Duke Travels FAQs

I am not an alumnus/ae of Duke University. Can I still travel with you?

Yes—you certainly may! Duke Travels is pleased to welcome family and friends of Duke University even if they are not alumni.

If I join the waitlist for a particular trip, do I have to place a deposit to hold my spot?

No—in order to join the waitlist, you simply need to call us at 919-684-2988. After you have joined the waitlist, you will be contacted it space becomes available on the trip.

My desired trip says it is available for “pre-registration”? What does that mean?

“Pre-registration” means that a trip is actively taking deposits, whereby the final itinerary and price are still subject to change by the tour operator. By paying your deposit and pre-registering for a trip, you hold your space(s) until the brochure and final pricing becomes available. When available, you may review and then choose to either receive a full refund of your deposit or re-confirm you booking. If you reconfirm, the cancelation policy outlined in the brochure begins to take effect.

If your next trip is currently in “pre-registration” phase, please call at 919-684-2988 to sign up!
