Globus Extends Suspension Through August

The Globus family of brands – Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways – has extended the suspension of travel worldwide through August 31, 2020.

(Previously, the Globus family of brands had suspended travel through June 30, 2020).

For travellers affected by this new suspension, the Globus family is extending its Peace of Mind Travel Plan. The company envisions a return to Europe – and likely, additional worldwide destinations – by September.

Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands, observed that: “There is still uncertainty in travel with inconsistent plans for reopening states, regions and countries as well as compromised air schedules and access to the world’s must-see sites.”

Nisbet continued: “To add some certainty to this situation, we are giving control back to our travellers – and their advisors – by being proactive and looking ahead through August.  And, in doing that, we are giving them the right options, adequate time and high levels of attention and consideration to help them to reset and adjust their international vacation plans for a time when the world is ready for them.”

The Globus family of brands’ Peace of Mind Travel Plan provides travellers booked on affected vacations the freedom to reschedule their vacation in 2020, 2021 or 2022, to any destination, on any brand, without incurring cancellation fees.

As well, the Plan also offers travellers a credit of up to $200 per person when they make their new plans. Letters of Credit issued to travellers are also transferable.

Nisbet said that although “the world has changed but our commitment to our guests’ safety, comfort and peace-of-mind remains steadfast.”

And he noted that: “To that end, we have used this temporary pause to establish a worldwide Assurance team, developing enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures to ensure the health – and happiness – of those who entrust their vacations with us. We will share more details about our plans soon.”
