With the United States lifting its requirement that all travelers test negative for COVID-19 before flying to the U.S., travel just got easier. Our team couldn’t be more thrilled about riding in France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, and more. With guests already booked on many of our European trips, they are sure to sell-out quickly. Learn more about traveling to Europe with us below and see all our European trips.*
*Please note: As of June 12, 2022, the United States is no longer requiring a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the country. Please review the table below to understand the requirements for travel outside of the U.S. The CDC still recommends COVID-19 testing before any kind of air travel. Trek Travel does not require a negative COVID-19 test to join a trip.
To continue to provide the experience that Trek Travel is known for, we are no longer able to accommodate unvaccinated guests on our trips. Please note that Trek Travel will require all guests to be fully vaccinated prior to trip start and it will be necessary to carry proof of vaccination for all 2022 departures. See more information about our On-Trip Safety Measures including vaccination requirements here.

We know you’re excited about heading to Europe (we are too!). We’ve received glowing feedback from our guests and learned a lot about traveling during COVID-19. Let us answer some of your questions to make it easy to plan for your European dream trip.
We will send guests country-specific COVID-19 information 30 days before departure, outlining all policies and travel details. This includes information on testing, entry and exit requirements, itinerary updates, additional paperwork or documentation required, etc.
The safety of our guests and staff is our highest priority, and we will work with you on alternate travel plans if we are unable to run a scheduled trip in Europe. Rest assured, if we need to cancel one of our trips, 100% of your payment can be transferred to another trip.
We are only going to run trips in regions where we can provide the experience of a lifetime, complete with the delectable meals, premier accommodations, and unforgettable experiences our trips are known for. We are consistently in contact with guides and partners in Europe to ensure that stores, restaurants, and other cultural centers are open in the regions we run trips.
Trek Travel will require all guests to be fully vaccinated before the start of the trip. It will be necessary to carry proof of vaccination for all 2022 departures*. (*Some exceptions apply. Please contact our team to learn more.) We encourage those who are eligible to get a booster dose. At this time we are not requiring it for travel with us but are closely monitoring what the CDC considers “fully vaccinated.” 100% of our guides are vaccinated.
Although you are no longer required to have a negative COVID-19 test to enter the United States, the CDC is still recommending that you do. You may wish to travel with a home testing kit or your guides can help arrange a time and place to get a test (if required) during the final days of your trip. Please note the associated cost of the test is not included in your trip price. If you are continuing your travels in Europe after your Trek Travel trip, you will be responsible for finding your own testing location, should you wish to do so.
