Travelmarvel's Health & Safety Protocols

Traditional Coach Tours, 4WD Adventures and Rail Journeys

As we prepare to welcome you on one of our Australian tours, we have made a few changes to ensure that you, your fellow travellers and our crews are kept safer than ever. The wellbeing of everyone onboard has always been of paramount importance, and we have taken steps to elevate our health and hygiene measures further still so that you can travel with Travelmarvel with complete confidence.

Health screenings and COVID-19 testing as required, enhanced sanitation and small group excursions are just some of the changes you will see – though the quality of the service, dining, relaxation and enjoyment that you will experience will remain at the same high standard as they always have.

Before you Leave Home

All our guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel with us. Vaccination status must adhere to the state or territory requirement at the time, which may mean boosters are required. Vaccines need to be up to date. Prior to your tour we require you to upload your Government issued vaccination certificate to our secure portal for us to record that you are fully vaccinated (we won’t keep a copy of the certificate). During your tour you may need to show your Government issued vaccination certificate.

COVID-19 Testing

Testing for COVID-19 will be conducted in line with State government health advice at the time. We recommend you bring a supply of Rapid Antigen Test should they be needed. Self-Drive visitors to our Wilderness Lodges in the Kimberley will need to present a negative Rapid Antigen Test result in order to stay at the lodge.

Health Screening

You will be asked to complete a Health Questionnaire prior to your departure, which must be handed to your crew on arrival.

In addition to APT Travel Group’s Safe Journeys guidelines, the airline you are flying with will have their own guidelines. We ask guests to check these prior to departure.

Social Distancing
Where possible, we will ensure small group sizes to allow for social distancing; and we are working with local health authorities, and other key partners to ensure that our stringent health and safety standards are met while you are on tour with us. Please note where social distancing is not possible, you may be required to wear a face mask.

On Tour Cleaning
We have increased cleaning aboard all vehicles/aircraft whereby frequently touched surfaces will be regularly cleaned with hospital grade cleaning products. Hand sanitiser will be available on all our vehicles/aircraft at all times. Vehicles/aircraft will undergo deep cleaning between tours.

The use of face masks will be in-line with State government health advice at the time. We recommend you bring a supply of face masks should they be needed.

Infection Response Protocols
Guests who present with any COVID-19 symptoms will likely be required to take a test and immediately isolate alongside any members of the same travelling party sharing a room. Our crew and staff will work through the necessary testing requirements, you will be in safe and caring hands. Our aim is to minimise disruption to all passengers when this occurs.
