Mayflower Cruises & Tours Health and Safety

Updated Oct 3, 2022



Click here for the CDC’s latest recommendations for travel in the U.S.

From January 1, 2023, onward, Covid-19 vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended, but will no longer be required.
We will continue to require guests to complete a health and safety form prior to the departure of the tour, which mirrors current CDC guideline recommendations.

Mayflower Cruises & Tours has been committed to the safety, health, and well-being of our travelers for over 40 years. While things have changed in our world, our commitment to our travelers remains as solid as ever.

Please note that regardless of our Vaccine policy, travelers will need to comply with specific vaccine and/or booster requirements imposed by airlines and/or authorities in the destination visited, as well as requirements for accessing restaurants and venues, which may be more restrictive than above. It is guests’ responsibility to check the entry requirements of their destination prior to departure and to ensure that they comply at all times with these requirements. No refunds will be given if travelers are unable to undertake some or all of their vacation due to their failure to comply with these requirements.

This policy is subject to change at any time, without notice.
We very much value your patronage and will always do what is necessary to ensure your safe and enjoyable travel.


To ensure your health, safety and peace-of-mind while traveling with us, we have established a “Travel with Confidence” program, with enhanced safety measures and procedures throughout our tours, from start to finish.

The following areas address our commitment to exceed industry and CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) standards, providing a safe and clean environment for all.

Enhanced Screening

We are implementing new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to ensure travelers a safe start to their tour.  Travelers will be asked to sign off on a few basic Covid-19 related health questions before joining the tour.  We will conduct touchless temperature checks for both travelers and staff at the start of the tour, as well as monitoring throughout the tour. 

Responsible Social Distancing 

We will endeavor to practice safe distancing for our guests throughout the journey, on coaches and during excursions. Travelers are encouraged to bring their own washable face masks; however additional face masks and hand sanitizer will be made available. Masks will be used by travelers and staff alike at any time where social proximity could be an issue.  We will also reduce group sizes to abide by social distancing guidelines.  And wireless listening technology for many of our tours will help enable safe distances between travelers on excursions.

Commitment to Clean

As a part of our commitment to clean, we are requiring enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures from our hotel partners and motor coach companies.  Additionally, we are reassured with the knowledge that our airline partners are taking very stringent measures for passenger safety. 

Tour Directors will be trained in new and enhanced hygiene procedures and they will be in constant contact with Mayflower’s Operations support team for added reassurance. The disinfecting and hand sanitizing procedures that we and our travel partners are implementing meet or exceed those recommended by the CDC. 

In order to maintain cleanliness during the tour, we are minimizing the amount of contact points for our travelers by revising the ways meals, coach seating, hotel check-in and other activities are carried out.

We Look Forward to Welcoming You Back

We have always been committed to the health and safety of our travelers and team members, but we are raising the bar to an even higher level to ensure they are able to continue to enjoy the freedom to experience the wonder and joy of travel.

Mayflower will continue to review and update our safety protocols, following the standards set forth by travel and health agencies across the globe, including the European Centre for Disease Prevention (ECDC), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA).
