Due to the ever-changing and overwhelming impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are experiencing an unprecedented increase in service requests from Customers, resulting in exceedingly long wait times. We are truly sorry for this situation and ask for your patience during this time.

If you are not traveling within the next 72 hours, please wait before contacting us. To best serve our Customers, we will continue to provide the latest updates from our airline partners and destination government agencies. Please review the list of destination closures below. It is important to review your vacation package information as the situation is changing frequently.

We are dedicating every resource possible to help our Customer Care Team navigate this turbulent time. We hope you understand that we have your best interest at heart and are doing everything possible to help you as quickly as we can.

Southwest Vacations is aware that government mandates have resulted in restrictions on travel in some destinations due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Unfortunately, many of the restrictions will result in flight and hotel cancellations, and we sincerely regret any inconvenience created by the travel disruptions.

Notifying affected Customers: Taking care of you

Once Southwest Vacations becomes aware of any government’s travel restriction that results in a flight or hotel cancellation, our Team will send an email with rebooking instructions to affected Customers. Rest assured, we will be offering maximum flexibility and accommodating Customers to the best of our ability. As always, the Southwest Vacations Team appreciates your patience and trust in us during this unprecedented time.

If you have not already cancelled your trip and it falls within these travel dates, we will cancel the trip for you and issue a travel credit for the full amount*  of your cancelled trip. You  do not  need to contact us regarding your cancellation or travel credit. We will reach out to you with more information once the travel credit is processed. 

If you purchased your vacation using Uplift, you will receive a travel credit that reflects the total trip cost; however, you will need to continue your payments until you satisfy the loan amount. If you purchased your vacation using our Deposit Program, any outstanding payments will be voided and your travel credit will be for the amount paid thus far. 

*Travel credit will not include the cost of travel protection, if purchased.
