Covid-19 Advice and travelling 

The situation with travelling abroad is a fluid one, and as such the advice that we are giving below is correct at the time of adding.

Many countries apart from the U.K have their own entry requirements; this can be confusing, the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) may advise that its safe travel, for example, to Canada, however, the Canadian government require all non-Canadians to quarantine for 14 days on arrival. This is a crucial point to remember.

  • https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus, the U.K government, has a fully comprehensive Covid-19 section on their website, such information as below can be found:

  • Entering or returning to the UK

  • Guidance for travelling abroad

  • Countries you can travel from without self-isolating.

  • Countries exempt from advice against non-essential travel

  • Safer air travel guidance for passengers

Some other companies may purport to give advice, however something I have learnt is the only people qualified to do this, is the UK authorities, always check what you are being told.

  • Visa requirements, most if not all foreign immigration departments, have cancelled visas, this includes, although not an exhaustive list, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. Always check this before making a booking.​

  • Covid-19 tests, Most destinations you will travel to, will require some sort of negative Covid test to enter, this could be a PCR test or Antigen test.​ The destination pages located via the UK government website will assist you in what requirements are needed, please see www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice 

  • Travel insurance, insurance is even more important than it's ever been before, you should make sure that your travel insurance policy covers you for covid-19, importantly for cancelling your holiday if you test positive in the days before departure. We do not sell travel insurance; however, one such company that offers a covid-19 policy are Holiday Extras, https://www.holidayextras.com/travel-insurance.html, the company, are offering an online chat facility for enquiries.
