Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE THE ADMINISTRATION & GIFT TO RESORT FEES?
Fitness Vacation Exchange charges an administration fee which covers the arrangement of your fitness vacation exchange, correspondence between resorts, finalizing of reservation dates, airport pickup coordination (with host resorts that offer this service), and general instructor support.
CHANGE FEE POLICY
Fitness Vacation Exchange encourages INSTRUCTOR to choose travel dates and locations confidently. If INSTRUCTOR cannot travel or has to change dates, the INSTRUCTOR must contact Fitness Vacation Exchange so another instructor can be appointed.
INSTRUCTOR will incur a $150 change fee per week for any changes in resort or travel dates.
GIFT FUND FEE
Approved FVE instructors are also required to pay into a resorts gift fund. Please note that instructors may be asked to deliver gifts to the host resort for given partners.
Fitness Vacation Exchange has established a gift fund component as a gesture of appreciation to our participating host resort partners for hosting an FVE instructor at their resort. Each host resort is provided a weekly gift fund when hosting an FVE instructor, this fund may vary per resort and is clearly notated within by clicking on the resort's tab on the FVE website. Each resort is able to utilize their collected gift funds for the purchase of items the resort may need to improve their guest experience.
Gift items are resort specific. At times, the gift items in which the host resort has requested are difficult to find, or too expensive to purchase in the resort's home country. All gifts received are greatly appreciated by the host resort.
Fitness Vacation Exchage will purchase all gifts requested by the host resort and ship them to the residence of the traveling instructor prior to their departure. Traveling instructors will receive information from FVE that specifies what gift items are being shipped to their residence. Instructors are able to open the package(s) shipped to their residence.
Please email Reservations@FitnessVacationExchange.com for any questions regarding the gift fund fee.
