Hygiene 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.
Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
The tour was everything I expected and more. Both our tour director and driver were professional, helpful, and friendly. We had some weather issues, but Cosmos/tour managers were able to get around it in a way that did not distract from out tour experience.
The trip was wonderful, our guide was outstanding.
The tour director and bus driver were both excellent. Our tour director was a native Texan (for the Texas tour) and the bus driver a native of New Orleans so we had their personal insights as well as the standard info. Both were very personable as well as helpful and professional. They added a few free perks to the standard program, such as a visit to the San Jacinto monument and the visit to a picturesque restaurant and a visit to see the bats near Fredericksburg. This trip was well worth the money ; the hotels exceeded my expectations and were all very comfortable.
The driver and tour director were exceptionally good. Except for Ramada Inn, accommodations were good. However, restaurants were not in walking distance for some of them. Drury Inn provides limited free food and free drinks, a plus. Some sites could be changed (in process now).
This was another great trip. Now I'm looking forward to my E. Europe Globus tour starting June 22, 2014.
