Stress Free Booking

Book now > Pay Later with a $0 deposit on international trips

With positive news of COVID-19 vaccines rolling out in some countries now, we’re feeling more confident that a 'Covid normal' situation will return, likely by late 2021.

While borders are gradually opening, we understand that there is still uncertainty but there's one thing we are sure about, international travel will go gangbusters when restrictions are lifted.

Our Stress Free Booking policy is designed to make it a whole lot easier for you to get back out into the world's great ranges and beyond. Book your next overseas trip now with our $0 deposit (you'll only pay your deposit once we know we can operate your trip), and rest easy knowing our flexible cancellation terms will protect your money and allow your adventure plans to be easily rebooked if restrictions return.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FLIGHT BOOKINGS: Check the terms and conditions of any airline bookings that you are making very carefully. We will not be responsible for airline schedule changes, cancellations or fare increases should your tour not proceed. 

*A government travel restriction is official government advice or restrictions associated with the pandemic in respect of border restrictions or closures and quarantine requirements. The restriction or closure must be active during the scheduled departure date of your trip. If there are restrictions or closures in place with no prescribed end date the restriction will be deemed to impact your departure if it is still in place 60 days prior to the departure date. 
**Some trips will require the payment of non-refundable costs at the time of booking which will be advised at that time if applicable to your booking. These non-refundable costs are excluded from the offer and may be forfeited in the event of cancellation for any reason including government restrictions.

  • The full booking terms and conditions that you agreed to upon registering online under the $0 deposit offer, will come into effect once you have made a payment.
  • If you are the holder of a World Expeditions Travel Group Travel Credit Voucher as a result of a trip previously announced inoperable due to the COVID19 pandemic, the original booking terms of your previous inoperable trip and the Travel Credit Voucher terms will override any other conditions.

Should you prefer to guarantee your place at the time of booking, the regular deposit outlined in the trip notes is payable.
