Guided Vacations Temporary Change Policy For new bookings made on Guided Vacations until further notice, we have temporarily changed the terms of our change/cancellation policy to give you more time to make decisions about your future travel plans without worrying about increasing penalties.
Effective immediately and until further notice, we are temporarily offering a waiver for the change penalty until 30 days prior to departure should guests wish to change their dates or travel to a different destination. This applies to land bookings only and does not apply to European trips that include Oberammergau or group bookings. This penalty waiver allows you to change the destination and/or trip you are traveling on. If you choose a trip or departure that is more expensive than the original, you are responsible for the difference in price; if the trip or departure is less expensive than the original, a future travel credit will be issued for the difference. Normal penalties apply for full cancellation without re-booking or cancellations within 30 days of departure. Please note, airlines may impose different change policies, and if you declined travel insurance, you are responsible for any airline cancellation penalties. Temporary changes to standard terms and conditions apply to new Guided Vacation bookings until further notice and may be removed at any time. Other conditions apply.
