IMPORTANT INFORMATION & BOOKING CONDITIONS

By accepting this prize, the Prizewinner and Prizewinner’s guest agree to the following terms and conditions:

TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel Insurance is not included in the cost of the tour; however, it is available for purchase to cover trip cancellation or interruption, travel delay, accident, baggage, and more. Information regarding travel insurance will be included with tour documents.

HOTEL TRANSFERS
Because tour members frequently arrive at different times and sometimes on different days, transportation to the hotel that serves as our tour point of departure is not included unless otherwise stated. We will provide you with transfer options that will be included with your pre-departure documents.

ITINERARY VARIATIONS
Our tours are planned a year or more in advance. Right up to the day that a tour begins, Country Heritage Tours strives to improve each itinerary. If conditions beyond our control necessitate changes, we reserve the right to vary itineraries, change hotels, and to substitute the best alternatives available. During local or national holidays, certain features may be limited. In such instances and whenever possible, itinerary adjustments and substitutions are made to ensure a great experience.

BAGGAGE
On tours where baggage handling is included, you may bring one large suitcase, as well as a small carry-on bag that must fit under your seat. For extra luggage, an additional fee will be assessed to cover bellpersons’ tips and hotel charges. There is no charge for carry-on luggage for which you will be responsible. Country Heritage Tours cannot be responsible, assume liability, or accept claims for lost or damaged luggage due to breakage, theft, or fair wear and tear through hotel and carrier handling.

MOTORCOACH INFORMATION
Travel on all Country Heritage Tours vacations is by scenic motorcoach. All coaches are air-conditioned and are equipped with a restroom. For your convenience, travel days include rest stops and meal stops. A seat rotation policy is followed to allow every traveler an equal opportunity for viewing the sights.

ACCOMMODATIONS
On occasion, a double accommodation may consist of one stationary bed and one pull-out couch or rollaway bed. Country Heritage Tours does not offer triple accommodations.

NOT INCLUDED
The tour price does not include transportation to our starting city, personal items such as additional food or beverage orders, room service, valet or laundry service, meals not listed as “included,” phone access charges, or tipping for personal services not part of the tours included features.

SMOKING POLICY
Country Heritage Tours maintains a no smoking policy in all hotels and on the motorcoach.

GRATUITIES
Gratuities are included for all bellpersons and wait staff who serve you as part of the tour itinerary. Gratuities for step-on guides in individual cities can be offered at the time of service.

If you feel your Tour Manager(s) or driver helped you to enjoy your Country Heritage Tours experience, you may extend gratuity personally and individually at the conclusion of the tour.

ACTIVE TOURS
Our tours are active tours. If you enjoy walking, you will enjoy a Country Heritage Tours vacation. All tour participants should be in good health and comfortable with a moderate amount of walking. Country Heritage Tours cannot provide special individual assistance to tour participants with special needs for walking or other routine activities. Tour participants who require physical assistance should be accompanied by a helper who will be responsible for providing assistance. Country Heritage Tours is subject to the policies of suppliers of facilities, accommodations, and transportation carriers, none of which are owned, leased or operated by Country Heritage Tours.

TRAVELING SMART
Travel takes people into new and unusual situations. Part of the joy of travel is experiencing the diversity of our world. In many areas of the country and world, ways of life, points of view, personal values, and patterns of conduct are vastly different from what you may be used to.

FRIENDLY GROUPS
Because our guests share a common interest in quilting, you’ll immediately feel as if you are traveling with friends. We start every tour with a Welcome Meeting and schedule informal get-togethers that make our tours extra special and fun. You’ll find our tours are not only filled with special people, but special events like our very own Show & Tell. Whether you bring something from home, a purchase made on the tour, a favorite technique, or a work in progress, it’s a great opportunity for sharing and fun. Our objective is to make your vacation memorable and fun. To ensure the congeniality of all and the smooth, efficient operation of the tour, we reserve the right to refuse a reservation or withdraw from a tour any person who we determine disturbs the integrity of the tour.

DINING
You’ll appreciate our extra care in meal planning. We’ll provide some meals to enjoy with your group as well as opportunities to sample local fare on your own. Because food reflects culture, we often feature regional specialties. We regret that we are unable to provide special meals for those with dietary restrictions.

ACCOMMODATIONS
When traveling with Country Heritage Tours you’ll enjoy first class accommodations that reflect the countryside we are visiting. Some hotels are noted for their ambiance and others are celebrated landmarks. Wherever we stay, we are always committed to assuring the comfort of each and every guest.

SIGHTSEEING
One of the main reasons you visit a destination is to see the sights. Seeing a destination is fine but actually experiencing its culture is the ultimate joy. With Country Heritage Tours you’ll enjoy special events that make your vacation fun and memorable. Our journeys often include off-the-beaten-path places where authentic crafts wait to be discovered.

PRE-DEPARTURE TRAVEL INFORMATION
We’ll send you information in advance to help you plan a perfect vacation. We’ll let you know what kind of weather to expect, what clothes to pack, and how much to budget for meals and gratuities not included in the tour. We’ll also send you information about special events, a list of hotels to leave with family or friends, a detailed itinerary, and transfer information for our starting and ending hotels.

GETTING TO OUR STARTING POINT
Because our tours originate in different cities throughout the world, transportation to the originating city and starting hotel is not included in the tour price unless otherwise stated.

GUARANTEED SHARE PROGRAM
If you want to share a room to save money or for companionship, let us know at least 60 days before your tour departs and we’ll arrange a roommate for you. If we can’t find you a roommate, we guarantee you’ll travel in a single room at no additional cost.
