Although we are hoping that there will be no impact on travel to and from Ireland, below are some measures that we are currently putting in place to give some reassurance to our guests.
1. Should a government travel ban be put in place during the time you were due to travel to Ireland, then we will offer the option of deferring your booking to a future date.
2. We have implemented special cancellation policies should you be prevented from travelling to Ireland due to Government imposed travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 virus.
3. We advise all people travelling anywhere to have full travel insurance that will cover medical expenses, travel costs, and cancellation fees.
4. We advise checking with your insurance company if they have a Government Travel Advice Benefit (or similar) which you can add to your policy.
5. In addition we suggests that guests check with their own insurance companies for all related travel cover including flights and any additional accommodation outside of your tour.
