We are committed to your wellbeing
We have all adapted to this new world, where it’s imperative for us to take additional hygiene measures.
That’s why you can travel with us and be assured that we have put numerous new measures in place to elevate our hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of our guests and team has always been, and always will be, our primary concern.
In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, we are doing all we can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that we have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are travelling during these new times.
Covid Travel Declaration:
All team members and guests will complete a personal travel declaration before joining their trip. If a guest has tested positive for COVID-19 (or is travelling with someone who has), they will not be able join the trip until cleared as ‘fit for travel’ by a medical professional.
Upon arrival and prior to joining my trip, I will be able to present one of the following:
- Authentic COVID-19 vaccination certificate (electronic or paper showing date and time of vaccination(s) with final dose given at least 14 days before departing for this trip, OR:
- Verifiable negative test result for COVID-19 (electronic or paper showing date and time of test) taken within 72 hours of this Costsaver trip departure. For trips in the United Sates, the test must be a PCR test.
Expertly trained travel directors
Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of our guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, we will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of our Travel Directors while on your trip. Our Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.
Stringent on-the-road protocols
Our customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken additional measures to elevate our hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. Our Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All our guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.
A full team of support 24/7
It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, our operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.
Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.
Trusted partners, exceptional standards
We are very selective in who we work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of our guests as seriously as we do and agree to meet expected guidelines and specifications. We only work with establishments that we are confident will consistently adhere to our standards.
Always in the Know
As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Costsaver is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of our partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, our teams work to ensure our supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.
