If you’re like many travelers, you want to start planning your vacation. But there’s that nagging feeling of, “Yeah, but…” What if borders don’t open in time to the place I want to go? Or the vaccine rollout is not as fast as expected? Or. Or. Or.
We get it. That’s why we’ve taken our normal terms and conditions that were already industry-leading in being guest friendly and made them even more flexible. So that you can book with even more confidence that if things change, you can change your mind. And cancel for any reason.
How does the Cancel For Any Reason work?
It’s simple. Choose the tour you want from our selection of published departure dates in 2021 or 2022. Make your new reservation on a published departure between 8:00 am EST January 15, 2021 to 8:00 pm EST March 31, 2021, for travel between January 16, 2021 and December 31, 2022. Reference 2011CFAR when making a reservation with a deposit of $500 per person. You may cancel for any reason until 91 days prior to departure of your reserved tour and receive a refund of $300 per person plus a future trip credit of $200 per person to use on any Classic Journeys tour. If you cancel for any reason between 90-61 days prior to departure of your reserved tour, you keep 100% of your $500 per person deposit as a future tour credit to use on any Classic Journeys tour. Your future tour credits never expire.
What happens if I cancel between 60 and 0 days prior to departure of my reserved tour? You’ll still find that we want to treat you the way we’d like to be treated. So our standard Terms and Conditions apply and are among the most guest-friendly of any company.
How do Classic Journeys normal Terms and Conditions compare to your competitors? That’s a great question. We regularly benchmark them against a basket of our most acclaimed competitors to ensure that you are receiving the most value, even in payment schedules and booking terms. The industry average for our basket of competitors is a deposit of around $700 per person, an industry average balance due at 91 days prior to departure, an industry average cancellation fee of $250 per person if you cancel until 92 days prior to departure, and an industry average cancellation fee of 35% of total trip cost if you cancel between 92 and 61 days prior to departure. Compare that to our standard Terms and Conditions and you’ll see another way that Classic Journeys provides you added value and flexibility in your travels.
What if I need to transfer from one published departure date to another? You can transfer from one published tour date to another until 75 days before your departure without any penalty.
What if I’m thinking about a new reservation? Go where, how, and with whomever you want. Join one of our award-winning, boutique, small group departures or a private trip just for you, your family, or your friends. With six ways to travel (Culture + Walking, Multisport, Family, Culinary, River Cruising), you can let your interests guide you as you choose from over 100 regions in 50 countries on six continents.
What if I have specific travel dates? Choose from hundreds of available dates. Don’t see a published departure when you want to travel? Give us a call to talk with us about adding an additional public departure during your preferred dates.
What if I want to travel with just my family or a group of friends? Of course! Opt for a Private Journey and travel with your own group on any day of the year. You can check off your own bucket list destination and even your own wish list of bucket list experiences by customizing any of our itineraries, a little or a lot.
What if my trip is postponed? If your trip is postponed, 100% of the funds you’ve paid will be available for your rescheduled tour. Or, you can choose to move to a new tour or departure date, or to have them credited to your account as a future tour credit for future travel with Classic Journeys, without expiry.

Details, details, details…These terms apply only to published departure dates and exclude departures of private tours, river cruising, special edition and some select departures of other tours. See our Terms and Conditions for a listing of those tours that are excluded. Nothing here is meant to replace travel insurance as a means to help protect your travel investment. You’ll find details on travel insurance options in your deposit confirmation package that we email to you right after you book your trip. Given this ever-evolving situation, please understand that Classic Journeys reserves the right to update or change these policies without prior notice to keep up with the current dynamic state of affairs.
