  • What should I do if I get sick on a tour?

    If you get sick, your travel guide and director will assist you in seeing a medical doctor or clinic. Your travel insurance claim will be processed for medical costs as well. This service is included in the trip's price. However, it does not replace travel insurance, which is strongly recommended. Once you are feeling better, you will be directed so you can resume your trip.

  • Why should I purchase travel insurance?

    Trips are expensive and if your tour is cancelled or interrupted, you are still responsible for paying for the trip. Also, travel insurance can be used to cover extreme sports activities, such as paragliding or mountain climbing, or may be used for evacuation from a remote area. If your bags are lost, the insurance also covers any losses under this category. Therefore, you should buy the insurance, especially if you are traveling outside the country. Don't leave home without it.

  • What if I miss part of the tour?

    Unfortunately, you cannot receive reimbursement if you miss part of a tour. Refunds cannot be issued for absences, or for missing visits to attractions or dining venues.

  • In what countries is it safe to drink water from the tap or faucet?

    You can drink water from the tap in the U.S., Western Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Australia. For other countries, check with the tour's travel director to see what you need to do to access water safely.

  • Is smoking permitted on Trafalgar motor coaches?

    No. Smoking is allowed on tour buses. However, if you do smoke, you can do so during travel stops.

  • What are short breaks and how can I use them?

    Short breaks, offered by Trafalgar Tours, is another way to make the most of your leisure time or vacation. For example, if you only want to schedule a weekend trip, you might choose from one of the 4-day travel excursions.  In this case, you might want to get away and see the gleaming skyscrapers of Macau and Hong Kong or take 4 days to view Singapore's gardens and other illustrious sites. You might also consider going from urban to rural settings by exploring Sydney and the Blue Mountains, or take a trip from Tokyo to Mount Fuji.    In addition, you can use the featured short breaks and include them on your tour itinerary. For instance, you might add Trafalgar's 4-day Victoria Falls travel experience to a trip to Africa or enjoy an extra dose of the Asian continent by traveling to Nepal. For anyone enjoying an Australian holiday, Trafalgar features a 3-day trip to Uluru or a 4-day extension in the form of a trip along Great Ocean Road. You might also consider a trip to the Great Barrier Reef for 4 days.

  • What is the best way to plan a Trafalgar adventure?

    Before you plan your trip, take a look at the Trafalgar website and consider what locations appeal to you the most. You can narrow down the choices more easily if you already have in mind how much time you want to spend on your trip. For example, it is much simpler to decide on a trip if you narrow the time to, say, 6 to 8 days.    You can either choose a trip that lasts 8 days or take 2 short trips of 3 or 4 days if they are in close proximity. Once you decide on the length of time, you will need to figure out the level of activity. Will you be moving at a pace that suits you? Does the trip feature the types of activities you will like? After you answer these questions, you can embark on your Trafalgar adventure. You will just need to find the excursion that comes closest to what you want to spend.

  • What are Battlefield Tours?

    Battlefield tours allow you to visit the battlegrounds of sites from the First and Second World Wars, or get a closer look at famous European battlefields. You can also see the fields of conflict from the Civil War in the United States. Do you enjoy military history? If so, you will want to review these tours on the Trafalgar site.

  • Why is Trafalgar different than other tour companies?

    Trafalgar gives you a wide choice of escorted tour options as well as the ability to add to your travel itinerary. Whether you wish to take a weekend getaway or enjoy travel that spans 12 to 14 days, you will find a trip that will provide the latitude you need to enjoy your dream holiday.

Health and Safety Protocols on 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.

The combination of the 3-day Sydney stay ahead of the 15-day New Zealand Splendor was perfect. Those first days in Sydney were filled with activities that got us rapidly on the new time zone. New Zealand is so scenic! Our tour guide there was Maori and shared a wealth of insight into the native culture. You should be aware that both tours are operated by the local company AAT Kings, not Trafalgar. However, the service and quality matched or exceeded what we have come to expect from Trafalgar.

Trafalgar is just the most wonderful travel operator - they staff are so kind and generous with their time, they truly make very effort to make you feel as if you are the most important person and your good time is their primary objective - they surprise you throughout the trip with little unexpected treats and stay always close on hand to monitor activities to make sure everyone is smiling and happy - I would not travel with any other service

The value derived from the trip far outweighs the price paid. The hotel accommodations, the food, the optional experience, the hidden gem, the transportation were more than satisfactory. The operator is professional, friendly, safety conscious and enthusiastic.
