International Border Crossings
On any tour leaving the United States, it is the responsibility of each passenger to have in their possession proper documents and proof of citizenship.

Currently, land crossings to Canada and Mexico require a passport or other WHTI-compliant travel document.  U.S. Tours strongly advises all travelers have a valid Passport for any travel outside the United States.  Failure to provide proper ID will result in being denied boarding, no refund will be issued.

All air travel to destinations outside the United States and its territories will require a US Passport; generally valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel.  Some destinations require travel visa; visit travel.state.gov for the most up to date information.

Airline baggage fees are the responsibility of the guest and paid directly to the airline.

U.S. Tours Reservation Forms
In compliance with Homeland Security, dates of birth and passenger’s full legal name as shown on proof of citizenship will be required for cruise and air travel.

Additional Airline Requirements
On all flights returning to the USA travelers are subject to a security screening of all electronics larger than a cell phone (laptops/ipads/tablets, etc.).  You will be asked to remove all covers or casings from electronics prior to check-in.  In addition, any electronic equipment in disrepair or broken screen will not be allowed to travel.

Plan to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to their flight for domestic flights, 3 hours for international flights as advised by TSA (Transportation Security Administration) and CESAC (Specialized Forces for Airport Security and Civil Association).

For domestic air travel, all passengers with a driver’s license issued by a state that is still not compliant with the REAL ID Act (and has not been granted an extension) will need to show an alternative form of acceptable identification.  To check whether your state is compliant or has an extension, click here
