Terms & Conditions

TO RESERVE your place on a Craig Travel tour, simply visit our secure booking page, or complete the enrollment form and send the required deposit (the amount is shown on each tour/cruise description). Craig Travel will accept credit card payments (VISA or MASTERCARD only) for deposit and/or final payments. Reservations can be made by telephone and a completed enrollment form/credit card authorization must be signed and sent to our office. As space is limited on each departure, please book early to avoid disappointment. Deposit is due at time of reservation.

FINAL PAYMENT is generally due at least 60-90 days prior to departure (in some cases earlier). Upon receipt of your enrollment, we will send an invoice showing final payment and due date. If you choose to make final payment by credit card, please be sure to advise us in ample time and ensure that you have adequate available credit on your credit card. Craig Travel reserves the right to pass credit card charges to third parties (i.e. airlines, cruise lines and tour operators).

FINAL DOCUMENTS will be sent to you approximately two to three weeks prior to departure. All legal documents (enrollment form, datasheet, insurance form/waiver, etc.) must be signed and returned to Craig Travel before final documents will be issued.

CANCELLATION CHARGES vary between journeys and can be very severe. Detailed information is available on request and will be sent upon confirmation of booking. Cancellations must be received in writing.

COMPREHENSIVE INSURANCE is highly recommended and available on an optional basis. Insurance information is available on our website, on request, and will also be provided upon receipt of your deposit. Travel insurance policies will have limitations and exclusions to coverage and are designed for permanent residents of Canada. The premium is non-refundable from the date of purchase. If you have your own coverage, please advise us at the time of booking.

Please Note: proof of medical insurance is mandatory for entry into some countries.

CT RATING While we have done our best to accurately assign ratings, Craig Travel and its agents cannot be held responsible for any mishaps, inability to participate in group activities or perceived loss of enjoyment by members who chose a journey not suited to their level of ability. An expanded description of CT Ratings is available online.

BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE is limited to one checked suitcase per person as well as one in-flight bag. Baggage must comply with applicable air carrier regulations.

DESTINATION REQUIREMENTS - Entry requirements vary by destination for Canadian Passport holders. Please discuss entry requirements and health and security advisories for your chosen destination(s) with your dedicated Tour or Cruise Specialist or visit https://travel.gc.ca/ for the most updated information.

SINGLE ROOMS are on request for all journeys at the supplements noted in the individual descriptions.

SHARING ACCOMMODATION Individuals travelling alone may request to share during the journeys but should be prepared to pay the single supplement. In most cases, we are able to find a suitable travelling companion. If a match is not  found by the final payment date or by the date the departure fills, then the single supplement will apply. Members who smoke and request to share must refrain from smoking in the room/cabin. On some cruises, a guarantee share program is available.

A JOURNEY LEADER will travel with most groups provided we have a minimum membership (usually 20 members). If numbers do not reach this minimum, groups may be locally hosted.

JOURNEY COSTS are listed in CANADIAN DOLLARS. Prices are based on a minimum number of members (usually 20) and are per person based on twin/double occupancy. Prices are subject to changes in taxes, fees, exchange rates, or other factors beyond our control. Group members benefit from excellent group rates – if numbers do not reach set minimums, supplements may apply.

NOT INCLUDED in prepaid costs: some meals (as indicated), passport expenses, alcohol and other beverages (unless included in meal cost), telephone calls, laundry and other items of a personal nature. On ocean cruises, shore excursions are not included except as noted. Supplements for single rooms or upgraded accommodation are as noted. The cost to arrange visas to enter foreign countries, if included, is for Canadian passport holders.
