COVID-19 Response

Travel Safe. 
Travel with Peace of Mind. 
With Verso Ministries. 

Updated: March 10, 2022

Travel may look a little bit different these days. But with Verso, you can trust that our care for you, your safety, and your travel investment are our top priorities. Check back here for up-to-date, relevant information on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.* 

No change fees**

You have flexibility with your upcoming travel.

We know that plans change. That’s why we’ve instituted a new “no change fee” policy that gives you flexibility to switch to another trip — no questions asked — as long as you change at least 60 days prior to departure. All payments that went towards the original pilgrimage will be applied to the balance of the new pilgrimage. 

Introducing SafelySent

Your safety is our top priority.

Your safety and security have always been a top priority at Verso Ministries. Our commitment to all pilgrims is to take precautions wherever we’re traveling, and to work closely with our travel partners to ensure smooth, safe travel. Now, in light of this extraordinary season, it’s the reason we developed our SafelySent program.

SafelySent is a guide of how we’re making safety a top priority at every point along the trip. It includes safety protocols and guidelines for your journey, helping you decipher the regulations and guidelines of the host countries and sites you are traveling to.

**NO CHANGE FEES: In most cases, any individual pilgrim may choose to transfer to a different departure for no fee, as long as they transfer 61 days or more prior to their original date of departure. Any payments made towards the registration fee of the original departure will convert into a travel voucher and will be subject to the terms and conditions regarding travel vouchers. Any payments made for airline tickets, optional excursions, trip options, pre/post extensions, private transfers, and additional hotel nights are subject to the original cancellation fee schedule and policies unless otherwise noted. The free transfer policy is not available for pilgrims booked on Oberammergau, World Youth Day, or other departures that require special event tickets or non-refundable registration fees paid by Verso Ministries to third-party vendors in anticipation of a pilgrim’s participation. 

If an individual pilgrim elects to transfer to a different departure 60 days or less prior to their original date of departure, the transfer will be treated as a cancellation and will be subject to the terms and conditions for cancellation.
