Planning and booking your next holiday
Are there entry requirements to the country I want to travel to?
We advise checking your government’s most up-to-date information about entry requirements and restrictions for the country you would like to travel to. For UK clients this will be available at the FCDO website and US clients can check the Department of State Travel Advisories website.
Can I get travel insurance to cover COVID-19?
It is very important to have comprehensive travel insurance when booking your next holiday, and we require all those travelling with us to have an appropriate policy. We can put you in contact with our preferred insurance partner, Campbell Irvine, who offer cover for many COVID-19 situations. See our travel insurance page for more information.
What if I or a close family member get COVID-19 before I am due to go on my holiday?
If you contract COVID-19 and are unable to travel on your holiday this will be treated as any illness stopping you from travelling. You should refer to your travel insurance provider to make sure that this situation would be covered.
