call 1-800-256-4211 for other details. Payment of Vacation Package deposit verifies Participant/s' &/or Purchaser/s' acceptance of and agreement to all the Operator's General Information, Terms and Conditions and to the Arbitration Agreement General Information. This unique Plan is Strongly Recommended.
- RATE PROTECTION PLAN: Simply make a 39% deposit of the total Vacation price when booking and Operator will GUARANTEE Your Rates (for original departure date) - regardless of ANY amount of airfare, hotel, or other supplier increases which may take place prior to your departure date! (Some packages - such as Christmas travel may require a larger deposit to guarantee rates). Most promotional specials will require a 39% deposit.
