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, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. Always check this before making a booking.​

  • Covid-19 tests, some destinations that we currently can travel to, require a negative Covid-19 test before departing the UK. For example, Cyprus require a negative test no earlier than 72 hours of arrival into the country, these tests can only be obtained by using a private facility, we strongly advise against using the NHS, and you should check the availability of private testing before making a confirmed booking, other destinations require a similar test.​

  • 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 offer a covid-19 policy are Holiday Extras, https://www.holidayextras.com/travel-insurance.html, the company, are offering an online chat facility for enquiries.
