BEFORE YOU REGISTER

YOU MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO GO ON THIS TRIP

Although we don’t know what regulations will be in place come June 2022, we must limit this trip to only those who are fully vaccinated. After registration you will be asked to provide a copy of your vaccination card and your passport.

THIS IS A LAND-ONLY TRIP

This package includes the entire itinerary but does NOT include any airfare. You are responsible for meeting at KRK (John Paul II Kraków – Balice Internation Airport) on Saturday June 25, 2022, at 2:45pm local time. Failure to meet the group by the announced time will mean that you are responsible for catching up with the group on your own.

 

Although you must book your own airfare we are happy to assist you in booking flights.  After registration we will announce designated “group flights”.  You are NOT required to fly on the designated group flights to KRK. This simply makes it easy to coordinate traveling with other people in the group. and ensures that you will arrive at an ideal time to meet and depart with the group from Krakow.

ROOM BY YOURSELF (aka SINGLE SUPPLEMENT ADD-ON)

All rooms are double occupancy unless a Single Supplement Add-On is purchased.  Persons traveling in a pair may designate the other traveler as their roommate during registration. If you are traveling solo and wish to room by yourself, you will need to select the Single Supplement Add-On at the time of registration. Otherwise, if you are traveling by yourself we will match singles with other singles of the same gender. It’s always works out well and usually new friendships come from it!

TRIP INSURANCE

When you register you will be offered the opportunity to purchase trip insurance. You are NOT required to have trip insurance in order to travel with us, but it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

With regulations regarding COVID-19 constantly changing, it is our emphatic recommendation that you purchase a CANCEL FOR ANY REASON insurance policy.

We don't know what government regulations will be like this summer, but should something unpredictable happen - say, you test positive for COVID-19 and are unable to fly - you'll wish you had insurance. If you were to be in the country and test positive and be quarantined and not be allowed to fly back home with the group - you'll wish you had insurance.

Should something happen before or during the trip, Virgilio Travel will be constrained by its Terms and Conditions. Translation: the money spent on trip insurance is the best way to ensure that if something goes sideways you recover as much of your money as possible, and have resources at your disposal to help cover unforeseen expenses.

We urge you to seriously consider this BEFORE registering for the trip. Read these COVID & Insurance FAQs for more information.

 

Although the easiest way to buy trip insurance (and probably the most competitively priced) is through the registration portal, you are NOT required to buy trip insurance via the registration portal. You may purchase trip insurance on your own, however please be advised that most trip insurance policies must be purchased within a very narrow timeframe of the first monies paid for a trip (i.e., the deposit). Therefore if you do not buy trip insurance through the registration portal but plan to purchase it through another vendor, you should begin shopping for a policy immediately after registering. 

Documents outlining the two different trip insurance offerings in the registration portal are linked here (ENHANCED PLAN and STANDARD PLAN). Please read this carefully if opting to purchase trip insurance through the registration portal. If you choose to purchase trip insurance through the portal you will be required to pay the premium at the same time as the non-refundable deposit, and your policy information will automatically be sent to you after your registration.

Please note that if you are a resident of Canada or the State of New York the ENHANCED PLAN is not available and will not be displayed. Currently no insurance companies are writing CANCEL FOR ANY REASON policies for these residents due to legal constraints in those jurisdictions. We would advise you to purchase the Standard TripMate Protection Plan offered in the registration portal or another general trip insurance product from a third party.

MEDICAL INFORMATION

During the registration process you will see a Medical Information section that includes fields for your insurance policy and group number, along with other fields. Filling out anything on this page is ENTIRELY OPTIONAL. If, however you have a food allergy or other medical condition of which we should be aware, we ask that you include that information in the appropriate field on that page before moving on to the rest of the registration process.

A $1,000 per person non-refundable deposit secures your spot on this trip.

If asked for a Trip Code use POLAND

Registering is simple and should take no more than 5-10 minutes. If you have any trouble, HERE is a video that walks you through the process. Your spot is booked once you receive the “PAYMENT RECEIPT FOR POPES, PIEROGIS, & POLISHNESS” email. Within 72 hours of receiving that email you will receive another email with a note from Lino, a recap of important deadlines, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and more.
