NOTICE: DUE TO COVID19, For the Love of Travel is suspending all trips through MAy 15th, 2020

Updated 4/15/2020:

Given the unprecedented impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been updating our Booking Terms & Conditions and cancellation policies to adapt to the constantly evolving nature of this pandemic. All updates are effective immediately. 

 

Travelers of postponed trips will receive credit to put towards a future trip. This travel credit will be valid through December 31st, 2022.

 

To accommodate current uncertainty around travel, anyone booked on trips between June 1st and July 31st may transfer to a different trip or request to cancel for travel credit (valid through December 31st, 2022) up to 30 days before their trip departure without penalty (instead of the regular 90 days).

 

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time. Please know that our small team is working tirelessly to address the needs of our FTLO Family - travelers, trip leaders, local suppliers and each other. We will get through this together and look forward to exploring with you on the other side.

COVID-19 - Updated 3/3/2020

 

We know there is a lot of concern/confusion about the Coronavirus (Covid19) and travel plans. Please know that we are monitoring the situation closely and at this time do not foresee having to cancel any summer trips. The safety and wellbeing of our travelers is our number one priority and we take the guidance of the CDC, the State Department, and the ministries and stakeholders in countries we visit very seriously. 

 

None of our itineraries are currently affected and are continuing as normal. That said, if the United States Department of State and the Centers of Disease Control were to issue “Do Not Travel” warnings to areas where we operate trips, FTLO would cancel those particular departures and allow travelers to change to a departure at a future date, move their deposits to another destination or receive a refund. Please note, in this case we cannot be responsible for any incidental expenses including flights and visas, and highly recommend purchasing travel insurance that covers cancellation “for any reason.” If you have any questions about your upcoming trip, please email support@ftlotravel.com.

 

Note: If you are signed up for a trip and have recently been to an area affected by a serious outbreak (China, Iran, South Korea, northern Italy) please contact us before your trip to discuss.
