The list of travel brands updating their COVID-19 vaccination and masking requirements continues to grow. This week, the Globus family of brands announced that it will lift its policy requiring your clients to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Guests booking a vacation that begins on or after March 1, 2023, will no longer need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel on a Globus or Cosmos tour or Avalon Waterways cruise.

Please bear in mind that the company’s previous policy that required all travelers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 remains in effect until March 1, 2023. Anyone traveling before that date on a Globus, Cosmos or Avalon Waterways vacation must be fully vaccinated.

“The health and safety of our guests remains our top priority and while we highly recommend that travelers are vaccinated against COVID-19, after March 1, 2023, we will no longer require it,” said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of Globus family of brands, in a press statement. “Destinations and other transportation operators—like airlines—have their own rules and regulations. It will be up to the responsibility of our guests to understand and comply with those policies to move freely across the globe.”
