Pineapple7 LLC Terms and Conditions

Pineapple 7 LLC provides concierge level travel services for our clients. We believe in going to the end of the road in order to experience the unknown. We take pride in making all our clients’ trips memorable and special and are excited to be your partner in this journey.

These terms and conditions apply to your relationship with Pineapple7 LLC  (“we,” “us,” “our”). Our ground operators often have terms and conditions that will be provided upon receipt of any itineraries or engagement with them. It is the client’s (“you,” “your,”) responsibility to read and understand all terms and conditions. By giving us your credit card, you agree to the following:

Agency: 

Pineapple7 LLC is an independent affiliate of Largay Travel, CST# 2109263-80, and a proud member of Virtuoso®. As a travel consulting and concierge service, we liaise with suppliers (in-country ground operators, hotels, cruise lines, multi-line reps, hotel booking agents, tour operators) to provide our clients with the best service possible. As such, while the client works directly with us, any deposits or final payments are rendered to the supplier unless alternate arrangements have been made in advance. Pineapple7 LLC does not operate, control, or otherwise provide the services of the independent travel vendors. Hence, the client agrees that Pineapple7 LLC acts only as agent for the client in acquiring transportation, hotel accommodations, sightseeing and other privileges, or services for the clients’ benefit, and on the express condition that Pineapple7 LLC shall not be responsible for any loss, accident, injury, delay, defect, omission or irregularity which may occur or be occasioned, whether by reason of any act, negligence or default of any company or person engaged in or responsible for carrying out any of the arrangements, or otherwise in connection therewith.

 

Service Fees: 

Pineapple7 LLC offers concierge level travel curating services. As such, we charge a customized professional, non-refundable design fee per trip. Typically, we discuss this fee in our initial complimentary consultation call; any changes in parameters will necessitate an additional fee. This fee is collected prior to working on your itinerary and is not part of the cost of your reservations. The fee is per trip and is not transferrable to future travel plans.

  • Itinerary Design: $250-$500 includes 4 hours of service and up to 3 full proposals 

  • Expediting fee: For any trip occurring within 4 weeks (or 8 weeks during holiday time (Christmas, Presidents Weekend, Easter)) of reaching out to Pineapple7 LLC, the planning and management fee is minimum $900.

  • Additional Service Fees: If, after three full proposals have been presented and the client wishes to start over, there is a $100/hour surcharge. We will advise when this will occur.

  • Cruise or group: $30 per person

  • Changes and Cancellations: All changes and/or cancellation to an itinerary must be made in writing. Any changes to a booking past the deposit will incur a $45 change fee. Any changes to a booking made past the final payment will incur a $100 change fee.

  • Any cancellations will incur a $75/person cancellation fee. All fees are on top of any fees that the supplier levies. Pineapple7 LLC strongly recommends the client purchase travel insurance in case of any unforeseen event.

Delivery of travel documents: 

We provide all of travel documents via email, mobile app and/or personalized web site. Should you want your documents sent to you, you will be charged shipping fees. All travel documents (cruise, tour, hotel, etc) will be packaged and shipped to you via USPS Priority or FedEx. Please advise us if you wish someone to sign for the documents when they arrive, otherwise they will ship with no signature required. Please check all documents when you receive them and call us if you have any questions.

Prices and Currency Fluctuations: 

Prices are quoted in the home currency of the ground operator, tour operator, airline, cruise line, or hotel and all prices are current at time of quotation. We endeavor to provide an estimated US equivalent, however currency fluctuations occur and we are not responsible for any increase in price due to these. 

All prices are subject to change until booked or ticketed. This includes, but is not limited to, airfare, hotels, cruises, tours, and transportation. Availability is also subject to change until booked or ticketed. Pineapple7 LLC is not responsible for price changes on behalf of the airline, hotel, cruise line, tour company, or car company, nor are we responsible for lack of availability when we have given a proposal and the client has not given us an answer in a timely manner. 

We have no special knowledge of suppliers’ financial condition and no liability for supplier defaults or for recommending future travel credits with suppliers that may be out of business by the time the client tries to use the credits.

If requested, we will assist with obtaining any refunds due or rebooking trips using future credits, but we will charge a nonrefundable fee for such services.

Ground Operator Price Breakdowns: When we provide clients with a full packaged itinerary that includes a variety of services including but no limited to hotels, tours, and transfers, from a ground operator (also called a “DMC” or “onsite”) we do not provide breakdowns of the services provided. Our ground operators have contracted rates with many of their own suppliers and as such we do not publicize this confidential information.

Credit Cards: 

Pineapple7 LLC processes all service fees, change fees, cancellation fees, and any other charges incurred, through it's travel partner, Largay Travel. We accept all major credit cards. Charges incur a 5% merchant fee for processing a credit card. If you do not wish to incur this fee, please contact us to discuss alternate payment methods.

Airfare and Air Ticketing: 

Pineapple7 LLC uses our travel partner's in-house air team (“the Largay Travel air team”) to quote and book airfare. For this service, we charge a $57 per person service fee for any domestic US airfare and a $77 per person service fee for international airfare. Clients are welcome to purchase their own air and provide us with the details.

  • Taxes/Surcharges: Our airfare prices include taxes and surcharges. 

  • E-tickets: We do not provide printed airline tickets. 

  • Schedules: Air schedules are subject to change anytime prior to departure. We are not responsible for these changes. If the Largay Travel air team books client flights, any changes due to airline schedules will be accommodated as best as possible. 

