What will we do if this happens? What if that happens? 

Due to its popularity, we've had to book the golden eagle train 2 years in advance. Between now and October 2018 lots of things can change - not just in Iran, or in the region, but in the whole world.

We've got a Plan B to allow you to lock in this unique opportunity, whilst giving you peace of mind over all the uncertainties. 

As our departure date draws nearer, we will work with the Golden Eagle head office and their local operators, to assess whether or not the train journey through Iran is still feasible. If the decision is made to continue, then we will go ahead as planned. 

If the train can not go into Iran in October 2018, we will take the train on an epic journey through Europe. We will visit;

  • Hungary
  • Romania
  • Bulgaria
  • Serbia
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Croatia
  • Slovenia and  
  • Italy

This journey is the Golden Eagle's Balkan Odyssey an can be view in more detail HERE

If you do not wish to join us on the alternate route, you will have the opportunity to cancel and receive refunds for all amounts related to the train. Any registration fees paid to Unconventional Conventions will be transferred to a future trip. 

As always, all of our delegates are required to take out travel insurance at the time of booking, so any cancelations due to ill health will be covered. Please note that most insurance policies will not cover cancelations due to changes in conditions in the region of travel. 

This will be one of the most Unconventional journeys we've ever done, and a very unique opportunity to visit Iran. If you think you'd like it, then just book now. This trip will not be repeated.
