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?

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.

A couple of weeks before you tour; your documents will be shipped out.

Passports and Visas

All passengers require a MACHINE -READABLE Passport and it is the responsibility of each passenger to have appropriate entry vises and a Passport valid for the entire duration of their trip. Multiple-entry visas are needed for some countries. Please contact applicable government authorities to get necessary travel information.

Walking Tours

A number of cities in Europe are developing as havens for pedestrians (for example Rome, Florence, Venice, Salzburg, and Cambridge) and many Insight Vacations feature special walking tours in these locations. Comfortable walking shoes are therefore recommended for all passengers.

Plan Your Budget

You are advised to do this well in advance and be sure to allocate funds for special events while on tour, such as theater, celebration meals, shopping, and side trips, & 'Optional Excursions'.

Optional Excursions

Unlike most tour operators, with Insight you will enjoy many of Europe's famous highlights as included features on your tour at no extra cost. However, there is an exciting array of additional highlight excursions available to enhance your enjoyment. These excursions are optional and are offered at special prices. They are only bookable once you start your tour, as many of them are programmed to coincide with the highlights available. A list (and cost) of these and many more options is included in your tour documentation. You can book and pay for them through your Tour Director. Don't forget to budget for these Additional Exciting Highlights. They will only come around once on the tour of your choice, and you won't want to miss out on them.

Complaints Procedure

Should you have a complaint in respect of your holiday, you should inform your Insight Tour Director or Representative during the course of your holiday. If the matter cannot be resolved after the representative's best endeavors to do so during the holiday, your complaint should be made in writing to Insight Vacations as soon as possible after the holiday.

Smoking Policy

There is a No Smoking policy whilst travelling. However, we make plenty of convenience stops, allowing you ample opportunity to smoke if you wish, use local restroom facilities, take a scenic snapshot or just relax and enjoy a cup of coffee.
