COVID-19 Travel FAQ

Health (Covid) Policies for Tours

Will I need a Covid vaccination to join a tour? And what about boosters?
Covid vaccines are NOT required for our tours.

Do I need to bring my original vaccination card with me on tour?

You are NOT required to show a vaccination card to join our tours.

Am I required to wear a face mask during my tour?

Wearing a face mask while on tour is optional unless you're exhibiting symptoms commonly associated with a contagious illness (such as a cold, flu, Covid, etc.) while on tour, you will be required to wear a N95/KN95 mask on the bus and in other settings when with your group.

Will I need a negative Covid test prior to joining a tour?

No, we do not require pre-tour testing.

What happens if I test positive for Covid during my tour?

While we will not ask anyone on tour showing symptoms to test for Covid, if you're sick and decide to leave your tour, you may be entitled to a refund or credit for missed tour days, but you cannot rejoin the tour. RSE may provide a $200 per day refund for you (and your travel partner) if you provide a positive Covid test or obtain a doctor's note.

What's the best way to stay healthy while traveling?

For advice on staying healthy while on tour, see Rick's article, Tips for Healthy, Happy Travels.
