Insight Vacations’s Gold Seal Protection (GSP) plan costs $99 per person. Your GSP plan is available only upon paying your deposit and cannot be added at a later date. Insight Vacations 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.
GSP allows you to cancel your Insight Vacations holiday for any reason without penalty prior to 30 days from the start date of your trip:
Future Travel Credit (FTC) may be redeemed against the cost of a new holiday provided by Insight Vacations 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.
Should your holiday be interrupted and you leave at any time during the trip due to personal illness or injury; or be required to return to Australia because of the serious injury, illness or death of an immediate family member^:
you will be refunded $90 per person/ per day for the unused portion of the holiday. Please note that in some cases hotels require a 1-night cancellation fee.
Insight Vacations will pay the additional cost of airline travel for earlier or later return to Australia in the same class of air travel on the first available flight, provided the original return air tickets were booked through Insight Vacations and Global Jounreys from Australia on Insight Vacations’s recommended airline.
