Riviera Travel outlines guest health requirements

Riviera Travel has outlined its pre-departure health requirements for all guests on its holidays.

All guests booked on trips must be fully vaccinated against Covid, or present a negative test, before travel.  

Guests not had both doses of the vaccine will be offered a complimentary Covid test to allow their holiday to take place.

The move comes following feedback from guests, including a recent travel survey, which indicated these safeguards should be in place before travel.

They apply to all guests travelling in the same group, as well as Riviera's river and ocean cruise crew members and tour managers.

All crew members will have additional daily temperature checks and regular health screenings.

Riviera requires guests to have received doses of the Covid vaccine, with the second dose a minimum of seven days prior to travel.

Any guest who tests positive prior to their holiday will be able to transfer their booking to an alternative date, free of charge, the company says.

Jim Forward, Riviera Travel chief commercial officer, said: "Ensuring guests' peace of mind is a priority, so we're asking everyone who travels with Riviera to have had the full Covid vaccine or presented a negative test."

Guests who book by 30 April  2021, or new bookings for 2022, can be changed for free up until 30 September  2021. Covid cancellation protection is included as standard.
