What is a guaranteed departure?

A guaranteed departure means that there is no minimum number of bookings required on a trip for it to run. So, if you book an Intrepid trip that is a guaranteed departure, you’ll definitely be heading off on the adventure of a lifetime.

Which trips are guaranteed to depart?

The vast majority of our small group adventures are guaranteed to depart. However, if your chosen trip is more than a year away when you book, it may not become a guaranteed departure until closer to the time. There are also certain trips, like our Expeditions range, that have a minimum number of travellers required before they will be guaranteed to depart.

You can easily tell which departures are guaranteed by looking for 'guaranteed departure' next to your chosen travel date.

Will a guaranteed departure ever be cancelled or changed?

The safety of our travellers is our number one priority, so for this reason, Intrepid may occasionally adjust an itinerary for safety reasons or to improve our travellers’ experience. In this instance, we would always contact travellers to let them know of the changes and why they have been made.
