Travelling with B&R: What to Expect on Future Trips

The mission of Butterfield & Robinson and our partners has always been to provide our travellers with exceptional experiences. Our high standards of service, cleanliness and the well-being of our travellers will continue to be a part of our mandate as we run future trips.

Our aim is to monitor, evaluate and communicate effectively, ensuring that the principles protection, prevention and response are top of mind at all times.

Butterfield & Robinson is actively monitoring the latest information from health authorities and keeping in touch with our global team to assess when and where it will be appropriate for travellers to join us on the road.

When that time comes, here is what we’ll be doing to ensure your safety.

Your Health & Safety

Your health and safety is our top priority. We continue to make adjustments to itineraries wherever required in order to meet all levels of health and safety. We will be reaching out to travellers approximately six weeks before a departure to communicate our most up to date health and safety protocols. Testing prior to travel may be required per local health authorities, or upon arrival. Please consider undergoing COVID-19 testing within 7 days of your departure. If you are unsure of whether a current test will be required prior to your departure, please check with your travel advisor. Health and Safety protocols related to social and physical distancing and enhanced sanitation are in place on all trips. Hand sanitizer will be provided in your welcome package and made readily available throughout your trip. Face coverings will be provided to you when needed, however, we highly encourage you to bring your own. We request that all travellers self-monitor daily for any COVID-19 related symptoms. Travellers who are feeling unwell and exhibiting symptoms must advise their guide, who will undertake our required safety protocols, which include supporting you by seeking medical care.

Your Guides

As always, our highly skilled guide team will be there for you to make sure you’re well-informed and feeling safe throughout your trip. Our guides will be receiving updated training that outlines advanced health and safety protocols for hygiene and sanitation as well as conducting pre-trip safety meetings with our local partners. All guides will complete a brief with other stakeholders of your trip (operations, administration and regional managers) before your trip begins and will adjust logistics should something not be up to standard. You will receive frequent safety briefings to ensure that you have the most up to date information about the events of the day to come.

Group Sizes

Our small group trips never exceed 16 travellers to ensure quality service and a better experience. All necessary precautions will be taken to ensure your comfort and safety, and itineraries may be adjusted accordingly. Remember that you can always take over one of our small group trip dates with your friends or family.

Accommodations

We’ve always hand-picked our hotels, and the trusted relationships we’ve formed with our preferred partners ensure constant and clear communication with regards to their updated safety measures. Before each trip, we will familiarize ourselves with regional health and safety regulations and protocols, and send hotels a checklist of requirements that meet our own standards. If you are planning on taking a private trip with us, you can request to stay at an accommodation that will host only your group like a villa or private home.
