Convenient Refund Policy

Customer Cancellations / Missed Tours


Our goal is to not make money off of your sudden, personal hardships that require changes in your schedule. In fact, we sympathasize with your current situation therefore it is our policy is to offer you a 85% refund on most of our tour types if you give us 1 hour notice prior to your tour departure time. Please call us at 1-415-513-5400 to secure a refund. Please do reschedule your tour with us if at all possible. As far as 100% refunds are concerned, we simply cannot offer those due to costs associated with the banks and the merchant services fees related to booking and refunding your funds back to you — we are sincerely sorry.


Change Tour Date/Time (1 Hour Prior)


If you wish to change the date or time of your tour (with at least 1 hour prior to the tour departure time) you can also do so via our automated Change Date/Time system. The system link to start the process can be found at the top of your email confirmation. The system will charge $15 per person change order fee. If you have already checked in for the tour with one of our staff members and you decide you need to separate from us for bathroom, coffee or whatever — the tour is still going to depart on-time without you. Sorry, no refunds for those that separate themselves from the tour group or fail to comply with our tour departure times.


Itinerary subject to change without notice


Given the nature of the transportation business where we rely on traffic condition, road closures, city marathons and weather, our tour itinerary is subject to change without notice and such changes can be made the morning of your tour. While these are rare instances, we will do our best to amend the itinerary so it makes for an enjoyable day. No refunds or partial refunds will be applied.


Cancellations by Us


On rare occasions, New York Shuttle Tours must cancel all or part of a tour, including in response to insufficient sales. If we cancel the entire tour, you will receive a full refund. If we cancel a portion of the tour due to weather or other reasons beyond our control, or if you, for any reason whatsoever (including getting lost from the group), do not participate in all or part of the tour, we will not be required to make any refunds. For other partial cancellations, you will receive a refund for the value of the canceled portion, with value to be determined by us in a fair and equitable manner.


No Refunds for Customers lost or displaced from group during tours


All of our tours make lots of tour stops and thus our tour guides will be giving instructions throughout the tour. Customers are not eligible for any kind of refund for missing the bus or separating from the group for any reason. Customers who miss any part of the tour for any reason must take a taxi to the next stop at their own expense or forfeit their right to complete the tour (with no refunds). Please help us out and listen to all of the instructions presented by your tour guide.


Personal Items left on the shuttle


We are not responsible for any personal items brought on the shuttle during your tour. Please make sure you make every attempt to watch over your items during and before your final stop and ferries.


Sales Pricing Policy


Although on rare occasions, New York Shuttle Tours reserves the right to offer sales and pricing discounts on an as needed basis. No price difference refunds will be granted to any prior reservations.


Tour Interruption


Although on rare occasions, New York Shuttle Tours assumes no responsibility for delays caused by weather, shuttle bus breakdowns, traffic conditions, accidents and/or other conditions beyond our control.


Shuttle Cleanliness / Damage


Unlike a maybe a movie theatre or a ballpark, we do expect our customers to clean up after themselves and dispose of any trash generated during the trip (private or daily public tour). We reserve the right to impose a fee for any damage done to the shuttle or any out of the ordinary cleaning made necessary by our passengers.

No employee or representative of New York Shuttle Tours shall change our booking terms and conditions policy verbally. Any verbal changes that are not in writing will simply not be honored. If you believe you were able to change this policy by our company, be sure to get it in writing for it to be honored.
