THE CHANGING FACE OF TOURISM
In response to the ever-changing face of global travel; and with all the resilience, passion and commitment of the UK tourism industry, there have been many initiatives and protocols put in place over the past few months to ensure the safety and security of visitors at all times. We have been compiling detailed lists of all our products, not only with their current status but also supplying a link to their “Covid-19 Safety Guidelines”. These can be used to reassure yourselves as much as your clients of the steps the UK & Ireland are taking and the plans already in place ready for your clients.
With a constantly updating situation & regional restrictions everything is subject to change.

ACCOMMODATION

We have detailed a comprehensive accommodation portfolio in order to provide our clients with property specific updates on all Covid-19 protocols and new health & safety policies.

A link is provided directly to each hotels’ Covid-safety guidelines page along with the operational status.  This will be amended and updated as things progress and develop.

PRIVATE TRANSFERS & GUIDING FOR INDIVIDUALS

Working with our core suppliers and in line with government advice we have prepared our “Covid-Safe” procedures for private transfers & guiding for individuals. Expectations can be set with regards to individuals taking private transfers, guiding and extended touring services though ASA. These will remain in place, and continue to be adapted if required, for as long as is deemed necessary according to local Government advice.

Many changes have had to be made in the way in which guests are greeted, luggage is handled and embarking / disembarking vehicles is to be managed – along with hygiene and cleanliness protocols.

ATTRACTIONS

As the majority of attractions re-open, full measures have been taken to make each environment safe to visit.  Pre-booking is now required in the majority of cases which means open vouchers are currently not accepted at those sites.  We hope that these requirements will only be temporary and that the voucher system will return sometime in 2021.

SIGHTSEEING

Most sightseeing operators are now running full or reduced services across the UK, however schedules remain changeable or limited with more services being added as demand increases.
