Tour Care & Safety

The health and safety of our travellers is always our #1 priority, and moreso now than ever. To ensure your well-being and provide peace of mind, we have created enhanced health and safety protocols for our tours as we move toward a responsible return to travel. These new procedures will be in line with recommendations from the World Health Organization and the World Travel & Tourism Council's (WTTC) Safe Travel Protocols for tour operators. As we continue to make changes, we will keep this page updated with our latest information.

We will do all we can to ensure our travellers' safety and health while on our adventures, but we also need your help—by working together, we can create a safe and enjoyable travel experience for everyone.

If your tour starts on or after 05 May 2023, we will no longer require you to be fully-vaccinated; however, we do still recommend that all travellers are fully-vaccinated before travelling.

We recognize the immense privilege that it is to travel and will continue to act on our moral obligation and duty of care to the communities we visit. We believe vaccinations play a key role in saving lives and helping to keep people safe. Around 70% of the world is vaccinated against Covid-19 but vaccination rates remain low in some of the destinations and communities we visit. We continue to support global vaccine equity and continue to strongly encourage all travellers and leaders to get fully-vaccinated against Covid-19. We will continue to require that all of our Tour Leaders and other public-facing staff be fully-vaccinated.

  • Though Adventures Abroad will no longer require proof of vaccination as a condition of participation, all travellers must take full responsibility to ensure that they conform to entry requirements applicable to the country/ies to be visited and/or transited on their tour. While the number of countries that no longer require proof of Covid vaccination upon entry continues to rise, most still require that you be fully-vaccinated with at least one booster at least 14-days prior to arrival, or provide a negative Covid test taken within 3 days prior to entry.

  • All participants and staff support must be in possession of masks and be prepared to wear them indoors and outdoors when requested by your Tour Leader or when certain establishments and/or jurisdictions visited may still have their own masking requirements. As a courtesy to your fellow travellers and for your personal well-being, we need all participants to be willing to undergo testing as directed by your Tour Leader should infection be detected or suspected among the group. This way, any appropriate protections can be adjusted as needed as the tour progresses. As they may be unavailable in more remote locations, travellers are urged to bring their own supply of rapid (antigen) tests. You should also confirm with your insurance provider the kind of test they require as proof of infection should you need to make a claim.

  • Should a participant become ill on tour with symptoms consistent with Covid-19, they should immediately notify the Tour Leader and self-isolate, both for their health and the welfare of the group. In the event of a positive test, you will not be able to rejoin the tour, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, until a confirmed negative test result is achieved. We will do our best to ensure everyone receives the help and support they may need; however, participants should be aware that all expenses for additional food, lodging, and transportation expenses incurred in catching up with the group, are the sole responsibility of the participant. As always, we strongly recommend a comprehensive travel insurance policy that provides coverage for such situations.

  • Planning and executing a successful tour has always been a shared responsibility and, more than ever, we'll be relying upon our intrepid travellers to do their part to heed the advice and instructions provided pre-trip, and from our Tour Leaders and local partners at destination. It's up to all of us to ensure that we embark on future adventures with respect and consideration for one another and those we encounter along the way. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring a safe and rewarding experience for all and a happy and healthy return home.

Many thanks for your patience, understanding, and ongoing support!

Adventures Abroad staff, management, Tour Leaders and worldwide partners and colleagues.
