How is Mission Travel Tours protecting their travelers' health and safety during these unprecedented times?
The health and safety of our travelers and local teams have always been our first priority. As travel begins to reopen, we have implemented a new set of standards to ensure a confident travel experience for our clients, and a safe working environment for our local teams and hotel partners.
The easiest way to begin planning your group tour is to choose which Tour Category you want to go on. Fill out our reservation form and one of our Tour Destination Experts will contact within 2 business days. We are always here and ready to chat via our chat option. Or you can call us at 1-407-377-7912, and our offices are open on Mondays through Fridays from 9 – 5pm EST, and on Saturdays from 10 – 5pm EST
Our tour guides and in-country tour operators will assist in accessing proper medical care should that be required. Some health insurance policies DO NOT cover illness or injury overseas and we find it best to purchase travel insurance, so you are properly covered.
It depends, some tours will have the same guide the whole time depending on tour. Our tours that travel to different far away locations or countries will often times have different guides for that region.
We customize each trip to your needs and can always build in free time and give you opportunities to shop. Our ground team operators can be flexible to your request and we can even schedule in free days to rest and do whatever you desire.
Due to the size of baggage compartments in touring coaches, each passenger is restricted to ONE suitcase and ONE carry-on bag (in addition to your purse, camera case or video camera). A total dimension of the bag to be checked on the airplane is not to exceed 62 inches (length + width + height) and should not weigh more than 50 lbs. Carry-on luggage should not weigh more than 20 lbs and is not to exceed the following dimensions: 22'' length + 14'' width + 9'' depth. It must fit under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment. Be sure your luggage is clearly marked on the inside and outside. If you are traveling with a tour group, you must use the luggage tags provided along with your own.
Please Note: Due to recent changes in baggage allowance in the industry, we advise checking with your airlines before you depart to see if there has been a change in their regulations

This is designed to provide us information on your expectations and any special requests or requirements you may have.

(For example, if you are vegetarian, let us know if that means you do not eat meat and poultry but you do eat fish, only legumes, etc.) We then pass that information along to our local guides and restaurants so that you do not have to worry about it during the trip. If you have specific concerns or questions, please call us at 1-407-377-7912 or email us at email@example.com. We can accommodate most dietary requests, so please do not hesitate to let us know.

Travel protection gives travelers coverage for unforeseen circumstances, from a canceled flight to a serious illness—or in rare cases, even an act of terrorism or the financial default of a travel supplier. If an illness, accident, or other covered unforeseen circumstance forces a traveler to cancel or interrupt their plans, they face two major financial losses—money invested in prepaid, non-refundable and unused payments or deposits, and medical expenses that in many instances may not be covered by health insurance.
Often a traveler will lose nonrefundable deposits and prepayments that can add up to hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars. A travel protection plan can provide trip cancellation coverage for the traveler's vacation investment—the insurance company reimburses the traveler for prepaid, non-refundable, and unused payments or deposits for a covered reason.
It reimburses for prepaid, non-refundable, unused payments or deposits if the traveler must cancel or interrupt their trip due to a covered reason.
In addition to trip cancellation and interruption, today's travel protection may also cover emergency medical expenses and emergency medical transportation, to the nearest adequate medical facility when ordered by a doctor. Reimbursement for additional accommodations, meals, and local transportation expenses incurred due to travel delays. Reimbursement for the purchase of essential items if baggage is delayed; and coverage against lost, stolen, or damaged baggage.
Many travel protection plans do not cover terrorism or only cover terrorist acts that occur on foreign soil. Travel insurance through Travel Guard Insurance can cover terrorist incidents both in the United States and abroad.
Travel insurance helps you plan that vacation package you need right now with one less worry. As America's leading travel insurance company, Travel Guard protects more than 6 million travelers each year. We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance from Travel Guard to protect your travel investment. A great new benefit offered by Travel Guard is called "cancel for any work-related reason" and protects you if you are required to cancel for any work-related reason.
