Evaneos connects travelers with local travel agencies based around the world to create authentic, 100% tailor-made tours. As the pioneer of the direct-to-local platform in the travel industry, we know how important it is for travelers to feel safe and supported at every step of the way, and have helped over 300,000 travelers set off on the trip of their dreams.
Which is why Evaneos provides the following guarantees to ensure that your entire Evaneos experience runs smoothly and securely:
Secure online payment: Each and every trip payment is required to go through Evaneos' secure payment platform, so all transactions are carried out safely. Once you have made a payment for your trip via the Evaneos website, this money is completely protected.
Trip replacement or reimbursement: We take the safety and happiness of our travelers very seriously. All of the local agents featured on our website are licensed professionals who have been rigorously vetted by our in-house team. We only want to provide the highest quality service to our travelers, which is why we only partner with around 9% of the agencies who send us applications. In the unlikely event that a local agency were to cancel your trip after your deposit has been paid, however, Evaneos commits to replacing these services with one of our other local agencies so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing this, your trip will be refunded.
Carefully-selected local agencies: An entire team is dedicated to vetting and monitoring Evaneos' local agencies. All of the travel agents on our website are English-speaking licensed professionals who specialize in creating tailor-made tours. Only around 9% of the agencies who send us applications pass our rigorous selection criteria.
We're a member of ASTA: Evaneos is a proud member of ASTA, (American Society of Travel Agents), which means that we commit to a strict Code of Ethics that includes accuracy, disclosure, and resolution of complaints should any issues arise during your Evaneos experience. To find out more about ASTA’s Code of Ethics and how it applies to you, please click here.
Honest traveller feedback: Once a traveler has returned home from their trip, they will receive a post-trip feedback form from Evaneos to fill-in if they wish to give us feedback from their experience. In this form, we ask our travelers to provide comments about their trip, their experience with Evaneos, and their local agent, to assist others in making informed decisions when browsing our website. All reviews, unedited, where the traveler has requested to publish the review are uploaded onto the Evaneos website to give an informed over view of each agency.
A dedicated Customer Care Team: As well as benefiting from 24:7 on-site assistance provided by your local agency once you are in the destination, Evaneos' Customer Care Team is on-hand to assist you throughout every stage of your journey. Should you have any further questions, you can contact us here.
