In light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 worldwide, Margate Mini Coach / Margate Coach would like to assure our passengers that we take our passengers health and safety very seriously.
As COVID-19 passes 100 cases in South Africa we would like to advise our passengers should you not need to travel to rather postpone travel arrangements until further notice. Should you feel the need to postpone your travel and put your tickets on credit, you may contact us via our social media pages, email, live chat and +27 39 312 1406.
Should you need to book and travel we ask passengers to use our online booking facility here.
Please be aware passengers not making contact with us and coming up as a no show will not be eligible for postponement, credit or refund.
We urge all passengers with bookings travelling from Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Germany, the United States of America, the United Kingdom and China to make contact with us to postpone their travel until further notice.
We have increased our fleet cleaning efforts which includes a strict disinfection before the vehicle departs from the depot and the airport. During this time, we urge our passengers to take necessary precautions to aid in preventative measures of contracting COVID-19 whilst travelling.
In the meantime, stay alert, wash your hands thoroughly, know the health status of those around you, and most importantly, if you are feeling ill, please seek medical treatment and avoid travelling until a doctor clears you to do so.
