Reformation Tours shares your concerns about the coronavirus and travel safety. Our biggest priority is the health and well-being of our travelers and all tours have been postponed until at least June 2021. Although vaccines are available, it may take several months to be widely distributed. Click here to see when international travel will open in this country-by-country guide.
We are currently working on our tours for 2021 and 2022 and the new tour catalogue will be available very soon. We look forward to welcoming you on future trips. Here’s a link to the current situation in Europe.
Here is the refund plan:
Although many companies are only offering credit vouchers, we refunded as much cash as we possibly could. Some of our Passion Play travelers were issued credit vouchers (for the deposit only) due to the high cancellation penalties we were charged by some suppliers and the non-recoverable expenses. We have reduced our operating expenses to the minimum.
Insurance update on June 3: We have transferred insurance to new tour dates in 2021. Travelers on Oberammergau tours now have an insurance credit voucher valid for 2 years – which means your policies are still usable for tours in 2021 and 2022.
1st wave of refunds: Mailed on May 22/23, 2020
- Final payment
- Group air
- Pre / Post tour travel
- Single supplements
- Credit voucher for tours in 2021/2022 (based on cost of 1st and 2nd deposits)
- Oberammergau gift book
2nd wave of refunds: We will have cash flow to issue further refunds after travel has resumed and we can use supplier credits. Please note that we are 100% commission based, meaning that we have $0 tour income until a tour actually operates.
- Credit vouchers can be used towards any open tour in 2021 and 2022
- Credit vouchers on the RCC22 cruise are fully transferable
- Travelers can apply for a partial refund (less the administration fee). These refunds are not likely to be available until 2022, as we have to purchase the new Oberammergau tickets for 2022.
Are vaccines necessary to go on a tour?
We are constantly monitoring the rules and recommendations about travel, which are changing constantly. We will make sure that you are fully informed about the regulations that affect your tour. Vaccines and/or proof of a recent negative test may well be required before boarding your flight.
