Incredibly unprofessional company. Do not book a trip with this company unless you are willing to lose your money.

My sister and I had booked a trip to Bali. With the growing fear and concern of Covid-19 (coronavirus) AND the recommendation from the CDC (center for disease control and prevention), we canceled our trip 17 days prior to departure date. They were completely unwilling to refund us our money and we were asked to pay a load of penalty fees. A customer service representative even recommended that we cancel before the penalty fees increased, so we did.

A few days before our original departure date, we noticed that the company had updated the cancellation policy and penalty fees due to the rising concern over Covid-19. Naturally, we contacted them and asked if they would honor these updated fees. They said no & basically told us that if we had "waited" to cancel, the updated cancellation policy and fees would have applied. Therefore, people that were booked on the same EXACT trip as us were refunded nearly ALL of their money back (IF THEY CANCELLED LAST MINUTE) but those of us who cancelled 1-2 weeks early, lost a lot of our money.

Shame on this company for PROFITING from the fear and danger of a global pandemic.

Just returned from Greece touring Athens and Crete (Chania & Heraklion). Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and excellent every step of the way! Entire trip went smoothly. Our group received excellent care from beginning to end. All transportation and hotels were top notch. The trip was amazing and we would use Affordable World again.

Despite what is going on with the corona virus. Affordable world would not refund or adjust our trip. They claim it’s safe to travel to Bali even though the CDC recommends not traveling. 24 before we leave one of flights gets cancelled and they tell us to figure it out at the airport once we arrive. Currently Groupon is siding with us and trying to get our money back due to the improper service provided. And they have not responded back to them. Do not book with this company.

Glad I went to Thailand and China last year. Guides were great, helpful, and knowledgeable. The accomodations were nicer than I anticipated. Information on baggage (3 places) was a little unclear. I would totally recommend. Single travelers fee was better than other companies.

I did a tour in Thailand in August 2019 and had an amazing experience. The tour guide Audi was excellent!! He made sure that our group was taken care of every step of the way. I look forward to taking family the next time around.
