What are the Travel Forums?
Tauck's Travel Forums are community message boards, where members can meet and greet fellow travelers, share stories, and learn about Tauck destinations. It is not a chat room, where you converse online in real-time. Our Travel Forums enable you to post a question or observation and receive a reply from another community member.
Make Tauck's Travel Forums a vital part of planning your trip. Post a question to other Travel Forum members to receive insider destination information from our guests. Return to the Travel Forums after your trip and re-live the Tauck experience! Visit often to share points of interest and answer questions from other members.
Why must I register?
Anyone is welcome to visit the Travel Forums as a guest. However, before you can participate and post messages, we ask that you become a member of the community. To do this, you must log in to our registration page. There is no limit to the number of times you may visit as a guest without registering.
What are the benefits of creating a Tauck Profile?
How do I register?
Create a username and password, and then enter your email address and postal code in the space provided. The rules for creating passwords are pretty straightforward. Choose something that is easy for you to remember and is difficult for others to guess. The password must contain both letters and numbers, and must be between 7-35 characters in length. The remaining contact information, preferences, and profile sections are optional.
I used to be a member of Ask & Share; why must I re-register?
In order to make your visit to our website more convenient, we’re offering an upgrade to your membership — the “Tauck Profile." Please click Register, located in the top right corner of every page of the Website. Please select a new Username and Password, and complete the required information to create an account. Optionally, you can continue the registration process by creating a personal avatar and creating your contact preferences.
What kind of behavior is expected of Travel Forum members? Are there any rules?
Tauck invites its visitors to our Travel Forum message boards to participate and express themselves by sharing experiences, posting photos and asking questions regarding any of Tauck's destinations.
Messages discussing the purchase of Tauck journeys or the mention of specific travel agencies are not the intention of the Travel Forums and are not permitted. Tauck's Travel Forums are not the place to express concern over policies and practices of Tauck, Inc. The Travel Forums are not customer relations or customer service tools. Messages that address a specific Tauck Director or Tauck employee by name are not permitted. Please express any specific concerns you may have by contacting Tauck at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our friendly and helpful personnel are eager to assist you.

How do I change my Tauck Profile?
Once you are logged in, click on "Edit Profile." This link is found in the top right navigation located on every page of the website. From here, you can enhance your forum profile, manage your personal information, and sign-up for our free travel e-Newsletter.
What is an avatar?
A graphical image, photo, or personification, used to create a friendly community atmosphere. Your avatar is optional. If you decide to identify yourself with an avatar, it will appear on your Travel Forum posts.
How do I save my password?
The new Travel Forums do not remember passwords. Instead, it affords you the opportunity to remain logged-in indefinitely. A click box is provided on the login page for this purpose.
I forgot my Password. How do I get a new one?
Passwords are encrypted for your security, and therefore cannot be retrieved and sent via email. If you have lost your password, please click the "Forgot Password?" link on the Login page. There, please specify your email address in the space provided, and an email will be sent to your account. Access your email, and click on the link included. This will redirect you to our site, where you will be prompted to choose a new password. Please choose one that you can more easily remember.
I was typing a message in the Travel Forums, and when I tried to post it, I could not. What happened?
There are several reasons this might have occurred, but here are two common causes: First, you might have used the name of a Tauck Employee or Tauck Director in your message. As our rules explain, these messages are not permitted and are blocked. Second, you may have been typing for a long time, and your session timed out. Once you begin a message, you have twenty (20) minutes to post before you are logged-off of the Travel Forums. This is a technology standard that we use to protect the security of the site. If you continue to have trouble, please Contact Us.
