Globus has announced updates to its pre-trip Health & Safety Protocols, including requiring proof of full vaccination to join the company’s upcoming international tours, river cruises and independent vacation packages starting 15JUL on Globus, Avalon Waterways, Cosmos and Monograms trips.
With the new policy in place, travellers ages 12 and older must provide proof of vaccination, completed at least 14-days prior to joining an international tour or cruise. Globus will accept all vaccines authorized or approved by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, European Centre for Disease Prevention, Health Canada, or another official government body.
“As part of our commitment to provide sustainable, responsible travel across the globe, while keeping in line with current and anticipated destination policies, we are instituting a new requirement for travellers embarking on international vacations,” said Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus family of brands. “They will now need to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for international vacations.”
The company plans to revert back to its policy of proof of vaccination, negative COVID-19 test or immunity for travel after 31OCT 2021.
“While we do not anticipate that Canadians will have the opportunity to travel internationally with us for most of the summer, we’re ready and providing ample time to prepare for their next, best vacation,” said Bishop. “This international travel policy provides our guests the safest return to travel, follows the latest requirements of many countries, and ensures more seamless movement between destinations.”
Globus also provides travellers a complimentary Peace of Mind Travel Plan where if guests are unable to go on their vacation due to COVID-19 restrictions, they have the flexibility to move their plans to any other 2021 or 2022 date, destination, itinerary or even, another brand in Globus’ travel portfolio, without penalty.
