CIE Tours “Cancel For Any Reason” Waiver Benefit
When you purchase the CIE Tours Travel Protection Plan at the time of the initial trip deposit, you also qualify for the CIE Tours “Cancel For Any Reason” Waiver Benefit. This benefit allows you to cancel your CIE Tours Travel Arrangements up to 3 days before your scheduled departure for any reason not covered by the Travel Protection Plan. Under this benefit, CIE Tours will refund the amount of your cancellation penalty in CIE Tours travel certificates, with the balance of the refund made in cash or by credit card. The travel certificates are non-refundable, valid for 26 months from date of issue (but no later than 26 months from the date your trip was canceled) and may not be redeemed for cash.
Any benefit payable under this “Cancel For Any Reason” Waiver will be reduced by the amount of any cancellation benefits paid or payable by the CIE Tours Travel Protection Plan or any other insurance plan providing Trip Cancellation benefits. The waiver does not cover the single room supplement charge that is applicable if one person cancels from a twin room, which then becomes a single room. CIE Tours requires written notice of cancellation during normal business hours. This benefit only applies to plan F429C and covers only those Travel Arrangements purchased from CIE Tours. For cancellations for covered reasons, see below.
CIE Tours “Cancel For Any Reason” Waiver Benefit is not available for groups of 15 or more.
If you have to cancel your Trip due to a covered Injury, Sickness or Death - your own or that of a Traveling Companion or Family Member - or for Other Covered Reasons, as defined, you will be reimbursed up to the Trip cost for the cancellation charges imposed on for Travel Arrangements provided by CIE Tours.

First, be assured that I will be recommending Irish Tourism to all my friends, business acquaintances, etc. You did a fabulous job of putting together a wonderful itinerary and the written material and maps you provided were invaluable.
Kinsale was a wonderful place to start. The Hotel was easy to find and perfectly located to walk around Kinsale. We particularly enjoyed the hotel pub's restaurant for a meal and drinks. And breakfast was fabulous!
As I said earlier, of course the Manor in Killarney was a huge hit and our favorite. I honestly did not want to leave. Our hosts were helpful at every turn. Breakfast there was wonderful as well. I am so glad we booked the bus tour of Ring of Kerry so that I could enjoy the scenery too!
We also loved the B&B in Galway. The owners were not there, but Kathleen and Anne were and we were treated like royalty! And the only day we had rain while we were in Ireland was our 2nd day in Galway, but it didn't stop us from Kylemore Abbey and Connemara National Park.Finally on to Dublin via Newgrange. Once again, a perfect selection of hotels - great breakfast and enjoyed dinner both nights in each of the restaurants. . We can't wait to return!
