Part A – Cancellation Waiver provided by Premier World Discovery
I. Trip Cancellation Waiver (TCW)
Payment of the per person Travel Protection Plan Fee guarantees full refund on all payments (including Deposit), except the Travel Protection Plan Fee itself, made for tour rates in case of cancellation up to the time and date of departure due to the passenger’s personal illness (medical documentation required) or death of a member of the immediate family (official documentation required). If the passenger must return early due to the passenger’s personal illness or death of a member of the immediate family, payment of the protection plan fee guarantees a refund for the unused land services.
II. Premier “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver (ARCW)
Payment of the per person Travel Protection Plan Fee also includes an “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver. The “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver provides you with 75% of the cancellation fees in the form of a future travel credit certificate, should you cancel your tour more than 48 hours prior to your scheduled departure for any reason that is not eligible for cash reimbursement under the Trip Cancellation Waiver (Section I.). Cancellation fees are reimbursed in the form of a Premier World Discovery future travel certificate allowing you to travel with us at a later date within one year of the original departure date. Future travel certificate is valid for one year, is non-transferable, non-refundable, may not be redeemed for cash, and does not include any credit for the non-refundable Travel Protection Plan Fee. The Travel Protection Plan Fee (if chosen) is refundable until 180 days prior to departure & cannot be added after Final Payment. The Travel Protection Plan Fee does not cover any single supplement charges which arise from an individual’s traveling companion canceling prior to departure. Under this scenario, the single supplement will be deducted from the refund of the person who cancels. Division of the charges is to be determined by the two passengers. The Travel Protection Plan Fee is non-transferable and valid for each applicant only. The Travel Protection Plan does not cover any services such as airline tickets not purchased through Premier World Discovery.

Premier World Discovery reserves the right to alter its Refund and Cancellation Policy In the event of an act of God, war (whether declared or undeclared), terrorism, accident, natural disaster, outbreak of disease, or other event or circumstance beyond our control that contributes to or results in cancellation rates above our historical cancellation rates in the absence of such event or occurrence.
