Our Travel Protection Plan coverage has just been improved! In addition to the standard coverages outlined on this page we have revised the CIE Tours Trip Cancellation Waiver to allow you to cancel for any reason, up to 3 days prior to departure. The Travel Protection Plan may only be purchased with the initial trip deposit and the plan payment is non-refundable.

CIE Tours trip cancellation waiver benefit*

When you purchase the CIE Tours Travel Protection Plan at time of initial trip deposit, you also qualify for the CIE Tours Trip Cancellation Waiver*. This allows you to cancel your CIE Tours travel arrangements up to 3 days before your scheduled departure for any reason not covered by the Travel Protection Plan. Under this benefit, CIE Tours will refund the amount of your cancellation penalty in CIE Tours travel certificates, with the balance of the refund made in cash or by credit card. See General Conditions for cancellation penalties.

CIE Tours Travel Certificates are non-refundable, valid for two years from date of issue (but no later than 26 months from the date your trip was canceled) and may not be redeemed for cash. The waiver does not cover the single room supplement charge that is applicable if one person cancels from a twin room, which then becomes a single room. CIE Tours requires written notice of cancellation during normal business hours. This benefit covers those arrangements purchased from CIE Tours.

*CIE Tours Trip Cancellation Waiver Benefit is not available for groups of 15 or more
