COVID-19 is continuing to shape the future of travel, with another tour operator this week announcing it was shrinking the size of groups to facilitate social distancing.
Globus and Cosmos announced they are making their group experiences even smaller, with an average of 20 guests per departure, promising “room to roam.” For comparison, the average group size for Globus is 36 and for Cosmos is 50.
In 2021, Small Group Discovery tours will be available on all departures through Central and South America, Asia, and Africa, plus select departures in the South Pacific.
“Whether they’re navigating the mysteries of Machu Picchu; embarking on a game-drive through Tanzania or breathing in the orange blossoms in Japan, Small Group Discoveries in exotic destinations promise big experiences in 2021,” Stephanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus family of brands, said in a statement.
Globus also offers its European Private Touring program, launched in 2018, where party size range from 2 to 24. With Private Touring, travelers have their own dedicated Tour Director, private transportation, and private guides on published itineraries, updated and priced to accommodate private groups.
For any travelers who may have lingering concerns, Globus introduced a complimentary Peace of Mind Travel plan that will be attached to all 2021 vacation bookings, giving travelers the flexibility to move vacations to any other 2021 or 2022 date, destination, itinerary or even, another brand in our vast travel portfolio. There will be no penalties as long as the booking is moved before the final payment date.
The Globus family of brands, which also includes Avalon Waterways and Monograms, has suspended all tours and cruises, worldwide, through September.
