Why should I read this?

Because it is important! Please read all of the information as it sets out the conditions covering your travel arrangements.


We strongly recommend that each traveler have health, accident, luggage and trip cancellation insurance. On the escorted tours it is a condition of travel that you have medical insurance and details must be provided at time of booking. DHTour cannot be held responsible for those not covered.


Prices confirmed to you at time of booking include all taxes and surcharges. All pricing is in Canadian dollars. Once your booking is confirmed and deposit or full payment is made, the tour price for you will not change. However, as virtually all the product in this brochure is purchased in British Pounds or Euros, we do reserve the right to change the brochure prices should exchange rates between the Canadian dollar and those currencies fluctuate greatly. You will be advised before booking if any pricing has changed.

Any and all additional air or government related taxes or surcharges imposed before you make your deposit, will also be added.


The preferred method of payment is by cheque. Credit cards will be accepted on the understanding that your authorisation to use your credit card number for deposit or final payment indicates your compliance with these booking terms and conditions, whether or not you have actually signed the appropriate draft. Verbal authorisation of your credit card confirms your booking.

Deposit Payment

An initial deposit of $500.00 per person is required at the time of booking, of which $200.00 is non refundable. Note: If you purchase travel insurance, your insurance premium needs to be paid to your travel agent or received by DHTour in addition to, and at time of, the initial deposit.

Final Payment

Is due 70 days prior to departure, unless otherwise noted. The final payment "due-date" will be shown on your deposit invoice. If the reservation is made within 70 days, full payment is due immediately.

Airline and Train Tickets

To ensure the air or train tickets of your choice e.g. World Traveller Plus or seatsale pricing, it will sometimes be necessary to pay for and issue the airline tickets more than 70 days prior to departure. Once you have agreed to this and the tickets are issued they are subject to the various airline's cancellation policies. This usually means they are 100% non-refundable or subject to change fees.
