Coronavirus (COVID19) – Customer Information
Due to the ongoing global impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) Outback Tour Services will suspend all regular departing tours until at least 25th September 2020.
Given the unprecedented impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) we have updated our Booking Conditions and suspension policies to adapt to the constantly evolving nature of this pandemic. The most recent update took immediate effect on Wednesday 22 July 2020.
Private Groups and Outback Tour Services Premium Range
For selected groups of friends and family (where the dynamics of travel are different to independent travellers) we will be operating ‘COVID-safe’ Tailor-made / Private Group experiences prior to / and beyond 31 July 2020 in all regions of Australia. Providing the itineraries meet state and territory regulations, and all passengers agree to Outback Tour Services ‘COVID19 Safety Requirements’, we are now operating these ad-hoc departures, but we continue to monitor border and government restrictions and are only operating if it is considered safe to do so. Please forward all enquiries to: email@example.com
