Q:

Obviously I haven't traveled much and my passport needs to be renewed NOW because I want to book the Equador trip. Since my last passport is in my last married name, my new one will be in my new married name. Soooo, right now all I can show you is my old passport with my old name until the new one comes. Is this going to be a problem ????

Ellen B.  asked on  Feb 11, 2013

A:

You can make the reservation now, but you will need to be sure that you give your name EXACTLY the way you entered it on your new passport application. If you have a copy of the application you can send a copy of that to us. When you get the new passport you will need to send us a copy of that right away.

Q:

The date we want to purchase (May 21) is sold out. Is there any chance that people who purchased that date will drop out, opening spaces for others? Am I able to purchase for another date so I don't miss out on the deal, and if someone drops out we can move into that space? I would like to purchase 2 groupons, but May is the only time we can go. Please advise if there is any option. Thank you.

Vernon & Sara W.  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

The Groupon would have to be purchased by the specified date and redeemed by the specified date. If you purchase the Groupon and do not call in to redeem it by the specified date you will not be eligible for the savings being offered. The Groupon voucher will be good for the face value and you would have to pay the difference in cost if you redeem it after the special pricing expires. I know this sounds like a lot, but waiting for someone to cancel is not very likely to work out for you. I would recommend that you choose a date that is available, hopefully we have another date that fits into your busy schedule.

Q:

Can a family of 4 all get this price?

Jessica P.  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

As long as the deal is still available on Groupon you can purchase the deal for your whole family. You will have to purchase one Groupon Voucher for each family member for the option you want.

Q:

I do not have my passport yet but will have it within the next month or so and would like to book the April tour. Can I do this without having my passport right now? You mention you have to have a copy of a signed passport at the time of booking. Thanks

Lynne L.  asked on  Feb 5, 2013

A:

Hi Lynne. You can definitely get your voucher and redeem it once you have your passport, or you can be very careful about giving us your name, when you redeem your voucher with us, so that it is exactly as it will be on your new passport. It is very problematic to change a name on a ticket, and very expensive, too. And because of security issues, your passport must match your name on your ticket, exactly.
