Reservations and Payments
Reservations may be made online or by phoning (800) 788-4414. Deposits and/or final payment may be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or personal check. If paying by check, make checks payable to Collegiate Athletic Travel.
All reservations will be acknowledged on a first-come, first-served basis.
A deposit of $500 per person is due to Collegiate Athletic Travel in order to secure reservations on most travel packages. The balance of your payment will be due 75 days prior to the trip. The credit card used to make the reservation will be automatically charged 75 days out unless notified otherwise by the client. Reservations received within 75 days of the trip will require full payment at the time of booking, if space is still available.
Certain travel packages we offer for the NCAA Football Division Championships, Bowl Games, NCAA/NIT Men’s Basketball Tournaments, and other special events require full payment at the time of booking.
Occasionally we will offer certain travel packages that participants can sign up for by making a fully-refundable deposit in order to receive advance trip information. Once the details are released to those who have pre-registered, participants will have a specified timeframe to respond by either booking their trip with the deposit being applied to the tour package or electing to cancel and having the deposit refunded in full.
Cancellations, Refunds, and Changes
A fee of $50 per change will be accessed for any revision made to a reservation. If flight changes (including flight cancellations) are requested, revision fees or airline cancellations will apply.
Cancellations made 75 days or more prior to travel will result in a $150 per person cancellation fee. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made 75 or less prior to trip departure unless the participant’s airline and/or hotel space is resold. If space is resold, participant will receive a full refund, less a $150 cancellation fee plus any airline name change fees that result from the resale of participant’s airline seat. No refunds will be issued for unused ground transportation or for other services provided and not used by the participant.
College Bowl Games, Super Bowl, and NCAA Tournament Travel
Once a reservation has been made, it is non-refundable. Any name changes or changes to package arrangements made after registration will result in a $50 charge per change. No name changes will be accepted within one week prior to travel. No refunds will be issued for unused transportation or for other package inclusions not used by the participant.
Land-only packages may be purchased by those wishing to travel on their own. Packages include all items listed as “air package features,” exclusive of air transportation, airport/hotel transfers and airport baggage handling.
Special Children's Pricing
Children’s rates are limited to those 12 years of age or under sharing a room with at least one adult and using existing bedding configuration i.e. (if 2 adults and a child/children occupy a room, the adults will be charged the double price and the children the child’s price. If the room is occupied by 1 adult and a child/children, the adult will be charged the single price and the children the child’s price.)
Roll-away beds may only be added to King-bedded rooms and will incur extra charges. Requests for roll-away beds are subject to availability and differing fire and safety laws.
Tour Details and Costs
Dates, itineraries, features and trip prices are subject to change and/or revision and are based on current exchange rates, airfares and tariffs.
Disability and Special Needs
CAT makes every effort to contract with providers of lodging, transportation and entertainment which fully comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you have special travel or accommodation needs, you must notify CAT in writing as to the nature of any special accommodations or needs you may require. Neither CAT nor any of the providers of transportation, lodging or entertainment can ensure special accommodations without advance notice. Passengers requiring special assistance, including without limitation those who permanently or periodically use a wheelchair, must be accompanied by someone who is fit and able to assist them, and who will be completely responsible for providing all required assistance. The right is reserved to decline to accept or to retain any person as a member of this trip who, in the opinion of CAT, is unfit for travel or whose physical or mental condition may constitute a danger to themselves or to others on the trip.
Trip cancellation, baggage loss, health and accident insurance is available upon request to protect participants against unforeseen circumstances that may cause interruption or cancellation of trip as well as loss of property. Because Collegiate Athletic Travel is not responsible for losses due to trip cancellation by participant (see following) and/or loss of luggage, we strongly recommend the purchase of appropriate insurance coverage. Details can be found at www.travelguard.com.
