Frequently Asked Questions

We know you’re excited about heading to Europe (we are too!). After running over 100 successful trips in North America in 2020 and 2021, we’ve received glowing feedback from our guests and learned a lot about traveling during COVID. Let us answer some of your questions to make it easy to plan for your European dream trip.

Is my Trek Travel trip guaranteed to run?

We will guarantee our European trips on a case by case basis as soon as we have clear information about a country’s travel restrictions. Trip dates will be marked guaranteed on our website. A trip will not be guaranteed until we can ensure a great experience on the trip. The latest we will guarantee our European trips is 30 days prior to departure. We review trips daily.

When will you charge my final balance?

We will not charge your final balance until your trip is guaranteed. For European trips guaranteed more than 60 days prior to departure, we will charge the final balance at 60 days prior to departure. For European trips guaranteed fewer than 60 days before departure, final balance will be charged 24 hours after we guarantee the trip. If you are booked in North America on a trip starting after July 1, 2021, your final balance is due at 90 days before departure.

How do I know the restrictions in my trip destination?

We will send guests country-specific COVID information 45 days before departure, outlining all policies and travel details. This includes information on testing, entry and exit requirements, itinerary updates, additional paperwork or documentation required, etc.

What happens if Europe reinstates a lockdown before my trip?

The safety of our guests and staff is our highest priority, and we will work with you on alternate travel plans if we are unable to run a scheduled trip in Europe. Rest assured, if we need to cancel one of our trips, 100% of your payment can be transferred to another trip.

What’s it like on the ground in Europe? Will my experience still be great?

We are only going to run trips in regions where we can provide the experience of a lifetime, complete with the delectable meals, premier accommodations, and unforgettable experiences our trips are known for. We are consistently in contact with guides and partners in Europe to ensure that stores, restaurants, and other cultural centers are open in the regions we run trips.

Are the guides vaccinated?

100% of our North American guides are vaccinated, and our European guides are being vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.

How am I going to get a COVID test before flying home?

Your guides will arrange a time and place to get a test (if required) during the final days of your trip. Please note the associated cost of the test is not included in your trip price. If you are continuing your travels in Europe after your Trek Travel trip, you will be responsible for finding your own testing location.

More questions?

We will be hosting a virtual information session on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 5:00PM CT / 6:00PM ET to share more information and answer questions you may have! Learn more.
