How do I book a tour?
Select your itinerary and date and then click “Book Now.” Enter your traveler and select your optional excursions, rooming options, and whether you want trip protection. After you confirm and book, any entered voucher information will be applied to your order balance within two business days. You can also call us at 1-800-766-2645 and we can book your trip over the phone.
What can my voucher be used for?
Your voucher can be applied to the trip cost, optional excursions, and trip protection. Please note vouchers cannot be split between multiple travelers. If your voucher amount is more than the tour price, you will be refunded the difference less $1,000. If the difference is less than $1,000 the unused portion will be forfeited.
Do I need to make a payment at time of booking?
No immediate payment is required to reserve your spot on a trip. Once you have confirmed your trip our team will apply any issued voucher to your balance within two business days and then reach out to discuss your payment options.
What if my voucher amount is less than the trip cost?
If your trip departs in more than 60 days, we highly recommend you sign up for our interest-free automatic payment plan. If your trip is within 60 days, you will need to pay the remaining difference in full. Once we have applied your voucher our team will reach out to you for payment or to enroll you on the payment plan.
Can I sign up if I don’t have an EF Future Travel Voucher?
