The US Coachways Gold Standard—Your Customer Bill of Rights

At US Coachways, we work hard to ensure that our customers experience the gold standard in charter busing on every trip we book. Our "Customer Bill of Rights" ensures that we'll do more than just correct any issue—we'll go the extra mile to ensure your satisfaction:

  • Customer Right #1 — Your right to upfront pricing—When you book with US Coachways, all potential costs and fees will be fully disclosed at the time and point of sale. Those costs will be carefully documented in the terms and conditions of your contract. Prices may, however, be subject to change due to availability of coaches. If there's a price increase, we'll notify you immediately and give you the right to cancel your booking without a related fee. You may not, however, cancel, if the price increase is due to changes you made to your itinerary.
  • Customer Right #2 — Your right to cancellation protection—As a part of your booking, you will be offered the opportunity to secure "charter cancellation protection," which can potentially reduce the cost of a cancellation.
  • Customer Right #3 — Your right to a professional driver—The drivers employed by the charter bus vendors we use must comply with state and federal driving and safety skills guidelines. Your driver will also have a comprehensive knowledge of your itinerary, and will exercise the utmost professional courtesy at all times. If your driver does not meet all of these standards, we will conduct a thorough investigation (provided you notify us in a timely manner). If the investigation confirms your allegations, we will refund five percent (5%) of the total cost of your trip, up to a maximum of $500.
  • Customer Right #4 - Your rights in a "state of emergency" or weather-related cancellation or change of itinerary—If a venue on your itinerary is closed because of a state of emergency, preventing you from going there, any cancellation fees you are subject to will be capped at $500, provided the cancellation was beyond your control. Weather-related cancellation fees are applied as a discount on subsequent charter bus rentals from US Coachways.
  • Customer Right #5 — Your right to properly functioning amenities—Should any amenity on your charter bus malfunction, we will either fix the problem in a timely manner or provide a replacement bus, if possible. We will also refund up to 5% of the total cost of the charter for each day the amenity malfunctioned, up to a maximum of 20% of the total charter cost.
  • Customer Right #6 — Your right to be on-time—There's a 30-minute grace period for the pickup at the beginning of your trip. If we are more than 30 minutes late picking you up, you will be entitled to a refund of 5% of the total cost of the charter, as well as another 5% for any additional 30 minute period, up to a maximum of 20% of the total charter.
