Do I need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to work as a Trip Manager for Contiki?

For all Contiki Travellers joining our trips from 1 January 2023 onwards, Covid vaccinations and boosters will be highly recommended but no longer required.

We will adopt the same stance for our Crew as we will our Travellers.

It is important to also note that both Contiki Travellers & Crew will need to comply with specific vaccine and/or booster requirements imposed by airlines and/or authorities in the destinations they will be visiting- as well as meet any requirements for accessing restaurants and venues, which may be more restrictive than above.

Please note that in Europe today very few countries, venues and airlines require compulsory vaccination, and we expect that trend to continue in to 2023.

Is there anything else I should know?
