Bluebird Senior Tours

Terms & Conditions for Our Bluebird Senior Tours

Here are some of the main considerations when you book your spot with DC Trails for a Bluebird Senior Tour. A complete copy of our policy manual is also available here for those that want an in-depth look.

Payment Policy

We require payment for trips within two weeks of making your reservation. DC Trails accepts cash, credit cards, money orders, or checks. Those that fail to make their payment within the designated time period may lose their reservation without notice. DC Trails can mail receipts for the payment we receive, as well as provide yours via email.

Refunds & Cancelations

When canceling your reservation, you’ll need to contact Quality Tour Transportation and speak with the agent handling your Bluebird Tour program. Please note that all cancelations are subject to a $5 fee for day trips and a $10 fee for overnight excursions. Additionally, a refund will only be provided if there is someone on the standby list available to take your space.

Schedule & Trip Information

For those interested in printing out a detailed schedule of their upcoming Bluebird Senior Tour, schedules can be found here. You can also email or call (703) 792-7433 (RIDE) to determine if there have been any schedule changes to your upcoming trip.

Guidelines for Tipping

For sightseeing guides, the cost of gratuity is included in the tour price. Meals are also included in the tour costs with the exception of alcoholic beverages. However, it’s important to note that you’re expected to tip the driver a suggested tip of $2-$3 per day. Tour escorts do not expect tips but appreciate them.

Trip Insurance

Trip insurance for cancellations is only offered on our overnight Bluebird Senior Tours and is not included in the overall price. It is a separate insurance you need to request via our Travel Guard Chartism and is available for everyone. The rates will vary depending on the cost of the tour you’ve reserved and your age. This insurance coverage includes trip cancellation coverage, trip interruption coverage, baggage up to $500, emergency accident/sickness medical expenses up to $2,500, and emergency evacuation repatriation of remains up to $25,000. 

To obtain trip insurance, you need to pay the cost upfront with your first deposit or payment on the trip. 

Seating Policy for One Day Trips

Passengers boarding in Manassas sit on the driver’s side of the bus and passengers boarding in Woodbridge sit on the door side of the bus.
