Trip Payment Options & Reward Program

  1. MONTHLY PAYMENT - PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ provides a convenient and affordable way to reserve your vacation with a low deposit. You pay the balance in MONTHLY installment payments. We accept payments through an Online Account Payment system by credit card, debit card, e-check, bank-to-bank money transfer and ACH. No cash, check or money order is ever accepted.
  2. 5% OFF ONE TIME PAYMENT IN FULL DISCOUNT - We all like to save money...and especially when we're saving on vacation. Take advantage of the payment in full discount to receive a 5% reduction in your vacation package pricing when your balance is Paid In Full within seven (7) days of completing your online reservation. (Cannot be combined with any other discounts.)


Is this an escorted tour? Yes. We will travel with a tour director, who will take care of us throughout our vacation. We will travel by plane, motor coach and ship to pre-selected sites, landmarks and destinations during our trip. That also means that morning departures will normally be at 9:00AM each day, but occasionally there could be an early morning departure

I want to relax on vacation. Can I do that on this tour? This group tour is a mix between sightseeing, cruising and being outdoors. So, if you love being active, meeting new people and seeing new things, then this will be a great trip for you. You will be able to enjoy relaxing "ME" time in the evenings when you return to the hotel, if you skip evening socializing activities with the group. If you want to relax on the beach in a resort-style vacation, there is definitely "down time" to relax on the beach for a few days at the end of our trip so you return home rejuvenated and refreshed, instead of being exhausted.

Can I do my own thing before and after the tour? Absolutely, you can! Our Social Group organizes travel for the group of women but it is by no means a 'must' to be with the group the entire trip. It is your vacation and you can choose to spend it as you like, as long as it does not inconvenience any of the other travel members. Our sisterhood of members travel together as friends, and we encourage you to be as free and independent as possible on your vacation. In the evenings, some of us may go out as a group for dinner, but if you have had enough 'group time' for the day, you can enjoy personal "Me" time to yourself. This is especially needed for people who are introverts and it completely understood. You may even choose to sit out on parts of the group tour and link up again later if you like. Please note that you are liable for the cost of any alternative activities you choose to undertake during your leave and you will not receive a refund for any unused services or food.

How do I make a reservation? You may lock your spot by clicking the link below to complete your reservation form online, on the phone, or in person at one of our Meetup.com Socials.

Are prices based on double occupancy? Yes, PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ vacation packages and retreats are always based on double occupancy; however, we do offer a Single Supplement if you prefer a room to yourself. We do not offer triple or quad room accommodations.

Can you help me secure a roommate if I cannot find one? Yes, many women who sign up for our vacation packages and retreats come alone. PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ is happy to arrange a RoomShare Match upon request, but cannot guarantee one will always be available; neither does PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ guarantee compatibility.

I enjoy my personal space. Can I have a room to myself? Yes, the price is higher for a single room and it can be organized. Please look for the additional single supplement rate at the pricing area.

How do I pay for the trip and what form of payment do you accept? We have various payment options available including credit card, debit card, e-check, bank-to-bank money transfer and ACH; however, no cash, check or money order is ever accepted. An invoice will be emailed to you to pay your initial deposit and subsequent monthly payments. You will receive an updated Account Statement after each payment.

Should I insure my trip and how much does it cost? Proof of out-of-country medical insurance is required to travel with Pumps & Passport. Travel protection coverage is short term insurance intended to protect against “unexpected” travel-related expenses and emergencies, such as cancellation, interruption, medical expenses, evacuation, loss or delay. Travel insurance is highly recommended. You may receive a travel protection quote for your trip here: Travel Protection Quote

What is the personality of the group? PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ strongly promotes positivity among women who desire to connect, engage, travel and explore the world with us. Faithful monthly members of our social group love to connect. Additionally, we attract friendly women who have positive regard and respect for others who are not members but open to making new friends. Our policy is very clear regarding Zero Tolerance for negative attitudes, rudeness, drunkenness, griping, cattiness, profanity, self-centeredness, smoking, etc.

With that being stated, some personalities simply will not fit in comfortably in a group travel environment. If you cannot display positive regard toward others, are unwilling to follow instruction from others or obey the customs of another country or enjoy an independent travel experience without restriction of having to be in a certain place at a certain time, our trips will not be a good fit for you.

***PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ reserves the right to accept, decline or decline to retain any Travel Member based on character, temperament, an uncooperative nature, health, physical readiness, suitability for the adventure, and non-compliance with the trip’s Group Guidelines, Policies, Terms & Conditions.

Can I arrive a day early or extend my stay? Yes, you are welcome to extend your stay; however, it will not be included as part of this trip's package.

If I have additional questions before I complete my online reservation, can I speak with someone? Yes, we courage you to read the trip's Group Guidelines, Policies, Terms & Conditions thoroughly also, since the majority of questions are answered there. Alternatively, we have support staff who are happy to oblige your inquiries at any time leading up to your trip. Dial our business line: (888) 367-9543 or the contact number contained within the Welcome email you received regarding your trip.



PUMPS & PASSPORTS™, a national women's empowerment Meetup group, supports women over 40 who desire to connect, engage, travel and explore the world.

Started in 2014, PUMPS & PASSPORTS™ was founded to answer the call of women around the country with a growing impulse for connection, as empty nesters realize that life does not end after the kids leave home. Women who join our Social Group are intent on making time for themselves to celebrate and live life to the fullest. Our Social Group’s aim is to support women in forging genuine friendships and unite in our desire and love to travel. What has developed is an opportunity to see the world in a community of sisterhood.
