Travel information centre

Welcome to our travel information centre, where you'll find a collection of informative articles, designed to help you plan ahead for a return to international travel.

As you'll no doubt be aware, the UK government has been laying out the road map to restarting holidays and we’ll soon have details of which destinations will be on the ‘green list’.

In preparation for travelling abroad again, we thought we'd share some informative guidance on the important things to consider when planning your time away, from the ins and outs of PCR testing to passport renewal and travelling to Europe in a post-Brexit world

The travel traffic light system

With a proposed return to international travel on 17th May, the UK government has set out a new traffic light system based on Covid-19 risk levels, with each destination given a status of green, amber or red. Find out how it all works with our simplified guide, outlining what each level means and what you need to consider when planning your holiday.

PCR testing

An integral part of travel, at least in the short term, a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test will be required not only when you return to the UK, but will also be a likely requirement for many international destinations. Below, you'll find information on what these tests are, how you go about getting one and how much they're likely to cost. 

Passport renewal

As we wait for the world to open up, it's vital to be well prepared. Be sure to check the validity of your passport and, if you need to renew it, allow plenty of time – the government is currently advising a 10 week wait time. You can renew your passport online here.
