We appreciate that making travel plans is challenging at the moment, so we have introduced a number of terms, effective November 5th 2021, to be as flexible and fair as possible and make booking your Vagabond tour worry-free.
For latest updates regarding the Covid-19/Coronavirus please see our blog post here.
3.1 Cancellation of a client’s booking must be notified in writing to Vagabond. Cancellation charges are calculated on the day when written notification is received by Vagabond. The table below shows the number of days before departure dates that Vagabond receives written confirmation of cancellation, including any surcharges that will be imposed on the client as a corresponding cancellation charge. Please note that in addition to the tour fare cancellation charges set out below, the client may also incur cancellation fees in respect of any third party suppliers booked by the client in association with a Vagabond Tour.
We have enacted the following temporary changes to our cancellation policy in light of the Covid-19/Coronavirus situation:
|Notification Period||Normal Terms|
|30+ Days|| |
Deposit is non refundable (can be deferred to another tour).
Full refund (excl. deposit)
|30 Days or Less|| |
Deposit is non-refundable (cannot be deferred to another tour).
3.2 Once the tour has started, no refunds will be made under any circumstances for any unused sectors or sections.
3.3 If the reason for the client’s cancellation is covered by the client’s insurance policy, the client may be able to make a claim under that policy, this is entirely a matter between the client and their insurer.
3.4 If the client wishes to change to an alternative departure date, this must be done with a minimum of 30 days notice. Any charges or non-refundable deposits which have been paid to third party suppliers are payable by the client in these circumstances.
