Magic Destinations Travel has disclosed the potential situations for using a passport card in lieu of a passport book and answered all questions regarding the practice. Magic Destinations Travel has offered advice to obtain a passport book for all travel outside of the United States. By signing this Waiver of Liability, Magic Destinations Travel and its affiliates are released from any liability, which may be incurred by failing to obtain a passport book. Following is a statement made by the below signed individual on behalf of the entire party traveling with them.
I understand that as of June 1, 2009, a valid Passport will be required for everyone in my party, regardless of age, for all travel outside of the United States. While a passport card is only valid for land & sea travel between the US & Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean region & Bermuda. The passport card is NOT acceptable for any air travel to or from the United States. A Passport BOOK is the ONLY accepted document for international air travel. We strongly urge you and your party to obtain passport books for your upcoming travel, as you will need them in case of several potential scenarios such as, missing the ship either in the port of departure, or interim ports during the itinerary or if a medical emergency arises
* Having the proper documentation is the sole responsibility of the traveler.
* Travelers who fail to present the necessary documentation, will be denied boarding, and be solely responsible for all fines, cancellation penalties, fees and additional expenses.
* Travel Insurance will not reimburse anyone for their travel expenses, if they're denied boarding for not having a valid passport.
* Your passport should not expire for at least six months, following the return of your travel.
