Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold mandate vaccinations for all trips

Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold will now require all travelers to be fully vaccinated for all trips (excluding Australia and New Zealand) from 1 September to the end of 2021.

Guests booked with the brands will need to provide proof of an approved Covid-19 vaccination to their Wellbeing Director, Travel Director or Traveling Concierge before joining the tour and also upon arrival to their destination.

Guests will also need to comply with specific PCR testing requirements imposed by airlines and/or the destinations, which may differ from country to country.

"The decision to require our guests to be fully vaccinated will allow for a more seamless travel experience, providing extra peace of mind and confidence when booking our tours," said Guy Young, president of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold.

"As the pandemic continues to evolve, countries in Europe and elsewhere are now requiring proof of vaccination to enter indoor venues such as museums and restaurants, making it challenging to navigate destinations without being vaccinated."

To show proof of vaccination for their trip, all guests will be asked to provide a  valid Covid-19 vaccination certificate which can be electronic or paper, showing the date and time of the vaccination(s), with the final dose given at least 15 days before the start of the tour.

Any testing that is required pre-travel will be the responsibility of the guest to organize, and the Well-Being Director or Travel Director/Concierge will facilitate any additional testing requirements for travelers while on tour.

Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold's new Well-Being Directors will be present on tours with 20 or more travelers.

They are trained to provide additional support and assistance to guests for the latest hygiene and social distancing protocols.

Both tour operators have launched a webpage showing the specific travel requirements by country.
