If your tour was cancelled list it here ...
Indicate tour name and date, and date when you found out it was cancelled. Hopefully this may serve as a reference as to when tours are more frequently cancelled - or less popular. That said, you NEED to get insurance!!

Tour Name:
Tour Date:
Date it was cancellled:

    I believe the Spanish Spree for August 22-September 5 was can canceled; I can’t imagine why, it seems like a good time to go to Spain. Is there anyone who was booked for this that can elaborate on what happened?

    The Sapa Extension on 04th September.

    Found out today due to lack of numbers.
    Contiki have provided me with web addresses for 2 different companies that do Sapa treks though so I will still try and book it direct myself.

    Have since found a Sapa trip through Intrepid Travel for 5 days so have booked this instead Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Tour Name:Sapa Trekking Extension
    Tour Date:30/3/2011
    Date cancelled:16/7/2010
    Went to book my trip today only to find out that the extention tour has been cancelled. How can they cancel something 8 months out due to insuffient numbers, when some people don’t book until 1 or 2 months before the trip??

    I’ve just booked Spanish Spree (winter) Jan 10. This is my first contiki, does anyone think this is likely to get cancelled? It is in winter, but i thought it’s near xmas season so a lot of people will be on holidays.

    and ideas?

    Hi everybody! I’m sorry for your bad experiences… hope it won’t happen to us, especially because, as we work, is would be very hard to change dates… I booked Grand Explorer, NZ, reverse (from Christchurch) departure 18th of december 2010… Did Contiki ever cancel a tour in NZ? I tought it was going to be a crowded date, because of Xma time, but I’m a little bit nervous, because all departures in december are just definitive departures, but not mine…. is it a bad sign?
    Thanks for any advice!

    Mediterranean Highlights (Winter start ex Madrid)30th October departure has been cancelled. Wasn’t a guaranteed departure. Was extremely disappointed to start with, but I was able to get on the European Discovery 2nd November departure, so it all worked out for the better!!

    Hi Marina, this departure is now a definite departure – december and january is summer time in NZ so they hardly ever get cancelled – most of the time people have trouble getting ON these tours! Have a great time!

    I find it a tad contradictory that the moderators are encouraging people to wait until you have received confirmation and travel documents from Contiki before booking flights etc. When it states in the letter I received when I booked my tour that travel documents etc will not be posted out until I notify contiki of my flight details.
