We will travel again

We believe that travel will start up again and that we can look forward positively to 2021 and 2022 and to riding, once again, all over the world in stunning places. Please do call or email us. We spend a lot of time keeping up to date with the travel requirements here in the UK and around the world and would be pleased to help and advise you.

Booking a new holiday

We are taking new bookings for all our destinations for holidays from June 2021 through to 2022. If new travel restrictions are introduced after you have booked then we will not charge you to defer your holiday to a new date (although there may be a rate change if you move to a different season).

If you are looking to get away in the next couple of months then you need to be realistic about the challenges involved. Under current UK COVID-19 restrictions, you must not leave home or travel internationally on holiday. None of us know for sure, but we hope the situation has changed by April/May. When travel restarts you should accept that you will most likely have to test prior to departure on holiday and you may need to quarantine on return. Government travel restrictions change at very short notice. The situation for a country, which currently has no Foreign Office restrictions on travel and no requirement to quarantine on return, can change at a couple of days notice, or even whilst you are on holiday.

If Government restrictions on travel mean that you cannot go on your holiday which was booked prior to March 2020.

We and the ride operator very much hope that you will wish to defer to 2021. There are no change fees but for a few destinations there may be an adjustment in the price if you travel in a different season.

If you cannot commit to a date then we can issue you a credit voucher for use against a future holiday. Our way of supporting the ride operator through these difficult times is for you to commit to visiting them at a future date. However, if you prefer you can have a refund of what you have paid. * We are contacting everyone with a holiday in the next three weeks. You don't need to do anything, we will contact you. Thank you for your patience.
* change fees and some sundry charges on your booking are not refundable.

Cancelling or postponing a holiday some months away?

If you are concerned about travelling at a future date then it may be possible to postpone your trip to a later date. Please email and we will discuss it with the ride operator. Credit vouchers or refunds are only possible when we know for sure that your holiday cannot take place.

If you want to cancel your trip while the holiday is still scheduled, then the ride operator’s cancellation charges would apply. Please call or email for details of the cancellation charges. If cancellation is your preferred option, we would suggest you contact your insurance company to see whether you are able to recover cancellation charges.

If the final balance is due on your holiday and there are currently government restrictions preventing travel

Please hold off paying your final balance for the moment. We have changed the final balance due date to four weeks prior to your holiday. At that point we will hopefully know whether your holiday is likely to go ahead.  This will not affect the status of your booking and we will not make any changes without talking to you first.

Changing or getting a refund of flights?

Each airline has its own policy with regards to refunds and rebooking of flights, so we recommend you check the airline website or call them to ascertain their current policy.

For More Information

Our primary source of guidance is the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Travel Advice. You can access the advice on individual countries here.

Under current UK Covid-19 restrictions, you must stay at home. You can check the rules which apply to you if you live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Arrivals into the UK are required to show proof of a completed passenger locator form (PLF) at the UK border and are required to self-isolate for the first 10 days. All international arrivals into the UK must provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test. The precise rules depend on whether you are arriving into England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

From 15 February, when you enter England from abroad you must follow the new requirements for quarantining and taking additional Covid-19 tests.

Passengers arriving into England can use the Test to Release for International Travel scheme and will have the option to take a test from a private provider after 5 days of self-isolation, with a negative test result releasing them from the need to self-isolate.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control summarises the Covid-19 situation across the world and provides data which may be used to influence future decisions on quarantine.
