If you’re like me, you had big travel plans for 2020 that got totally scratched. SailWeek was one of the trips I was looking forward to most — I took a solo trip for my birthday the year before, hopping between the Croatian islands, and it was the trip of a lifetime. So much so, I spent all winter thinking about warm morning swims in those clear blue waters, falling asleep on the bow watching shooting stars, and exploring ancient cities with new friends.
So when I had to postpone my trip due to travel restrictions I was obviously disappointed, but I wasn’t distraught. SailWeek had my back with totally transferable credits for 2021, giving me hope that next summer I’d be back on the water with the wind in my sails. Now with the 2021 season upon us, I’m more excited than ever to jump back aboard with SailWeek — especially because they’ve been working hard to make 2021 the summer you don’t want to miss.
Here’s why you should be just as excited as I am…
You’re totally covered
How many hours did you spend on customer service calls this year trying to get money back for flights, hotels, and trips? Too many. So, while we’re all excited about the adventures and parties that await us next summer, you’re probably also realistic that things can change at any moment. That’s why it’s more important than ever to book with companies you trust — companies that have you covered.
I would argue that SailWeek has the best policy in the industry — allowing you to easily change, postpone, and cancel trips in 2021 if need be. Here’s how they have your back…
1. Transferable Travel Credit
This new program allows you to transfer your 2020 travel credits to someone else to use in 2021, 2022, 2023, free of charge. Yep, that means you can sell your ticket from last year if need be.
2. If SailWeek has to cancel, you get your money back
SailWeek is always reluctant to cancel trips. Even in 2020 when other operators were canceling trips, SailWeek was setting sail. However if they really need to cancel a trip, you’ll get a full refund.
3. You can cancel your trip for a full refund
All new 2021 bookings that are made before the 1st of April 2021 can be canceled for free, and with a full refund within 30 days of the booking — no questions asked.
4. You also have the option to be flexible
Say you can’t make it to Greece anymore, but you can Croatia. Now, SailWeek will let you change your date, destination route, or postpone up to 45 days before your original trip — no problem.
There’s more choice than ever
You know SailWeek for their epic Croatia trips — they even expanded to Greece a few years back. Now, they’re gearing up for 2021 to be their biggest and best season yet by adding Malta and Montenegro to the routes.
If you love the culture of SailWeek and have taken their Croatia or Greece trips already, this is a great way to experience a new country with the same vibe you know and love. And if you’re new to SailWeek, well, you’re lucky to have more choice than ever now. Join the party route in Croatia, cliff jump in Greece, sail the luxurious bays of Montenegro or explore the historical coast of Malta. The only real downside to joining SailWeek this year is having to narrow down which route you want to take.
There’s a renewed energy you won’t want to miss
The year 2020 was tough for all of us in different ways. But for the skippers and locals who are always so excited to host travelers and show off their country, the last year had a major impact. In 2021, I think there’s going to be a renewed energy on the SailWeek routes that’s infectious. Some of my favorite memories from my trip in 2019 were the locals and business people who were so incredibly kind and hospitable — uncorking bottles, tipping us off to their favorite places, and even opening up their homes. So now, ready to make up for lost time with you, I think 2021 is going to feel extra special.
You deserve this
Let’s be real – after the year we’ve had, you deserve this trip. Aboard SailWeek, every day a new adventure awaits, which is just what you need after a year cooped up at home. But, the best part is probably that SailWeek makes it incredibly easy to unplug, relax, and enjoy every moment to the fullest. Because their experts chart out the entire adventure for you, all you have to do is show up ready to have a good time.
As you sail to your new destination each morning, sit back, and read a book. After lunch, indulge in an afternoon swim. Choose your favorite afternoon activity, then party with your crew that night. Believe me when I say this is going to be one of the best weeks of your life, and when it’s over, you’re going to already be planning your next trip. But for now, get ready to join the best season yet – 2021.
