What is AAT Kings’s Gold Seal Protection (GSP)?

AAT Kings's Gold Seal Protection provides you with additional peace of mind should your travel plans change. Benefits start prior to your holiday and also while your travelling.

Pre-departure Cancellation

GSP allows you to cancel your AAT Kings holiday for any reason without penalty prior to 30 days from the start date of your trip:

  • if no Force Majeure Event* has occurred when you cancel, the value of your AAT Kings Holiday Pre-payment** will be refunded; or
  • if a Force Majeure Event* has occurred causing you to cancel, the AAT Kings Holiday Pre-payment** will be converted to a Future Travel Credit (FTC) of the same value.

Future Travel Credit (FTC) may be redeemed against the cost of a new holiday provided by AAT Kings or one of Travel Corporation sister brands, departing at any time within 24 months of your cancellation. It is not redeemable for cash. If the new trip or departure is more expensive than the FTC you are responsible for the difference in price; if the new trip or departure is less expensive than the FTC, a new FTC will be issued for the difference.

Airline travel costs and any related cancellation or rebooking costs are not covered by the Gold Seal Protection Plan.

Please note that the Gold Seal Protection Plan cost is not refundable for any reason. Global Journey's fees and cancellation costs may apply.
