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.

* Goods and Service Tax (GST) applies for ALL transborder services! **Van Charter rate is based on ONE person/group paying for the complete charter (a five passenger van). ***Share-Ride rates are per person based on two or more groups booking with at least four (4) paying passengers going to the same location. If there is more passenger we usually add larger equipment. A higher price may apply if there are less than the four paying passengers or going to different locations (the highest destination ride-share rate applies i.e one party going to East Glacier, the other to Kalispell, the Kalispell ride-share rate may apply for everyone which is still cheaper than the regular rate.) If a party with "share-ride" cancels then the regular charter rate would apply unless another party can be found!
Possible Extra Charges/Terms/Conditions:
US Customs Van Clearance Fee is included. If applicable, Calgary Airport Authority Exit/Parking/Pickup fee of $29.49, if the pickup is at the Calgary Airport, We can pickup anywhere in Calgary.Glacier National Park Admission Fees & Waterton National Park Admission Fees.
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 miss-connect we need to 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.
RESERVE THE RIGHT:
Airport Shuttle Express reserves the right, that is the driver, to open and check all luggage, including carry-ons! We reserve the right to ask for, and the driver keeps to the border, all documentation i.e. passports or other travel documents.
SHARE A RIDE:
Some clients ask if they could share a ride. If the other party says yes, then a new lower rate is given. However if one party cancels then the above rates would apply. Shared ride dates are on the following link: http://airportshuttleexpress.com/waterton.htm#share
REFUSAL AT THE BORDER:
In the unlikely event you are refused admission to the United States OR Canada Airport Shuttle Express will drive you back to the first border town, not the starting point, as the driver may have other commitments. Usually it if very difficult to get out of these town on public transit! There would be no refunds on the amount paid for the trip.
United States / Canadian Bound Clients
Your passport/border/travel documents for the border crossing has to be faxed to us three days prior to the service so we can forward the information on our manifest to US Customs/Immigration or Canadian Customs. This includes information on your full name, birth date, nationality, passport number, date passport was Issued and date the passport expires.
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. Should you wish to "tour" the driver's overnight hotel, either pre or post, and meal allowance plus extra wages will apply. In most touring cases we do not charge you an additional day rental for the van returning ("deadheading") to Calgary.
National Holiday Surcharge
Dates on Canadian National Holidays may result in a surcharge.
Advance Hotel Reservations
If USA bound please make your Glacier Park, Kalispell and/or Whitefish hotel reservations prior to leaving Canada. With our driver's time restraints we can not spend time driving around trying to find hotel accommodation in these popular summer/winter areas where most properties are "sold out", especial during Canadian/USA Holidays. This also applies in Calgary during July's " Stampede!"*

East Glacier station closes 05 Oct 2013 and reopens on 01 May 2014. There is also some "flag" stops. Please check with Amtrak for details.

"NO" is usually the answer for one-way car rentals if travelling between Alberta and Montana OR Montana and Alberta. With advance reservations you can usually rent a car in Canada, take it into the United States and return it to Canada. The same applies when renting in the United States. You can rent a car in the United States, bring it into Canada and return it to the United States. However, the word is usually "NO" when you wish a one way rental! If you are a Canadian - Please check with the car rental company about taking USA Cars into Canada from Montana. In most cases the car company says "No"!
