Globus brands extend travel suspension

The Globus Family of Brands (GFOB) has extedned its voluntary suspension of travel across all destinations.

GFOB initially announced it would suspend travel until 30 April but has since extended the date to 30 June 2020.

This applies for all brands under GFOB including Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways.

For travellers affected by the suspension, the company has extended its Peace of Mind plan, allowing travellers booked on affected holidays from now through to 30 June to reschedule their holiday in 2020, 2021 or 2022, to any destination, on any brand, without incurring cancellation fees.

The plan also offers travellers a credit of up to $300 per person, redeemable on future holidays.

GFOB has also announced a new policy offering travellers who have booked a Globus, Cosmos and Avalon Waterways holiday to see the Oberammergau Passion Play performances, which were scheduled to take place in 2020 and have been postponed until 2022, to be the first to reserve their spots for 2022 at the current price.

“These are unprecedented times, but we are committed to helping travellers through this situation,” Gai Tyrrell, managing director for Australasia at Globus, said.

“By extending our Peace of Mind plan, we hope to give travellers the flexibility and security they need to alleviate their immediate concerns about upcoming and future trips.

“Travelling is meant to be a joyful experience and we’ll continue to do our part to ensure it remains stress-free.”
