Updated April 19, 2022.
Times have been strange since COVID-19 burst onto the scene, and we recognize that it has been difficult to plan travel amidst so much uncertainty.
But we have many, many clients who want to travel, for whom it is a necessary act, a true pleasure, a way to connect with themselves and the world.
Worry not! Because of the challenging and unprecedented times in which we’re living, we have asked our partners to work with us to offer Worry Free Trips.
What is a “Worry free trip”? Simply put, it’s a new booking for one of our eligible trips that you may cancel up to 31 days before the trip start date and get 100% of your deposit back. A 30% deposit is required to book, and balance payment is due 31 days prior to the start date. This means you can book with peace of mind knowing that if world events do not improve you can change your mind.
Here is a list of the trips that are eligible (list is subject to change, please consult Terms & Conditions for up-to-date list):
Northern Italy Culinary Tour in Piedmont and Liguria
Authentic Experience in Piedmont
Cooking in the French Alps
Cooking in Gascony
Special Flexible Trips
If you don’t see the trip you want, don’t worry! We also have trips that are eligible for special flexible booking terms with cancelation up to 31 days prior to the trip start date with only a small cancelation fee of $200 per person:
For the rest of our trips, although the deposit is non-refundable we are committed to working with our travelers during these uncertain times to allow date changes or travel credits wherever possible. As always, please contact us with questions or to start planning your trip!
Please note that Worry Free booking is valid for new bookings only, submitted by May 31, 2022 for travel in 2021 or 2022. It is also valid only for individual bookings, not for groups. This offer can be extended or withdrawn at any time, but we will honor its terms for any bookings received while it is in effect. See our terms & conditions for more, on contact us with questions!
