For most tour companies, a group is considered 8 or more passengers traveling together. The group will receive a booking discount and depending on the size of the group, free travel benefits may apply. Please call our Group Department at 1-866-475-7023.
You must now decide some key points.
How long do you want your tour to last? Examples: 7, 10, 14 days or longer.
What dates are possible that everyone in the group is able to travel? (It is wise to have more than one date available.)
The itinerary — what areas do you want to tour? Examples: Caribbean, Europe, Alaska, Hawaii, or Eastern U.S. and Canada
What type of tour are you interested in?
Fully escorted, leisure style, independent?
What type of accommodations are you interested in?
Budget (the least expensive), first class, deluxe or luxury (the most expensive)?
How many in the group will be bringing children?
Does anyone in the group need a handicapped cabin or have any special needs.
Does anyone require air travel and if so from where?
Do you have anyone who is not an U. S. citizen?
Will anyone be traveling as a single?
Now that you have discussed the basics with your group, it is time to call your our Tour Specialist to begin getting prices and discuss the particulars that your group will require.
Your tour specialist will be asking the questions that we have listed above. He or she will work with you on prices and the planning materials that will make your job easier. If you feel it necessary, your tour specialist will be able to supply you with informational flyers and brochures to pass out at your next meeting. At this meeting it will be time to pass out the registration forms for those that are interested. This form will have space for the names of the passengers, their address, phone number, choice of cabin type, place for special needs, and whether or not they want travel insurance.
Your tour is a vacation investment and we highly suggest the protection of travel insurance.
The form will also give payment dates. We will keep track of payment dates and automatically charge credit cards at the pre-authorized amounts and times. So you will be free to dream about your upcoming tour vacation. After the forms are filled out your tour specialist will then begin booking your group. A couple of weeks before you tour; your documents will be shipped out. Documents are normally sent to the group leader for distribution. If they will need to be sent out to various addresses, there may be a minimal charge for shipment.
We hope that these suggestions have been helpful to you. When your group is ready to tour, please call our group department.
