We've decided to cancel all of our Rick Steves' Europe tour departures
through April 19, and we are closely monitoring the situation, with a
plan to cancel additional departures as needed.

But they are taking deposits for tours leaving May 3rd.

Any chance RS will lower the 60 day in advance rule for paying the balance? Our Greece tour leaves May 23 meaning we pay the additional big $$$ by March 23. Would like to wait a few weeks longer to see how things are going.

That's easy enough to unwind. That does seem a bit optimistic now to me, but any business has gotta pick some arbitrary date. They can always just push the date back a month or two at a time as it approaches (that's what I would expect any smart business to do - note how the airlines are doing the same thing).
