Coronavirus Update (September 16)
YMT Vacations is happy to announce that we have resumed domestic operation. Select international departures have resumed as countries begin to open their borders. We will continue to review all departures on a case-by-case basis, monitoring travel restrictions and government advisories, as the travel landscape evolves. For 2022 departures and beyond, please check our website for availability.
Proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination is currently required for all tours. For details on our Health & Safety requirements, view our Travel Safe guidelines.
Should your trip be impacted and unable to operate, you will be contacted approximately 30-45 days prior to your tour's scheduled departure date.
If your tour is suspended, YMT will provide a Future Travel Credit (FTC) for 100% of your cruise, river cruise, land and optional tour payments. This credit may be used on any future YMT Vacation for two years from the date of issue.*
You may either rebook now and change your travel dates or destination to any trip without penalty**, or you may elect to hold your FTC until you are ready to book your vacation.
*If you purchased air through YMT we will provide a Future Travel Credit (FTC) for the cost of the airfare less the applicable airline penalties. For select Alaska Cruise departure dates the FTC may only be used on another YMT Vacations Holland America Cruise Line (HAL) Alaska cruise due to HAL policies. For select Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) departures the FTC may only be used on another YMT Vacations NCL cruise due to NCL policies.
**Deposits and final payments remain non-refundable. Cancellation penalties refer to applicable cancellation fees within final payment, provided in the form of a Future Travel Credit (FTC). Cancellation penalties exclude Oberammergau and all River Cruises. Air penalties and charges may apply. Your FTC is set to expire 2 years from date of issue. The final value will be less any credits you may receive directly from our vendors. Cruise tour date changes are based on Cruise line policies.
YMT continues to monitor the Travel Advisories published by the U.S. State Department in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