Travel Insurance: 

Travel incurs risk. We strongly encourage our clients to purchase travel insurance. Pineapple7 LLC works with several well-respected travel insurance providers and we will provide you with a quote for travel insurance at time of deposit. We strongly recommend trip cancellation and medical insurance, but some policies do not protect against cancellation due to pandemics or supplier defaults, so the client must read the policy. We recommend “cancel for any reason” coverage, which costs more and may not be available to all clients. Any and all questions must be directed to the insurance provider. If you are not willing to purchase travel insurance, we require that you sign a waiver acknowledging you have been informed of your options regarding travel insurance and are declining a policy.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: You are advised that you need to take the appropriate protection/insurance within a certain number of days from the deposit being paid in order to avoid waiving coverage for  pre-existing medical conditions. The timeframe is imposed by the travel insurance company and is typically 7 to 21 days from the date of deposit.

  • Travel Protection/Insurance is offered and strongly recommended for everyone.  If I do not elect to accept travel insurance/trip protection, you will be required to complete a Travel Insurance Declined Agreement. I agree that I am responsible for all charges, regardless of the reason.

  • In this era of economic and political uncertainty, Pineapple7 LLC encourages its clients to protect their travel funds by using their credit cards and purchasing travel protection/insurance.

TSA Government Issued ID Card and Real ID 

I acknowledge that beginning October 1, 2021, every air traveler 18 years of age and older must present a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States https://www.tsa.gov/real-id . Review the full list of acceptable documentation here. If you are not sure if your ID complies with REAL ID, check with your state department of motor vehicles.  I acknowledge that my failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing me to miss my flight.

Travel Documents Notice:

Travel documents, including passports, visas, and health/vaccination certificates required are your responsibility – Valid Passports are absolutely required for all international destinations and the expiration date should be at least 6 months following the return date of your trip.  Some countries require that your passport have 4 to 6 blank visa/stamp pages. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met. All travelers must present proper photo identification such as a passport, Real ID, or other government-issued document. Please visit TSA Screening Identification for more information. It is the traveler’s responsibility to understand what documents are acceptable for travelling. It the responsibility of the client to ensure their passport meets the requirements for entry into a foreign country. Pineapple7 LLC is not responsible for fees incurred as a result of being detained or denied entry. Some countries require US citizens to apply for visas in advance of travel. We highly recommend not purchasing airfare until the visa has been secured, and we are not responsible for any airline tickets or fees incurred as a result of a visa not being approved. Passengers are responsible to ensure that they have all the proper documents for entry. 

Additionally, a visa and vaccinations may be required. Please note that even when a visa is issued, a traveler may be denied entry since each country’s local immigration officials make the final entry decision. Several factors including a past criminal record may contribute to the decision of the local immigration official(s). Should a visa not be issued, Pineapple7 LLC is not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. 

To ensure that all traveler information is correct, we require that our clients provide us with a copy of the travelers’ passports prior to booking any international airfare. We use passports to book airfare – where names must be spelled as they are on the identification – and to secure cruises, hotels, car rentals, and tours, as many companies require full names for all travelers. We also may need to input the passport issue date or expiration dates. If you insist that you know how your name is spelled on the identification, and refuse to give us a copy of the passport, we will not book your itinerary until we have it. Pineapple7 LLC is not responsible for fees incurred as a result of names being misspelled or price changes while waiting for passport information. It is the traveler’s responsibility to understand what documents are acceptable for international travel. This includes but is not limited to passports, visas, and drivers licenses.

If traveling to or through Canada, travelers with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or other conviction record should always check whether current rules that exclude admission, and potential waivers. Pineapple7 LLC feels it is an invasion of privacy to make such an inquiry. The final decision of entry rests with the immigration or border services officer.  For more information: Click Here to Review Canadian Government Help Center Information.

Travel Health and Safety: 

It is the client’s responsibility to understand the health and safety aspect of travelling. Please consult with your health care provider, health insurance company, and/or doctors if you have questions regarding your health or medical ability to travel. Pineapple7 LLC, Largay Travel, or any staff, have no special knowledge of health hazards such as the risk of contracting Covid-19 or any other virus, either during the client’s travel or at the client’s destination. For the latest travel health information, the client should review the US State Department’s website at and the CDC’s information. We have no responsibility for Covid-19-related, requirements that travel suppliers and governments may impose from time to time, such as health affidavit forms, health screenings prior to departure or upon arrival, face coverings or quarantines. For the latest Covid-19 government travel regulations, the client should review IATA’s website. For the latest travel supplier requirements, check the supplier’s homepage.

 

Any vaccines or other health requirements needed in order to travel must be obtained by the client at  their own cost. Pineapple7 LLC is not liable for any costs incurred due to lack of vaccines or poor health. 

Insecticide Notice:

All travelers are referred to always check the list of countries that require airlines to treat the passenger cabin with insecticides prior to the flight or while on the aircraft on the DOT’s website, as this list is updated from time to time: http://www.dot.gov/office-policy/aviation-policy/aircraft-disinsection- requirements.

Important US State Department and Centers for Disease Control Information 

I acknowledge Pineapple7 LLC and Largay Travel strongly recommend that all travelers review each destination country’s specific information at USA State Department Website http://travel.state.gov and USA Centers for Disease Control Website at www.cdc.gov both of which contain extremely important information on a regular basis for information regarding incidence of disease, terrorism, safety issues, crime, the need for travel documentation (such as passports, visas, proof of health/vaccination certificates), health hazards, and other restrictions regarding travel to my domestic and/or international destination(s), and re-entry into the United States. I understand non-U.S. passport holders must contact the embassies of their destination and transit countries to obtain entrance requirements. Required or advised inoculations I decide to obtain upon the advice of my personal physician, may need to be administered in a series of doses months ahead of my planned departure, and such time element should be taken into account by me, when making deposits and/or nonrefundable final payments. I agree to visit the Websites of the USA Centers for Disease Control, www.cdc.gov; and the International Society of Travel Medicine, www.istm.org. I understand that travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others.
