Our COVID-19 Safety Measures

What we're doing to keep you safe

Like many of us, we're getting excited at the thought of heading out for an active holiday. But we want you to rest assured that your safety and well-being continues to be our utmost priority.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have evolved our operating protocol to build in additional measures on our existing safety and risk mitigation strategy.

The World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp means we have adopted a set of global safety and hygiene protocols. We're COVID Safe We're a COVID Clean Practicing Business

 

  • We've increased our safety measures to help manage COVID on trips operated by us.
  • All guides have been trained on these actions which include field protocols that have been developed also in conjunction with our medical consultant Dr Ross Anderson.
  • Developed thorough health and hygiene protocols, including thorough cleaning schedules for all high touch surfaces, gear and group equipment and increased passenger screening process to identify high risk passengers.
  • Completed state and territory government COVID-19 Safety Plans. In completing these assessments we follow the recommended protocols for physical distancing measures and health and hygiene principles.
  • Obtained COVID CLEAN accreditation from Quality Tourism Australia.


Traveller safety has always been our #1 concern

FEEDBACK FROM THE FIELD

"We are certainly living in different travelling times; however, World Expeditions needs to be commended on embracing regulations and changes, surpassing all COVID expectations.  The attention to detail and thoroughness of staff left me feeling extremely safe and well looked after 🙂 Personally, I believe there's no better time to travel."

Cathy Finch | Larapinta traveller, August 2020


"We could not enjoyed it more. Although, it was anticipated to be the busiest month for Camino, especially this part from Sarria to Santiago, last 115 km, it was truly not. Due to the pandemic, it was much less people on the road and in the villages that we were passing through. UTracks was extremely efficient with preparing all documentation ahead of time and communicating every details to make our preparation very smooth."

Viktoriya Kozlova | Spanish Camino traveller, August 2020
