Have you ever found yourself spending too much time deciphering the complexities of travel insurance plans? We get it. You’d rather be finding the perfect vacation rental or crafting your dream trip itinerary. That’s why DHPL Travels is here to help! If you use Travelocity to book your travels, we’ll guide you through their travel protection plans, what they cover, and what to do if you need to cancel your trip.
What The Travelocity Vacation Waiver Covers
Travelocity’s Vacation Waiver offers you the freedom to cancel or modify your trip for any reason. The best part? Travelocity won’t charge you any cancellation fees, and most hotels won’t either if you cancel three or more days in advance. If you change your mind about your flight, you can cancel it for free within 24 hours of booking. With the Vacation Waiver, not only will you receive a full refund for any cancellation fees, but you’ll also get a credit for the price of your cancelled ticket. Additionally, if your flight gets cancelled by the airline, Travelocity will work with you to find the next available flight and a hotel that suits your budget.
When You’re Protected
With Travelocity’s comprehensive Vacation Waiver, you’re covered until the start of your flight. You have the flexibility to cancel your trip for any reason prior to the scheduled start time, which is the original departure time of your flight or the check-in time of your hotel. If you decide to cancel, you may receive a credit for future travel. Keep in mind, though, that if the airfare is higher when you rebook, you will be responsible for covering the price difference. Remember, you can only change or cancel your trip once before it’s due to start. In summary, if you make changes to your trip before it begins, Travelocity will cover all the cancellation fees imposed by the car rental company, hotel, and airline.
When to Purchase
If the flexibility of the Travelocity Vacation Waiver sounds appealing, we recommend purchasing it when planning your next trip. Once you’ve purchased it, make sure to print the voucher and keep it on hand for reference. You can also find your waiver information on your online account after your booking is confirmed, eliminating the need for manual redemption. Please note that the Vacation Waiver can only be used once and must be redeemed by the person named on it. It holds no cash value. Also, be sure to purchase the Travelocity Vacation Waiver during the booking process because you won’t be able to add it later.
DHPL Travels wants to give you a clear overview of what Travelocity’s Vacation Waiver covers:
- No cancellation fees right up to the start of your flight (remember to cancel your hotels at least three days in advance to avoid fees there too).
- Free cancellation of your flight within 24 hours of booking.
- Rebooking assistance if your flight is canceled by the airline.
However, there are a few things that the Vacation Waiver does not cover:
- Any change or cancellation fees that occur after your trip starts (unless your flight is canceled by the airline).
- Multiple changes – you can only modify your trip once.
- Cash refunds for your flight – you will receive a credit.
Remember, when it comes to your travel plans, DHPL Travels has your back! Let us help you make informed decisions and protect your trip with Travelocity’s Vacation Waiver.
