NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 28, 2021
Today, smarTours, the leading provider of affordable trips to bucket list destinations, announced the company’s international tours will resume starting in May. Improving travel restrictions and vaccination efforts will allow for the company’s first international tours to depart after a year-plus hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The first two tours will travel to Costa Rica (May 10th departure) and Egypt (June 21st departure) with additional tours including Alaska, Greece, South Africa, Kenya, UAE, and Peru planned throughout the summer.
All smarTours will include comprehensive Covid safety precautions including individual safety packs, advanced emergency action plan, a list of health services and institutions in each destination, daily disinfecting of the bus, avoiding overcrowded destinations, contactless check-ins, alternatives to buffet meals, and social distancing practices throughout the tour. In addition, the company will coordinate group testing before returning to the U.S.
“One lesson from the pandemic is to take advantage of the time you have and see the places you want to see,” says Christine Petersen, CEO of smarTours. “Travelers are ready to check off bucket list destinations and experiences. Revenge travel is definitely a trend! We are thrilled to be first taking travelers to Costa Rica and Egypt followed by many destinations across the globe.”
