Health and Safety Protocols for Cosmos Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Cosmos' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Cosmos has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Cosmos' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Cosmos' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Cosmos will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Cosmos will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Cosmos' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Cosmos will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Cosmos' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Cosmos removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Cosmos are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Cosmos will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Cosmos' commitment to clean, Cosmos is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Cosmos has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

The tour was a great experience, the only thing was that some of the hotels, especially the ones in france, nice was not so great. the meals included in the tour were not tasty but other than that the trip was amazing.

Its a busy tour but see and do lots. Was very good and would recommend to others.

Too fast pace for senior citizens many hills and steps to climb there is not enough time after breakfast to relax and get to the bus I didn't realize that morning call was between 6 and 7ami was too tired to walk and have leisure time to browse the stores it was not a relaxing trip one day the bus drove 10 hours to Rome the extra excursion were great and food was very good except too much chicken the trip was too high pacePlus plus the language barrier was hard to Understand the tour guides I would not go on another tour if you paid me

Cristian, our tour director was very organized. This trip is quite tough and has many itineraries but he managed to get us all together well. Everything went very well that everyone in the group got along great that we are all looking forward to travel again together if possible. Giordano, the driver was great too! We felt very safe. I am so glad I booked his trip with cosmos.

Billy, our tour guide and our driver Anthony ( Anthonello) are both awesome!

Our tour director was outstanding and although a couple of the hotel were not to our liking, overall the tour was a successful and enjoyable one.

Some of the optional tours should have been included in the regular tour like the Vatican museum.

I have used Affordadable Tours to book Cosmos tours on several occasions and it has always been seamless. This trip was an excellent itinerary with knowledgeable guides. I always feel safe and informed on my trips with Cosmos, and it is an amazing value for the money.

My husband and I had a wonderful time :-) we will strongly recommend this tour to our friends and family.

The tours offered on this trip were amazing!

We had a very nice trip. We met people from different countries. Our tour director checked everyone departure flights. Made sure they were on time. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!

The tour director and driver made our experience complete. Cosmos is very lucky to have such amazing staff members.
