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.

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.

Trafagular is a know travel company in the business. Central Europe trip was good but not outstanding. Most of the hotels are 3 to 3.5 stars. Some hotels provide water and others don't. Food included in the meals is good but not great as well. Many optimal tours on the trip would be included on other tours, so its difficult to compare prices. . When the tour was delayed I got no message from Trafagular.

We had an awesome tour director and driver. They makes the difference. Nice group fron AU, NZ, CA and the US.

Trafalgar's included sight-seeing was very short - a couple of hours a day only. There were no included sight-seeing tours in Lake Bled, even though we were there for 2 nights plus one morning till noon. Everything was optional. The hotel in Budapest was very bad. When one adds the cost of optionals (too many), Trafalgar is not a good value. We believe Globus does a better job at a lower cost.

There were pluses and minuses: the bus had as little leg room as the current airline economy seats, so for the long drives it was very uncomfortable, even though we stopped every couple of hours. However, the bus driver was absolutely wonderful, and made that aspect of the trip stress free. The tour director was okay, but I've had much better ones with other companies. He seemed to be more concerned with telling us how much he was doing for us, which seemed to be basically the things his job required. At the end of the trip he left before the people on the trip were to leave, so if there were any problems, he was not there to help sort them out. The hotels varied, but for the cost of the trip were okay. If one did all the Optional Experiences, the cost of the trip would be much higher. It was surprising that some of the "Optional Experiences" were not part of the trip, such as in Berlin, a visit to the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint charlie was an Optional Experience. Also the highlights of Lake Bled were optional, at additional costs. Given my exceptional experiences with Overseas Adventure Travel and Adventures Abroad, it is highly unlikely that I would travel with Trafalgar again.

The bus driver was outstanding The bus seats were more uncomfortable and smaller than airplane seats A couple of the city tour leaders were excellent A few times on the bus, we were subjected to movies and music. The bus should be equipped with headphones, so we don't have to listen if we don't want to Breakfasts were outstanding Included dinners were mediocre The optional experience in Berlin should have been included. Those sites were too important to miss. The tour director didn't provide enough optional directions for our free time (and left before any of the tour attendees on the last day). The trip was worthwhile as a taste of those cities and countries, although it would have been nice to interact with the residents (probably not possible on a trip like this).The The change of hotels in Vienna was disappointing. The hotel in Lake Bled was lovely.

The trip went well and very enjoyable. Some parts were expensive particularly when alcohol was included. Would have preferred keeping the included drinks to one and then allow people to choose to pay extra for what they want to drink.

Tour director was very knowledgable driver was also nice i will definitely will go with Trafalgar

What we saw and experienced was beyond expectations. A very well-planned and conducted tour. Highly skilled tour director and driver. Special area guides also very good. This quality across the board was quite unusual. Of course Trafalgar deserves some credit here.

The trip was excellent. The tour director was very good. The hotels were also comfortable, clean and conviently located. Everything was well organized. We were impressed. If we decide to take a bus tour next time we probably will take again the Trafalgar and will ask Affordable Tours to help us.
