Our new WorldClass Flexibility Guarantee gives you options should your entire group or just an individual need to make a change. This policy also provides coverage should the tour not be able to run due to closures or safety conditions. Read below for complete details.
Travel with Confidence
WorldClass Flexibility for Individuals
If closures, government regulations, or travel restrictions due to COVID-19 prevent the delivery of your tour, the group’s Program Leader can postpone or move the tour with no fees associated or choose to cancel for the group. We will do our best to communicate to the Program Leader a decision as to if the tour can operate within 45-60 days of departure.
Any trip participant who has to cancel will receive back any money previously paid to WorldStrides minus all non-refundable fees and the following: a $399 cancellation fee for international tours, $289 cancellation fee for domestic air tours, or a $149 cancellation fee for domestic bus tours.
If you have purchased the Full Refund Program or Cancel for Any Reason insurance, you’ll receive the full refund available under those policies, minus the amount paid for the protection plan.
WorldClass Flexibility for Groups
At any time up to 45 days prior to departure for domestic tours and 60 days prior for international tours, the group’s Program Leader can work with WorldStrides to change tour dates or destinations for any reason. The group will pay no change fees, just the difference (if applicable) in the price of the new trip. This flexibility protects groups that choose to postpone their tour before it is known whether or not the tour can safely run with respect to COVID-19.
Stress-Free Individual Flexibility
We understand that individuals may need to make different decisions for themselves and our significantly reduced cancellation fees for 2020 participants whose tours were postponed due to COVID-19 will remain in place for the rescheduled 2021 tours until June 30, 2021.
If your 2020 trip was postponed until July 30, 2021 or later, the reduced cancellation fees will remain in place until 151 days (about 5 months) before your new departure date. AFter that time, the WorldClass Flexibility outlined above will be applied.
*Please Note: These policies apply to K-12 group tour programs only. Performing arts festivals, bowl games, and tours; graduation celebrations; sports; higher ed; and individual programs may have different options for flexibility. Consult your WorldStrides representative.
