Desmond Tours Covid-19 Update

Desmond Tours Covid-19 Update:

So many businesses have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic and the tourism sector has been hit especially hard. However, we do understand that last year or so has been an extremely stressful time for our clients too – therefore, we at Desmond Tours have done our best to help out and reorganise tours.

Unfortunately, we cannot make this pandemic go away and we have to do the best we possibly can in these difficult circumstances. In light of the developments we have decided to implement our “Book with peace of mind” policy, so that our guests can benefit of added flexibility as we know plans may change. Travel to our beautiful island will resume once it is safe to do so and we look forward to working with our guests on their bespoke itineraries.

We sure do need something to look forward to after the difficult times we have had, so why not start planning your Ireland Vacation?!

Added flexibility for all of our guests:

We know it is hard to predict the future at the moment, so we would like to give you as much flexibility as possible.

We have amended our usual booking terms and have added extra flexibility. Anyone booking a tour for 2021 can cancel up to 21 days before their tour start date and choose one of the following options:

  • either have the full amount paid transferred to a future booking,
  • or to receive a gift voucher for the full value of their payment, which can then be transferred to another person.

We also offer that all participant names on bookings can be changed, so that there is full flexibility on who can join the tour (please note maximum numbers apply due to vehicle capacity).

To reiterate, all fees paid are treated as “deposits for life”. This means your tour fee, which covers the cost of us planning your Dream Ireland Vacation, has a lifetime guarantee.

Keeping you updated:

We will proactively communicate updates with all our guests, and we have been replying to your emails as quickly and thoroughly as we possibly can. Desmond and Luisa here at Desmond Tours would like to thank all our clients for their patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Caring about your safety and wellbeing:

We are proud to confirm everyone here at Desmond Tours has completed the Covid-19 Safety Charter.

The Covid-19 Safety Charter is a Government-endorsed initiative and once undertaken, it demonstrates to domestic and overseas visitors that a business can continue to operate safely. The aim of the initiative is to reinforce confidence in responsible tourism businesses.

In signing up to this charter, Desmond Tours is demonstrating a commitment to the health and safety of clients and staff alike and agree to the following:
