Covid-19 Requirements: The wellbeing of our travelers is our top priority. That’s why we’re updating our vaccination policy to require all travelers on Contiki trips to be fully vaccinated to travel with us until the end of 2022.As well as keeping our travelers safe, a core principle of how we operate is protecting the communities we visit. It’s vital that we make sure those communities also feel safe, and that we all minimise, as much as possible, anyone’s chances of travelling with, picking up or passing on COVID-19. This is part of operating responsibly - especially in countries with more vulnerable populations or low access to vaccines.Additionally, many venues around the world are now requiring proof of vaccination for indoor activities such as dining in restaurants or visiting museums. We want everyone who travels with Contiki to have the best experience possible, so when faced with having to exclude travelers from activities, we feel that requiring all travelers to be vaccinated is the most responsible choice.Your final vaccine dose must have been administered a minimum of 15 days prior to the start of the trip. We will continue to monitor the local requirements and update the policy accordingly.Travelers will also need to comply with specific requirements imposed by airlines and/or governments which may differ from the above.
