Now is not the time to be travelling but, with vaccinations starting soon, you may be wondering when can you travel. There are three enticing options for the time being: live virtual tours, early booking sale pricing and dateless first departures.
Live Virtual Tours
If you are eagerly awaiting to travel you can start right now with Live Virtual Tours. Join in a cooking class, take an art lesson, practice yoga, see and learn about historical treasures and archeology. All live, interactive and online in your own home. With prices starting at about $25.00 CAD pp what a fun way to spend an hour or two experiencing a new culture.
The great thing is if you take one of the virtual tours you can get a voucher for the value of the cost to use towards a real tour or package later on. There are variations of this offer depending on who is operating the virtual program, so just contact us to learn more.
Want to save money? Make your booking early.
Times have changed and last minute travel deals may be a thing of the past because of the heightened health security issues. People are now booking up to eight months in advance. Some companies have been offering 30% off.
The good news is that most tours and packages are leaving you lots of flexibility to book well in advance without the normal cancellation restrictions. This means you can start planning seriously but if you find plans need to be changed, it is a lot easier. There are quite a few variations of this concept so you need to know what they are before you book, and that’s where we can help. Just email us your destinations and potential dates and we’ll give you the most up to date information. If you prefer to call by phone just dial our toll free number 1 888 543 6450. There is also a connect to call link on the side bar of this post.
Dateless First Departures
Right now it is uncertain when Canada will lift travel bans to various countries. Since acquiring travel insurance coverage hinges upon blanket travel advisories, it makes planning a trip difficult. Most travel companies are offering very flexible change options, but here’s a neat one: Dateless First Departures.
The idea is to get your name on a “when travel opens” list for the country of your choice. When the ban is lifted you will be guaranteed a spot in first month that travel opens up. If for some reason you can’t go in that first month, your deposit can be moved to another departure.
Even though you can’t travel now, there are many deals available for future bookings. The best way to stay informed is check with us by phone or email or follow us on our website or @FCIGeorgeDuffy on Facebook.
