We’re here, even before you’ve packed your bags…
Whether it’s before you depart for your trip or during your holiday, you will have round-the-clock support from our teams here in the UK and from your dedicated tour manager at your destination, as well as our 24-hour duty officers.
You can contact us at any time with questions, but due to the ever-changing situation, we will send you detailed up to date information that will cover all aspects of your holiday from start to finish a few weeks prior to your date of departure. Should you need to complete a COVID-19 health declaration (in line with current guidelines) prior to travelling, we will contact you. We may also need to send these declarations to our trusted partners, who have this as a condition of acceptance before travel.
