International Travel Returns with Cosmos

Including Flexible Booking and Travel Options

June 10, 2021 Update

Cosmos is happy to announce that we’ve resumed international operation to destinations for fully vaccinated travelers. Cosmos currently has many tours and dates available for summer and fall travel as European countries and international destinations continue to confirm that U.S. residents can travel freely. And, as more countries open to American travelers, our team will expand operations following their given guidelines.

As of now, countries open to American travelers with available Cosmos tours and 2021 travel dates include:

  • United States (Domestic Tours)
  • Greece
  • Israel
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Ireland
  • France
  • Jordan
  • Switzerland
  • Plus select Italy departures

This listing of open countries will be expanding in the coming weeks, and we will update this listing of accessible countries and available departures on a regular basis. For 2022 departures for your select destination, simply check our website for available departure dates.

For any questions regarding your preferred destination and available 2021 travel dates, please contact us at 800.276.1241 or call your travel advisor.

And given that many destinations continue to have restricted access, departures for select destinations will be suspended through July 31, 2021. Also note that the 2021 Edinburgh Military Tattoo has been cancelled, and options are being presented to guests on affected tours. The Cosmos guest service team will be in contact with guests affected for any tour suspension to review options for future travel.

Book and Travel with Peace of Mind

Cosmos is allowing guests with bookings on any suspended travel dates to move dates easily and without incurring cancellation fees, land or airline penalties*.

You are free to move your booking on any suspended trip to any Globus family of brands (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) vacation for any destination. If you are not ready to choose your new vacation, the full value paid to us will be provided via a Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future departure through 2022, and is transferrable.

To make the transition easier, this program includes an additional bonus credit. This bonus credit of up to $200 per person will be in addition to your Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future travel through 2022:

  • Bonus credit of $200 for Avalon Waterways
  • Bonus credit of $100 for Globus
  • Bonus credit of $50 for Cosmos, Escapes by Globus & Monograms

To decline this offer and cancel, those on vacations with suspended departures July 16-31, 2021 must advise us by June 25, 2021**.

And for added flexibility for future travel plans, we’re also offering a Peace of Mind Travel Plan, allowing you to move your 2021 or 2022 booking to any other date, departure or brand up until your final payment date. Click here for details.
