- Tours of 5+ nights: A deposit of $500 CAD per person is required upon booking. Full payment must be received in our PEI office at least 30 days prior to your arrival.
For groups who prefer to travel together, but negotiate separate payments for their travel packages, individual invoices will be prepared to reflect the higher cost of individual packages, where subsequent modifications/additions/subtractions of any individual travelers’ services will not affect the other separate invoices.
MacQueen’s Island Tours is pleased to quote for multiple travelers sharing an itinerary, where fixed costs are divided equally amongst those travelers. Note that in exchange for the reduction in overall administrative fee group costs, the group must designate a single organizer to be responsible for correspondence and all payments for services. Multiple credit cards are not accepted for this option.
- Personal cheque or money order
- Visa or MasterCard processed in Canadian dollars. One credit card per invoice, where the credit cardholder is also the primary traveler participating in all services.
- $250 CAD forfeiture/person plus banking fees + HST – when written notification of cancellation is received 30 or more days prior to tour start
- 100% forfeiture of tour price + HST – when written notification of cancellation is received fewer than 30 days prior to tour start
COVID-19 NOTE, 10-Oct-20
Realistically, none knows how long the current public health emergency & travel restrictions will last or whether PEI will be open to visitors outside of Atlantic Canada by the summer of 2021.
In light of the uncertainty around travel restrictions for next summer, we’ve surveyed our accommodation partners and some are offering more favorable cancellation terms than others. Remember, by accepting your advance reservation they remove room availability for other potential visitors during a short season.
While the Atlantic travel bubble and Canadian international border restrictions remain in place, MacQueen’s has added a postponement option to our cancellation policy:
For any potential travelers seeking bookings for cycle tours taking place in 2021, MacQueen’s can accept, process and confirm your reservation now.
Cancellation: per published policy
Postponement: If Canadian or PEI border restrictions prevent travel in summer 2021 and you inform us at least 30 days in advance of travel, we are happy to transfer your tour deposit to summer 2022, less any applicable hotel cancellation penalties + a $50 administrative fee per invoice.
- A 5% processing fee applies to credit card refunds
