How many non-definite departures get cancelled?

19 Feb 2014 TraceyW asked


My boyfriend and I are looking at booking a tour that is not a definite departure date (the European Discovery departing November 4th). It is the only tour that really fits with the dates we have for holidays - we are going to Ireland for a wedding so are limited on time. I am just wondering if anyone has booked a non-definite departure that has actually been cancelled, or what the minimum number of people that have to book a tour is for it to go ahead.

    Hi Tracey,
    In order for a departure to be guaranteed the trip needs to have at least 25 people booked. I booked a trip for Mediterranean Highlights departing June 30th but its not definite yet… From what I hear summer season trips usually fill up. So I hope it will be eventually. Though its still quite early and there’s plenty of time.
