Because of cancellation penalties incurred, especially on cruises and air tours (both domestic and international), Perkiomen Tours strongly recommends the purchase of cancellation/interruption insurance. We do assist our travelers who might wish to purchase travel protection by providing insurance information. Of course, you are free to select other insurance sources if you choose to do so.

All conditions of coverage(s) are dependent upon the specific policy of your selected insurance company.

Proof of Citizenship:
Please note that airport travel travelers must show proof of identification at check-in. To prove identity, a traveler needs a valid Driver's License or Government picture I.D. card. A passport may be substituted for a Driver's License or Government picture I.D. card. Travelers will also be required to show their flight boarding pass.
Transportation Security Administration's Guidelines for Checking Luggage:
Customers are urged to leave their checked luggage unlocked, which will avoid the potential need for Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel to forcibly open bags that require further inspection. Plastic zip ties or cable ties may be used if desired.
Customers are asked to:
NOT pack food or beverages in checked bags
Pack footwear on top of other contents
Put personal belongings in clear plastic bags to reduce chances of TSA Screeners having to handle them
Spread out - NOT stack - books
Leave gifts unwrapped should screening require them to be opened
Put scissors, pocket knives and other sharp items in checked luggage
Put film in carry-on bag because screening equipment will damage undeveloped film
Avoid over packing your bag so that the screener will be able to easily reseal your bag if it is opened for inspection
