Reservation & Payment:
Your place on this trip will be reserved after paying the Deposit Amount. You agree to pay the Total Trip Cost, which includes the Deposit Amount and the Final Payment amount by their respective Due Dates. With the exception of refunds allowed due to government imposed Covid-19 restrictions (see Cancellation Policy below), all payments are non-refundable, and you commit to make all future payments until the Total Trip Cost is paid in full.
Trip Minimums and Maximums:
Each trip has a specified minimum and maximum number of participants that can be found on the trip’s page on our website. If the minimum number of participants is not met within 60 days of the trip start date, we may need to cancel or reschedule the trip. Please do not purchase non-refundable airfare or incur other non-refundable costs until you have been informed by us that the minimum number of participants has been met.
All our trips are organized and priced based on single occupancy. If you’re traveling with a friend or relative and would prefer to save some money by sharing a room, please select a Shared Room option at checkout.
Occasionally, when we stay in private Chateaux properties that are older homes, some rooms might share a bathroom. You will always be informed of this beforehand and normally we will offer a price reduction to all those who agree to stay in rooms that share a bathroom.
Health & Fitness:
Our trips are available to anyone in good health and who has good mobility. On most trips, you’ll need to be able to walk approximately 3 miles per day, sometimes over uneven pathways, and climb stairs over the course of a day. If you are unable to do so, please notify us.
We strongly recommend that anyone traveling with us purchase Travel Insurance to protect you (and us) from unforeseen events that may prevent you from joining or completing the trip. (For more information about purchasing travel insurance, see our Travel Insurance page, or buy your own insurance from a trusted source).
Vaccinations and Other Health Tests:
Some countries require vaccinations and/or other health tests (e.g. negative PCR test) as a requirement for entering the country. We require everyone traveling with us to conform to the entry requirements of each country we visit. While it’s everyone’s right to decide whether or not they receive a vaccination or perform any other health-related procedure, the failure to or decision not to meet the entry requirements of a country will prohibit you from joining the trip and does not qualify as a travel restriction that is the basis for a refund. Travel Insurance, especially cancel for any reason insurance, is the only way you can be reimbursed in these situations.
Please review the CDC website for the recommendations and guidance they provide depending on which country you are joining us in. To help ensure your immunity, the CDC recommends that you get any vaccinations at least 1 month before you travel.
For the duration of the trip, you are expected to conduct yourself in a respectful and non-disruptive manner towards the other women on the trip, the trip leaders and guides, and anyone else we come in contact with during the trip. If, in the sole discretion of the GG2P trip leader, you are deemed to engage in abusive, disrespectful and/or disruptive behavior, you will be warned once that such behavior must cease. If, in the sole discretion of the GG2P trip leader, you continue the abusive, disrespectful and/or disruptive behavior, you may be removed from the trip and there will be no refund. If you are removed from the trip, you will be responsible for organizing and paying for all subsequent expenses related to your return home from the place of your removal.
Don’t forget your Passport! It’s the one item that’s tough to replace. Please be sure you have enough empty pages without stamps in your passport and that it is valid for 6 months after the date you return from your trip.
