Welcome to Breakaway Tours
Well, it certainly has been an eventful year to date. We've updated the brochure to update you on the upcoming tours and the tours that are canceled. We studied the data long and hard before we decided to begin to travel again, and, of course, this schedule is subject to change should the world change again. The festivals listed are not canceled, but still could be. Some itineraries may change a bit to adjust for Covid 19 restrictions.
You will notice a few differences we have made to protect you. First of all, our carriers, McCarter and Zona are implementing disinfecting techniques that meet and exceed the CDC standards. They will be using an electrostatic sprayer nightly to clean the coaches, and the driver’s will be disinfecting high touch areas throughout the bus. The air in the coach will be exchanged every 10 minutes. While the driver will load your luggage under the bus and pull it from the bus at your destination, there will be no baggage handling, to avoid cross contamination at your destination.
The driver and escort will be wearing masks to check you in and we ask that you wear your own mask for boarding and when you are not in your motor coach seat. This will include boarding and disembarking as well as rest room use. No need to wear the mask in the seat unless it makes you more comfortable. We will not be serving snacks on board in order to limit face to face time, so be sure to bring something if you need it. The door side front seat will remain empty to protect the driver. We will be asking you to sign a waiver before boarding certifying that you are symptom free and that you do not hold us responsible if you contract Covid 19 on the bus or at the destination. We will also ask you to notify us for contact tracing if you become ill up to two weeks after a tour. If you develop symptoms on tour, we will ask you to get tested at urgent care or a drug store while at the destination, and if you are positive, we will help you to make arrangements to quarantine, at your expense.
We strongly suggest that you purchase cancellation insurance to cover you up until departure day, as you will be asked to sign a waiver to certify that you are symptom free, and boarding will be refused if you have symptoms.
We trust that everyone will remain safe and we are so excited to finally be able to offer tours again and see our beloved riders!!!
