Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to mention public debate ever since. What was this vast collection of stones intended for?

Why MonoGrams?

History Video of Globus ToursYou want to see the world, but you don't know where to begin? Well, we're Monograms and we began along time ago – putting all of the planning, arranging and coordinating into an all-in-one package. In fact, the work is done. It's time to start crossing sights off your list. It's time to turn "someday" into "today." It's time to just go. And enjoy once in a lifetime experiences.


MONOGRAMS PACKAGES
- We plan. You play.


Globetrotting is fun. Research – not so much. With Monograms, we take on the endless hours of organizing and scheduling so you can see the sights, experience new cultures, and dance to new rhythms. From arranging the right hotels and efficient transportation to providing your own Local Hosts® and included sightseeing, we've thought of – and included – everything you need in an all-in-one package. But it doesn't stop there. We're also on the scene at your destination helping you make the most of your time. So you can officially stop planning. And start going.


HAND-SELECTED HOTELS
- We've checked out all of the hotels. You just checkin.


We know the hotels with the best views. We know the hotels closest to ancient history. We even know the hotels with the crispest sheets and the tastiest mints. We've carefully screened and selected just the right hotels in the heart of the your destination. And, on most packages, we give you a choice so you can match your personal travel style. Whether you prefer stately or trendy, you'll be close to the sights, shops and sidewalks that matter, and well rested to enjoy them all.


VIP SIGHTSEEING PLUS YOUR CHOICE EXCURSIONS
- We skip the lines (and you can, too).

When you know the ropes of travel, you also know how to get in front of them. We not only help you arrange the world's greatest travel experiences, but we also provide VIP access – minimizing lines and wait times. Our relationships throughout the world mean you quickly connect with your destination. And once you've enjoyed included sightseeing and orientation in each city, we then help you personalize your vacation by adding your own set of activities and excursions throughout your encounter. After all, we're called Monograms for a reason.


LOCAL HOSTS
- Everyone loves an insider.


Who has the strongest espresso in town? What street has the hippest boutiques? Where's the quietest spot to view the sunset? Your Local Host® knows! Throughout your Monograms vacation, we provide you with a friendly, knowledgeable insider in each destination to offer hints and recommendations, steer you off the beaten path, and help you maximize every moment of your time. No other travel company offers this accessible wealth of information. So there's no wandering around hoping you'll stumble upon a local gem. Your Monograms Local Host will lead you right to them.


TRANSPORTATION
- Your rides here. And its included.


On a Monograms vacation, we believe the adventure is in the sightseeing, not the drama of getting from Point A to Point B. Whether it's flight arrangements, transfers from the airport to your hotel, sightseeing, or traveling between cities, we take care of your transportation needs and can include it in your package price. No hailing cabs in a foreign language. No holding up the line confused at the subway station. We pick you up. And drop you right where you want to be.


Included Hotels

Vacations to Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and Africa include breakfast. Breakfast is a buffet (B) and is listed on each itinerary page. In North America we do not include breakfast. Your Local Host® can assist in recommending local favorites or you can simply explore on your own!


Dining in Style

In general, lunches and dinners are not included in your Monograms vacation. Your Local Host® will have a number of suggestions for dining—after all, one of the best ways to learn about other cultures is to eat like the locals do!

On some travel days in remote regions, on cruises, and at some resorts we include lunches and dinners. Please check the included section on the vacation page for a list.

Unlike an airline, we cannot process requests for special meals. While some hotels and restaurants may be able to provide for a special diet, such as vegetarian or salt-free food, there is no way for us to guarantee this. Special food usually costs extra. Please ask your Local Host® for assistance


Add Flights To Your Vacation

Let Monograms book the flight that will perfectly coordinate with your travel package—at a price that fits your vacation plans. Monograms has joined with airline partners to offer you low roundtrip airfares that coincide with your Monograms vacation. Upgrade to Business Class for even more comfort. No need to waste time searching the Internet for the lowest airfare—one call to Monograms does it all. Another benefit of booking your Monograms vacation air-inclusive is that the transfers to and from the airport to your start and end hotels are included.


