But now that most international borders have opened up, with minimal to zero Covid-19 restrictions for vaccinated travellers, it looks like all of our travel dreams are coming true.

Not sure where to go? As travel experts with a global overview, Chan Brothers Travel can help you decide on the best destination. They advise on border and safety measures while making sure you have all the travel documents and entry requirements. They also ensure you receive the most updated information about your destination and home, both before and during your trip.

Tours are also organised in smaller groups as compared to pre-pandemic times to ensure better physical distancing and that hygiene protocols are met. Complimentary care kits comprising face masks, hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wet wipes are prepared and distributed to each traveller.

The highest hygiene and safety protocols aligned with the globally recognised SafeTravels protocols by World Travel and Tourism Council, are also put in place by Chan Brothers Travel and its trusted partners, with regard to transport, dining and accommodation. This means disinfected coaches, spaced-out restaurant seating, individual hotel check-ins, temperature checks daily and audio tours to minimise group congregations in public areas.

Safety is always a top priority. Watch the video below on how Chan Brothers Travel implement Travel Safe, Travel Smart protocols while their customers are on the tour.

Tour leaders will have a list of medical facilities along the tour route at hand for emergencies. They will also be fully apprised of all the contingency plans for “what if” situations and are equipped with ART test kits. So, if there is a suspected case of Covid-19 within the group, a self-administered ART test will be quickly performed. If it is positive, local health authorities will be informed and arrangements for a Covid-19 test made. If that is found positive, further arrangements will be made through a local partner for the necessary process as required by the local destination. The rest of the group will proceed with the tour once they test negative with the ART test.
