Travel Update (as of March 1, 2021)
In response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, subsequent travel restrictions, government advisements, and most importantly, to ensure the safety of each one of our guests, Globus is voluntarily and temporarily pausing operations for international departures through May 31, 2021. Operation of select domestic tours has resumed.
Our guest services team is in contact with guests affected by the suspension of the affected departures in order to adjust their plans for future travel.
FOR UPCOMING TRAVEL (Departures through May, 2021)
With the temporary suspension of operations, Globus is offering the option to move travel dates for suspended departures May 1-31, 2021 as follows:
- Affected guests can move their vacation to any other itinerary, destination, brand (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) or date in 2021 or 2022 without penalty and with an additional re-booking credit*. To expedite the process and ensure guests have adequate time to adjust travel plans without worry, we have automatically assigned this booking protection in the form of a Letter of Credit to all guests with upcoming departures.
- Guests can decline this offer and cancel outright if we are notified by March 24, 2021*. After that date, the Letter of Credit is the only option.
Also note that Holland America Lines has suspended operation on select Alaska, Eastern Canada/New England sailings through September. Globus guests on all related cruise/tours will be contacted with options.
And for added flexibility for future travel plans, we’re also offering a Peace of Mind Travel Plan, allowing movement of future 2021 and 2022 bookings to any other date, departure or brand up until your final payment date. Click here for details.
We understand this is a unique time in the world of travel, but are committed to ensuring our guests and their travel advisors manage through this period with the right options, adequate time, and high levels of attention and consideration. As we do our best to help each and every one of our guests, both with current and pending travel plans, we greatly appreciate your confidence and loyalty.
Of course, we continue to monitor this situation closely and carefully to determine if additional modifications and updates are needed, always with safety and guest well-being in mind.
