Services of an HNA Travels Tour Director
This activity will be set up slightly differently than our usual activities.
You will sign up as usual, providing only your name and phone number. This information will be submitted to the tour company office and they will call you to make booking and payment arrangements. We recommend you pay with a credit card, if your card carried cancellation insurance so much the better!
A $250 non-refundable deposit is required by end-January with final payment coming out April 1. (The venues have to be paid 45 days in advance.)
The tour will accommodate a minimum of 35 people. If we cannot reach that number, Shirlie (our guide) will contact other clubs (Ajax?) to adequately fill the bus.
Cost remains at $599 double and$799 single.
You can purchase cancellation insurance from Sanderson Travel Insurance--call 1-877-226-8728 (Brian at extension 225) and tell them HNA Travels sent you. (Note that this will cost in the neighbourhood of $100 but does cover return of the deposit.)
