7 expectations our guests have for travel in 2022 - and how we're delivering

In this strange world we understand the dilemma of planning travel in 2022. On one hand you’re eager to fly on the next plane out of here, and on the other hand you’re feeling unsure and a little anxious about ongoing changes during these uncertain times.

Here at Trafalgar we hear you and we want to give our guests the confidence to get out there and travel in 2022. It’s why we’re making it easier to keep your travel dreams alive. 

We’re with you every step of the way – you just need to decide where you want to travel in 2022. Here’s how we’re delivering on that promise.

I want to have my wellbeing cared for

Travel should be fun, adventurous and an escape from the real world. We want our beloved guests to enjoy their holiday and truly relax, which is why our elevated wellbeing protocols are in place. When you travel with Trafalgar in 2022 you deserve complete peace of mind and a mental break. Our three-step distancing and hygiene protocol has been expertly designed for our tours and endorsed by the World Travel and Tourism Council safe travels stamp, plus all our guests are required to be fully vaccinated to travel.

Your wellbeing is in great hands, being looked after not just by your wonderful Travel Director, but also a Wellbeing Director on all trips larger than 20 people (excluding Australia and New Zealand). Plus, we have an around-the-clock support team so you can travel with complete ease.

I want flexibility to change my plans

Remember when we used to dream of faraway places, research trips and then hit that book button? Here at Trafalgar we want to give you pre-pandemic travel confidence to book and travel in 2022. Our risk-free and flexible booking terms mean you can lock in your dream holiday with a fully refundable $200 deposit. Plus, since plans change our flexible terms give you the chance to cancel your trip up to 30 days before departure*.

I want rich, incredible travel experiences 

Rome wasn’t built in a day, Paris is still Paris and Barcelona is waiting for you. These bucket list destinations haven’t gone anywhere and the people and places offering those rich, incredible travel experiences are waiting for you to return in 2022. 

Sure, there will likely be more hand sanitiser and masks, but you’ll still enjoy the same Trafalgar travel experience where we take care of the essentials and tick off the best experiences everywhere we go. If for some reason an attraction is closed, our behind-the-scenes and on-the-ground team will optimise and pivot your itinerary to make sure it’s still full of the rich, fun Trafalgar experiences you love.

I want to make local connections

There’s nothing like meeting the person who picked the olives and pressed the fruit to make the best olive oil of your life. The moments you share with the characters of Tuscany, the locals of Lisbon or the farmers of Costa Rica can often be the highlight of a Trafalgar tour. While most people choose a destination based on the big bucket list sights, like climbing the Eiffel Tower, it’s often these personal connections and time spent breaking bread around the table that linger longest in your memories. When you travel in 2022 we promise you’ll still rub shoulders with our favourite locals.

I want to be supported while I travel

How you choose to travel in 2022 makes a huge difference. If you travel unguided, you’re on your own navigating restrictions and rules in each country, changing your itinerary to suit. But if you choose to travel with Trafalgar in 2022, you’ll be looked after every step of the way by our amazing on-road team. Should something change while you’re on trip we have around-the-clock teams working behind-the-scenes to reroute your itinerary to make sure your trip runs seamlessly. Your job? Simply relax. It’s a holiday after all.
