COVID-19

Fiona explains the current rules

COVID-19 has transformed international travel. Rules and regulations for travelling out of your home country and arriving at your destination, not to mention returning home again, can be complicated and fast changing.

Travelling out of the UK

We will check that the country you wish to visit is not on the UK Government’s ‘red list’ for travel. We will not send you to a country on the ‘red’ list.

Countries on the ‘red list’ are detailed here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/red-list-of-countries-and-territories

Arriving at your Destination

Each country has implemented unique entry requirements. Many countries require you to fill in an online health declaration form prior to arrival. Some require you to hold comprehensive travel insurance including COVID-19 cover. Some require to you to take a COVID test before entering. These requirements are changing constantly and we will update you as necessary.

Returning back to the UK

The UK requires you to complete a Public Health Passenger Locator Form before you return home. Details can be found at https://www.gov.uk/provide-journey-contact-details-before-travel-uk

Returning back to the UK

From 4am on 11 February a pre-departure COVID-19 test is now no longer required for fully vaccinated adults returning to the UK from a non-red country. For inward travel, all under-18s regardless of their individual vaccination status will be considered as fully vaccinated.

As rules and regulations are fast moving and subject to alteration without notice, once you have booked your holiday, we will keep you updated with Covid19 protocols as and when is necessary.

In the meantime, rest assured we are here for you. Use the coming weeks to plan your next holiday and contact us for friendly advice, holiday ideas or quotations.  We expect to demand to suddenly take off, so it’s never too early to plan.

With our COVID-19 FLEXIBLE BOOKING POLICY  you can be confident in making a booking, safe in the knowledge that in the event of further restrictions, we will be poised to rebook or refund your holiday arrangements as the situation allows.

THE FAR FRONTIERS TRAVEL/ARCTURUS COVID-19 FLEXIBLE BOOKING POLICY

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic Far Frontiers Travel/Arcturus will aim to make the booking process as flexible and confidence inspiring as possible and where special conditions apply will adopt the flexible booking policies of all our overseas suppliers.

In addition, we offer our own layer of flexibility where your travel plans may be affected by any future COVID-19 outbreak and I will personally work with you to achieve the best outcome:

a)    Should the UK Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) change its guidance to advise against all but essential travel to the destination you are booked to visit, you have the option to postpone your holiday, rebook to a different destination or receive a refund.

b)    Should your booking be impacted by COVID-19 in any other way, you have the option to change the destination of your existing trip or if this is not possible to postpone your trip to the next possible departure date. This will be done without us imposing additional charges. However, if applicable, you would be required to cover any difference in cost for the new trip.
