Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver or tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 12-15 per cent of the bill and, in the bar, leave a dollar or so per drink.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

On your flight

All outbound flights depart and arrive on the same day. All return flights leave in the evening and land in the UK the next day. On-board meals will usually include lunch and a snack on outward flights, and dinner and breakfast on flights home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Helicopter flights

Sightseeing flights by helicopter are weight controlled and balanced. Please contact us if you wish to book a helicopter flight and your bodyweight exceeds 250lb. (In such cases, a seat may have to be left empty, and some companies may charge a premium.)

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

Hotel rooms

Standard hotel rooms in North America will contain one or two double- or queen-sized beds, and it is not possible to add extra beds to the room. Parties consisting of more than two travellers, but who have only booked one room, will be expected to make use of the two beds provided. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

St Leonards on Sea Couple
Really enjoyed this holiday. Fantastic scenery, guide was very knowledgeable, coach driver was terrific. Hotels were good -only downside was not having 2 nights in the same hotel in Banff - some sort of mix up with the bookings which should have been prevented I would have thought! As usual with this type of holiday, some parts were rather rushed, e.g. visiting a lake and given only very, very short times before returning to the coach. Of course I realise that when covering such great distances this sort of thing might be impossible to control. Overall I was very happy and am glad I chose this holiday.

We had a wonderful holiday . The mountains and scenery of the Canadian Rockies were spectacular. Also, the accommodation and places we were in were very good . But the changing of the Hotels so near the start of the holiday, was a bit unsettling.

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Bonnie (our courier) was excellent, very knowledgeable, very thoughtful and a nice person all round. Al, our driver was also very good and worked well with Bonnie, slowing for us and her when we were near things of interest.
Overall the holiday was well organised and went without a hitch. Thank you.
PS: Have you thought of using the Newquay/Gatwick Airports to help people like me who have a 5hr. road journey to London?

London Couple
Tour manager and driver were excellent, very knowledgable and interesting. The holiday was everything I hoped it would be. Views, wildlife were stunning and plenty of time to take in the magnificent scenery. The flights with Transat air were poor the flight staff were surly and the food (what there was of it was awful) a hot sandwich and later a small slice of pizza for a 9 and a half hour journey, we were served 2 small glasses of a soft drink and was offered water twice. This would not have been so bad if we had been forewarned and could have prepared.

MAUREEN

Southampton Couple
The first and last hotels were absolutely lovely as were the single night stops in Sun Peaks and Whistler. The 2 hotels which were a last minute alternative were not. The Crimson hotel in Jasper town was reasonable although the rooms were a long way from reception, with only 1 small lift at the opposite end of the hotel. The supposed upgrade giving us kitchen facilities was laughable as the only utensils of any kind were 4 cardboard plates and cups and plastic cutlery. The cabin which we had outside town wasted an hour getting backwards and forwards, had nice clean beds and bathroom but the room had not been cleaned and dusted for some time. There was nowhere to hang any clothes, not so much as a coat hanger or rail. Probably an ideal cabin for hiking or fishing. The tour manager was very nice and did her best but we felt that she had been left to pick up the pieces.

ANNE

Bagshot Couple
Overall good value for money and excellent Driver and Tour Manager. We had a late hotel change in Jasper and instead of staying two nights in the same Hotel we had to do one night in one Hotel and the second night in a different Hotel. Hence overall we had 4 one night stays instead of just 2. This we did not enjoy as there is a lot of travelling in Canada and it is nice to settle in Hotels for a couple of nights at a time. But other than that we thought all of the excursions were interesting and good value for money. We would certainly like to visit Canada again and would recommend Newmarket Travel to others.
