Effective January 1, 2015, a new OPC Travel Policy goes into effect. Please note two changes:
- Nonresident Fee: Leisure Travel has always been open to everyone 50+ regardless of residency. A nonresident does not have to pay the annual nonresident fee to travel. However, new for 2015, they will be charged an additional $10 fee for day trips.
- Transferability: If you purchased a ticket and can no longer go, you can transfer the ticket to another person (new for 2015). The persons’ name on the OPC voucher (ticket) is the owner, regardless if they purchased it or not. Only the owner of the voucher can give/sell/transfer the OPC voucher to another person under OPC guidelines as follows:
- The new traveler must be 50+ years of age.
- The Leisure Travel Department must be notified by calling 248-659-1030, by the person whose name is on the voucher (ticket), of the name and address of the new traveler, a minimum of 24 hours prior to the trip departure. The travelers name must be on the roster.
- If a voucher is transferred to a nonresident who is not a member, they must pay an additional $10 fee prior to trip departure.
- In the event of a waiting list, OPC will sell the voucher, if possible, to someone on the list and refund the owner.
- OMW’s are non-transferrable.
