To reserve your trip, we require a deposit of $750 per person for public departures and $1,000 per person for private trips. Once a trip is under deposit, the tour price is guaranteed unless alternate booking conditions have been noted. DuVine reserves the right to decline a reservation to anyone whose health or behavior could impede the welfare or enjoyment of fellow guests. Travel credits cannot be used for deposit, the deposit must be paid then the travel credit will be applied towards the final payment.

The balance of your payment is due 90 days prior to the departure date. This balance will automatically be charged to your credit card on file unless other arrangements have been made. For reservations booked within 90 days of the tour’s departure, final payment is due at the time of booking. No travel credits can be applied to a reservation once final payment has been charged. A 5% fee will be added to your reservation if you choose to refund a payment and recharge on a different card.

Payments must be in U.S. dollars, and can be made by Check, Wire, Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover. If you would like to pay by ACH please contact your DuVine Tour Coordinator.

Once your deposit has been received, we will send you a confirmation invoice and Reservation Form. The Reservation Form must be completed, signed and returned within 10 days of deposit to finalize your trip. This form enables us to secure your bicycle, note dietary restrictions, purchase or decline insurance, and recognize special requests you may have. Travelers who fail to provide a signed Release of Liability prior to trip departure will not be allowed to join the trip and the cancellation policy will apply.

We are proud of the value our tour package offers. Our website displays per person prices in USD based on double occupancy and includes taxes. Prices are based on an annually set exchange rate. In the event of uncontrollable currency fluctuation, we reserve the right to adjust our rates accordingly. Price breakdowns will not be provided since there are a variety of proprietary factors that are involved. There is no price reduction offered for arriving late or departing early from a trip.
A single supplement will be charged to each traveler in a private room. The amount of this supplement varies depending on the tour and can be found on each individual tour page on our website. A single supplement is not meant to penalize solo travelers, but reflects the actual cost that is reduced for double occupancy reservations since they are sharing a room.

We encourage all travelers to purchase Travel Insurance to protect their financial investment. We include the option to purchase travel insurance on all invoices and require that travelers decline coverage in writing should they wish to not purchase it. Our experience shows that guests who purchase travel insurance including trip cancellation, interruption, delay, baggage and personal effects loss travel more assuredly.
DuVine and our suppliers strictly adhere to the following cancellation policy for public tour departures and will make no exceptions.
|Days prior to trip||91+||61-90||31-60||0-30|
|Fee per person||$200*||$1,000*||50% of trip price||100% of trip price|
* For reservations canceled with at least 61 days advance notice, we will apply your cancellation penalties to a future reservation – no questions asked! This credit will be valid for travel within one year of the date of cancellation.
Please note the following details regarding DuVine’s Cancellation Policy:
- Trip price includes anything purchased from DuVine directly as part of your tour, including upgrades and single supplements.
- Guests who fail to provide a signed Release of Liability prior to trip departure will not be allowed to join the trip and the cancellation policy will apply.
- DuVine reserves the right to cancel any trip at any time for any reason. On the rare occasions when DuVine must cancel a trip, all tour payments received to date will be refunded, which constitutes full settlement.
- DuVine is not responsible for any personal expenses incurred due to changes in itineraries or tour cancellations, such as prepaid hotel accommodations or airline tickets. We recommend confirming your trip with DuVine before making travel arrangements that might be non-refundable as well as purchasing travel insurance.
- Travel insurance is non-refundable but is strongly advised to protect you in the unfortunate event that you have to cancel or leave your trip.
- Private Tour packages may be subject to different terms and conditions as outlined in the final proposal.
We are happy to accommodate date changes following the policy below when there is space available on the tour you wish to change to and it does not mandate cancellation of the tour currently reserved. In the event of a date change, the traveler must pay any increase in tour price and will not be refunded if the new tour price is less than the original tour. Only one date change is only allowed per reservation.
