Health & Wellbeing on Tour

01 December 17

Communicating to our travellers the importance of staying healthy on tour.

With the usual case of sickness experienced throughout each season, the main culprit always seems to be the common cold. When left untreated, viruses such as the common cold, can spread swiftly throughout the coach. At every opportunity whether it’s pre tour or on tour, we promote the importance of being fit to travel not only for traveller’s own holiday enjoyment but also for the enjoyment of their fellow travellers.

This season, we introduced a laminated information card ‘staying healthy on tour’ for every Coach Captain/Tour Guide to distribute amongst traveller’s on board the coach for their review. In addition to the Health & Safety DVD being played, the distribution of this information card to our travellers is aimed to further stress the importance of attending to their personal hygiene and seeking medical attention early should they begin to feel unwell. In addition, it outlines the coach cleaning guidelines our Coach Captains follow i.e. spraying and cleaning the coach plus wiping down the handrails, plus it provides a short explanation of the coach air conditioning system.

Whilst we regularly review the management of illness on tour and we are confident that we are doing all possible to ward off viruses, reiterating the message to all travellers to seek medical attention early is vital in preventing the spread of viruses to others.

Coach Captains, please ensure you see Malcolm or Karen for your copy of the ‘staying healthy on tour’ laminated card. You should at least have a couple copies available on board your coach for distribution to travellers.
