Health and Safety Protocols for Trafalgar Tours
Trafalgar has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.
You can travel with Trafalgar and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.
In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Trafalgar is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.Expertly Trained Travel Directors
Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Trafalgar will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.Stringent On-the-Road Protocols
The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Trafalgar have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.A Full Team of Support 24/7
It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.Physical Distancing
Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards
Trafalgar is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Trafalgar does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Trafalgar only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.Always in the Know
As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Trafalgar is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.
Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
The combination of the 3-day Sydney stay ahead of the 15-day New Zealand Splendor was perfect. Those first days in Sydney were filled with activities that got us rapidly on the new time zone. New Zealand is so scenic! Our tour guide there was Maori and shared a wealth of insight into the native culture. You should be aware that both tours are operated by the local company AAT Kings, not Trafalgar. However, the service and quality matched or exceeded what we have come to expect from Trafalgar.
Trafalgar is just the most wonderful travel operator - they staff are so kind and generous with their time, they truly make very effort to make you feel as if you are the most important person and your good time is their primary objective - they surprise you throughout the trip with little unexpected treats and stay always close on hand to monitor activities to make sure everyone is smiling and happy - I would not travel with any other service
The value derived from the trip far outweighs the price paid. The hotel accommodations, the food, the optional experience, the hidden gem, the transportation were more than satisfactory. The operator is professional, friendly, safety conscious and enthusiastic.
Trafalgar tours is an excellent company. The tours and people are great and they handle everything. You can never see so much or learn so much on your own.
The trip was much more than we expected! It was very well organized, travel director Brendon was very good, knowledgeable, helpful and everything was explained in detailed to us in every step of all the places we're going! He's awesome as well as our driver Tyson who took care of us iin all our needs! There are no dull moments in the motor coach, we had so much fun!!! Definitely will come back and will recommend Trafalgar! Thanks
This trip was phenomenal and I would definitely recommend it. Trafalgar did an excellent job from start to finish. Tyson, our travel guide, was wonderful. He went above and beyond to make sure our trip was very memorable. The accommodations were very nice, the extra meals were excellent and the itinerary was perfect. We saw some beautiful places. Do not hesitate to take this trip. You will not regret it. We will definitely be booking trips with Trafalgar in the future.
Trafalgar did an excellent job on this tour with a very organized and personable tour director.
This was my second trip with Trafalgar and it was just as amazing as the first. The tour director, Stephen, did a fantastic job of creating an atmosphere of comradarie and fun.
Trip was more strenuous than we had expected. Our tour director, Lutezia was outstanding. She went above and beyond to insure that everyone had a memorable experience,
Booking with affordable tours was as simple and easy as it gets. I was able to get all of my questions answered promptly and got all correct information about our vacation before travel.
This is our second trip with Trafalgar and we are indeed pleased with the wonderful and memorable experiences they have given us . They do plan their itinerary in a very thoughtful and comprehensive way so as to offer the travelers a meaningful and unique experience which they may not be able to do on their own.
Very satisfied with Trafalgar tours and their tour director and bus driver!
Everything went so smoothly & went above our expectations! All of the services booked through affordable tours were on time & professional! Trafalgar planned every detail & their excursions were well worth every penny! We're definitely interested in traveling with Trafgar again!
