$3200 (USD) per person, double occupancy, including international airfare (minimum 10 people – international airfare is estimated at $1200; unforeseen airfare increases could affect total trip cost). Every effort has been made to keep this trip as affordable as possible, especially for students. There will be no 4 or 5 Star hotels, but accommodations in the cities will meet acceptable standards of safety and cleanliness. In rural areas living conditions will be safe but more rustic.
INCLUDED: Round-trip transport from SVC’s Mount Vernon campus to SeaTac airport, round trip air fare US-China, domestic travel in China, admission fees and guides, accommodations and ground transportation, some meals, and medical evacuation insurance. Travelers age 60 and over must pay additional insurance surcharge.
NOT INCLUDED: Visa and passport application fees; Travel Cancellation and Protection Insur-ance; vaccinations; course tuition; some meals, personal items and souvenirs. Participants should expect to bring at least $200 cash for some meals, personal expenses and a few souve-nirs. Those wanting to purchase many souvenirs for gifts should plan for a larger personal budget. An ATM card from a major US bank is highly recommended.
CANCELLATIONS: Once you are accepted for the trip, the $300 deposit is not refundable. Other sums may be refunded only to the extent allowed by vendors (agents, air carriers, tour guides, etc.) and when not needed by the program to avoid cancellation of the entire trip. If the minimum of 10 travelers is not met, the trip will be canceled and all deposits and pay-ments will be refunded, excepted amounts forfeited due to vendor policies.
