DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?
Travel insurance can minimize the considerable financial risks of traveling: accidents, illness, missed flights, canceled tours, lost baggage, theft, terrorism, travel-company bankruptcies, emergency evacuation, and getting your body home if you die. Each traveler’s potential loss varies, depending on how much of your trip is prepaid, the refundability of the air ticket you purchased, your state of health, the value of your luggage, where you’re traveling, the financial health of your tour company and airline, and what coverage you already have (through your medical insurance, homeowners or renters insurance, and/or credit card).
For some travelers, insurance is a good deal; for others, it’s not. What are the chances you’ll need it? How willing are you to take risks? How much is peace of mind worth to you? Take these considerations into account, understand your options, and make an informed decision for your trip. - Rick Steves

DO I NEED TO BE RICH TO TRAVEL?
Clearly- all travelers are nowhere near rich! Please stop assuming that you need a million dollars in the bank to travel. There are MANY ways to save at ANY pay scale to be able to travel. Instead of stopping at Starbucks (no offense to Starbucks) every day- make your coffee at home and use that five dollars everyday to put away towards your travel fund, and in a month you will have $150... a year $1,800. HELLLOOOO!!

HOW DO I DEAL WITH JET-LAG?
Sleep on the plane! Also, once you get to your destination, if it is dark and everyone is sleeping- go to sleep (if you can't- a nice natural sleeping aid by the name of Melatonin*, does wonders!). If it's morning when you arrive and it would normally be night from your departure-stay awake. Simple.
*Consult with your doctor before taking anything.
I'M A WOMAN, I'M AFRAID TO TRAVEL ALONE. HOW DO YOU DO IT?
Being a girl shouldn't detour you from traveling solo. Actually, solo travel is one of the most liberating things you can do. You are on YOUR TIME and WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. If you want to sleep in til 2pm- DO IT! If you want to spend 12 hours at a museum- DO IT! The world is not as scary as people think it is. As long as you have common sense, and don't go doing crazy things you wouldn't normally do in your hometown- YOU WILL BE FINE! NO FEAR! We challenge you to go on your next trip ah-lone and we want you to tell us all about it!
WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE OF DISEASES YOU CAN GET FROM THOSE FOREIGN COUNTRIES?
There's always going to be something going around and all you can do is take preventative measures, so that you minimize your chances of catching anything while you travel. Do not let these viruses/diseases determine your future and your travel. Try living by the motto "If it's my time to go, then it's just my time, nothing I could ever do to stop it". Stop letting your fears hault you from seeing the beautiful world. :)

Please see the attached pdf above for our legal policy on booking with iTravel2Getaway® .
PAYPAL CREDIT? WHAT'S THAT?
It's financing to give you flexibility. We understand you want to travel but may not have the funds right this moment to do so. This is why PayPal Credit is right for you! The best time to pay is when it’s right for you. So, when you check out with PayPal and choose PayPal Credit, look for special financing offers like this one: No Payments + No Interest if paid in full in 6 months on purchases of $99 or more.
NOTE: With PayPal No Payments + No Interest offers, interest will be charged to your account from the posting date (which is usually within a few days of the purchase date) if the purchase balance is not paid in full within the duration of the offer. This offer is subject to credit approval. Only applicable for vacation planning services.
DOES ITRAVEL2GETAWAY OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
ALSO, WHAT ABOUT GROUP TRAVEL?
iTravel2Getaway® offers payment plans to everyone, traveling equal to or more than 3 months prior to departure.
There are a few plans that we offer for payment...
Pay in full at time of invoice
50% upfront and 50% due 60 days prior to travel or trip will be canceled for the individuals who did not pay their balances off with NO REFUND(unless traveler has purchased travel insurance). You will need to fill out a payment authorization form and this will incur additional fees per person on top of the balance due to it being an installment plan. The additional fees are as follows: $50 per person for trips $500 or less, $100 per person for vacations totaling $501 - $1,000 and $150 per person for all vacations over $1,000.
$500 per person deposit (or 25% of the trip, whichever is greater) and the balance will be automatically deducted from debit/credit card (you'll have to fill out a payment authorization form). This will incur additional fees per person on top of the balance to use this payment installment plan. You can choose to break up your payments either monthly or bi-weekly on a day of your choosing. The installment plan would divide all payments up either monthly or bi-weekly to be scheduled to be paid in full by 60 days prior to departure, or trip will be canceled for the individuals who did not pay their balances off with NO REFUND(unless traveler has purchased travel insurance). The additional fees are as follows: $50 per person for trips $500 or less, $100 per person for vacations totaling $501 - $1,000 and $150 per person for all vacations over $1,000.
PayPal Credit. This is a loan or credit card provided by PayPal. It pays your entire balances in full to iTravel2Getaway® and then the traveler can then pay PayPal as they wish, or however, PayPal sets up their payment schedules. We don't receive any information outside of "Your invoice has been paid in full by ______ using PayPal Credit". This is subject to credit approval from PayPal.
- iTravel2Getaway® can and will invoice each traveler in the group separately if required.
- Please note: it is better to pay all at once upfront or use PayPal Credit because to use a payment plan will incur additional fees. This is Non - Refundable and Non - Negotiable.
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
All travel is non-refundable if 24 hrs has passed since booking. All taxes, fees, payment plan payments, and group booking deposits are non-refundable.
