Covid-related rules for participating in Boat Bike Tours trips in 2024

Health, safety, and wellbeing are paramount. We know that, for the time being, we all still need to be careful. That is why we continue to adhere to all the necessary hygiene and safety measures. Based on our recent experiences, the rules for participation in Boat Bike Tours trips in the 2024 season do not differ from the 2023 rules.

In 2024, you may participate in a Boat Bike Tours trip*:

  • If the official government regulations in force in the country of travel at the time of travel allow you to enter the country** (and in the case of a multi-country trip: meets the regulations of each country where the trip takes place).
  • If you have no symptoms suggestive of Covid:
    • if you have Covid-related symptoms at the start of the tour and test positive for Covid you may not board and therefore not participate in the trip;
    • if you develop Covid-related symptoms during the tour and test positive for Covid you must immediately enter your cabin in self-isolation and terminate the tour at the earliest possible moment by leaving the ship.

In addition (and because of this):

  • Boat Bike Tours urges all travelers – immediately when you book your trip – to purchase their own appropriate (travel and/or cancellation) insurance through the insurance company of your choice, preferably with extended Covid coverage.
  • Boat Bike Tours urges you to only travel fully vaccinated: protect yourself and others as good as you can!


*: For specific tours, for which not Boat Bike Tours but one our foreign partners is the organizing tour operator, slightly different rules and/or protocols may apply, depending on the policies and governmental rules in that country / on that ship. If different rules apply, you will find them in the description of the respective tour. At the moment (Dec. 2023) there are no government restrictions on travel to and within the EU in countries where Boat Bike Tours offers tours.
