The Corona Virus (COVID-19) situation continues to rapidly change and presents an emerging challenge for all involved in providing care to vulnerable people, and is presenting a particularly challenging time for our participants wishing to travel.
We at Trusted Travel continue to monitor the situation daily, and take any advice relating to travel from government and world health agencies seriously. There are a number of serious concerns that may place our participants at risk when looking to travel, as well as a number of government enforced regulations banning travel domestically and internationally.
Unfortunately, due to these risks Trusted Travel has decided that the best course of action at this time is to cancel plans for travel to some destinations. The health, wellbeing and safety of our participants and the enjoyment of travelling on holidays without the extra stress are of the upmost importance.
Further to this, a number of events or activities Trusted Travel planned to support participants to attend have also cancelled or closed, meaning Trusted Travel will not be supporting participants to these destinations.
