Albatross Traveller Health and Safety on Tour

Our number one priority is your safety and to ensure that you can travel with confidence on an Albatross tour. 

With our small groups and full-size coaches, we can maintain a much safer person to person distancing whilst on board. You get so much more personal room. Our longer stays in smaller, traditional hotels ensure fewer transitions between hotels and less transient guests in each place that we stay. 

We will continue to work with our travel partners and staff to maintain our stringent hygiene and sanitary practices, which have been reviewed and elevated even further.

Coach Cleanliness

Albatross Tours use first-class, full size touring coaches with 40-45 seats. With a maximum group size of 28, there will always be spare seats and adequate space so we can maintain much safer distancing on the coach.

In addition:

  • Hand sanitizers are included onboard our coaches. All travellers will be asked to sanitize their hands each time they board the coach. 
  • Our coaches will be cleaned daily, including all touchpoints on board. 
  • Seat rotation will be minimised to the first two rows only, so you can keep the same seat throughout your trip. 
  • In the event of a traveller becoming ill whilst on board the coach, they will be moved away from the other travellers until medical attention can be sought.

Hotel Cleanliness

Albatross Tours feature 2, 3, 4, and even up to 5-night stays in smaller, traditional-style hotels. This means less transitions between hotels and interaction with fewer guests in each place that we stay.

Our hotel partners are committed to:

  • Intensifying their cleaning procedures, especially concentrating on ‘touchpoints’ within the hotel’s public areas and rooms, such as door handles, handrails, lift buttons, toilet handles, etc. 
  • Providing hand sanitizers in public areas, such as reception desks, restaurant, and bar areas. 
  • Following the current government and health organisation guidelines in their relevant country.

On Tour Support

In addition to the experience of our trained tour managers, Albatross provides 24-7 on tour support for every European tour in operation.
