Tripster COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
Before we decided to reopen and resume operation, all our bookable activities underwent a new risk assessment with main consideration towards COVID-19.
We have reviewed all health and safety policies and have implemented new COVID-19 safety standards standards to emphasize sanitation and hygiene. These standards are following the recommendations from the World Health Organization and follow the World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC).
We have put in place additional measures, in line with government health advice and with global health authorities, to ensure that we maintain the highest standards of hygiene on all our trips. Throughout the trip there will be regular opportunities for handwashing and wherever possible hand sanitiser will be provided at accommodation, restaurants and on transport. All our guides, drivers & staff have completed training in our COVID-19 safety guidelines which includes modules on hand and respiratory hygiene.
Masks must be worn by all Tripster participants whenever recommeded by local health authorities. For the duration of your trip we will provide everyone with medical masks (2 pieces per person) and your guide will instruct you on how to safely wear, handle, wash or dispose of masks when wearing them while travelling.
We require all suppliers that we work with to detail their cleaning and sanitation protocols to ensure that these meet our standards. Rooms will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between guests and all high touch public areas regularly sanitised. All private transport used will be regularly cleaned and disinfected. Restaurants used for group meals will also be audited for sanitation practices and shared meals (ie. buffets or banquet style) will be avoided.
We are proactively moving towards contactless and low touch solutions for travel. This includes digital solutions for signing forms or providing traveller details in place of paperwork and using online ticketing and payments.
Due to the screening measures and additional safety protocols in place, once on the trip, you, your guide, and your group members will form your own circle of close contacts for the duration of the trip. We will continue to observe physical distancing as a practice wherever possible, including spacing in private vehicles when practical, and when required or recommended in public situations by local authorities.
