A view of the shore of Capri on your culinary tour of ItalyUpdated September 23, 2020.

Times are strange these days, aren’t they? People are hunkered down in their homes, worried about their jobs, anxiously watching the news, and even homeschooling their children. The only thing that seems certain in the age of COVID-19 is that right now everything seems so very uncertain.

All this makes it hard to plan for travel. 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. And they don’t want to miss out on the chance to travel. But how can one plan a trip when we’re not certain when the current shelter-in-place restrictions and travel advisories will end?

Cheese and wine during our Living the Real Tuscan Dream culinary tour.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 a Worry Free Booking Promotion for 2020 and 2021 travel.

What is a “Worry free booking”? 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 your money back. A 30% deposit is required to book, and balance payment is due 31 days prior to the start date. Whether you are hoping to squeeze in a trip later this summer, this fall, or next year, 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 60+ trips that are eligible for this special and unprecedented promotion (list is subject to change, please consult Terms & Conditions for up-to-date list):
