Exceptions: The following deposit and/or final payment dates apply to these vacations. Please see your invoice for more information on deposit and/or final payment dates.

  • Additional $250 non-refundable deposit (total $500 non-refundable) is required for air booked in conjunction with any land vacation (i.e. an air-inclusive vacation). Air can only be booked by Avalon Waterways in conjunction with a land package.

Avalon Waterways accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover/Novus, and American Express. If Avalon Waterways does not receive final payment by the due date, it reserves the right to cancel the reservation and retain your full deposit and any Travel Protection premiums. Avalon Waterways is not responsible for canceled land or air reservations in the event payment is not received by the final payment date. Payment in full is required at time of booking for reservations made within the final payment date of your vacation (in most cases within 90 days of departure).

Cancellation fees may also apply to any additional services, including accommodations, independently supplied services, and optional excursions reserved prior to, during, and after the tour.

If flight changes—including flight cancellations or name changes—are requested after full land and air deposit is received, revision fees, change fees, or airline cancellation fees will apply. If an air-inclusive vacation is canceled after air tickets have been issued, refunds will be processed after air tickets are returned to Avalon Waterways. In many instances, airline revision or change fees can be up to $250 but in some instances may be up to 100% of the ticket price. Cancellation penalties will be quoted at time of cancellation.

Avalon Waterways reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any vacation departure for any reason. If a vacation is canceled prior to departure, Avalon Waterways' only responsibility will be to refund to the passenger the amount it has received for the reservation. It will try to re-book the same vacation with a different departure date, or a similar vacation. Where Avalon Waterways has confirmed flights, it will try to confirm air schedules for the selected new dates, subject to availability. Avalon Waterways cannot assume responsibility for any additional costs or any fees relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of air tickets or other travel arrangements not made through Avalon Waterways.

Timetables and rates are subject to change, and exceptions may apply for holiday departures; please confirm payment and cancellation policies with your Vacations To Go travel counselor at time of booking. Deposit, payment and cancellation terms may differ for group bookings.

Purchase of travel insurance may reduce or eliminate the cancellation and interruption fees outlined above. For more information please call your Vacations To Go travel counselor.
