Please note: If you are looking to travel on a custom or public battlefield tour, please review our tour terms below. If you are a travel agent, or organiser, please see our Agent Terms & Conditions here

Why should I read this?

Because it is important! Please read all of the information as

it sets out the conditions covering your travel arrangements.

The following information and conditions constitute your binding contract with Connection Custom Travel Inc., Connection Tours, The Battlefield Tours of Canada, and their affiliates. Please read all of the information below as it provides conditions relating to both the services of Connection Custom Travel Inc. and its suppliers:

 

Deposit payment
 An initial deposit of $500.00 per person

is required at the time of booking, of which $300.00 is non-refundable unless noted otherwise. Note: If you purchase travel insurance, your insurance premium needs to be paid to your travel agent in addition to, and at time of, the initial deposit.

 

Final Payment

Full and final payment for your group program with Connection Custom Travel Inc. is due 70 days prior to departure. Full Payment is due immediately for reservations made within 70 days prior to departure. If payment isn't made by the due date, Connection Custom Travel Inc. will assume that you have cancelled your group booking and cancellation charges may be applicable.

Cancellation Policy

Our cancellation policy is based on outside suppliers and third parties contracted for this group booking. All cancellations must be received in writing. Refund in full, less $300 per person, will be made up to 70 days prior to departure, unless otherwise noted. Cancellation within 70 days of departure is subject to the following charges:
 

| 70-31 days prior to departure - 50% of tour cost

| 30-0 days prior to departure - 100% of tour cost


Insurance
Medical insurance is mandatory on all of our escorted tours and details must be provided at time of booking. Please be aware that clients are subject to any cancellation fees assessed by our suppliers including hotels, airlines, and certain entrances used in the itinerary. We strongly recommend that your individual travellers purchase trip cancellation insurance which is available for coverage of expenses with cancellation due to illness or accident. In the event a participant must cancel their trip, trip cancellation insurance may be the only source of reimbursement.

Refunds

No refund is made for unused travel services or any portion hereof, nor is the value of the unused services exchangeable for alternative arrangements.

Pricing
Prices confirmed to you at time of booking include all taxes and surcharges. All pricing is in Canadian dollars. Once your booking is confirmed and deposit or full payment is made, the tour price for you will not change. However, as virtually all our products are purchased in foreign currency, we do reserve the right to change the brochure prices should exchange rates between the Canadian dollar and those currencies fluctuate greatly. You will be advised before booking if any pricing has changed.

 

Any and all additional air or government related taxes or surcharges imposed before you make your deposit, will also be added.
 

Payments
The preferred method of payment is by cheque. Credit cards will be accepted on the understanding that your authorization to use your credit card number for deposit or final payment indicates your compliance with these booking terms and conditions, whether or not you have actually signed the appropriate draft.

 

Airline and train tickets
To ensure the air or train tickets of your choice e.g. World Traveller Plus or seat-sale pricing, it will sometimes be necessary to pay for and issue the airline tickets more than 70 days prior to departure. Once you have agreed to this and the tickets are issued they are subject to the various airline's cancellation policies. This usually means they are 100% non-refundable or subject to change fees.

 

Cruises/Ferries
The cruise or ferry portions of all packages are subject to the terms and conditions of the cruise and ferry companies. These are available on request and will be given to every client at time of booking.

 

Airline or train tickets: see note above.


Special Requests
If you have special requests, e.g.

seating, meals, non-smoking rooms etc. please ensure you

advise us at time of booking. We will pass on all requests to

our suppliers but cannot guarantee they will be met.
 

Travel Documents 
Canadian and US citizens require a

valid passport for travel to Europe and most countries

require a passport to be valid for at least 6 months beyond

the length of your stay. Non Canadian or American citizens

should consult their consulate for the required documents.
 

Additional visas may be required in some countries. It is the

passengers responsibility to have the correct documentation

with them at all times.
 

Living Standards

practices, as well as conditions and standards with respect

to the provision of utilities, sanitary services and the grading

of accommodation, that differ with North American

range of hotels includes everything from 5-star to homely,

family run hotels.

advised. All rooms have private facilities which will be either

bath or WC or shower & WC. We will try to meet your request

but cannot guarantee your preference will be met.

limit your luggage to one suitcase plus a carry on. Please be

and carry-on restrictions.

one. If you are disabled in any way please ask our staff

about the suitability of any particular tour or hotel.
 

Changes

handling fee of $50.00 per file. For any flight changes or

flight cancellations that are requested, the airline's policy

on change fees or cancellation charges will apply.
 

Changes on coach tours - Depending on circumstances it may

sometimes be necessary for the Battlefield Tours, or its suppliers, to

substitute alternative hotels or motorcoaches or to change

the order and content of the itinerary. The Battlefield Tours reserves the

right without notice to withdraw any part or all of the tour.

Factors such as airline schedule changes, hotel over-
bookings, adverse or dangerous weather, etc. may

necessitate such changes in the itinerary. There also may

be other circumstances in which changes become

necessary or advisable. Transportation, hotel, and other

travel services are provided to tour members subject to all

the terms and conditions under which they are offered to

the public generally.
 

Responsibility

accommodation, tour and ferry passage, restaurant and

other services from various different suppliers who are not

affiliated with The Battlefield Tours in any way. All vouchers, coupons or

receipts issued by the Battlefield Tours are issued subject to all tariffs,

terms and conditions under which all transportation,

and that the Battlefield Tours or its staff will not be responsible for any

additional expenses or liability sustained for or incurred by

the tour participant as a result of any of the forgoing clauses.

Responsibility of the Traveler

There may be times when the Connection manager/host/representative has to make a decision in your best interest or for the best interest of the group. We ask that you agree to comply with the authority and decisions of the appointed manager and the laws of the country in which you are traveling. If you do not comply or if, in the tours manager’s opinion, you are not compatible with the general enjoyment and well-being of the other members on the trip, or the smooth operation of the journey itself; we reserve the right to refuse to let you continue participating in the group program. We do not tolerate the possession or carriage of illegal or restricted substances (drugs). You must agree that your fellow travellers and Connection Custom Travel Inc. staff have the right to travel/work in a safe environment. Any threats to their safety, well-being, or inappropriate behaviour by you, whether verbal or physical will be taken extremely seriously and may result in the immediate termination of your vacation. In either event, you will be responsible for your own repatriation and related costs, having no claims against us.

 

Should you have a complaint in respect to your travel program, you should inform the Connection Custom Travel Inc. director on site during the course of your journey. If the matter cannot be resolved despite Connection Custom’s on-site representative's best efforts to do so, your complaint should be made in writing to Connection Custom Travel Inc. as soon as it is reasonably possible. If you choose to write Connection Custom Travel Inc. via e-mail or online, please provide us with your home address so we might be able to send you a direct reply in writing.