Airport Transfers

If you have purchased an air-inclusive vacation (on published dates), arrival and departure transfers are included. When you touch down in your destination, we’ll get you to your hotel; then, at the end of your vacation, we’ll make sure to get you to the airport for your return flight home. If you reserve a land-only Monograms vacation, you can still purchase arrival and departure transfers. Transfers are by scheduled shuttle, minivan, private cars, or taxi.


More Air Info

Our Air-Inclusive Prices Provide Exceptional Value
Because of our longstanding relationships with major air carriers, our air-inclusive prices provide exceptional value. These prices are considerably lower than what you would pay if you booked your land arrangements and unrestricted air transportation separately.


Airfares

We offer low airfares for all of the destinations in this brochure from cities across the U.S. Call our Travel Consultants for information. Ask about Premium Economy and Business Class upgrades (excludes North America vacations).

Various domestic and international taxes and fees are not included in the vacation price. These taxes and fees will be added to your air-inclusive invoice as a single, per person charge. Taxes and fees are subject to change without notice and will be quoted at time of booking (please see the “Applicable Airfare Taxes & Fees” section that follows). Please be advised that electronic tickets will be issued for the majority of air itineraries.

Please retain your ticket copy and boarding passes in the event you need them later for proof of your flights (to accumulate frequent flyer miles, for example). We are unable to supply ticket copies after your return.


Guaranteed Air-Inclusive Prices

An additional $250 non-refundable deposit is required for air booked in conjunction with any land vacation (i.e., air-inclusive vacation). However, once your airfare is confirmed and Monograms has received your full air and land deposit, your air-inclusive vacation price is guaranteed. Air is only available to passengers traveling from the United States and only available when booked in conjunction with a land vacation.

Monograms reserves the right to ticket passengers upon receipt of full land and air deposit thus any subsequent changes and/or revisions to airline reservations at your request after receipt of full land and air deposit are subject to revision fees and/or airline imposed change or cancellation fees. Generally, these fees are up to $250 but in some instances may be up to 100% of the ticketed price. Please ask if any such charges apply before making changes, as all changes at your request are payable by you.

We Also Accept Your Reservation on a Land-Only Basis
Although our air-inclusive pricing offers superb value, we still want to give you freedom of choice. You may purchase our vacation packages on a land-only basis.


Free Airport Transfers

When you book your Monograms vacation air-inclusive, the transfers from the airport to your start hotel and from your end hotel to the airport are included. Details are as follows:


Air-inclusive on published dates:

◦Europe, South America, Asia, South Pacific, and Africa – Transfers are included
◦North America – Transfers are included on Single-City Getaways, Multi-City Getaways, and Rail Getaways
Air-inclusive on non-published dates:

◦Europe – Transfers are available for purchase when you book extra nights with Monograms before or after your vacation
◦Asia, South America, South Pacific, and Africa – Transfers are included
◦North America – Transfers are included on Single-City Getaways, Multi-City Getaways, and Rail Getaways
Land-only clients who make their own air arrangements on regularly scheduled direct flights (but not chartered flights) may also purchase arrival and departure transfers. In South America, arrival and departure transfers are included for land-only clients.

Flight details should be sent apart from other correspondence or payment and must be received no later than five weeks prior to departure.

Transfers will be provided only if confirmed by Monograms. Look for confirmation of your transfer in the travel documents.


Taxes & Fees

Taxes and fees are subject to change and are not guranteed until land and air deposit are received.


Applicable Airfare Taxes & Fees
Air-inclusive prices do not include a September 11th Security Fee of up to $10, passenger facility charges of up to $18, Federal domestic flight segment fees of up to $3.50 per segment, and U.S. and International arrival and departure and other government imposed fees of up to $200-$375, depending on your itinerary. Your final air-inclusive vacation price for departures in this brochure is not guaranteed until your air schedule has been confirmed and your full air and land deposit have been received by Monograms.

