It means if you need to cancel for any reason, your deposit will remain secure until you’re ready to use it on new trip dates or on a different trip, ensuring your deposit isn't lost if you can't travel on your original trip as intended. FlexDeposit can be used up until your 36th birthday, after which time it can then be transferred for use with any other travel brand within The Travel Corporation family of brands. It can also be gifted to a friend within 5 years of the original booking date. To gift to family or friend the customer must email confirmation to Contiki stating the nominated name.

In the case of multiple deposits due to back to back trips, only one deposit amount can be credited per trip, they cannot be combined. However multiple trips can be booked using multiple FlexDeposits.
