    Hi Guys,

    My European Highlights tour starting on 2nd May was canceled. I managed to re-book on the European Spirit starting in Paris on 28th April, has anyone else booked this tour? I’m also booked in for the Corfu Explorer for a couple of days staying at the Contiki resort.

    I’m doing a winter wanderer of Europe. In my research this tour would go ahead. I am worried about the Scotland tour (winter) and would be upset if cancelled without options.

    What happens when a tour is cancelled? Does travel insurance pay for your flights?

    I looked at one travel insurance, and it excludes tours being cancelled for not enough people.

    Most travel insurance will not cover your flights if the tour is canceled for not enough people.

    You’re options in terms of that is to either wait until the tour is guaranteed to book the airfare. Or take a look at what the change fees are for your flight, often it’s only about $100 each way. If you find a good deal early then eating the $200 isn’t a big deal, assming you choose to book book another tour. Also, you can book your airfare through contiki.

    The big indochina tour may have been canceled due to the unrest in Thailand.

    Though things have calmed down there considerably.

    I have found one travel insurance that will cover the flight costs, if the tour is cancelled due to insufficient people.
