Changing or Customizing Your Trip
Changing your departure or package
Need to change your plans? In most cases, you can change your departure or package until your final payment due date (generally 120 days prior to departure), subject to the fees below.
After this, changes to your package or departure date may not be possible or will incur change fees.
Customizing your trip
Want to depart from a different city? Stay a few extra days? Add an extra stop? Take two tours, back-to-back? In most cases, it's no problem, and we're happy to oblige. You can request a change when you book. If it's possible, we'll let you know the price and availability.
Depending on the change, a per-person fee may apply (see below), included in your quote. This ensures the same careful research and planning that we put into building our packages. If your change requires additional costs or fees for airfare, extra hotel nights, extra transfers, etc., your quote will include those too.*
CHANGE FEES: Most Changes and Customizations are subject to fees. When you request a change, we will advise you of the applicable costs and fees or include them in your quote. The fee schedule below currently applies.
|CHANGE FEES (per person)|
|Name changes||$50||+||Any airline fees*|
|Airline seat upgrades (e.g. business class)||$0||+||Difference in airfare*|
|Changes to departure/return airports||$0||+||Any difference in airfare* plus any extra costs for hotels, transfers, etc.|
|Early departures/late returns||$100||+|
|Most other changes||$150||+|
|Changes to your package or departure by your final payment due date||$150||+||Any difference in price of your new package or departure*|
|Changes to your package or departure after your final payment due date||See cancellations|
Once we get back to you with a quote, it's only valid for a limited time. If you accept our quote, we'll add the amount to your balance due, which you can pay by your final payment due date. In some cases, an additional deposit may be required to confirm your change.
For this package, if you have added flights to your booking, we issue tickets for your flights shortly after you book. Any change affecting your flights should be requested with your booking, and any difference in airfare is due in order to confirm your booking. Any change affecting your flights after we issue tickets may incur change fees assessed by the airlines or require the purchase of new airfare.
