Tour Description:

Just when you think you've had all the co-o-ld winter weather you can stand, hop on board our coach and let us take you away from it all for refreshing and wonderful Florida vacation of "Fun in the Sun"!!  You'll have the enjoyment of being with others, plus at the same time, get filled up with plenty of sunshine to make it through the rest of our Ohio winter!

Day One - Monday:  Get acquainted with your new Gad-About "Snowbird" friends and overnight in Mooresville, North Carolina.  You will already see the scenery "warming up"!

Day Two - Tuesday:  We finished our journey to the southeast peninsula of the United States know as Florida!  We'll check into our Orlando hotel, The Rosen Inn Pointe Orlando and include a nice dinner there while you get settled in for a 6-night stay!

The Rosen Inn Pointe Orlando, winner of AAA's 3-Diamond rating.  Offering a complimentary shuttle to local theme parks, the Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando on International Drive keeps guests well connected to local attractions.  The hotel has a variety of onsite dining options, including a buffet restaurant open for breakfast and dinner, a mini-market and deli, and a sports bar with pool tables, live music, and traditional American fare.  Additionally, the hotel offers a gift shop and a smoke-free property.  Guestrooms at the Rosen feature brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattresses, air-conditioning, cable TV, phones with free local calls, and free Wi-Fi.  Microwaves, refrigerators and coffee/tea makers are also provided, and complimentary coffee is available.  Guestrooms have private bathrooms with hair dryers ... AND we are including your breakfast here each morning!

Days Three - Seven - Wednesday - Sunday:  Ahhhh, these next five days are yours to plan ANY WAY YOU WISH!!  The hotel has a shuttle to several nearby theme parks, plus our coach will offer transportation one day to Walt Disney World and another day to the wonderful "Holy Land Experience".  The I-Ride Trolley is a public trolley service that has stops all over International Drive which is packed with great attractions, shops and dining - plus right across the street is Orlando's newest shopping and entertainment complex featuring 21 movie theaters and many specialty stores.  Orlando also has an excellent public bus system with many routes throughout Central Florida.  Be adventurous and perhaps even go to the beach for a day.  Just choose what sounds best to you and your travel mates and make this warm and sunny vacation exactly as you'd like it to be!

Days Eight & Nine - Monday & Tuesday:  We won't want to, but it will be time to make our journey back north, overnighting again in Mooresville, North Carolina, with refreshed spirits and happy hearts from a very welcome and relaxing vacation in "the Sunshine State"!

Terms and Conditions:

PAYMENT:
For overnight tours, the deposit is based on the cost of the tour as follows:
  • Overnight Tours Under $150 > $25 Deposit
  • Overnight Tours $150-$800 > $75 Deposit
  • Overnight Tours $801-$1,500 > $100 Deposit
  • Overnight Tours over $1,501 > $250 Deposit
The balance of an overnight tour is due 30 days prior to departure (unless otherwise notified). A confirmation will be sent to you after we receive your deposit. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover if you are making your reservation by phone, or you can send a check to our office (please call first to check availability). If you are booking online, payment must be made in full.

REFUNDS:
Up to 30 days prior to departure date, a full refund will be made. *Air and cruise tours, and some longer tours, may be different—be sure to ask for details when making your reservation. Tours including tickets also generally have earlier non-refundable dates. There are no refunds for cancellations made within 30 days prior to your departure date. However, we will do our best to recover as much as we can, but cannot guarantee anything. There will be no refund, for any reason, for a “no-show” on the day of the tour. A “Refund Protection Plan” is available at our office at a minimal cost. This insures you a full refund in case of a death or illness in the immediate family up to 24 hours before the tour departs. (It does require a doctor’s written note or copy of death notice.) On longer tours, we have a special insurance plan available if you are interested, and it will be sent to you with your confirmation. We encourage you to take advantage of these protection plans. The Refund Protection Plan does not apply to Day Trips, nor are there any refunds for Day Trips, with a few exceptions.

CANCELED TOURS:
Gad-About Tours Inc. reserves the right to cancel any tour that has not reached a minimum number of reservations. We reserve the right to change tour prices and itinerary. Tours are prepared up to a year in advance and may be impacted by circumstances that arise which are beyond our control. We reserve the right to cancel or refuse service to anyone, in our sole discretion. We always avoid changes and cancellations if at all possible, as we realize the inconvenience to you, our valued customer.

TRANSPORTATION:
All of our tours are by late-model, deluxe wide-body motorcoach. They are equipped with air-conditioning, reclining seats, public address system, VCR, and emergency restrooms. Our intent is for all overnight tours to be professionally escorted for your convenience. Upon occasion, in order to avoid canceling a trip with a low passenger count, our driver may serve both positions of driver and escort, and all are professionally trained to do so. Also, on air trips with low passenger counts, we may not be able to provide an escort from our company. However, we will provide airport transportation*, plus a guide from our connecting company will meet you upon arrival at your destination and be with you throughout the entire tour. (*If only a few are going on a given air tour, we will pay your airport parking fee in lieu of using the coach.)

LODGING:
Your lodging is included on all overnight tours. All hotels are AAA rated. We never use second-rate hotels, restaurants, or activities on any tour, to the best of our ability to make that determination. Payment of telephone calls, room service, and other incidentals at places of lodging are the responsibility of the customer.

LUGGAGE:
One suitcase per person is included in the price of your tour. You are also permitted a carry-on, which is your responsibility. Additional luggage may be transported at the cost of $5.00 per bag, per day. It is wise to travel light. Luggage tags are provided and required for hotel identification, and are sent with the final letter with the phone numbers of your hotels.

TAXES AND GRATUITIES:
All taxes and gratuities for included meals and activities are included, unless otherwise mentioned by the Escort. Driver and Escort gratuities are not included in the price of the tour, and are optional. However, the suggested gratuity as posted by the American Bus Assoc. for a job well done is $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the tour escort, and $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the driver. We request that you express this on an individual basis, and let the quality of service received be your guide.

SEATING:
On all overnight tours, we use a daily seat rotation. The first day of a trip, we allow you to choose your seat when you get on, and rotate from there. We feel this is fair to all involved. If the coach is not full, a less formal rotation may be used at escort’s discretion.

SMOKING:
We make regular stops for restrooms and for the convenience of smokers; however, we have a NO SMOKING policy aboard all coaches. This policy also applies to e-cigarettes.

RESPONSIBILITY:
Gad-About Tours, Inc. is bonded, insured, and registered with the ICC, number MC 198451. We act only as agents and are not responsible to any person for any loss of time or money due to a change or delay beyond our control. Nor are we responsible for non-performance by those we have contracted with. Any claims against Gad-About Tours Inc. must be made, in writing, within 30 days of the trip.
