TOUR CANCELLATION POLICIES

Our “FAIR REFUND POLICY” secures you and your money! We know that unexpected emergencies may arise, and although we
hope this never happens, we try to be most accommodating with your cancellation refund.  The following are our cancellation policies for each tour type.


Day Trip Cancellations
(Full Payment due with reservation)

In 2021, all Day Trips are fully refundable up to two weeks prior to your Day Trip Departure.   Cancellations within two weeks will result in no refund due to your monies already paid to suppliers & vendors guaranteeing motorcoach head count for the Day Trip to operate. Thank you for your understanding.  Cancellations within two weeks will result in no refund due to your monies already paid to suppliers & vendors guaranteeing motorcoach head count for the

Day Trip to operate. Thank you for your understanding.
 

Motorcoach / Air Overnight Tours:
(final payment due 45 days prior to departure)
In 2021, all Overnight Motorcoach and Air Flight Tour prices INCLUDE
Group Travel Cancellation Insurance!
Your complete paid tour price is fully refundable

through the travel insurance cancellation policy/company for any, and only MEDICAL ILLNESSES (including Covid-19).

A cancellation must be made at least 24 hours prior to your Tour Departure date. A documented doctor medical   statement must be provided for cancellation coverage. Tour refunded monies will be provided through this insurance policy (you will receive insurance policy confirmation with your final payment invoice).  

This INCLUDED policy covers individual travelers (and married couples) signed up on any overnight motorcoach/air tour with us. Travelers may “opt-out” of our included Travel Insurance if they prefer to insure themselves through other personal insurance or prefer not to participate in our included group travel insurance coverage. DIRECTIONS Tours does not “sell” travel insurance individually and/or represent any travel insurance company. DIRECTIONS Tours does NOT receive any commissions on providing a group travel insurance coverage plan. DIRECTIONS Tours partners with Altair Travel and Cruises to prepare and offer this included insurance option for our travelers.
(Please Note: Your tour is non-refundable without insurance.)

Cruise / International Tours
(final payment due 90 days prior to departure):

DIRECTIONS Tours does NOT include cancellation insurance on Cruise and/ or International Tours offered.

Refunds for these cancellations are decided by the cruise line or international suppliers/tour operators. These will be outlined to you upon making a reservation. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing an individual travel cancellation insurance plan to secure your monies. If purchased up to 21 days of your initial deposit, most plans will provide a full refund for trip cancellations and medical emergencies.  We can help you with this process if needed.

DO YOU OFFER TRIP CANCELLATION INSURANCE FOR CRUISE AND INT'L TOURS?

A travel protection plan may be separately purchase from AON/TravelEx Insurance.   If purchased prior to 21 days of your initial deposit,  most plans will provide a full refund for trip cancellations and medical emergencies.  AON/TravelEx Insurance plans are reasonably priced and add peace-of-mind for any unforeseen reasons for cancellation.  Please call us for more information.
