COVID-19 information

Important Travel News from Bunnik Tours.

These are difficult times yet all around us we have seen the very best of human nature shine through.

Updated 3 February 2021

To our loyal travellers,

Our international tours for 2020 were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing global border closures and government travel restrictions.

We are saddened to have cancelled almost a full year's worth of what, in a pre-COVID world, would have been amazing and special experiences for our guests. What a year 2020 was and who can predict what 2021 holds.

Thanks to each of you for your patience and support as our consultants worked their way through contacting impacted passengers, either directly or via their travel agent, before we made further public announcements. Your kind words and empathy have meant so much.

Due to the uncertainty we will not be seeking any progress payments on international tours and we are delaying the due date for final balances until 30 days prior to departure.

As a family company with 25 years of history we have seen our fair share of upheaval in the travel industry. Whilst this current crisis is on an unprecedented scale, we know that this too shall pass and we will once more be exploring the world.

We are ATAS and IATA accredited, a member of the Council of Australian Tour Operators, and the reigning International Tour Operator of the Year awarded at the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards.

We still are, and will always be, Bunnik Tours.

Best regards,
Dennis, Marion & Sacha
