Pricing + Payment Details
To reserve a trip, DuVine requires a $750 per person deposit (including a minimum $200 non-refundable cancellation fee) for our scheduled departures and a non-refundable $1,000 per person deposit for our Private tours. Travel Credits cannot be used towards payment of the deposit.
Once a deposit has been received, and your reservation has been confirmed and accepted by DuVine, we will send a final invoice. The outstanding balance of the trip is due 90 days prior to the departure date. For reservations made within 90 days of the tour’s departure, final payment is due at time of booking.
If final payment is not received 75 days prior to departure, a late fee of $150 will apply. At 60 days prior to departure, your reservation is subject to cancellation.
Payment must be in USD, and can be made by debit or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover), personal check, or wire. We do not accept cash. A $50 service fee will be added to the each reservation if you choose to refund a payment and recharge a different credit card.
Prices on DuVine’s website and invoices are displayed in USD per person, are based on double occupancy, and include taxes. Guests who wish to have their own room will be charged a Single Supplement. This supplement varies depending on the tour and can be found on each individual tour page on our website.
The “Price From” listed on the website for scheduled and private tours refers to a specific tour, date, hotel lineup, and group size. Actual tour prices may differ from the price listed.
There is no price adjustment offered for arriving late or departing early from a tour, nor for tour participants who do not bike (“non-riders”).
A given price quote is valid for 10 days. After 10 days, quotes are subject to repricing. All prices and quotes are subject to verification by DuVine staff.
Cancellations + Trip Changes
The cancellation policies outlined below take into consideration the costs DuVine incurs long before travelers ever depart. DuVine strictly adheres to the following cancellation policies. Trip price is defined as everything purchased from DuVine as part of your tour, including upgrades and Single Supplement.
To avoid cancellation and trip change costs, please consider adding Travel Protection to your booking. The plan includes coverage for the cost of your airfare—even if it was not booked by us. Learn more about Travel Protection Plans.
