Important: Spain FCO update

As of 27th July, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advises British nationals against non-essential travel to Spain including the Balearics & Canary Islands. If you have a booking to Spain departing in the next two weeks, please contact us to discuss making changes to your travel arrangements.

Travel to 'Covid-safe' destinations

As travel restrictions are eased, the UK government has announced that travel is now permitted between the UK and a number of international destinations. 

It is  important to note, however, that while the UK government is allowing travel to these destinations, the destination country may still have quarantine or other restrictions in place. Please check before you travel.

If a destination does not appear on the list, then the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice against non-essential travel remains. It is important to note that FCO advice is issued in relation to imminent travel (which typically means holidays departing in the next two weeks) and it is too early to say that your holiday can't go ahead as planned if you are booked to travel further ahead.

If you are travelling due to travel to a country that does not appear on the 'safe travel' list, we are prioritising clients with holidays departing imminently. In these instances, we will continue to contact clients in departure-date order and ask for your patience.

Air bridges

You can explore our recommended 'air bridge' holidays to 'Covid-safe' destinations here.

What is an 'air bridge'?

An ‘air bridge’, or ‘travel corridor’, is a route between two countries that travellers can use without the need to quarantine. They will allow people from countries with a low risk of Coronavirus infection to travel to the UK and, most importantly, vice versa.

What does an 'air bridge' mean for my holiday plans?

To start with, air bridges will be in place to link the UK with destinations deemed to be Covid-safe. As a holidaymaker, you’ll be able to book with confidence, knowing that you won’t have to face a 14-day quarantine either on arrival in that country, or on your return home.

What will my holiday experience be like?

While each country has different regulations surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak, and with the situation still evolving daily, you may well have questions about the destination you’ll be travelling to. While we’ll do our best to answer these, you may also want to browse our destination information pages, where we’ve added some useful links to the most recent updates:
