To all our Operatunity Family,


Happy New Year! We hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive season and are entering 2022 refreshed and ready to live again! We are finally back in the office for the first time after 5 months working from home. How exciting to see our team back again all talking to our customers.


We have lots of plans but we are not quite ready to announce the start of our daytime concerts just yet. Never fear, we will be announcing some special one-off events soon to tide you over and give you that Operatunity ‘fix’! Watch this space!


In the meantime why not join us on a trip and make the most of our glorious Kiwi summer? Here’s a little teaser of what’s on offer!



The 35 lucky seniors on our recently returned ‘Christmas with Karl’ trip have already had a head start, dancing, laughing and living again! If you are ready to get out of lockdowns and restrictions, why not take a look at one of our trips departing in February?


Coromandel Country Music Extravaganza – 6-13 February 2022

Art Deco Napier – 18-22 February 2022

Celebration in the Waitomo Caves – 25 February-1 March 2022

We also have a few spaces on Carousel on the Harbour 14-17 February 2022

We’ve had three key words guide us during this pandemic – integrity, care and transparency. We understand the need for flexibility at present but there is also the need to have something to look forward to! Operatunity has put the following in place for our trips to protect your health and financial security.


Health & Safety

· We are one of the first companies to receive approval to use Rapid Antigen testing. We have purchased a number of tests and can administer these on tours if needed to check when someone is unwell. All escorts will be tested and be required to receive a negative rapid antigen test the day before travelling with you.

· All travellers and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated to enjoy Operatunity tours.

· All support staff including our coach drivers will be required to be fully vaccinated.

· All event venues and restaurants will be required to have mandated vaccine passports, where applicable, before we book and enjoy events at these venues. This is for travel within New Zealand. We will have the same objectives for international travel but this may be more difficult to police due to protocol in each specific country.

· All Operatunity travellers will be required to fill out a short questionnaire 72 hours before travelling with Operatunity. Questions will include any symptoms regarding COVID plus if you have visited any listed places of interest prior to travelling with Operatunity. If the answer is YES to any of the questions you may be required to have proof of a negative COVID test to travel with us.

· If you become sick on tour, you will be required to isolate and be asked to get a COVID test. Other Operatunity health and safety protocols are already in place including use of sanitiser, masks, hugging and enjoying our own group bubble while on tour. We will, of course, adhere to all government regulations and recommendations when travelling together.



· Generally as a policy if we are unable to proceed with a trip due to
COVID-19 restrictions, we would, if possible, transfer the trip to new dates.

· However we will refund you IN FULL if this trip is unable to be transferred due to Covid restrictions, even once you have paid finals for this trip.

· This does not mean we would refund you if you simply changed your mind and decided not to go at the last minute.

· It does mean, however, that if you had a medical certificate to say you were unwell to travel that we would work very hard to get as much of a refund back for you depending on hotels and other costs involved.

· If we have booked your flights and the trip was unable to proceed, we will work hard to get you a credit or refund, but if the flights have already been ticketed this would be a credit for you to use on another occasion. We would be unable to get you a full refund for your airline tickets.


Looking forward to seeing you soon!


With love and best wishes,

Sue and John and our great Operatunity Team


Happy New Year!
