Guarantee NO surcharges

The moment your booking is confirmed we will give you our 100% guarantee there will be no price increases or additional fees to be paid. Whatever happens to sterling, oil prices, and taxes anywhere in the world, it will not affect the cost of your holiday.

Promise the price you’ll get is the best around

In the unlikely event that you should find the same holidays arrangements elsewhere at a lower price, we will do our best to improve on it. Do bear in mind that arrangements which appear the same can be very different – we are very particular about the partners we work with and only do so with the best and most reliable. Discover more »

Give you peace of mind with Financial & Consumer Protection

With Discover the World, your financial security is guaranteed. We are ATOL and ABTOT Protected and you are covered by extremely stringent British travel industry regulations and UK legislation throughout your holiday.

We are also members of ABTA – The Travel Association and AITO (The Association of Independent Tour Operators). Discover more »

Offer a flexible approach to pricing

Due to constantly changing currencies, fuel prices and airfares, we’ve adopted a flexible approach to pricing to ensure we give you the best possible price at the time of booking. Our brochure prices are to be used as guidelines only – the actual price will be confirmed when you book your holiday and it may end up being lower or higher than shown in the brochure. Up-to-date pricing is available on our website or can be obtained by calling our team of travel specialists. This policy allows us to give you the best possible price at the time of booking, including any special offers. But remember, due to our ‘no surcharge’ guarantee, once we have booked and confirmed your holiday, your price is fully guaranteed.

Polar Discounts
Discounting is common in the cruise industry and polar voyaging is no exception. We will always pass on voyage operator discounts; these may include both early booking and, on occasion, late availability offers or short-term ‘sales’. You will find these listed on our website throughout the year. We will always offer the best price available from the voyage operator at the time of booking. Whilst last minute deals can seem attractive, there are limited places available on our expedition ships and so we strongly advise booking your polar expedition voyage as early as possible. This way you can secure your preferred itinerary, departure date, vessel and cabin category, whilst also taking advantage of the lowest possible airfares and applicable early booking discounts.

During the eruption we were very impressed by your telephone concern and checks on our progress whilst on tour – also your reminder of your 100% guarantee. This makes you a bit special!
