Covid-19 Update - Tuesday 15th June 2021
We are sure that many of you will have watched last nights briefing with trepidation, knowing even before tuning in that we were set for a further 4 weeks of certain restrictions. Throughout the pandemic we have remained transparent with our decisions and have adhered to Government Guidance at every stage, we opted not to take advantage of the loophole of running our excursions as a service to allow us to run several weeks prior to the actual un-lock date.
There have been a number of interpretations of the rules since the 17th May with some operators choosing to restrict the numbers of passengers, whilst others opted to run at full capacity from the 29th of May; those of you whom have travelled since we re-commenced our programme on the 17th May will have seen the measures have put in place to keep you all safe and we have to say from a company perspective we are delighted with the feedback received as well and the many messages of thanks and praise for getting back up and running again.
As those of you who have booked a trip from the 21st June onwards will have seen we have taken the decision, following comprehensive discussions with the Confederation of Passenger Transport and our own Risk Assessment to increase capacity on all of our trips; the guidance is clear, so long as we continue to maintain significant Covid-secure measures to follow current government guidance to help prevent the spread of the virus we can operate with every forward facing seat populated; continue to ensure that the following is in operation:
Enhanced cleaning regimes, including anti-viral fogging of all vehicles
The requirement for customers to wear face coverings throughout the journey
Hand sanitiser provided on all vehicles
On day excursions departures from one area only
Increased local pick up points to prevent crowding in the interchanges
Naturally, we appreciate that some of you will prefer to wait but equally we understand that many of you simply want a day out. Our prices from June 21st onward reflect the decision to increase capacity, we are now giving you the choice of how you wish to travel, whilst we continue to follow the guidance. For those of you who travel individually and wish to ensure the seat next to you is not occupied you now have the option of purchasing the seat adjacent to you for a charge of £5.00
With all of the above in mind we accept that there may also be some of you that wish to delay planned trips, so, if anyone is booked on a day excursion from the 21st June to the 19th July and you feel that you would prefer to wait to travel please email firstname.lastname@example.org or private message on Facebook, we will happily change the date of your booking to a future date with no charge or loss of monies.
We look forward to many more memorable trips, on behalf of all here at Globe thank you for the understanding and thank you for to the many new customers too who have joined the Globe family recently, see you soon.
