FAQ

Advanced Booking - How much time in advance can I book a tour?

You can book a tour up to one year in advance of the tour departure date on our website. We recommend you book your tours as early as possible so that you will be guaranteed your desired seats on the bus on your preferred travel dates.

Seat Availability - How do I know if seats are available on a tour?

Our website automatically checks seat availability for the tours operated by E-World Tours when you book online, and we have reserved seats on tours operated by other tour companies. In most cases if you can book a tour successfully online, seats are generally available. If you need to book flight tickets to join our tours, we would advise you to wait to receive tour confirmation from us before booking your flight.

Booking and Confirmation – What is the process of booking a tour online?

When you complete a tour booking on-line, your payment receipt will be sent to you via email within a few minutes. Then typically within 24 hours of completing your booking, a notification email will be sent to you to confirm your booking, or in rare cases to inform you the tour you booked is sold out. In the case the tour you booked is sold out, we will contact you and help you to find another tour that best suits your needs.

For more details, please refer to "Booking Procedure" section in the "User Agreement".

Airport Transfer Service – Do you provide airport transfer service if I travel to New York City by flight to join the tours?

Yes, we provide airport transfer services. For most tours with duration equal or longer than 5 days, the service is included in the tour package for free if your flight dates concur with the tour start and end dates. Otherwise you may pay a fee if airport transfer is required on different dates.

For most tours with duration equal or longer than 5 days, it is free for pickup at 3 major New York City airports (JFK, LGA, EWR) from 9AM to 11PM Eastern Time on the 1st day (start date) of the tour, as well as drop-off on the last day (end date) of the tour. Please refer to the detailed information on each tour.

A fee ($125 for the first 2 people, $10 extra for each additional person) will incur if pick up is needed outside of the free service window. For example you arrive on an earlier date than tour start date, or depart on a later date than tour end date. See more information on the tour detail page of the tour you plan to join.

Flight Information – Should I provide flight info if I don't need airport pickup or drop-off?

If you don't need an airport pickup, simply select "Departure Time and Location" during your booking. If you do need airport pickup, be sure to fill in the correct arrival flight information on the booking page. If you don't have arrival flight information yet when you are booking the tour, check "To be decided" box, and email us with your flight information later when it's available.

For airport drop-off on the last day of the tour, our tour guides will confirm your return flight information when you are with us on the tour, and send passengers to airport by groups. So you don't have to worry too much if you don't have accurate return flight information during your booking.

We encourage customers to join the optional attractions to enjoy the full experience of the tour destination. If you do not wish to participate in the optional attractions, you will generally to be asked to meet up with the rest of the group after they have completed the optional attractions and then continue on with the tour.

Parking - Is there parking available at departure locations?

It varies by departure locations. There is street parking or public parking available near most of the departure locations. Please research parking options near departure locations listed in the tour details for each tour beforehand.

Hotel Room Capacity - How many people are allowed per hotel room?

In most cases rooms in hotels can accommodate up to four guests per room (including infants). Double, triple, and quad rooms will have two double beds.

Extend Hotel Stay – Can I extend my hotel stay on the tour?

Unfortunately, hotel stays at each tour destination normally cannot be changed. We advise you to consider your tour options carefully as there are a wide range of options for different lengths of stay at each destination. For some cases you may be able to check in a day earlier at the hotel of the first day of the tour, or extend the hotel stay at the last destination of the tour, if the hotel room is available. You will need to discuss with our customer services after you book the tour online.

Online Credit Card Security - Is my credit card information safe?

All credit card transactions are processed through a highly secure and encrypted system operated by a leading global credit card processing company. E-World Tours DOES NOT STORE customers` credit card numbers in any of our systems.
