Our approach to travel wellbeing protocol, gives you the peace of mind to enjoy your trip, knowing you are in good hands.
Trafalgar collaborated with the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) to align and create global protocols and procedures which have been awarded the WTTC Safe stamp. This coupled with existing national and regional government authority regulations and the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, have produced our enhanced, on-trip standards to assure the health and happiness of our guests.

Effective immediately, all guest booked to travel to European destinations with Trafalgar and its operating brands are required to be fully vaccinated to travel. Venues such as museums and restaurants are requiring proof of full vaccination or near-daily negative PCR testing results for non-vaccinated visitors. If you are not vaccinated, you would be required to take multiple PCR tests to participate in many of our included activities.
We wish for guests to experience travel seamlessly and joyfully. When faced with having to exclude guests from activities and subject them to frequent out-of-pocket on-trip testing, we feel that requiring all guest to be vaccinated to be the most responsible choice.
Your final vaccine dose must have been administered a minimum of 15 days prior to the start of the trip. This policy will be in effect until September 30, 2021. We will continue to monitor the local requirements and will adjust accordingly.
For Europe Travel: Effective immediately, all guests booked to travel to European destinations on tours commencing up until September 30, 2021 with Trafalgar and its operating brands are required to be fully vaccinated to travel. Venues such as museums and restaurants are requiring proof of full vaccination.
For USA Travel (excluding Hawaii): Proof of vaccination or verifiable and negative viral test (PCR or antigen) taken 72 hours prior to the start of the tour.
For Hawaii Travel: The State of Hawaii will only accept specific Covid-19 tests from certified CLIA labs, which are listed under the Safe Travels program (https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel-partners/). U.S. domestic travellers who have completed vaccination 15 days or more prior to visiting the destination, no longer require Covid-19 testing but will still need to register their vaccination via the Safe Travels platform (https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel-partners/).
Guests will also need to comply with specific requirements imposed by airlines and/ or governments which may differ from the above.
We have introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you, our other guests, and our team members. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the World Health Organisation and government health bodies, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
