TripOppo elevates our wellbeing protocols to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our guests and our team. Our trips are thoroughly audited to ensure health and safety standards are met. We will continue to build upon safe travel measures including adhering to standards set forth by the government health organizations and World Health Organization (WHO).
TripOppo has received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp, which provides travelers with assurance that we have implemented health and hygiene protocols that are aligned with WTTC’s Safe Travels Protocols .
BEFORE YOUR TOUR
The safety and health of our passengers, staff is our primary concern. With this in mind, we require all travelers to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 prior to starting their trip. This requirement will remain in place until guidance changes from health organizations and governments.
Additional requirements may exist based on your itinerary and enforced by airlines, government agencies, and local businesses.
We will keep you informed about any new protocols or requirements in the destination(s) you will be visiting.
The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) and airlines have implemented multiple safety measures. We highly recommend that you visit your airline’s website for specific information.
WHILE ON TOUR
On all trips we will follow local government guidance on permitted group sizes. This may mean reduced group sizes for the entire trip, for certain activities, or in certain environments such as restaurants or transport.
Tour guides and tour managers are required to be vaccinated, or have tested negative to COVID-19 within 72 hours before the trip. According to the local guidelines and recommendation, they will wear face masks if necessary.
Tour guides and tour leaders are trained in COVID-19 safe protocols including hygiene, sanitation, health screening and crisis management. They will pay more attention to the health of group members. With their local knowledge, you will explore the destinations safely.
Our partners and local suppliers such as transportation, hotels, and restaurants were carefully selected to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness and quality. We are actively working with all of our partners to confirm they are meeting or exceeding government-mandated standards and have enhanced hygiene measures.
Hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes will be provided on the coach whenever its possible for use throughout the tour. We suggest bringing your own hand sanitizer so you can use it freely throughout your journey.
Enhanced cleaning measures such as sanitization of high-touch areas will be taken each day on a tour coach, in addition to the regular strict cleaning procedures.
Currently, masks are mandatory for travelers, leaders, crew and suppliers whenever it is required by local government advice. In many countries, mask is required in (but is not limited to):
· Public and private transport
· Crowds or places where physical distancing is difficult
· Indoors (particularly in places with poor ventilation)
Local laws and regulations regarding masks apply to all travelers, leaders, crew and suppliers in the destination, regardless of their vaccination status. Vaccinated travelers are not exempt from wearing masks unless this is specified in local regulations.
We suggest bringing a reusable face mask and a few disposable face masks for your own use.
COMPLIANCE WITH LOCAL GUIDELINES
We continually monitor the guidelines for current advisories and travel restrictions for all of our destinations. Our teams are committed to comply with all locally mandated mitigation guidelines and best practices and will share these with our travelers as details become available closer to your travel dates.
We will do all we can to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our guests and our team, but we need everyone to do their part. All of our guests are expected to follow the hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organization. This will include thorough and regular washing of hands, face covering where applicable, and following social distancing guidelines. By all working together, we can create a safer and enjoyable experience for everyone.
