GOLD SEAL PROTECTION PLANS
Insight Vacation’s Gold Seal Protection (GSP) plan costs only NZD129 per person. Your GSP plan is available only upon paying your deposit and cannot be added at a later date. You can purchase your plan online when you checkout or with one of our Travel Experts. GSP gives you additional peace of mind should your travel plans change, and includes:
Pre-Departure Cancellation: GSP allows you to cancel your Insight Vacation holiday for any reason without penalty prior to 30 days from the start date of your tour:
If no Force Majeure Event* has occurred when you cancel, the value of your Insight Vacation Holiday Pre-payment** will be refunded; or
If a Force Majeure Event* has occurred causing you to cancel, the Insight Vacation Holiday Pre-payment** will be converted to a Future Travel Credit (FTC) of the same value. The FTC may be redeemed against the cost of a new holiday provided by Insight Vacation or one of our Travel Corporation sister brands, departing at any time within 24 months of your cancellation but is not redeemable for cash. If the new tour or departure is more expensive than the FTC you are responsible for the difference in price; if the new tour or departure is less expensive than the FTC, a new FTC will be issued for the difference.
Airline travel costs and any related cancellation or rebooking costs are not covered by the Gold Seal Protection Plan.
Please note that the Gold Seal Protection plan cost is not refundable for any reason. Travel Agent fees and cancellation costs may apply.
During Your tour: Should your holiday be interrupted and you leave at any time during the tour due to personal illness or injury; or be required to return to New Zealand because of the serious injury, illness or death of an immediate family member^:
(a) you will be refunded NZD90 per person/ per day for the unused portion of the holiday. Please note that in some cases hotels require a 1-night cancellation fee.
(b) Insight Vacation will pay the additional cost of airline travel for earlier or later return to New Zealand in the same class of air travel on the first available flight, provided the original return air tickets were booked through Insight Vacation from New Zealand on Insight Vacation’s recommended airline.
A medical certificate is required to qualify for this holiday interruption and return flight security provision.
