Deposit and Final Payment
To reserve a Cosmos tour, a non-refundable deposit is required within 7 days of booking. The remaining balance is due 45 days prior to the departure date.
|Deposit Amount||Final Payment Due Date|
|All Cosmos Tours||$250 per person||45 days prior to departure|
Note: Due to the inclusion of special features, a slightly higher deposit may apply for Cosmos cruise tours and train tours; please call your Vacations To Go travel counselor for details.
Cosmos accepts MasterCard, Visa, or American Express.
If final payment is not received 45 days prior to the departure date, Cosmos reserves the right to cancel the reservation and assess any cancellation fees that apply.
Cancellation and Refunds
Cancellation and refund policies vary, with penalties increasing as the departure date approaches. If a cancellation occurs, Cosmos will assess the following penalties:
|Days Prior to Departure||Cancellation Charge|
|45+ days prior to departure||Deposit|
|45-22 days prior to departure||20% of tour cost|
|21-8 days prior to departure||30% of tour cost|
|7-1 days prior to departure||50% of tour cost|
|Day of departure and later||No refund|
Cancellation charges also apply to additional accommodations reserved prior to and after the tour.
If flight changes are requested after the deposit has been received or if flights are canceled after tickets are issued, revision fees or airline cancellation charges will be applicable. If an air-inclusive tour is canceled after air tickets have been issued, refund will be processed after return of air tickets.
If Cosmos cancels a tour, they will re-book passengers on the same tour with a different departure date or a similar tour; if Cosmos has confirmed flights on the canceled tour, they will confirm flights for the alternate tour. All re-bookings are subject to availability.
If the alternate tour is not acceptable, Cosmos will refund all monies paid to Cosmos; there is no additional liability. Cosmos cannot assume responsibility for any additional costs or any fees relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of air tickets or other travel arrangements not made through Cosmos.
A handling fee of $30 per transaction will be charged for any alteration or revision made to a reservation. A change of tour date or tour itinerary within 45 days of commencement of services will be treated as a cancellation and new booking; regular cancellation fees apply.
Timetables and rates are subject to change, and exceptions may apply for holiday departures; please confirm payment and cancellation policies with your Vacations To Go travel counselor at time of booking. Deposit, payment and cancellation terms may differ for group bookings.
Purchase of travel insurance may reduce or eliminate the cancellation and interruption fees outlined above. For more information please call your Vacations To Go tour counselor.
