Important notice: Passion Play Oberammergau will be postponed from 2020 to 2022

Issued on 04/09/2020

Because of Covid-19 concerns and precautions, the organizers of the 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play were instructed to postpone the performances by the district administration of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.  The original dates of the Play were 05-16-2020 to 10-04-2020; the new dates are 05-14-2022 to 10-02-2022.

For your Passion Play groups, Kompas is offering three options:

1. Clients who prefer to travel in 20121 (there is however no Oberammergau Passion Play performance in 2021) may choose any Kompas escorted tour or Adriatic cruise in 2021. 
Payment(s) of their original Oberammergau travel package will be applied as a payment to their new Kompas Cruise of Tour which must depart before 12/31/2021.  Any change fees are waived. If the new Tour or Cruise is more expensive, then guests will have to pay the difference in price.  If the new Tour or Cruise is cheaper than the original one, then a future travel credit will be issued for the difference.  That travel credit, which is transferable to someone else, will expire on 12/31/2022.

2. Clients who wish to keep their Oberammergau reservation, will be moved to 2022.  Tickets will be valid for the same day of the week. For example, if clients had tickets for Thursday, June 25, 2020, they can have them converted to tickets for Thursday, June 23, 2022.  Payment(s) of their original Oberammergau travel package will then be applied to the new travel date and vacation package.  Kompas will maintain 2020 pricing for similar dates and travel packages in 2022.

3. Clients who do not wish to travel in 2021, nor to go to Oberammergau in 2022, can receive a (partial) refund or a future travel credit.  Refunds for the Passion Play portion of the travel package is administered by the organizers of the Passion Play.  The ‘advance booking fee’ is not refundable according to the organizers.  The non-Passion play portion of the travel package is governed by the Standard Kompas Terms and Conditions and by previously agreed terms.

Kindly contact your clients and advise them of the above options. Once your clients make their decision, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you.

If you have any questions, or need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
