Q: Will I have to pay the full amount up front?
A: No. For most packages, we only require a per-person deposit to hold your booking. (The amount varies by package.) This deposit will be applied towards the cost of your package.
Your balance is due later. The due date will be shown when you book. For most packages, the due date is 75 days prior to departure. If you are booking close to the departure date (usually one that departs in less than 75 days), your final payment may be due within 72 hours.
Q: What are the payment methods?
A: We accept credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, American Express & Diners). Payments cannot be accepted over the phone.
To pay your deposit: the easiest, fastest and safest way is with your credit card done online.
To make your final payment: we will send you a link, or you will be able to pay from your private Members' Area.
Q: Why do I have to pay a non-refundable deposit?
A: In order to offer you our tours & packages at such fantastic prices, we make financial commitments to suppliers far in advance of each departure date. These commitments are covered by your deposits and cannot be refunded should you cancel your reservation. We strongly recommend that you purchase our very affordable travel insurance to protect your deposit in case you need to cancel or change your plans for covered reasons.
Q: Can I change or cancel my booking?
A: If you need to make a change to your booking, please contact us immediately. After your reservation has been confirmed, changes or cancellation do incur a fee.
Changes: Changes to an existing reservation will incur a minimum $50 per person fee, plus any additional fees from World Spree's suppliers. Additional fees may be imposed by airlines, cruise lines, or our vendors, and we will advise you of the total. Changes cannot be made after we receive your final payment. See our Terms & Conditions for more information.
Cancellations: All cancellations must be made in writing. Cancellation fees vary by package and when you cancel. See our Terms & Conditions for more information.
Q: Do I really need to buy travel insurance?
A: We strongly recommend the purchase of travel protection for all of our customers to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected. For your convenience, we offer a packaged travel protection plan at a competitive price that you can purchase with your reservation. Our basic plan can be purchased at any time prior to making your final payment. Please review the travel protection plan for more information on purchase requirements. For coverage for stable pre-existing conditions, the policy must be purchased within 7 days of making your deposit.
Q: Can I earn frequent flyer miles?
A: You may be able to earn frequent flyer points on some of our packages. Once you receive your ticket numbers, contact the airline directly to enter your frequent flyer numbers in your flight record. As you travel, verify with the check-in agent prior to boarding each flight on your package to be sure the frequent flyer information has been entered properly. Keep your boarding passes and passenger receipt, as these documents are proof that you have actually flown the miles you are asking to be credited to your frequent flyer account.
Some of the flights we use for our specially reduced packages may not qualify for miles; however, this is entirely at the discretion of the airline themselves.
Q: How many bags can I bring?
Please note: internal flights within India all have a limit of 33 pounds.
Q: Can I bring my mobile phone on the trip?
A: You can buy a local prepaid SIM card to use on your unlocked phone. Data roaming for your smart phones could be expensive, so keep it off. It is best to pre-purchase a travel plan from your North American service provider. We expect to keep you so busy on your magical trip you may not have time to browse the internet.
Q: Can I travel with children?
A: Sure, though for the safety and security of our travelers, we do have some age restrictions. On most of our tours and packages, your traveling companions must be 6 or older at the time of travel. Some packages have different requirements. Travelers under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older.
Q: I don't want to pay the Single Supplement. Will you partner me with a roommate to avoid extra costs?
A: We do not promote a match-up service for single travellers; although if we have two people of the same gender who wish to share a room, we will provide the two individuals with each other's contact information so they can have a conversation and decide if they wish to share. If you are flexible with dates, we can look through our departures to see if there is already someone that wants to share.
