B. Our COVID-Safe Plan is Extensive.
- Our COVID-Safe Plan has been approved by the Australia Tourism Industry Council (ATIC). Businesses that display COVID Clean Practising Business logo provide a reassurance to customers that they have developed and initiated business practices which are specifically aimed to maintain high hygiene standards within their business aimed to stop the spread of COVID-19. New practices include pre-screening customers both on their booking form and when they arrive at the Cairns airport; surface sanitising our buses (which carry only your group at one time – no outsiders); providing masks for everyone if they want to wear them; enabling customer and staff contact tracing; and a safety talk at the beginning of the trip that specifically addresses practices that can help the spread of COVID-19 (and other diseases).
C. We Check Our Suppliers’ Compliance
- In addition to our usual quality control checks, we have personally inspected our suppliers (accommodation, restaurants, and activities) to ensure that their actions are in line with their COVID plan. If we feel that a supplier is not compliant with their own COVID-19 safety plan, then we will not use their services.
