Travel Vaccination Policy Update
Latest update September 8, 2021 14:30pm BST
Your wellbeing is a top priority, and to deliver a seamless travel experience, all travelers booked with Contiki are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to travel with us. This policy is effective immediately for travel through December 31, 2022.
As well as keeping our travelers safe, a core principle of how we operate is protecting the communities we visit. It’s vital that we make sure those communities also feel safe, and that we all minimise, as much as possible, anyone’s chances of travelling with, picking up or passing on COVID-19. This is part of operating responsibly - especially in countries with more vulnerable populations or low access to vaccines.
Additionally, many venues around the world are now requiring proof of vaccination or proof of a negative coronavirus test within 48 hours for indoor activities such as dining in restaurants or visiting museums. We want everyone who travels with Contiki to have the best experience possible, so when faced with having to exclude travelers from activities and subject them to frequent out-of-pocket on-trip testing, we feel that requiring all travelers to be vaccinated to be the most responsible choice.
Your final vaccine dose must have been administered a minimum of 15 days prior to the start of the trip. We will continue to monitor the local requirements and update the policy accordingly.
What does this mean for you:
- You must be fully vaccinated to travel with us. This applies to all Contiki trips, for both international and domestic travel.
- Fully vaccinated travelers must have proof of vaccination showing they received their last required dose at least 15 days before the start of the trip.
- Proof of vaccine must show the traveler’s full name and must match the name on the passport or any other recognized travel document. Proof of vaccine can be in either printed or digital format.
As always our team of experts are on hand to help on the phone or web chat if you have any questions about traveling with Contiki, need help with an existing booking or want any more info.
