FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS: The fee for the tour is $2775 per person in double occupancy from Gunni- son (tour ends in Denver). This includes all meals from dinner on Day 1 to dinner on Day 9, accommodations as stated in the itinerary, ground transportation during the tour, and guide services provided by the tour leaders. It does not include airfare from your home to Gunnison and return from Denver, airport departure taxes, alcoholic beverages, special gratuities, phone calls, laundry, or items of a personal nature.
The single supplement for this tour is $435. You will be charged a single supplement if you desire single ac- commodations, or if you prefer to share but have no roommate and we cannot provide one for you.
Fuel Surcharges: In the uncertain, often volatile oil market of late, it is difficult – if not impossible – to predict fuel costs over the long term, and more specifically, at the time of operation of a tour or cruise departure. Tour prices are based upon the prevailing fuel rates at the time of itinerary publication. While VENT will do every- thing possible to maintain the original price of the cruise or tour, if fuel rates increase significantly, it may be necessary to implement a fuel surcharge. If a surcharge is necessary, every effort will be made to minimize the amount. In most cases, these additional fuel costs are passed to VENT by its vendors and suppliers who reserve the right, in their agreements to provide services for VENT, to raise their prices due to significant changes in fuel costs.
TOUR REGISTRATION: To register for this tour, please contact the VENT office. The deposit for this tour is $300 per person. If you prefer to pay your deposit by check, your tour space will be held for 10 days to allow time for the VENT office to receive your deposit and completed registration form. If you prefer to pay your de- posit using a credit card, your deposit must be made with MasterCard or Visa at the time of registration. The VENT registration form should then be completed, signed, and returned to the VENT office. Full payment of the tour fee is due 120 days prior to the tour departure date.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Cancellation Penalties and Refunds are based on the following schedule: If can- cellation is made 120 days or more before the tour departure date, the deposit less $150 per person is refundable. If cancellation is made between 120 and 90 days before departure date, the deposit is not refundable, but any payments covering the balance of the fee will be refunded. If cancellation is made fewer than 90 days before departure date, no refund is available. Cancellations received fewer than 90 days before departure date will re- sult in 100% cancellation penalty of the entire tour fee whether previously paid or not. This policy and fee schedule also applies to pre-trip and post-trip extensions, as well as any transfers from one tour to another. We strongly recommend the purchase of trip cancellation insurance for your protection.

TRIP CANCELLATION INSURANCE: Application forms for optional coverage for baggage, illness, and trip cancellation can be obtained through the VENT office. We strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance to protect yourself against losses due to accidents or illness. Check with your insurance agent regarding coverage you may presently have via other insurance policies that may cover illness during your trip. Waiver for pre-existing conditions is available; however, stipulations apply, usually requiring the purchase of the insurance soon after registering. Contact the VENT office prior to registration for details.
