Terms and Conditions

Flights are not included for The Masters Tours (apart from the Pebble Beach Tour, one flight is included – Charlotte to San Francisco).

Luggage is 1 piece up to 23 kg and carry on luggage up to 7 kg for your international flights. However, all US airlines charge between US $25 to US $35 (each way) for each piece of luggage up to 23 kg at their check-in counters. This is your responsibility to pay for. There is no charge for carry on luggage up to 7 kg.

The tour is priced on a twin share basis, unless indicated. Single rooms can be arranged upon request and will be charged accordingly. Should you wish to share a room, we will endeavour to pair you with someone appropriate. If this is not possible, you agree to pay the single room rate.

All prices are stated in New Zealand dollars per person and includes any applicable GST. Prices are based on supplier costs, exchange rates, taxes, levies, and surcharges at the time of publication. Prices are subject to change due to currency fluctuations, inflation and/or increase in supplier costs and regulatory charges at any time until full payment is received.

The final itinerary may change due to golf course availability.

Travel insurance is not included in this package. We strongly recommend that you take out and pay for an extensive travel policy, especially with the ‘user pays’ health system they operate in the US. With this policy please ensure you have cover for missed connections, lost luggage or delays and any last minute cancellations due to unforeseen family, health issues, etc. that prevent you from going on tour. If you require, let us know and we can organise a quote for your travel insurance.
