For summer travel dates the railway requires a minimum deposit of $200.00 for each group/bus tour to be paid at least 45 days in advance of travel date.
For fall travel dates the railway requires a minimum deposit of $500.00 for each group/bus tour to be paid 60 days in advance of travel date.
Note: Deposit requirements are minimum amounts and the railway reserves the right to change the deposit structure as deemed necessary. Failure to meet the deposit requirements will unfortunately result in the cancellation of the tour booking.
Payments of the deposit and any subsequent balance shall be made out to Algoma Central Railway Inc. and can be made by MasterCard or Visa and are payable in Canadian dollars. We also recommend our U.S. customers purchase Canadian dollars or Travellers Cheques at U.S. financial institutions prior to arrival.
When groups cancel their tour 30 days or more prior to their tour date, they will receive a full refund of their original tour deposit (except applicable service fees). When cancellations are received less than 30 days from their tour date, the group will forfeit any refund.
Any additions to the number of persons booked for each tour group will be accepted based on availability. A reduction in number of people booked for each tour group will be accepted without penalty, when the Railway receives notice at least seven days prior to their tour date.
When a reduction in numbers is received within six days or less from their tour date, the tour company will be responsible for payment of all the tickets originally booked (special circumstances may be reviewed during summer months). In order to accommodate the high demand for seats during the fall colour season this policy will be strictly enforced. We recommend contacting us by phone or email when making any changes in order to expedite your requests.
Note: When cancelling or making changes, please ensure that our representative provides you with their name.
Tour escorts may pick up tickets on the day prior to or before train departure the morning of the tour. This is subject to the tickets having been paid in full as per the contract. If possible, we recommend that tour escorts pick up their group's tickets the day before their tour. Our Passenger Depot during this season is open daily from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Eastern.
