One of the top reasons guests give for planning their trip with us is that it's easy.

From putting together an individualized itinerary to choosing lodging and activities, the process is meant to be effortless. And fun, too! That ease continues all the way through your trip thanks to your final travel documents.

These final documents are emailed to you after you've paid your final trip balance. For most packages that's 45 days prior to your travel date. For products booked within that timeframe final docs are emailed immediately upon confirmation. You'll receive these PDFs:

  • Final Confirmation: Basic trip information and payment details.
  • Itinerary: Comprehensive day-by-day trip breakdown.
  • Terms and Conditions: Cancellation details.
  • Print at Home Tickets (when applicable): Typically only if you've booked the Anchorage Trolley, Alaska Sealife Center, Anchorage Museum, Alaska Native Heritage Center, or the Alaska Salmon Bake. You will not need individual tickets for other services.

Here's why you absolutely should read your travel docs:

1. They Cover Logistics

Hotel shuttles, tour check in times, driving directions. All these logistical details are covered in your itinerary. We recommend reading before you travel, and then taking a minute each evening you're in Alaska to preview the day ahead.

2. They Have Packing Tips

Not sure what to wear on a day cruise, or what to bring on a trip into Denali? Every tour on your final itinerary has packing advice.

3. They Include Contact Details

Some activities require you to call ahead to the tour operator for departure times, locations, and even weather updates. Contact numbers are right there in your itinerary, usually highlighted in red if you need to call ahead.

Now, reads those docs. And have an incredible trip!

At Alaska Tour & Travel, we specialize in building custom trips for every timeline, personality, and budget. If you'd like to have an Alaskan plan your Alaska trip, give us a call at 800-208-0200.
