G Adventures extends suspension of operations

G Adventures has further suspended all departures until 30 June 2020 due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

The adventure travel company initially suspended tours up until 30 April, then moved its suspension to 31 May.

“We are not suspending tours beyond 30 June as we wish to keep the door open in the event the current situation evolves in a way that enables us to travel again,” G Adventures said in a statement.

“However, we do understand people may feel uncertain about travelling in the upcoming months, so we are offering travellers booked on tours departing up to 30 September 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 per cent travel credit for a future tour.”

The company said it would notify all travellers regarding tour suspensions and advising travellers with flight bookings to contact their insurance/airline for details on compensation.

Australian travellers and travel agents can call 1 300 796 618 for advice, or email experience@gadventures.com.

In the meantime, G Adventures is hosting virtual walking tours and travel moments, so you can keep exploring the world from the comfort and safety of your own home.
