Busabout Has Suspended All Trips Until 2022 Due To COVID-19

But they'll come back stronger than ever in '22 🙌

Today, Busabout has announced they are suspending operations (including Shamrocker Adventures) until 2022 due to COVID-19 and the associated travel restrictions.

COVID-19 has severely crippled the travel industry, and Busabout seems to be the first youth travel brand to take such drastic measures in reaction to the Coronavirus pandemic.

All Busabout trips have been suspended until 2022

Busabout, which is part of The Travel Corporation that owns other popular brands such as Contiki and Haggis Adventures has said suspending tours was “the most difficult decision we’ve ever had to make as a business.”

Busabout’s unique travel style requires friction-free travel between countries to operate safely, and with no idea what the future holds in the ever changing climate, Busabout has said “it would be too risky for us and for our guests to go ahead with our 2021 plans as usual.”

This news is going to be devastating for many young travellers, but we need to realise that it is also heartbreaking for Busabout and its employees.

COVID-19 has impacted businesses and industries in ways which on one could ever have imagined. And for a company like Busabout which offers such freedom of movement, to have that freedom disrupted, it is no surprise that such drastic action is required.

Busabout suspension FAQs

Busabout has announced a Future Travel Credit (FTC) scheme for affected passengers and those already booked onto a 2021 departure which will be made available to be used across multiple Travel Corporation brands.

If and when you want to use your travel credit, you will need to contact the brand you’re interested in travelling with, and they will be able to assist you with your booking.

Your Future Travel Credit will expire on the 31st of December 2022.

If you were considering to travel with Busabout in 2021, you could use your Future Travel Credit for a Contiki trip – which is also operated The Travel Corporation.

Other brands similar to Busabout include Topdeck, Travel Talk and Stoke Travel.

Please note that these brands are not associated with Busabout of The Travel Corporation, and your Future Travel Credit is not valid with these brands.

Busabout has stated that there are no fees for moving your booking to another trip operated by their sister companies or changing your departure date.

You will need to reschedule your trip at least 30 days before departure though to avoid cancellation penalties or fees.

If your new trip is more expensive, then you’ll need to pay the difference; however, if your new re-booked trip is cheaper than the trip fare you’ve already paid, then you’ll be refunded the difference.
