Frequently Asked Questions
Particularly now that travel is starting to become possible again, it’s important to familiarise yourself with the official government travel advice. We recommend signing up to receive travel alerts for the destinations you will be travelling to.
In England, passengers inside the aeroplane must be wearing a mask/face covering. Some airlines may be operating a reduced in-flight food and beverage service. Other safety measures you may be asked to follow include:
- Remain seated where possible during boarding, your flight, and disembarking
- Use contactless payment methods wherever possible (i.e. for duty free or food purchases)
- Tell a member of staff immediately if you feel unwell
There are different processes in place at different airports around the world, however be aware that you may:
- Find enhanced screening at gates and entryways
- Be asked to provide proof of COVID-19 testing
- Be required to undertake a period of quarantine upon arrival
Please ensure you seek out the latest FCO advice for your destination in advance of travel. It is highly recommended that you discuss taking a COVID-19 test with your local testing centre, GP or travel clinic.
If there are specific hotel/resort restrictions relevant to your holiday, our Travel Specialist will discuss these with you ahead of time.
If you are arriving in England from one of the countries on the government’s exemption list (and have not visited any countries not on the list), you are not required to quarantine, as of 10 July 2020. Please check the relevant government sites for the latest rules for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
All travellers who arrive in the UK from a country not on the exemption list are currently required to self-isolate for 14 days. We are constantly monitoring the latest advise and will let you know if anything changes.
Every hotel, villa, resort and property has undertaken their own measures and protocols, which we are in contact with them about. You will be advised of your hotel’s protocols when you speak to your Travel Specialist, but please do get in touch with any other queries.
If you begin to feel unwell at an airport or train station, do not start your journey and seek medical advice straight away.
You should self-isolate following the official government guidelines if you have any of the following symptoms:
- High fever
- New, persistent cough
- Loss of taste or smell
In your accommodation, you should:
- Stay indoors and avoid contact with others
- Follow local health guidance (where available)
- Contact your insurance and health provider for advice
It is essential that you take out travel insurance ahead of your holiday that covers illness, medical treatment and medical repatriation. In addition to your insurance, it’s vital to follow all local health guidelines and rules.
We recommend speaking to your insurance provider to clarify that COVID-19 is covered by your policy.