$11 Million of Travel Protection

Globus has provided a $10 million letter of credit* issued by a leading bank to protect payments made by its customers for all 2005 vacation departures sold in the United States. "In these uncertain times, we feel it is important to assure our customers and our travel partners that we are financially secure and that we back our products 100 percent," said Phillip Gordon, chief executive officer and president. This is in addition to the $1 million traveler's assistance program maintained by the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) in favor of Globus travelers.

*The $10 million letter of credit has been issued by Credit Suisse S.A. in favor of PRO-CLAIM, INC. of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, acting as trustee of a trust for the benefit of Globus and Cosmos customers who advance deposits or payments for any Globus or Cosmos tour departure sold in the United States. PRO-CLAIM INC., as trustee of the trust, is responsible for refunding deposits or payments (excluding deposits or payments made by credit cards, since chargebacks are available), for Globus and Cosmos tours sold in the United States in the event Group Voyagers Inc., d/b/a Globus and Cosmos, becomes insolvent, bankrupt or ceases business.
 

Worldwide Scope

Globus is truly a worldwide operation with 32 offices around the world to assist travelers. Booking Globus vacations is always simple due to a network of over 13,000 knowledgeable travel agencies offering Globus vacations. Globus is also offered by some of the most well known travel consortia, such as Vacation.com.

Travel Protection

You're planning your annual vacation, or the vacation of a lifetime. Either way you don't want to think about canceling or interrupting your trip. Or getting sick. Or losing your luggage. We know these things can happen and we provide travelers peace of mind with a Travel Protection Plan. The plan costs from $79-$249 per person (depending on the vacation destination and price) and offers a wide range of benefits. Ask your travel agent for the details, get the details in your travel documents or follow the link below.

Please note that the Czech Republic now requires a minimum of $35,000 medical and repatriation insurance coverage. Our basic Travel Protection policy has a $25,000 limit, however will be increased to $35,000 while in the Czech Republic in order to meet Czech Republic requirements. There is no additional cost for this extra coverage. If you choose to purchase insurance independently, please know that the you may be required by immigration to produce proof of coverage while traveling in the Czech Republic.

Travel Protection Plus (Cancellation Protection)


If you purchase the Globus family of brands Travel Protection Plan, you may also purchase the optional Globus family of brands Travel Protection Plus Plan at an additional cost of only $30.00 per person. This additional Benefit* (if purchased) allows you to cancel your vacation up to 24 hours (or the prior business day, whichever is farther out) before your scheduled departure for any reason not covered by the basic Travel Protection Plan provisions. Under this Travel Protection Plus Plan Benefit, Globus family of brands will reimburse the cancellation penalty amount, as retained by the Globus family of brands, in travel certificates, minus the insurance premium. Plus, now Travel Protection Plus extends your basic Travel Protection Plan benefits to include coverage of air penalties or change fees on air purchased outside of the Globus family of brands, when canceling for a reason covered by your basic Travel Protection Plan.

*The Travel Protection Plus Plan is provided by Globus family of brands and is not an insurance benefit and must be purchased with the initial payment for your Trip.
ASK YOUR AGENT ABOUT DETAILS.

Globus recognizes the importance of preserving the North American attractions that our travelers go to great lengths to experience, which is why Globus is donating generously to the Tourism Cares for Tomorrow for restoration and preservation of five "American Icons." The donations are going toward specific projects, rather than operational costs.

Awards

For six years in a row, Globus has been selected by Recommend Magazine as the best Tour Operator to Europe, and a top finalist for North America, Asia, Latin America and Africa. The brand was also named in Travel Weekly's 2004 Reader's Choice Awards as Best Tour Operator - Europe and 2005 Reader's Choice Awards as Best Tour Operator - Europe, Best Tour Operator - International and Best Tour Operator - Asia and South Pacific.
