If you are booked, and IF there is a price increase, we honour the old price of your trip. If you have not booked, and there is a price increase, you will be billed for the new rate. Increase in taxes & custom fees are excluded.
If the one way "driving" trip is over five hours, a driver's meal allowance and overnight hotel expense may also apply as the driver can not make it back to their starting point due to their "duty day" driving hours. This extra cost is paid by the client. Most Glacier locations on the Eastern Slopes do not require any driver's overnight; the Western Slope may or may not depending on your destination.
You may wish to consider "touring" as your one-way trip has a number of attractions/heritage stops en route.

This also applies in Calgary during July's " Stampede!"*
We no longer provide "attraction stops" for the transfer to/from the United States and Canada due to the driver's duty-day hours.
