COVID-19 Update: 27 March 2020
“The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted global travel to an unprecedented extent.”
– Smartraveller 26 Mar 2020
On 18 March 2020, the Australian Government imposed a Level 4 Travel Advisory – DO NOT TRAVEL OVERSEAS
One week later the ban was extended to include domestic travel.
We trust everyone will understand this is for nationwide health safety.
Most countries worldwide have closed their borders to tourists, & many airlines are effectively grounded.
We envisage this will affect plans for travel from now until at least 31 May & possibly as late as August.
To protect the vast sums of money involved, for all our stakeholders, we encourage everyone to postpone
travel arrangements to the same time next year (unless you wish to choose a different date).
At Swagman Tours, from 1 April 2020:
* All amended bookings will, as usual, be subject to currency fluctuations & possible rate increases,
although we are waiving our initial amendment fee & encouraging our suppliers to honour 2020 rates into 2021.
* All cancelled bookings will incur fees as per our Terms & Conditions and, due to the force majeure Covid-19 event, may incur extra fees due to circumstances outside our control. Refunds will be issued in the form of credit notes to be used towards future travel arrangements. Travel date restrictions may apply, please ask your Swagman consultant for more information regarding the conditions affecting your booking.
We are assessing all bookings on an individual basis, conferring with our many travel partners & suppliers;
please be patient as we inspect these in chronological order.
We trust you will all stay safe in these unsettled times & look forward to creating new adventures.
It is a great time to plan for travel later in the year or into 2021,
and we are excited to offer travel options for you in
Africa, India, Sri Lanka, the Middle East, & now
