Travel with Confidence
SINGLES TRAVEL INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL WITH CONFIDENCE PROMISE
VACCINES REQUIRED FOR EVERY CRUISE & TOUR
The safety and well-being of our members remains our highest priority. We continue to advocate with all of our partner-suppliers to ensure that safety protocols are meeting or exceeding those guidelines defined by the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the U.S. State Department.
As a result of the latest travel intel from our recent singles travel programs in the USA and abroad, that local suppliers such as restaurants, museums and other attractions are increasingly requesting that our members provide proof of vaccination, our team recognizes the need to protect our members vacation experience. We don’t want you to miss out on anything! Therefore, beginning September 30, 2021, please be prepared to show proof of vaccination as requested by local authorities. Our FAQs, Fit & Willing Commitment and Final Vacation Details & Meetup Info document will outline requirements on a trip by trip basis.
While the COVID-19 outbreak was unexpected, we are nonetheless well-prepared to address it. Our seasoned Response Team is meeting regularly and managing this situation with great skill and resolve. During our 28-year history we have faced many challenges, including 9/11, SARS, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, political and economic upheavals, the H1N1 outbreak, and we have persevered, continuing to draw upon the wisdom and lessons learned from these events.
We are all in this together and look forward to a day very soon where we will celebrate life the way we have always done. We remain committed to fulfilling lifelong travel dreams and are grateful for the beautiful mysteries yet to be discovered together with you, our members!
CEO, Singles Travel International
THE singles travel international team COMMITMENT
From the moment you start dreaming until you return home, our entire team is here for you, to address any questions and concerns that you may have about your vacation. Our New Trip Development Team is partnering with vendors that meet or exceed safety protocols. Our Sales Team is ready to help you book your next adventure. Our Tour Concierge Team is available to you 24/7 while on your vacation and is trained in the most up-to-date health and safety regulations. If they ask you to wear a mask, take a few steps backwards, or use hand gel, please comply with their request. They are doing it for your safety as well as the safety of those around you.
A complimentary KN95 mask will be provided for each member of our tour.
Travel with trust
To help make everyone feel more safe, members will now be asked to sign a mandatory “Fit and Willing to Travel” affidavit for all bookings, showing your best intentions to join in the fun while helping all of us stay safe as we enjoy the destination. This may include, but is not limited to, using hand sanitizer before boarding shared vehicles, wearing a face mask when in an enclosed space such as on a bus, practicing a minimum six-foot social distance where required, submitting to daily, infrared temperature readings, adhering to local safety guidelines as well as those of our partner-suppliers, and following directions as requested by our Tour Concierge.
When Vaccine Requirements Make Sense
Because many of our destinations have vaccination requirements for indoor experiences (museums, restaurants, attractions, etc.), for all departures on or after September 30, 2021, it serves our members as a whole to require that everyone be fully vaccinated and carry proof with them to show as needed while on our vacations. This new requirement should not only provide an extra layer of confidence to our members but will offer them the most seamless and enjoyable travel experience. We have become experts on assisting our members for both domestic and international travel requirements and will continue to monitor local requirements and update our policies accordingly.
smaller group size
In a recent survey, members told us that they preferred group sizes of no more than 15 and we will honor your preference effective immediately. Having smaller group sizes allows us all to practice social distancing while still encouraging members to connect with each other in a new way. This also permits the opportunity to access places that may not be available to larger groups, making our events more special.
As policies change frequently, STI continually monitors those up-to-date changes and will help guide members when booking airfare on their own or through STI.
Singles Travel International has always used private vehicles, exclusive to our single members on every tour. Now, we’ll practice assigned seating to maintain social distancing and ask that you wear a mask and sanitize before boarding our vehicles.
Tours & Excursions
As we cultivate our land tours, weekends and excursions, be confident that our vacation partners are in compliance with local safety regulations such as deep cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing, single use materials and wearing of masks.
We continue to partner with companies such as Star Clippers, Avalon Waterways and Paul Gauguin, who operate smaller ships with total occupancy of 250 or fewer. Data shows that smaller vessels have a clean record in terms of guests not contracting COVID-19 aboard their vessels and have been quick to adopt safety measures which are more manageable with their smaller sized ships.
REST EASY accommodations
We are partnering with hotel properties that provide comprehensive safety and sanitation training for their entire staff including Housekeeping, Laundry, Maintenance, Food & Beverage, Public Area, Hotel Operations and Security. Additionally, guests and employees will be advised to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from other groups of people not traveling with them.
Single is Safer
Singles Travel International offers Your Own Room options for all of our trips in case sharing is not your idea of a safe vacation.
Instead of sharing, become a PREMIUM MEMBER and save $1500-$3000 on your own accommodations on select departures!
DINE EASY - food & beverage
Singles Travel International is committed to partnering with restaurants that provide comprehensive safety and sanitation training for their entire staff. Happy Hour meet-ups and sharing a group dinner together have always been a hallmark of traveling with STI since our beginning and are still some of our favorite moments. Now we’ll be able to offer the same fun experiences in a new way! We’ll have fewer members per table and space them apart, but we’ll rotate between courses, so you have a chance to socialize with more singles, safely!
