You MUST cancel your flights reservations prior to flight departure. If your flight reservation is NOT cancelled prior to flight departure time, you are considered a NO SHOW and will be charged full amount of the airline ticket, plus 35.00 processing fee and a 4% credit card merchant fee within 2 business days of the class start date.
Once you cancel, you are responsible for contacting EMRTC to reschedule your training within 5 business days of your cancellation. The new class date must be within 90 days of your cancel date. If you are not able to reschedule at this time, you are individually, financially responsible for full payment of the airline ticket, $35.00 processing fee and 4% credit card merchant fee.
Airline Cancel Policy
When the airline cancels a flight, they will notate in the electronic ticket record. If your flight has been cancelled you have 2 choices: 1) Obtain a rescheduled flight from the airline at the time of airline cancellation and continue your trip or, 2)you may request the airline to refund the ticket to the form of payment on the ticket and discontinue your trip.
The airline policy strictly states that you must be at the boarding gate no less than 30 minutes before your scheduled flight departure time. Should you miss your original departure flight for any reason and the airline cancels the value of the airline ticket, you are financially responsible for full payment of the airline ticket, $35 processing fee, and 4% credit card merchant fee within 2 business days of the class start date. Rio Grande Travel and EMRTC will not be responsible for any re-scheduling fees.
Rio Grande Travel accepts your Travel Request as a purchase order for a pre-paid, non-refundable, round-trip airline electronic ticket and pre-paid rental car to meet the EMRTC Travel Requirements. The Travel Request may be submitted by a third-party but the traveler is responsible for complying with these Terms and Conditions.
Authorized travel days include departing the day before class starts and return the day class ends or after depending on schedule. Please use the EMRTC Letter as evidence that you need time off not the airline electronic ticket. Plan to depart very early in the morning the day before class starts and return late afternoon or evening the day class ends.
ANY and ALL deviations from the standard class days and routing will result in the student purchasing the round trip ticket on personal credit card. Please advise in the “special request” area of the online travel form if you wish to purchase your round trip ticket yourself or if you would like a Rio Grande Travel agent to contact you 3 weeks prior to your class travel date to review flight options and obtain your credit card. Rio Grande Travel will supply you with an air travel quote for the class travel days that you will need to present to the school to work out reimbursement.
If you choose to do your own air travel and wish Rio Grande Travel to confirm a car for your class travel dates, please resubmit your form advising the time of pickup and drop for class travel days ONLY.
PLEASE BE SPECIFIC IN THE SPECIAL REQUEST AREA AS TO WHAT YOU ARE NEEDING RIO GRANDE TRAVEL TO PROVIDE YOU IN REFERENCE TO ALL DEVIATION REQUESTS.
Your nonrefundable airline ticket is issued 2-3 weeks prior to class travel date. We highly recommend using a personal email address on the online travel form as we will be sending an itinerary to you electronically. When using company email address, we cannot guarantee your will receive your itinerary as it may be blocked. If you have not received your electronic ticket itinerary 2 weeks prior to class travel date, please contact our office at [email protected]. Not receiving the itinerary will not be sufficient to relieve you of any Terms and Condition herein.
Rio Grande Travel will confirm seat assignments on segments eligible for advance seat assignments. If not available, the airline may assign seats at the airport ticket counter. Should you elect to purchase advanced or preferred seats, Rio Grande Travel and EMRTC are not responsible for reimbursing any fee.
Meals, Internet Access, pillows, blankets or alcohol will not be reimbursed
In most cases the airline re-accommodates travelers during delays. If you are going to be late to class, you are responsible for contacting Rio Grande Travel so that we can contact the rental car agency and EMRTC.
Your rental car is pre-paid. You only need a valid driver’s license to rent the vehicle. You must be 21 years of age or older to rent a car. The rental car includes a loss damage waiver. EMRTC authorizes mini-vans for larger groups (3-4 per van). If you have a special request to travel other than what is stated in the Authorized Travel Days paragraph above, for example; pick-up the car earlier or drop-off the car later, you have two options: (1) you may use your personal credit card to pay for the total rental car charges and seek reimbursement from EMRTC or (2) you may pick-up or drop-off the rental car on the authorized days and arrange your own ground transportation. You are financially, individually responsible for extra rental days, car upgrades, additional liability coverage, fuel charges, GPS, toll-roads or moving violations.
All airlines except Southwest Airlines charge a baggage fee. EMRTC will reimburse you for one airline baggage fee. You are responsible for presenting the original receipt to EMRTC.
