TRAVELER CONDUCT & SPECIAL NEEDS
Tours are fun, but the enjoyment of the tour is based on everyone being friendly and cooperative. Allied Tour reserves the right to accept or decline any passenger on any tour if Allied Tour determines a passenger would be detrimental to the tour. Once a tour departs, any passenger disruptive to the group may be required to leave the tour. Expenses to return home would be the responsibility of the passenger. No refunds will be issued for unused portions of the tour.
Please notify us of any special needs at the time of reservation. We will make all reasonable efforts to assist with your travel arrangements. However, it is strongly recommended that a traveling companion come along to help with any special needs of anyone with a disability. Allied tour directors have responsibilities for the entire group and cant provide one-on-one care. This includes boarding motorcoaches, airplanes, cruise ships, etc., traversing hotels, restaurants, attractions, other personal needs, etc. Contact Allied if you have any questions.
Single travelers are guaranteed one seat on the motorcoach and may be seated next to another traveler if the tour is full.
INSPIRATION & FAITH
Due to tour schedules, we are unable to make any special provisions for worship services. Many tour directors share a Thought for the Day, verses of inspiration, or a short prayer to start the day.
PROTECTING YOUR TRAVEL
Your trip investment is worth protecting to safeguard against unexpected events that can prevent you from traveling and being assessed significant cancellation fees. We have two options: the Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP) or the Travelex 360 Group Insurance Plan. You can choose one or the other. They are not required for travel, but optional
-CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN (CPP) - MOTORCOACH TOURS ONLY
Cancellation protection is not insurance but a simple plan to protect you from losing funds if you must cancel for a covered reason. If you cancel for a covered
reason, prior to departure, you will be reimbursed for the amount you paid for your trip. This covers cancellation only. No coverages apply after the tour starts.
-TRAVELEX 360 GROUP INSURANCE PLAN
The 360° Group Choice protection plan is insurance. Enjoy trip cancellation & interruption benefits, emergency medical coverage, along with 24/7 travel assistance &
The enrollment form & payment needs to be completed BEFORE or AT THE TIME of final payment. Customers are NOT allowed to enroll after the final payment has been made. For complete plan information, please contact Allied or your local travel advisor.
CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN (CPP) - MOTORCOACH TOURS ONLY
Tour payments can be protected from cancellation charges for a nominal fee when traveling on one of our motorcoach tours. The CPP must be purchased prior to or at final payment. For complete plan information, please contact Allied or your local travel advisor.
