18 March 2020

Due to the escalating COVID-19 situation and travel restrictions constantly changing, Insider Journeys are extremely sorry to advise we have had to make an unfortunate decision on all Small Group Journeys departing up until 15 April 2020.

Effective Wednesday 18 March 2020, all Small Group Journeys departures will be suspended from now until 15 April 2020. This decision has been made by placing the safety and wellbeing of our clients as our number one priority.

All suspended Small Group Journeys will have funds placed on hold and can be used for future travel until 31 December 2020 with no tour change fees charged.

FIT Travel will be assessed on a case by case basis and our Reservations team will be in contact with either yourself or your travel agent regarding this.

Travel departing from 16 April 2020

If you have travel booked with Insider Journeys from 16 April 2020 and would like to cancel, our standard terms and conditions will apply. We will endeavour to recover as much monies as possible from our suppliers and refund this to you or your Travel agent.

If you have already cancelled due to COVID-19, you may have already accepted amended terms and conditions which cannot be rescinded.

We understand that this situation is stressful for everyone and appreciate your patience and understanding. We are doing our best to communicate with our customers and suppliers as quickly as possible.
