MONTREAL - G Adventures, which previously extended its suspension period until 31 May 2020, has further suspended all tours departing up to and including 30 June 2020.

All travellers booked and fully paid on a tour departing up to 30 June 2020 will receive a 110% travel credit on all booked tour services, including pre- and post-night accommodation and transfers, to be used on any tour departing up to two years from the end of the month of their tour’s suspension.

The company said, “The health and safety of our travellers and staff is our main priority and this is an essential measure to protect our travellers and our people at this time.”

G Adventures has not suspended tours beyond June 30 as “we still believe travel can be a force for good and as such we are choosing to leave the door open to the current [COVID-19}  situation changing in a way that means people can travel again”.

It is, however, offering clients booked on tours departing up to 30 Sept. 2020 the option to transfer their booking to a future departure date for the same price. Alternatively, they can pay in full and receive a 110% travel credit for a future tour.

All impacted guests are being notified regarding tour suspensions. Those with flight bookings are being asked to contact their insurance or air providers for details on compensation.
