What is your refund policy (Covid promise) if I book now?
At Usit we are open for bookings for 2021 however, we understand there are some unknowns for travel next year. The positive news is that we have you covered in case of cancellation due to Covid-19. We have launched our COVID REFUND PROMISE, which guarantees that our customers will receive a full refund of monies paid, less a €49 administration fee, if you cannot participate in your booked programme due to a travel restriction(s. Please note that NO ADMIN FEE will apply if the USA Summer programmes do not proceed. Travel restrictions are outlined below:

• DFA (Department for Foreign Affairs) Travel advisory against travel within 14 days of your departure date due to Covid-19.

• Full border closure or restrictions, due to Covid-19, specific to the visa you are entering the country on.

• US Embassy restrictions or closures due to COVID-19 (For USA programmes).

• Visas are not being approved due to COVID19 travel restrictions.

Covid Refunds are subject to an admin fee of €49. For example if you have paid €500 you will receive back €451 in the event of a cancellation that is covered by our Covid Promise. Please note that no admin fee applies for our summer programmes (eg. J1 USA and Camp USA).

What does not constitute a COVID-19 travel restriction.

• Local quarantine rules. Quarantine plans are currently in place in many countries with ever-changing conditions. USIT will inform you of the current quarantine conditions in your travel destination prior to travel.

• Additional costs for COVID-19 tests and quarantine. It is difficult to predict how each country will respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation, however USIT will guide you through any changes.

• If you cannot travel due to a positive COVID-19 test or are asked to quarantine by your local Government. USIT will offer a free date change wherever possible.

• If you decide not to travel for any other reason our normal terms & conditions will apply.
What If I Get Coronavirus While I am in the USA? Will I be covered by insurance?
If you have purchased your travel insurance policy with USIT you will be covered for all medically advised testing & treatment for Covid as well as the regular travel insurance inclusions. If you hold a policy not issued by USIT then you need to check with your provider. We recommend any travel insurance purchased has Covid medical cover abroad included at a minimum.
Other Fees
USIT is not liable for and cannot refund any third-party costs that have been paid by you or on your behalf including police checks, travel costs, medical costs, government visa costs, accommodation, under any circumstances. Certain programmes may require payment of a visa to a Government Immigration department in advance of travel. In this case the refund of any fees paid for the visa will be at the discretion of that Government body. This condition will sit outside our Covid Promise remit & details on this are outlined in the terms & conditions of applicable programmes.
