Globus family of brands (GFOB) has extended its suspension of travel worldwide and its ‘Peace of Mind Travel Plan’ until 31 August 2020.
GFOB, which consists of Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways, initially suspended operations until 30 April, and then until 30 June.
Gai Tyrrell, managing director of GFOB across Australasia, said: “There is still uncertainty in travel with inconsistent plans for reopening regions and countries, as well as compromised air schedules and access to the world’s must-see sites.
“To add some certainty to this situation, we are giving control back to our travellers – and their travel agents – by being proactive and looking ahead through August.
“And, in doing that, we are giving them the right options, adequate time and high levels of attention and consideration to help them to reset and adjust their international holiday plans for a time when the world is ready for them.”
The Peace of Mind Travel Plan provides GFOB travellers booked on affected holidays the freedom to reschedule their trip in 2020, 2021 or 2022, to any destination, on any brand, without incurring cancellation fees.
The plan also offers travellers a bonus credit of up to $300 per person when they make their new plans.
“The world has changed, but our commitment to our guests’ safety, comfort and peace-of-mind remains steadfast,” Tyrrell said.
“To that end, we have used this temporary pause to establish a worldwide assurance team, developing enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures to ensure the health – and happiness – of those who entrust their holidays with us. We will share more details about our plans soon.”
