Health & Safety

Committed to delivering a clean and safe environment through health and safety protocols

As COVID-19 continues and the world evolves to the new normal, Radisson Hotels continue their proactive efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests. 

RHG Safety Protocols

As part of the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol, our top priority is maintaining the highest levels of safety in accordance with each country’s local regulations. Prevention steps include disinfecting all key entry points, including buffet areas and high touch points in public areas. A personalized contactless service is being offered throughout our properties wherever possible. Our team members’ health is monitored, and they receive regular Covid prevention training. In addition, we continuously monitor indoor air quality, and select hotels are adding CO2 meters in areas such as meeting rooms and fitness centers.

Rapid onsite COVID-19 testing for event attendees

To provide ease and confidence to return to face-to-face meetings and events, we have launched onsite, rapid COVID-19 antigen testing for attendees. To provide this service, we partner with leading healthcare providers to make the option available in 23 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. For more details, please check the ‘Rapid COVID-19 testing’ tab below.

PCR testing

To facilitate the return of travel, Radisson Hotels are able to direct guests to an easily accessible and affordable PCR testing location. In addition, selected hotels will offer PCR testing on location for groups or individuals, or self-sampling PCR tests via the Group’s specialized partners.

Access to medical assistance for your peace of mind

Our hotel teams are ready to assist to help ensure the safety and well-being of everyone. As part of our continued efforts to help our guests enjoy a relaxed stay with us, our hotels can provide information on locally available medical assistance and support. If you or someone in your traveling party are feeling ill, our team members will do all they can to connect guests with the best locally available resources and local medical advisors. Our team can advise you on the nearest pharmacies and stores to purchase personal protective equipment kits, masks, and other medical necessities.

Flexibility in cancellation

We are constantly updating our global cancellation policy with the aim to offer you as much flexibility and planning comfort as possible. Our policy is subject to local regulations and variations applicable to the hotel legal entity. Please see more on this page.
