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.

accomodations are uneven quality but I go-with-the-flow and like that the desk staff is very helpful to us Cosmosians!. as with last year's trip to Ireland arriving early in the morning on the international flight we could check in to the first night's hotel on both trips to get some sleep. that's worth the price of the trip. This cannot be expected or assumed but I believe Cosmos's connection to these sights is that powerful. I believe Affordable Tours' reputation is also a powerful connectionwhen making all travel plans

Very nice hotels but dindt like the bed accommodations with two beds being put together making uncomfortable to sleep with the beds separating apart while a sleep.

Stefania was very helpful and always returned my calls even on a weekend.

The Spain And Portugal experience were great. Went to see places, that if we went on our own we would have missed them. The driver Oscar and the tour director Raquel were very good and of great help. This is my second trip with Cosmos and had a very good time. Thanks

The guide could have been better but the driver was fabulous and he's the most important guy! Some of the hotels were noisy due to tour groups. Wouldn't both doing the optional dinner tours again as l didn't think, the food was that good.

Tour Guide Julian, was exceptional! Knowledgeable, professional, courteous, caring, witty, funny. My first tour experience, unforgettable. The only way to visit a foreign country is to do a tour, not on your own. Viva Cosmos and Affordable Tours--BRAVO!!!

Tour guide was very knowledgeable, organized and personable.

Our tour director - was absolutely fantastic - we loved him and he did everything to help end explain. we had a lot of previous tours, but he was the best.

The arrangements, the tour director and the driver were excellent! The tour director was extremely knowledgeable and has the rare gift of making the passengers comfortable throughout the trip.

The tour director for my trip was very good.
