Travel & the Coronavirus
Updated March 6, 2020 1400hrs CET
Fresh Eire Adventures takes the safety of our guests seriously—it’s paramount. We’re closely monitoring COVID-19, commonly known as the “novel coronavirus,” and are obtaining updates multiple times a day from a wide variety of government agencies, heath experts and local partners. We are not influenced by attention grabbing media headlines and we encourage our guests to rely only on reliable sources.
To ensure an effective and timely response to any new developments, we are updating a few key policies particularly in relation to cancellations in affected territories.
If you are worried about your 2020 trip scheduled to run in April or May 2020 please contact us by email - email@example.com.
As we adapt to this fluid situation we will post updates here.
Will Fresh Eire Adventures Run Tours?
Our goal is to keep guests safe while still enabling as many people as possible to safely travel in confidence.
WE CURRENTLY HAVE NO PLANS TO CANCEL ANY OF OUR SCHEDUELD TOURS.
Only where necessarywe plan to cancel tours 40 days prior to departure if our trusted sources advise against travel to the region. In that event, guests will have the option of transferring to a different lower-risk destination (such as a destination with a lower population density), or receive a travel credit to be used on another tour before December 31 2021.
All guests must make their own evaluations about what feels safe to them.
As always we strongly advise having top tier travel insurance where you can cancel your plans without penalty. At this time no insurance company will state whether they will cover cancellation directly relating to an out-break of Coronavirus; this however should not affect your decision. The best policies allow cancellation for any reason; be sure to read the fine print however.
Deciding Whether or Not to Cancel
Ultimately, each guest’s decision on whether to travel is their own. While we are happy to share information from health authorities and clarify our policies, no one knows better than you what your personal priorities, health needs, and feelings about risk might be.
