Coronavirus travel update
You’re free to change or postpone your trafalgar holiday
Last updated 22 August, 2022 and remains current to today.
It is hard to grasp how much our world has changed over the past year due to COVID-19 and the impact it has had on our everyday lives and our ability to travel. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate through these challenging times together.
Travel Vaccination Policy Update
Effective immediately, all guest booked to travel with Trafalgar are required to be fully vaccinated to travel.
The wellbeing of our guests is our top priority. As part of this commitment, all guests travelling with Trafalgar through December 31, 2022 are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19, which may include a booster shot to keep the vaccination status current and valid, depending on the travel destination. Children not eligible for vaccination and/or booster at the time of travel must provide a verifiable and negative Covid-19 test result, taken within 72 hours prior to the start of the tour (taking time zones into consideration) for all tours departing until December 31, 2022.
For guests travelling with Trafalgar from 1 January 2023, Covid-19 vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended, but no longer required.
Please note that regardless of time of travel guests will need to comply with specific vaccine and/or booster requirements imposed by airlines and/or authorities in the destination visited, as well as requirements for accessing restaurants and venues, which may be more restrictive than above. It is guests’ responsibility to ensure that they comply at all times with these requirements. No refunds will be given if guests are unable to undertake some or all of their vacation due to their failure to comply with these requirements.
This policy is subject to change at any time, without notice.
As we continue to live and operate alongside COVID-19, the virus continues to create a set of challenges that are unfortunately outside of our control. We continue to review the travel restrictions imposed by government advisories worldwide on a daily basis.
Should your tour be impacted and unable to operate, your booking agent will contact you directly approximately 45-60 days prior to your tour’s planned start date.
If your booked tour is suspended, please rest assured that you have a Future Travel Credit (FTC) automatically available to you for the full value of the land portion of your tour, to use for travel before 31 December 2022.
You are eligible to either:
• Rebook now, and change your travel dates or destination to any tour departing up until 31 December 2022 without penalty on the land portion of your tour. Any discounts (of up to 15%) that had been applied to your original booking will be transferred and applied to your new booking.*
• Elect to hold a Future Travel Credit of the full amount paid for land portion of the suspended vacation, redeemable against any new booking for travel to any destination departing before December 31, 2022.**
Future Travel Credits can be redeemed with Trafalgar or another TTC brand (Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Costsaver, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, U by Uniworld River Cruises, AAT Kings or Inspiring Journeys) on any destination or tour for travel before 31 December 2022. To give you maximum flexibility, you can also choose to transfer your Future Travel Credit to a friend or family member. Learn more about Future Travel Credits here
