Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

 Last Update - 08/05/2020

 

We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation across each of our destinations. We will make decisions as to our ability to operate each trip at least four weeks before and contact customers individually.

If your trip is cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you will be offered free transfer options to any other available 2020 dates including changes of destinations. We hope that you'll rearrange your trip with us but if that's not possible, we will of course offer you a full refund.
