Due to the public health emergency caused by COVID-19, and to avoid the risk of infection, the Portuguese Tourism Board – Turismo de Portugal – has created an internal protocol that ensures the necessary hygiene measures to avoid risks of contagion and guarantee safe procedures for the operation of touristic operators as well as their clients in accordance to the recommendations of the DGS – Directorate-General for Health.
Portugal Outside complies with the guidelines defined since they were first established and is therefore certified as a Clean and Safe company.
Although Portugal Outside has no physical facilities, all tourist activities provided by this company follow the recommendations from DGS and Turismo de Portugal.
All Portugal Outside employees and collaborators will receive specific training and information on:
- The internal protocol established due to Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak
- Basic rules and preventive measures to avoid infection and the spreading of the virus
- Hand hygiene and disinfection procedures
- Breathe etiquette
- Social behavior
All Portugal Outside partners – Accommodation, Tourism Operators, Car Rental operators – are also Clean and Safe companies and comply with the Turismo de Portugal and Directorate-General for Health protocol.
After receiving the reservation confirmation, our customers will receive an email with the internal protocol we are following and all the procedures implemented to ensure the confidence and safety of all that choose to travel with us.
Portugal Outside will provide an individual safety kit to every participant, which will make it easier for them to comply as well.
Portugal Outside is on top of all new recommendations from DGS and Turismo de Portugal for touristic activities and ready to adapt to new safety protocols – our number one priority is that our travelers enjoy the experience Portugal Outside provides with confidence and safety.
All our tours – be it walking, cycling, or a road trip – are designed to avoid crowds, as they always have and will be in the future. Likewise, our accommodation partners are deliberately small and located away from the mainstream touristic routes.
Portugal Outside only operates with small private groups.
