You may engage your advisor to work with you to create an outline of your trip, and we can book it when you feel comfortable. You may not know when you will take the trip, but you can still enjoy the fun of dreaming and planning with your advisor!


We know how frustrating it is to be put on hold for hours when you need answers. Our team is available to answer your questions, dream about travel, and help you navigate this unprecedented time via phone, email, or video chat. We can even arrange three-way calls with our on-the-ground partners so you can ask questions and get information straight from the sources.


Many partners have or will be adjusting their cancellation policies to offer more flexibility. We will get the exact policy language from our partners for you, so that you can make informed decisions about booking your travel. In the event of cancellations your advisor will be available to work for you to make necessary changes and work on your behalf. There may be additional service fees to provide for these services, and your advisor will share those at that time for your approval.

Note: Some hotels and tour operators have changed their terms and conditions due to government policies. We will make sure you understand what this means for you should you book a trip or trip components in one of these destinations.


As travel restrictions, policies, and protocols change, we are committed to transparency and getting you factual information so you can make informed decisions. For more information or to talk to an advisor, contact us here.
