I want to book a holiday, but I am concerned about COVID-19

RouteTrip USA are working closely with our travel partners to relax some of our usual contract terms. If you book your holiday with us between now and 30th April 2020 for travel up to and including 30th November 2020 you will, if required be able to rebook your trip to either the same or alternative US destination up to 60 days prior to departure. In such cases we will not charge any additional administration fees.

The new holiday dates must be within 12 months of your original dates and the cost of your trip may be different depending on seasonal demand in which case we may need to increase or decrease the cost of your trip accordingly.

What happens if the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises against all but essential travel to the USA?

If you are due to travel imminently, we will contact you to discuss your options. These include postponing your trip or choosing an alternative USA destination if practical. If your trip is more than 6 weeks away, we will be in contact nearer the time to discuss your options.
