To Obtain a Fare Quote OR To Book!

To obtain a van quote know where you are starting at and where you will be ending up! Glacier National Park does not help us to give you an accurate quote as our rates could be different depending where in the Park are you going. Make sure you add Montana as there is a Canadian Glacier National Park in British Columbia. Charter van prices can vary depending on your destination, travel date and departure times, season and whether you are touring or going 'point to point.

TO BOOK: Email us with your dates, flight or train details, number in party and destination in Glacier National Park for a quote or for reservations.

Terms/Conditions:
EXTRA COSTS:
If applicable, Calgary Airport Authority Exit/Parking/Pickup fee of $29.49 (vans), if the pickup is at the Calgary Airport. We can pickup from anywhere in Calgary. .Glacier National Park Admission Fees & Waterton National Park Admission Fees. We usually include the US Customs Fees in any fare quote.

TERMS/CONDITIONS:
No deposit is required but a credit card guarantee. The credit card charge is put thru the day before the service in Canada in Canadian Funds. In the unlikely event you must cancel a 72 hour advance cancellation notice must be received by us or you will be billed for the service. If arriving in Calgary by air we wait for late flights, at no additional wait-time fee, and will travel anytime, subject to road/weather/wind conditions as well as border open times. If your flight gets cancelled or you miss-connect make sure we know this prior to your original arrival time or you will be billed for the service. Hopefully you can advise us of your new arrival time, flight, airline and date.

CANCELLATION / CANCELLATION INSURANCE:
In the unlikely event you must cancel a 72 hour advance cancellation notice must be received by us or you will be billed for the service. Our drivers are assigned their trips and the equipment has been reserved for you. Cancellation insurance is available from your travel agent or thru the following link when you book. "Click-Here" for cancellation insurance. Please read the "terms/conditions of the insurance policy!

RESERVE THE RIGHT:

REFUSAL AT THE BORDER:

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.
