Our Commitment to a Safe Journey

Your Journey Begins Again...

We’re taking careful measures so you can travel with peace of mind. We understand the uncertainty that the current environment has created for travelers. You can rest assured that when Your Journey Begins Again with Friendship Tours the following safety and wellness protocols will be followed on all of our departures.

Know Before You Go:

  • Use of Face Masks: Face masks are required to be worn when on the coach, in accordance with public transportation protocols. Additionally, we will abide by the safety protocols of the local areas we are visiting during your trip. Some destinations will require proof of vaccination.
  • One (1) signed form will be required to travel: a Wellness Declaration & Travel Liability Waiver. The form will be provided prior to your departure and must be submitted as you board the bus for departure.
  • If you are not feeling well, have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you NOT travel. Your wellness and the health of everyone on board is dependent on this commitment we make to each other.
  • For overnight tours, we strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance protection. Travel insurance protection will reimburse penalties if a cancellation is due to illness or accident. For further peace of mind, we are excited to offer Cancel For Any Reason trip protection at time of deposit.

On Your Tour:

Motorcoach Trips:

Friendship Tours and Peter Pan Bus Lines have been partners in travel for many years. We are both multi-generational family run businesses with the same goal: to let you sit back and relax and enjoy the ride!

Please listen to this important message from the CEO of Peter Pan Bus Lines, Peter Picknelly:

Peter Pan Bus Lines has announced their Safety Is Our #1 Priority policies as well. Click here to learn more about Peter Pan's new sanitizing & disinfecting protocols for their buses.


  • All motorcoaches will be disinfected prior to every trip. Peter Pan Bus Lines is the first coach company in the US to utilize CDC-approved PermaSafe, a protective coating, to continuously kill viruses, including COVID- 19, bacteria, germs, and mold on contact.
  • A hand sanitizer station will be available as you board the coach. Tour Directors will have an additional supply of sanitary wipes and hand sanitizer.

Accommodations, Meals, Sightseeing:

  • We are committed to delivering a memorable and fulfilling travel experience. We will also partner with accommodations, restaurants, and sightseeing venues that adhere to the highest standards of safety & cleanliness protocols.
  • Some attractions will require us to submit a confidential list of passenger names/phone numbers/ emails solely for the purpose of contact tracing and passenger protection.
  • Keep an eye on your health throughout your trip. If you do not feel well, your Tour Director is available and trained on how to support you. Please speak up.

Our guidelines may evolve based on local government restrictions, the CDC, and overall travel industry best practice recommendations. We are excited about our commitment to you and appreciate your understanding as we move forward to navigate this Safe Journey together.
