Closures & Restrictions Due to COVID-19

5/29/20

As a precaution, some destinations have decided to restrict arrivals for a specified period of time. Please review the list below for the latest details.

If you were scheduled to travel to a destination that has a travel ban or restrictions in place for the U.S. and have not already cancelled your trip, we will cancel the trip for you and issue a Future Travel Credit for the full amount* of your cancelled trip. We will also cancel your trip if the airline portion of your reservation has been affected.

You do not need to contact us regarding your cancellation or travel credit. We will reach out to you with more information once the travel credit is processed.

If you purchased your vacation using Uplift, you will receive a travel credit that reflects the total trip cost; however, you will need to continue your payments until you satisfy the loan amount. If you purchased your vacation using our Deposit Program, any outstanding payments will be voided and your travel credit will be for the amount paid thus far.

Due to the unprecedented increase in service requests from customers, processing and issuing future travel credits is taking longer than usual. Rest assured that our team members are working hard to get through all requests as soon as possible.

*Future Travel Credit will not include the cost of travel protection, if purchased.
