What's new with Travel Protection Plus effective 1/11/24?

The Missed Connection coverage was doubled to $1,000 per person; the Trip Delay coverage was reduced to $1,000 per person (since 99% of 2023 claims were under $1,000); and there was a moderate price increase on some tiers (based on package price), from $0 - $10 per person.

Do all of the ALG Vacations® brands offer Travel Protection Plus?

No, Southwest Vacations does not. They offer their own Southwest Vacations’ Travel Protection with a few pre-departure benefit changes and a pricing model that is 7.5% of the overall trip cost. For full details, visit Southwest Vacations® Travel Protection page here.

How does the During Travel Protection Plan differ from Travel Protection Plus?

The nonrefundable During Travel Protection option provides the same benefits of the Travel Protection Plus post-departure plan. It does not include the pre-departure penalty waiver. This option can be added up to 2 days prior to departure and since it does not provide the full benefits of Travel Protection Plus, it has a lower price. This is a great option for last-minute type reservations that no longer qualify for the Travel Protection Plus option which must be added within 7 days after the initial deposit.

All brand-imposed revision fees are waived and are available for unlimited use so long as Travel Protection Plus remains on the reservation. Canceling or changing the vacation at any time before departure without costly revision fees does not include nonrefundable properties. Supplier-imposed fees such as airline/hotel revision penalties will be covered for the first revision instance. If used to cover supplier-imposed fees, Travel Protection Plus will need to be reapplied to the reservation at 75% of the original price in order to maintain the program benefits or the traveler is subject to any subsequent revision or cancellation fees. A lap child under the age of 2 who shares a seat with an adult is covered under the adult's policy.

 

Travel Protection Benefits are underwritten by Generali U.S. Branch, provided through Trip Mate, a Generali Global Assistance & Insurance Services brand, P.O. Box 527, Hazelwood, MO 63042, 1-866-389-5378. Non-insurance Services: are not insurance benefits.

1 Low deposits are valid on all scheduled air package bookings made 46+ days prior to departure with Travel Protection Plus Travel Credit option with Apple Vacations, Funjet Vacations, Travel Impressions, or Blue Sky Tours. Bulk-fare tickets must be paid in full in order to be reused or exchanged.

 

2 Advance cancellation time is based on airline's no-show policy. Some airlines have stricter no-show policies and you must cancel more than two hours in advance of scheduled departure. If you are cancelling a land-only reservation, you must cancel at least two hours prior to your hotel's check-in time.

 

3 Travel credits are valid for travel commencing within 395 days from the original departure date. Travel credits are nonrefundable, nontransferable, not redeemable for cash, and must be used for travel commencing by the expiration date. Travel credit will be issued in the names of the adult (18+) passengers on the original reservation. Travel credit must be applied to the same ALG Vacations® brand as the original booking.

 

4 The Price Guarantee: If the brand's price of the hotel goes down after the booking is made, simply contact ALG Vacations or your travel agent and we will adjust the reservation to the lower price. Lower price adjustments are not automatic and will be done only if requested through Customer Care at 800-558-3060 or your travel advisor. For land-only or scheduled air bookings, the Price Guarantee applies only to the hotel portion of the booking. For Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flight packages, the Price Guarantee applies to the air and hotel portion of the booking. The price adjustment must be made to the reservation while the lower rate is available through the brand the original reservation was made. The guarantee does not apply to competitors' pricing. Blackout, weekend, holiday, and peak season surcharges apply.

5The Hurricane Travel Credit applies for vacations departing June through November. While in destination, if the trip is interrupted for 24 hours or more due to a Category One or greater hurricane, you will receive a refund for unused or interrupted vacation nights plus a "Fresh Start" certificate for a future vacation. Fresh Start certificate amounts: $100 per adult and $50 per child for Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flights, and $25 per person for scheduled air vacations. Fresh Start certificates are nontransferable, are not redeemable for cash, and can be used on a vacation with the same brand as originally booked for travel any time (excluding holidays) for one year from the original departure date. A qualifying disruption occurs when your hotel requires you to be displaced from your room for 24 hours or more due to the result of a Category One or greater hurricane and does not apply to hurricane watches, warnings, or tropical storms. The Hurricane Travel Credit Plan applies to the nights you are displaced from your hotel if a comparable hotel of equal or greater hotel rating is not provided.
