Expectations for travel – 2021 and Beyond
At Mile Zero Tours we are excited to offer life enriching travel opportunities once again. Of course, the safety of our guests, staff, travel partners and local residents remains of the utmost importance and we will not hesitate to cancel further tours if it is deemed unsafe or unfeasible to travel.
As operations restart Mile Zero Tours will continue to adhere to the latest guidance of public health authorities in all tour operations. As we have seen throughout the pandemic directives and expectations change very quickly and as they do these policies will updated.
The following outlines some of the measures and expectations that maybe in place at the time of travel over the coming months.
All tour participants are now required to be fully vaccinated prior to the departure of their tour. Guests will need to carry proof of vaccination while travelling and be willing to show such when requested. Vaccination requirements will be in effect for all tours departing through January 31, 2022. Requirements will be reevaluated at that time but anyone contemplating travel for 2022 should presume similar policies will be in effect.

At Mile Zero Tours our top priority remains the health and wellbeing of our guests, employees, suppliers and the community at large. Earlier this year we suspended all travels. This suspension lasted from mid-March until September. In the fall we were able to operate several tours safely and successfully to destinations within BC. However, by late October it was decided to reinstate the suspension. All tours have now been suspended until March 2021, with all tours outside of BC held until May 2021 and all international travel until at least July.
We have now updated our website with all planned travel opportunities through August 2021 and we will continue to add trips for next fall over the coming months. While we are optimistic for the future, we will not hesitate to cancel further trips if it is deemed unsafe or unfeasible to travel.
All guests considering future travel can be assured that in the event it becomes prudent for Mile Zero Tours to cancel a trip, all deposits received for active bookings will be fully and promptly refunded to the original form of payment.
Based on the guidance of public health authorities we have instituted new on tour safety procedures. Please be aware these policies are current as of fall 2020 and will be updated and amended as guidance changes. Furthermore, we will now be limiting all group sizes to between 18-25 guests (depending on the tour). Limited small group sizes will remain in affect for all future tours.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to travelling with you again in the future.

In response to Covid-19 Mile Zero Tours suspended travel in mid-March and we have subsequently cancelled all tours scheduled through August and all travels outside of BC until at least December.
As the crisis appears to be easing in BC we are very much looking forward to getting back on the road this fall with a number of BC based Short Escapes. In preparation for a return to travel we will continue to ensure the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority and we will be enacting various policies to ensure this going forward.
While we are very excited and optimistic about these upcoming tours we do want everyone to be aware that we will not hesitate to cancel any tours if it is deemed unsafe to continue. In such cases all deposit will be fully and promptly refunded.
