Book your trip risk-free
Traveling in these strange times can cause some booking anxiety.
The Canoe Trip has you covered.
At Travelbase we will fully commit to trips with corona-proof destinations in 2021, that even in the case in a flare-up of the virus we can safely organize the trips. Last summer, travel advises changed from code orange to red and back to yellow and green. Despite this, The Canoe Trip has continued from July 1, 2020 to September 15, 2020. Therefore we expect that in the summer of 2021, if travel restrictions still apply, this will not be a reason for not traveling to Sweden.
Since the beginning of November we offered a free Superflex Insurance to take away all your last doubts, with this insurance you could cancel your trip without any reason until April 1, 2021. Because the uncertainty lasted longer than we had hoped, we have been offering the extended Superflex Insurance for free since January 27, 2021. With this extended insurance you can even cancel for free up to 30 days before departure, without giving any reason!
Included in our insurance:
- 100% cash back, within 5 days on you bank account.
- Cancelling without any reason according to the conditions of the Superflex Cancellation Insurance.
- The possibility to change your travel date for free
- Expandable with our general cancellation insurance if you want to cancel within 30 days before departure.
5 reasons why you should go on The Canoe Trip in 2021
Scandinavia: the last piece of wilderness in Europe
You may desire to travel to the other side of the world again, to the most unique places on earth. In these corona times you can see Scandinavia as the perfect & ecological alternative for your long awaited journey into the wild.
Into the wild
A canoe trip is by definition corona-proof: you go into the wild and will not meet any people. The social distancing can hardly be greater than on a Swedish lake.
Sweden is corona-proof
Sweden was the outsider in Europe in the beginning of the Corona crisis, but chose for a mild lockdown after all to avoid major flare-ups. This approach is likely to have a positive effect on the immunity. Moreover, the infection rate in the Swedish areas where The Canoe Trip will take place is a much lower than many other countries in Europe.
Superflex Cancellation Insurance
We understand that, despite all these reasons, you still have doubts & booking anxiety. It is still so far away, and who knows what else will happen! To take away this last glimmer of doubt, we offer our Superflex Cancellation Insurance for free: this gives you the option to cancel until 30 days before departure for free without giving any reason, and to get your money refunded within 5 days. If you booked before 27/01 you can cancel until 1 April, 2021 for free without any reason.
Always covered with Amlin
Travelbase is also covered by a solvency insurance policy of Amlin Insurances: as a consumer you are covered by this insurance fund, even if we can no longer keep our promises and have to close the books.
