Coronavirus Update:  December 4, 2020

The travel industry received some very good news recently, as Pfizer and Moderna reported that data for their COVID vaccines indicate effective rates of 95% and 94.5%, respectively. Both companies expect these vaccines to be authorized for use in December, and other vaccines are close behind in the testing and approval process.

While tours and river cruises have not yet restarted for most travelers around the world, vaccine distribution will speed up the rate at which countries open their borders to international visitors and tours are able to resume. We will let you know when tour and river cruise companies are operating again.

Below we’ve listed dates of suspended service by tour and river cruise operator and provided links to each company's policy covering future travel credits (FTCs) and refunds on canceled trips. We have also provided links to relaxed cancelation terms for bookings on future vacations.
 
In general, tour operators and river cruise companies are offering generous incentives to customers who accept future travel credits (FTCs) in lieu of a refund on a trip that has been canceled by the operator. These FTCs can be applied to a future vacation with the same operator and booked at Vacations To Go’s terrific rates.
 
Due to a backlog of refund requests, it may take tour and river cruise operators up to 90 days after the cancelation date to return funds to customers.
 
No further action is needed if the booking is canceled and it is not necessary to contact Vacations To Go.
