We are all acutely concerned about the spread of the coronavirus. Its impact on tourism, particularly in terms of the prevailing climate of anxiety and uncertainty, is very worrying. In this article, we would like to inform our clients about the known coronavirus risks and the measures that BARCANDO CHARTER has taken to ensure you set sail in the safest of conditions.
Even in countries or regions where the virus is actively spreading, the risk of contagion remains statistically low. Even lower in the case of holidays at sea, which are naturally far away from major cities and potential sources of contamination.
This coronavirus, or COVID-19, is known to cause influenza, which is no less severe than seasonal influenza. Just like the common flu, it is mild in the vast majority of cases, but this may not apply to elderly persons and to those with pre-existing pulmonary or cardiac illnesses or suppressed immune systems. Nevertheless, during transit and your sailing holiday itself, we advise that you limit close contact with people who cough or have a fever and to respect good hygiene practices. Fortunately, the air is not contaminated on board a boat, and contact is limited!
For all bookings confirmed after March 1st, 2020 in a destination where coronavirus cases have been detected, here are the possibilities for modifying your reservation, to be approved on a case-by-case basis by your advisor and in accordance with our rental partners:
