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.

Triple the budget for daily expenses. A cup or coffee will run you $6.50; to use the restroom $1; and, lunch/dinner meals are not cheap budget around $50 a person per day. While the entire trip was a great experience, the bus trip leaves a lot to be be desired. For example, on one of the many bathroom stops (at least twice a day) we were given 15 minutes to enter and use the single restroom - there were 40 people on the bus! Lunch breaks (30-45 minutes a day) are scheduled at expensive gift shops and stopping is based on the bus drivers ability to schedule his driving times. Three of the hotels had showers that allowed you to insert one leg at a tme, wash, and rinse - this is not a joke. Most hotels were adequate, but three or four left a lot to be desired. The tour director, on the first day of the adventure told us that " When you travel remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable." MOST IMPORTANT: Make sue you understand the terms Visit, See, and View. It is difficult to see and view at 70 miles an hour - but you'll be given 5 minutes stops in places to get off the bus, take a photo and re-board the bus, however, there will be many times when there are 2-20 buses taking the same photos in the same 5 minute period of time. Would I take this trip again, NO. However, I might try Trafalgar again with the knowledge I gained on this trip.

This is my first tour with a touring company and it was the best ever! Our guide and bus driver were top notch. I liked it so well I have scheduled another tour with the same company again in July.

This 20-day adventure allowed us to experience the full length of Norway and Sweden and to go beyond capitals and museums. One-third of the trip was above the arctic circle where we were able to see reindeer feeding on the tundra and watch the sun set over the arctic ocean from the most northern point of Europe! We also enjoyed learning from our fellow travelers on the coach from Australia, the USA, the Philippines, South Africa, India, Canada and New Zealand!
