Cancellation policy after booking a tour?

Hi
If I book a tour for 2020 and can't travel, what are the cancellation rules?
Thanks

Hi Madhu. This happened to me this year. I booked the Village Italy tour for April but was diagnosed with cancer in January. Fortunately I had taken travel insurance through Travel Guard when I booked the tour. It took awhile & there is a ridiculous amount of paperwork to submit with this insurance company, but eventually I got all of my money back. I had already booked my flight on American & had purchased insurance through them when I purchased the ticket. American partners with Allianz & that process for getting reimbursed was much easier. There are many insurance companies that provide travel insurance- some have a “cancel for any reason” option. Just do your research. You usually have to purchase the insurance 14 days from the time you sign up for a tour ( I think). It definitely gives you some piece of mind. Good luck.
