You will need to call in the cancellation as soon as possible. Refunds are issued in accordance with our cancellation policy. Requests for refunds must be made in writing.
Are airfare tickets included with your packages?
No. Airfare is separate from our NASCAR Travel Packages. It is highly recommended that you do not purchase airline tickets until the NASCAR Race Dates are confimed by the release of the Offiicial NASCAR Schedule even though we may offer select packages prior to the NASCAR Schedule release. We can not be held liable for airline tickets purchased before the Official NASCAR Schedule release.
Is travel insurance or travel protection available?
Sure! As a matter of fact, we highly recommend it. Insurance will prevent you and your family & friends from financial loss in the unforeseen event you would have to cancel your tour at the last minute or during the trip for covered reasons. You can access the travel insurance information from Travel Guard. There is a link at the bottom of our reservations form.
Can I purchase race packages for a gift?
We have many race fans and corporate clients who purchase race packages for incentives or gifts. We also have gift certificates available for purchase. Whatever the occasion, celebrate it at the races!
Where are the race tickets located?
Race ticket locations are listed on each package. Since we have been doing this for over 20 years, we renew or upgrade tickets every year and maintain great tickets at each track. We do not offer subpar tickets. We understand that you, our clients, want a top quality product and our ticket locations reflect that belief.
What type of hotels do you use?
We strive to keep our quality high and use only deluxe or first class hotels in most cases such as Marriotts, Hiltons, Sheratons and etc. Some of our packages offer mid level hotels due to the availability of hotels at that location, such as Bristol where hotels are tough to come by. But we never use economy hotels or hotels that may not meet our quality standards.
What time do we arrive at the track on race day?
The weekend race schedule generally dictates our departure times; however, for most Monster Energy Cup races we arrive 4 to 5 hours prior to start of the race. For the companion series race, we generally arrive 3 to 4 hours prior to the start of the race. This allows plenty of time for souvenir shopping, pit road visits and hospitality tents. The buses remain open until 30 minutes prior to the start of the race for your convenience. You may hang out at the bus if you choose and you can always bring your souvenirs and leave them securely on the bus during the race.
Can I purchase Options without purchasing a complete Race Package?
The answer is unfortunately no. We make options available only to our tour participants (Those that have purchased full Travel Packages). We make options available at very affordable prices but only for our customers that have purchased one of our full Travel Packages....that's one of the benefits of purchasing our tours and packages. We do not have inventory for non-tour package participants. If you wish to purchase one of our options, you have to purchase our entire package. Options are set up as just that: options that you can add on to your Travel Package but can not purchase separately.
What are race scanner rentals?
Don't just watch the excitement, hear it! You hear the judgment calls and the strategies being plotted by your favorite driver and crew chief as they happen. Listen to all the drivers, MRN & PRN radio behind the scenes and NASCAR officials. All uncensored. You’ve never experienced racing like this before!
We'll have your scanner programmed and available for you prior to the race. A limited number of scanners are available for each event. Be sure to reserve your scanner well in advance. Call us for Scanner rates or to reserve your scanner at 1-800-782-8222. We only rent scanners to our tour participants....ie you must purchase a complete travel package to order options such as scanners.
What is a V.I.P./Hospitality package?
Generally speaking, a hospitality package includes admission into a hospitality tent which has tables, chairs, close circuit TV monitors and private rest room facilities. Some of the features include a lunch or dinner, continental breakfast, beverages, entertainment, souvenir giveaways, sometimes a driver appearance and other miscellaneous items. Hospitality packages will vary from track to track. These services are rendered by Speedway personnel, not There And Back Again Adventures staff, therefore TABA claims no responsibility for the quality of service or product provided.
What time do we return after the race?
In most cases we ask that our clients return directly to the bus after the race is over. Don't worry, you will be able to see all the races. We just ask that you walk directly back to the bus after the race. Most tracks have preferred parking for the buses and they can exit quickly after the race and avoid traffic major traffic jams.
