The mission of the Aggie Adventures travel program is to provide travel opportunities that combine adventure, culture and education to alumni, family and friends of UC Davis and the University of California community.
Aggie Adventures is designed for those who have the university in common and who are lively, inquisitive and eager to broaden their cultural and intellectual horizons. All tour members are expected to enjoy group travel and be tolerant of the occasional changes, delays or minor mishaps that are to be expected from any kind of travel. Cal Aggie Alumni Association sponsorship means each tour operator has met our criteria for financial responsibility, established reputation, professional staff, quality of operation and all-around dependability. CAAA adds UC Davis connections where possible through lecturers, contact with overseas alumni, pre-departure briefings, staff coordination with tour operators, association hosts, etc. Prices are competitive and often advantageous.
Eligibility and Membership
At least one participant of each traveling party must be a CAAA member to participate in the Aggie Adventures Travel Program. A traveling party is defined as a member, spouse and child[ren] under age 21 or a member and a guest. Membership dues of $60 establish an annual membership with all association benefits. Travelers do not need to be alumni of UC Davis to join CAAA. Membership dues are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Reservations are to be sent directly to the tour operator and are accepted in the order in which they are received. Specific travel program brochures are typically available eight months before departure. Your deposit signifies your acceptance of the final brochure terms. Balance of payment is due according to the schedule established by the tour operator, typically 75 days prior to departure. General terms and conditions are specific to each tour operator.
Aggie Adventures trips are designed primarily for adults who are interested in the educational and cultural aspects of travel. Some Aggie Adventures programs may be suitable for older children who have the necessary curiosity and interest. The advertised price must be paid for all children, regardless of age, and a parent or guardian must accompany those under 18.
On all tours, a limited number of single spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis for an additional fee. Tour operators will try to assist single travelers who want to share accommodations in finding a roommate, but if no roommate can be found, the single supplement fee will apply.
Participants in the Aggie Adventures Travel Program must be in good physical and mental health, and be able to keep up with the pace of the group. Program participants requiring extraordinary assistance must be accompanied by someone who can and will provide all required assistance. Any special requirements must be noted at the time of reservation. Tour Operators will advise travelers of trip activity levels that require specific health requirements.
Cancellation and Refunds
The initial deposit for all tours is 100 percent refundable up to approximately eight months before departure. After this time, tour participants are subject to cancellation policies governing the particular trip in which they are enrolled. There are no refunds for unused meals, accommodations, or other included features. Please read the cancellation clause in each trip brochure carefully. Trip cancellation insurance is offered and highly recommended.
