We’ll look after you with strict pre-departure health screenings, industry-leading hygiene practices and enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols.

Share special moments with your loved ones during your tour.

Reduced Group Sizes

Our Health and Safety protocols on tour

As an Australian company with the most experience, most awards for excellence, and most comprehensive domestic travel options, the APT Travel Group always has the safety and wellbeing of guests’ front of mind, and now even more so with the approaching return to travel. 

We have been responding to the ever-changing COVID-19 climate by implementing a number of new measures to elevate our health and hygiene protocols giving travellers assurance that they can travel with the APT Travel Group with confidence. 

We have adopted the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) recommendations and have actioned our increased health screenings and protocols for all our cruises, both on board and prior to boarding for all passengers and crew, working with the local authorities as well as our own staff to ensure this is being adhered to.
We are adhering to all requirements and recommendations of IG RiverCruise (the industry association representing European River Cruising) to assure the highest level of passenger and crew health and hygiene on our European River Cruises. 

We are also liaising with our land suppliers in all of our destinations to ensure their health and safety protocols are of the highest standard, such as hotel sanitisation, coach cleaning processes and more.

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.

New Zealand Land Tours

As we prepare to welcome you on one of our New Zealand tours, we have made a few changes to ensure that you, your fellow travellers and our crews are kept safer than ever.

These measures will remain in effect as long as needed, and we will continue to adapt as we evaluate the situation and continue to consult with government health authorities, CLIA, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the relevant local authorities in all of the areas we operate around the world. 

We know that our travellers will venture out into the world again and we are pleased to be enacting these measures to give you peace of mind that we are providing the best Safe Travel Protocols across all our tours and cruises to allow you to travel well with the APT Travel Group. 

*Social distancing requirements will be adhered to as necessary. We are continuing to monitor all directives in the regions we operate and will comply with the Government regulations applicable. We may make changes to this protocol as required and increase guest numbers when we are able to resume our usual touring procedures.
