Due to COVID-19 we have made the decision that we will only be running tours within NSW for the remainder of 2020. We will reassess the situation closer to next year about what we will be doing for 2021.
Please find below our amended holiday program for the duration of 2020. This program could change at any stage dependant of the spread of COVID-19, restrictions, and new hot spot areas. We understand that some people are not wanting to travel at the moment but have also found that some other people are still very keen and are finding it important to have something to look forward to, have a change in routine and support their mental state.
If it is necessary for us to cancel the tour because we feel it is not safe to travel to that area we will offer you a full refund, or the option of an alternative trip. If the participant becomes unwell and or has COVID-19 like symptoms before the tour departure date and therefore not able to travel, if they are able to get a doctor’s certificate we will also offer a full refund or change of tour once the participant is well enough to travel again. Otherwise the standard cancellations rules apply.
If you wish to book a tour we have a COVID-19 plan in place and can send you a copy. We also have a health screening form that participants need to complete before they travel.
CareAway offers 24 hour staff supervision on a 1:4-5 ratio on our "Category 1 " holidays. 1:3 ratio on our "Category 2" holidays and 1:2 ratio on our "Category 3" holidays. (Please note if a consumer requires, or it is necessary, to have a higher level of care, cost will need to be negotiated.)
