Important update regarding the conflict in Ukraine

The Stalingrad: Turning Point of the Eastern Front tour has been cancelled and customers have been contacted.

Several of our tours visit countries that are in close proximity to Ukraine, however these are scheduled to go ahead. These include:

  • Understanding the Holocaust, Auschwitz, Kraków & Schindler’s Factory by Air
  • Air War Europe: Colditz, Dambusters & the Great Escape
  • Gdansk – Opening Shots of WW2 by Air

We understand that some customers may be reluctant to go on these tours, and therefore, you can move free of charge to a different tour this year, or alternatively, the same tour or a different tour in 2023.

All other tours are scheduled to go ahead.

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been closely monitoring Government guidelines. As of today, there are no specific restrictions around the number of people on coaches, however, in order to make your journey as safe and comfortable as possible, we’re putting the following into practice:

  1. 1. It is recommended that you bring your own face covering and to wear it throughout your journey on the coach.
  2. 2. At your joining point, each customer will be temperature checked before entering the vehicle. Any customer who has a temperature above 37.5 degrees will be advised that they can’t travel. They will receive a full credit to be used against another holiday, less a £20pp administration fee.
  3. 3. We will provide hand sanitiser on board the coach that must be used upon entrance and exit of the vehicle.

All customers should follow sensible guidance to reduce their risk of exposure to Coronavirus while this outbreak is ongoing. Viruses can easily be passed from person to person, however the best preventative measure to stop the spread of infections is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap, then rinse them well under running water. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Always cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands with soap and water.
