What about travel insurance? The cost of insurance is based on the cost of the trip. When you make your reservation, we can provide you the cost. Insurance is for medical cancellations only (or accident, death in family, etc.) and a physician’s form must be completed and verified by Travel Insured before the claim is paid. You must be medically able to travel at time of booking and will be verified by a physician, otherwise it could be considered a pre-existing condition.
How does the Loyalty Card Program work? You earn 1 punch for each day trip. On Multi-day trips it will be punched for each day (3 day trip = 3 punches). Prime Time will not be responsible for lost, destroyed, or stolen cards. Prime Time will not reimburse any punches due to a lost, destroyed or stolen card. It is the responsibility of the card holder to bring the card to each trip. If you fail to bring the card, you will not be credited for the trip(s). This card has no cash value and is not redeemable for cash. In order to redeem you must book a trip with Prime Time Travel and mail the card to Prime Time at 146 South Country Road, Suite 7, Bellport, NY 11713. Only one card can be redeemed per trip and can not be combined with another card, promotion, or discount.
