Travel Safely – COVID-19 ADVICE

Helping you navigate this new travel landscape:
When you are ready to travel again, we will be ready for you!

To prepare for the new realities of travel, we have extra safety protocols in place. We will continue to evaluate and enhance these policies according to public health recommendations.

SOCIAL DISTANCING
Small group sizes – We pride ourselves on having the smallest group sizes in the industry!

Face masks and hand sanitizer – Face masks may be required during any provided transportation. We recommend that you bring face coverings and hand sanitizer. We will have a small supply on hand as a backup as well, but you should have these items in your carry-on for your international flights too.

A spacious minibus – We have a spacious minibus which will be sanitized on a daily basis and aired regularly throughout the day.

Dining flexibility – Dining may be in smaller groups and al fresco if possible – have a sweater handy!

On Walking tours we are in The Great Outdoors – a safer way to travel! – We specialize in keeping away from crowds and being out in nature.

Sanitation measures – You Leaders will perform thorough sanitation of vehicles and communal spaces daily. We are constantly reviewing the cleaning protocols with accommodation providers to ensure they comply with the most current safety guidelines.

Travel insurance – It is a requirement of booking with Caspin Journeys Ltd that you have a comprehensive travel insurance protection plan that includes benefits for Cancellation and Interruption for covered reasons such as Trip Delay, Baggage Loss and Delay, Emergency Medical Expenses and Emergency Medical Evacuation, 24-Hour Accidental Death & Dismemberment, 24-Hour Travel Assistance & Concierge Services. You may also want to look into an insurance policy that offers a “cancel for any reason” provision.

Private Groups – Bring your own “social bubble” of friends or family that you want to travel with. Book one of our small group tours exclusive to your group or contact us and choose your dates and your travel companions!

TRAVEL TIPS

If you carry on a pair of slippers to put on in the plane you can travel in your boots giving you more room in your case. Some people find earplugs useful, especially if using city hotels where church bells or traffic may be a nuisance. A small umbrella can be useful for rain and shine protection. Medicines you know are always more comforting, so it is worth bringing a small supply of your favourite cures!

LOST LUGGAGE

To avoid inconvenience in the event of your luggage being misrouted, we recommend that you carry onto the plane your washing kit and medications, a change of clothes, walking boots and day pack.

 

WATER

Water in Europe is drinkable unless it says otherwise, but if you are sensitive may wish to drink bottled water.

 

HOT WEATHER

We do our best to avoid extreme temperatures, but when the sun is out then it is hot so please come prepared with a sun hat and remember to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.

Walking general advice 

The most important tool for a walking tour is a good pair of boots. When you are on your feet all day, hiking, site-seeing or visiting monuments, if your feet are sore then so will be your humour!
Please do take note of this and choose your footwear carefully.
DO NOT bring a brand new pair of boots that have never been worn. DO NOT wear tennis shoes on stony and slippery paths, through puddles and mud. Buy shoes in which YOU feel comfy. Try on different types before purchasing. Do not let aesthetics rule sense 😉
LUGGAGE

Please consider the safety of your and our backs and travel lightly. Many European hotels are in old buildings and do not have elevators. Stations do not have escalators so do be prepared to carry cases up and down stairs. For the safety of our backs, we reserve the right to refuse to carry unduly heavy cases up to the bedrooms.

LUGGAGE ALLOWANCE

1 MEDIUM CASE (60 cm/24″ x 40 cm/16″ x 30 cm/10″) + 1 DAY PACK (40 cm/17″ x 30 cm/10″ x 15 cm/6″).
We have limited space in the minibus and will ask you to pay transfer fees if you exceed these limits. Remember, if you are traveling before or after the tour you will have to carry your luggage up and down steps/stairs! Do pack carefully for the sake of your arms and ours; it is amazing what you can do without!
