Coronavirus (COVID-19) travel updates

The UK government has announced that travel is now permitted between the UK and a number of international destinations. 

It's worth noting, however, that although the UK government has eased restrictions for travel to certain destinations, including Norway and Finland,  you may still be subject to quarantine and other restrictions on arrival in your intended destination. 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.
