2. Pricing Breakdowns
Please note per our supplier contracts, we cannot offer a breakdown of pricing for packaged vacations.
3. Travel Insurance Acknowledgment
Emergencies can happen when you least expect them. Globe Getaways highly recommends that all clients purchase a travel insurance policy to protect their investment in their vacation. Cruise lines, airlines, hotels, and tour operators all charge high penalties for cancellation, ranging from the deposit to the full price of your vacation. In addition, most health insurance policies will not cover you while out of the country including in international waters on a cruise. To obtain coverage for certain pre-existing conditions, your policy must be purchased at the time of booking or within 14-21 days thereafter depending on the terms of the policy. Please understand that we are not licensed insurance agents, therefore cannot legally provide specific advice or information regarding insurance policies. We will gladly secure a quote for you and provide information to contact the vendor for specific questions. If Globe Getaways does not or is not legally able to secure coverage on your behalf, it is our strong recommendation that you purchase a travel policy on your own.
By paying the service fee, I am acknowledging I have read and understood the “Travel Insurance Acknowledgment” above. Should I choose not to purchase a travel insurance policy, I accept all responsibility for declining to secure coverage.
