Important Information

Customers will be required to wear face coverings whilst travelling on our coaches and at the interchanges, unless they are unable to do so due to breathing difficulties or a disability. Customers unable to wear a face covering are advised to complete a special requirement form before travelling so the driver is aware. Our drivers and interchange teams will wear face coverings until all customers have boarded the coach and whilst handling luggage. All feeder vehicles will be required to operate in accordance with our Alfa Coaches Covid-secure procedures. Customers will be required to adhere to safety measures at interchange, which are likely to include restrictions on the capacity numbers in the services at any one time and socially distanced queues both inside and outside the Services. We will be utilising employees at the interchange as marshals, to make sure passengers are following the correct social distancing measures whilst providing extra reassurance and support. Random customer temperature checks by members of the team wearing appropriate PPE will be undertaken at the interchange. All excursions and venues featured within our holiday programmes will be risk assessed to ensure that we are still able to still deliver a memorable holiday experience operating in accordance with our own Covid-secure procedures. The availability of any attraction mentioned in the resort or excursion descriptions cannot be guaranteed.
