Coronavirus Holiday Update

Coronavirus Holiday Update - 08th March 2021

As advised by the UK Government, it is currently illegal to go on an overseas holiday before 17th May 2021 at the earliest. Further details are planned to be annouced on 12th April 2021 by The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) taskforce who will detail travel regulations from 17th May. We will update this page as soon as we have those details. The previous travel corridor list has now ceased to operate. Please click here for Government Travel Advice and information on bookings departing shortly.

Whilst it is currently illegal to travel on an overseas holiday, it is not illegal to book a future holiday abroad. Infact, if you were to plan ahead now most operators and agents have flexible low deposit options. Booking now with a low deposit will also allow you to book low priced holidays too, as once the travel industry gets going again, the current prices are likely to increase so now is the ideal time to beat the rush.

More good news regarding insurance cover for Covid-19. Travel insurance firms Staysure, Holiday Extras, Just Travel Cover and Saga have all announced that Covid-19 can be covered within their overseas holiday policies, whilst Rock Insurance have also agreed to offer cover even if the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office have advised against all but essential travel.

At the time of writing, reports state both Jet2holidays & Jet2 airlines were encouraged by the volume of customer bookings for 2021, as they look forward to start flying again. So much so, Jet2holidays has increased capacity by almost 1 million additional seats compared with their 2019 capacity, this includes six new routes (Belfast to Larnaca (Cyprus), Birmingham to Lesbos (Greece), Birmingham to Kalamata (Greece), Leeds/Bradford to Santorini (Greece), Leeds/Bradford to Skiathos (Greece) and Leeds/Bradford to Lisbon (Portugal). Jet2holidays summer 2021 programme is now on sale with deposits from £60pp. Jet2 holiday fights have now resumed.
