Denise Swain Oct 02, 2013 at 11:52 AM

I'm planning for 2015. Here is what I'm looking for Grand Canyon + Sedona + Rafting . Which trips meet this criteria, preferably below $1300.

Hi Denise, Here is some information for your advance planning. We have lots of programs that meet some of your criteria. 1076 is the closest to what you want. It includes Prescott, Sedona, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and Western Grand Canyon including a Helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon to a day flat water raft trip. 1062 and 1088 include both Sedona and the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, but do not include a raft trip. 1062 spends more time in Sedona. 8718 is in Sedona one night, two at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, includes a flat water Raft trip in Glen Canyon, but also goes to Monument Valley, Page, Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park. 2805 includes both the raft trip in Glen Canyon, the helicopter ride down to the raft trip in western Grand Canyon, two nights at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon but does not include time in Sedona. Please feel free to call our office at 800-411-3086 to discuss any of these programs.

ROAD SCHOLAR, Can you HELP? No response since Sun Sep 9. Wed, Sep 19...

My RS Student ID # is 606113004, my Conf #7171679, Arizona Tour 1088RJ, Oct 19-25

Hello Road Scholar:

I have been trying for weeks to obtain a response regarding the Trip Cancel, Interr and Delay Insurance. I know you don't have the information, but could you help me with this Berkeley Care Insurance Company?
As I am overseas, I would really be grateful for some good Road Scholar Customer Service to someone who has just purchased a large package I might want to protect: Order Number 7171679, purchased Sep 6.

As you can see, today I have just sent them my 4th Email to try to get a response from them. I would have thought they would want my business! But since Sun Sep 9, I have been awaiting a reply.
My question, basically is:
1. If my plane to the Covered Trip - program is delayed for 6 hours (Page 9, the Brochure), which means I would have to fly out the next day, and would make me miss a whole day of an already-short 6 day program, may I "return home", as they say in their Brochure (Page 9), and be covered for what I paid RS and the Airlines?
OR 2. Would I have to miss "50% of the program" (Page 8, the Brochure) before they reimburse me, even though that means of course that I miss an entire half of the program. That seems unreasonable.

Please, do help me obtain the answer to this.
Thank you very much,
Dr Michael Len

Wed Sep 19, 2012 4th Email, same question. Hello.

Friday, Sep 14, 6:25 PM
Is my question too difficult for you? Let me know, and I will go to another insurance compnay.
Mon Sep 10, 2012 7PM SECOND Request for info. Am worried. 1).I made total payment on Thurs, Sep 6. Does that mean my 5 days to decide to purchase this policy runs to Thurs Sep 13, i.e., 5 "WORKING" days? AND 2). I still wish to know which: "6 hours" OR missing "50% of the program", to be covered for Trip Delay. THANK YOU. Please, help!

My RS Student ID # is 606113004, my Conf #7171679, Arizona Tour 1088RJ, Oct 19-25. Single.

* I worry about air delays.
1. If, as on Page 9: Trip Delay, aircraft is delayed 6 hours, may I cancel? OR:
2. Page 8: I only insured if I miss 50% of the Covered Trip?

So, PLEASE: 1. Clarify re when I may cancel my trip under your coverage.
RS says I must ask you these questions.
Thank you,
Dr Michael Len,
