Important update: Due to the discovery of the new Omicron variant of COVID-19, from 27th November all arrivals to the UK will be required to take a PCR test before the end of day 2 and self-isolate until a negative test is received. These new restrictions apply to all travellers no matter their vaccination status.

To help combat the spread of COVID-19, there are restrictions on travel and transport from a number of countries to the UK. You can find the full, up-to-date list here.

As the list of countries open for travel changes almost daily, we strongly advise that you check with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) prior to booking and again before travelling.

It is important to note that FCDO advice is issued in relation to imminent travel (which typically means holidays departing in the next two weeks). If you have a booking with us departing within two weeks, we will contact you as a priority if the situation prevents travel to your destination.
