For Clients with Travel in 2020

For our clients whose travel plans include a departure in 2020, if you need to reschedule your existing bookings, we’ll make our best effort to work with our suppliers to minimize, or avoid, penalties when it’s possible. Please contact us for assistance.

Flexibility for bookings

As a reminder, when you book with Authentic Vacations our Risk-Free Booking Policy is automatically included for you, our client. Simply put, should you need to change your travel dates, you can reschedule your trip up to 30-days prior to your departure date for ANY REASON. And, you may rebook your trip within one year of original departure with no penalties from Authentic Vacations. Your deposit and any payments made will be credited towards your rebooked tour, with absolutely no cancellation or change fees applied.

While Authentic Vacations does not charge you a cancellation or change fee when you rebook your travel plans, there could be rate, fare and cancellation differences imposed by suppliers, such as host inns or airlines. Please know we are here to work with our suppliers on your behalf. Our constant goal is to minimize, or eliminate, these types of penalties for date changes whenever possible.

We want your travels to be stress-free, filled with relaxation and wonder.
