Third Parties and Charter Operators

For group reservations, it is Morehead’s policy to communicate directly with an official representative of the group visiting.

If a third party arranges a group visit, they are financially responsible for the visit, and payment is required two weeks in advance of the visit. "Third party" is defined as a company, organization or individual (charter operator, travel agent, etc.) who is not an employee or official of the group.
