Individuals who would like to request a different flight itinerary from the rest of the group must submit a Special Travel Request by 110 days before departure. Special travel plans include flying ahead of the group before tour, staying behind after the tour ends, flying into or out of a different domestic gateway or making one’s own flight arrangements entirely.
Special Travel Requests cannot be confirmed until the group’s tour and dates are confirmed approximately 70 days before departure. Travelers should not book any flights or make separate arrangements until they receive this confirmation. Please note that travelers with alternate travel plans are booked on a separate flight itinerary from the group, which means they might fly separately from the group on all legs of their journey.
Travelers can make their request by filling out the Special Travel Request online. (Log in and visit your tour’s “Special travel” tab in the “Manage your tour” section.) Those who wish to submit a paper Special Travel Request form should call Customer Service at 800-665-5364.
Group Leaders may request special flight and/or land travel arrangements for their entire group. The group may fly before the start of tour or stay behind after the tour ends, and any additional travel costs would be added to each traveler’s balance. Group Leaders should make any group special travel requests with their Tour Consultant before their first enrollment.
