Covid-19 Traveller Information
Updated July 2020
The daily changes in government advice in relation to travel already created the conditions for greater flexibility within the sector. We are happy to rebook dates and trips for our guests at the same period of the year and for the same destination and product. There will be no extra cost for this, it comes as part of the service. We will undertake this action if the country's public health where you are resident of have introduced measures prohibiting you in relation to quarantine upon return or the destination state you’re visiting has introduced measures prohibiting free movement in relation to quarantine. We will also do the same where an employer has told our travellers to stay at home and suggested to them not to travel abroad as a result of self-isolation upon return home. We understand that the changes made by public health officials are for everyone’s benefit including our travellers, partners, staff, representatives, driver/guides, local guides and those whom we team up with to provide excellent levels of care and service. Our very first wish is to ensure our guests are safe and secure. This was the case before Covid for everyone working in the sector, and that is everyone’s wish now.
As the world opens up to travel again, we look forward to taking care of you by ensuring our providers sanitize their vehicles, providing the conditions for adequate physical distancing, providing you with 1 face mask at the beginning of the trip. Hand sanitiser will be available and generally making sure we fulfil all our obligations to staff, travellers, providers and partners. Whilst Covid-19 poses a risk, we must ensure that everyone wears a face mask whilst travelling in a vehicle and whilst in the close indoor and outdoor company of fellow travellers, staff and service providers of Global Dream Travel. Failure to do so will be a failure to halt any risk and therefore, your liberty to maintain participation on the tour is forfeit.
We have found that people are more eager to travel now than ever before, many having missed the experiences, new contacts, friendships, pictures, cultures and wider learning and discovery that travel affords. We understood this, we feel the same way ourselves, and we’re happy to provide you fresh opportunities, where and when it’s safe and sensible to do so.
Our earliest trips are for May 2021, we hope this is adequate time for scientists and governments to overcome Covid as best as possible and see a return to many of the things in life we have taken for granted. Travel not as a luxury, but as an essential part of understanding ourselves and the world.
Many people will prefer to take trips closer to home and, given the increase in staycations, we look forward to offering you trips you never thought you’d get the chance to explore so soon. From National Parks in the USA to hiking, biking and cycling in your own country, now is the time to familiarise yourself and your family/friends with all that is great about the landscapes and cultures of your own country.
As your fellow travellers and adventurers, we learn to live differently without sacrificing any of the pleasures and joys of travel we have come to love and adore. Travel is the best education, we all learn from it and seek happiness in future trips with the people and places we know and love. Here’s to 2021 being a great year to getting back on the road again and sharing new travel journeys together!
