Smaller group sizes and supplying guests with hand sanitizer and masks are some of the measures The Travel Corporation will be following once its holiday brands resume travel again.
And when is this said travel resuming? “As soon as we can,” said AAT Kings Group CEO Matt Cameron-Smith.
“Like the rest of the industry, we are waiting on advice regarding borders opening so we can work with local and regional tourism operators to ensure travel plays a role in regional economic recovery,” he said.
Once back on the road AAT Kings, Inspiring Journeys, Trafalgar and Insight Vacations trips will be operating between 20 to 24 guests maximum with a capacity of 48 seats to ensure appropriate distancing throughout the trip.
Matt explained that TTC would also be installing contactless hand sanitising dispensers on all vehicles across the fleet and they would also have a supply of masks on hand, should any guest feel they require one.
“We also have response kits on all vehicles with every member of the team having completed the Federal Department of Health Covod-19 training program so they know how to manage guests in accordance with government guidelines,” he said.
TTC’s coaches will continue to be sanitised before the start of each trip and the drivers will now be trained with the latest hygiene protocols and will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis.
They are also planning to only work with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their hygiene standards.
TTC will be hosting agent training webinars on the future of travel and these newly enhanced protocols to assist agents in preparing for our new world.
Travel agents will also receive brand emails and updates from their Sales Managers with dates and session times so they can register for these webinars.
