Plan Alaska with Confidence

As you consider a trip to Alaska this summer we know that the impact of COVID-19 and the health of you and your travel companions is top of mind. We're committed to providing you with flexible planning solutions that take at least some of the uncertainty out of traveling this summer.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Because of changes day tour operators, hotels, transportation services, and National Parks have made to their summer operating dates, we are now strongly encouraging that guests wait to travel to Alaska until after July 1, 2020.
  • We have instituted a flexible cancellation policy for 2020. All reservations are now fully refundable up until 31 days prior to travel. No cancellation fees, no change fees, no fuss.
  • In addition, we have over 300 services, including the Alaska Railroad and our Park Connection Motorcoach, that are now fully refundable up until 72 hours prior to service. This will give us even more flexibility for refunding guests who need to cancel within 30 days of travel.
  • If you do need to cancel, you will also have the option of rolling over your deposit to a 2021 trip. If you do so, we will honor our 2020 rates or we will extend a 5% discount, whichever saves you more.
  • When looking into flights to Alaska, be sure to review flexible terms offered by many airlines including Alaska Airlines, United, Delta, and others. Also consider holding off on purchasing airline tickets until four to six weeks before travel.
