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: what is the difference between view and visit?

Visit - The coach will stop and you will visit a specific site. The entrance fee is included in the guided vacation. View - A brief stop and view a site from the outside. This is a great opportunity for you to take photos. See - The coach will drive by the site so that you can see it. Sightseeing tour - A Local Guide or Expert will accompany you on a tour of the town, city or site. Orientation tour - Places of interest will be identified, allowing you to then explore independently. 'Why not see' or 'perhaps enjoy' - These phrases refer to Optional Excursions not included in the guided vacation package, but are available from your Travel Director at a competitive and affordable price. Time to explore and discover – You will have free time on your own for independent sightseeing and discovering the city or town on your own. A day to relax – There are no planned activities, giving you time for Optional Excursions, independent sightseeing or simply relaxing and taking in the destination

Question: Is flight included?

Prices on our site do not include flights. Please give us a call to receive discounted pricing for your package. Thanks!

Question: When do you schedule the 2019 trips? When is the best time of year for travel regarding the weather?

The 2019 preview dates confirm in late September when Trafalgar releases their brochure catalog. In regards to weather, Ireland is a unique country in that it has something to offer during all seasons. If winter festivities interest you then travel in December, however if you wish for a nice cool spring breeze then May is recommended.

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.

Sally and Kieran, our Ireland tour guide and bus driver were wonderful!!!

Best of Ireland was another great trip with Trafalgar.

Everything was perfect, the tour guide Charles was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The people on the tour bus were friendly. I had an amazing trip and memories to treasure for a lifetime.

The tour was very interesting and everything went smoothly even if some of the hotels were not really 4 star-hotels like the one in Limerick. Thank you. Best Regards.

Hotels, except the last two, were a disappointment. As a USA citizen, we expected air and universally clean and up to date rooms.

The trip was what I expected my only complaint was the bathroom in Limerick and Galway hotels had mieldew.

The tour was everything I expected. The tour guide was superb and the bus driver was amazing. If someone wants to experience Ireland This trip will do it. But it is a busy trip. A first-time visitor to Ireland and seeking to get a feel for the whole country, this trip will do it.

Best tour director( Allie)we have experienced she was funny knowledgeable and highly organized.

The trip was great. Peter our tour director was knowledgeable, helpful, and always available to us. The excursions were really good into areas we wouldn't have done on our own. The "be our guest" experience was a tea in an 18th century manor with the owners of the manor and was amazing with freshly baked scones and clotted cream! I would recommend this tour to everyone.

It was a wonderful trip to Ireland. We had a great time with wonderful people.

My trip to Ireland was all I expected and MORE! Beautiful country, kind/polite people, clean and indeed the Emerald Isle! It was a dream come true. The tour was excellent!
