The Travel Corporation brands—including Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Trafalgar, Costsaver, Brendan Vacations and Contiki—will require all adult guests on its tours to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The new policy will be in effect starting Sept. 1 until at least Dec. 31, 2021.
Guests must be able to show documented proof of an approved COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca Vaxzervria, or Johnson & Johnson), with the final dose administered at least 14 days prior to the start of their trip.
“The wellbeing of our guests is our top priority,” said Melissa da Silva, US President of Trafalgar, Contiki, Brendan Vacations and Costsaver. “With many of the countries we travel to now requiring proof of vaccination to enter museums, restaurants, and historical sites, our new requirement will ensure that our guests are not only protected, but also enjoy their vacation as seamlessly as possible.”
“The decision to require our guests to be fully vaccinated will allow for a more seamless travel experience, providing extra peace of mind and confidence when booking our tours,” said Guy Young, president of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold. “As the pandemic continues to evolve, countries in Europe and elsewhere are now requiring proof of vaccination to enter indoor venues such as museums and restaurants, making it challenging to navigate destinations without being vaccinated.”
