As we continue to take care of our clients whose travel plans were suddenly cancelled, we are also thinking of the future and what incredible journeys lay ahead. While we may not be ready to travel, we can dream and plan for our future world adventures. In many cases, cruise lines are offering excellent incentives for booking now. Bookings that you make now will allow you to cancel well into next year without penalty.
Financially we want to provide protection for your travel investment. We are doing our best to reduce deposits and to ensure they are refundable for as long as possible. While rules will vary by trip style, those rules will be defined when you make your deposit. In many cases, deposits will be fully refundable up until 95 to 60 days prior to departure, allowing you to cancel without penalty.
For us, top of mind is how we can provide for your health and safety when we once again begin travelling. To this end, we are working with our service providers around the world to provide a safe travel environment. Smaller group sizes, more social distancing, temperature checks, masks and hand cleaning will be features of journeys next year. Airlines are working to provide more personal space, plus healthy cabins, with thorough cleaning and enhanced air filtration on all flights. These are but some of the ways that will help provide a safer journey.
