Back doing what we do best...

Aeolian Islands tour - Sep 2020

In the midst of all the rather depressing news at the moment, we are delighted to share with you some wonderful pictures from our first tour to operate since March!

Twenty five people travelled to Sicily to the lovely Aeolian Islands to stay at the charming Rocce Azzurre Hotel, some to undertake a detailed walking tour with Tullio Scurria, our long-term Sicily resident and guide, some to enjoy the scenery and a few excursions, led by Angela Minton, our longest-serving tour manager, whose first tour for us was in a previous century!  Needless to say, the welcome extended by the hotel and everyone in the Aeolians was as warm as the early Autumn sunshine, bolstered by superb food, wine and treats. Our guests’ safety was paramount at all times and the hotel, coach company and ferry operators were diligent in applying the safety measures that were advised.

These pictures give some idea of the fun that was had by all and reminds us of how wonderful it is to travel, to make new friends, experience a different cuisine and escape the ordinary. We have been creating these experiences for more than 26 years and it has been great to remind ourselves of our raison d’etre and that the world will return to normal sooner or later and we can resume normal service.

Keeping You Safe on Your Travel Editions Tour

Despite the good news about an end in sight to the pandemic restrictions with the coming of the vaccines, Travel Editions will not be easing up on our concern for your well-being. It is critical to us that you, our valued customers, feel both safe and confident to travel, and, just as importantly, are as safe as it is possible to be, when on tour. Of course, the information, scientific advice and government rules are changing on an almost daily basis, but rest assured that your safety is our number one consideration when assessing if a tour should go ahead and what measures need to be implemented to ensure that it operates as safely as possible.

Our preparations for your safety

• Ahead of your departure, we’ll send you a free ‘Travel Safe’ kit containing face masks, flight-friendly bottles of hand sanitiser and packs of anti-bacterial wipes.
• We will ensure that coach companies deep clean the coach prior to each tour and disinfect at the end of each day and, where possible, during stops, to minimise the risk of infection and bacteria spreading.
• Our tour managers’ and guides’ safety is also paramount – we need them to stay healthy to ensure the smooth running and delivery of the tour. So baggage handling needs to be undertaken by each member of the group and cross handling kept to a minimum. The “baggageman” service may be something to consider on our train and UK tours, if this is an issue for you.
• Our insurance provider offers COVID-19 coverage in the event that you should fall ill on holiday as a result of the virus and need to return home.

Ensuring social distancing measures

• On all our tours (where applicable) we will include “Whisper” headsets so that guests can socially distance but still clearly hear the commentary from the guide/tour manager/lecturer.
• We will use coaches with more seats than passengers on the tour so that as much social distancing is maintained as possible. Where necessary and as numbers dictate, we will use two coaches to ensure that the appropriate and approved social distancing measures advised at the time can be met.
• At hotels and restaurants, we will request all partner suppliers use oversized rooms where possible when providing group meals, to maintain a sensible social distance to ensure guests feel, and stay, as safe as possible.
• We will also ensure that places visited have measures in place to maximise social distancing in compliance with any current guidelines.
• We will reduce capacity on tours as appropriate, to ensure that social distance rules can be met.
• We would also ask that all guests play a part in ensuring that they observe all protocols in place. Our tour managers will be instructed to emphasise this at all times.

Easy amendments & flexible booking conditions

• It is not clear as yet, which venues will be able to accept groups and on what basis. We will constantly monitor each and every tour to ensure that it can be delivered as close to the advertised programme as possible. When a change is required, we will do our utmost to ensure that this information is advised as soon as possible.
• COVID 19 refund promise - 100% money back if you’re required to self-isolate due to COVID-19 and unable to travel. We will obviously require authentication if this is the case.

Keeping track of Covid-19 protocols

Clearly, no-one can guarantee 100% safety from this or any other virus, but it is sensible and responsible for us to foresee issues and plan for them so that our clients feel as safe as possible and are exposed to a minimum level of risk. It may be that scientific advances preclude the need for some or all of these measures, and we are obviously hopeful that this is the case. For some people, any risk is too much and we respect that decision, too, but we would like to assure those who want to travel, that our tours will be as safe as possible within reasonable constraints.
