Second Act Travel Program

SIH Travel Policies

Payment is due at time of reservation — call 1.877.480.4040 for reservations. If the traveler cancels after the deadline date, a refund is not issued unless another member can fill the individual’s seat.

It is the responsibility of the The Second Act member to notify the The Second Act office at least 2 weeks prior to the cancellation deadline when he or she has a special need which will require special accommodations in order to allow them to travel. After appropriate notification, all reasonable efforts will be made by the program manager to accommodate the needs of the traveler.

Reservation Policy

When we post NEW trips in the newsletter, each will have a “RESERVATIONS ACCEPTED” note on them. It is our hope that by delaying the registration for a week or so that all members will have an equal opportunity to participate in our travel program.
