    PRE-TRIP HEALTH DECLARATION

     

    All team members and guests will complete a personal well-being declaration before joining their trip. If a guest has tested positive for COVID-19 (or is travelling with someone who has), they will not be able to join the trip until cleared as “fit for travel” by a medical professional.

Our Private Chauffeur vehicles have installed discreet protective screens in between the front seats and the back seats; all guests will be asked to sit in the back of the vehicle leaving the front open to allow for extra physical distancing.

Personal Responsibility – COVID-19 Warning 

We have introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you, our other guests, and our team members. 

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the World Health Organization and government health bodies, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. 

We ask that you please take personal responsibility for your wellbeing. This begins with packing any personal protective equipment and sanitizers you require. Please adopt physical distancing and hygiene practices throughout your pre-trip travel arrangements and follow all health instruction whether physical signage, or requests from our professional staff once you are vacationing with us. 

In choosing to travel with Brendan Vacations, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. 

Let’s help keep each other safe and healthy.
