A Message from CIE Tours CEO Elizabeth Crabill

We welcome a new year looking forward to the prospect of once again being able to journey abroad. While travel has been on pause, we have been busy adjusting our operations and expanding our travel options to ensure the health, safety, and peace of mind of our guests. For 2021, we have a wide variety of travel options that support smaller groups, more space to spread out, and flexibility to change plans.

Transformation and evolution have always been part of our success; with each challenge our company has emerged revived, updated, and stronger than ever. And this past year has been no different. We are primed and ready for when it is time to return to travel.

As we enter a new season of travel the one thing that has not changed is our passion for travel and commitment to great value. We can’t wait to once again be doing what we love most – sharing the beauty and magic of Ireland and Britain with our guests.

Travel might look a bit different in 2021, but our CIE Tours family in the U.S., Ireland and Britain is ready to provide each guest with a safe and memorable trip of their dreams.

We look forward to traveling with you again soon – until then stay safe and healthy.

Travel Update (as of 02/15/2021)

    • CIE Tours will rebook you on a future tour anytime through December 31, 2021 with no cancellation fees or penalties
    • For guests rebooking on the same tour series for a new departure date, any price increase for the future date will be waived.
    • If the new trip selected is a different tour series or destination and the price is higher, guest will be responsible for the difference.
    • If the new trip selected is at a lower price, no refund will be issued for the difference.
  • OR Receive a Voucher for Future Travel – Don’t yet know which future date or tour you want?
