Why should I book with Rainbow High Vacations?
Rainbow High Vacations is licensed by the Travel Industry Council of Ontario and has been a long-standing member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association. Our agents are experts in what they do.
Travel (in all forms) for lesbians and gay men is our specialty. We devote much time and energy to keep on top of the latest gay and lesbian travel trends. A lot of effort is taken to organize destinations and experience the vacation options that we think would be of interest to you. We also believe in giving back to our community and support events and groups across North America.
Are all of the packages on Rainbow High Vacations exclusively gay and/or lesbian?
Nope! Almost all WorldPride packages welcome everyone. Some trips will be more appealing to men, and a few trips are reserved for women. Everyone who wants to have a safe and non-judgemental holiday with others who celebrate our diversity is welcome!
What if I don't want a gay holiday? Can Rainbow High Vacations help with regular trips as well?
We know that most of the travel gay men and lesbians opt for are not specifically "gay". You may need a flight for work, to visit friends or family or for a do-it-yourself holiday, and chances are that a car or hotel might come in handy too once you are there. Therefore, we also offer flights, cars, hotels and vacation packages from everyday tour companies - at prices competitive to those you can find at large online travel sites.
How do I book?
Add different packages and tours to your cart based on the number of nights you wish to stay, and whether you are staying in double or single occupancy. If you want to add more than one room to a package or tour, increase the quantity chosen. For Day Trips and attractions, the quantity is based on the number of people who wish to do that particular offering. Once your cart has everything you want in it, proceed to check out to complete the payment form.
When should I book?
It is highly suggested that you book as soon as possible. The maximum number of guests on many trips is very few, in some cases as few as 10 to 15 people. So when group sizes are that, small trips can sell out well in advance of the departure date.
When do I have to pay?
You must pay for your trip in full at the time of booking. Any additional changes will not be charged until confirmed.
Can I add additional travellers?
We offer Triple and Quad occupancy rates for any hotel that can accommodate more than 2 adults in 1 room. Call us at 1-800-387-1240 to book additional hotel guests in the same room.
Should I buy travel insurance?
It is highly recommended that you buy travel insurance. Almost every holiday we offer affects clients with some sort of a non-refundable penalty fee for booking cancellations, especially if it is done closer to the trip date. In many cases, your booking may be fully non-refundable, so you will lose all your money.
While cancellation insurance may not cover every circumstance, it will protect your vacation investment should you have to cancel because of an emergency.
It is usually most economical to purchase package insurance (which includes cancellation insurance) rather than cancellation insurance on its own. To get a quote, phone us toll free at 800.387.1240.
I'm travelling alone; can I still book these trips?
Absolutely. Most trips have a single rate or a single supplement if you are travelling alone. Single rates are listed for all packages and tours. Day Trips and attractions, are sold on a per person basis.
I'm not very 'out'; will I still feel comfortable taking one of these trips?
Whether you are still in the closet or you have been out for decades, one of the big attractions of these trips is that you will be in a comfortable environment with like-minded traveling companions where you will be free to be yourself. Some people like the tours and day trips because it allows them to be more out than they would normally be at home. Other people like some of the other trips simply because being out or not has nothing to do with their enjoyment of the trip. We will be happy to help you find the trip that best suits what you want out of your holiday.
Does Rainbow High Travel offer options for the physically challenged?
Yes. We offer travel for clients of all sorts, so call us at 800.387.1240 for knowledge on booking a customized vacation package that will suit your needs.
What is a gay-friendly hotel?

Do you offer any family-friendly packages - gay or not?
