IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
Possibility of catching an illness exists almost everywhere. By taking one of our tours you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 or any other illness.
EASY PAYMENT PLANS
We are trying to make it as easy as possible for EVERYONE to be able to experience the fun of these tours. We have made options where no credit card is needed (as we also accept email transfers), and small payments can be accepted. You have two options for payments.
PLEASE NOTE: below payment options are for tour dates where pay in full is 10 or more months away. Looking at a tour closer than that? Message us and we can negotiate something that works for both sides. (general idea though is double the numbers below)
OPTION A: (the most popular one)
On the day you sign up you make a $150 down payment/deposit towards your seats on the tour. We do NOT mean $150 per seat. Just $150, whether 2 or 5 in your group. Need two rooms? Then it is $300. Need three rooms? $450.
Then 14 days later you make a payment of $75 PER PERSON. This means a family of four would pay $225 (as one is free).
Then 30 days after that you make a payment of $75 PER PERSON.
Then every 30 days afterwards you make a payment of $75 PER PERSON and continue to do so every 30 days until the pay in full date for your tour. If there is still a balance owing on your invoice it is due to be paid in full by that time.
So for example, you sign up your family of four on the first of July for $150. On the 14th of July you pay $225 (75x3). And on the 14th of each month you pay the same $225. (we can adjust the payment date to each month to something that works better for you. Just ask at time of booking)
These of course are minimums only. You can always pay more often or choose to pay the remaining balance in a lump sum by pay in full date.
On the day you sign up you make a $150 down payment/deposit towards your seats on the tour. We do NOT mean $150 per seat. Just $150, whether 2 or 5 in your group.
Then 14 days later you make a down payment/deposit of $800 per person. So for example, $2,400 if four of you. After this, you never have to make a payment again until the pay in full date for your tour (listed below).
Pay in full dates:
January 1 (for Feb tour)
February 1 (for March tour)
March 1 (for April tour)
June 1 (for July tour
July 1 (for August tour)
September 1 (for October tour)
November 1 (for December tour)
As these are bus tours there is limited seating and your payments are our security deposits so there are no refunds. If we grant refunds it can put the entire trip in jeopardy for everyone else. You can sometimes transfer your seats to another person (on a case by case basis), so you can sell your spots to someone else if able too. It is very wise to purchase third party trip cancellation insurance that covers your security deposits in case you have to cancel. Talk to your insurance broker about this. NOTE: we have been advised that CAA does not sell this so you must talk to an insurance broker.
Transportation is being provided by a third party bus company, Barrett Tours can not be responsible for any delays or deviations from the itinerary, missed time, or any other problems or unforeseen circumstances that arise from the bus line, weather, theme parks, or any other third parties or situations that are out of our control. For example, If "social distancing" laws require extra buses there could be a surcharge to cover that cost. Your participation in this tour constitutes your agreement to these terms.
Travelling outside of the country with us?
Please remember to bring valid identification for the border. Passports are always best practice but in the past many First Nationís Canadians have been able to use Status Cards. We suggest contacting the border directly to make sure you arrive with correct paperwork (we can help you find the number). It is your responsibility to ensure that you are able to cross into the United States and that laws have not changed regarding what identification you need. Barrett Tours accepts no responsibility and refunds will not be issued if you are turned away at the border for any reason.
Exchange rate policy in regards to USA tours.
This in regards to any new sign ups from October 7, 2015 onwards.
Our rates are in Canadian dollars but many of the products like theme park tickets and hotel room are paid in USA currency. So if the Canadian dollar were to fall below .75 cents against the American dollar at the time of you paying in full, we will have to adjust your rate accordingly.
In 2014 the Canadian dollar averaged about .90 cents American.
In 2013 the Canadian dollar averaged about .97 cents American.
At the time of writing this (October 2015) we are hovering around the .77 cent American range which is hopefully going to improve soon. (March 18, 2016 update: CDN dollar at .77 cents USD today). (September 12, 2016 update: CDN dollar at .77 cents USD today). (December 20, 2016 update: CDN dollar at .75 cents USD today). (September 24, 2017 update: CDN dollar at .81 cents USD today). (January 1, 2020 update: CDN dollar at .77 cents USD today).
This is an important step we must take to ensure the tours stay viable. As the profit margin is razor thin and we are selling tours for up to a year in advance, this helps ensure the tours can go ahead.

Your sign up should be processed within 72 hours. For future payments Please understand it can sometimes take over 2 weeks for your payment to be processed and an updated invoice to be emailed out.
If you have made multiple payments, they often will generate their own invoice as we process by day received. So maybe you made a payment on the first of month and the fifth of month. when your invoice arrives showing only the payment made on first, it means we have not made it to the payments made on the fifth in our record keeping.
