We encourage you to make your reservations as soon as you decide you want to go on a trip. Why? Because only a limited number of people can be accommodated on our motorcoaches and some trips fill up quickly. Your deposit reserves your spot. To make a reservation simply call our office. Deposits are due 10 days after making your reservation. A confirmation will be mailed after your deposit is received.
Local number 864-225-7783 or Toll free 800-972-1741. Mail deposits to: Ionosphere Tours – 307 N. Main St. – Anderson, SC 29621
When you make a reservation for a Tour, you will be offered, TRAVEL INSURED, insurance protection at that time. If you choose to purchase this insurance we will accept the payment and you will be sent a Certificate of Insurance. For this motorcoach tour coverage, pre-existing conditions will be waived if your payment is received within 7 days of making your initial trip deposit. Because of cancellation penalties incurred, especially on cruises we strongly recommend the purchase of Cancellation/Interruption Insurance. Without the purchase of insurance you will only receive a full refund if you cancel before the final payment date listed on each of the trips brochures. Insurance premiums are non-refundable.
For each day you travel with us you will receive $2.00 of I.T.’s Money (Ionosphere Tours Money). You may apply that amount to any Ionosphere Tour. The coupon is not transferable to any other person and is not redeemable for cash. When submitted, the I.T.’s money credit will be deducted from the final payment of the tour for which it is being used.
We will depart and return to the same locations on each of our tours. The following is a list of those places. In some cases if you are the only passenger at a location, we may ask you to join us at a nearby location. Anderson, SC – Walmart- Liberty Hwy; Lavonia, GA- Sleep Inn exit 173; Augusta, GA- Food Lion Belair Rd.; N. Augusta, SC – Walmart Hwy 25; Aiken, SC – Walmart Hwy 1.
We will also pick up along most major routes, such as I-20, I-85, I-95, and I-75 when the tour travels through a city on both its departure and return. Ask for details when you call to make your reservation!
A special pick-up for a group depends upon the number of passengers, distance involved, and length of the tour. All special pickups must be approved. Our departure locations are doing you and Ionosphere Tours a service by allowing us to use their establishments for arrivals and departures. Not all of these locations allow parking. If you must leave a vehicle parked while on tour, kindly check with someone at that pick-up point. Neither these locations nor Ionosphere Tours are responsible should damage occur to your vehicle.
Please be at your departure point and visible at least ten (10) minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.
Ionosphere Tours offers a Maximum of $70.00 towards an overnight stay prior to the tour departure to anyone subject to all of these conditions:
“The Nashville Gaylord Hotel is a gardener’s paradise. Also making the journey so wonderful and memorable is the fellowship from the other travelers and the Ionosphere staff.”
