Should you need to cancel your trip, you must notify us in writing by letter or email. Notification of cancellation is based on the working week in Canada. Weekend days or statutory holidays cannot be calculated for cancellation fee avoidance. An acknowledgement of cancellation notice will be sent; should you not receive this advice, then cancellation has not been received by Discover Canada Tours and must be resent. We recommend the purchase of independent travel insurance. Please review our cancellation deadlines below.

Cancellation by Operator

A departure date for a scheduled coach tour offered and operated by Discover Canada Tours will become a guaranteed departure when the minimum number of customers, secured by a valid deposit, has been reached on that departure date. All guaranteed tours will depart as indicated on the applicable confirmation, subject to reasonable itinerary changes as described in these terms of health and safety concerns. This guarantee is not applicable in the case of unforeseeable circumstances that prevent us from running the tour. Up to date tour and itinerary information is available on the Discover Canada Tours website or by contacting us. Brochures and other printed materials displaying tour information and departure dates are subject to change and may not be relied upon for purposes of this guarantee.

If a tour offered and operated by Discover Canada Tours is cancelled by us before the date of departure for reasons other than force majeure, and the cancellation is not caused by your fault or negligence, you will have the choice of accepting:

  • a substitute tour of equivalent or similar superior value; or
  • a substitute tour of lesser value if no tour of equivalent or similar superior value is available, and a refund for the difference in price between the original tour and the substitute tour; or
  • a full refund for the cancelled tour.

In the event of a cancellation by the supplier of a travel service not operated but offered by Discover Canada Tours, and where Discover Canada Tours acts solely as an agent for the suppliers, all effort is made to provide you with a suitable alternative of the travel service. 

Discover Canada Tours is not responsible for any incidental expenses or consequential losses that you incur as a result of the cancelled travel service, including visas, vaccinations, non-refundable flights or rail, non-refundable car parking or other fees, loss of earnings, or loss of enjoyment. Where a significant element of a tour cannot be provided as described after departure, Discover Canada Tours will make suitable alternative arrangements where possible.
