Tour America is working tirelessly with all our partners and suppliers to secure refunds for our customers in relation to travel which has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis.
Due to the unprecedented number of bookings affected, we are experiencing delays in supplier responses.
It is important to note, we can only supply refunds on bookings where the supplier/airline has refunded Tour America. There will be a service charge on all bookings to cover costs incurred during the booking and subsequent cancellation of your reservation.
We assure you we are working hard to resolve any delays in this process, and ask you to bear with us during this time. We will process your refunds at the earliest possible date, and trust you will understand the timeline will be dictated not by us, but by our partners and suppliers. We anticipate this may be up to 12 weeks.
We appreciate all your kind words and comments over the past number of weeks. It has been, and remains a very difficult time for our staff, but they are fully committed to assisting every customer affected by the current situation.
We hope you all stay safe and well.
