How does COVID-19 affect my trip?

Due to the current COVID-19 global pandemic we have entered a stage of crisis in which we are trying to navigate the loss of of our season and survival of our staff and business along with the wellbeing of our guests. It is proving incredibly difficult.

We are currently offering all guests complimentary changing/rebooking of their trip but due to the overwhelming number of requests, we are unable to offer refunds, within or outside of 30 days. We urge guests to contact their travel insurance for coverage.

We are working tirelessly to try and find solutions but we are very very sorry for the inconvenience that we know this causes.
