Monograms Travel Update

Including Flexible Booking and Travel Options

April 12, 2021 Update

As a result of improving travel conditions in many of our destinations, Monograms is happy to announce that we’re resuming international operation to select destinations for June travel.

And given that many destinations continue to have restricted access, select departures from June 1-15, 2021 will be suspended. Monogram’s guest service team will be in contact with guests affected to review options for future travel.

Among those options, Monograms is allowing guests with bookings on any suspended travel dates to move dates easily and without incurring cancellation fees, land or airline penalties*.

You are free to move your booking on any suspended trip to any Globus family of brands (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) vacation for any destination. If you are not ready to choose your new vacation, the full value paid to us will be provided via a Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future departure through 2022, and is transferrable.

To make the transition easier, this program includes an additional bonus credit. This bonus credit of up to $200 per person will be in addition to your Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future travel through 2022:

  • Bonus credit of $200 for Avalon Waterways
  • Bonus credit of $100 for Globus
  • Bonus credit of $50 for Cosmos, Escapes by Globus & Monograms

To decline this offer and cancel, those on vacations that have been suspended with departures June 1-15, 2021 must advise us by May 5, 2021**.

And for added flexibility for future travel plans, we’re also offering a Peace of Mind Travel Plan, allowing you to move your 2021 or 2022 booking to any other date, departure or brand up until your final payment date. Click here for details.

*Peace of Mind Travel Plan offer valid for suspended departures through June 15, 2021. Refund in the form of a Letter of Credit, redeemable for travel departing by December 31, 2022. The new booking bonus will be in addition to the Letter of Credit amount. Letters of Credit not redeemable for cash and bonus amount not transferrable. Only one booking bonus per person can be applied per reservation. Suspended departures through June 15 may retain past promotional offers if rebooked by May, 5, 2021. Changes in airfare may apply, and the new booking is subject to any increase in vacation price for 2021 and 2022 travel. Offer may be withdrawn at any time and other restrictions may apply.

**Cancellation refund for suspended departures June 1-15, 2021 follow our trip cancellation procedure, including refund to the form of payment made of monies paid to the Globus family of brands equal to the amount paid on your original booking. Suspended departures June 1-15, 2021 must be advised by May 5, 2021 to receive a refund. Refunds may take up to 6 weeks for processing.

Cancellations for tours that have not been suspended follow our regular trip cancellation policy. Deposits remain non-refundable and applicable final payment dates still apply. Applicable price of the new tour/cruise/package applies. Air penalties and changes in airfare may apply. May be withdrawn any time. Refer to Terms & Conditions for details.

Travel Update (as of April 12, 2021)

Due to improvements in access and health & safety conditions, Monograms is resuming international travel to select destinations.

For many international destinations, travel restrictions are currently still in effect. As a result, Monograms is voluntarily and temporarily pausing operations for those affected international destinations through June 15, 2021.

Our guest services team is in contact with guests affected by this suspension in order to adjust their plans for future travel.

FOR UPCOMING TRAVEL (Suspended Departures through June 15, 2021)

With the temporary suspension of operations, Monograms is offering the option to move travel dates for suspended departures June 1-15, 2021 as follows:

  • Affected guests can move their vacation to any other itinerary, destination, brand (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) or date in 2021 or 2022 without penalty and with an additional re-booking credit*. To expedite the process and ensure guests have adequate time to adjust travel plans without worry, we have automatically assigned this booking protection in the form of a Letter of Credit to all guests with upcoming departures.
  • Guests can decline this offer and cancel outright if we are notified by May 5, 2021*. After that date, the Letter of Credit is the only option.

And for added flexibility for future travel plans, we’re also offering a Peace of Mind Travel Plan, allowing movement of future 2021 and 2022 bookings to any other date, departure or brand up until your final payment date. Click here for details.

We understand this is a unique time in the world of travel, but are committed to ensuring our guests and their travel advisors manage through this period with the right options, adequate time, and high levels of attention and consideration. As we do our best to help each and every one of our guests, both with current and pending travel plans, we greatly appreciate your confidence and loyalty.

Of course, we continue to monitor this situation closely and carefully to determine if additional modifications and updates are needed, always with safety and guest well-being in mind.
