Tour Departure Location
All tours leave from Burlington, NC. The exact address will be sent to you once your tour is booked.
Deposit amounts vary for each tour, but are non-refundable. Cancellations prior to 25 days are refundable minus the deposit amount.
Transportation: Round trip via modern, Deluxe Motorcoach, equipped with restroom, air-conditioning, tinted windows, and video systems.
Accommodations: Your accommodations are highly rated and chosen on the basis of location, cleanliness and food, and are the best hotels available. Room assignments are always made by the hotel in an impartial manner. However, if there is a need, we will make a special request. Please advise when making a reservation if you have a special need.
Sightseeing: All sightseeing tours, guides, and admissions are covered in the tour price as outlined in the itinerary.
Meals: Meals are covered only if so stated in the itinerary.
Walking: On all tours, leisurely walking is a part of the trip. For tours where more than average walking may be required the itinerary should note that some additional periods of walking or climbing may be required. Please wear comfortable shoes for walking.
Luggage Handling: Luggage service, on all overnight trips, is limited to one large bag per person. You may also bring a small overnight bag, which would be your responsibility. Don’t overpack. It’s always wise to travel light.
Cell Phone Etiquette on the Motorcoach: Please be considerate of your fellow passengers while on the coach. Put your cell phone on vibrate, or silent, if possible. Turn the volume on your ringer down if you must leave it on. Lower your voice when taking a call while on the coach and keep conversations brief. Avoid personal topics when others can hear you. Your help in making the motorcoach experience as enjoyable as possible for everyone is greatly appreciated.
Child Pricing: Call the office for child pricing.
Radios: No radios may be played on the motorcoach without the use of headphones, in order not to disturb other passengers.
Smoking: Smoking on the motorcoach is not permitted, and is prohibited by federal law; however, frequent rest stops should alleviate any problems. The use of electronic cigarettes, vaping, chewing tobacco or dip is also prohibited on the motorcoach.
Rain Delays/Rain Outs: In the event of a rain delay, the group will wait a reasonable amount of time in hopes the event will take place. In the event of a rain out, if the event can be rescheduled in the itinerary, we will make every effort to do so. If it would significantly affect the duration of the tour, the motorcoach will have to return unless there is 100% agreement by the group to delay the return date of the tour (subject to motorcoach availability). Additional lodging expenses will be borne by tour participants. Whenever possible, in the event of a rain out and the coach returned home, we will reschedule the event at minimal cost with sufficient interest.
Other Weather Related Instances: All tours will operate as scheduled unless it is cancelled by our office. We will call to advise if a tour is not going. Weather situations, which are beyond our control, that develop while a tour is already underway, will be dealt with to ensure your safety and to include as much of the original tour as possible. In the event a weather delay forces the extension of a tour, additional lodging expense will be the responsibility of the passenger.
Coach Courtesy: Seats are on a first come, first serve basis. Be sure to arrive early to attain your preferred seats. These seats will be assigned to you for the duration of the tour. Persons traveling alone or in an odd numbered group (i.e. 3,5) will usually need to share a row with another passenger. Punctuality is extremely important when traveling in groups. Each person should remain seated, particularly during city driving and coach start-up.
No Shows: It is the individual’s responsibility to arrive at the departure location on time. BET cannot be held responsible if you do not arrive on time (no matter what the reason) and miss the coach. We are on a schedule and must depart on time. If you are unsure of where a departure point is located, make a dry run so you will be sure you know where to go the day of the trip. There will be NO REFUND for no shows on a trip; so be sure you allow enough time to get to the departure point and be sure you know how to get to that departure location.
Return Times: All return times listed are approximate.
Baggage & Carry-ons: While BET will make every effort to protect and secure your personal belongings which are stored in the baggage bays, we expressly deny responsibility for these items. No responsibility is accepted for loss or damage to baggage or any of the passengers’ belongings.
Passengers are limited to 70 pounds of total baggage per person. This includes all forms of cargo including, but not limited to: carry-ons, baggage, wheelchairs, motorized wheelchairs (including carts and scooters), air tanks, walkers, computers, radio/tvs, or any other items they wish to place inside or underneath the motorcoach. Items in excess of the passenger’s 70 pound allowance will be accepted on a space-available basis only. Generally, this will be determined on the morning of departure.
Individual items weighing over 70 pounds will obviously only be accepted on a space available basis. Additionally, these items will require people accompanying that passenger to be able to load and unload that item from the motorcoach as we cannot expect the driver to handle parcels in excess of 70 pounds. If the item may be disassembled such that no single piece exceeds the 70 pound limit, then it may be handled on a space available basis. The driver cannot be responsible for assembly/disassembly.
These rules are necessary to ensure all passengers may include their luggage on overnight trips. Motorcoach baggage space is limited, so there must be limitations on passenger cargo as well. BET is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged articles or luggage.
Local Accommodations: For our out-of-town customers who desire local accommodations, there are a variety of hotels in the Greensboro, Asheboro, and Burlington areas to consider.
Breakfast Stop: There will be a breakfast stop on all trips departing at 7:00 AM or earlier, unless noted in itinerary.
Lost & Found: Any items which are left on the coaches will be retained for a period of 30 days. After 30 days, if the item(s) have not been claimed, they will be donated to Goodwill.

BET reserves the right to decline, to accept, or retain any person as a member of any tour, or to cancel or alter any tour if circumstances require it.
