Our Safe Travel Approach
Listed below is a comprehensive approach for your well-being & safe travel.
Travel with Confidence
We are putting new protocols into practice, on each of our holidays.
Our protocols are developed based on guidance from the Travel Industry, World Health Organization, and government authorities and health providers around India & the world. We’re prepared to add new elements—including enhanced health and hygiene measures—to our travel safety standards.
Strict adherence to health protocols
The only hotel, transportation, meal, and activity suppliers we’ll work with are ones that are compliant with enhanced hygiene and social distancing standards aligned with local regulations. To make sure standards are met, our team will be performing in-person spot checks regularly.
Extra sanitization of private vehicles
All our tours are now by private Innova where only 4 guests plus the driver travel. Your vehicle will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before your group boards and regularly thereafter, with a specific focus on high-frequency touch-points. Our drivers are trained in social distancing best practices and how to provide the safest possible environment. Hand sanitizer will always be available on our vehicles.
Hotels & restaurants with enhanced cleaning measures
We will only partner with hotels and restaurants that adhere to strict guidelines, such as frequent cleaning of common areas and thoroughly disinfecting guest rooms between customers. Partner restaurants will follow enhanced protocols with staff trained in local health, hygiene, and physical contact guidelines.
On-tour experiences with physical distancing in mind
Portions of your tour may be adjusted as we continuously work with our partners, local venues, and restaurants to provide the safest experience possible. Examples may include avoiding crowded locations and peak times, itinerary alterations to follow local guidance, and staggered timing for included activities.
Smaller groups for your comfort
Our groups are capped at a maximum of 12 to 14 travellers, allowing for extra space on the bus.
Please note: To allow for additional physical distancing based on local regulations, some tours may run at even smaller group sizes. We also offer private tour booking options with a minimum group size of friends and family members.
Expert Tour Directors & local staff
All local staff, including your Tour Director, will be ready to explain social distancing and hygiene guidelines in the destinations you’re traveling to, and following these rules themselves. This may include the use of face masks in addition to frequent hand washing and hand sanitizer use. If you’re interested in taking public transportation during free time, your Tour Director will advise you on how to do so in the safest manner possible
Detailed departure information
You will receive details about COVID-19 protocols in advance of tour, and Tour Directors will provide additional details specific to the destination upon arrival. Traveler health checks and testing may be implemented as required by local guidelines. While on tour, you will be kept updated on any relevant changes.
