At Cosmos, we’re not just hooked on travel as a destination, but on the way travel makes you feel. Our promise is to make holidays you’ll never forget, and success is all about delivering a hassle-free holiday for you. 

Our story began in Switzerland 90 years ago, where local legend Antonio Mantegazza bought a row boat to transport tourists over Lake Lugano. Sharing with them the stories and secrets of the locals, Antonio’s passion for travel gave birth to the Globus Travel Group, from which Cosmos was born. 

Now, with over 50 years of experience and ‘wow’ under our belts, Cosmos have world value travel figured out and there is no sign of us slowing down. 

Our passion is to take you to the must-see places that set your imagination on fire. With the help of our knowledgeable friends, your Local Guides and Tour Directors, we constantly unearth new local secrets to make your adventure as awe-stonishing as possible. 

Connect with a new world of people, places and experiences; ignite your travel imagination and feel alive. It’s simple, made special. 

Cosmos travellers enjoy a savings of up to 40 percent compared to booking a vacation on their own. With the unparalleled value we offer – including our “Tours Under $1,000” series – Cosmos travelers can indulge in their wanderlust more often.

from Scott Nisbet, President & CEO of GFOB USA

GFOB has an unwavering commitment to the safety of our guests. The COVID crisis has heightened the importance of this for travelers. While travelers clearly want to start exploring again, they also need to feel safe. Over the last few weeks much has been done to develop and communicate our new COVID health and safety protocols.

There is more in the works, but the following highlights our current plans.

Health screening for guests and our team pre-travel and throughout the trip, including touch-free temperature checks.

Ensuring hotel, restaurant, coach and attraction partners meet government guidelines.

Avalon ships circulate air from the outside into staterooms and do not circulate air between staterooms.

A commitment to clean beyond government guidelines.

Social distancing throughout the journey.
– Fewer guests on coaches and ships (details to come)
– Wireless listening technology to avoid crowding around guides
– Masks available for guests and required for our team when social distancing is not possible
– Additional dining venues on ships

Daily deep cleaning of coaches and staterooms
– Hand sanitation stations on coaches and ships
– Hotel and ship buffets replaced with served meals
– Electrostatic spraying systems on ships
– UV disinfection systems on ships
– Hourly cleaning of public areas on ships
– Disinfecting luggage and all goods brought on board ships
– Complete disinfection of staterooms and public area between cruises 

 

We have recently been asked about the future of group touring in a COVID world. I believe we should be more confident than ever. Travel will be more difficult during this time, but we can make it easier. This is the #1 reason people take a tour…”it’s easy.” For 92 years, GFOB has been maneuvering around the hassles and providing benefits like skipping the lines at popular attractions to make travel easy (and now safe). We also know the hotels and venues with the right safety protocols. Plus with GFOB, travelers are not left to figure out all the local COVID guidelines and laws. There is also safety and peace of mind being with the same group of health screened, people. Compared that to a “hop on, hop off” tour for example. And, of course, all our brands and trips have a GFOB person there ready to help.  I believe touring and river cruising with GFOB makes more sense than ever.
