Travel Advisories

Updated: 2/13/16

Zika Virus Travel Policy:

Dedicated Vacation Flights: Pregnant women and their traveling companions on the same booking may change their vacation to another date or destination, and Travel Impressions’ change fees will be waived. Any increase in package cost will be the responsibility of the vacationer. In accordance with Travel Impressions’ FTC, cancellation penalties will apply and will be returned in the form of a vacation certificate for future travel. A doctor’s note on official letterhead must be provided. Vacation certificates will be issued after the doctor’s note is received and will be valid for 24 months from the date of cancellation. Group bookings of six rooms or more have special restrictions; contact our Groups department at or by dialing 800-284-0044, option 6. For standard non-group bookings, contact Reservations to change or cancel at 800-284-0044.

Scheduled Air and Land-Only Packages: Some scheduled airlines and hotels are allowing cancellation or changes for passengers traveling to affected destinations. Travel Impressions will honor scheduled airline policies and will make every effort to reduce hotel penalties. Travel Impressions will waive its own change and cancel fees for scheduled air and land-only travel, but will enforce any airline or hotel penalties. Allowed refunds will be issued to the original form of payment. A doctor’s note on official letterhead must be provided.

As always, passengers with the Cancel for Any Reason Waiver, provided by Travel Impressions, may cancel for any reason. Passengers will receive refund in their original form of payment (less the non-refundable Cancel for Any Reason Waiver plan payment). For standard non-group bookings, contact Reservations to change or cancel at 800-284-0044.

Dengue Fever Advisory:

HONOLULU – George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority, issued the following statement to inform travelers about the state of emergency declared by the County of Hawaii for Hawaii Island on February 8.

“Travelers should not be alarmed by the County of Hawaii’s state of emergency declaration for Hawaii Island or allow this decision to alter their travel plans to any of the Hawaiian Islands. This declaration is a good strategic move by the County of Hawaii, as it will provide government officials with additional funding and resources to eliminate dengue fever from Hawaii Island.

“As of today, 252 people on Hawaii Island have become ill by dengue fever over the past five months, of which 24 have been visitors. The rate of confirmed cases has been declining since January and, currently, only one case is considered infectious. Moreover, most of the dengue fever cases on Hawaii Island have been confined to the rural southwestern region. No locally acquired cases of dengue fever have been found on any other island of Hawaii.

“It’s important to note that no health organization has advised against traveling to the Hawaiian Islands at any time since the outbreak of dengue fever began on Hawaii Island. Travelers should also take note that Hawaii Governor David Ige has chosen not to issue a statewide emergency proclamation since none of the conditions for doing so have been realized.”

DOH is encouraging residents and travelers to visit its website for the most up-to-date information about the situation and how to prevent mosquito bites: http://health.hawaii.gov/docd/dengue-outbreak-2015/.
