YOUR MONOGRAMS HOLIDAY CAN BE MOVED WITHOUT INCURRING CANCELLATION FEES FOR TRAVEL

October 19, 2020

In response to elevated travel restrictions and government advisements, we have made the thoughtful decision to suspend operations through to January 31, 2021. 

Given these circumstances, Monograms has introduced an unprecedented program designed to give our travellers options and peace-of-mind when considering their travel plans—the Peace of Mind Travel Plan.

Through this plan, Monograms is now allowing all currently booked travellers through January 31, 2021 to move travel dates easily and without incurring cancellation fees*. 

You are free to move your booking to any Globus family of brands (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) holiday for any destination. If you are not ready to choose your new holiday, the full value paid to us will be provided via a Future Booking Credit, redeemable for any future departure through to 2022, and is transferrable.

To make the transition easier, this Plan includes an additional bonus credit. This bonus credit of up to $300 per person will be in addition to your Future Booking Credit, redeemable for any future travel through 2022:

  • Bonus credit of $300 for Avalon Waterways
  • Bonus credit of $150 for Globus
  • Bonus credit of $80 for Cosmos, Escapes by Globus & Monograms

To opt out of this Peace of Mind Plan and to cancel, those with departures January 1-31, 2021 must advise us by November 9, 2020**.

And for new 2021 bookings, we’re also offering a Peace of Mind Travel Plan. Click here for details:

TRAVEL UPDATE (AS OF OCTOBER 19, 2020)

In response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, the elevated travel restrictions, government advisements, and most importantly, to ensure the safety of each one of our guests, Monograms is voluntarily and temporarily pausing global operations for travel through to January 31, 2021.

Our guest services team is in contact with guests affected by this suspension in order to adjust their plans for future travel.

FOR UPCOMING TRAVEL (2021 Departures through to January 31)

With the temporary suspension of operations, Monograms is offering options to move travel dates or cancel bookings for travel through to January 31, 2021 as follows:

  • Affected guests can move their holiday to any other itinerary, destination, brand (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) or date in 2021 or 2022 without penalty and with an additional re-booking credit through our Peace of Mind Travel Plan*. To expedite the process and ensure guests have adequate time to adjust travel plans without worry, we have automatically assigned this booking protection in the form of a Future Booking Credit to all guests with upcoming departures.
  • Guests can opt out of the Peace of Mind Plan via our cancelled holiday policy if we are notified by November 9, 2020*.  After that date, the Peace of Mind Travel Plan is the only option.

We understand this is a time of hesitation and concern in the world of travel, but are committed to ensuring our guests and their travel advisors manage through this period with the right options, adequate time, and high levels of attention and consideration. As we do our best to help each and every one of our guests, both with current and pending travel plans, we greatly appreciate your confidence and loyalty.

Of course we continue to monitor this situation closely and carefully to determine if additional modifications and updates are needed, always with safety and guest well-being in mind.

For questions, updates or booking inquiries, contact 0800 000 883. Please note that we are experiencing high call volumes, but will do our best to respond in a timely manner. If you have booked through a Travel Agent, they may have service or cancellation fees which will apply. Please contact your Travel Agent for details.
