Intrepid Group is suspending Intrepid Travel and Peregrine Adventures tours globally from Monday, March 16 until Thursday, April 30, 2020.
Customers booked to travel on an Intrepid Travel or Peregrine Adventures tour during this time will receive a credit valued at 110 percent, which will be valid for two years.
Intrepid Travel and Peregrine Adventure tours that are currently operating will continue until April 3, 2020. Any customers that opt to leave their tour early will receive a credit for the remainder of their itinerary.
The only exception is to Intrepid’s Australia tours, which at this stage, will go ahead as planned.
CEO James Thornton says that the decision to suspend Intrepid Group’s global operations comes as a result of the increasing number of national and international travel restrictions that have been announced by governments in the past 48 hours.
“The rapid spread of Coronavirus and subsequent travel shutdowns has created a situation which is unlike anything that Intrepid has seen in our 31 years in business. We have now made the difficult decision to pause our global operations until the end of April,” says Thornton in press materials.
“The health and wellbeing of our customers, our people, and the local communities that we visit is our priority. As a responsible travel company, we look forward to resuming trips when we can once again operate trips that benefit both our travelers and the people they visit along the way.”
