Depending on the available free time, it may or may not be possible to pursue all the optional activities listed in the trip itinerary.

Covid-19 Entry and Exit Requirements

Due to the constantly evolving health and safety advisory on Covid-19, it is imperative that you monitor your government’s travel advice for the most up to date border-measures and travel requirements as they may change without notice.

Your group leader will accompany you on all the included activities on this trip. They will deliver daily safety briefings on activities and sightseeing, travel and transport, food and drinks, etc., for you to have the safest possible experience.

 

We recommend you use a neck wallet or a money belt to carry your valuables such as passports, bank cards, flight tickets, cash, etc. You may also use an electronic safe (available at some hotel rooms) to store your valuables. However, please do not forget to retrieve your belongings before checking out. Do not bring expensive jewellery on the trip.

Any optional activities are not a part of the trip itinerary, and ‘Tourrnival Jourrneys’ cannot be held responsible for the associated safety concerns or the standard of the operators running them. We recommend you make your judgment before you choose to pursue any optional activity during your free time.

 

WOMEN’S SAFETY: Of late, there have been reported cases of sexual assault against women in India. While the risk of a safety incident on your trip is meagre, we suggest you take the below-mentioned precautions to have a safe travelling experience:

 

  • Respect local dress codes and customs. Dress up more conservatively (minimum half sleeves and three-quarter trousers) than what you do back home. The best is to observe the way local ladies or girls dress up.

 

  • Avoid isolated areas, unlit streets, or lanes, and do not travel alone on local transport, especially at night.

 

  • Do not accept any unsolicited offers from unknown people (particularly at tourist spots) to go out for drinks, motorbike rides, etc.

 

  • Lock your hotel room as soon as you enter it. The concept of privacy is understood differently in some regions.

 

  • Do not worry! Be confident, stay alert and enjoy your trip.

Phone and Internet Access

Some hotels offer free WiFi connectivity while some charge for this service. A mobile prepaid SIM (we recommend Airtel or Jio) that usually costs 200-300 INR is easy to buy. You would be required to produce a photocopy of your passport and visa and a passport size photograph. We suggest you buy it from a store close to your hotel so that you can follow up if required.

Travel Insurance

You must have a valid travel insurance policy while travelling on a ‘Tourrnival Jourrneys’ trip. Your travel insurance policy must cover you for medical expenses, including related covid-19 expenditures and emergency repatriation. We highly recommend that your policy covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment or loss of luggage or personal belongings.
