How Long Do My Tours Stay Live?
Your tours stay live for a maximum of 1 year. However we don't just delete these, we will contact you to see if the listing is still live. When you build your tour, it is in "Pending" status until you publish it. All tours have a maximum of 48 hours before they by default go into a disabled status. This allows you to run your tour past your vendor and then publish it live. We understand that in some cases it takes a bit longer to get the go ahead. Disabled Tours can be easily put back online, however you will need to contact support.
