Globus’ tour operator and river cruise brands on Thursday suspended all trips across all destinations
through the end of April.
“We recognize that travelers are faced with a great deal of
uncertainty right now, and we are committed to helping them through this
situation with the right options, adequate time and high levels of attention
and consideration,” said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family
of brands. “We are doing our best to cater to each and every traveler and help
them feel confident in their decision to explore the world with us.”
For travelers affected by the suspension, the company has a
new “Peace of Mind” plan, which lets travelers booked on affected vacations
reschedule their vacations in 2020, 2021 or 2022, to any destination on any
brand without any cancellation fees. It will also give impacted guests a $200
credit toward their new booking.
Globus did not say how many bookings would be affected, but the
90-year-old privately held company is one of the world’s largest tour
operators, offering packaged tours, independent travel and river and small-ship
The company's brands are
Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways and Monograms.
