The shows, attractions and meals listed on our itineraries are the ones for which we currently hold reservations. However, changes in the featured performers or availability of attractions, are changes over which we have no control. If changes occur, we will do our best to book shows/meals of comparable quality and to advise you of those changes when they happen.

We do require your e-mail address to send you the invoice, itinerary and if necessary, the insurance information. We will also periodically send out e-mail blasts about upcoming trips that need help for them to go. Your Vagabond Escort will ask for these on trips and if you’ve already given it to us, just pass it along to the next person.
We do our best to get you a refund however a lot depends on when the cancellation occurs. If you cancel 30 days or more from departure date, we'll refund all monies paid with the exception of the insurance policy; that is non-refundable. Once we make final payment, it depends on what we can get back from our vendors to determine your refund. With this being said, we can't always tell you what you’re going to be refunded as we may have to wait and hear from the vendors first. You may always find a friend to take your place and work out any payments with them on your own. On Multi-Day Trips we STRONGLY recommend purchasing the Travel Protection Plan associated with your specific trip. This would protect your money should you need to cancel for a medical reason. On Broadway Shows & Baseball Games, we have to pay for tickets about 90 days prior to departure so if you cancel you may incur a fee for the ticket if we can't re-sell your seat as they are non-refundable when we pay for them. If we can re-sell them or get money back from a broker we use, then we would refund what we can.
Our Drivers & Tour Escorts appreciate a tip for a job well done. We have envelopes that the Escort will pass out; one for the Escort & one for the Driver on each trip. We suggest $3 per customer for each on a one-day trip and $4 per customer per day on a multi-day trip. They work very hard to make sure you have an enjoyable, safe trip.
