Coronavirus Update

Everyone worldwide is coping with the COVID-19 virus.  For reliable information about Coronavirus, stick to official sources like the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  We trust that you and your family are following the guidelines set forth to help slow down and eventually stop the spread of the virus so that we can all get back to normal. 

 

We are ready to travel..... But.... Europe is not ready for us....

Previously, we said that we would wait, as long as possible, to see if we would be able to conduct our tours to Europe this summer. 
Europe is slowly re-opening its borders to tourists for this summer and each country has their own rules and regulations regarding tourists.  Some have no restrictions, while others have a 14-day quarantine after arrival. (not possible for group tours)

Throughout the pandemic, we have kept all elements of out tours in place (local guides, tour buses, hotels and competition teams).  We have also been collecting a wait list of travelers interested in future tours.  Currently we have over 700 players and parents on this list wanting to join us when it is safe to travel in summer of 2022.

 

The European countries we are scheduled to visit have not completely lifted their restrictions and are fluctuating, week to week, between partially open and closed.  The conditions in Europe are improving but given the uncertain and everchanging conditions at this time we feel would not be able to provide a quality tour program for you.

 

Therefore, sadly, we will need to postpone our 2021 tours to Europe.  (2021 Italy tour and our 2021 London, Paris, Barcelona tour).

We know you have many questions.  First, our policy at Volleyball Tours is to assure you that you will not lose any of the monies received for your postponed tour.   

  1. You can transfer your 2021 tour payments to our 2022 tour and be assured that there will be no increase in tour price (normally the tour price increase $200-$400 each year).  You will be first accepted onto that tour.   Plus, you will be given a $100 bonus gift for being a loyal volleyball tour member.

  2. You can request to be cancelled from your tour and request a refund of monies received towards your tour.

 

We have contacted the Travelsafe Insurance company (the travel insurance company that was listed on our website). 
We asked them the question that many of our travelers have asked us. 

  1. “Given the fact that I am not traveling to Europe this summer… What are my options for the Travel Insurance that I purchase for this Summer”?

“So as long as there are no claims are filed on the policy the policy holder can apply the insurance onto future bookings” (i.e. the 2022 volleyball tour).  Travelsafe is allowing clients to change the date for 2 years out from the original departure date on their policy.

We know this is not the news that you wanted to hear; it is certainly not the news that we wanted to give.  We also know that you want to feel safe and have all attractions available and open to you when we are finally able to go to Europe. 

 

We expect the 2022 tours to be bursting at the seams with eager volleyball players and parents to once again be able to travel.  We hope to see you on one of our 2022 tours.  Stay safe, things are getting better, we are almost there.

Please let us know if you would like us to reserve your place on the 2022 tour, we will save your place on that tour before we add new members.

Thank you
