Enhanced coronavirus-related protocols and hygiene standards are being implemented for all trips operated by brands under The Travel Corporation umbrella.

The measures have been carried out to cover the Trafalgar, Luxury Gold, Insight Vacations, Contiki and Costsaver operations once domestic and international travel resumes.

TTC is also ready to comply with new testing, physical distancing and hygiene protocol requirements by relevant government authorities and in accordance with the guidance of the World Health Organisation.

“Travel agents’ clients can rest assured that they will travel with the comfort of their own personal space and have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants they will enjoy on their trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines required in each jurisdiction,” the company said.

Executive and operations staff have spearheaded a complete review of the sanitation and hygiene measures around guests’ experiences and interactions while on guided tours.

Chief executive Brett Tollman said: “At TTC, as a family-owned and run business for the past 100 years, we have always taken the well-being and peace of mind of our guests and every team member as our top priority

“As we adapt to this new world, our dedicated, diligent TTC team members across the globe are preparing and will be implementing enhanced training, procedures and numerous new measures throughout our various guest experiences offered, with the very best possible care and service.

“These new protocols will be adapted and adjusted as needed, in a timely manner, as governments define and implement what will be required in each country.”
