MAYFLOWER EXPANDS COVID-19 VACCINE REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL TOURS BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2022

Mayflower Cruises & Tours will continue to operate land tours throughout the United States and around the world, amidst changes to our Travel with Confidence policy. Mayflower will now require all travelers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no less than 14 days prior to departure of their holiday beginning January 1, 2022. 

We have already implemented this mandate for all river cruise departures and several domestic and international departures in 2021. 

We have seen the peace of mind that it instills in our travelers and staff members, knowing that everyone onboard our coaches, vessels and within our groups have taken all the precautions against COVID-19. As we start to gear up for 2022, we want to return to the “new normal” and getting our travelers back out and enjoying the world safely is our number one priority. This mandate will ensure what is best for not just our travelers and staff but for the locations that we are traveling too as well.

Beginning January 1, 2022, all travelers will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (see a list of acceptable vaccines below) no less than 14 days prior to departure on any Mayflower Cruises & Tours holiday. If you have a traveler with a reservation made departing January 1st or beyond and they will not meet these requirements, Mayflower will happily refund them in full. To request your refund, please contact a Mayflower Travel Specialist, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8am and 6pm CST at 800-323-7604. For Group Bookings please contact the Group Department at 800-728-0724. Requests MUST be made no later than November 30, 2021 for a full refund. Requests made after November 30th will be subject to standard cancellation terms.

HEALTH & SAFETY

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

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

Temperature 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.

 

AirportRESPONSIBLE SOCIAL DISTANCING

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

 

CleanCOMMITMENT TO CLEAN

  • As a part of our commitment to clean, we are requiring enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures from our hotel partners and motorcoach companies. Additionally, we are reassured with the knowledge that our airline partners are taking very stringent measures for passenger safety.
  • Tour Managers 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.
  • Travelers are encouraged to bring their own washable face masks; however additional face masks and hand sanitizer will be made available.
  • 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 will also have hand sanitizer available throughout the tour.

 

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.
