When the world opens again, we’ll be ready—and you can travel with us knowing we put your health and well-being first. For over 50 years, EF has been a leader in the travel industry, and now we’re setting the standards for a safer future.
Our team around the globe works collaboratively with our partners so that each portion of your tour adheres to standards outlined by the CDC, WHO, and governmental agencies worldwide.
We will be asking all travelers to complete a pre-tour health check form before departure.
All travelers should closely monitor their health throughout their tour. Your Tour Director and EF Global Emergency Support team have been trained on how to support travelers should they feel ill during their journey.
Hand sanitizer will be provided on the bus and, should local regulations require the use of face masks, we will provide one for all of our travelers on tour.
To ensure appropriate physical distancing, our tours will run at smaller group sizes for the comfort of our guests.
Your private coach will be thoroughly cleaned before your group boards the bus, and regularly thereafter. Our bus drivers are all being trained in best practices to provide the safest possible environment. Empty seats will allow for physical distancing between passengers.
All our local staff, including your expert Tour Director, will be ready to explain and enforce all guidelines in the destinations you are traveling to and will set an example by always following these rules themselves.
Portions of your tour may be adjusted to accommodate physical distancing requirements. We will continue to work closely with our local partners to ensure appropriate physical distancing at sites and during meals, and may make adjustments to avoid crowded locations and peak times.
Our commitment is to work with hotels that practice enhanced cleaning measures including deep-cleaning procedures in common areas, as well as in disinfecting guest rooms.
As one of the largest travel companies in the world, EF has an on-the-ground presence in over 50 countries. You're supported by our worldwide Safety & Incident Response team, who are available 24/7 on three different continents—and make your group’s safe and enjoyable travel experience their top priority.
You can feel confident to plan future travel during these uncertain times.
