TRAVELING WHILE PREGNANT
In the event you have entered your 32nd week of pregnancy, we recommend that you carry with you a letter from your doctor, stating the pregnancy is uncomplicated and confirming the expected date of delivery. In this letter, your doctor should state that you are in good health, and that (in their opinion) there is no reason why you cannot fly. YYZ Travel Group strongly recommends you contact the airline in advance of flying to confirm the regulations as outlined in their policy.
All Cruise lines will NOT accept guests who have entered their 24th week of pregnancy by the beginning of, or at any time during the cruise or cruise tour.

Some destinations charge a fee to all passengers when they are departing. This is called a departure tax and in most cases it is not paid in advance, but at the airport when checking in for the return flight. Please refer to your e-documents which will outline any and all applicable fees.
CHILDREN TRAVELING WITH PARENTS
Children must be in possession of a valid passport when traveling abroad with parents. For domestic travel, children under 18 years of age must present a birth certificate, health card, passport or other government-issued identification. The same rules that countries set for adults requiring passports apply for children. If the child is traveling with only one parent, a notarized letter is required giving the parent permission for the child to travel unless the parent has sole custody and provides documentation proving so.
The age at which a person is considered a child varies from country to country. Please call the appropriate consulate if they are:
Under 18 and traveling without their parents
Traveling with someone who is not the child’s parent (friend, uncle, brother etc…) or legal guardian.
CHILDREN TRAVELING ALONE
Unaccompanied Minor (UM) service ensures that children travelling alone receive the best of care, and are escorted by highly-trained airline staff from the moment they arrive at airport check-in until they reach their destination. It is the responsibility of the parent to contact the airline directly or YYZ Travel Groupo let them know their child will be travelling alone. All details about the Unaccompanied Minor service and the procedures must be reviewed prior to arrival at the airport.
TICKET & E-DOCUMENT PICK-UP
A web-link is sent prior to departure to the email address given at time of booking, along with instructions on how to retrieve your e-documents online provided your reservation has been paid in full.
