            Every effort has been made to produce this information accurately. Vantage Deluxe World Travel reserves the right to correct errors.
            Note: Prices shown are valid at press time and are for new bookings only. Prices and inventory are subject to change; please refer to our website for the most up-to-date inventory and prices.

            E-Check — the Quickest & Easiest Way to Pay
            Vantage now accepts E-Checks, the electronic version of your paper check. They automatically debit your checking account without the bother of mailing a check. It's also the best way to get the most value on your SmartPaySM Discount Plan.

            Roommate matches are available in select cabin categories and subject to capacity controls; roommate matches only apply to the base trip, excluding extensions. Vantage Deluxe World Travel reserves the right to downgrade passengers to a lower cabin category as part of the matching process. Passengers who request a roommate match will pay no more than half the Single Supplement at the time the request is made and if a match can be successfully made, both passengers will be refunded the original supplement amount they were charged prior to the match being confirmed. Roommate matches are limited to passengers of the same gender. In the event that a match is not possible, every effort will be made to provide passengers the option to pay a Single Supplement of 150% to be confirmed in a double-occupancy cabin should there be sufficient inventory remaining.

            *Airfares are round-trip and per person and include government taxes and fees, destination airport transfers, and air fuel surcharges. Ask our Travel Consultants about airfare from other cities. Please note that Vantage cannot guarantee the most direct routing to/from your gateway city.
