After all this talk of air bridges and travel corridors from the
UK to other countries, they are finally here. But it can be quite
confusing to know what all of this means in practicality. What is
an air bridge? Essentially, it is an agreement between two
countries which allows people to travel between the two for a
holiday without needing to quarantine either end. This means that
you won't have to hole up in isolation for 14 days once you arrive
in your destination, or self-isolate at home once you return to the
UK. Basically, a normal holiday(ish).
With the ever-changing landscape of this pandemic, the list of
countries where you can go on holiday may fluctuate quite
considerably, so we wanted to make this a one-stop-shop page for
Covid-19 travel updates. The countries in the collection below have
the green light for visitors, and we'll be updating it every day to
make sure it's as accurate as possible.
So that covers the question of where can I go on holiday, but
what about the how? For starters, we know that the booking
experience is probably a little more worrying now than it has been
before, so our Coronavirus
Confidence page has all the details of everything we're doing
to make the experience of booking and travelling as smooth as
possible. You can book with confidence, knowing that all of our
holidays are ABTA and ATOL approved; enjoy flexibility on all
Original Diving trips; and even have a pain-free airport experience
as you're met on arrival and escorted through the check-in and
security checks by somebody who knows the quickest route.
Secondly, we're advocating our new 'Travel Less, Travel Better'
philosophy. Whether this means going on a multi-stop road trip to
Europe from the UK rather than flying, or simply lingering longer
in your chosen destination to get to know it a little better, we
can, as always, organise private tours and experiences and book you
the best most charming accommodation around to make the most of
your precious holiday time.
We've been dreaming about travelling #OneDaySoon and now that
day is here.
