What brochure have you requested? Is it one especially for Ireland or the general ABD brochure?

It took them a couple of months to send out my brochure. I wasn't happy. You can look at it online, (flash) but it's not the same as having it in your hot little hands!

I hope we're right, too, and that your tour has enough people to go. But I think you may be right, and it really depends on a case by case basis...

I'm referring to the ABD Brochure. I'm wondering if this is a cost cutting measure. We're in Canada and perhaps they don't want to bother! Honestly, I've asked 4 times, and requested it on-line as well.

(Maybe 6 months from now I'll end up with 5!)

I'm going to be calling ABD again next month and ask how the tour is coming along.

My dh and I have decided that we will do Ireland on our own if they cancel the tour as we don't want to lose the cost of our flights and our insurance won't cover them.

We haven't booked yet, but Ryanair has loaded them into their system so I will be doing it soon.

I ordered the brochure and received it about two weeks later.

I haven't booked my flight, but will probably be doing so soon, so I checked the cancellation policy. This is what it says with regard to airfare if ABD cancels the trip:

if you booked airfare through us, we will issue a full refund of your airfare; and (iii) if you did not book airfare through us, we will reimburse you for your reasonable out-of-pocket (subject to proof) airline cancellation charges or, in the case of bookings using frequent flier miles, a reasonable cancellation service fee, provided you have exercised best efforts to mitigate such charges/fees

Sounds like you would get at least some of your money back. I'm with you though - I would go anyway.

In case you haven't seen the other threads, my Discovery Down Under trip was cancelled two weeks ago. I think there were some other adventures cancelled as well. If you call ABD they will give you the percentage of capacity that is currently booked for your trip. ABD has handled my cancellation/rebooking situation very well, so I'm happy with the way things have turned out.

When was your trip scheduled (the ones that was cancelled)?

I'm not on these boards much these days, but has there been any mention of ANY of the Ireland adventures being cancelled for this year?

I just called to ask about my dates (June 20). She said it is about 1/3 full. And wasn't really offering me anymore info on how many people the tours need, when this particular adventure usually is cancelled, etc. She did say it is one of their more popular tours and that many of the adventurers book closer to the last minute. Seems odd but anything is possible. Fingers crossed. I would be utterly devastated if this trip is cancelled. And even more so if there are not any other dates this summer that we could do it.

I'm so sorry...but at least you were able to rescedule!

Was your adventure the adults only one?

If not adults only, maybe that one wasn't getting too popular because a lot of kids are in school still.

The adults only is the week after but we had a scheduling conflict that week so we couldn't do it. I agree that it was a bit early but I was hoping it would fill up anyway. Apparently there was only one other family booked on it. I've yet to see anyone else on the DIS booked for the June 13th trip but I'm hoping they pop up soon!

Percentage booked

I just called to see what the percentage booked is on the china trip for july and the lady said they can't see that anymore. They CAN tell me if there is space for my party which is already booked is available... but they can no longer see how much space might be remaining...

I would have liked to have the comfort of knowing it was at least starting to fill..

Ah well.
