seriously, FUCK it. We wanted to do cool shit this year
there are bigger things to worry about right now than our 2020 travel plans, but gee we had some good ones. Now’s the time to put most* of our trips on ice, but girl oh boy YOU BETTER BELIEVE that WE’LL BE BACK in 2021
And we want you with us, so we’re throwing down €1 RISK-FREE BOOKINGS UNTIL THE WORLD MAKES SENSE AGAIN
Book with confidence with Stoke Travel and let’s start dreaming about the good times on the other side of this
Want to keep reading? Here are some COVID-19 Bookings, Terms & Conditions
While we’re certain that this will soon be over, and that travel will return to normal, these are special and strange times and we understand that many travellers don’t feel confident in making plans. That’s why we want to offer you risk-free bookings so that you can still daydream about, and plan, trips for when the lockdowns end and travel resumes as normal.
*while we’re allowed to operate, and can do so safely, some Stoke Travel Trips Are Still Going Ahead
Barcelona is open for tourism, but we have to stick to strict health and hygiene standards, and we ain’t mad one bit about it. Barcelona Boat Parties are happening, including our private yacht charters. We also have our Barcelona Cooking Class, Cocktail Classes, and the Costa Brava Kayaking and Snorkelling trip. We’ll be running all of these into October. The San Sebastian Surf House is open for business and there’s nowhere better to social distance than in the sea. Stoke Afloat Sail Croatia is done, with a sellout boat enjoying the best of the Dalmatian Coast and getting mighty fucked up, in a classy, seafaring, cultural way. We’re still going ahead with Rise Festival in the French Alps, and at time of writing it was still as on as on can be, ooh la la.
€1 Deposits On All Bookings Until There Is Some Clarity In This Crisis
With the world all topsy turvy at the moment, we can’t with any certainty say which Stoke Travel trips will be going ahead this year and which won’t. Heck, we don’t even know which airlines are still operating and across which routes, nor whether any countries have their borders open anymore. It’s not the best time to book trips and travel plans with any kind of confidence.
That said, the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis is the best time to be booking trips. We all need something, anything, to take our minds off the daily dose of bad news, to distract us from the routine of being stuck at home, and there’s nothing that inspires cheer more than daydreaming about upcoming bucket-list trips, and then booking them in! Give yourself some light at the end of the tunnel, and do so with absolute confidence that you’re not going to be left out of pocket.
N.B: almost all airlines around the world are trying to encourage travellers by offering 100% flexibility on all bookings. This means that you can book in your Oktoberfest trip, Barcelona Boat Party, San Sebastian Surf Camp stay, or any of our other destinations, AND reserve your flights with little-to-no risk. This includes notoriously inflexible European budget airlines, like RyanAir, Vueling and EasyJet, so jump on these deals while they’re available and dream of a virus-free future.
Completely Flexible Bookings Made From Now Until Further Notice
Once you do book we’re going to expand our T&Cs to allow you complete freedom to change the names on your bookings, and to change dates, for a full 24 months after the initial booking was due to run. This includes changes made inside our no-refund periods, right up until the event itself. Again, this measure is just to give you as much flexibility as possible, because we want you to feel confident in booking trips during this difficult time. It’s good for you, because it allows you to focus on more positive things in life, and it’s good for us, because we know that there are still travellers out there looking forward to doing trips with us.
It’s been really lonely in the travel industry lately.
So use some of the extra downtime you have to plan some amazing trips for summer 2020 and beyond, and as soon as this virus is defeated and it’s time for us to party and travel again, let’s all get together and make up for all the parties we didn’t have throughout this period. And view our regular terms and conditions here.
