Only available on some of our tours & packages that include flights from the U.S.
After you complete your reservation, but prior to paying the balance due, your package price can sometimes still change. In particular, until tickets are issued, airfare is subject to change due to increases in surcharges and/or government-imposed taxes and fees. If such an increase occurs, your package price will increase accordingly, and we will notify you immediately via email. (More about our prices.)
If you want to avoid price increases, you can pay your balance due sooner. On some packages that include flights, we also offer the option to pay a PriceLock Deposit, a larger deposit that allows us to issue tickets for your flights immediately and guarantee your package price. This doesn't increase your total cost, just how much you pay up-front.
Our PriceLock Deposit provides great peace of mind that the price you see when you reserve will be the price you'll pay, especially if you're booking a package that doesn't depart for several months. But it's not for everybody. Our deposits are non-refundable, and, as with most airfare purchases, tickets are non-refundable and unchangeable once issued. Modifications to your booking that affect your flights could incur penalties up to the full cost of your ticket. So if you might need to change your booking or won't be able to travel, we suggest you pay only our standard deposit instead. We also strongly recommend Travel Insurance to protect your travel investment.
