Gold Seal Protection
Trafalgar’s Gold Seal Protection (GSP) plan costs only NZ$129 per person. Your GSP plan is available only upon paying your deposit and cannot be added at a later date. GSP gives you additional peace of mind should your travel plans change, and includes:
GSP allows you to cancel your Trafalgar holiday for any reason without penalty prior to 30 days from your New Zealand departure date:
- • If no Force Majeure Event* has occurred when you cancel, the value of your Trafalgar Holiday Pre-payment** will be refunded; or
- • If a Force Majeure Event* does occur causing you to cancel, the Trafalgar 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 Trafalgar 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 trip or departure is more expensive than the FTC you are responsible for the difference in price; if the new trip 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 Trip
Should your holiday be interrupted and you leave at any time during the trip 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 NZ$90 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) Trafalgar 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 Trafalgar from New Zealand on Trafalgar’s recommended airline.
