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.

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.

Trafalgar tours was fantastic. Really enjoyed the trip. The last day in London could have been better and included some additional things. I think it fell short. But the rest of the trip was amazing

We loved Bernie. He was so knowledgeable, fun, and helped us really navigate each city with his pointers. We did not like the London tour guided portion as we felt it was chaotic and disorganized. We ended up leaving the guided tour and doing things on our own.

Eric went always out of his way to find the best tour for us, answer my questions, reply promptly to my calls, and always above and beyond the call of duty. Thank You.

Miguel was very consistent and professional, I would recommend him to my family and friends

Trafalgar was the best!! Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgible.

This was the second time I used Trafalgar, but I enjoyed this trip better than the first one. Bernie, Tour Director, is Great. She's very funny, and very knowledgeable about the areas we are going. She and our Coach Driver, Giovanni really worked together. So well organized and everything is so well planned. Me and my husband really enjoyed our vacation.

Our trip with Trafalgar exceeded all of our expectations. First, Affordable Tours was outstanding in helping us plan our trip. Our travel consultant answered every question accurately and timely. She made excellent air reservations for us, and she coordinated our extra day activities. This was a wonderful experience. All hotels were exceptional and all activities and meals were outstanding. Our guide deserves great credit. He worked tirelessly to insure all passengers and baggage were loaded on the bus in an efficient manner. He kept everyone on a tight schedule, and did it compassionately with a touch of humor. I can't say enough about his excellent knowledge of the region and its history. We would love to travel with him again. The value for the price was absolutely outstanding. Thank you Trafalgar for a wonderful experience.

Great experience of a lifetime. Our travel consultant at Affordable Tours was tremendously helpful in planning this trip for us. It was more than what I expected of our travel. We enjoyed every moment and the tour director was an amazing person.

We saw a lot on our trip but it was so fast paced that we felt a little more rest time could have been included.

Our Europe tour guide was excellent! Website should be more clear, however, that all the excursions are extra. We spent an additional $2500 just on being able to attend the excursions. The London portion of the trip was disappointing. It was not guided. We were left at a hotel with our luggage to check in ourselves and other than a 2 hour tour in the morning - it was completely independent. There was one girl available to work with 30+ guests. It was chaos and a horrible way to end our trip. If I had known it was going to be like that, I would not have booked the tour with the London piece, but saved that trip for another date with a different tour operator.
