Dear Discovery Bicycle Tours Guests,
We continue to monitor the latest guidance on health measures to protect guests ... and the communities we visit ... from COVID-19. We are requiring guests to wear a mask in the van and where requested. The good news is that your tour deposits are still completely refundable (with no penalties for changes) until the final payment date. So you can reserve with confidence.
ALL guests must be "fully vaccinated" for COVID-19. We use the CDC definition, which currently means you must have the full initial series of vaccinations. Boosters are highly recommended but not currently required for U.S. travel. When you sign your release of liability waiver before the tour, you will be asked to certify that you and all in your party are fully vaccinated before the tour. Please bring proof with you. There will be no refunds for not being vaccinated. This policy is subject to change as conditions warrant.
In addition, we recommend taking a COVID-19 test just before departing for your travels. Other than being vaccinated, this currently seems to be the best protection that you won't get ill on the tour.
Our usual office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. There may be short delays as we respond to many inquiries.
Your health is very important to us. All of our leaders and guests are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Please take sensible steps to protect your health. We ask anyone who feels sick to not join the tour and anyone who becomes sick during the tour to notify leaders immediately. International travel may require additional testing, proof of vaccination, or other measures.
LOCAL CONDITIONS CAN CHANGE:
Please monitor policy changes that impact your travel. Remember to check with us before making non-refundable travel arrangements. Choose airfares that are as flexible as possible ... and consider travel insurance. We will continue to try to make our best determination of whether a tour is going at (or before) the final payment date.
GET OUT AND BIKE ...
Take care of yourself and keep cycling!
Scott and Thistle
And the Discovery Bicycle Tours Team
