- If I Book a Tour, Can I be Guaranteed That it Will Run?
With three persons booked on a date, the trip becomes guaranteed. We reserve the right to cancel a date if there are no confirmed bookings at any time. Please note we are not responsible for guest airfare expenses booked and paid for before individual trips have been officially confirmed to run. We highly recommend not booking or paying for airfare until your trip departure date has been confirmed to run and you are booked on the trip. Please note we are not responsible for guest airfare expenses booked and paid for before individual trips have been officially confirmed to run.
- How Big are the Groups?
The average group size on our tours is about 8. Most trips are capped at 11 guests: this ensures each guest receives exceptional individual support, dedicated attention, and uncompromising care from our guides.
- How Far in Advance Do I Need to Book?
We recommend booking your trip at least 90 days prior to trips departure. Trips do sell out, so booking early or as soon as you are committed to traveling with us is the most reliable means of ensuring a spot on your dream vacation. Based on availability, last-minute bookings can be accommodated up to one week prior to departure when possible.
- How Do I Book a Trip?
You can reserve your space on a tour at anytime online by clicking BOOK NOW on each tour page. Once you have submitted your reservation form, a Trip Consultant will send you within 2 business day a PayPal invoice. (Note: Reserving a Trip from the Traditions Mexico website doesn’t guarantee your booking.) Our Trip Consultant will confirm space availability on your desired trip and finalize your booking once your trip deposit is paid. If you make a reservation more than 90 days prior to the trip, a $450 deposit is due at the time of booking. If you reserve your trip less than 90 days prior to the departure, the full balance is due at the time of booking. Once your booking is complete you will receive an email confirmation with important information pertaining to your trip. Please see below for information on when to book and our cancellation policy.
- When is Final Payment Due?
For all trips, final payment is due 90 days before your trip start date. If you reserve your space under 90 days from your trip’s start date, the full balance of the trip price is due at the time of booking.
- What Does "Double Occupancy" Mean?
Our prices are per person based on two people sharing a room. Guests who wish to have their own room will be charged a Single Supplement fee (see next FAQ below) provided there is room availability on the desired trip.
- What if I am Traveling Solo or Would Like My Own Room? What is a Single Supplement?
The Single Supplement is a fee added to the trip price which secures a private room with no roommate for guests who prefer to room alone. If you would like your own room, please make sure you communicate your request clearly at the time of booking. You can opt for the Single Supplement after you book by contacting us to confirm room availability and the Single Supplement fee assessment. If a private room is not available at the time of your request or you do not communicate to us your desire for your own room, you will be paired with a roommate of the same gender. We will do everything we can to match you with a roommate. If we are not able to match you with a roommate you will be charged a discounted single supplement rate of 50%. If your trip happens to sell out while you are still open to a roommate, Traditions Mexico maintains the right to charge the 50% discounted single supplement cost. This 50% discounted single supplement charge will be billed with final balance. If you are matched up with a roommate we will refund this discounted charge 7 days before the trip start date.
- Will Someone Meet Me at the Airport? Are Transfers Included?
Since trip guests arrive from several different places on different flights, Airport Transfers are not included and in most cases, our guests take a taxi from the airport or the hotel from which the tour will initiate. Detailed meeting instructions are provided with your final trip documents as well.
