Travel in the Covid Era
CETA Tours believes that prepared travelers enjoy their tours more. We have long provided a Traveler's Handbook with information about a wide variety of topics related to international group travel, including safety. Our commitment to preparation has only increased since the start of the pandemic. Ensuring safe travel during COVID is multi-faceted.
New Travel Requirements
Safe travel during the COVID era comes with some new requirements. CETA Tours is in direct and frequent contact with our international vendors about the regulations regarding our groups. We also frequently check protocols for the destinations of our groups. It is with these regulations in mind that we have implemented additional requirements to ensure a safe and enjoyable tour.
Vaccination RequirementCETA Tours requires all travelers to be fully vaccinated to ensure the safety of the group and to be sure all our travelers meet the entry requirements of the destination and venues within a destination.
Pre-Departure DocumentationMost destinations and/or airlines require the completion of online pre-departure documentation. CETA Tours will advise and, when possible, assist travelers in completing this information.
Local ProtocolsWe will keep group leaders up-to-date on current regulations and protocols for their group. Close to departure, specific information regarding those protocols will be provided for the entire group. Travelers should be aware that these protocols are fluid and could include: masking, social distancing, and capacity limits for venues.
COVID TestingIf a COVID test is required for the return flight to the United States, CETA Tours will arrange for the group to get tested (at their own expense) in a timely manner.
Travel Insurance Recommendation
CETA Tours has always highly recommended that travelers protect their travel investment by purchasing travel insurance. That is more important now more than ever.
Protection for COVIDTravel Insurance provides benefits if a traveler if contracts COVID prior to departure and is unable to travel or if COVID is contracted during the tour.
