GOT QUESTIONS? WE HAVE ANSWERS!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can flights from my city be included in my package?

A. Flights for this group trip are not available.

Q. Do roommates have to make their reservations at the same time?

A. It is not necessary for roommates to save their spot at the same time. However, if there is only one person on the reservation who has paid her/his deposit, the single occupancy rate will apply. If and when a roommate books her part of the reservation, the reservation will revert to the double occupancy rate. Please note: Naming your roommate in the comments of a reservation request does not make a reservation eligible for double occupancy. Double occupancy rates apply only when two people on a reservation have paid deposits.

Q. Can I set up a payment plan?

A. The Confirmation-Receipt you will receive when your reservation is confirmed will provide a link to request your payment plan.

Q. Who is Ebony Vacations?

A. Ebony Vacations is the travel agency extension of GoGIRLS! Black Travel Club.

Q. Does GoGIRLS! offer roommate matching?

A. Because each guest is better at selecting a roommate than we are, we do not offer roommate matching. We do post for roommates on the Facebook page so members may contact each other.

Q. If something comes up and I cannot go on the trip, can I get my deposit back?

A. Deposits are nonrefundable.
