Our Commitment to Your Wellbeing
The Contiki wellbeing commitment
At Contiki we’re looking forward to welcoming back our travellers as soon as you’re ready to hit the road again. That’s why we’ve rigorously evaluated our experiences, training and protocols to make sure we not only meet our travellers wellbeing expectations, but exceed them in every single way. We sought guidance from the World Health Organisation and government agencies, and, as members of the World Travel and Tourism Council, we’ve been involved in defining global protocols.
Due to our diligent work during this time, we’ve been awarded the WWTC safe travels stamp - meaning we’re a business which has adopted global, standardised health and hygiene protocols. Read on to learn a little more about how we’re prioritising your wellbeing when you travel with us.
These are precautionary measures that will constantly be adapted in accordance with guidelines. We will always take necessary steps to ensure our travellers’ wellbeing, but rest assured that none of this will affect the incredible cultural experiences you’ll immerse yourself in, the unique accommodation you’ll visit or the friendships you’ll make on the road. This is still Contiki - lifelong memories always guaranteed.

We’ve adapted trip arrival times to ease congestion between groups so your Trip Manager can conduct a welcome meeting, covering what can be expected on your trip and all the necessary wellbeing precautions.
Your Trip Manager
Trip Managers will submit a Self-Health Declaration prior to the trip as well as post trip. Our industry leading training has been adapted and enhanced to include a dedicated module on dealing with Covid-19. (find out more in our FAQs below).

Our coaches are thoroughly sanitized prior to the start of your trip. Our drivers are trained on the latest hygiene protocols and will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seating areas and overhead rails on a daily basis.
It is important that travellers bring their own face masks to comply with regional guidelines. It is also a good idea to have your own hand sanitiser, though there will be some available on the coach at all times.
Boarding and disembarkation protocols will be adapted to ensure physical distancing is maintained and our Trip Managers & Drivers will be available for guidance should you require it.

Each supplier must be fully compliant with locally mandated standards. We’ll arrange priority entrance whenever possible and ensure physical distancing throughout.
