In these unprecedented times, we wish to assure you that we remain fully operational and available by phone or email at all times. We are longing (as is everyone) for a return to normality but below please find some travel guidance notes on current restrictions.
Covid-19 Government Protocols
Prior to travel, please make absolutely sure that you comply with all protocols of the Government of your holiday destination as well as the UK Government protocols including the departure and arrival requirements. Destinations are changing their policies on a regular basis. We also strongly advise you check and seek travel insurance that covers for cancellations due to Covid-19 or medical assistance if required when abroad.
Testing Requirements and Options
We would strongly recommend that you organise all the tests you will require prior to your departure, and you can find the full list of the UK Government-recommended providers here.
Whilst it is often possible to arrange your test to return to the UK whilst you are away, we would advise organising this in advance with a company on the recommended list for peace of mind, as logistically local testing in your destination might not be well-equipped to cope with the volume of tourists, and they must also meet the UK government standards too.
Companies such as Qured and Collinson are offering test packages that you can purchase in the lead up to your holiday, and they will provide the PCR required before you leave the UK, the test that needs to be done whilst you are on holiday in order to re-enter the UK, and also those that you will need for either day 2 and day 8, or day 2 and day 5 of your home quarantine, depending on whether you opt for to use the test-to-release scheme. The test that you are required to do whilst on holiday is then done via video-call, so you will book a day and time for this when you purchase the package, and they then send you your test certificate via email which you can then show at the airport for your return flight to the UK. Regardless of the status of your destination on the UK traffic light system, these companies will be able to provide the relevant testing required for you, as they also provide ‘green’ testing packages too where required.
UK Return Form
You are required to complete this Form within 48 hours of your return flight to the UK. Please ensure you have your passport and booking details on hand in order to complete. You must show the completed form on arrival to the UK. The UK Government is also requiring pre-arrival covid tests and depending on your destination, you may be required to quarantine on your return back to the UK and take additional Covid tests after your arrival back in the country.
