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.


From 4am on 15th January 2021, passengers arriving from all international destinations will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result before departing for England to help protect against new strains of coronavirus circulating internationally. 

From 15th December 2020, travellers arriving into the UK from any destination will be able to reduce the mandatory quarantine period by paying for a Covid test 5 days after returning to the country.
