Premier World Discovery

For 2023 we feature five Premier World Discovery tours. Here’s how they are like our other tours:

  • We include local departure from Champaign.

  • We get you checked in at O'Hare, and then the Premier tour director meets you after your flight’s arrival.

Additional benefits with Premier World Discovery:

  • A $100 per person discount if you pay your balance owed by check

  • A $100 per person Compass Club discount when you take another Premier World Discovery tour or cruise within 24 months.

  • We must book no minimum number of travelers for the tour to "go." We join with travelers booked by Premier around the USA and together they nearly always get enough to meet the minimum for the tour group to operate. 

Here’s how they are different. The following are not included and are optional:

  • Travel insurance*

  • Tour staff or cruise crew tips

  • Baggage checking on the airline (note that international baggage check is free, but that can change).

See the What’s Not Included section for these costs.​

We elected to “unbundle” these costs because most companies do not include them. This allows you to compare our package prices fairly.

Most tour companies do not include local departure from Champaign, so this is a valuable extra benefit by going with us!

Any Reason Cancellation & Insurance Benefit Option

*There are Any Reason cancellation benefits of Premier World Discovery’s Travel Protection Plan and is summarized below:
