Rain Check Policy (With NO Expiration Date)
Segway Personal Transporters are all-weather. Tours can operate in rain or shine, but at Chicago Segway Tour we run tours ONLY on a shiny, warm, sunny day and not like other companies that they run business even when the weather is heavily raining.
Your safety is our priority at Chicago Segway Tour (CST). When it’s raining heavily we will NOT jeopardize your safety for the sake of a tour, because:
- It's unsafe
- The tour will not be as enjoyable
- You will not be able to capture pictures as if it was nicer weather.
At Chicago Segway Tour’s discretion for the above obvious reasons when it’s raining we have created the “RAIN CHECK POLICY”.
Customers not wishing to take their scheduled tour because of weather concerns or conditions are allowed to reschedule ("Rain Check"). "Rain Checks" do not have an expiration date. This policy is designed to cater to out-of-towners who are unable to find a satisfactory date to reschedule to while still in Chicago on their current visit. They have the option of taking their tour at any future date when they will be in Chicago again, or they may transfer their tour to friends or family. This can be accomplished with a simple phone call.
Sometimes when the rain is light, we can still provide the service but the final decision is on your hands. We will give you the benefit of the doubt, and at the same time a Rain Check with No expiration date.
Gift Certificates Policy
Our Gift Certificates NEVER expire! Please note that even though some of our older gift certificates may have contained an expiration date, they are still valid.
If you have not used an old gift certificate, please feel free to contact us so that we may re-issue you a new gift certificate. Please do not hesitate. Call today. We would love to hear from you!
