Why now is the perfect time to book your Vespa Trip

Anyone who books The Vespa Trip between 6th and 20th November 2020 can enjoy our superflex cancellation insurance (with a value of €79) for free. With this insurance, you can cancel your trip for free until 1st April 2021. You don’t need to give us a reason. A couple of weeks before 1st April, we’ll give you the chance to upgrade your cancellation insurance (you can find those conditions here).

Flexible corona policy

Because you spend most of the time on the Vespa with your own travel companions and the contact with other people are limited, we’re convinced that corona won’t cast a shadow on our trips. But, of course, you never know for sure:

  • We will try to execute the journey as good as possible, taking into account the actual measures.
  • If the trip can't take place due to COVID-19, we will contact the traveler and discuss the possibilities of moving the trip to another date.
  • If it's not possible to change dates, the money will be refunded without cost.
  • If there would be an outbreak of any kind, we guarantee all our guests we'll bring them back home safely.
