- Fun Over Fifty


FUN OVER FIFTY has taken social distancing very seriously and have designed a plan so our guests travelling on our bespoke coaches will be based on Government distancing guidelines and requirements (SEE COACH PLANS BELOW). We are very proud of our custom built coaches that offer very generous leg room, meaning better spacing for our guests compared to many other touring coaches. Although our coaches range from 26 maximum guests on ‘Diamond Class’ to 48 maximum guests on our ‘Gold Class’, we are only taking 22 guests on our ‘Gold Class’ and 13 guests on our ‘Diamond Class’, with a map of a coach seating plan to comply with our Health Risk Management plan and Government social distancing requirements. Having high backs on our luxurious leather seats actually act as a physical barrier.

COVID-19 has forced us to evaluate how we operate and how we can best look after our guests and crew, both now and into the future. We’ve always prided ourselves on our fastidious cleanliness practices, but these have now been taken to the next level with all coaches being hygienically misted (think CSI style here) after each and every tour. The misting treatment is non-toxic and is used in hospitals, restaurants and doctors’ surgerys. Our coaches are then closed for 48 hours for treatment to finalise. This treatment will now stay as common practice moving forward.

Our coaches during a tour program will have increased disinfection and will be thoroughly wiped down daily on all surfaces including but not limited to handrails, seats and seat belts, toilets and overhead lockers. Our coaches will be stocked with masks if any guest would like to be provided one. Upon entry and disembarkation, a touchless sensor sanitising station will be present on all Fun Over Fifty coaches.

Staff Training: Fun Over Fifty has engaged an accredited training facilitator to conduct a workshop for all staff (office and on-road crew) to attend, so we can be at the forefront of best practice and create a consistent framework for all staff to follow. Key elements we are focusing on are:
Understanding COVID-19 supplier restrictions and protocol
Maintaining personal and work hygiene practices specific to reducing cross-contamination of COVOD-19 with correct cleaning & sanitising methods
We are also undertaking the COVID-19 CLEAN Practicing Business module as outlined by Mater Health and Queensland’s Chief Health Officer

Our Suppliers: Fun Over Fifty has spent the last 6 weeks re-arranging tour programs with all 3rd party suppliers including but not limited to attractions; hotels and restaurants. We will endeavor to have in writing a confirmation from them that they are compliant with Government distancing requirements re hygiene practices and social distancing before our tours visit these suppliers.

We’re going the extra mile to ensure your health and wellbeing going forward. All guests will have to fill out our newly developed Guest Health Declaration Form which will be posted out to all guests in tour documents prior to travel. All guests will also be tested prior to boarding each and every day with infrared non-contact forehead thermometers. We’re proud that these practices have been added to our Health & Well-being, and Illness & Injuries Policies so that our future travellers can rest assured that their safety is at the forefront of our minds.

Summary: In regard to the reduced numbers of guests travelling, we will continue to monitor and comply with the recommendations of the Government and Chief Health Officer regulations, and may increase guest numbers or make changes to this policy without notice when we are advised that we are able to resume our normal touring procedures with increased guest numbers.
