What happens if I booked a camino in advance and can’t fly for COVID restrictions? Will I lose my money?

No, In the event that the journey has not begun and the traveler is directly affected by the travel restrictions taking place because of the COVID-19 pandemic the following alternatives (that you can find in our terms & condition page: https://galiwonders.com/en/terms-conditions/) will be offered:

-Change of date. In this case, we will honor the same price agreed when the booking was confirmed, if you travel before the end of 2021 (Holy Year). Even if the price increases (which is likely to happen due to the Holy Year), you won’t pay any extra (except for very specific days, such as Saint James Festivals). We strongly recommend this option, that will prevent you from loosing any money in the process, as it guarantees the same rate agreed when the service was booked, with no extra charges applied.

-Change of destination: in this case if you decide to book a different trip with a different price, we would apply the rate valid for this particular tour.

-Voucher for the value of your trip: if you haven’t decided your new dates, don’t worry. We will send you a voucher for the amount you have paid, to be used in the future (until the 31/12/2022).

All the rest of the cases will be covered by the General Cancellation Policy.

What happens if I want to change my dates on a trip that I booked but there are no travel restrictions due to COVID-19?

In this case we wil apply the General Change Policy (that you can find here: https://galiwonders.com/en/terms-conditions/)

What happens if I can start my camino but during my trip there are some lockdowns along the Way?

If the journey had already started and a situation like the one in March of the confinement occurred, we would return the equivalent amount to the services that had not been enjoyed. That is, we would subtract from the refund those non-refundable expenses that would have already been enjoyed.

What kind of assistance will I have during my camino?

You will have 24/7 telephone assistance along your route. We will be available to help you with any issue you might have.

Must I wear a mask in Spain?

Please note that, this is a constantly changing situation and we can only get the information when the government emits it.
