TORONTO – Intrepid allows travelers to change their travel plans three weeks before their departure with its new flexible booking policy.
Designed to provide customers with greater peace of mind during the COVID-19 pandemic, the new “flexible bookings” policy allows travel plans to be changed 21 days before a scheduled departure, allowing for new travel dates or an entirely different trip with no change fees.
Deposits are the only charges travelers will pay up to 21 days prior to departure, and if plans change, the deposit will be transferred to another trip.
Travelers can also book travel without payment for up to five days.
âWe want to make sure that your customers can confidently book and modify, relocate or cancel their trips without any hassle,â said Brett Mitchell, Commercial Director of Intrepid Travel.
All Intrepid world tours have been on hold until at least September 30, 2020 due to the pandemic, but when they resume they will operate under new Safe Travel protocols developed and approved by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC ).
Intrepid recently received the Safe Travels Seal from the WTTC, which indicates that it has adopted standardized global health and hygiene protocols. These include improved sanitation, contactless technology solutions, physical distancing in accommodation, transport and restaurants, as well as health checks before and during travel. Intrepid will not require a negative COVID-19 test before joining a trip, unless it is a condition of entry for the country.
