Airports and planes

New measures have been introduced, such as readily available hand sanitiser stations throughout airports, and all planes will be disinfected thoroughly between each flight. At some airports you can even pre-book security slots to avoid the queues.

Hotels

As hotels prepare to reopen, destination governments have been working hard to keep the safety and security of customers in mind. Each of them have put a set of stringent requirements in place for hotels to re-open this summer. As you may have seen in the news, most holiday regions are now already opening up ahead of the UK. This means you’ll still be able to enjoy your stay to the fullest (in a socially distanced way, of course). Some hotel facilities may be adapted or stay closed until they can open safely. If you require any specific information about a property please contact us and we will do our best to find out.

Destination restrictions

We advise that, before booking, you check any travel restrictions that may be in place for your chosen destination. You can view this on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website. Please follow any government advice while you are in resort, too.

Planning for your holiday

What happens if my chosen hotel is unavailable?

It is our responsibility to make sure that your holiday goes to plan, and that you and your fellow holidaymakers are looked after for the duration of your stay. Therefore, if – for any reason – your chosen hotel is unavailable, we will look to find you a suitable alternative, to the same or better standard and we will be in touch if this is the case.

What new health and safety measures are airports and airlines implementing?

From the moment you arrive at the airport, your wellbeing comes first. New measures have been introduced, such as readily available hand sanitiser stations throughout airports, and all planes will be disinfected thoroughly between each flight. At some airports you can even pre-book security slots to avoid the queues.

Holidaymakers will be expected to wear masks and all boarding passes must be presented on a mobile device, rather than a print-out. Additional checks may be in place, so giver yourself plenty of time to get through the airport. It’s important that you check the websites of both your airline and departure airport for the most up-to-date information on this before you travel.

How are hotels preparing for holidays to resume?

As hotels prepare to reopen, destination governments have been working hard to keep the safety and security of customers in mind. Each of them have put a set of stringent requirements in place for hotels to re-open this summer.

As you may have seen in the news, most holiday regions are now already opening up ahead of the UK. This means you’ll still be able to enjoy your stay to the fullest (in a socially distanced way, of course). Some hotel facilities may be adapted or stay closed until they can open safely. Please check with your chosen hotel for more details on what to expect upon arrival.

Will all the facilities at my hotel be open?

Our hotels are reopening and, with that, we are committed to ensuring that all of our guests can enjoy their holidays to their fullest, whilst maintaining the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved.

You may find that, for the time being, some destinations and resorts will have their own hygiene requirements and certain amenities will temporarily be limited or unavailable. Rest assured that these are simply precautionary measures and shouldn’t get in the way of you enjoying your beach break.

As a result of this, some of the information on our website may not always be entirely accurate; however, we will do our very best to keep you updated with any changes to your individual booking. If there is a significant change to your hotel, we will be in touch with your options.

What can I do to protect myself while I'm away?

The health and safety of our customers is our number one priority. The best way to protect yourself while you enjoy your holiday is to continue to follow advice from the World Health Organisation and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

What happens if there's a case of Covid-19 in the hotel I'm due to travel to in the next 14 days?

Rest assured that in the unlikely event that your chosen hotel is affected by Covid-19 before you travel, we will do everything we can to find you an alternative you’ll love.

Are there any restrictions in place from local authorities in resort?

We advise that, before booking, you check any travel restrictions that may be in place for your chosen destination. You can view this on the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website. Please follow any government advice while you are in resort, too.

Do I need any additional documentation to travel?

Some destination airports may require you to follow specific protocols whilst travelling and upon arrival. For further information about this please see our airport measures page.

For any passengers travelling with Enter Air, there may be some additional declaration forms required. Please see their website for further information.

Will I need to quarantine when I return to the UK?

The government has announced that there is no longer a 14-day quarantine in place for travelers returning from destinations with a reduced risk of Covid-19 transmission. For a full list of all destinations which are exempt from quarantine rules please see the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website.

I have transfers arranged whilst on holiday - what safety measures will be put in place?

Our transfers partner has put together this useful guide highlighting the precautions and safety measures that they are taking to ensure your wellbeing whilst abroad.
