Aqua Expeditions

June 18th, 2020

PLAN AHEAD AND BOOK WITH FLEXIBILITY AND PEACE OF MIND DURING TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY

In an uncertain time, we are offering you certainty and peace of mind. Our number one priority at Aqua Expeditions is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our guests and crew throughout this challenging period. As a small ship expedition company, that is ISM (International Safety Management) compliant which ensures highest hygiene and safety standards for vessels, we guarantee a maximum of only 30/40 guests aboard offering world-class experiences in exotic destinations.

Considering the evolving situation around the globe, we are adopting special measures to address our guests’ concerns about travelling and booking.

  • We have amended our booking policy in order to offer you flexible conditions allowing you to postpone your trip free of charge to provide you with peace of mind with regards to your travel plans.
  • Suspension of all scheduled departures in accordance with the travel restrictions and border closures placed by the governments in the country of our destinations, with planned departures resuming August 2020.
  • We took early, swift and decisive action to maintain strict anti-viral hygiene standards on all our vessels and are performing health screenings for all passengers prior to embarkation. We have no cases of COVID-19 onboard of any of our vessels. Aqua Expeditions has been following, and will continue to follow, the advice released by the World Health Organisation for coronavirus prevention.
    • Case-by-case assessment will be made for embarkation of guests who have travelled to/through COVID-19 crisis regions in the past 14 days. We reserve the right to deny boarding of guests in order to maintain the wellbeing and safety of our passengers and crew.
    • On board controls include pre-boarding medical evaluations i.e. past travel assessments at reservation level, mandatory health questionnaire providing detailed information 14 days prior to boarding, standard health reporting at embarkation, additional temperature checks by our resident paramedics and registering of all cases with flu-like symptoms to relevant authorities.
    • Masks and hand sanitizers are provided to all guests and crew as needed, as well as increasing the level of environmental disinfection in addition to our regular stringent sanitation protocols.

*All measures are subject to change and to any imposed requirements from local authorities

To add reassurance to our customers’ travel plans, we work with Ripcord insurance, offering an option to purchase comprehensive travel insurance for any unforeseen travel modifications of your entire trip.

We continue to monitor the situation, so that we can be responsive and attend to our guests in the highest level of safety and comfort.

Avalon Waterways

Avanti Destinations

COVID-19 UPDATE – Applied to bookings departing through October 31, 2020

If you have customers scheduled to travel next month, our team will be reaching out via email to review options for all affected bookings departing on or before October 31, 2020.

How does the Land Future Travel Credit (Land FTC) work?

  • Avanti will provide a Land FTC which can be used for travel to be completed by December 31, 2021. This credit can be used to any destination that Avanti sells.
  • The Land FTC is issued per person. Not all people have to rebook together on the new booking.
  • After the new booking is created, the Land FTC(s) will be applied and deducted from the gross total. If the new booking exceeds the Land FTC value, the passengers are responsible for paying the balance of the booking.
  • The Land FTC is not refundable and has no cash value.
  • Commission will be paid on the new booking, not on the cancelled booking.

Additionally, please note that we have made the following updates to provide the most flexibility for your bookings affected by the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • The Land FTC can be transferred to another person. An Indemnification Agreement Release form must be signed and returned back to Avanti Destinations.
  • The Air and Land FTCs are not dependent on each other. In other words, you can take either the Air or Land FTC stand alone. Please note when accepting only the Air FTC, land minimum requirements still apply.
  • If the air has been ticketed via the Air Deposit, Avanti will issue an Air FTC for the value of the Air Deposit for bookings scheduled to depart on or before October 31, 2020. The air does not have to be paid in full before the Air FTC is issued. The new airfare must be equal or greater value of the original airfare.
  • Final payment for future bookings will be due 45 days prior to departure (instead of 75 days).

For more details and further terms and conditions, please visit https://www.avantidestinations.com/WebHomeCovid19.jsp?a=covid-19.

If you have any questions regarding this, you are welcome to call our dedicated COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-970-0341 Monday-Friday 8:00am – 4:00pm PST to speak to a specialist.
