COVID-Related Policy Updates
What if my trip is postponed due to travel restrictions:
For trips in international destinations where the borders aren’t open yet for American travelers, we will be reviewing trips at 65 days but no later than 35 days prior to departure (or closer as the situation changes) to determine if it is feasible to run the trip. In the event your trip is postponed, we will place 100% of your trip funds (including Travel Protection Plan, if applicable) on account along with an additional bonus credit per guest to be used for future travel.*
*All funds and credit must be applied to a new reservation by 12/31/23.
Travel in 2021 with more flexibility:
Backroads is providing new, more flexible booking policies in order for you to plan your future travel with complete peace of mind.
Choose from thousands of worldwide trips in 2021 and 2022, which are all available to explore online and book now! When you’re ready to travel, give us a call. We love to share our passion for travel and our trips.
