All 2021 travel bookings automatically come with our Peace of Mind Travel Plan*—free of charge. This plan gives guests the ability to move their booking to another destination, vacation, brand or simply a different 2021 or 2022 departure date in our vast travel portfolio, no questions asked. Just let us know before final payment and we’ll waive all land or cruise penalties and transfer to the new vacation.
And for as long as the COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting travel**, all bookings for 2022 travel dates are also covered by our Peace of Mind Travel Plan, extending the ability to move travel dates through 2023.
* The Peace of Mind Travel Plan allows for any 2021 booking made on Avalon Waterways, Cosmos, Globus or Monograms to be changed to a different brand, destination or to another 2021 or 2022 departure date. Notice of change in travel plans must be given before final payment date; standard cancellation penalties will apply for full cancellation without rebooking or changes made after final payment date. The penalty waiver applies to the land or cruise portion of the booking only; airfares and vacations booked air-inclusive may be subject to penalties and/or change fees from the airline*. Applicable price and eligible promotions for the new tour or cruise will apply; if new trip is less expensive, a future travel credit will be issued for the difference in price. Cannot be applied to charters, custom tours, sole use tour or TBA space. No cash value. Credit is fully transferable. Offer reliant on space availability. Excludes Avalon special promotions, identified by full payment at time of booking. May be withdrawn at any time. Additional restrictions may apply; see Travel Terms & Conditions for details.
**For 2022 bookings, travel dates can be moved before final payment to any other brand, destination or departure, 2021, 2022 or 2023 dates for the duration in which the COVID-19 pandemic is determined to still be affecting travel if your country of residence’s federal health agency has issued a warning to avoid non-essential travel, due to COVID-19, for your destination. For all 2022 departures that include the Oberammergau Passion Play, this Peace of Mind Plan does not apply after June 30, 2021 when the deposits became non-refundable.
