Caravan FAQs

  • How long has Caravan been in business?
    • Caravan has been offering fully escorted tours worldwide under the same family ownership and management since 1952. Caravan understands and truly cares about your great expectations.
  • Do I have to participate in all of the activities?
    • You may chose to skip an activity and relax at your hotel or do some independent exploring instead. If you do not wish to participate in an activity, simply advise your Tour Director. In most cases, we cannot make refunds for missed activities.
  • How far in advance do I need to book my tour?
    • Many tours sell out each year. The farther in advance that you book, the more likely it is that your preferred tour will be open. Late bookings are welcome if the space is still available. 
  • Does information on the web site differ from the brochures?
    • com is constantly updated and is likely to have more complete and current information about new tours, hotel descriptions, weather, transfers, packing and other useful information. While we strive for perfection, errors are inevitable, both in print and on this web site. 
  • S. Center for Disease Control
    • You may check the U.S. Center for Disease Control website at www.cdc.gov/travel for the latest travel advisories and disease information on your travel destination. Caravan does not have any medical doctors on staff and cannot provide medical advice. 
  • Do you have family trips?
    • Families are always welcome on any of our tours, but we do not have any programs specifically for or limited to families. Families can make specific requests for connecting, adjacent, triple or quad rooms, when available. Children should be at least 5 years old.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    • Caravan accepts payment (in U.S. funds only) via MasterCard, Visa, Discover or by check.
  • Can I use my cell phone on tour?
    • Out of courtesy to your fellow tour members, please restrict the use of cellphones to emergency use only when you are on the motorcoach. Please also remember to turn off ringers; cellphone conversations and ringers are intrusive and can spoil other passengers’ enjoyment of the tour. Please contact your service provider for information regarding cell phone reception areas, calling costs and surcharges.
