100rumos, la meilleure façon de voyager au Portugal

One year later

Monday, March 29, 2021
A year without tourism was our perspective in March 2020. At the end of March 2021, the scenario is not very promising and there is still a long way to go before the resumption of tourism. Although we are overcoming the pandemic in Portugal very well (today we have about 300 new cases, 8 deaths and a significant drop in intensive care patients), the markets on which we depend still face many uncertainties about how to get here . However, Portugal as a destination has not changed! I would even say it has improved. I am of the opinion that this year was necessary to reflect on what is the provision of some services in the area of ​​Tourism. Both in terms of the quality of care, but also in terms of hygiene, safety and hospitality.
This season is about to start and WE have an enormous desire to Welcome you to Portugal. Not only because of the financial need, but above all because welcoming, programming, organizing and operating are part of the DNA of our structure.
We did what we set out to do throughout this year: we kept up our activity, made our reflection and projection for the times that follow. We have created more digital communication channels and we are about to put Oh My Guide live. We reevaluated our real needs and restructured our offer.

We spent a year healthy, smoothly, more mature and above all we managed to keep our pillars and foundations safe!

With a lot of enthusiasm, wishing to have you back visiting this fascinating country with us.

See you soon,
Joao Moura

2021: work in progress

Mercredi, septembre 30, 2020

Throughout the past seven months we have had the added commitment of being in permanent contact with our partners, clients and suppliers. Our worries and concerns are common to all. But I recognize myself in the resilience, the ability of reinvention, improvisation and adjustment that we Portuguese - and the tourism sector in particular - have.

Allow me to share this reflection: along these past months, 99% of our clients did not even question what our safety measures were regarding COVID-19. This is clearly sign of reliability and trust consideration towards us and the immense willingness (in a conscious way) to travel again. We anxiously await for travel procedure and policy reestablishment and for universal and uniformed rules for who ever travels not only from Europe but from the rest of the world to Portugal.

At 100rumos we are preparing the new season! New services, new destinations, the same quality and responsibility standards for those who choose us. The 100rumos website will be more interactive, more functional and closer to our clients’ needs. We are working on itineraries and online guides so that our client can continue to be guided by us even when traveling by their own means.

We are also developing a faster and improved response and performance for disruptions, not only by air - which we already work on - but also by sea and land.

At OvO, our worldwide transfers platform, we will increase our offer of 70 to 100 destinations.

We are active, full of work to do with new ideas and eager to continue to innovate and be the most trusted brand in Portugal.

I wish everyone health and courage.

Update July

Jeudi, juillet 16, 2020

120 days have gone by. They have allowed to reflect, restructure and relearn how to wait.
The aviation industry in Portugal, to this day, has only reestablished 25% of its routes compared to before the pandemic. Most of the routes are ethnic. International tourism, with which we work, is resuming very slowly due to the constraints imposed by many countries. How people will travel in the near future is still uncertain.

We maintain a strong concern in our social responsibility in the Covid-19 era: complying with the law. Complying with all security and hygiene requirements. For our safety and the safety of our passengers.

While witnessing a slow upturn, the parallel market - which does not follow the law therefore without costs or commitments - is gaining ground. Lowering prices must not be the strategy taken. Undeclared commissions must be audited and heavily punished.

Fair and reasonable prices considering the new costs undertaken should be the practice.
I therefore appeal to the partners that work with 100rumos - don’t be conniving with unlawfulness. Let us be supportive of one another and we can at least achieve survival.

Portugal awaits for you. 100rumos awaits you.

Update June

The Portuguese have proven to be exemplary in the way we dealt with COVID-19 pandemic. Currently we have around 250 new cases daily, most in the Metropolitan Region of Lisbon which has about 3 million inhabitants.

Despite our vehicle capacity being reduced (as a guarantee of safety and distance between passengers), we will maintain the same rates.

May Update

Mercredi, avril 29, 2020

Dear partners, dear clients,

In the beginning of the month of may, the state of emergency in Portugal will be lifted. With this, the government intends that companies as well as population, resume their social and economic life so we can gradually return to “normal".
Assuring social distance between drivers and passengers, certifying our vehicles disinfection before each service and protecting our drivers with masks, are the main measures we’ll implement as our activity returns.
To guarantee the distance between drivers and passengers, we have defined that all transfers and tours will be operated in 8 seater vans, but limited to 4 passengers each.
We will assume the operational cost of these limitations:

- Requests from 1 to 4 pax: we’ll operate in 1 van with the capacity for 8 passengers - the rate for 1 sedan will apply
- Requests from 5 to 7 pax: we’ll operate in 2 vans, with the capacity of 8 passengers each - the rate for 1 van will apply

These measures apply to bookings in Porto, Lisbon, Funchal, Faro and Ponta Delgada. For other destinations, current rates apply considering we’ll only operate in 8 seater vans, limited to 4 passengers each.

- For group requests that involve passenger transportation by bus: will be reviewed case by case ensuring that we can grant the recommended distance between passengers.
- For meeting, events, leisure or business activities, our proposal will always contemplate safety, distance and hygiene measures applied.

We are confident that you’ll recognize the huge effort we are committing to in order to ensure that traveling will not be a concern nor haunted by fear. Traveling should be about recording good memories, relaxation, laughter and desire to repeat Portugal. With these measures, we want you to know that we care about the quality and safety of the services we provide to our clients.
Wishing a speedy return to normal.
