To our Friendly travellers –
Friendly Travel very much regret to announce that we will be suspending all tours departing up until the end of May 2020. For guests booked on our tours falling into these two months our staff would have already started reaching out to you by phone and email.
COVID-19 is causing an unforeseen impact across the globe with daily announcements of border closures and flight suspensions making it increasingly difficult for travellers. The safety and wellbeing of our clients is our first and highest priority and with the most recent announcements from our local governments as of last Friday (13 March 2020) the message has become clear. We have and will always follow the most up to date guidelines set out by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Smartraveller website.
In an unprecedented decision, we have no choice but to suspend our programs simultaneously for the first time in our company history.
Due to the large number of airline and land supplier components across our programs, it will take some time to finalise all details. As many of our tours include airfares and other transport provided by third parties we will be working with these third parties to minimise any unavoidable costs as a result of this unfortunate blackswan event.
We know these are stressful and uncertain times for everyone involved.
Once more, we thank you for your kindness and patience.
Friendly Travel Team
