Travel Protection

Looking for help?

As travel specialists with 90+ years of industry experience, we know all too well how travel plans can change at the very last moment. That’s why you should consider travel protection when planning your Tauck vacation, one of the best ways to ensure a delightful travel experience – from the moment you book your trip!

When you purchase one of Tauck’s Travel Protection plans, you can book your vacation with confidence, knowing that you have cancellation protection if your plans change, right up to departure! The cost varies for land journeys and cruises, but the plans offer outstanding benefits, including coverage for lost or delayed luggage, airfare and medical expenses as detailed. Refunds are based on your original method of payment and certain restrictions apply; ask for details upon booking or click on the links in each tour.

Does Tauck offer any kind of plan that protects my money if I cancel my trip?

Your vacation is an important investment – and to help you protect it, Tauck offers the Guest or Cruise and Event Protection plans, designed to protect your investment if you need to cancel your trip. The plans also include coverage while traveling as well as 24-hour worldwide emergency assistance services. Terms, conditions and exclusions apply; for more details about this protection, please visit Tauck’s Guest or Cruise and Event Protection information designated by the “Tauck Travel Protection” link for each itinerary of this website.

Will there be penalties if I cancel my tour?

Regardless of reason, cancellations result in costly charges from travel and hotel providers covering penalties and fees incurred by canceling confirmed bookings. Guests choosing not to purchase Tauck’s Guest or Cruise and Event Protection will incur these cancellation penalties. Penalties vary depending on destination, and whether it is a land, rail, or cruise journey.

When you purchase Tauck’s Guest or Cruise and Event Protection plan, you are covered for lost luggage, medical emergencies and more. For more information on how this protection can protect your travel investment, please visit Tauck’s Guest or Cruise and Event Protection designated by the “Tauck Travel Protection” link for each itinerary of this website.

As of July 1, 2017, for guests purchasing, the protection plans discussed on this page contain insurance benefits underwritten by the United States Fire Insurance Company. C&F and Crum & Forster are registered trademarks of United States Fire Insurance Company. The Crum & Forster group of companies is rated A (Excellent) by AM Best Company 2016. The plans may also contain a non-insurance Cancellation Waiver provided by Tauck as well as non-insurance Travel Assistance Services that are provided by On Call International. Coverages available may vary and not all coverage is available in all jurisdictions.
