     This activity will be set up slightly differently than our usual activities. 

This is the situation for signing on with the company Shirlie works with:

About 25 persons have signed they are interested in this trip. Expect to depart around 8 a.m. Lunch will be at an On Route somewhere along the way and dinner after check-in at the Elgin Hotel—most meals are self pay.  On day 3 lunch will be included. Shirlie advised a deposit is not needed. 

These points will be available IN WRITING for all those putting down the deposit for the trip.

1. She recommends people by credit card. Mechanism is that I will take names and phones numbers, submit them to her office and her office will call the people to get the CC details. People should check whether their cards carry cancellation insurance. 

2.  She requires a $250 deposit by end-January from the people with final payment coming out        April 1. The venues have to be paid 45 days in advance. 

3.  She will accommodate a minimum of 35 people, if we cannot reach that number she will              reach out to other clubs (Ajax I assume) to adequately fill the bus. 

4.  We do not need to be involved with any waiver. 

5.  Tips are not included but she recommends $3/day/driver and $5/day/tour director. She will         “pass the hat” so-to-speak. 

6.  Cost remains at $599 double occupancy per person and $799 single. 

7.  She will confirm which meals are included.


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.)
