Revisions to Our Cancellation and Payment Policies for 2020

Posted: Wednesday, April 15, 2020

We understand that trying to make a decision about travel right now can be difficult and we want to make it easier.  


We have cancelled all trips through August 14, 2020. We have reached out to all of our travelers through mid-August. If you missed an email or call from us, please contact: or 877-439-4042 ext. 0.

We have extended the final payment deadline for all 2020 trips. Final payment for all 2020 trips is due 45 days prior to departure for domestic trips and 60 days prior to departure for international trips (extended from 90 days for domestic & 120 days international trips).

What if I cancel my trip?  If you cancel prior to the final payment deadline, you can do so for a $50 cancellation fee OR choose to leave the full deposit as a credit on file for 3 years. If you cancel after the final payment deadline, payments are non-refundable. We recommend travel insurance to cover unforseen circumstances. We offer travel protection through Travelex Insurance Services and you can read about their coronavirus coverage update here.  

What if AGC cancels my trip?  We will confirm if a trip will be able to run or not prior to the final payment deadline. If AGC needs to cancel a trip after the final payment deadline, we will offer priority booking for the rescheduled trip, issue a travel credit equal to the amount paid towards the cancelled trip, plus an additional $300 to be used for future travel with us. 

Travel credits will be available for any new booking through the end of 2022, including towards a trip in 2023. There is no rush to rebook, so take your time to find the trip and the date that’s right for you! Travel credits can be transferred to multiple re-bookings but are not refundable at any time. If the rebooked trip is priced higher than the original trip, the traveler will be responsible for the difference. If the rebooked trip is lower than the original trip, the traveler will receive a travel credit for the difference with the same travel credit terms. Travelers may apply whatever discounts or promotions are available at the time of rebooking. 

You can also transfer travel credits to another woman for her to use on any new booking. Please call us if you would like to transfer part or all of a travel credit to someone else - and thank you in advance for spreading the love of adventure!

What about 2021? At this time, our normal cancellation policy is in place for 2021 trips. However, we understand that travel planning has become a bit more complicated these days! We want to make it as risk-free and easy as possible for you to plan your next adventure, so we will continue to evaluate the situation and consider extending these revised terms into 2021. We will notify our 2021 travelers, if we extend these revised terms and please continue to check back for updates. 

Please Note: All standard booking terms and conditons not explicitly addressed here remain in effect.
