2021 UK/Europe Summer Tours FAQs

What steps are Albatross Tours taking to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing of travellers on tour?

Our number one priority is your safety and to ensure that you can travel with confidence on an Albatross tour.

With our small groups and full-size coaches, we can maintain a much safer person to person distancing whilst on board. You get so much more personal room. Our longer stays in smaller, traditional hotels ensure fewer transitions between hotels and less transient guests in each place that we stay.

We will continue to work with our travel partners and staff to maintain our stringent hygiene and sanitary practices. These have been reviewed and elevated even further.

In addition to the experience of our trained tour managers, Albatross provides 24-7 support for every Albatross tour in operation. We have a fully-trained crisis management team ready to deploy in the event of any serious incident or situation on one of our tours, including any impact from coronavirus or any other health threat.

When will my 2021 Albatross tour be guaranteed to depart?

Our departures will be guaranteed once we reach a minimum viable number of travellers booked and government travel restrictions have eased. We will continue to keep you informed should there be any changes.


What will happen if my 2021 Albatross tour cannot depart due to DFAT travel advice or overseas travel restrictions?

If Albatross is unable to operate your 2021 tour due to DFAT travel advice and/or as a result of overseas travel restrictions, we will work with you to change your booking to a future Albatross tour departure. If you have an Albatross Tours travel credit, this will be extended in full to another Albatross tour departure of your choice.


Will the tour price for Summer 2021 be the same as Summer 2020?

Supplier prices vary marginally year on year, and exchange rates fluctuate. However, we will work to ensure that any price increase is kept to a minimum.

Please note some of our tour itineraries have changed slightly (please refer to our 2021 Summer Tour Preview page for itinerary changes), which may result in a change to the tour price, up or down. We will notify you of the final tour price in September 2020.

When can we expect confirmation of our booking and tour price?

Prices will be set in September 2020. Our team will then be in contact to confirm your space and tour price.
