To avoid cancellation fees, we recommend optional travel protection or Cancellation Waiver.

TRAVEL PROTECTION/CANCELLATION WAIVER Grueninger strongly recommends that travelers purchase a travel protection plan. Travel protection safeguards your travel investment, your belongings, and most importantly, you. Your travel protection plan should cover at a minimum, cancellation, curtailment, medical, emergency travel and personal accidents, and damage or loss to personal belongings. Travel protection with Cancel for Any Reason coverage is available and Grueninger recommends you research this coverage prior to purchasing travel protection.

Grueninger is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel protection plans. Grueninger cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured’s existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection, call the travel protection company directly.

Declining travel protection plan coverage could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. You also acknowledge that without this coverage, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs or expenses incurred. If a traveler chooses to travel without adequate travel protection, Grueninger will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, which would have been covered by adequate travel protection.

For trips that travel protection is not offered including charter flights and motorcoach day trips, Cancellation Waiver may be offered. This covers any cancellation fees incurred by changes or cancellation up to 48 hours prior to departure of air and/or ground components. It does not cover the Cancellation Waiver premium, non-refundable optional tours, one-way travel, or voluntary changes made to your plans that result in a price increase. The Cancellation Waiver may only be purchased at the time of reservation and deposit and is valid for new bookings only on selected trips per the trip page on ambassadair.com. If the Cancellation Waiver is desired, it must be purchased by each paying passenger on the reservation and each person sharing accommodations.

CHANGES Any changes you make regarding your reservation are subject to a per person change fee plus any applicable cancellation charges or increases in the package price.

ITINERARIES Grueninger continually strives to improve travel itineraries. If such improvements can be made, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute accommodations. Grueninger strives to operate trips as advertised, but if unforeseen circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we will make every effort to substitute accommodations, sightseeing or other inclusions with options of a similar standard and location whenever possible.

CANCELLATION BY GRUENINGER Grueninger reserves the right to cancel any trip at its sole discretion. In the unlikely event a trip is canceled by Grueninger and Grueninger is unable to reschedule, all funds collected from any traveler will be refunded in full. Money is refunded to the original payer.
