Day 7 - Departure
Sadly today is our last day and time to leave our beautiful hotel and the Maldives.
A transfer will be organized to the airport in time for your international flight out of the Maldives.
These trips will not be led by Janet but by a Janet’s Journeys regular. There will be a local guide and driver, and your trip leader will be there to answer questions, curate the epic playlist, and ensure the group has a ridiculous amount of fun each and every day.
Your deposit, in theory, is non-refundable. As the tour company requires it to book all the hotels etc. However if I can find someone to take your place, I’ll refund you in full, minus bank charges.
For the balance of your payment, the tour company can refund this up to 6 weeks before the trip should you have an emergency/illness / need to cancel. Anything closer than 6 weeks, and they cannot refund you. However, again, if I can find someone last minute to fill your spot, then yes you get your money back. Case by case basis.
I suggest you take out travel insurance that covers trip cancellations, that way should something awful happen like you get Covid, you will get a full payout from your insurance company.
*All rooms on all trips are shared. We will partner you with an adventure buddy – an amazing way to make new friends!
