To review full plan details online, go to www.tripmate.com/wpA430 prior to your purchase. The AV-OK Total Vacation Security Plan must be purchased within 7 days of your initial booking (except for group passengers who are subject to unique contracts*). For bookings created within 14 days of departure, AV-OK must be purchased at time of booking.
The AV-OK Total Vacation Security Plan includes a Pre-Departure Cancellation/Change Waiver and Best Price Guarantee (Part A) and Post-Departure Travel Insurance (Part B).
1) APPLE VACATIONS' PRE-DEPARTURE CANCELLATION/CHANGE WAIVER - This waiver pertains to all vacation types: land only, charter, and scheduled air vacations including non-refundable scheduled airfares and airline penalties. This non-refundable plan allows you to cancel or change your vacation up until the flight check-in is closed (approximately one hour prior to scheduled departure time), except for passengers who do not arrive at the airport or gate, or who arrive too late to travel, or who fail to have the required valid passport and/or travel documents. For last minute cancels, call 1-866-860-AVOK no later than one hour prior to your scheduled departure.
Travel Certificate Programs: When a cancellation is made during a penalty period, your cancellation penalty will be refunded in Apple Vacations' travel certificates (redeemable through the original booking agency), with the balance of the refund made in the original form of payment less the non-refundable AV-OK plan payment. Apple Vacations travel certificates may be used like cash when purchasing an Apple Vacation, are valid for one year, are non-refundable and non-transferable (issued only in the name of the passenger who cancelled) and may not be redeemed for cash.
"Cash Back" Programs: The entire refund (less the non-refundable AV-OK plan payment) will be in original form of payment if you purchased the "cash back" option at the time of booking for an additional $30 per person.
Changes: AV-OK coverage is non-transferable and must be repurchased (reactivated) if coverage is desired for the amended booking. A reactivation fee of $25 for charter/land only bookings and $45 for scheduled air bookings applies for all departure date, duration, hotel, departure city, destination and (scheduled air) class of service changes. A $10 reactivation fee applies for children 12 and under (all booking types). Higher reactivation fees apply to holiday departures. Changes from charter to scheduled air or between scheduled air carriers, as well as name changes, require cancellation of the booking and full repurchase of the AV-OK if coverage is desired on the new booking. If the number of individuals occupying a room changes, the remaining travelers will be responsible for any additional costs incurred as a result of a change in the per person occupancy rate.
2) APPLE VACATIONS' BEST PRICE GUARANTEE - You can claim the savings prior to departure if Apple Vacations advertises a discount on the exact same vacation that you have booked and all components are still available-same date, duration of stay, hotel, room category and flight (same scheduled airfare class, or any charter airfare class). This does not apply to Air Only, Fly/Drive, Square Deals, special packages, booking date-restricted sales and hotels with a "closed" booking status. Many added values offered by hotels are booking date-restricted and are not covered by the Best Price Guarantee.
3) APPLE VACATIONS' POST DEPARTURE TRAVEL INSURANCE PLAN - Trip Interruption, Travel Delay, Medical, Baggage and more! This travel protection plan protects your vacation investment, your belongings, and most importantly, you. Plan payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.
