The Travel Corporation makes vaccines mandatory

The Travel Corporation has introduced a policy urging travellers under the guided brands to be fully vaccinated

All adult guests travelling with escorted touring brands under the Travel Corporation (TTC) must be fully vaccinated against Covid, under the company’s new policy.

Those travelling with AAT Kings, Contiki, Costsaver, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Trafalgar must have received both shots of their vaccine 14 days prior to travel, with the policy being put into place until at least December 31. 

Widespread vaccinations have proven to aid international travel to reopen and for the industry to recover.

Gavin Tollman, chief executive of Trafalgar, told Travel Weekly: “We have always put guest safety first, but we’re also cognisant that guests get the seamless and enjoyable experience they have become accustomed to.

“This need has led us to institute a Covid-19 vaccination requirement for all adult guests travelling with our TTC guided brands.

“Under the new policy, adult travellers will need to show documented proof of having received an approved full Covid-19 vaccination at least 14 days prior to the start of their trip.

“The policy will run until at least December 31 2022, and I urge other operators to follow suit and introduce similar protocols.

“Getting guests travelling again safely, and seamlessly, should be the main priority to build back momentum for the travel sector.”
