Rest easy

Rest easy

Book before 31 December 2021 and relax knowing you are covered under our new COVID-19 Assurance Policy.

At no additional cost to you, new bookings for travel during 2021-22 are now 100% refundable in the unfortunate event you are diagnosed with COVID-19 or unable to travel due to government-enforced lockdowns prior to your scheduled departure date.

How it works

How it works

To be eligible for our new COVID-19 Assurance Policy, you will be required to produce a positive COVID-19 PCR Test Certificate within 14 days, and up to 24 hours prior to your scheduled tour departure date.

In the unfortunate event you are prevented from travelling due to a sudden government-enforced lockdown, your booking will also be covered by our new COVID-19 Assurance Policy.

Travel companions registered under the same Back-Roads booking reference number will similarly receive a full refund or Back-Roads travel credit if they choose not to continue with their tour.

How your booking is protected

Unlimited changes & cancellation protection

Unlimited no fee changes & cancellation protection

Relax knowing you have unlimited penalty-free changes to your travel dates and choice of tour up to 60 days prior to departure.

Flight, tour or accommodation price differences may apply.
