No! One of the main ideas of Veg Jaunts and Journeys is to show new vegans and aspiring vegans and even those that have never thought of becoming vegan, that traveling as a vegan is not difficult. If you’re not yet vegan, other members of the group will be very happy to share resources and tips with you.

However, when eating with the group, only vegan food will be allowed at the table. This means that even if eggs, cheese or milk happen to be offered at the restaurant, that you refrain from consuming it.

It’s a lot more fun than traveling alone!

At popular sites, tickets and reservations, when possible, will be secured ahead of time, so you will save time by not having to stand in long lines.

Oftentimes restaurants do not take reservations unless you’re part of a group.

Transportation costs, such as hiring a van and local driver, can be split across the group, making it much easier in terms of time and money, to reach worthwhile places off the tourist trail.

Yes, the advantage of slow travel and not rushing through places is that you can have some down time to just relax and explore or take part in activities for which you have a particular interest. You may also opt to add an extra day onto the end of your tour.

You may opt not to join some planned tour activities and choose your own activity, but this will be at your own expense. Please know there will not be any refund for unused portions of the tour, or for included meals you may wish to have on your own.

We welcome solo travelers!
Prices are generally based on single occupancy/having your own room.
In cities where the accommodations are expensive, price may be based on sharing a room. If you wish to have your own room, the single supplement price will be listed.
We are happy to match you with a roommate of the same gender, when possible, in order to save costs.

The ideal window for lowest airfare is 3-5 months prior to departure. Please make sure you have travel insurance in case you need to cancel your tour with us for any reason, since Veg Jaunts and Journeys will not refund airline tickets should you need to cancel your tour. Please see our Terms and Conditions.

Please note: Most flights from the USA and Canada to Europe are overnight flights, so you will arrive in Europe the day after your departure from the US. Make sure to book your flight accordingly. When you return, you’ll arrive in the US or Canada the same day your leave Europe.
For example, to arrive in Europe on Saturday (the first day of the tour), you will need to leave Friday from the US or Canada. Returning home, if the tour ends on a Sunday (the last day of the tour), you will depart that day to arrive in the US or Canada on the same day, usually late afternoon or early evening.

Travel insurance is highly recommended. Please carry the details of your insurance with you. You may need to provide details of your medical insurance in some countries before medical assistance will be provided.

A recommended, easy to use website is www.insuremytrip.com.

Please check with your health insurance provider to determine if you are covered while traveling. If you will not be covered under your policy, we strongly recommend that you arrange for additional coverage while on tour.

If you are a resident of the US traveling internationally, no vaccinations are currently required for Europe.

Unfortunately, sometimes flights are delayed, and sometimes your luggage will not arrive with you (an even better reason to travel with only a carry-on). To prevent delays, make sure you have at least 2-3 hours between connecting flights. If your flight is cancelled or you arrive to the specified meeting point after the tour starts, please be in touch with your tour guide (you will receive name and contact details by email prior to departure). We will do our best to help you, but it will be your responsibility to get to the accommodation from wherever you are and pay for any related expenses.
Travel insurance is highly recommended for any unexpected emergency expenses.

A deposit of $200 per person is required to book any US or Canadian tour and 25% of the overall tour price per person deposit for any international tour.

Balance for tours will be due 60 days prior to departure.

If booking is made within 60 days of departure, full payment is due on reservation.

We are a small tour operator and work tirelessly to create great itineraries.

Any cancellations affect the entire group.

Remember you have the option to obtain travel insurance and if you choose not to purchase this, you are taking a risk.

Veg Jaunts and Journeys is not responsible for any cancellations by you due to personal reasons, health, medical, adverse weather conditions, war and threat of war, civil strife, terrorism, or natural disaster or any other reason. You are responsible for protecting your investment with travel insurance, but not limited to; medical expenses, baggage, accident, loss or damage to property, cancellation and curtailment, personal liability and emergency.
We are not responsible for any expenses that you may incur as a result of your not purchasing travel insurance or the travel insurance not covering the loss at issue.

Cancellation fees apply regardless of the reason for the cancellation.

We reserve the right not to operate a tour if we do not get the minimum number of guests for the tour to operate, in which case the deposit would be refunded to you or put toward another tour we offer if you so choose.

Cancellation fees for all tours:

  • Cancellation within 60 days of departure will result in loss of deposit.
  • Cancellation within 30 days of departure will result in a 50% penalty.
  • Cancellation within 14 days of departure will result in a 75% penalty.
  • Cancellation within 7 days of departure will result in no refund.
