As border restrictions and state lockdowns rapidly evolve, we continue to assess the impact of these changes on our operations at Inspiring Journeys tours.

We are prioritising contacting all our affected guests and will continue to do so as the situation develops.

Thank you for your patience as we work through these operational challenges.

If you are scheduled to travel from an area recently declared a COVID hotspot, please contact our Reservations team on 1300 669 175 (Agents: 1300 556 100) to make alternative arrangements.

Your Wellbeing

At Inspiring Journeys protecting our guests, our team and our communities is our highest priority. As we navigate our way through these unpredictable times, our focus has never strayed from our guests and our extended Inspiring Journeys family. We are committed to your wellbeing and ensuring we provide you with the best possible experience when you travel with us.

Additional pre-journey protocols are currently in place to ensure your wellbeing:

· All Guided Holiday guests are required to complete a mandatory Travel Declaration before departing on one of our journeys

Those entering New Zealand (including from Australia) may need to obtain a negative PCR or RT-PCR pre-departure COVID test, it is the traveller’s responsibility to ensure compliance with advised government requirements when travelling internationally.

While International travel between New Zealand and Australia is now possible, both governments advise you to exercise increased caution when travelling to and around New Zealand or Australia. While the COVID-19 risk to you may be considered low, outbreaks can occur and authorities could implement measures at short notice, which may impact your ability to move freely. It is possible that either government could close borders with limited notice, which may cause disruption to your travel. This is at your own risk, and cannot be the responsibility of AAT Kings Tours Pty Ltd.


Our Reservations Team is on hand to answer any questions you may have, with the most up to date information available from both the Australian Government and World Health Organisation.

If you have an upcoming booking with us departing during the suspended date period, please contact your travel agent and if you have any further queries, please contact us directly via email info@aatkings.com or call 1-866-240-1659.
