Globus World Travel Insights
By Tony Tizard
Last week’s speaker was Kate Imrie, the Development Manager for Globus Travel. She covers the area of New Zealand from Napier to Invercargill. The Globus group of companies are a privately owned Swiss family company and have been in operation in the travel business from 1928.
The Covid pandemic has been responsible for the company implementing new strict cleaning protocols on their coach and ship fleets throughout the world. Measures include daily cleaning of all transport. They limit coach passengers to 24 but continue to use 48-seater vehicles thus providing proper social distancing.
Kate gave a broad outline of the 14 new Australia and New Zealand tours on offer for 2022.  She then outlined the rules governing cleaning of all products taken on board Avalon’s river cruising vessels and the regular hourly cleaning of the public areas on board. All travellers must have had a Covid vaccine and have completed a Covid free test before boarding. Client safety is of prime importance.
Kate closed by outlining the environmental project that Globus are supporting: “The Great Ocean Clean-up”.
