CANCELLATION WAIVER FEE:
Our Cancellation Waiver allows for a 100% Refund! NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
For passengers who are concerned with their inability to join a tour for which they have paid, we now offer a Cancellation Fee Waiver. If, for any reason, you wish to cancel a reservation prior to 12:00 Noon on the business day before the tour, you may do so by notifying our office to receive a full refund of all monies received by JTR Tours, except for the amount paid for the Cancellation Waiver Fee. This Cancellation Fee Waiver must be purchased at the time of booking. Final payment for one day and overnight tours is due thirty (30) days prior to the tour. NO REFUNDS will be given if this Cancellation waiver Fee is not purchased. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE TERMS. NOTE: You cannot cancel a trip by leaving a message on the answering machine. You must call between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday as the office is closed Saturday and Sunday. THIS CANCELLATION WAIVER IS NOT GOOD FOR THE DAY OF THE TRIP. The non-refundable fee for this service is:
Value of Tour Per-Person Fee
Up to $100 $8
$101 - $200 $16
$201 - $300 $24
$301 - $400 $32

This Cancellation Fee Waiver is NOT INSURANCE and does not cover losses from personal injuries, baggage loss or damage. This Waiver is not transferable or refundable. Should you wish to protect yourself beyond this service, travel insurance is available through CSA. Please ask for a brochure when booking.

JTR Tours reserves the right to terminate the tour of any person(s) who makes himself objectionable to other passengers or who disrupts or endangers the operation of the tour.
SEATING: On one-day tours, we will reserve the front seats for people with medical problems; all other seats will be on a first come, first serve basis. On overnight tours, your seat will be assigned by date of booking. No seat rotation. To be fair: no exceptions!

There is no set amount for gratuities, although we do suggest tipping your driver and escort on both one day and overnight tours. Such gratuity should be extended on an individual and voluntary basis.
Baggage handling is always provided. The handling charge for one suitcase is included in the price of the tour. A small overnight bag is also permitted, if carried by the passenger. Baggage tags are provided – we require all bags to be tagged. JTR Tours will not assume any liability for lost or damaged luggage.
