YOUR GLOBUS HOLIDAY CAN BE MOVED WITHOUT INCURRING ANY CANCELLATION FEES FOR TRAVEL
May 17, 2021
In response to ongoing travel restrictions and government advisements, we have made the thoughtful decision to suspend operations through August 31, 2021. Some domestic tours will continue.
Given these circumstances, Globus continues our program designed to give our travellers flexibility when considering their travel plans.
Through this program, Globus is allowing guests with bookings on any suspended travel dates to move dates easily and without incurring cancellation fees*.
You are free to move your booking to any Globus family of brands (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) holiday for any destination. If you are not ready to choose your new holiday, the full value paid to us will be provided via a Future Booking Credit, redeemable for any future departure through to 2022, and is transferrable.
To make the transition easier, this Plan includes an additional bonus credit. This bonus credit of up to $300 per person will be in addition to your Future Booking Credit, redeemable for any future travel through 2022:
To decline this offer and cancel, those on holidays that have been suspended with departures August 31, 2021 must advise us by June 9, 2021**.
And for added flexibility for future travel plans, we’re also offering a Peace of Mind Travel Plan, allowing you to move your 2021 or 2022 booking to any other date, departure or brand up until your final payment date. Click here for details:

TRAVEL UPDATE (AS OF May 17, 2021)
In response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, the elevated travel restrictions, government advisements, and most importantly, to ensure the safety of each one of our guests, Globus is voluntarily and temporarily pausing global operations for travel through August 31, 2021. Operations of select domestic tours will continue.
Our guest services team is in contact with guests affected by this suspension in order to adjust their plans for future travel.
