CHANGES IN RESERVATIONS
If changes occur in your motorcoach reservation such as departure time, return time, pick-up information or any other minor changes become necessary, please notify our office at least seven (7) days prior to your departure. If tickets, meals, lodging and/or other arrangements have been made on your behalf by Wolf’s Bus Lines, a longer notification requirement may apply.

Failure to record this information may result in cancellation fees being accessed. (Vendor deposits will be refunded according to the individual vendor cancellation policies.)
