Tour Policies

Accessibility

We will seek, to the extent feasible, to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities so they are able to enjoy our tours. AC-Travel Services, Inc. intends to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Although we will notify and request accessible facilities, AC-Travel Services, Inc. is not a guarantor that all facilities and attractions will provide access that complies with ADA requirements. Please note, Canada and international destinations do not adhere to ADA requirements. Please provide us with advance notification of special needs as all sites and attractions may not be accessible. 
 

Children

Reduced prices are generally available for children age 11 and under rooming with two adults at the double room rate. Some tours do have age restrictions. 


Coach Seating

Seating on the coach is assigned two days before the tour departs. Seats are assigned from front to back in the order that we receive deposits. Anderson rotates seats on most multiple day tours. The tour director reserves the right to not rotate on low mileage days. The numbers of seats moved is at the tour director’s discretion. On shorter tours, travelers will not fully rotate around the coach. Special seating requests require a doctor’s excuse submitted in advance to the home office. 

 

Deposits and Payments 

  • One-day and express tours – Full payment is due at time of booking if making an online reservation. If booking by phone, tours with more than 30 days before departure allow for 10 days to make full payment.
  • Multi-day tours – Deposit is due within 10 days of booking and the balance is due 30 days prior to departure. If making a reservation online, at least the deposit must be paid at the time of booking. 
Full payment is required on all tours if the tour departs within 30 days.  When booking a tour through our online reservation service, it is necessary to make payment immediately. Some tours offer the option of a deposit. To avoid the possibility of your seat being cancelled, when booking, use your MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover card. 
 

Gratuities

Tipping hotel personnel or dining room staff is included when meals are part of your tour. If you wish to show your appreciation to your coach operator or tour director, gratuity may be rewarded on a voluntary and individual basis. This  practice is customary, but not obligatory. 

Immigration Regulations

When departing the U.S., proof of citizenship is mandatory and must be carried with you. This currently includes a current U.S. Passport. Adults over age 15 must have a Passport or Passport Card. A Passport Card is for land and limited cruise transfers. 

Anderson personnel can deny access to travel to passengers at the departure location when the required I.D. is not with the passenger. No refund will be available to the passenger if unable to travel due to improper immigration requirements. Naturalized U.S. citizens must carry a naturalization certificate and some other evidence of citizenship. Persons other than U.S. citizens or legal, permanent residents of the United States, require a Passport or a VISA. In addition to proof of citizenship, those admissible to Canada must not have a criminal record. This includes convictions for driving while intoxicated. Tours that enter a foreign country are marked with a passport throughout the Tour Catalog. Anderson is not responsible for decisions made by customs officials.

Visit www.travel.state.gov for the latest immigration/passport requirements for the country you are visiting. Regulations are subject to change by the government. Anderson Coach & Travel highly recommends passports for all cruises & fly tours. Cruises and International flight must have a current passport. We highly recommend a passport for all border/land crossings. 
 
BEGINNING JUNE 1, 2009, U.S. citizens traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea could be required to present a valid U.S. passport.
  • U.S. citizens and citizens of Canada, Mexico and Bermuda traveling by air between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda are required to present a valid passport to enter (or re-enter) the U.S.
  • All citizens of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda are now required to present a valid passport when entering the United States at any airport.
The regulations stated above are constantly changing. Anderson Coach & Travel endeavors to keep our clients current as legislation and rules change. This is a challenge in our ever changing world. Anderson Coach & Travel strongly encourages that all U.S. Citizens traveling by motorcoach (land) or cruise ship (sea) out of the U.S. obtain a Passport. All U.S. Citizens currently traveling by plane out of the U.S. should obtain a Passport.

Please note, Anderson Coach & Travel cannot be responsible for decisions by customs officials. In order to protect our customers, Anderson Coach & Travel can deny access to travel to passengers at departure locations, when the required identification is not with the passenger.  No refund will be available to any passenger unable to board the coach due to improper immigration documents. Therefore, we highly recommend a passport for all border crossings.
