Our latest travel updates

Your peace of mind is our plan

The safety and security of our guests and staff is our top priority at all times. That’s why we operate our holidays in accordance with advice issued by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and closely monitor their updates in relation to our destinations.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are voluntarily suspending our tours and cruises from now until 30 June 2020. We will get in touch with all affected customers during the next ten days; there is no need for you to call us.

We are unveiling an enhanced Peace of Mind travel plan, giving everyone affected the right options and adequate time to reset their travel plans to rebook their holidays.


Your Cosmos holiday can be moved without incurring any cancellation fees for upcoming travel

26 March 2020

In response to elevated travel restrictions and government advisements, Cosmos has introduced an unprecedented new offer designed to give our travellers options and peace-of-mind when considering your travel plans - the Peace of Mind Travel Plan.

Cosmos is now allowing all currently booked travellers due to depart between 14 March and 30 June 2020 to move travel dates easily and without incurring cancellation fees, land or airline penalties*.

You are free to move your booking to any Globus Family of Brands (Globus, Cosmos or Avalon Waterways) holiday for any destination. If you are not ready to choose your new holiday, the full value paid to us will be provided via a Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future 2020, 2021 or 2022 departure, and is transferrable.

To help make moving your original holiday easy, the Peace of Mind Travel Plan for this period comes with an additional bonus credit. This bonus credit of up to £150 per person will be added to a Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future 2020, 2021 or 2022 holiday:

  • Bonus credit of £150 when redeemed for an Avalon Waterways cruise

  • Bonus credit of £75 when redeemed for a Globus tour

  • Bonus credit of £75 when redeemed for a Cosmos tour or £40 for an Escapes by Globus tour

We understand the value in giving our guests flexibility in light of the ever-changing travel landscape and look forward to hosting you on your trip when the time is right for you. 


*Peace of Mind offer valid for travel before 30 June 2020 until further notice. Refund in the form of a Letter of Credit, redeemable for travel departing by 31 December 2022. The new booking bonus, added to the Letter of Credit, is valid for original travel departures before 30 June 2020. Letters of Credit not redeemable for cash. Changes in airfare may apply, and the new booking is subject to any increase in holiday price. Offer may be withdrawn at any time and other restrictions may apply.
