Please make your reservation and deposit as early as possible. This not only guarantees your space, it also helps us continue to offer the tour. Because hotels, theaters, coach companies, etc., are requiring non-refundable deposits months in advance, we must have deposits/payments by the deadlines applied to us in order to continue selling the tour package. If a published deadline has passed and you are interested in a trip, please call to inquire about availability.
Your deposit is due with your reservation. Remember – your space on a tour is confirmed ONLY when your deposit has been received.
Payments for motor coach tours
Full payment is due on ALL one day tours. All others are as follows:
- Tours priced less than $149: full payment.
- Tours priced $150 to $349: $100 deposit per person.
- Tours priced from $350 to $999: $200 deposit per person.
- Tours priced over $1000: $400 deposit per person
Note that cruises and fly tours have different deposit requirements, payment schedules and different cancellation policies. Be sure to read the tour flyer.
Your final payment for a motor coach tour is ALWAYS due 45 days prior to departure date, unless otherwise stated.
Your final payment for a cruise or fly tour is ALWAYS due 90 days prior to departure date, unless otherwise stated.
Please mark your calendar since your receipt of deposit may be the only reminder you receive.

We hope you don’t have to cancel a trip, but Carolina Tours understands there may be unforeseen conditions which arise that make it necessary to cancel your reservation. Reasons may range from family emergencies, or personal illness, to just a change of mind. Regardless of your reason for cancelling a tour, your cancellation results in a costly process of letters, long distance calls, e-mails, accounting adjustments, refund checks, etc., plus loss of money due to non-refundable tickets, lodging and empty coach seats.
You may be eligible for a full or partial refund if certain conditions are met. Please refer to our Policies and Procedures for a full explanation of cancellations and refunds.
Please remember this key point: Your cancellation does not become effective until Carolina Tours receives your WRITTEN notice of cancellation.
