The Base Fee ($129) applies to all bookings and is comprised of an administrative fee as well as the basic travel charge, which covers up to 160 km of round-trip travel from High River. If travel exceeds 160 km (round-trip) then a mileage surcharge will apply. The mileage surcharge does not apply to schools within Calgary.
When traveling to a location that is greater than 80 km from High River, a mileage surcharge is added. As stated above, the Base Fee covers up to 160 km of round-trip travel and so the mileage surcharge only applies to the portion of the round-trip travel that exceeds this amount. We use Google Maps to determine the round-trip distance from High River to the destination. This information is then entered into the following formula to determine the mileage surcharge.
Mileage Surcharge = (round-trip distance - 160 km) x $0.56/km
Accommodation and Meals
When traveling to a location that is greater than 160 km from High River, the journey is no longer considered a "day trip" and so an additional charge in the amount of $137/day will be added to cover the cost associated with Accommodation and Meals.
If two or more sessions are booked for the same day, at the same school, and most importantly, in the same room, with no tear down and set-up required in between sessions, a 10% Discount will be provided. Please note that this discount does not apply to the mileage surcharge or the fee associated with accommodation and meals, but it does apply to the base fee and the "per student" program cost, which appears on our Programs page.
