Exceptional Vacations’ trips are all inclusive. The price includes lodging, meals, supervision, activities, and transportation from Palm Beach, Broward or Dade Counties, Florida. When not included in the package price, Exceptional Vacations will arrange air, rail or car transportation for an additional cost. The trip prices do not include personal spending money or incidental expenditures. Any incidental expenditures incurred by a participant while on a trip are the responsibility of the participant and must be reimbursed to Exceptional Vacations within 30 days of invoice receipt.

Exceptional Vacations provides 1 chaperone for each group of 4 to 5 participants. We reserve the right to alter this ratio based on actual group size, trip location or specific circumstances.

Exceptional Vacations is committed to providing a safe environment for all our travelers. We feel that a uniform medication policy is necessary to ensure the well being of all our vacationers. It is very important for all travelers to follow this policy. Our staff will assist any travelers requiring help with medication administration, except in the case of injectables. If a customer requires an injectable medication, such as insulin, and the customer is not able to self-administer, a RN will need to be contracted out prior to the trip to perform the injections. Exceptional Vacations will pass this additional cost on to the customer. All medications need to be packaged prior to trip departure by the traveler’s family, pharmacist, or program. The following medication options are available to our travelers: 1) Have the traveler’s pharmacist pre-package medications in blister packs. Blister packs must include the traveler’s name, medication name, dosage, and time medication is taken. 2) Send medications in the original prescription bottle. Include details on dosage and time the medication is taken. (Extra Exceptional Vacations medication log sheets are available upon request.) 3) If traveler self-administers medication independently, they may pre-package medications in travel pillboxes. Pillboxes need to be clearly marked with the days and times the medication is to be taken. Always include an extra day of medications to allow for unexpected events such as spillage, transportation delays, etc. Liquids, drops, creams, and inhalants should be sent in their original container with clear instructions. A master list of all medications, dosages, and times or administration needs to be included with the traveler’s medication at time of trip departure. All medications must be checked in with Exceptional Vacations staff at time of trip departure. Medications should be placed in a large manila envelope or small bag labeled with the traveler’s name. Medications should not be packed in the traveler’s luggage. Special instructions regarding medications (i.e. blood glucose tests, blood pressure meters, meds that need to be refrigerated, etc.) need to be discussed with Exceptional Vacations prior to trip departure. Any traveler who arrives with medications not packed according to these specifications may not be allowed to go on the trip. Please contact our office at (561) 852-0910 with any questions regarding this medication policy
