Travel Updates: A Message from our President
To our valued customers,
Travel is back and we couldn't be more excited!!

Travel resumed for us at the end of August, with many passengers enjoying independent vacations and small groups as well. We have our first group of Travel Advisors heading over in November to learn about Celtic Tours and Ireland and they will be ready to help you with your next vacation on their return.

Regarding vaccine mandates and testing; Celtic Tours follows the guidelines of the countries we service. Vaccines and/or negative testing is required by most if not all the countries we serve. Travel advisors, please check with our reservation agent at time of booking to know what guidelines are in place. Please note, that these can change at any time and it is wise to check the countries travel website before traveling to make sure you are up to date on the latest news. 

Masks in most cases are also still mandated. While on the coaches, masks will be required for the safety of all passengers and our driver/guides. This is a requirement beyond our control.

With travel is possible at this time, our normal terms and conditions are now reinstated. Should travel restrictions occur again in the future, we will adjust our terms and conditions accordingly.

Keep in mind, every country is requiring a Passenger Location Form to be completed on arrival. This will track where you are traveling at all times. Each country has a different form. These forms can be found on the internet with a quick search or give us a call and we will point you in the right direction.

All airlines presently are requiring a negative COVID test before boarding, which will require a negative RT-PCR test here in the US and abroad.

We welcome any feedback you have and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We welcome you to call our office at 800-833-4373 and we would be happy to relay the current status relating to the country you wish to travel too.

For 2022, we are continually developing new adventures and offerings for you to choose from, to bring you the best of Ireland and beyond. We have made some small itinerary changes to our signature Ireland escorted tours, but know for 2022, ALL tours have been designated “small group” to give you confidence and peace of mind!

We pride ourselves on our 
fair and just a flexible we maintained during the past 18-months. Know that if you book with Celtic Tours, you can always book with confidence.

Celtic Tours is proudly entering our 49th year! We will continue to offer fantastic service and products that bring your client's vacations of a lifetime. We would not be here without the dedicated travel advisors' support and can't thank them enough for their hard work. When traveling, don't go it out a professional travel advisor!
