Covid-19 and Platinum Travel / Insight Vacations

Your well-being is our Top Priority

 

Insight's Covid-19 travel protocols

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC), we’ve worked closely with theWorld Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and the World

Health Organisation (WHO) to guide and co-create the “New Normal Safe and Seamless Traveller Journey” global protocols.

With our comprehensive approach outlined below, you can have peace of mind that when your clients travel with us, they’re in

good hands, so they can simply enjoy their trip. Visitinsightvacations.com/well-being for the latest details.

 

Hygiene protocols and distancing

 

Pre-Trip Health Declaration

All team members and guests will complete a personal well-being declaration before joining

their trip. If a guest has tested positive for COVID-19 (or is travelling with someone who has),

they will not be able to join the trip until cleared as “fitfor travel” by a medical professional.

Sanitised Surfaces

All frequently touched surfaces inside the coach — including handrails, doors, tables, overhead lockers

— plus guests luggage handles, will be disinfected multiple times each day.

Air Filters

Our coaches are equipped with air filters that are inspected and cleaned daily and replaced regularly.

The on-board filters help purify the air as you travel. 

Quality Assurance

The Well-being Director is responsible for the quality assurance of all hotels, restaurants and

other venues guests visit during each journey. Quality checks will ensure that all travel partners

meet local regulations and the established TTC, WTTC and WHO well-being protocols.

Hygiene Equipment

Hand sanitiser is accessible and freely available. We ask that guests bring their own face mask and

gloves, but in the case of emergency, personal protective equipment will be distributed to them.

Smaller Groups - More Personal space

With smaller groups, guests benefit from more personal space, and our uniquely reconfigured

coaches offer twice as much space for each traveller.

Priority access

With priority access at landmark sites, guests skip the queues and have greater opportunity to

maintain their physical distance while sightseeing.

 

24/7 Incident Response

 

Always up-to-date

Our teams are always up to date and continue to adjust to the changing regulations from

health authorities and local governments. They make changes behind the scenes so guests are

able to enjoy their trip.

Incident Response Protocol

Should an incident arise on trip, rest assured that we have protocols in place. We will direct

distancing and coordinate with local medical support and testing. We will liaise with local

authorities to follow directives, which will vary across countries, and step of the way.

 

Insight Vacations Well-Being Measures

Travel Directors and Travelling Concierges will submit a Self-Health Declaration prior to the trip as well as post

Covid-19.

  • Effective personal hygiene and sanitization techniques for infection prevention
  • Effective use of PPE (personal protection equipment)
  • Appropriate physical distancing protocols
  • Preventative measures to ensure your well-being
  • Protocols in the event of a suspected COVID-19 case

  • Provide guidance about physical distancing
  • Be vigilant for any signs guests are unwell and ensure rapid implementation of protocols
  • Ensure the safe handling of payments
  • Have the authority to alter timings to avoid congested areas

Your well being Director (Tour director on Ireland in style Tour)

To provide you additional personal support and assistance when you travel with us, our Travel Directors and

Travelling Concierges will be supported by a specially trained and dedicated Well-being Director on every

journey with over 20 guests.

 In this new, fast changing COVID-19 era, we have implemented elevated hygiene and distancing practices to meet new requirements put forth by local governments and health authorities, including the World Health Organization

(WHO). These details can be found on our website Insight Vacations Well Being

As we adapt to this new world we continue to execute numerous new measures throughout our various guest experiences with the best care and service  possible, to ensure optimum health and well-being for our guests and our team. These new protocols will be adapted and adjusted as needed, in a timely manner, as governments define and introduce what will be required in each country. As these directives become known and if your group is affected, we will work with your agent to achieve the best outcome keeping the well-being and peace of mind of our guests as our top priority. Considering the fluidity of situation, the pricing and itinerary, including sightseeing venues, hotels and restaurants are subject to change upon government regulatory changes.
