COVID-19 UPDATE MAY 2020
PLEASE NOTE ANY BOOKINGS CANCELLED WITHIN A WEEK OF YOUR JOURNEY IN COUNTRY WHERE GOVT RESTRICTIONS NO LONGER APPLY MAY NOT BE AUTOMATICALLY REFUNDED. WE MAY ISSUE CREDIT TOWARDS YOUR TRAVEL IN THE FUTURE. OUR POLICY HAS CHANGED TO PROTECT LDN WORLDWIDE BUSINESS DURING THE CRISIS.
The health and safety of our passengers, partners and employees is of highest importance.
As questions and concerns arise as a result of COVID-19 (commonly referred to as Coronavirus)
Our company has taken a number of precautionary measures to provide the highest level of protection for our customers and staff.
We believe that Isopropyl alcohol based products are the most effective in this case, as majority of medical officials use it to ensure maximum effectiveness.
A thorough cleaning of vehicle interior surfaces with Isopropyl alcohol spray and anti-bacterial disinfectant wipes is conducted following each ride, and all company working areas are cleaned and disinfected daily.
Furthermore, we have instructed all employees to seek medical attention immediately if they feel unwell, and we do not allow sick employees to report for work under any circumstances.
Most of our staff works from home in their respective locations meaning we can serve you efficiently and without delay 24/7.
Chauffeurs are made aware of the risks of Coronavirus and how it is transmitted.
Chauffeurs are reporting if they travelled to any risk areas and if they are experiencing any relevant symptoms.
All our worldwide partners/chauffeurs/cars/office staff are taking every precaution thus ensuring our service is made as safe as it can be.
We are in a position to take every client across Europe/North America/Africa/Asia in a comfort of a chauffeur-driven car.
Please speak to us should you require our help cross-country/cross-continent or any help with private aviation.
Without our people all of us have no business and that is why we take such care of everyone associated with LDN.
Our vehicles will be equipped with hand sanitisers and isopropyl alcohol based products
Interior surfaces in vehicles, as well as door handles (inside and outside) are disinfected after every journey
Chauffeurs are avoiding physical contact (e.g. handshakes) and will be greeted with a cheerful smile and a respectful bow.
All luggage & bags will be wiped down and disinfected.
The situation now is very fluid and we will need to continue monitoring events as they unfold.
We will work with you through this and take the necessary actions.
LDN worked with you for many years and during this time we have jointly weathered many storms e.g. recession, Swine flu, Ebola, terrorist attacks, changing competitive landscape and now Coronavirus.
We appreciate your understanding and are dedicated to continuing to provide you with the highest level of service that you have come to expect. We wish you the best of health and look forward to serving you again soon!
