No, Golf Trip Junkie does not book flights at this time. We find that the majority of people want to book their own flights, often times using points from their rewards programs. However, we do book private charter flights, exclusively from Golf Trip Junkie, to our valued customers with a company that exceeds the highest of industry safety standards.
The deposit is no more than $100 per golfer. In some cases, such as Pebble Beach golf vacations, it will be more, however, the lower the better. You will be informed of the required deposit when you receive your golf vacation quote. The deposit confirms and holds your golf vacation reservation until 30 days out from day of arrival.
In general, resort wear is expected. Golf shoes (we suggest spikeless) and collared shirts are required at all times for men. Shorts are acceptable; however, courses with strict dress codes expect shorts to be at least 16" in length. Please do not wear jeans, cut-offs, tank tops, or sneakers. For women, we recommend golf shoes with socks, collared shirts, and slacks, shorts, or golf skirts.
Golf Trip Junkie’s golf experts are on hand during office hours to assist you. In almost all instances there are no change fees. We don't like them! If there ever is one that we can't avoid, when working with a partner of ours, you will be notified prior to the change. In those cases, we still do our best to avoid them. Like we said, we don't like them.
Your golf package will include hotel accommodations, confirmed tee times, green fees, and shared golf cart, as well as all appropriate taxes (unless otherwise noted). At this time, for United States golf destinations we do not book car rentals, however, we encourage you to take advantage of up to 35% savings with our partners at Avis and Budget Car Rental (See Car Rentals in navigation bar). For European travel, car rental or private transportation is included in your golf packages, unless otherwise noted.
Green fee refunds or Pro Shop credits will be given, by the golf courses, or refunded by Golf Trip Junkie, once notified by the resort or golf courses, for any closures due to inclement weather. If there are rainy conditions while the course is still open for play, refunds will not be granted. At all times, the issuing of refunds or credits are at the sole discretion of the Pro Shop Staff.
All cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations will be assessed cancellation penalties imposed by the hotel, golf courses, and/or car rental companies (for International travel). It is important to note that some hotels and golf courses have non-refundable desposits and strict cancellation policies, many of which vary from one golf destination to the next. In all cases, upon receipt of your quote and confirmed golf package, you will be informed of these policies.
No refunds will be made for unused portions of the golf package once any part is used. Once checked in, any unused portions of your golf vacation package are not eligible for a refund. In the instances of vouchers, no refunds will be issued if vouchers are received later than 90 days past the voucher date. No refunds will be made for unused portions of the package once any part is used.
We accept most major credit cards including American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, etc., and U.S. currency in the form of money orders and certified/cashier checks. Late payments (within 14 days of arrival date) must be in the form of a certified check or credit card. All payments are made to Golf Trip Junkie for the complete package including all surcharges (unless otherwise noted).
For most golf packages, the balance for the entire package is due no later than 30 days prior to your day of arrival. In some cases this will vary, however, you will be informed of the terms. When it is 30 days prior to the day of your arrival, it assures that all necessary vouchers (in the instances vouchers are used) will be delivered to your mailing address at least seven days prior to your scheduled date of arrival. Late payments or bookings made within 14 days of arrival may be assessed a $35 express charge to ensure overnight document delivery. International express charges may vary by destination. If you choose, your account may be automatically billed the outstanding balance 30 days prior to travel. Please ask Golf Trip Junkie for more details.
