CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

For trips starting after September 30, 2022, travelers will no longer be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Please keep in mind some countries where we operate require the vaccine.

Please note some countries have begin to put an expiration date of 270 days on vaccines, requiring boosters. Country requirements may change rapidly before your departure, so if you want to ensure you can enter a country, plan to get a booster at least two weeks before your trip.


Under30Experiences follows COVID guidelines under the direction of local government in terms of protocols to include but not limited to social distancing, masks, hand washing, temperature checks, outdoor seating, etc.

If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 on a trip, you will be asked to test at your own expense. If results are positive, you must self-isolate away from the group immediately, and you are responsible for any additional charges including paying for your own room and transportation. Please keep a copy of your positive test result, and invoices for additional expenses incurred to submit to your travel insurance company.

If a traveler tests positive, they will be required to follow local authorities' quarantine requirements.


Country Entry Requirements

Each country has different entry requirements due to COVID-19. When booking your flight, please note that you are also responsible for any entry requirements in countries where you have a layover, even if you are not exiting the airport.

COVID-19 Cancellation Policy

When a force majeure event, which occurs outside the reasonable control of either party, results in the suspension of your trip, we will suffer unrecoverable losses. This includes, but is not limited to, natural disasters, political upsets, and pandemics.

We will always do our very best to manage all transfers and cancellations in response to a force majeure event, and want to ensure that you receive an amazing travel experience with us in the future. We are a very small company, and when you book a trip with us, the money we received for your trip goes directly to vendors abroad.  When we have an expected trip suspension, these vendors issue us some credit, if any at all, for lost reservations.  

Due to this, we are unable to issue refunds.  In the event of a trip suspension, we will offer our travelers a 100% credit of the price they paid valid for use towards any of our trips anywhere in the world.  

These credits never expire, there are no blackout dates, fees, and are giftable to a friend or family member. We appreciate your flexibility during an unprecedented global event, which ensures that our humble community receives incredible trips with us in the future.

Travel Insurance

Most travel insurance policies will not cover COVID-19 related cancellations due to fear of COVID.

If you're concerned with COVID-19, we recommend purchasing travel insurance that includes a Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) policy. Weigh your insurance options here.

Please note that many CFAR policies have stipulations regarding the time frame in which the insurance policy is purchased and the date your trip is initially booked.

For cancelations and changes if you test positive for COVID-19 abroad, our recommended travel insurance vendor is World Nomads. Please note to file a claim related to COVID-19, at home tests, without medical supervision are not accepted.
