    5. Insure Your FAM!
    Why take a chance if you have to CANCEL YOUR FAM FOR ANY REASON or if future unforeseen circumstances interferes with the successful completion of any fam you have paid to attend.

    FAMTrips.travel suggests the purchase of trip cancellation insurance. If you do not use a preferred insurance supplier of your own, we suggest the following link to TravelSafe Insurance: TravelSafe Insurance Info

    You will find the words “Get A Quote” in at least two places on this page, and it will take you to a short application page that you can fill out to get a quote. You will need to put in basic details of your trip including the date of your first deposit (OR full payment if this fam requires full payment at one time). We suggest that you click on the CLASSIC POLICY which provides more coverage, and also on the 2nd page, there is an option to Click on a box to say YES to the addition of the “Cancel For Any Reason Optional Rider.”
    This Cancel for Any Reason Rider/ Option will allow you to recover up to 75% cash back if you elect to cancel for any reason up to a week prior to the fam. You must purchase this type of insurance within 21 days of making your first payment on any fam trip for the Cancel for Any Reason Option to be available to you and you must click on the box to add it to your selected policy option.

    You may have a different company that you use for insurance, but PLEASE NOTE the suggested importance of a CANCEL FOR ANY REASON RIDER to be in effect for whatever policy you book. Normally all of our fams are non refundable from time of booking, however under new circumstances due to COVD 19 , we have revised fam cancellation penalties for 2020-2021. For All River Cruise and Yacht Charter Fams, the non refundable policy is still in effect from time of booking and full payment, based upon these fam cruises being non refundable from our supplier agreements. In the instance of AMA Waterways fams, agents may have the opportunity to purchase AMA Waterways “ worry free waiver” to move their sailing date forward if they purchase the waiver at the time of booking only . In the instance of Katarina Lines, agents will be offered the opportunity to have a future travel voucher to travel with a future Katarina Line fam or other Katarina sailing only. New Cancellation policy for LAND BASED ONLY FAMS is:

    From time of booking, until 150 days prior to departure date, penalty is 25% of full payment.
    From 150 days prior to departure until 120 days prior, penalty is 50%
    From 120 days prior to 90 days prior, penalty is 75%
    From 90 days prior to date of departure, penalty is 100%

    Based upon the understanding that Cruise and Land Tour suppliers have the right to offer travel credit for future travel with their companies if, due to unforeseen circumstances such as and including airport shutdowns, border closings, or restricted travel advisories, or if you elect cancel for any reason, it is the responsibility of the traveler/ travel agent to purchase the type of insurance you need to recover the most desirable type of refund. If you are not willing to accept future travel vouchers for a cancellation that may also come about due to no fault of FAMTrips.travel, then by your booking of insurance which offers a CANCEL FOR ANY REASON rider, you can recover up to 75% cash payment for any incurred losses. These policies require that a traveler book this coverage normally within 14-21 days of the date of your initial payment.
    Please be sure NOT to miss this DEADLINE to purchase this type of coverage.

    If you do not elect to purchase this type of coverage, and your trip is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances or for those described above, the supplier has the right to offer future travel credit in exchange for cash refund of payment. FAMTrips.travel will strive to rearrange new dates of travel that successfully meet your needs to move your travel program forward so that you can travel with a new group departure over new group dates or for you to be rebooked with individual travel opportunities with the suppliers who are hosting any fam.
