Keeping each other safe

Keeping each other safe

To ensure the safety of you and your fellow Topdeckers, it’s essential you take responsibility for your own wellbeing by familiarising yourself with hygiene and safety measures recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). These include washing your hands regularly (but you were already doing that, right?), complying with local social distancing guidelines and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) where applicable. All Topdeckers will be required to complete a pre-boarding declaration confirming you understand your personal responsibilities throughout your trip.

On-road partners
