Road transport, Rail & Cruise


This section includes samples of road, rail and cruise transport companies COVID-19 operating guidelinesNote that some river cruise guidelines may be found under the Tour Operators/OTAs section in case they operate river cruises. 

The aim of this page is to give our members an overview of which operating guidelines are being implemented by the companies themselves as well as more generic guidelines developed by associations. Collectively, these can also give operators an idea of what to plan for or require.  

If you would like us to add materials to this page, please contact us.
