TRAFALGAR'S GOLD SEAL ADDITIONAL PROTECTION COVERAGE FOR CANCELLATION AND RETURN FLIGHT SECURITY ONLY NZ$129 PER PERSON Most guided holiday companies are interested in their guests only after they reach their destination. But with Trafalgar, you get a great deal even before you leave home with our Gold Seal Additional Protection plan for only NZ129 per person (payable at the time of booking). Gold Seal Additional Protection includes:
PRE-PAID CANCELLATION OPTION Your deposit and/or payment to Trafalgar will be refunded should you cancel your guided holiday for any reason prior to departure from New Zealand. This cancellation option covers the land arrangements* made by Trafalgar only. The Cancellation Option Fee is not refundable for any reason.
ON YOUR HOLIDAY Should you or your travel companion leave at any time during the guided holiday for personal sickness reasons or be required to return to New Zealand due to injury, illness or death, you and your companion will be refunded NZ$40 per person per day for the unused portion of the itinerary (note that in some cases hotels require a one-night cancellation fee). A doctor’s certificate is required.
RETURN FLIGHT SECURITY If you or a member of your direct family in New Zealand should fall sick** while you are on your Trafalgar holiday, we will take care of the additional cost of tickets for your earlier or later return home in the same booking class of air travel on the first available flight, provided you hold round-trip tickets on Trafalgar’s recommended airline(s) booked through Trafalgar from New Zealand. Please note that travel agent fees and cancellation fees may apply. * Excludes all cruise portions, holidays with internal flights, train travel and optional extensions ** Medical certificates as proof of all illness claims must be supplied.

We are part of a joint initiative by The Travel Corporation family of brands called TreadRight; a not for profit foundation working to ensure that the destinations we explore remain vibrant for future generations. TreadRight is The Travel Corporation's hub for all corporate social responsibility efforts, and manages a longstanding grants program that benefits sustainable tourism projects.
