Safety & Peace of Mind

Industry Standards

We are actively engaged with global travel organizations, like USTOA, TourCare and WTTC, and follow the health and safety protocols set throughout the travel industry.

TourcareTour Care

TourCare are health and sanitation guidelines developed by the tour industry’s major global associations: the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA), The Canadian Association of Tour Operators (CATO) and the European Tourism Association (ETOA). YMT incorporates these guidelines that encourage their members to adhere to the highest standards in the industry.

World Travel & Tourism CouncilWTTC

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has produced new global Safe Travels protocols for use by the Travel & Tourism sector as best practice guidelines. The global protocols were developed in collaboration with WTTC Members, leading industry associations & international organizations. They take into account the current guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
