Cancellations for any reason on the PPP Plan must be received by Vacation Express a minimum of 24 hours prior to original scheduled departure time as indicated in your travel documents or no later than 5pm the day prior to departure for hotel-only bookings. When you purchase the Vacation Express PPP, all applicable cancellation charges [not change fees] as per your Terms and Conditions contract will be refunded in the form of Vacation Express travel certificates [PPP Voucher] as follows: 1. Charter air packages and Land Only packages will receive the cost of the package, less the cost of PPP on a PPP voucher, which must be redeemed within one year from the original departure date. 2. Scheduled-Air packages will receive a PPP voucher for the cost of the land portion less the PPP fee. Clients will receive the airline ticket numbers [or paper tickets] and be advised of the ticket cost. Clients can use the cost of the airline ticket, less the airline change fee [usually $150 to $250 per ticket] to purchase a new ticket to: a] the same Vacation Express destination on same carrier, b] a different Vacation Express destination on same carrier, or c] any destination that the issuing carrier serves. If clients take option "c" they must contact the issuing airline directly for reservations.

VERY IMPORTANT – Scheduled-air tickets must be used by one year from original purchase date however some airlines may require that tickets be reissued within 60 days of original purchase date. Please check with your airline for their specific requirements. Any increases in the air or hotel price of rebooked vacations are the responsibility of the traveler. Travel certificates are issued in the original names of the passengers on the booking at the time of cancellation. The certificates are non-transferable and name changes will not be accepted. Any tickets that are booked in basic economy class cannot be changed, carry no residual value and are non-refundable. PPP can be repurchased when rebooking clients' vacation with the original PPP voucher. Under no circumstances does the PPP allow for a full or partial cash refund, nor is it extendible. Please note that the PPP provides limited post departure coverage as listed below.
