Coronavirus Updates

Majority of EU Countries Remain Open for Vaccinated Travelers

The European Union has recommended that travel restrictions be reinstated for visitors from the United States. It will now be up to each individual member country to evaluate this new advice and decide whether or not they will update current entry requirements. As of today, most EU member countries remain open for fully vaccinated travelers. This underscores our decision to only operate tours with vaccinated travelers. We are monitoring each country to see if any Gate 1 tour will be affected. Should your tour become affected, we will notify you by email. 

Gate 1 Vaccination Requirement

Our primary focus will always be the safety and health of our passengers, staff and the communities we visit. With this in mind, we require all travelers to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 prior to joining their tour or river cruise. This requirement will remain in place until guidance changes from health organizations and governments.

Additional requirements may exist based on your itinerary and enforced by airlines, government agencies, and local businesses.

Current Travel Restrictions by Country

We have partnered with Sherpa to provide you with current travel restrictions and requirements for all countries. As guidelines are constantly changing and evolving, this information is updated multiple times a day so we encourage you to check back frequently.

You will find that many countries require that travelers complete specific forms and documentation prior to travel. Due to the frequently changing guidelines, we recommend that you wait to complete required documentation closer to your departure date.

Trip Protection

We encourage all travelers to protect themselves against the unexpected. Coverage includes trip cancellation, interruption and delay benefits. Medical coverage applies for illness or injury, and includes coverage for travelers who contract Covid-19 and/or who are forced to quarantine in their destination. And all new policy purchases now include the Cancel for Any Reason waiver benefit, providing additional peace of mind and flexibility prior to departure. Click here for more information.
