FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IF I CAN’T DECIDE WHERE TO CELEBRATE MY MILESTONE?

We can help you with suggestions based on your personal likes and dislikes, travel budget and dates. There are so many places around the world, and even closer to home, that makes beautiful places for special celebrations.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO PLAN IN ADVANCE?

Destinations celebrations such as weddings (in particular) need a good year of advance planning. Do not leave this to the last minute or even the last few months as, depending on the time of year, flights, seating or accommodation may not be available.

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I GIVE MY GUESTS TO PLAN?

Considering your special event is away from home, it is best to give your guests at least 3-6 months of advance notice, depending on how far you are going and what the cost is likely to be for them. Invitations should be sent out many months in advance and it would be a good idea to send out ‘save the date’ cards up to a year in advance.

HOW CAN I PAY FOR THIS?

Touchdown Tours has a special interest free finance option which you can ask about. You could also pay by credit card (fees apply), direct deposit, or cash. It’s all up to you.

DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR MY GUESTS AT A DESTINATION WEDDING?

Etiquette requires you to pay for the airfares and lodgings of your wedding party (matron of honour, best man, bridesmaids and groomsmen). The wedding party must pay for any outside activities and meals as well as any other formal attire they may want.

DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?

Many people often ask “Do I really need travel insurance?” It’s something travel agents hear a lot. This specific type of insurance is not something to skimp out on, especially when you are paying large amounts for your travel. The few extra dollars could be not only money-saving but also life-saving.

There are many benefits to travel insurance. It will offer you:
· Coverage in cases of unforeseen events when travelling
· It can not only save you tens of thousands for medical emergencies but help with emergency accommodation and vehicle accidents
· Dental insurance
· Assistance with lost or stolen luggage, handbags, backpacks and other items
· Assistance when your flight has been cancelled or rescheduled – this can wreak havoc on your travel plans.

Many Aussies mistakenly believe that their Australian health insurance will cover them in other countries. This is not the case, and any trip to a doctor’s clinic or a hospital, especially the latter, can end up costing thousands, even tens of thousands.

Even within Australia, if you happen to be travelling in an area that is more remote and there is a sudden medical emergency, you may have to be airlifted out to a bigger city.

Things such as weather, strikes, or technical issues can result in people missing a connecting flight or even leaving on the one they are scheduled to be on. In such cases, the last thing people want is to be left out of pocket for something that was unavoidable and not their fault.

It is also important to mention that banks and credit card companies are now offering insurance for travel, however, this insurance is often not comprehensive travel insurance and many people find out too late, that it was not worth what they paid for it. Travel insurance companies are experts in travel and therefore have the expertise and the coverage that is necessary for people travelling overseas or domestically.

So, when travelling, whether it be domestic or overseas, travel insurance is a must and should never be overlooked. Always check the terms and conditions. Touchdown Tours only works with reputable travel insurance companies that can have you covered for every unforeseen event.
