Holiday Safety

Before you travel

We have always recommended that individuals should have adequate travel insurance which is especially important now due to the recent global pandemic of Covid-19. Please see our Holiday Insurance Page for further information and ensure you have adequate cover for cancellation or curtailment.  

It is important to check the latest advice for the country you’re travelling to, paying particular attention to the entry requirements and also for returning to the UK. Foreign travel advice for Cape Verde  & Government rules for entering England. Please be mindful that the information given is only for travel at the present time and is not necessarily applicable for later this year so do check it regularly.


At the airport

Every airport is different, so we suggest reading the advice from the UK airport you’re departing from. Here are some general tips to keep in mind before travelling.

  • Please download boarding passes prior to travel if possible. 
  • The checking of personal documentation might mean that check in, security checks and boarding the aircraft may take a considerable amount of time, so make sure you arrive at the airport with plenty of time to spare.
  • Make use of the hand sanitisers located around the airport and wash your hands regularly. 
  • Some outlets may ask for card payments only.


Safety on holiday

The safety of our customers on holiday is our prime consideration. We request that all hotels comply with local regulations applicable in their country, but it’s important to be aware that they sometimes do not match the standards we have in the UK for health and safety. We’re committed to working with our partners to identity areas where safety can be improved. We would encourage our customers to talk to other members in their party about the need to take care when travelling abroad and to be aware of the possible risks. To help with this, please refer to the further information listed below.
