I Have a Few Questions
Should I get travel insurance?
Travel insurance is a personal choice, but we think it's a good idea. You never know what my happen that could prevent you from traveling, so adding it can't hurt.
Do GVC trips include travel insurance?
Our trips do not include travel insurance in their base pricing. Please consider purchasing travel insurance through us or through a third party.
Is there a minimum age to travel?
Yes, all travelers must be 21 years old as of the date of departure.
Are there any forms to complete prior to travel?
Yes, you will need to complete an emergency contact form and travel release form prior to travel. These forms will be sent to you via email around the time of final payment. If you would like a copy before then please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are all events planned on trips?
Although we do plan a number of activities for you, we don't plan all your activities. We understand that first and foremost you came on your GVC trip to spend time with your friends. For that reason, we give you a lot of free time to plan your own activities with your girls. Whether it's bar hopping, a beach day, or a once in a lifetime excursion, you will have just the right amount of time together.
When will new trips be online?
Our team is constantly working on new trips and will advertise our newest trips on our website, facebook, and through our mailing list. The best way to find out about our newest launches is to join our mailing list.
Pricing and Payment
What's included in the price?
Your price includes your accommodations, all taxes and fees, and private events with Girls Vacation Club. While airfare is never included, soda and alcoholic beverages are not included on cruises or US based trips, but will be included at all-inclusive resorts.
How do I make my deposit?
You can make your deposit by clicking on the BOOK NOW tab on our website. You will be given a number of options for your stateroom type. Pick the option that's right for you and your crew, pay your deposit, and you're all set! One of our staffers will contact you soon after.
Is my online deposit per person or per room?
The online deposit is per room. Once you place your deposit you have held your room for you and your roommate (or you alone if you prefer a bed to yourself). If you would like to split the initial deposit between you and your roommate please email us at email@example.com to make a payment arrangement. If splitting the deposit your room will not be held until both parties have placed their deposit.
What happens if I need to cancel?
We will be very sad, but we understand things come up.
I made my deposit, now what?
Get excited, you're going on a girls trip!
Are there a limited number of rooms at each price point?
Yes! There are only a few rooms available for each price point, and once they sell out the pricing is subject to increase. If you see a room you want, grab it while you can, we can't guarantee it will be there tomorrow.
What is the cancelation policy?
The cancelatiion policy is different for every trip and will be featured on the Girls Trips section of the website, as well as your confirmation email after your deposit is paid. We, of course, hope you don't need to cancel, but we know things happen.
How do I set up a payment plan?
Glad you asked! All you need to do is fill out the credit card authorization form on the FORMS page and sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. We will contact you if we have any questions or need additional information.
What happens if I miss the final payment date?
If you don't make your final payment by the final payment date your reservation is subject to cancellation and to the payment terms set out for each trip. A GVC representative will contact you prior to cancellation, but cannot confirm that you will not be subject to the penalties set forth by cruise lines, hotels, air carriers, or resort partners.
Do I need a passport to travel?
Each trip has different requirements. While most US citizens don't need a passport for closed look cruises (cruises that start and end at the same port), you will need an original birth certificate and your photo ID. To travel outside of the US by air, you will need a passport.
What if I get sea sick?
While cruise ships have made improvements to prevent sea sickness, it can still happen. If you are prone to sea sickness, please select rooms with a window or near the middle of the ship. If you are unsure of which room you should book please feel free to email us and we would be happy to help!
How much money should I bring with me?
That's really up to you and depends on the trip. As your trip gets closer we will include information on what you may need cash for, but in general, cash should be brought for tips (small bills) and taxis.
Will the Girls Vacation Club events be private?
Yes, all GVC events will be private, and only for those who have booked with us. There are some events that are open to others, but these events will be clearly marked on your final itinerary. So don't fret, you will have a chance to invite new friends to hang out with us.
Do we have to socialize with the other groups of friends traveling?
You don't have to do anything you don't want to do (that's what girls trips are about, right?). While there will be other groups of friends traveling with you, and activities are planed for everyone, you can attend as little or as much as you'd like.
What events does GVC plan for travelers?
While each trip is unique, you can be sure that each trip will include our signature Red Party where you get your best red outfit and meet us to party until the wee hours.
Does GVC staff travel with us?
Of course! We are here to ensure you have a great time, so we always have staff traveling with you. Before you leave you will receive an information packet with your itinerary, events, staff names and photos, and more information you will need prior to traveling.
Can you match me up with a roommate?
Unfortunately, we don't currently match up roommates. Stay posted, we may offer this service at a later date.
What do I do if my roommate cancels?
We hope this issue never comes up, but if it does, your roommate will indicate on their cancellation form if you plan to continue payment on the full room, or if you plan to cancel.
