If you're travelling with us during COVID-19, there are a few additional safety precautions that you’ll need to agree to.
On Day 1 of your trip at the Welcome Meeting, all travellers will be required to fill out a health questionnaire asking you to disclose whether you’ve been diagnosed with, had symptoms of, or knowingly been in close contact of anyone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days. We also recommend all travellers check the government foreign travel advice of both your home country and the destinations you are travelling to, to ensure you have the most up-to-date information about entry requirements and any potential quarantine periods.
Intrepid Travel has received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp, which provides travellers with the assurance that we have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols – so you can experience ‘Safe Travels’.
We understand that sometimes plans change. That’s why, whether you’re unwell or simply change your mind about travelling, when you book with us you have the flexibility** to change your plans – with assurance that you’ll have options to re-book when it suits you.
Frequently asked questions
At the Welcome Meeting you will be asked to complete a self-screening health form and report any COVID-19 symptoms as well as any close contact with someone who has suspected or confirmed COVID-19. If you are displaying any symptoms or have any health concerns at this time, we will assist you to seek medical advice and will follow all directions from local health authorities regarding COVID-19 testing or quarantine. You may not be permitted to join the trip if local health advice is that you need to self-isolate. We ask that all travellers continue to monitor their health throughout their travels and report any relevant symptoms or concerns.
If you display any symptoms or health concerns at either the welcome meeting or during the trip and are unable to continue travelling with us due to a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 on your trip, we can offer you a credit voucher for the unused days of your trip.
Intrepid supports the use of masks as one way to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Wearing a face mask provides an additional physical barrier and helps to reduce community transmission. The World Health Organization also recommends wearing masks in destinations with widespread community transmission when physical distancing is difficult.
You will need to wear a mask prior to the health screening at the group meeting. After that, when and where a mask is required will depend on the government advice in the destination. You leader will brief you on mask wearing throughout the trip. Ensure you familiarise yourself with how to safely wear, handle, wash or dispose of masks when wearing them while travelling.
We advise you to contact your airline as well as check the foreign travel advice for your destination regarding wearing masks before travelling as you will need to bring your supply own from home to cover the duration of your travels. While our leaders carry masks as part of their first aid kits, we are unable to provide masks for daily use for travellers.
