Alltours announced six months ago that from autumn onwards only those who had been vaccinated or recovered would be allowed in its hotels.

Now other tour operators are following suit.

Due to the corona pandemic, many countries only allow entry in accordance with the 3G rule.

That means travelers must either be vaccinated, recovered, or tested.

But in many places there is an increasing trend towards 2G.

For example, restaurant owners or party organizers in Hamburg are free to allow only those who have been vaccinated or recovered in their rooms.

The tour operator Alltours announced in February that from October 31st it would only accommodate people with proof of vaccination or health in its Allsun branded hotels.

Other companies are following this example.

Franconian tour operator introduces 2G rule

The

Leitner

travel company

from Allersberg in the Roth district will only be offering trips for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered from October 1st. "That was also a wish of many of our guests," quoted the online portal

the managing director Christoph Führer about this decision. The tour operator, which according to its own statements offers 98 percent group tours, wants to offer its customers the greatest possible protection. “This is not a political decision, we do not want to lecture anyone and we are free from any worldview. It's a business decision. ”It is difficult to coordinate a group trip with people who have not been vaccinated. “You have to remember that the test infrastructure is not like ours everywhere.

The tour operator

Studiosus

from Munich, which specializes in study trips, will also

adopt the 2G rule from October 1st

.

This regulation has been in effect for new bookings since September 1st.

The reason given by the company on its website is “significant tightening of the regulatory requirements for those who have been tested”.

Among other things, quarantine-free entry in many EU and Schengen countries is now only possible for vaccinated or convalescent people.

In addition, there is a very high vaccination rate among the guests.
