What Is Expected of You

We've taken steps to prepare for Traveling Safe Together, but when it comes to maintaining a safe and healthy journey, there are a few things that we will require of you to ensure your wellness as well as that of your fellow travelers. In particular, all guests traveling on a Vacations By Rail escorted rail tour are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 effective with the 2022 tour season.

Additional individual safe travel expectations including:


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Use of face coverings is required on trains for every travel style and on the motor coach for escorted tours as well as throughout many excursions on tour, regardless of vaccination status. You are responsible for providing your own PPE. We recommend that you bring, at minimum, a mask. We encourage the use of a surgical, N95 or KN95 variety. You may also wish to bring a face shield, gloves and/or other personal PPE as you feel necessary.


Physical distancing

Protocols are employed to ensure adequate social distancing on transportation and during sightseeing and excursions for all trips as well as during meals on escorted tours. We ask that you please be considerate of others and do your best to maintain at least 6-feet between yourself and others.


Individual hygiene

We encourage all travelers to engage in frequent handwashing and liberal use of hand sanitizer, especially when hand washing is not an option.


Self-health monitoring

If you feel ill and/or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not travel. If you are traveling on one of our escorted rail tours and feel unwell while traveling, please notify your Tour Manager. If you are traveling on an Independent itinerary, please follow the CDC and local guidelines, self-isolate and seek medical attention.
