Express Tours engagement
Our agency is committed to respecting and enforcing all measures and instructions issued by the Institut national de la santé publique du Québec, which are part of our COVID-19 response plan. The service providers used in our packages and/or excursions must also comply with the health measures. It is our responsibility to ensure that service providers are open at the time of the client’s travel, that travel is authorized from the region of departure and that access to the region of destination is authorized. The agency reserves the right to modify the packages in the event of the closure, the non-reopening of service providers included initially, or the closure of the regions by offering customers equivalent solutions.
BY COMPLETING MY EXPRESS TOURS BOOKING, I ACKNOWLEDGE that I, and all those affected by such booking, are aware that:
-COVID-19 is globally active, with associated health risks and restrictions that, without warning, could lead to significant disruptions, cancellations and changes to travel arrangements in the event of a disease outbreak, sudden regional closures, quarantine and containment orders, government notifications to travellers, and consequences that cannot be reasonably foreseen at this time;
-It is our responsibility to ensure that we are fit to travel at the time of departure (Symptom Self-Assessment Tool).
Unauthorized travel and mandatory isolation (government actions)
In case of closure of the regions (general confinement), if the hotel establishments were to close their doors, if an interregional travel was strictly forbidden, we undertake to reimburse you 90% of the cost of the package, 24 hours before your arrival at your destination.
In the event of mandatory isolation ordered by Public Health, if you are waiting for your COVID-19 test result, if you have received a positive COVID-19 test result, we will reimburse you 90% of the cost of the package, up to 7 days before your arrival at your destination. Below this deadline (6 days or less), the whole will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. In order for the refund to be made, written proof will be required (public health letter, letter from your employer, medical note, school correspondence, etc.).
Also, as you know, the vaccination passport has been effective since September 1. In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, make sure you have received your 2 doses of vaccine at the time of your stay, because if this is not the case and some suppliers prevent you from accessing their establishment, we will not could not compensate you.
In all cases of cancellation requests, regardless of the reason, we ask that you send everything in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
AS A CUSTOMER, I RELEASE EXPRESS TOURS FROM THE FOLLOWING RESPONSIBILITIES:
Any loss, theft, damage to property or bodily injury occurring during a day or overnight trip, mechanical breakdown of buses, delay due to bad weather, stopping or closing of the ski lifts and delay to customs.
Although Express Tours carefully chooses its suppliers, no one is immune to a problem while travelling. These include loss of luggage, accident, weather conditions, cancellation of transport, travel-acquired illness, state of emergency, pandemic, closure of areas for health reasons, Express Tours cannot be held responsible for events beyond its control or for force majeure and for damage related to them.
Damage may include loss of time, loss of enjoyment, inconvenience, frustration, additional expenses, loss of salary and quarantine.

In accordance with the laws of the Office de la protection du consommateur, Express Tours may increase the price of a trip already sold to a customer in the event of fuel overload by the carrier or a change in the exchange rate.

As soon as the price of the trip increases by at least 7% (before taxes), the customer can decide to cancel his trip and be reimbursed. Alternatively, they may accept another trip as an alternative, paying for excess charges or being reimbursed for excess charges. The increase in GST or QST sales taxes could result in an increase in the rates displayed on all mediums for stays since these include taxes.
