Warther Tours Policies, Procedures, & Travel Protection
Warther Tours acts as an agent selecting appropriate hotel accommodations, attractions, and meal stops. Each tour is priced per person as Single (one occupant per room), Double (two occupants per room), or Triple (three occupants per room). The cost of overnight tours includes baggage handling for one piece of luggage per person, to weigh less than 50 pounds. A small carry on is also permitted but must fit in the overhead compartment or under your feet, not to obstruct the aisle of the coach. No baggage without a Warther Tours luggage tag will be stored under the coach without the express permission of the Warther Tours escort. Oxygen to be carried onboard the coach is subject to strict regulations and Warther Tours must be notified, as well as the coach driver and escort.
Warther Tours Responsibility
While we seldom need to change a published tour, Warther Tours reserves the right to do so should circumstances, such as, but not limited to, weather, dictate such change. Any changes due to an emergency of any kind incurring additional expense shall be borne by the passenger. The right is also reserved by Warther Tours to cancel any tour prior to departure if it is not up to capacity. In such a case, all payments received by Warther Tours will be refunded. Warther Tours also reserves the right to accept or decline any passenger as a member of any tour at any time. Warther Tours acts only as an agent for passengers and therefore accepts no responsibility, in whole or part, for delays, loss, damage, injury to property or person due to mechanical defects or other cause, or for additional expenses incurred through sickness, weather strikes, wars, quarantine, or other causes. Any person or group leader booking reservations for more than one passenger is required to inform the other person of Warther Tours booking and cancellation policies, as well as pertinent information concerning the tour. Warther Tours is not responsible for incorrect information given out by a second party. Warther Tours makes every effort to e-mail and/or mail through USPS a tour’s itinerary 3 – 4 weeks prior to departure, with a follow up call 1 – 2 days prior to departure. It is the customer’s responsibility to call for a departure time a week prior to tour departure in the event that no information has been received in writing from Warther Tours.
Deposits, Payments & Seat Assignments
Reservations are confirmed when Warther Tours receives your deposit or payment with trip sign-up form. The deposit/payment for 1-day tours is 100% of tour price. One day tours is fully refundable up to 30 days prior to departure, within 30 days the tour is transferrable. All other tours deposits vary. There are no assigned seats for tours; however, if you have a special need, you are required to notify Warther Tours at the time of sign-up to inform them of such need. Because many of our tours have limited seating, it is recommended that you book your tour as soon as possible.
