At Globus, we create first-class escorted tours with just the right balance of included features & free time. We’re all about hidden gems, not hidden charges.

Health & Safety with Globus Journeys

Pre-trip Health & Safety Measures

Travellers are now required to offer Globus family of brands’ personnel one of the following printed and/or
digital verifications upon arrival:
• Proof of COVID-19 vaccination at least 14 days prior to travel (must provide for ALL International Travel)
• Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 72-hours of travel (acceptable for Domestic Travel)
• Proof of recovery from a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis within three months of travel (acceptable for Domestic Travel)

Without proof of a COVID Vaccine for International Travel or one of these verifications for Domestic Travel, travellers will not be able to join a planned holiday with Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways or Monograms. These requirements are in addition to any federal or state
government regulations. 

In addition to unveiling new COVID-19 parameters required at the start of each holiday departure, the
Globus family of brands announced that they will facilitate – and cover – additional COVID-19 testing, if
required, for guests to return to their home country, as well as tests on the trip if guests show symptoms.

These new protocols will take effect in April 2021.


IN TOURING WE TRUST
Globus has always greeted the most fascinating places across the globe with unmatched intrigue, curiosity and wonder. Along the way, we’ve discovered the sights to see, encountered the people to meet, engaged in the customs to sample and indulged in the cuisine to taste. And we’ve done this while bundling unrivalled knowledge from Tour Directors and local guides with first-class accommodations and transportation to help you greet the globe on a journey that goes beyond the ordinary. In short, touring offers over-the-moon experiences without overthinking.

When travellers, like you, choose a Globus tour, you say “goodbye” to worry, leaving you free to wander and wonder about the world around you. And that idea – and promise – couldn’t be more prevalent and welcomed today. While today’s world has changed, what remains certain is Globus’ commitment to your safety, comfort and peace-of-mind.

TRUST IN TOGETHERNESS.
When you travel with Globus, you’re choosing to explore the world in a select group of like-minded travellers: People who stick together, from start-to-finish. Now more than ever, there’s a great comfort – and extraordinary confidence – in that choice.

SMALL GROUPS, BIG EXPERIENCES.
Globus makes it easy to explore the world with calm and confidence with Small Group Discoveries available in many destinations. With an average of 24 guests per departure (in some cases even fewer), there’s always room to roam with extra space between you and other travellers—while still getting up close to fascinating attractions and the stories that make experiences feel personal and connected.

GETTING AROUND, SAFE & SOUND.
Rest assured our state-of-the-art coaches and vehicles have undergone thorough cleaning protocols between tours, and each day starts with a freshly-cleaned motorcoach and touch-ups at each stop. Before you board, we will provide hand sanitiser, luggage disinfection and assigned seating to prevent the spread of germs.

OUR TDS ARE THE BEES KNEES.
No one knows the ins and outs of your destination like your Globus Tour Director And no one are better equipped to ensure your time with us is both happy and healthy. Their local insights and experience, along with support from our local operations offices, means there’s someone always looking out for you, 24/7. Enhanced health and safety training keeps them a step ahead of potential on-trip issues, and allows them to focus on your well-being and comfort throughout your journey.

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME.
Globus has hand-picked each and every hotel we use, vetted to meet our standards of quality, cleanliness, service and amenities. Each hotel has been checked to ensure they are meeting or exceeding government-mandated standards, and each must pass our strict health and safety requirements before you set foot in the lobby.

THE LURE OF THE LESS TRAVELED.
While it might be the iconic sights of the world that first entice us to pack our bags for adventure, it’s often the tucked-away towns, lesser-known nooks and secluded seafronts that beckon us to return.

Our “Undiscovered” series of tours invite you to trade the Colosseum for the narrow lanes of Tuscan towns; the hustle and bustle of London for the quiet landscapes of the English countryside; Europe’s seas of tourists for the coastal villages of the Mediterranean and the crowded cities of North America for smaller, crowd-pleasing gems, from sea to shining sea.

CAREFREE CONFIDENCE.
The world has changed, but what remains certain is our commitment to guest safety and peace-of-mind while traveling. Not only have we enhanced our on-trip health and safety protocols with our new Assurance program, we are also offering you risk-free, hassle-free and strings-free bookings.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN TRAVELING WITH US
Globus is dedicated to giving our guests a safe, stress-free getaway. To that end, with help from our Global Health & Safety Team, we’ve established a set of enhanced pre- and on-trip protocols and procedures to ensure health – and happiness – throughout your journey with us.
View On-Trip Protocols & Procedures: https://www.globusjourneys.com/user/images/protocols.pdf

BEFORE YOU GO
We’ll take every step to ensure you and your travelling companions are ready for the journey. Along with a host of pre-trip information to help you prepare for your tour, you’ll have access to the GlobusGO App—a great resource for your tour schedule and details, your destination, and any updates related to your trip.

And as an additional assurance measure, we’re providing guests with a set of health and safety advice and instructions, ensuring that all health considerations have been taken into account before leaving home.

CARE-FREE OPTIONS
Globus offers Small Group Discoveries for many destinations, giving you the option to limit your fellow travellers to an average of just 24, or fewer, in some cases.

Plus, we’re here for you. Our Vacation Planners are available every day to answer questions and ensure you’re confident in your upcoming journey—we love to hear from you!

HEADING FOR HOME
Our aim is that your tour leaves you as healthy—and happy—as when you left (we strive for happier!). Efficient and reliable airport transfers are available (and are included when you purchase flights with us), so that’s one less thing to worry about.

And, as you prepare for the journey home, If you need any assistance or are not feeling 100%, just let your Tour Director know and we can help find local medical assistance to get you ship-shape before your return.


Globus will continue to review and update Assurance initiatives as we make our return to the world, including adhering to – and building upon – the standards set forth by travel and health agencies across the globe, including the European Centre for Disease Prevention (ECDC), the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA).

Sustainability

From our inception, The Globus family of brands has cast a light on the world’s most fascinating places and people – inviting wayfarers and wanderers like you to bask in their glory, intrigue and wonder. Along the way, we’ve helped travelers uncover ancient traditions while meeting the locals dedicated to preserving them; to meander historic hallways while giving back to the societies that safeguard them; and to put down the guidebooks and pick up a greater understanding of the world and its people.

Immersed in enlightening experiences, we naturally gain a deeper appreciation – one that leads to greater compassion, consideration and curiosity as we ask ourselves, what else can we do to protect our planet, preserve our sacred places and help humankind?
